    Oil Oil Oil. Fitting oil comes from the decay of life seeing as how many millions have died for it and from its use

    The reporter said (of course CBS twisting the story) "10 minutes before the strike President was informed of 150 deaths" Its not what the tweet says. No one knows how long before the strike was to take place the President was told how many would die. He just said " 10 Minutes before the strike I stopped it..." I am sure that President Trump was informed much earlier as he would have asked much earlier in order to formulate a calculated decision. We all know thats how Trump is. CBS,,still hasnt learned the lessons of CNN & MSNBC, perhaps they should get the same results.

    I believe Americans will protest if they drag us into war. This will be the beginning of the end of the military industrial complex that’s greased by oil and petrodollar.

    Americans need universal healthcare, improvements in solar and battery tech and climate change will be impossible to ignore as our city’s get taken over by the ocean.

    Plus the lead poisoned brain damaged sociopathic baby boomers are going to get replaced in a big way in 2020

    Trump's typical one-two-three moves: create his own crisis, but blame it on previous administrations, then reverse course, and finally credit himself for averting a disaster.
