Fun fact: The amount of Iranians who found religion important in their lives climbed from 76% (2006) to 86% (2016). So no, it's certainly not losing traction, nor is it 'the source of all problems'. Depends, what is the goal? Bombing it down to the ground? Sure, possible without invading it. Regime...

Less justified than the Crusades?

At least the crusades had some religious justification

The idea of war with Iran is actually really frightening. we would be looking at tens of thousands of deaths, especially since everyone seems to underestimate the Iranians. The best way to act against Iran is through the U.N. and the United States needs to fully support the U.N.

There’s a thread where we can discuss the stupidity of invading Iran, this isn’t that thread There's several threads for Clinton too. But they are now locked bc it's sort of a grave digging thing.

The previous actions of a party are relevant to predicting future actions of that party. Then, when Bush started the Iraq war in 2003 under false pretenses (9/11, WMDs etc) that's a pretense for "that party". Iran, John Bolton, Trump and 120,000 troops on their way... Mmm... kay. Do you w...

The one he will try to use to attack Iran without congressional approval. It's the 2001 authorization to use force against any nation harboring or supporting terrorists linked to the 9/11 attacks. Wait, what? Were there Iranian terrorists during 9/11? The White House is claiming Iran supports Al Qu...

I merely felt it was an accurate sum up - some people don’t care about certain crimes so long as the “right” people are the ones getting the brunt of it. For trump, I’m pretty sure the “right” people are liberals and most foreigners. And it just so happened that the best summation of the idea that ...

You're right, is there a point here? Yes that you only like elections when your candidates win and if not it should be rigged so they do and if the other side manages to win the people should be punished. You want nothing more than a de facto dictatorship. with statements like that its quite scary ...

As of this post, nothing on google suggests a ruling has been made. So unless the media gives zero fucks, we haven’t got an official ruling yet. It was denying a stay. that nots something the media reports on often. Well shit... Yeah having election districts drawn fairly is a terrible thing right?...

I wonder how many of those troops would come home in body bags... The US supposedly lost around 4,500 for the entire Iraq project from 2003 to 2011. That's nothing, it was a cake walk compared to the amounts lost in Korea and Vietnam. I'd project that Iran would cause less than 10,000 maximum, but ...

There is supposedly a plan for the US to send 120,000 troops for war with Iran. It hasn't been green lit but if it is, this will be pretty wonderful in that it'll be on a grander scale than Iraq, longer supply lines, more territory to hold, more opportunities to use more payloads of weaponry.

Not really. Biden is likeable and Hillary was not. Biden doesn't stand for anything. He's going to run on 'everything was good before Trump and we'll go back to those days', but it wasn't good for all the people financially crushed by student loan debt, and it wasn't good for the people who relied ...

The point is to have good policies. If you put winning before good policies you do not deserve the former and will lose both.
