Trump: Iranian Boats That Make Improper ‘Gestures’ Will Be ‘Shot Out of the Water’

In a wide-ranging speech on Friday night, Donald Trump said that as president he would shoot Iranian boats out of the water if they make improper "gestures" toward American vessels, reports The Washington Post.

"And, by the way, with Iran, when they circle our beautiful destroyers with their little boats, and they make gestures at our people, that they shouldn't be allowed to make, they will be shot out of the water," Trump said to thunderous applause. Soon the crowd began to chant: "USA! USA! USA!"

It is really hard to see Trump not starting shooting wars all over the damn place---with significant support in the United Sates.

"Libertarians for Trump" needs to be disbanded.

  1. Please change the name of this blog to "Target Trump".

  2. So... a presidential candidate unequivocally stated in a public speech that should he be elected president, he would definitely initiate force and commit an undeniable act of war, i.e. he will not hesitate to order a USA Navy Destroyer to aggressively attack and kill the sailors of a sovereign foreign nation "in little boats" should they dare to make improper "gestures" towards the exceptional "Americans" that are approaching Iranian territorial waters.

    The unbelievable audacity of those pesky Iranians to assert and defend their property rights! How DARE anyone resist US provocations and aggression, right? I mean, why are those Iranian so upset with us? It's not like we've done ANYTHING to them at all to deserve "improper gestures".

    So... Trump made it perfectly clear that if made Commander-in-Chief he would not hesitate to start yet another war of aggression in the Middle East. A war in which likely thousands more young American men (an possibly soon also women) will die and be maimed and... he received "thunderous applause".

    I know, with Hillary we're guaranteed a World War that will eventually go nuclear, but at least with Trump we can look forward to hopefully only a major regional conventional war, right? So let us all pretend he's not yet another war-monger and let's remain silent. Who knows... THIS time it may be different right? Vote Trump. Hope and change we can believe in! Oh wait... Let's make America great again, or something.

    Surely he's only saying these things to gain popular support among conservatives and the military, right? So... he's the lesser of two evils so let's abandon our libertarian principles, hold our noses, close our mouths and all pretend that he's one of us.

    Nope, not me. I'd rather not play these silly games and and accept this false dichotomy of "democratic" "choice". I will not vote. I will rather remain principled and speak out against evil wherever I see it. Kudos to RW for sharing / posting this article and please keep the name of this blog "Target Liberty" for it's very apt indeed.

    ""Libertarians for Trump" needs to be disbanded." I second that.

    And on that cheerful note, my sincerely thanks to RW for all the effort and time that producing this blog takes, it is much appreciated.

    Kind Regards,
