Politiikka politiikkana. Tuo menee yli.
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/04/us/politics/trump-suleimani.htmlIn the chaotic days leading to the death of Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, Iran’s most powerful commander, top American military officials put the option of killing him — which they viewed as the most extreme response to recent Iranian-led violence in Iraq — on the menu they presented to President Trump.
They didn’t think he would take it. In the wars waged since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, Pentagon officials have often offered improbable options to presidents to make other possibilities appear more palatable.
After initially rejecting the Suleimani option on Dec. 28 and authorizing airstrikes on an Iranian-backed Shia militia group instead, a few days later Mr. Trump watched, fuming, as television reports showed Iranian-backed attacks on the American Embassy in Baghdad, according to Defense Department and administration officials.
By late Thursday, the president had gone for the extreme option. Top Pentagon officials were stunned.
Mr. Trump made the decision, senior officials said on Saturday, despite disputes in the administration about the significance of what some officials said was a new stream of intelligence that warned of threats to American embassies, consulates and military personnel in Syria, Iraq and Lebanon. General Suleimani had just completed a tour of his forces in Syria, Lebanon and Iraq, and was planning an “imminent” attack that could claim hundreds of lives, those officials said.
“Days, weeks,” Gen. Mark A. Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said on Friday, when asked how imminent any attacks could be, without offering more detail other than to say that new information about unspecified plotting was “clear and unambiguous.”
But some officials voiced private skepticism about the rationale for a strike on General Suleimani, who was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American troops over the years. According to one United States official, the new intelligence indicated “a normal Monday in the Middle East” — Dec. 30 — and General Suleimani’s travels amounted to “business as usual.”
That official described the intelligence as thin and said that General Suleimani’s attack was not imminent because of communications the United States had between Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and General Suleimani showing that the ayatollah had not yet approved any plans by the general for an attack. The ayatollah, according to the communications, had asked General Suleimani to come to Tehran for further discussions at least a week before his death.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Vice President Mike Pence were two of the most hawkish voices arguing for a response to Iranian aggression, according to administration officials. Mr. Pence’s office helped run herd on meetings and conference calls held by officials in the run-up to the strike.
Defense Secretary Mark T. Esper and General Milley declined to comment for this article, but General Milley’s spokeswoman, Col. DeDe Halfhill, said, without elaborating, that “some of the characterizations being asserted by other sources are false” and that she would not discuss conversations between General Milley and the president.
Ei tiedä, kun vähemmän on näyttöä sellaisesta joka ei ole sotaa aloittanut.Jännä nähdä miltä Trumpin toisen kauden käyrä näyttää noihin muihin verrattuna. Hyvä kuitenkin että Yhdysvaltalainen yleisö vaikuttaa nykyään niin valistuneelta että rauhanmies-meininki on suurempi uudelleenvalinta-valtti kuin sodan aloitus.
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/14/us/politics/trump-impeachment-articles.htmlThe House will vote on Wednesday to send the Senate impeachment charges against President Trump, allowing a long-awaited trial to begin, Speaker Nancy Pelosi told Democrats privately Tuesday, according to officials in the room.
The proceeding will be only the third time an American president has been put on trial in the Senate.
In a closed-door gathering with Democratic lawmakers on Tuesday morning, Ms. Pelosi detailed her plan to move on Wednesday to appoint the team of lawmakers who will prosecute the case against Mr. Trump, known as the House managers in his impeachment trial. The officials who described her private remarks spoke on condition of anonymity.
Unless things change, her timetable means that the House managers would ceremonially walk the articles of impeachment from the House chamber to the Senate well later in the day Wednesday, formally presenting them and prompting a trial to commence.
The speaker said she was not yet ready to share the names of the lawmakers she would select as managers, they said.
Kyllä täytyy ihmetellä, ettei yli 300 miljoonan asukkaan valtiosta löydy parempia pressakandidaatteja kuin Trump ja demareiden jostain kommunismin mausoleumista kaivetut Warren ja Sanders...Tapaamani amerikansuomalaiset ovat kivenkovia presidentti Donald Trumpin kannattajia. Yksi heistä kuvasi tiistaina demokraattisen puolueen presidenttiehdokkuutta tavoittelevaa Elizabeth Warrenia ”hulluksi naiseksi”.
Muutamaa tuntia myöhemmin ”hullu nainen” paransi huomattavasti mahdollisuuksiaan nousta Yhdysvaltain ensimmäiseksi naispresidentiksi.

you need the following to run for president: an ego so big as to be pathologically narcissistic, a skin so thick as to be entirely indifferent to what others think, a willpower so cyborg-like that you never let down and say the wrong thing, and a patience so remarkable that you can tolerate each and every idiocy of the never-ending process of campaigning.
In other words, you pretty much have to be insane. No wonder our candidates are all so bad.
