    Are you saying that Bolton was urging President Trump to bomb the Iranian missile site? Unbelievable!!

  • S'aaruuk

    Actually….that’s a B1 Lancer, the “Bone” he’s holding, not a B2. So he’s getting his B1 vitamins. 😀

    • Chris Muir

      Updated, thanks, y’all!

  • Shonkin

    For the younger readers, Bolton is singing to the tune of the Beach Boys’ old standard Barbara Ann:
    “Ba Ba Ba Ba Barbra Ann”
    … and so on.

    • NotYetInACamp

      earlier sung by then living Senator John McCain.

      NPR said that he was jesting.

      Republican presidential contender Sen. John McCain (AZ) joked about bombing Iran this week during a campaign appearance in Murrells Inlet, S.C.

      McCain was asked by an audience member about possible U.S. military action in Iran.

      “How many times do we have to prove that these people are blowing up people now, never mind if they get a nuclear weapon. When do we send them an airmail message to Tehran?” a man in the crowd asked.

      In response, McCain said, “That old, eh, that old Beach Boys song, Bomb Iran” — which elicited laughter from the crowd. McCain then chuckled before briefly singing — to the tune of the chorus of the Beach Boys’ classic “Barbara Ann” — “Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, anyway, ah ….”

      The audience responded with more laughter.

      Curses! I wanted to be the first one to point that out! And “Wouldn’t it Be Nice” (another BB tune) if the “rockin’ and a-rollin’ rockin’ and a- reelin'” actually did visit Iran?

    • Punta Gorda

      Yeah. We sang the same song on the bus back from ASU in ’84.

  • Fox2!

    Looks more like a “Bone”. (B-1) than a B-2. Although either will get the job done.

  • NotYetInACamp

    I am so glad that there is an American adult making the decisions. Thank God for President Trump. May he continue making good decisions as each of the situations require.

    • Just wait and see what actually DOES happen. 🙂

      • NotYetInACamp

        I am waiting. And will duly note.

  • Pamela

    That’s not a B-52 or B-29. Maybe he needs a P 38.
    I carry one on my key chain 😉

    • JSStryker

      Pretty big airplane to carry on a key chain…:D

        Freshman at the USAF Academy asks the upperclassmen while marching, “Sir, we’re Air Force. Why do we have to carry these rifles?” The reply, “Because an F-4 is too heavy to shoulder.”

        • GWB

          an F-4
          You’re showin’ your age, son. Showin’ your age. 😉

          (We did still have the Lead Sled on the terrazzo when I was there.)

    • PaulS

      For opening the whup-ass? 😉

    • sgtcpt

      Miss Pamela I have your P 38’s big brother. Ironical stamped B 52. This larger version came with #10 cans of food items back when Army cooks were still using the old “B” rations.

      • Pamela

        Hello SGTCPT! My Dad (Navy) told me of the time he was sent in to cook for the Army because the Army cooks and Medics were getting killed by the NOKOS. The men had not had a hot or even a lukewarm meal in weeks. He gathered up there ration biscuits, softened then warmed them, added the jelly packs and the Guys had hot food. Same with the Instant coffee. He did a swap with the Ships Galley for Instant eggs and minutes steaks. Seems some bright bulb sent fresh eggs and raw meat to the front lines. No refrigeration and the eggs cracked easily with all the explosions. One thing that did come out of that mess was the Cooks and Medics no longer had to wear white (the reason they were getting shot).

        • NotYetInACamp

          No whites. Good decision. there can be intelligent decisions in the military. That is similar to when in the movie Forest Gump, the Lt told Forest Gump to never salute him. I had a cousin hump through the water and such in the delta for a few years as a platoon sergeant. He took care of his men.

    Democrats Announce Investigation of ACME Mfg. Co. for Selling Defective Products That Always Let Trump Get Away

    • John

      MEEP MEEP!

  • Mike-SMO

    The night at Deir az Zor a year+ ago makes it clear that guy from Brooklyn (OK, Queens, from Joisey there is no difference.) knows how to swing the big hammer. The hirelings of Moscow and Teheran jumped the river to squash them Kurdy-guys and got stomped, big time. Hellfires, MRLS, A-10s, AC-130, F-15s, and a few BUFFs, so no one felt left out. When the time was right. In the mean time, Israel & Jordan are doing bass solos in Gaza and at the Damascas Air Freight Terminal. Plus the Yemen “turkey shoot”. The Qudsey guys are loosing lots of blood and treasure which Persia is running out of. The “tanker attacks” were “Operation Squirrel” for the dim whitted.

    Anyone got “concert” posters?

    Nicely done, Mr. President.

  • Badger

    Sadly, this has to be one of your best this year Chris; thanks for calling it true. Sad that it has to be about a guy that gave me pause once I’d heard he’d insinuated himself into another White House circle – again. Frankly, I wish someone would just take Bolton out to the woodshed & leave him there.

    • interventor

      Bolton’s the big, barking dog used to distract what’s really happening.

      • I’m in agreement.

  • CaptDMO

    “We aren’t no thin red ‘eroes, nor we aren’t no blackguards too,
    But single men in barricks, most remarkable like you;
    An’ if sometimes our conduck isn’t all your fancy paints,
    Why, single men in barricks don’t grow into plaster saints;
    While it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, fall be’ind”,
    But it’s “Please to walk in front, sir”, when there’s trouble in the wind,
    There’s trouble in the wind, my boys, there’s trouble in the wind,
    O it’s “Please to walk in front, sir”, when there’s trouble in the wind.”

    Have a seat pajama boy.

      A fellow Kipling lover! Mega kudos!

      • Unca Walt

        Sigh… I’ve never been kippled.

  • JTC

    The best and worst thing about triggers is, there’s just one finger on it. Thank God it’s the short finger on there now and not the bony one of death.

    I supported that call days ago when some were screaming bloody murder.

    I did not, and do not, support the simultaneous one to go back to those same screamers for another chance at “compromise” on ejecting criminal insurgents from our midst and rejecting letting in more of them.

    Do they care about American lives? Only their own. Do they care about America? Only one they rule. So anything and everything they do in both these cases and in every other one, is to get that short-fingered monster and all his dirty deplorable out of their way, by any means necessary. If that means putting the nation to unnecessary and catastrophic war, and overwhelming the American people with illegal predators and parasites they are perfectly willing for US to pay the price.

    Don’t let the hawks make your national defense decisions Mr. President…and don’t let the vultures keep you from making your domestic defense ones.

    • NotYetInACamp

      Yes. There are those acting only in their self interest and agendas, as is their nature, and having no concern for Americans and what death and destruction those evil sociopaths might cause.

  • gafling

    Unfortunately the only thing that can get the attention of most of the world’s muslim population is naked, merciless force being visited upon them. Even then the survivors crawl home and wallow in the adulation of their tribes for getting their butt kicked but Hey, did you see who I was fighting?

    It is difficult to defeat an opponent who sees victory even in death.

    • Too Tall

      One does not defeat an enemy who embraces death as victory.

      You render them extinct.

      • GWB

        You give them all the victory they could ever want, and then some.

        • JTC

          Understand the sentiment. Which is why it’s a good thing that neither my finger, or Bolton’s, is on the trigger.

        • Toxic Deplorable B Woodman

          “……goes London, BOOM goes Paree, more room for you and more room for me……..”

      • Merle

        EXACTLY !!!

    • JTC

      Extinction is unlikely…as it has been for the last thousand years so it likely will be in the next thousand. The key is to avoid rendering death and extinction upon oneself in the process of controlling their growth and effect. The time will come to apply that control -in DT’s words “obliteration like you’ve never seen”- as they have no interest, even self-interest, in learning from their mistakes.

      They are one-dimensional and single-minded in their pursuit. Much like our internal adversaries here…in many ways they are overlapping entities. But we must defeat the latter (at least temporarily for they too are sadly immune from extinction) in order to defeat the former.

  • Spin Drift

    PDJT played them all like a fiddle, he even pounded a few bass beats into the Dumb Leadership (spit). To recap, Lets said leadership into briefing on raid, downgrades security level to do so (this immediately scrubs mission), targets are leaked by dumb underlings to give warning, NSA scoops up the communiques for later charges of treason, Dumb Leadership dances in the streets (another song reference for Chris), officially calls off raid for disproportionate response and spare rank and file Iranian lives, gets the MSM to not see the humanitarian and wise response, the MSM doesn’t know what to make of this so they say that there is discord in the inner circle and that Bolton is a WarHawk nut job (completely miss the concept that all warfare is based on deception), PDJT gets to gauge the response of Russia and China but there is a tepid meh, oil prices spike in the rest of the world to further crater their economies, China is stuck between a rock and a hard place, Xi has another incentive to concede to trade negotiations, time is ticking and while they weren’t watching Dumb Leadership (spit) is tossed the Immigration Bomb to solve.

    2019 is going to be a very good year (another song reference for Chris.)

    Spin
    5 moves out

    • JTC

      All deadly (heh) accurate Spin…

      But that I-Bomb got tossed right here in our midst.

      If (when) the DL’s fail to defuse it (again), DT will have to toss it again…this time with a short and sure fuse…where it belongs.

      Time is of the essence, as all else depends on it.

      Job One. Git ‘er Done!

  • WayneM

    Iran has been at war with “the great Satan” since at least 1979 in modern times… even longer if you consider the Crusades were defensive battles reclaiming countries/territory from successive empirical caliphates…

  • Swamp Fox

    Bolton needs to go. He’s a hawk, yes. And that’s better than being an Obama weenie. But playing the hawk with human lives when all we lost was just a damn drone is idiocy, fer chrissake. Thank God that President Trump kept our powder dry. And Bolton? He had to publicly eat a lot of crow making statements in support of our President’s decision to exercise restraint when you know he must have been screaming “Bomb them! Bomb them!”

    God bless and keep President Trump.

    • John

      I disagree.
      Bolton serves as a wonderful foil. His Bad Cop to the President’s Good Cop keeps _all_ of PDJT’s enemies off balance.
      It has often been said that The Donald’s Achilles Heel is the suburban housewife, but how will they vote if the drumbeat of war only comes from the Democratic side of the aisle?

    • GWB

      Shooting down the drone is still an act of war, and shrugging our shoulders because it is unmanned is NOT how you influence your enemies to not do that sort of thing anymore.

  • Pamela

    If we are going to drop anything on Iran, it should be BIRTH CONTROL!
    Lots and Lots of BIRTH CONTROL!

    • John

      I was thinking that the perfect way to deal with Radical Islam would be to sell them a potion that would guarantee all male children.
      We would then only have to fight off the hordes for another couple of generations and then walk in to claim a lot of free beachfront property.

      • NotYetInACamp

        What about that “gay” bomb? 🙂

      • Toxic Deplorable B Woodman

        I’ve been thinking of either radioactive dust, wafted from high altitude over Mecca and Medina during the hajj. Or maybe a bioengineered virus, heat tolerant, with delayed reaction, high fatality, keyed to those of Middle Eastern decent. Or both. A radioactive virus.
        A guy can dream, can’t he?
