    What was Trump's criminal action? Did he order the murder American citizens? You realize there is NO statute of limitations on murder.

    Once more you (like the Trump administration) refuse to answer the question.

    Does Trump need to notify Congress before killing the Supreme Leader of Iran?

    Another dodge.

    Do you believe that there is actual reason to believe that soleimani was targetting 4 US embassies as Trump claimed?

    What happens to your confidence if the Senate agrees to conduct vote anonymously?

    For me, even before I read the funeral notice in the Egyptian paper, the picture of the helicopter at Abbottabad was clearly staged. There is no such helicopter in US or other inventory. The picture showed some sort of one-off helicopter, brought in to the stage to fool those unfamiliar with helicopters.

    Another dodge. I asked first.
    Do you not believe Soleimani was an ongoing threat and would continue his attacks and continue killing our forces and innocent civilians in his terrorist attacks?

    Once more you dodge and present apples oranges. Try again.

    Do you not believe Soleimani was an ongoing threat and would continue his attacks and continue killing our forces and innocent civilians in his terrorist attacks?

    Many might make a convincing argument that Bibi is an ongoing threat to this country.

    Should he be taken out as well? Such an argument might be made about Erdogan. Should he be removed too?

    Don't try to take trumpers own logic to it's conclusion. Trumpers don't view the world logically. Everything is one argument at a time and in a vacuum. Anything to avoid criticizing their fuhrer.

    No, you did not. I asked you my question first.

    Yes.

    Now let's see if you will continue to dodge.

    Does Trump have to notify Congress before killing the Supreme Leader of Iran? Do you believe that actual intelligence existed regarding Soleimani planning to target four US embassies like Trump alleged?

    So we're all clear, you don't believe Soleimani was an ongoing threat and would continue his attacks and continue killing our forces and innocent civilians in his terrorist attacks.

    Do you think the "ongoing threat" was eliminated or exacerbated by killing Soleimani?

    Oh, he did phrase his question in the negative, didn't he? Thanks.

    Yes, I believe he was an ongoing threat.

    OK you're not going to answer because you know Soleimani was an ongoing threat and would continue his attacks and continue killing our forces and innocent civilians in his terrorist attacks?

    Yes I believe our embassy's were threatened as he had already attacked one of them DUH.

    No I might not. And there is nothing more specious than an argument that if we cannot limit all threats we can't eliminate any threats. That is utter folly.

    I did answer with the word "Yes" (although @Talon pointed out that I meant to say "No" because you phrased the question in the negative).

    But as to your responses, do you believe that Trump needs to notify Congress before killing the Supreme Leader of Iran?

    Also, you said he had already attacked one of the embassies (source?) and do you believe that there was actual intelligence to support the claim that he was threatening four embassies?

    Depends on the what and why and where, why would he target the Supreme Leader who is not on the battlefield not directly training and planning and ordering attacks? Make the case to do so and then we'll discuss what notifications would be required.

    You missed the one in December?

    I answered your question, yes I believe embassies on the target list.

    Which justified his being taken out.

    So you discount the reaction to an embassy attack on "sabre rattling and blatant dick waving"?

    No your opinion is not fact.. Dont know how making something another font makes it factual but you just run with that ~

    No need for me to run. I'm just stating facts. Care to dispute my facts?

    BTW, I don't change fonts. Adding emphasis is not changing fonts. Care to dispute that with a retired technical writer?
