Did we do it to justify a war with Iran and more payola for defense contractors?

Could you provide a bit more context, or a link?

If you are a conspiracy type person, that's pretty much the only explanation. Pretty sure Iran is not stupid enough to actually attack us and try to start a military conflict...

Thanks, pug. Now I see why ocho’s headline was so terse. As with the previous attacks, it’s not clear whose torpedos and mines are damaging and destroying these vessels. 🚢

Sorry posting from my phone very early hard to add URLs.

Notice how gold slept and oil only slightly stirred... it's not registering as a big event.

Ocho, just long press the address bar, COPY, type the post and then, in whitespace below the body of your post, long press,
PASTE. You probably already know that, but maybe JacksonM et al will see this.

Another handy phone tip: Text replacement. Settings ⇢ General ⇢ Keyboard... Set "qt" to expand as

Code: Select all

Saves a lot of time and frustration.

Reports say it was an "American-linked" tanker.

What the hell does that mean?

Funny thing is I thought this would be all over the T.V. news when I tuned in and I couldn't find a thing.

I guess there are more important things to talk about ... https://www.nationalreview.com/2019/06/ ... force-one/

So I guess if some evil entity is really trying to start a war in the Middle East (how hard can that be) they probably need to try harder.

It was on CNBC this morning. Maybe it fizzled out in the evening.

Retired General Wesley Clark, in his book, "Winning Modern Wars" (2003), describes his conversation with an officer in the Pentagon shortly after 9/11 regarding a plan to initiate a succession of attacks upon seven identified Middle Eastern countries: "As I went back through the Pentagon in November 2001, one of the senior military staff officers had time for a chat. Yes, we were still on track for going against Iraq, he said. But there was more. This was being discussed as part of a five-year campaign plan, he said, and there were a total of seven countries, beginning with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and finishing off Iran."

I really like Wesley Clark. For a brief time, I thought he had a shot at the presidency.

Dictatorships and theocracies are unacceptable, the question is does non-military intervention work better than military.
