concerned citizen ...... This is the clown who says that according to intelligence gathered, Soleimani was plotting attacks against the US. The same intelligence services that he tweets and attacks on a daily basis and calls liars. Can't have it both ways.

Ammee Vanderpool ......In the same speech, Trump criticizes Obama's plan limiting Iran's nuclear capability then says "we must all work together toward making a deal with Iran that makes the world a safer, and more peaceful place."

He pulled out of the deal that achieved that.

Steve Herzfeld ......#TrumpSpeech I'm struggling to find the words to explain how much I'm freaking out. Trump* is unstable. He is dangerous. I don't understand how any normal person can watch this 'speech' and admire Trump*. I don't understand why the GOP Still has his back.

"Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities
no doubt have crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.

Tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely
and with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with
your old nonsense.

This day is all that is
good and fair.
It is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on yesterdays."

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

"There is a rank due to the United States, among nations, which will be withheld, if not absolutely lost, by the reputation of weakness. If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace … it must be known that we are at all times ready for war." —George Washington (1793)

"They [surviving ISIS fighters] have better techniques, better tactics and a lot more money at their disposal. They are able to buy vehicles, weapons, food supplies and equipment. Technologically they're more savvy. It's more difficult to flush them out. So, they are like al-Qaeda on steroids."

-Lahur Talabany, a top Kurdish counter-terrorism official, in an interview with the BBC.

"Five years after the killings at Charlie Hebdo and Hyper Cacher, France has learned to live with the Islamist threat.

"Not a month goes by... without a murderous attack with the cry of 'Allahu Akbar' taking place on our soil.... But what is the point of fighting the effects of Islamism if we do not tackle the origins of this ideology of death? On that front, however, denial continues to compete with naiveté. Nothing has changed in the last five years. On the contrary.

"In the name of diversity, non-discrimination and human rights, France has accepted a number of blows to its culture and history... Islamists are a hot-button issue. They continue the fight which, even without weapons, has all the allure of a war of civilizations. Is the famous 'Charlie spirit', which some people thought was blowing after the January 2015 attacks, just an illusion?"


-Yves Thréard, deputy editor at the daily newspaper Le Figaro.

Robert Reich @RBReich .... You know what gives the stock market a sugar high? Cutting taxes on corporations & corporations using the savings to buy back their shares. You know who benefits? Just corporations. The typical American household remains poorer today than it was before the 2008 financial crash.

Daniel Dale @ddale8 ....Over two days, Trump has gone from 1) not mentioning embassies to 2) saying it was the embassy in Baghdad to 3) saying it was embassies plural to 4) saying it was four embassies.

"There are such relationships which must be a very great, almost unbearable happiness, but they can occur only between very rich natures and between those who, each for himself, are richly ordered and composed; they can unite only two wide, deep, individual worlds."


From "Letters of Rainer Maria Rilke, 1892-1910,1945"

"Why do German people behave so apathetically in the face of all these abominable crimes, crimes so unworthy of the human race? ... The German people slumber on in their dull, stupid sleep and encourage these fascist criminals....[The German] must evidence not only sympathy; no, much more: a sense of complicity in guilt....For through his apathetic behaviour he gives these evil men the opportunity to act as they do.... he himself is to blame for the fact that it came about at all! Each man wants to be exonerated ....But he cannot be exonerated; he is guilty, guilty, guilty!... now that we have recognized [the Nazis] for what they are, it must be the sole and first duty, the holiest duty of every German to destroy these beasts."
