I see Boris has condemned Iran's retaliation, just like he did with the USA's initial attack.

Oh wait.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Well, not exactly. They had (correct) intelligence of the location of a wanted target that was behind multiple attacks on coalition forces, and they went for it.

It's not like they just looked him up on Wikipedia and sent a drone to his house.


They had the correct intelligence because he was invited there for peace talks. As where many of the the others killed.

Also he’s a very public figure that often tweeted where he was. Finding him was never hard

He also isn’t a ‘wanted target’.

They’ve also changed justification from ‘to prevent immediate attacks’ (legal if they could prove it which they couldn’t/haven’t) to ‘retaliation’ (illegal, at of war)

It doesn’t matter who he was - this was a bad illegal call. Johnson rushing to lick America’s taint in support should sicken any reasonable person

Trump's gunning for the Nobel. This is all for that, just the same as the North Korea crisis a couple of years ago that failed to produce it.

Funny way of going about it.

Engineer a crisis, to the very brink of war.
Walk back from the brink, talk peace.

He sounded like he'd been eating before it. He was out of breath.

Or maybe he was finished doing a massive dump which he grunted the whole way through.

Looking like the Ukrainian plane was accidentally shot down by Iranian anti air defences. I wonder how this will change things.

Canada joins the fray with their maple syrup guns and inability to say the word 'about'.

Just watched it now, he really did seem out of breath :lol:

Couldn't be though, we all know he's the healthiest and fittest and most handsome President in the history of the Republic.

It wasn’t snowing and the first snow of the year was 5 days before that. So weird.
