Guy I worked for in the early 90s had some shirts made up during the Gulf War. Can't remember the logo, but it said something along the lines of "bomb his ass and take his gas"

I got a chuckle from that

AP STORY : Once again, Iraq caught up in tensions between US and Iran

>>> https://apnews.com/62be4d0567144d5eb7ed194ccb87b7aa

" BAGHDAD (AP) — When U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo sat down with Iraqi officials in Baghdad last week as tensions mounted between America and Iran, he delivered a nuanced message: If you’re not going to stand with us, stand aside."

Overnight Defense: Iran worries dominate foreign policy talk | Pentagon reportedly to send WH plans for 10K troops in Mideast | Democrats warn Trump may push through Saudi arms sale | Lawmakers blast new Pentagon policy on sharing info

===============================================
helpful comment from a Democrat Frown
""
One Democratic lawmaker floated a theory to The Hill's Scott Wong that combines Iran with other buzzword of the day: impeachment.

Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) said Wednesday that President Trump could launch a war with Iran for a purely political reason: to deter Democrats from impeaching him.

"I believe that the president of the United States is on the cusp of taking us to war without the consent of Congress because he fears impeachment. And we all know that if we are at war, the American people would not agree that you should be impeaching a president," Wilson said in an interview in her Capitol Hill office.
""
===============================================
back to the real world:
The Iraq problem is serious. We are dealing with an absolute nutcase - Iatolla cock-a-mamy.

This religious zealot is as unpredictable as a lab rat. The President has his hands full with this - and China - and North Korea.

Thanks Democrats for ALL your help. Roll Eyes

Tankers targeted near Strait of Hormuz amid Iran-US tensions
By JON GAMBRELL

AP > https://apnews.com/d67714ab8ac344a3b3af19cca1c20192


"DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Two oil tankers near the strategic Strait of Hormuz were reportedly attacked on Thursday, an assault that left one ablaze and adrift as sailors were evacuated from both vessels and the U.S. Navy rushed to assist amid heightened tensions between Washington and Tehran.

In Iran, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warned that while Tehran doesn’t seek nuclear weapons, “America could not do anything” to stop Iran if it did.

The comments came during a one-on-one meeting capping Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s high-stakes visit in Tehran that sought to ease Iran-U.S. tensions, suggested the efforts had failed."

Iran needs a good bitch slap like back in the 80s when we sunk some of their ships.

This will get a lot harder once they get nukes.

"“Iran did do it,” he said of the attack, in remarks Friday morning to “Fox & Friends.”

Trump also warned Iran not to close off the strait, saying if it does so, it won’t be shut for long.

Iran announces it will exceed uranium stockpile restraints of nuclear deal
BY OWEN DAUGHERTY - 06/17/19 07:30 AM EDT

The Hill > https://thehill.com/policy/int...ed-uranium-stockpile

"Iran announced on Monday that it will break the limit for its uranium stockpile agreed to in the Obama-era nuclear deal within the next 10 days.

Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization spokesman, Behrouz Kamalvandi, said on state television that the country has “quadrupled the rate of enrichment and even increased it more recently,” which will push Tehran’s stockpile past the 300 kg limit set in the deal, according to Reuters."
............
"The announcement comes as tensions between the U.S. and Iran grow after the Trump administration accused Tehran of attacking two oil tankers Gulf of Oman, though Iran has denied any involvement.

Speculation of the U.S. taking military action against Iran has increased since the attack on the oil tankers, with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo saying he wanted to avoid war but is willing to take every action necessary, to ensure the safe passage of the ships through the Middle East trade routes.

"The United States is considering a full range of options,” Pompeo said in an interview on CBS News Sunday. “We are confident that we can take a set of actions that can restore deterrence which is our mission set.”

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) said on Sunday that the attacks "warrant a retaliatory military strike."

Iran shoots down US drone
BY KYLE BALLUCK - 06/20/19 06:02 AM EDT

The Hill> https://thehill.com/policy/def...shoots-down-us-drone

"Iran’s Revolutionary Guard said that it shot down a U.S. military drone early Thursday, heightening already strained tensions between Washington and Tehran.

The Guard said it shot down the drone over Hormozgan Province in southern Iran, Tehran's state news agency, IRNA, reported.

Two U.S. officials, however, told The Associated Press that the incident happened in international airspace over the Strait of Hormuz."
........
""Shooting down of the US spy drone has a clear message and it is the fact that the defenders of this country are ready to give decisive response to any aggression," Major-General Hossein Salami, who commands the Guard, said, according to the state news agency.

He said that Iran’s "enemies" have "no choice" but to respect the nation’s territorial integrity and interests."....
==============================================
If the drone was shot down over international waters, we should sling a little mustard on that Salami. Big Grin

Iran calls new US sanctions ‘outrageous and idiotic’
By NASSER KARIMI
25 minutes ago

AP > https://apnews.com/67299afa909d44a7ad83ae5690c7dde2

"TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran on Tuesday sharply criticized new U.S. sanctions targeting the Islamic Republic’s supreme leader and other top officials, saying the measures spell the “permanent closure” for diplomacy between the two nations. Iran’s president described the White House as “afflicted by mental retardation.”

President Hassan Rouhani went on to call the sanctions against Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei “outrageous and idiotic,” especially as the 80-year-old Shiite cleric has no plans to ever travel to the United States.

From Israel, Trump’s national security adviser John Bolton said talks with the U.S. were still possible and that the U.S. is leaving an “open door” for Iran to walk through.".........

......."Meanwhile, U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton said Trump was open to real negotiations to eliminate Iran’s nuclear weapons program and “all that Iran needs to do is walk through that open door.”

Bolton was meeting with his Russian and Israel counterparts in a first-of-its-kind trilateral security summit in Jerusalem that was focused on Iranian involvement in conflicts across the region, particularly in neighboring Syria.

“As we speak, American diplomatic representatives are surging across the Middle East, seeking a path to peace. In response, Iran’s silence has been deafening,” he said. “There is simply no evidence that Iran has made the strategic decision to renounce nuclear weapons and open realistic discussions to demonstrate that decision.”

But only hours later, Bolton told a news conference that “all options remain on the table” if Iran goes over the limit for its low-enriched uranium stockpile as planned by Thursday.

“It would not be in their interest to do it but they have done a lot of things recently that are not in their interest,” Bolton said."

============================================
I think the old coot Ayatollah A.K. is driving his country to the edge of oblivion simply to guarantee his own place in history as a foremost martyr for Islam and thereby guarantee his own eternal paradise, complete with all the virgins, etc.

Is there any other way to explain him?

....Iran’s very ignorant and insulting statement, put out today, only shows that they do not understand reality. Any attack by Iran on anything American will be met with great and overwhelming force. In some areas, overwhelming will mean obliteration. No more John Kerry & Obama!

Nuclear monitor confirms Iran exceeds uranium stockpile limit
BY REBECCA KHEEL - 07/01/19 10:26 AM EDT

The Hill > https://thehill.com/policy/def...l&utm_campaign=23308
==========================================
"The international organization that monitors Iran’s compliance with the nuclear deal confirmed Monday that Tehran has exceeded the amount of low-enriched uranium it is allowed to stockpile.

“In response to media inquiries, we can confirm that IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano today informed the Board of Governors that the Agency verified on 1 July that Iran’s total enriched uranium stockpile exceeded 300kg of UF6 enriched up to 3.67% U-235 (or the equivalent in different chemical forms),” the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said in a statement.

The IAEA’s confirmation comes after Iranian state media reported that Iran had breached the 300 kilogram limit.".............
................." more
===================Under the 2015 nuclear deal — negotiated by the Obama administration and co-signed by the United Kingdom, Germany, France, China and Russia — Iran can stockpile no more than 300 kilograms of low-enriched uranium.

Tehran announced in mid-June it would soon exceed that limit, upping pressure on Europe to deliver benefits from the deal to offset U.S. sanctions.

The Trump administration withdrew the United States from the accord in May 2018, reimposing harsh sanctions on Iran.

The European signatories of the deal have been working to set up a mechanism for European businesses to continue trading with Iran without facing U.S. sanctions, but Iran has said Europe’s efforts are insufficient.

Last-minute talks between Europe and Iran last week failed to convince Tehran to stay within the limits of the deal.

For now, Iran is still only enriching to the 3.67 percent limit set by the deal — enough for power plants but far from weapons-grade.

But Iran has set another deadline for Europe to deliver benefits, after which it will increase its enrichment levels. That deadline is Sunday.".........more

==========================
methinks Ayatollah A.K.wants to go out in a blaze of glory; a one way ticket to see Muhammad.
