There. I told you Trump and the Saudis would figure out the right response to Iran's attacks on the Saudis oil infrastructure.

The answer is total confusion.

Now the mullahs have no idea what's going to happen.

wsj.com/articles/u-s-tells-sau

"U.S. officials shared with Saudi Arabia the intelligence reports and their assessment that Iran launched more than 20 drones and at least a dozen ballistic missiles at the Saudi oil facilities on Saturday, the people familiar said.

"But Saudi officials said the U.S. didn’t provide enough proof to conclude that the attack was launched from Iran, indicating the U.S. information wasn’t definitive."

So:

We have people feeding the press disinformation.

We have Trump sending totally unclear messages.

And we have the Saudis saying that they're not sure what happened.

IRAN AND THE DEMOCRATS WANT A WAR.

The mullahs want a war, because the knee-jerk reaction of Iranians will be to unite behind the mullahs.

That's what happened in Lebanon in 2006.

Hezbollah's enemies fell deeply in love with Hezbollah.

The Democrats want a war so that they can blame Trump.

Here's rabidly pacifist Tulsi Gabbard demanding a war.

Her entire platform is antiwar, but she's criticizing Trump for not launching a unilateral retaliation.

And the press is blaming Trump for Iran's acts of war.

"Despite Iran's hostility, critics argue that Iran’s latest alleged misbehavior is partly Trump’s fault because he quit the Iran nuclear deal and re-imposed economic sanctions on Tehran."

politico.com/story/2019/09/16/

Since our enemies foreign and domestic want a war with Iran, Trump and the Saudis won't give them one.

The SILENT war will continue.

SUDAN IS THE MODEL.

The Sudanese rose up, and when outside forces interfered, all sides asked Trump for help.

He sent envoy Donald Booth, and the result is a transition government in with all sides share power.

I knew that Trump and the Saudis would outwit our enemies the Iranian mullahs, the Democrats, and the media.

THEY want war.

But they won't get it.

Sorry, Tulsi. Better luck next time.

Bitch.

END.

@ThomasWic

Thank you, Thomas. I was torn, I know Trump doesn't want war anywhere. Your take makes sense and creates very nervous Mullahs a win-win!

@ThomasWic

I think Tulsi makes me the angriest out of all the Democrats. And it's not even anything she did specifically, because Kamala Harris is easily more of a shitbag.

It's just because she's deified by "Moderates" and "reasonable Democrats" and "Tim Pool" as the shining beacon of hope for the future of the Democrat party.

If Tulsi is the hero of sanity that will save the Democrats, then scrap this party of jackasses once and for all.

@Kambeii @ThomasWic my issue with her is her claim that she is a co6mat vet and knows the horrors of war such that she would make a good leader. Even if true, it breaks down to a class argument.

@Tboyd @ThomasWic

Even with that in mind, just on her own, she's not as bad as the other scum on offer.

But desperate fools like those I've mentioned have taken "not as bad" to mean "divine savior".

@Tboyd @Kambeii @ThomasWic
I suspect that Tulsi didn't SEE actual WAR! She was most likely someplace Far from actual Combat with her pretty little face shielded from the true Horrors of War! She's a complete Dumbass...........and obviously the token "moderate" (I say This Very Lightly) for the Left!

@redwhitebluedude @drawandstrike

Also, her Combat Medic Badge (CMB) is a participation award given to any medical personnel either in a combat zone or treating those in a combat zone.

She was a headquarters clerk in a medical company. Her bosses dealt with NON-COMBAT medical issues.

The Internet is full of lies about how she "went outside the wire" on combat patrols.

She's absolutely repulsive.

@ThomasWic @drawandstrike
Non-combat medical issues and away from combat zones? Very telling how much they did not trust her.

Really have to dig to find such info, but eventually it is going to come out.

@ThomasWic The more I hear her talk, I can only focus on one thing....how she pitches her voice lower than her natural octave. It's like that Elizabeth Holmes woman who is facing fraud charges. Both women are complete sociopaths.

@carolinacally @ThomasWic Yep. It's called vocal fry and is REALLY bad for the throat and vocal chords and all the popular young "taste makers" do it to imitate the Kardashians. Stupid.

@ThomasWic

The disinformation ops that Trump uses against the left, deepstate, media et al is beautiful to behold. Even more so right now with what’s going on with us and the Saudis. No one outside of Trump/his people and Bin Salman/his people have a clue what is going on, the are frozen in place and flat footed. They just made it easier for Trump to push UN to isolate Iran further and not much ground any of them can use to decline. If Trump/Salman go that route that is. Thankyou Mr. Wictor

@ThomasWic

I was at a big Halloween party at my sister's house in 2009. All the kids were trying to scare each other.

My niece Mel declares to all that she can't be scared.

I smile, "I can scare you."
Mel, in my face, "Go ahead. Try."

"Not now. Before the night's over. I will scare you worse than you've ever been scared in your life."

And I did. By doing nothing.

"Uncle Steve, you have to go let Mel off the hook, she's crying, totally petrified!"

Imagination is such a powerful thing.

@ThomasWic

I really believe POTUS does NOT want any conflict.

BUT

I have blocked a few people claiming Saudi Arabia conducted a false flag op and that Trump is going to start a war.

There may come a time when he MUST act - 9/11 stuff or Pearl Harbor etc...

The Mullah’s are going too far. We will know when it becomes necessary

Everyone but the FRENCH will be clamoring for it!

@ThomasWic

For those that don't know it is not the Iranians we (& the Saudis) are up against. It's the C_A. They own Iran. It's one of the last DS strongholds.

@ThomasWic

You're being kind calling Her a Bee-Itch, She's a C U Next Tuesday...

@ThomasWic Keep in mind who is helping to advise the Iranian mullahs.

@ThomasWic - Another great analysis. You are THE MAN with respect to all things Middle East!

@ThomasWic When I did a month of security detail for Ambassador Booth in Sudan I had a chance to talk to some of the Sudanese and they were so full of Hope about Solutions coming one day, and it looks as if their Solutions just might be coming.

@ThomasWic
so we are suppose to kiss their ads and they will play nice...bull💩😝

@ThomasWic
She's just mad because she can't find enough pancake makeup to cover those acne scars.

@ThomasWic
She is the sneakiest one of the bunch. And the most dangerous because Gabbard never addresses the truth and how she honestly believes. Putting honestly and Gabbard in the same sentence is laughable.

@ThomasWic Did Tulsi not notice those refineries were in S.A. not Texas.

@ThomasWic

I wonder if this was Kerry’s strategy he fed to Iran when he did his “clandestine” meetings with them

@selah18

The Taliban and the mullahs got the same bad advice:

Carry out acts of war. That will make Trump cave.

From what I'm reading, the Taliban are being absolutely slaughtered.

And the only only thing that came from the Iranian strikes on Saudi Arabia was a demonstration to the world that the mullahs are willing to disrupt global energy supplies.

It won't end well for them.

@ThomasWic @selah18
'Carry out acts of war. That will make Trump cave.' That sounds about right for half-wit Kerry.

@Baline @ThomasWic

One of my FAVORITE movies is “Patton.”
Pres Trump is fighting a World War like Patton did, and is winning - too bad the other side doesn’t know it yet.

@marciamillsART That may be true, but I don't think they will like the big finale Trump has planned.😆
@selah18 @ThomasWic

@selah18 I really enjoyed "Patton" too. George C. Scott portrayed a real alpha male, which is aces in my book. As for the other side not knowing, Good! They deserve everything coming to them. 😀
@ThomasWic

@Baline @selah18 @ThomasWic

I’ve been reading lots of glowing statements on SQV about General Patton recently. He definitely was a great militarist.

But George S. Patton was also a blatant antisemite. I’ve read several papers on this, and was shocked and very disappointed

I would LOVE to be wrong here. If anyone here can counter his antisemitism legacy, please do!

Here’s one article about it:

jewishpress.com/indepth/gen-pa

@rarity @Baline @ThomasWic

This is horrible if true. The redeeming thing about Patton was that he led us to victory during WW 2 and his troops liberated my father. For that, I’m grateful.

@selah18 @rarity @Baline @ThomasWic

Patton was far from anomalous.

Racism/antisemitism, were commonplace - acceptable even - in Patton's lifetime. The world was chock full of people openly bigoted toward people they had never even met or interacted with personally.

The Holocaust brought the world face to face with the horrific reality of hateful, bigoted sentiments when carried to murderous extremes.

It was the boomers who would later focus on the roots and seeds, and not just its fruits.

@selah18 @rarity @Baline @ThomasWic

It's kind of like you could imagine Patton saying, "Yeah, I hated 'em. Still do! That doesn't mean I wanted 'em gassed!"

Yes, it does. Wittingly or otherwise.

Hatred is a murder seed. If don't want it, don't plant it.

@selah18 @rarity @Baline @ThomasWic

One last thought:

I believe that the movie Patton was intended as a leftwing smear-job, one designed to paint Patton in a bad light, but which backfired spectacularly.

Same as the scene in Predator where everyone is spraying thousands of bullets into the jungle, destroying everything and killing nothing. The director said (my paraphrase) that he fully intended it as an anti-gun scene (argument by ridicule), which also backfired.

@rarity @Baline @selah18

Patton was much more than a Jew-hater.

He was a full-blown lunatic. This isn't a secret.

He wanted to raise an army of Nazis and immediately start World War III against the Soviets.

He wasn't a saint; he was an incredibly brilliant general and a massively flawed human.

The Jewish Press is leaving out the part where Patton DEFEATED the Nazis and stopped the genocide of the Jews.

THAT is what matters.

@ThomasWic @rarity @Baline @selah18
What mattered is correct.
The deconstruction is not interested in the result; just victimhood.. hurt feelings trump saving millions

@masterblaster @rarity @Baline @selah18

It's pathetic, actually.

Think about it THIS way:

Patton hated Jews BUT SAVED THEM ANYWAY.

The Kurds hate the Yazidis but saved them from the Islamic State anyway. Like Patton, the Kurds used brilliant military strategy to do it.

To this day, Iraqi Kurdistan is paying huge amounts to support Yazidi refugees.

Yet Kurds hate Yazidis.

Doing the right thing despite your own personal feelings is what we call "heroism."
