    Tonkin (my war), non-existent WMDs, (my son’s), now we’ve got Saudis, Netanyahu, and Wally Walrus and pals trying to start a war with Iran. Might be interesting to find out what Mossad, CIA, and Saudis are up to.

    They need to get consensus, they have all kinds of satellite pictures left over from the lead up to the Iraq debacle. They will relabel them to IRAN.

    Mike do you remember your “supreme leader”’s thoughts on that subject?

    What I don’t get about this whole thing, they are claiming the ships were mined by Iran and they have a video of Iran removing a mine from a ship, at least 10 feet above the waterline, based on how they were standing on the deck.

    Forgive my ignorance, I’ve only been in the military for over 20 years and working with them for over 20 more, but my concept of naval mines are that they are designed to attach and detonate below the waterline, in order to, y’know, sink a ship (holes below the waterline tend to allow water to come in and make it hard to plug the leak). What do these mines do, jump for joy when a ship comes near and give a hug high up? A naval version of a Bouncing Betty? How does that even work (for those who know the concept of how a Bouncing Betty works)?

    Something doesn’t smell right here.

    I’m not convinced either way. I don’t trust the current administration. There is too much lying. How do you pick out the truth. It’s a sad commentary. (Sorry about using tinys pick up word.)

    Keep in mind Trump’s promoting the Fox Business video which was doctored to make it look like Pelosi was slurring her words.

    Let’s make a big assumption here, just for a moment; that Iran is responsible for sabotaging its own main source of revenue – oil exportation. What sort of global support would the US get from its allies? We’ve alienated every single friendly ally on the globe. As pointless as Iraq and Afghanistan were (anybody remember “Mission Accomplished”?), the US could gain global support.

    What do you suppose the chances of that are now?

    The president, by his words and actions, has proven to be a complete and total phony, a liar, a person who will do anything to keep the attention on him and his bigly accomplishments. How can the words of him and Chickenhawk Bolton be trusted regarding the actions of Iran?

    I believe the Japanese on ship are not convinced it was Iran… thought they saw something in the air. Shady info. Remember WMDs and here we are still in Iraq with no WMDs. GW didn’t have a reputation for lying and yet he did. I highly doubt Trump’s admin, known for lying daily… hourly, would be telling the truth about the attacks on the ships. Look at Saudi Arabia as well as others in the area.

    Evidence from WWII indicates that it is very difficult to sink a tanker. Yes, they did, but most took days to burn up. And that was with the old single hull design in use at the time. It is even more difficult now that the tankers have double hulls.

    So who is ruffling the eagle’s feathers? Is it possible that Iran is not in full control of its ambitious regional proxies?

    No doubt Mr. Ramirez is erect and ready to personally join the war with Iran. Right?

    Dear NeoCon Hawks, pay for your last two wars before you start another. The Military still hasn’t recovered from two middle eastern wars that are still sucking trillions that you waged on credit.

    A lot of good comments here! Doesn’t it get down to the question of who expects to profit from a war against Iran? Like, f’r instance maybe Saudi Arabia in their drive for regional hegemony? Or Neyanyahu, who was loudly against the multi-nation agreement with Iran? Or Bolton, who thinks wars are just dandy and the perfect answer to any international problem? I don’t think Iran wants war, I know Iraq doesn’t want to be in the middle of it nor does Lebanon or Jordan. And I do know that the US has lied its way into war more than once.

    News reports said the American navy was assisting those ships, so I assume this was a Navy video. Now, I have to wonder why the Navy didn’t just go over and capture the men on that boat?

    What a shame. goComics archives for Ramirez only go back to July 2006. It would be interesting to see his work the last time a Republican president started an unjust, illegal war.

    The Trump administration is not to be trusted. Here is another claim against Iran.

    The Taliban claimed an attack on U.S. forces. Pompeo blamed Iran.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2019/06/15/taliban-claimed-an-attack-us-forces-pompeo-blamed-iran/

    But why would the Taliban be allied with Iran?

    From https://www.thenational.ae/uae/what-do-the-taliban-really-want-1.527418

    “A predominantly Pashtun movement, the Taliban came to prominence in Afghanistan in the autumn of 1994. It is commonly believed that they first appeared in religious seminaries – mostly paid for by money from Saudi Arabia – which preached a hard line form of Sunni Islam. ..The world is divided into believers and infidels. The Taliban claim jihad is the sixth pillar of Islam, Shia are heretics and anyone who does not agree with these views may be excommunicated and killed. "

    Note that Iran is Shia, not Sunni. The Saudis are the main driver for Sunni fundamentalist Muslims. Do these Trump dingbats even know the difference between Protestants and Catholics? They sure are clueless on the differences between Shia and Sunni.

    let’s see is there any similarity to the Gulf of Tonkin attacks, Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction and possibly the attacks on 9/11 to the Gulf of Oman tankers?

    I’m fairly certain Bolton wants this war; I am not convinced that Trump does. He’s a bully. Bluster, threaten, bluster; repeat with some other enemy (foreign or domestic).
