Re: US Iran tension 16 june 2019

His statements that he finds it hard to believe this was on purpose could be indicative of how serious this is.

He’s wanting to believe or open door for mistake because the consequences for it not being are severe.

Hit them hard or do t do anything. Half measures are over.

Re: US Iran tension 16 june 2019

Has anything been heard from the Iranian government?

IRG is a big player in Iran but I haven’t seen anything out of the President or Ayatollah.

I would think the Ayatollah and IRG are on the same page, it’s just curious.

Re: US Iran tension 16 june 2019

It’s to bad, but there will probably have to be a response. IRG should have kept their attacks insulated through proxies. Now though the question of Iran’s actions and intent will be crystal clear. If we respond to this we need to prosecute it till their military is castrated. It will break their e...

Re: US Iran tension 16 june 2019

Only post I’ve seen on this yet
If true if any or most of the missle attacks today are accurate it’s a high stakes game Iran is playing.

Re: US Iran tension 16 june 2019

Anyone see this as a slight change in the direction this might be going? https://m.dw.com/en/germany-says-there-is-strong-evidence-iran-behind-tanker-attacks/a-49248524 Germany has been eager for normalized trade with Iran. This seems to me to be a heavy sigh from Merkel that their hopes are being d...

Re: ELINT Twitter banned (Split from Iran/US Tensions #6/9/19)

I mean things like net neutrality or forcing ambiguous rules on everyone like equal time. Facebook twitter etc aren’t media/publishers but they retain the right to choose what is published on their sites. That makes them publishers and therefore open to civil liability. Currently there are no laws e...

Re: ELINT Twitter banned (Split from Iran/US Tensions #6/9/19)

Any similarities between that assumption and the nature of “news” dsemination in China? Regulation of news and social media will be the death of a free and honest attempt at news in the modern world. If regulation comes, in ten year we’ll be back to 3 or 4 news sources reporting “news” almost verbat...

Has the US ever attacked Iran before?
One failed attempt in 1979 that ended badly.
That wasn't an attack. It was a rescue attempt.
Your correct,
I was being tounge in cheek.
Just pointing to the dangers of any military venture.
