He needlessly broke the nuclear deal with Iran, the relationship was as cordial as it had been between the 2 for ages and now look. It's totally on Trump.

So wrong and no real grasp of situation, post your facts why its Trumps fault vs blabbing.

Here you are, Trumps very own blabbing............https://www.npr.org/2017/10/13/557622096/transcript-trump-s-remarks-on-iran-nuclear-deal

He broke the deal because it was not his deal, just like he has with several other deals made before his term

re @ Kniknaknokkaer: Get it straight won't you and quit the foolish Trump bashing, put the your facts together and post the truth: Here it is:

Iran retaliated aggressively, as expected, but Mr. Pompeo, 56 not POTUS, will be the man who helps lead the United States into another conflict in the Middle East — breaking one of Mr. Trump’s key campaign promises just as the president faces re-election.

And that is a fact. IMO I would go for the jugular of Iran and take out the top period!!

@ToastedHeretic:Will you be following your own advice and signing up for combat?

Already done 4 tours, 1 more will not make a difference. At the ready not cowering like many Trump bashers and US haters but for some weird reason call themselves Americans and yet threaten our very existence. God Bless America, President Trump and my military brothers and sisters.

concur: with your post: The US has been meddling in Iranian affairs for generations. Not just the US, of course but other countries including Russia and Britain. Time for an end to imperialism and slaughter. We had no business being involved in the Middle East even for oil considering there are other sources much closer to home to get it from and instead ruined those relationships vs bringing them closer.

Death to Israel. Israel had nothing to do with the strikes, but like Trump makes it an easy target vs getting to know and understand the real culprits behind the scenes calling the plays.

This is not the time for Trump bashing but uniting as a country, regardless of who is in office or Congress. We must stand united at all times against any kinds of threats period. Too late to do who started what in a region heavily involved in war for thousands of years. The US must stand together and people who call themselves Americans should put an end to their whining and man up.

@Toasted Heretic;Do you actually follow current affairs or have an awareness of history and context?

Question and conviction is do you? So far you have given no substantial evidence to support your post. That area has been in wars since before the US was even founded.

Posted in: Pentagon distances itself from Trump threat to hit Iranian cultural sites See in context

I and many stand, support and WE clearly, proudly support POTUS at the ready. If IRAN or any nation wants war with the US, we are not backing down anymore or cowering behind cowards. Too many past POTUS"s have been weak and wishy washy with more talk talk talk that has led to this. Finally someone bold to walk the talk. Whoever said the Pentagon does not support POTUS is FAKE NEWS.

I bought a kitchen knife to kill someone. I didn’t like the attitude of the woman who I spoke to, so I thought of killing her.”

@ Yubaru : Probably pissed off because she was a tourist is more like it!

Yeah right, no way, more like fed up like a lot of customers and store owners with tourist who bring their attitudes with them rather than leave em at home.

Posted in: Tuna fetches ¥193.2 mil at New Year auction in Tokyo See in context

If someone can pay that much for a tuna, then they are surely making way too much yen. Seriously that money could have supported many projects as humanitarian aide to many victims from last years storms. It also means that too many people are eating out supporting this suishi house too. Aside that to real matters, what does one piece of that 193million Yen taste like, well do that math and pay the price of 10,000 Yen to find out.

As I have always stated, white collar crime pays and big too. Martha Stewart went to prison, still has millions, the TEPCO executives, all free and even more rich today, no prison, GHOSN ranks at the top, keeps all the money and no prison. need I say more proof is needed. Lebanon is only going through formalities. Ghosn more than likely is laughing and "kampai"

US Senator Chris Murphy: "Soleimani was an enemy of the United States. That’s not a question. The question is this - as reports suggest, did America just assassinate, without any congressional authorization, the second most powerful person in Iran, knowingly setting off a potential massive regional war?"

Patriot Act and Homeland Security. Read it.

Posted in: Lebanon receives Interpol red notice for ex-Nissan boss Ghosn See in context

My best guess the responses to any questioning would go something like this:

Four pilots response: I just flew the plane, that is my job. Sure, sure I looked and greeted the passengers but you see one guy you seen them all. I fly planes.

Airport ground staff: Hey, I guided the plane at loading tarmac, that's my job, don't care about who is getting on board.

Cargo Worker: Hey man, I just load the bags, Just doing my job, don't know about who is on plane, not my job.

Posted in: Court upholds compensation order over Iwakuni base noise See in context

What about the rest of the bases in Northern Tohoku. They get no compensation and the noise at times even rattles the roofs and windows of new homes as well as older homes. I was told there really is no need for pilots to thrust the engines like they are taking off for a war all the time and can do softer take offs and landings. Is this correct information? I can understand a JAL or ANA big aircraft, but an F16 for F4 plane? Why doesn't the government build them airports out in the countryside for takeoff and landing training.

What about the ones dressed up as cops and say it's ok do it. Based on the article it sounds like the restaurants, bars and pubs are behind the pressure with the amount of customers not visiting them and going to Lawsons or Family Mart for booze. Now how convenient go to pub, bar and restaurant drink all you want at a cost of course much higher than Lawsons. and of course the 10% tax.

@CrickyToday 06:49 pm JST

No she was not given an option, she wanted to marry and get a life but the IHA stepped in. It's not these individuals wantonly spending tax payers money it's a government agency that holds them hostage. They have dwindling resources and need too keep what they control.

Cricky not true at all. The IHA did not step in fully. The family themselves had a lot to do with it too. She had the option as all of them do. Quit, there is a constitution for everyone and they are no exception.
