 I read somewhere that Mel Gibson is making a re-do of "The Wild Bunch". He's probably tapped Greg as his technical adviser...

John (the walrus) Bolton has his war plan ready but Trump is now pumping the brakes:
"Amid reports that Bolton had ordered updated contingency plans for an Iranian attack that would send as many as 120,000 US troops to the Middle East and US intelligence indicating a heightened threat of attack from Iran, Trump on Thursday headed for a diplomatic off-ramp, making clear to top aides that he does not want a war with Iran and signaling publicly to the Iranians that he is ready to talk."

Hmm, I see this one simmering for quite awhile...

Walrus! His grooming does make one wonder if he lacks a certain amount of seriousness. It also is rare for him to start talking without saying, "Well," Some days he will start everytime saying, "Well," At least that is what the media can show us.

Except that now the Brits have changed their tune on the threat from Iran.  

Guess you jumped the gun once again Rod.  You must be taking cues from CNN

Well, Rich, they're back to saying it's not a threat again! Those ballistic missiles on freighters from Iran were either being moved to prevent them from being hit given the tensions in the area, ie houdi terrorist attacks on Saudi freighters, or being placed in storage areas in Iran. BUT, commander and chief Trump just tweeted Iran better not ever threaten us again or that'll be the end of Iran!. Mission accomplished!!!
