Bar, never one to pay too much attention to the news media (bless her heart) is suddenly hearing the screamers and is worried about what Iran may do to us for Trump’s assassination of the terror generals. Nothing, I say, at least not here in the relatively sparsely populated middle of the country.
Iran is a poor police state with little in the way of technology, no air force to speak of, no navy, and above all no intercontinental ballistic missiles. Even if they finally (after years of bluster) build a nuke, putting it atop an ICBM to withstand launch and flight is almost as hard as making the ICBM. So no worries, unless you live nearby. And we don’t.
Spengler has it right, though. The Iranian regime is mad. We’ve been at war with them since long before 9-11. Preemptive destruction of their nuclear facilities would be wise. And the sooner the better.
“The enemy we have been fighting all this time is only the most brutal, radical and impatient, relentless and daring part of the horde that is breaking across Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East and America. This is a clash of civilizations. The thousands dead on 9/11 and the thousands more dead since then, are only a small down payment on the horrors to come…While we spend fortunes to build nations, the horde is building its own nations in the cities of Europe and in the old manufacturing centers of America…”
Hence anti-Semites like Congresswoman Illan Omar are on the rise.

Biden basically created ISIS, says former defense secretary and Marine general Jim Mattis.
Biden, not Trump, has the blood of millions on his hands.
Ilhan Omer (actually Elmi) is flying to Ramallah in early August, via Ben Gurion whence she may (just may) have to sit on the ground until takeoff again because she’s denied entry. Needs a waiver on Israel’s anti-BDS law from Bibi. Of course she knows all this. Why do you think she’s going?
Rich with entertainment possibilities, even if Bibi doesn’t bite, as she pins the radical tail on the Donkey. Go for the buttered popcorn.
UPDATE: They’re letting her in out of “respect for the Congress.” Oh.
MORE: No, they’re not. Israel blocked her and her Rep pal Tlaib from entering because of their BDS activism and Israel’s anti-BDS law. Just what they wanted, probably. A nice, nasty controversy. “Also noteworthy is the fact that the sponsors of Reps Omar and Tlaib’s trip was an organization called Miftah, that has claimed that ‘Jews use the blood of Christians in Jewish Passover.’”
No, not the 12th Man of Texas A&M fame (where Mr. Boy is working this summer and taking two courses) but the mystical one involved with Shiite Armageddon and the imposition of Islamic law on the world.
Shooting down a U.S. Navy drone is a good way to start one…
Mrs Charm’s good friend Michele Kay Schultz, came up in Hong Kong for part of her peripatetic life. She passed in 2011 but her memory lives. Wonder what she’d say about this:
“How, precisely, China (or Hong Kong’s titular boss, Ms. Lam) might be compelled to scrap this proposed extradition law is a question perhaps best left to President Trump’s national security team. But if America, Britain and the rest of the world’s great democracies do not stand squarely, clearly and convincingly with the heroes of Hong Kong, there is a great danger that China will read the further abandonment of Hong Kong’s people as yet another signal that the Free World will not defend its own.”
Russia, after all, defended Venezuela until the threat of a Trump invasion evaporated.
