I would not be surprised if the rocket in Baghdad and the attacks on tankers in the Persian Gulf were made by CIA. So far the US has very often justified their wars with lies. In Vietnam as well as in Iraq. The US war consequences are always Europe falling on their feet. A JOKE !! IF MR. JIMMY CARTER HAD NOT PUT THE MULLAHS IN IRAN 40 YEARS AGO, THEN TODAY 10 MILLION PEOPLE - killed by this corrupt regime- WOULD STILL BE ALIVE . NO FIGHTING IN THIS REGION ANDPARADISE WHAT IS CALLED IRAN. GREEDY AMERICANS DID NOT WANT TO PAY FOR OIL. DISGRACEFUL
The current Trump admin should not be supported by its allies for all the disrespectful reasons Trump has shown them. If you start this war, hope Russia or Hungary back you up cause the rest of us will not under your horrible republican president who we do not trust or support.😥 That trump administration created wht a bunch of losers they know nothing about foreign policy especially donald he know nothing but how to destroy our democracy
That's because the wrath of God is about to carpet bomb Iran! LET FREEDOM RING! I wonder who caused it? Oh Trump. They don’t even trust him. Too funny. They have more in common with the Americans than they thought Trump just wants a war, he is so unstable. Another CNN supported war based on a lie. Well,looks like its donnies turn.
Look, I googled this for you. And So It Begins!!!...
U.S. State Department evacuates diplomats from Iraq as Iran tensions mountThe State Department urged citizens to leave Iraq as soon as possible and avoid all U.S. facilities within the country. Invaders evacuating the invaders, lmao! Wag a dog- any dog will do- the ultimate distraction - a war. lauferlaw *As Republicans create Iran tensions purposefully to lie us into another war.
Did the British or other countries call to evacuate their citizens Worries me. Well there goes my family vacation to Baghdad What will the American people do if he goes full on with this stupid posturing & it turns deadly? Will you THEN rise up & challenge the idiot & his administration? We need to kick Iran's ars once and for all!
Did they also warn against travel to Holland and miniature golf courses to avoid risk of wind cancer? Mmmmm!!!!!!!! Wel welllllll..... Man how can you believe anything Trump staffers say.? Starts at the top, what happened to not agreeing with each other and expressing your views why not.He has his party lie to us each and every day, what a disgrace to our way of life.
State Department orders non-emergency personnel to leave Iraq postsAn earlier warning urged Americans in the country to avoid places known as gathering places for U.S. citizens and to keep a low profile. Am I the only one that see this. Trump is going to start a war to try and win another election, thinking that you can never switch pitchers during war time? Why? Looks like ol' Doc Bolton has prescribed some high explosive Approval Dysfunction meds to try to get realDonaldTrump's flaccid ratings pointing upwards with a little Wag The Dog bombing of Iran.
Cnn the place to go for news. NOT!! The idiot in chief is going to bankrupt the country, take us back 50 years in human rights and get us in more wars. Vote him out! US citizens should be warned against voting for neocons who keep constantly bring the country to the brink of war The second in command said there was no threat.
Now thats Fake News! Since the “crisis at our southern border” isn’t getting trump the attention he craves he is now trying to use Iran as his next “crisis” attention getter 😡😡 Canada stood with the USA in Afghanistan , post 9-11. But if you attack Iran, you’re on your own. cmmcd Didn't really need anybody to tell me not to go to Iraq. I don't have any statistics telling me this but as an American I'm sure there are many places that are not safe for us to go now. Donald Trump has not made a safer world , far from it.
This is our way of creating plausible deniability before we get ready to fuck another country without buying her dinner first. Please keep them safe, Father
State Department orders non-essential staff to leave Iraq amid escalating tensions with IranU.S. military put its forces in Iraq on high alert and the State Dept. orders all non-essential staff to leave the country right away. why are you using a picture of the iron dome defense technology? How will Fox News spin this one - they spent yesterday saying the story about sending troops wasn’t correct (because trump wants to send more than 120k?!) - let’s face it Trump is gearing for war to try to help his campaign - it’s sick. Trump created the tensions. Is there no end to this nightmare?
Spreading democracy and freedom and all kinds of good shit. Congress needs to reclaim its power, especially from the hands of these madmen. Congress - not the president - is supposed to make declarations of war. It hasn't done so since WWII, yet how many presidents have led us to war? They do it for political reasons. ENOUGH!
These assholes want to start a war. To save the criminal president in the White House. Why? Trump needs this war with Iran to cement his chances of being re-elected. But he is forgetting one vital point no one in America wants another war where US soldiers are made scapegoats. In the year of 2000 there were seven countries without a Rothschild owned or controlled Central Bank: Afghanistan. Iraq. Sudan. Libya. Cuba. North Korea. Iran. 2019: Cuba. North Korea. Iran.
And What tensions We don’t know what is happening - total news blackout
State Department orders non-emergency government employees out of IraqJUST IN: State Department orders non-emergency government employees out of Iraq. Ah Shit Here We Go Again Look like things wanna get shifty Why?
Let the games begin What's that realDonaldTrump Looks like Trump and Bolton are gonna get their war... disgusting Nothing like an all-out war to deflect from investigations. Are any of the trump kids volunteering to fight for the US? I doubt it. Only the rest of our kids & grandkids will fight & die for trump’s war
Lets be clear, the U.S. government is currently the the greatest threat to the people of this planet. Millions of civilians and military personnel will die for big oil and to distract from the christian fascist takeover of America. One thing you can always count on Republicans for, starting wars that don't need to be started.
Trump trying to look big. Clown. People when you going to take over and make a country again? You don't have one till you kick all those old useless people out. Only officials with children in uniform should be allowed to make decisions regarding war and peace. “Tensions flaring” is GOP speak for let’s bomb the Middle East
They have 16 min til this story breaks. Crazy
Pompeo shares details on 'escalating' Iran threats in Brussels: U.S. State DepartmentU.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo shared information on 'escalating'... Are we sure that the United States isn’t interested in a military conflict? They appear to be doing everything they can to paint Iran into a box where one is inevitable. The US is escalating this phony staged pack of lies with Iran Issuing the quality of the external systems of independence in the temporal factor where the aspects of the issuance of the trials and the formation of high systems of work periodic declaration and periodic update in the list of royal circulation
Well at least “Iran” rhymes with “Vietnam” in the protest folk song sense...won’t have to write anything new... There is no war in Iraq. I am sure that this escalation is for the sake of the deal of the century Israel Trump's collection of pet hawks are just itching to start something with Iran. Trump is trying to start a war for distraction purposes.
So the Trump-Bolton strategy is to forfeit an aircraft carrier and 5000 sailors to justify a war with Iran. Iran has more than enough advanced weaponry to do it. Unless of course our Supreme Leader Putin puts an end to Trump’s plan. What is the definition of 'non-emergency US government employees?' Is it anyone not carrying a weapon?
Call up the National Guard too and let them know to be on standby and that they could be sent to the region at any moment to pick a fight. realDonaldTrump and AmbJohnBolton are bullies and that is what American is today:A bully. Our coward president has been wanting war with Iran for such a long time and now he’ll probably get his chance. I saw a documentary on evangelicals and they actually want a Middle East war (for jesus return) so trump is pandering to his base.
U.S. orders ‘non-emergency’ government employees to leave IraqThe announcement affects both the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad and a consulate in the northern city of Erbil. The Trump Destabilization of the world continues... 'Since last week the Trump administration has been insisting that is has 'specific and credible' intelligence...' You mean like Colin Powell said about WMD? They are getting ready to send their military to go offer up some American Freedom. How noble. ‘Let’s go kill a few Arab kids’, an American favorite pass-time.
They've made up their mind, no need to get the public behind it, what can we do anyways, I'll say this though, not a lot of talk about the report these days, looks like it can be stalled and forgotten. Why are we here All the MORON wants is playing with the lives of the Americans soldiers who in the right mind would travel there anyways
Hmm wonder why 'And it's one, two, three, What are we fightin' for?' The only time USA will learn to respect smaller countries is when they will find march to engage them in real war not when they attack defenseless nations like iran if you want just attack Russia a nation which can reply back Tensions aren’t “flaring with Iran” we’re trying to incite a war.
Always due a partial job job never complete it The best thing for US to do is to pull all its forces out of Iraq.
U.S. Embassy orders staff to leave Iraq amid Iran tensionsU.S. military put its forces in Iraq on high alert and the State Dept. orders all non-essential staff to leave the country right away. Not a good sign. We’re going to war. Fuking John Bolton and Trump. I'm

Sounds like they are planning a rumble. Lets all hope there is no war, but if he insists let him be the first president to be voted out during wartime. President George Bush began the war President Barack Obama de-escalated the tension President Donald Trump is GEARING UP for WAR MiddleEast MiddleEastCrisis
Iran = Demon Are there many citizens heading to Iraq 'I WANT A WAR.........MY IDIOT BASE WANTS A WAR.................GIVE ME A WAR!!!!'

Seems like he’s spending more time not going places than he is actually going there. He’s like Mike Pence at a sporting event. something's bout to go down What fresh hell is this?
Three asshoes And so it begins It's obvious that Trump & his cronies are cultivating a pretext for unnecessary military action against Iran. For what? Because they can! That's the only reason. Iran has been compliant with the terms of the 2015 multi-national nuclear agreement according to oversight agencies.
Wag The Dog. Damn. It was number 1 on my list too!!! How does a weak president stay in power?....start a war.
