Trump has no skills for diplomacy or negotiations. He's a bully.

1. Trump got out of the Iran nuclear agreement.
2. Imposed crippling sanctions on Iran.
3. Declared the Iran military as "Terrorists".
4. Kills their top General
5. Sends thousands of more troops to the area.
6. US airports and Federal buildings are now on Heightened Alert.
7. Esmail Ghanni, the General who just replaced Soleimani, vows revenge on the US.

Yeah, if this keeps up Iranians will be chanting "Death to America".

Or attacking oil tankers in the gulf.

Maybe even bombing Saudi Arabian oil facilities.

Launching attacks on Americans in the region.

Shooting down one of our drones.

Yeah, I'd sure hate to see THAT stuff happen.

Suddenly the right thinks Gabbard may be just another liberal out to destroy our freedom.

Are you mocking and minimizing the danger our troops will be facing over there?

Nope.

Just pointing out that all that stuff was happening BEFORE we bombed their number one terrorist.

And, that dead terrorist may have been the guy directing most or all of that stuff.

So, it's not like things were all hunky-dory before...

Funny, Trump didn't seem to give a rat's ass that they shot down our drone.

Wrong.

He almost bombed em, but held off at the last minute.

Allegedly...
Yeah, but that was AFTER some folks called him a pussy ;)

Iran shoots down US drone, officials say; Trump says it could have been a mistake by somebody 'loose and stupid'
