I wonder how seeious this think with Iran,and the US will become ?
Very.

Trump has effectively declared war on Iran.  You're not supposed to kill the other side unless they pose an immediate threat.  And that Iranian guy wasn't.  Imagine if the French assassinated the British Chief of Staff because he was a bad guy.  The British would be rightly pissed and get revenge.

Strictly speaking, American presidents are supposed to notify Congress before they do something war-like before war starts.  Trump didn't.  And the explanation he did send eventually to Congress was classified so, strictly speaking, the public won't know why he ordered it.

And since about the 1950's (the CIA were running amok in Sth America at the time), Americans (and American Presidents) are not allowed to assassinate foreign powers.  Trump's done exactly that.

Iran won't respond directly.  They don't need to since they have proxy armies in at least Syria, Iraq and the Lebanon.  Already, there's been attacks on Americans in Iraq and Kenya.  The Iraq parliament has voted to kick the Americans out.  All the world powers except Russia, Turkey & Israel have diplomatically said it was a stupid idea.  The oil price has shot up.

And it's only being, what, 2 days?

Dirty Bomb van full of dynamite and uranium dosent matter where they explode it ,it will frighten fuck out of the US and their butchering buddies .WATCH THE TURKS thats where the real story is .

Met a fellow from Sudan in Manchester last Thursday. He had some interesting stories to tell about the Yanks and Brits in that part of the world. There's bigger things than oil the Psychos in power are after. I never knew Sudan was called so because it was "Land of the Blacks"...another great homage to British colonialism....not to mention the French. Lord Kitchener told them Chavs that their country needed them....and they duly obliged....slaughtered.

I don't like any of those touristy bars with their touristy prices and touristy beer... best left to tourists and those suffering from gender fluidity or homosexuality, IMO. I'll be up in the city for the darts next month, thought we might try Wetherspoons this year although I won't stay if there's any smell of traveller off it, ended up in the Oval last year which was OK but pricey.

Hasn't changed a great deal... maybe less newspaper men propping up the bar but still a few. Convenient for the Luas up to the Point Depot.

The previous year we went to the bar beside Store St Garda Station... that was OK and the barman told us the secret knock in case the darts went on past closing time, which was nice of him given that we're not regulars.

Citywest is a better venue but probably not big enough for the Premier league... and a cunt to get to.
