Fox News is celebrating Soleimani's assassination as an American victory. I'm thinking about the members of Trump's cabinet and the role they may have played in deciding to take an action that is clearly an act of war unauthorized by either House of Congress. With the idiots listed below, the only thing that one could expect was a clusterfuck in most aspects of government. It's a miracle that many more disasters have not fully unfolded. But I've been saying since Trump's inauguration that there's an iceberg of unseen corruption, criminality and idiocy that we have not yet seen yet.

We have moron fascist who wants Julian Assange executed, Mike Pompeo for Secretary of State. This is not the kind of leader who stands up to the President when the President is wrong.

We have a corporate hack, and former military industry lobbyist and vice president of government relations at Raytheon Mike Esper, as Defense Secretary, accountable only to the President. This is not the kind of leader who stands up to the President when the President is wrong.

We have notorious liar Attorney General Joseph Barr a religious fundamentalist who puts loyalty to the president above defense of the constitution.This is not the kind of leader who stands up to the President when the President is wrong.

Then there's former hedge fund manager Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin, who wants to roll back Dodd Frank. He failed to report $95 in assets when he was being considered for the job. This is not the kind of leader who stands up to the President when the President is wrong.

We have oil industry lobbyist Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt. Wikipedia reports that he violated federal law in the way he moved used cash from national park admission fee. This is not the kind of leader who stands up to the President when the President is wrong.

An anti-science, climate change denying Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Purdue has denied the effects of climate change on weather. Wikipedia reports, " In December 2018, he changed the nutrition standards for school lunches to allow more refined grains, allow milk with added sugar, and increased sodium." This is not the kind of leader who stands up to the President when the President is wrong.

Former investor and fake billionaire (he claimed he was and Forbes proved he wasn't one) Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross has the nickname King of Bankruptcy, having presided over eight of the biggest bankruptcies to date, as of 1998. His coal company received hundreds of citations for safety violations and 12 miners dies under his leadership. This is not the kind of leader who stands up to the President when the President is wrong.

Former lobbyist Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar was president of the U.S. division of the Eli Lily and company. He opposes Obamacare and abortion rights. You might think, because he has a history of supporting some regulations that he might stand up to Trump, but health companies like regulations because they use them to shelter them from all kinds of liabilities.

Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao is the wife of Mitch McConnell. Nuff said.

Billionairess Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos is a fanatic for privatizing schools and has betrayed millions of college students by refusing to credit them for student loan forgiveness and had violated court orders regarding collecting interest on student loans for tuition to for profit, bankrupted company Corinthian Colleges.

Add these up and you have a profoundly disturbing, profoundly integrity and morality impaired cabinet of fools, idiots, narcissists and psychopaths. It is not surprising that Trump went ahead, without consulting with allies, without getting the authorization of either House of congress in his assassination which is tantamount to an act of war. It is a logical outcome of having a Congress that has totally, under the leadership of both Trump Enabler Mitch McConnell and Nancy Pelosi who allowed passage of funding that specifically stripped out controls that would have defunded non-authorized conflict with Iran.

We need a president who will appoint people of integrity, with the wisdom, character and integrity, proven by their life history, to do the right thing and to advise the president to do the right thing.

Sadly, our current situation is very similar to what was portrayed in the movie, Idiocracy.

Trump doesn't realize it even, but the Deep State lives and exercises control directly within Trump's own White House/Cabinet. He thinks his tweets rule and organize the world.

Sadly the video is humorous.

We are in the midst of The Apocalypse. We don't realise it because we are still here. We cannot it seems, comprehend what it would be like if we were not here. Therefore, we can remain apathetic and hope that shoes don't start dropping.

I hope that you're not against going barefoot sometimes. Actually, you might find that it feels good enough that it suppresses apocalyptic worries. It surely can't hurt.

Thanks for your time and care.

The disastrous relations and illegal sanctions have brought sufferings to millions of elderly, children and ill people including ten million refugees who have escaped the region from Russia/USA/UK aggressions.

There are laws and international UN rules to follow to keep us from being savages.

Many countries have genuine issues with USA/UK which have been ignored, especially in Western kangaroo courts.

If we show the world that assassination is fine and good, others may justify it for doing it too which is wrong.

Trump is carrying the 'stain of impeachment' on his person with every step he takes - he can never be 'exonerated' even if the Majority Senate Republicans, and some Democrats, voted "NAY", 'not to remove' him from office in a Senate trial. His persona, all important to his ego and self-esteem, his strong belief in himself that 'he can do no wrong' has been shattered 'into a million pieces' by Pelosi ("the president is impeached") and the Democrats and each step Trump takes will weigh very heavily on him as he continues pretending he 'did no wrong' - of course, he should have been resigning ('vote of his unfitness') 'forthwith' if he truly wanted to 'keep America great' in 2020, instead of 'rattling his saber'. #AbuseOfPower #ObstructionOfCongress.

The video should have also covered the inbreeding of the rich and ruthless selecting for the most rich and ruthless. Was anyone cheering for the high IQ dweebs in the video to be successful breeders?

If you can watch the movie, it's really well done. So much idiocy-- it's frightening how much it has become a reality.

That's what happens when the rule of profit over life takes over. Virtue has no value in this system.

I think Trump is trying to start a war with Iran to derail impeachment.

I want to offer a "ray of hope" for a possible outcome of the assassination that we and the people of Iran could celebrate: If the government of Iraq orders US troops out of the country for committing an unlawful act on their soil, the US position in eastern Syria will immediately become logistically untenable, and Iran could rightly claim that Trump has given Soleimani a legacy he would have given his life for; no retaliation is necessary. Meanwhile, Trump's action will be revealed as an idiotic decision that undermines the entire US position in the Middle East, which will greatly weaken his power and chance for re-election. It could happen!

I voted for Trump to get us out of the Middle East quagmire, not do Israel's' dirty work. During the campaign he said that we made things worse in Iraq, Libya and Syria with our meddling. It's becoming apparent that Trump is under the sway of Sheldon Adelson and the nationalist wing of Zionism thru his Likud son-in-law.

If Hillary had been elected, the bombs would have been falling three years ago.
