Trump Blames Obama for Iran

Post by Icarus »

Trump Blames Obama For Iranian Missile Attack

Unbelievable. And Facebook is going viral with dozens of memes blaming Obama.

I wonder what took Trump so long before blaming Obama?

Oh yeah, he had to find out from FOX News what he's supposed to say:

Lou Dobbs guest blames Obama for Iranian missile strike on American-occupied military bases in Iraq

There are nuances with the money Iran got. The $150 billion is a false claim Trump has repeatedly made; it refers to funds already belonging to Iran that were unfrozen as part of the nuclear deal signed in 2013, and it’s on the very high end of estimates. Others suggest it’s closer to $25 or $50 billion.

As for the claim about $1.8 billion, despite Trump’s repeated suggestions that it was some kind of gift to Iran, the money was owed to Iran, thanks to a years-old settlement in an international court. Iran had purchased military equipment from the United States, but that equipment was never delivered because of tensions between the two countries in the late 1970s. (The amount was also estimated to be closer to $1.7 billion.)

Part of that money was delivered to Iran in controversial circumstances, with the Obama administration using it as leverage for freed hostages. It was likened to ransom, but it was money that Iran was owed.

As for whether either of those sums were used specifically on the missiles Iran used Tuesday night, there’s no way to know specifically.
The biggest takeaway, though, is that Trump used a moment that could have been unifying when it comes to the United States’ posture toward Iran to suggest his predecessor had helped arm our enemies.


To make matters worse, Newt Gingrich falsely claimed that the 9/11 commission found Iran “directly helped the people who attacked us on 9/11 and killed 3,000 people”

New articles of impeachment should be drawn up regarding this murder, that is if Pelosi & Co. have the guts to do so. I don't think it would be hard to show Trump ordered the killing of a leader outside of his power to do so under the constitution. We aren't officially at war with Iran and that is a predicate for the type of action Trump just took.

The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”"

Unemployment figures under Obama were fudged
Obama was a secret Moslem
Obama was not born in the US
Obama is really a racist.

I don't get it. That you can make anyone look goofy by taking a picture at shutter speeds of 1/1000 of a second and picking the worst one?

Theres also a whole set of world leaders heil hitlering because as they wave the picture captures only the still frame of an extended arm.

On the otherhand you can't fake obamas smile. that's genuine.

Its funny. I post a picture relevent to the thread with overt ovetures of Obamas not subtle racism.

And in response you all post goofy pictures. I suppose i shouldn't have expected more. But im still disappointed somehow.

Really? I didn't see any pictures of Obama lynching white people. That's what racism is, right?

So you're trying to say that Obama's purported racism is relevant to a thread about Trump erroneously blaming Obama for something Trump did, but my picture of Trump making his regular idiot face is not relevant to a thread where essentially Trump being his ____ moron self is the subject?

You have a strange way of making associations or assessing relevance.

Also, I love that you post a picture of Obama appearing to look at a woman's ass, as though you disapprove.

Trump raping women, however... I sure there's a reasonable explanation, right?

To be fair, Obama does have a habit of being pictured with racists.

If racism bothers you so much, why do you defend Trump?

Or is racism only bad if a black guy does it?

The Trump Supporter's Song

I'm a hypocrite and I'm OK
I sleep all night, I whine all day

He's a hypocrite and he's OK
He sleeps all night and whines all day

Obama lied, he looked at ass
Drone strikes were a thing
All that is real bad for him
But Trump makes me want to sing

I'm a hypocrite and I'm OK
I sleep all night, I whine all day

Is that the curse?

It seems to me the curse of Trump looking in the mirror is that mirrors don't lie. If only Trump could secure a magic mirror to be another of his lying sycophants.
