If "this" is it(which I am uncertain of), what exactly are all the bitches whining about? You basically traded low level economic damage and zero American or ally lives for the removal of one of the deadliest generals in one of the most dangerous Anti American regions...

Its really been eye opening of late. I dont exactly endorse assassinating foreign leaders, but the fact that liberals hate Trump so much that they are defending known terrorists is pretty alarming.

Well, actually 165 ally lives, because Flight 752 would not have been accidentally shot out of the sky by the Iranians.  So not really casualty free...165 civilians were killed.  Cheers!

have you heard of the concept, proximate cause?

Proximate cause would support what I'm saying...that the chain of events was initiated by the U.S....not sure what you are referring to?  Cheers!

not the way US courts interpret it.....not reasonably foreseeable that Iran would shoot down a commercial airline leaving from its own airport days after a targeted killing in another country

It would be reasonably foreseeable that there would be non-targeted casualties from any engagement...be it from the U.S. side or Iranian side.  The Iranian's accidentally shot down a passenger airline by deploying its missile defense system against any U.S. engagement. 

I don't blame the U.S., just like I wouldn't blame someone who side-swiped my car while driving.  But if I decide to go after that other driver, and accidentally force another car off the road...well, most of the blame is mine, but a little belongs to the asshole who side-swiped my car. 

Frankly, I think Trump did the right thing if there was an actual imminent threat.  If this is another lie and there was no impending threat, then I think he's as culpable as the Iranians.  Especially based on the fact that his own staff gave him the Soulemani hit as the last resort option.  Cheers!
No man is a failure who has friends!

Hard to make a case that it is the US fault that Iran downed an airplane with their rogue anti aircraft missile while taking off from their airport at the same time they were shooting missiles at Iraq/US bases. I think the protesters in Iran certainly know who to blame.

There is a wide range of pot. outcomes to this affair and I donít know if encouraging the protesters is going to help or if Iraq kicks out US  troops from their country, which imo could be a big win for Iran. Getting out there ASAP may be the best option, but leaving on good terms rather than getting kicked out is preferable.

Where is the blame for Obama to give Iran everything that they ever dreamed of, then to support a war such as the one in Yemen?

How many died? 165?

What I read right now is well beyond stupidity. Iran shoots down a civilian plane taking off from its own airport and it is Trump's fault?

Cause and effect?

More like leftists having lost it!

I take it people didn't hear the embarrassing rant by the moron at Maple Leaf foods. When your 1/3/5 year stock performance sucks a big one, pivot and attack Trump I guess...

Oh I did unfortunately as it was top headline yesterday in financial news in Canada.

Just another frustrated leftist who owns 38% of the company and thinks that he can do whatever he pleases. Who cares about shareholder returns as long as he is fat? Actually you should look at 20 or 30 years return to get a full picture!

Too bad that none of that frustration went against Turdeau which will do absolutely nothing to punish Iran for this behavior. He will probably try to do his best along with Europeans to give them another nuclear deal so they can continue building the bomb in secrecy...
