Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia is looking forward to a US war with Iran. It is worth mentioning that he is the #1 weapons customer of the US. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel only wanted 4 things from president Don:
1. US recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel (December, 2017)
2. Us recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights ( March, 2019)
3. Keep sending US tax money his way (ongoing)
4. Start a US war against Iran (in the works)
I’d say Bibi is knocking it out of the park! He’s 3 for 4 so far...

This could be very good for the US economy. That is, IF, we do not borrow all of the cash to fight this war from China. If we make the correct moves, such as we did during WWII, to actually produce all of the armaments here domestically. This conflict could be turned into a very lucrative endeavor. But this time we all could benefit from it. Unlike our last 20 year conflict in the Middle East, where only a handful of people made a tremendous amount of money from it. This time we all could make some money.

WWII was funded by tax increases and a lot of rationing by the Americans. Coffee, sugar, tobacco, tires, gasoline, small caliber ammo, shotgun shells, just to name a few. Try any of that today, see how far that will get you. The American public would not stand up for any rationing or tax increases

What an opportune time to revisit this post! The Don consistently belittled our 17 Intelligence agencies throughout his reign, even denying in spite of all evidence that the Russians interfered in our 2016 elections. Suddenly he is a great believer and relied on their data. “Hallelujah”, says Don. “I have seen the light! I have assassinated an evil Iranian general. Can I get an amen?” Nothing like a good diversion in the middle of impeachment...Bibi may get all four of his wishes.
Fair use for political discussion, and agreement with my views is always appreciated.

Well...my draft number was very low in the teens, but I was diagnosed with bone spurs, so I was unable to serve.

Mine was #59.  Of course that is when HUNDREDS a week were DYING.  (Not many Volunteering at
that time).  Being from a family with enough wealth to send me to college, I was "Exempt".  Not really very "Fair" but very AMERICAN.  

MONEY and PROFITS that's AMERICA

and the poor bastards who never get to enjoy it.....
those were the "KIDS" being DRAFTED to fight a war. 

and it seems those with money who did "Volunteer" were 
called "traitor" when they voiced an opinion against what they had seen....

and even a "LOSER" for having been captured.  

MAGA
