I wish people would stop trying to sanitise the Solemeini incident by saying he was ‘taken out’. It wasn’t a high-school date, it was an assassination, murder in cold blood - why not call it what it was?

You can't stop the euphemism, John. Despite all I've said, even robo is still saying "taken out." When I first met the adorable Mrs Steve, she accepted my proposal after having been taken out by me many times over a couple of years, OK, mostly to an East End pub that had been a frequent resort of the Krays (though also to the Bishop Bonner in Bethnal Green, to see Chas and Dave on many a Thursday before they got famous), but at least she can't deny that she'd been taken out...

I am taken 'aback' by the many words used to critique my words but none to remark on my assertions. I am not trying to euphemize that Solemeini was euthanized.

He was murdered. In the UK, that's what we call deliberately killing people outside the law, as happened here. It isn't hard. I've heard self-defence used as an excuse. Well, when you kill a bloke going to an airport, minding his own business, ten thousand miles away from your country but within his own territory (yes, I know it was his friendly neighbour), then self-defence sounds a bit thin. See my post about all those others who, by your standard, might justifiably have been "taken out..."

Meanwhile back in the world dealing with facts as well as the re-interpretation of them, there seems to be photographs of the two anti-aircraft missiles used by Iran to dispatch Ukrainian Flight PS752 down in flames.

Canadian PM Trudeau has just ventured forth the opinion that the airliner passengers would still be alive had all this not gone down, so he is going back along the chain of events to finesse the allocation of responsibility. I alluded to this back along the chain of messages in this thread. Not a surprise.

I just found a mouse 'murdered' in a trap in my foyer. Not sure to which court I have to plead my case... It probably was not responsible for as many allied deaths as Solemieni.

There would seem to be protests against the ayotollahs in Iran. Could exterminating the terrorist possibly lead to regime change?
Whatever the rights and wrongs of the drone strike it was relatively clean and surgical.
According to outside monitoring groups, by the end of his second term, President Obama had authorized 528 strikes with a death toll reaching somewhere between 380 and 801 civilians in Libya, Pakistan, Somalia, and Yemen alone. And that’s believed to be a conservative estimate.

Modern weaponry and warfare would seem to have outpaced the Geneva Convention on Warfare.
Whether the act was right or wrong the world is a better lave without the man

Meanwhile back in the New World THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES has accused me of being a traitor. In fact all regesitered Democrats are being called traitors. Pelosi and Schumer are pictured in Irainian garb labeled terrorist sympathizers by the Press secretry who no longer gives press conferences.

Part of this is reminds me how Jews and Communists were portrayed in 1932 Germany. Likewise they thought Adolf was kidding at first

Just saw it last night. Agree fully with Steve. Superbly executed, paced, cinematography, great score by Thomas Newman, not a criticism but it went easy on some of the mass horrors of the war. One of the main characters has survived The Somme, so it's transmitted in his behavior and actions. The real-time nature of this movie is rarely seen and takes an incredible amount of prep and coordination.

As a relatively ignorant Yank brought up by veterans of WWII I took the fact that there had been a WWI to be that it must have been a sort of 'warmup'. Only a few years ago the advent of a six part documentary series called "The Great War and the Shaping of the Twentieth Century" which set me right and was hugely informative.


Back to Iran. For those of us on the West side of the pond, Fresh Air is going to air an interview with someeone behind the fresh release of Iranian internal documents which inform the part Solemeini played in exercising Iranian policy in Iraq. It is apparently a shared story between an online site called The Intercept and The New York Times. I just heard this on the way over to the coffee shop. I'll be looking a the publications shortly, at least the NYT.

The General and Supream leader were best buds. If policy and their relationship went hand in glove would be good to know. So far Iran's response without the General has been quite measured and dispositive.

Really, Mossy?

Are you going for a statement (yet again) of how you dislike the Current Occupant, or are you really going to assert, like, in real world that a religious dictator who has no problem ordering the deaths of essentially unlimited numbers of people (not just ordering, they really die) is not nearly as bad?

'Cause that's going for broke. And makes you no less a 'winger' than the very sort of people you oppose.

It makes you a 'very stable' kneejerker, (assuming you really are going there?)

Also, forgive me but I don't know which side of the pond you're on, and maybe my lack of knowledge of where you're coming from is marring my judgment of where you wish to go.

Yeah I don't like titles either. Forget Ayatollah, Fuerher, President, Commander AND Chief. How about Supreme Shitbag, YOUR HEINOUS, Mr. or Ms Tie breaker.

Accidents happen. Iran has picked some scapegoats to punish already. I'm more pissed off about the deliberateness of flight 007 being shot down near Kamchatka with impunity.

Mossback is about polemics. At least thats where he parked his posting flag this week.

I would say he was assassinated (killed unlawfully for holding a particular and influential position, not for, say, his money) rather then murdered (by, in my example, mugger or impatient heir).

But I also don't equate injured and wounded, which many do.

Don't trust dictionary definitions (literally? Really?)...

Hopefully, a mod will see this post, find out what provoked it and take action.

President Donald Trump offered chilling details to GOP donors about the airstrike assassination of Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani on Jan. 2 — and a new reason for the hit: He was saying “bad things” about America.

“He was saying bad things about our country, like ‘we’re going to attack, we’re going to kill your people. “How much of this shit do we have to listen to?" Trump said.

The president didn’t mention any “imminent attack” planned by the military commander.


Obviously a perfect reason for multiple murders by TCO.

YOU TALKIN TA ME ????? BLAM!



PS: Murder's the same either side of the pond, Rob.

Mossback, those kind of defenses never work for spousal murder cases. Every country should issue a restraining order against Trump.
It won't prevent the crime but aids prosecution.
