Quick Update From Cadet Bone Spurs

Cadet Bone Spurs Great Adventure

“Follow me!” — Cadet Bone Spurs
(H/T Scissorhead D-Cap)

Axios Alert email thingie tells us we dodged a bullet:

What he’s saying:

  • “As long as I’m president of the United States, Iran will never be allowed to have a nuclear weapon. Good morning. I’m pleased to inform you, the American people should be extremely grateful and happy. No Americans were harmed in last night’s attack by the Iranian regime.”
  • “Our great American forces are prepared for anything. Iran appears to be standing down.”
  • “No American or Iraqi lives were lost because of the precautions taken, the dispersal of forces, and an early warning system that worked very well.”

So we got that going for us until Il Douche decides to counter-punch, and he will.

    I wonder who was “in-charge” of this reversal? It’s kind of like Mommy sat him down and boxed his ears.
    Don’t get me wrong, this makes me very happy but I just can’t quite credit him with being the calmer head at work here. Who else has the moxie to get him to back off like that?
    We really came too close to war here, and I’ve been around since the Cuban Missile Crisis days so I’ve had a few chances to get close.
    glad to not be playing duck and cover anymore,

  2. Aaaannnnnddd it played out as I really REALLY hoped it would. [whew].

    We blowed up one of their guys they blowed up some of our stuff. They have a martyred national hero (who left behind a highly professional, highly connected military organization ^1) and showed the world (and the Iranian people) they were willing to go toe-to-toe with us, showed Israel and Saudi Arabia in particular that they can reach out and blow up their shit too touch them.

    Trump gets to strut and preen and pretend he’s a real man, and his Mar-a-lago gang gets to skim some profits from illegal insider information fortuitous, and perfectly coincidental futures trades.

    I just hope they’ve managed to shoot him up with tranqs and keep him the fuck away from the likes of Hannity who was saying we were going to blow up Iran’s refineries and anything else we could shoot at.

    (^1 Soulemani was indeed the founder and long time head of the Quds force, but despite the GOP fantasy that they’re just some ‘terrorist’ group, they’re not. They’re essentially Irans Special Forces, and as such have a modern, professional military command structure and leadership corps. This isn’t taking out the charismatic leader of a small terrorist group. This was like taking out the ranking officer of SOOCOM . This wouldn’t cripple US capabilities at all; Iran’s military is smaller, but they do have a deep bench of leadership. )

    Oddly, no one inside or outside the media is talking about the 50 billion barrels of oil reserves Iran discovered not too long ago…
