    Attorney General William Barr: “The fact of the matter is that, in waging a scorched earth, no-holds-barred war of 'Resistance' against this Administration,
    it is the Left that is engaged in the systematic shredding of norms and the undermining of the rule of law.”

    Think! What did this actually accomplish? Which capabilities has Iran lost? What actions does this force Iran to take?

    I doubt any of you had even heard of Soleimani before he was killed. Soleimani was a general from a professional military from an actual nation. He was not the leader of a hodgepodge terrorist organization. Everyone is replaceable in a professional military. EVERYONE. His replacement will take over his responsibilities and Iran's military will not have been compromised in the slightest.

    Soleimani was however popular in Iran. His death cannot go without a response. Iran MUST escalate. If the goal of the attack was to push back Iran because of their support for attacks on our embassies it's an utter failure. Instead of preventing future attacks we've ensured that they will happen while at the same time removing global support for our actions.

    That made me lol. Been listening to the Dems this morning and they have their panties in a wad because Trump didn't come to them to get authorization. Trump doesn't need authorization to take out someone already listed as a terrorist planning with a leader of Hezbollah another listed terrorist organization over future planned attacks on Americans and our interests. Besides the way that bunch are if he had told them, 15 minutes later it would have been leaked to the NYT.

    The way the dems word it is in fear what Iran might do next instead of looking at it as something that will help protect Americans and our friends in the region. Trump warned them if an American loses their life over these ongoing attacks in the past months there would be a price to pay. Last week it happened. On the second day of our embassy under siege, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei replied that Trump "cannot do a damn thing" as pro-Iran thugs firebombed the compound. Then Hezbollah fanatics threatened to kill every American inside. Well the Ayatollah and Hezbollah found out there was something Trump could do. Take out the heads of two snakes that our country identifies as terrorists behind the attacks and thwart those that were already in the works. When Trump draws a red line if you cross it there will be consequences.

    With a good economy and being the incumbent, guess what? The incumbent usually wins.

    US urges restraint from North Korea but says military is ready if needed - Pacific - Stripes

    SEOUL, South Korea — Defense Secretary Mark Esper urged restraint from North Korea after it threatened to unveil a “new strategic weapon,” but he said the U.S. military remains ready to fight if needed.

    Esper maintained hope for diplomacy despite the resumption of weapons testing and saber rattling by the North after talks collapsed following a failed February summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

    “We think the best path forward, with regard to North Korea, is a political agreement that denuclearizes the peninsula,” Esper said Thursday in an interview with Fox News. “We are going to remain on that path, and we would, obviously, urge Kim Jong Un and his leadership team to sit back down at the negotiation table to do that.”

    “But that said — we remain, from a military perspective, ready to fight tonight, as need be, but more importantly, or as importantly, I should say, enable our diplomats to get an agreement done,” he added. “So, we would urge restraint by Kim Jong Un.”

    IN GENERAL.—That the President is authorized to use all necessary and appropriate force against those nations, organizations, or persons he determines planned, authorized, committed,or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001,or harbored such organizations or persons, in order to prevent any future acts of international terrorism against the United States by such nations, organizations or persons

    We can agree or disagree with the wisdom of issuing the 2001 AUMF. But clearly Obama had the authority to pursue Bin Laden. By what authority did Trump attack Iran on the sovereign soil of a democratic Iraq?

    Trump's WH has more leaks than a submarine screen door.
