    Is that a promise or a threat?

    I think Nikita Kruschchev said pretty much the same thing back in the 50's as a threat, but I think Mr Thomas was probably making a promise. One that has nearly become true.

    Troubled that he was too late to obliterate the Library at Alexandria, Emperor Trump has his sights set on Iran's irreplaceable ancient history.

    Never mind that doing so would constitute a war crime; laws mean nothing to an emperor.

    Every day, I wake up and think he's hit bottom. I haven't been right yet.

    Finally, an alternative to the shopworn Hitler trope.

    I wonder who people compared Hitler to back in the day? Various Hunnish or Mongol monarchs?

    that happens in war of course, but yea deliberately wanting to target them, new low. This is why I'm saying the guy is quite possibly lost every single one of his marbles. And if impeachment drove him further off a cliff it was a bad choice strategically. A narrow impeachment it's hard to care about that seems not to have harmed him. Trump was wrong mind you, it's just hard to care that much about so narrow a scope, and no way to actually get rid of the guy that way, and he gets crazier and crazier possibly in response, or possibly just because, who knows.

    ---

    On who people compared Hitler too, uh didn't Hitler claim to be inspired by the Armenian genocide, so how about that? Speaking of which, on the literally endless list of people Trump has tried to alienate, he was declaring the Armenian genocide not a genocide recently . Ok, alienating Armenians now too (remembering the genocide is actually a big deal). Congrats Trump.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    I already compared him to Caligula. Not good enough for you?

    Are you talking about the nuclear agreement? The one agreed to by multiple European nations? (Hardly a unilateral move by President Obama...)

    THE FACTS: Itís the kind of deal that did not actually take place.

    When Iran signed the multinational deal to restrain its nuclear development in return for being freed from sanctions, it regained access to its own assets, which had been frozen abroad. There was no $150 billion gift from the U.S. treasury or other countries. Iran was allowed to get its money back.

    This seems to be another tale right out of the same canon that brought us Hillary's basement sex ring, the murder of Vince Foster, the falsification of President Obama's birth certificate, and all those other fables.

    I didnít count Little Boots because so much handed down about him was written by and for the people who needed to justify killing him. Mary Beard wrote a good essay on the subject.

    Not that I condone attacking statuary for itís symbolic value. That seems like a waste when there are so many more lively targets than images of Persian kings or Confederate generals.
