Idea That Iran Strike Will Be Quick Is A 'Total Fallacy' | MTP Daily | MSNBC

66 Comments on "Idea That Iran Strike Will Be Quick Is A ‘Total Fallacy’ | MTP Daily | MSNBC"

  1. Iran would be a real war. Not these “terrorist” guerrillas we’ve been pushing around in Iraq and Afghanistan

    • @Tim Countis yep. That many would die in just the opening months of an Iranian War. You forget that Iran is an established country with an entrenched army with modern capabilities. Not a group of rag tag Muslims, or fueding Sunni and Shia

    • @Bobby Babylon I’m not a baseball fan but that is ridiculous. There haven’t been that many Yankee’s since the game was invented. So most of them are already dead.

      The US will suffer a lot of they started this war; they’ll use their proxies and cruises missiles against all bases in the Gulf, it’ll be the last excision for the US in the region

    • Usa can easily win a regime change war with iran…. the cost would be maximum of 20,000 dead marines and maybe a trillion usd which is something america could afford….

  2. Trump is no longer mentally stable enough to put in front of cameras. He’s further embarrassing America, not to mention making our country weaker.

    Trump and all his cronies should send all their kids to fight first!!!!!

    • @Chris Farrell my dear, i’m an Iranian, and i love American.
      could you tell me what do you mean by “we can’t just stand by and let them do what they’re doing”?

    • President Satanyahu wants war with Iran, at the cost of US tax dollars and dead children in uniform.

    • @sepasgozar so doo you thank it’s ok to blow up oil fields and seize oil tankers because I doo not I dont want to see a war .I thank thay need to smoke a peace pipe and talk it out. But that wont happen

    • @Chris Farrell Yemenis and Saudis are at war with each other.
      and Yemenis blown up the Saudi oil fields.
      and i don’t know what does it have to do with you as an American or me as an Iranian?
      and about the oil-tanker; it’s OK for you to capture our oil tankers.
      but it’s the end of the world if we retaliate the same?
      by the way don’t forget the money that Brian Hook was going to bribe the oil-tanker captain will all be paid out with the taxpayers pockets.

  4. If the cadet bone spurs is worried about the Saudis, let him go there and defend their oil wells himself.

    If China dumped our bonds on the market it would cripple the U.S. without firing a shot.

      Bobby Babylon racist?! What country are you from bet it’s not nearly diverse as the us

    • @BURNING BRIDGES bet wrong and we also have no nazis and kkk marching in the streets like you do. We also have human rights that USA lacks. We live longer, better healthcare without daily mass shootings like you. 304 this year

    • @BURNING BRIDGES exactly. Every country less diverse than america is more racist than america. That includes the non white countrys

    • @Bobby Babylon we don’t have nazi marches that’s called antifa. they’re loser adult babies that have nothing better to do than to find ways to break things and be offended.

  6. Thank you to the people of Ukraine. You just might have saved the world.

  7. Yet no recognition that, perhaps the lies and the killing of civilians, is maybe what is fuelling the hate towards america and the west!

    If Trump believe himself to be the emperor, he and his whole cabinet should be on the frontline of war just like Agamemnon or King Baldwin of Jerusalem.

    WMD in Iran now too. American justice. Another Vietnam whoopy.

  10. Trump told Obama to let Saudi Arabia fight it’s own battles. That was then , this is now. Hypocrite in chief.

  11. Hussein was blamed for 9/11. Iran is blamed for the Saudi attack. When the wrong people are punished for the wrong reason, it only guarantees these kind of events will continue.

  12. Who will Trump help if North Korean attacked Japan, South Korea or Taiwan so take note USA is NOT reliable Ally

    This just a distraction to sell weapons to Suadis. Kashoogi killed with bonesaw nothing, famine in Yemen from Saudi led war back by U.S.A. nothing.
    #StayWoke

    • In the US’s side you have Saudi Arabia the murderer of tens of thousands of women and Children in Yemen, the perpetrator of a man made starvation campaign against millions of people in Yemen. A country whose leader has journalists kidnapped, tortured, murdered, their bodies hacked to pieces and dissolved in acid. 
      Then you got a racist Apartheid state of Israel that violates the civil rights of millions of Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza and builds settlements in the West bank.

    • Saudi Arabia is more than MBS, Bin Laden, and their terrorists. They may come and go, but our strategic alliance must remain for the good of both nations, Israel, and the region.

  14. Wonder who’s whispering into his ear 🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️

  15. Isis, Al Qaeda all originated in Saudi Arabia so my question is why are American soldiers about to be deployed there to protect them? Let’s also not forget 9/11 and Saudi Arabia’s attempts at whitewashing their involvement…….Disgraceful!!!!!!!

    • USA and Saudi founded the alqaeda back in 85 to 89 against the Soviet union. only at that time it wasn’t called “Alqaeda” then it blew back into their faces! Americans always find away to screw them self over

    • Samantha
      I think one thing that everyone should take notice of ,is that the present policies of trump supported by Israel are encouraging fascism throughout the world .
      This is disaster for everyone.

    • Taliban Trump thinks the Democrats and Media are his enemies and our country’s enemies are his friends. What about 45’s behavior made you think he is at all interested in doing what is best for America or Americans?

  16. Iran is nothing like Pelosi, it will fight and outnumbers Saudis 60 to 1, Iran really has nothing to lose.

  17. …a recent scientific study revealed that 1 out of 3 trump supporters is just as stupid as the other 2…

  18. Crickey! 18,000 thousand ISIS members unaccounted for 👀

    The price of 1 drone = all of Flint’s water, fixed. THIS IS BULL-PLOP! Iran is a democracy. Saudi Arabia carried out 9/11.

  20. 5 time draft dodger, bone spur space cadet #PRESIDENTPUSSYASSBITCH 😀 going to war
    IMPEACH NOW AMERICA
