Who was supposed to be watching him??

Sites. Like Yazd, a Zoroastrian cultural center with a major fire temple.

Iran was once the great Persian empire of antiquity, the home of Cyrus to whom all the “christians” are comparing Trump.

Hey, remember when the taliban blew up the Buddha statues in Bamyan and we all thought that was outrageous?

Nothing is too outrageous for Annoying Orange.

I wonder which cultural site Iran would be willing to sacrifice to provoke Trump into doing something completely unforgivable? You know, something that would trigger a 25th amendment. Or an indictment. Or would dislodge McConnell from Trump’s ass. What would it take?

Is simply threatening a war crime enough or does he actually have to carry it out? If Pompeo goes on the morning shows and says Trump wasn’t serious or was only kidding, who will ask the obvious question- how do you know for sure he won’t do something insane with his twitchy finger on the nuclear football?

And what would a US under international sanctions feel like? Would we be held hostage to Trump’s crazy base like Iran is held hostage to its ayatollah lovers or are we better than that?

Asking for 300000000 friends.
