Channeling Winston.

Some attribute to Churchill the observation that "Americans can always be trusted to do the right thing, once all other possibilities have been exhausted." The following choice comment is along those lines:
[From Einstein101 comment:] Yeah, trump wants to have all the options, he will not start a war with Iran. But Iran needs to be aware that this option is on the table.
Yeah every option is always on the Washingtonians table save for having a workable and viable approach to foreign policy and a good strategy and good plan. Every option is always on the Washingtonians table except for a workable peaceful solution since they're basically brainless, clueless, hopeless, and hapless, inept & incompetent idiots. . . .[1]

LOL to the UN report. No shit, Sherlock. Did they think the Yemenis had their own Tony Stark to build those rockets in caves?

The global establishment is tottering under it's own weight. I fear what it's death throes will being to us all.

During the Depression some 60% of the population lived on farms. Guessing at that number but it was a high one. It was also a basically sound country with just the socialist/communist infestation to deal with. FDR's noble plans for us deepened the depression from which we were finally delivered by war and the economic devastation of England, Europe, and the Soviet Union.

Now we have an economy that mostly resembles gangrene and a political class, academy, and press whose malevolence it is hard to fathom. Our just-in-time economy requires all parts to work without a hitch and our urban centers, home to our indolent and hostile minorities and our deranged leftist cancer, are about three days of truck deliveries from dependence on their stash of peanut butter and gluten-free Icelandic noodles. That particular segment harbors visions of a normie-free world after George and the Green agenda fanatics are done with us but the real winnowing is going to take place within 100 miles of Manhattan, Chicago, and Minneapolis. We've already seen that one day's hiccup in the EBT card network generates a lot of heat. I'm thinking two words about that -- tinder and spark.
