Good morning kids. Thursday and the big story continues to be the aftermath of the liquidation of Iranian terrorist mastermind Queso Salmonella, or whatever the hell his vowel-deficient moniker was and the harmless “retaliation” from the Farsis. The President issued a statement yesterday morning that was an indisputable slam-dunk grand slam, both in tenor and in tone. No matter how the Democrat-Media Complex is going to try and spin this, this is already a yuuuge foreign policy and political win for OrangeManBad, and down the road it is going to pay even yuuuuger-er dividends in both those areas. I mean, next November in particular.
First off, by resisting what was probably incredible pressure to retaliate massively against rockets that either did nothing but disturb the Iraqi sand or malfunctioned on launch, the President made the mullahs look like fools in front of the world and more tellingly in front of their own furious and oppressed populace. The situation was not helped by some idiot manning a SAM site who downed a Ukrainian airliner either accidentally or worse, on orders from the mullahs to try and pin it on the Americans as a repeat of the regrettable downing of an Iranian airliner in 1988 by the USS Vincennes. In any case, evidently we had advance warning about the launch and the buzz is that the President allowed the Iranians to launch as a means to save face with their own people. Well, if that’s the case, then it failed and spectacularly given the results of the launch. And as for saving face with the Iranian people as well the so-called Arab street, that was an even bigger flop which could have even graver consequences for the regime going forward.
Circling back to the speech, the big takeaways are first, even before saying “good morning,” the President flat out declared that while he was commander-in-chief Iran would never be permitted to obtain a nuclear weapon. Second, after reassuring the American people that no US lives were lost or injured, the President did not mince his words in a stinging, 100% factual rebuke of Barak Obama and his administration for providing the money for the Iranians rockets in the form of releasing their frozen assets as well as the billions in cash delivered on pallets, without any authority or oversight that I’m aware of, I might add. The geschrei from the usual quarters was intense, as the former regime flunkies and stooges, and the propagandists in the media furiously attempted to defend their jug-eared stoner deity and his “legacy” by trying to claim otherwise. Fail. When you add that to the actions of the Iranians and the President’s plain talk about them and Obama, as well as every administration since 1979 (even Reagan’s to a small extent), anyone who was fooled into believing that Iran can be bargained with and is a rational actor has had their eyes opened, especially about the madness of that nuke deal. This to me is what really makes Trump great; his ability to speak the plain truth, unflinchingly and unapologetically, so that even those who have reservations about him (yet are not ideologically blinded) to nod their head and give grudging respect, and makes the Left’s counterarguments ring hollow and insane in the bargain. Win-win.
The President also offered an olive branch to the mullahs, as he had to, mostly to show those who accuse him of being a warmonger that he isn’t. And he isn’t. The real warmongers are Hillary Clinton and Obama, as a link below elucidates. That said, Trump knows full well that the mullahs will never honestly agree to disarm and change their evil ways. He also knows that they’re on the ropes thanks to the pressure of sanctions as well as a collapsing oil market thanks to America’s new position as the world leader in oil production and steadily decreasing reliance on Middle Eastern oil. By ramping up more pressure via sanctions and responding in extreme pinpoint fashion via very limited airstrikes as a last resort to any more Iranian attacks, there is a very good chance that the regime will collapse perhaps within the next year to 18 months, and without an American soldier setting foot on Persian soil.
As an aside, there is an outstanding, in-depth analysis of the situation by an Israeli think-tank that is well worth reading, IMHO. Click here (or below) for the link.

DOMESTIC POLITICS OF SOLEIMANI LIQUIDATION
Along with the spouting of halitosis and flatus from the usual assholes of the Left, the biggest disappointment, to put it mildly comes from people allegedly on our side of the aisle. First, there’s Rand “Luap the Lesser” Paul, whose Jekyll and Hyde switch is stuck on fool but most egregiously from Mike Lee, the junior Senator from the state of H1-B, who wants the troops home from Iraq and Trump to de-escalate tensions with Iran. Luap the Lesser I get; he’s got some recessive Silver Dime gene that flares up from time to time but Mike Lee is just a thinly-veiled open borders loving NeverTrumper and a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Chamber of Commerce. I think he senses an opportunity to ding the President while the latter, ironically enough, is doing exactly what he, Lee, claims he wants done. Total fraud and piece of shit. Utah and the nation deserve better than him and Pee-Air Defecto.

Hopefully the GOP will not do what it did in the first two years. Please G-d.
