    This is outrageous! I only charge $100,000 for a simple snake bite.

    Obviously you now know that you are undercharging?

    Trump urges Iran to talk over nuclear program, cannot rule out military action

    Those who haven't been living under a rock will know that last week the US has sent an aircraft carrier and bombers to the Iran region for reasons not disclosed beyond "there was evidence of a threat" or something of that nature.

    Today we see the above article which includes:

    At an impromptu news conference at the White House, Trump declined to say what prompted him to deploy the USS Abraham Lincoln carrier group to the region over what was described as unspecified threats.

    “We have information that you don’t want to know about,” said Trump. “They were very threatening and we have to have great security for this country and many other places.”
    I think that I can speak for most people in the US when I say that, yes, we -do- want to know about the information you have because right now you seem ready to start a war with Iran over a conflict that -you- started, with evidence that is even less existing than the faked evidence of WMD's in Iraq.

    Boing had scheduled to fix the fatal flaw in the 737Max, in THREE years. Stupid crashes sort of messed up the time table.
