  8. Re: US House Speaker Announces Formal Impeachment Inquiry

    The Senate would determine the credibility of any witnesses called and any documents submitted as testimony. The documents Parnas provided connect a few dots and give context to facts that have...
  9. Re: Iraqi protesters storm U.S. embassy in Baghdad

    I pointed out the fact that the regime itself has proclaimed the spread of Islamic revolution, destabilized the region, and openly called for the overthrow neighboring governments as a Shia Islamist...
  10. Re: Iraqi protesters storm U.S. embassy in Baghdad

    I have provided many sources, not just “a CIA report from 1980,” nor are your aspersions material to its credibility. As I said many times, your insistence that it cannot be proven whether or not...

    Ah. Well, yikes. Assuming someone (the US) bombs said facilities until she runs out of materials to build new ones and moves underground.... what then? I’m genuinely asking.

  12. Re: Iraqi protesters storm U.S. embassy in Baghdad

    Care to elaborate?

    The JCPOA was a “least bad option” as a short term deterrent. If I knew the solution to Islamic terrorism, I wouldn’t be writing about it for free on the internet.
  13. Re: Iraqi protesters storm U.S. embassy in Baghdad

    No one in this thread is calling for war with Iran. I have methodically and repeatedly laid out the full modern history of the region and the course of events related to Tehran’s deliberate and...
  14. Re: Iraqi protesters storm U.S. embassy in Baghdad

    The continued apologist victimhood narrative that attempts to make post hoc connections in order to reassign the agency of Tehran’s regime to her enemies is irrelevant whataboutism. It was debunked...
  15. Re: Iraqi protesters storm U.S. embassy in Baghdad

    Sanctions were a response to Tehran’s attack on our embassy there. Until that point, as I said, the US was not only not antagonizing Tehran, but helped Khomeini transition into power under the...
  16. Re: Iraqi protesters storm U.S. embassy in Baghdad

    Facts that contradict your chosen narrative are not an absurdity. The “red line” and “antagonism” sophistry is just that.


    Responding to Tehran’s attacks and deliberate destabilization of the...
  17. Re: Iraqi protesters storm U.S. embassy in Baghdad

    The above narrative focuses on moralistic sophistry featuring themes of crime and punishment. This is the only framing in which whataboutist deflections have any relevance (other countries do bad...
  18. Re: Iraqi protesters storm U.S. embassy in Baghdad

    I don’t know what the point is of copy pasting 2/3 of the quote. If you were going to clip the part about Tehran inducing the further spread of Salafism by introducing and spreading her own Shia...
  19. Re: US House Speaker Announces Formal Impeachment Inquiry

    Looks like Republicans are going to need a bigger rug to sweep all this under when they vote to acquit. McConnell had better get his sham trial over with, and fast.
  20. Re: Iraqi protesters storm U.S. embassy in Baghdad

    Thank you for the recommendation.


    In terms of religious history, perhaps. In terms of the history of the region, how Tehran got herself into the current situation, and the spread of militant...
  21. Re: Iraqi protesters storm U.S. embassy in Baghdad

    When your back’s against the wall, issue thinly veiled threats to the few people left in your corner.....? It’s a bold strategy, Cotton. Let’s see if it pays off for them.
  22. Re: Iraqi protesters storm U.S. embassy in Baghdad

    You accuse others of misrepresentation while misrepresenting what I’ve said as a segue to some kind of “not all Muslims” tangent. If you want to debate the facts, feel free.
  23. Re: Iraqi protesters storm U.S. embassy in Baghdad

    I doubt the Ayatollah would appreciate such a muted characterization of his piety and zeal for holy war so that all nations might cry out to Allah.

    The report and details of ongoing repression of...
  24. Re: Iraqi protesters storm U.S. embassy in Baghdad

    Repetition of political narratives to air personal grievances against western powers is not an argument against the fact the Iranian regime is founded on global Islamic revolution, independently of...
  25. Re: Iraqi protesters storm U.S. embassy in Baghdad

    If I may do a little nitpicking of my own:

    British foreign policy was centered on old fashioned cultural domination and direct resource extraction. From a purely cynical standpoint, the US just...
  26. Re: Iraqi protesters storm U.S. embassy in Baghdad

    Tehran’s mission to spread Islamic revolution is integral to the existence of the regime itself, regardless of whether one wants to thread the needle between using religious warfare themes for...

    It doesn’t really matter if the Iran apologist brigade wants to debate whether an internationally recognized terrorist organization like Hezbollah “counts” as a terrorist organization. Tehran is...
  28. Re: Iraqi protesters storm U.S. embassy in Baghdad

    Yeah, I read that article from the “promiscuous, pacifist” media. That’s exactly the point. Trump portrays himself as a master of all things, but couldn’t bother to have his own administration craft...

    A user described determinants for Trump support as xenophobic.
