Did Trump's deep jealousy of Obama fuel his decision to assassinate Soleimani?

After all, Obama took out Osama Bin Laden.

12. I agree , and probably suggested to him by putin , who'll profit greatly from this

While trump tries to look at ways he too can profit from it. Also putin is claiming intel set him up , so that is another sign he's likely involved in this too, and using this to weaken us with .

2. I expect it was a contributing factor, along with wanting to distract from his impeachment

and just wanting to look like a tough guy since Kim Jong Un broke up with him.

3. He loves to identify with the strength he doesn't have.

Look at the way he praises first responders and military people (even really bad ones who commit atrocities). When someone else does something heroic he seems to think its an extension of himself.

In his twisted logic, this assassination makes him "the good guy with a gun". He would never have the balls to risk his life for anything, but since he has the American military might at his disposal he can pretend that their strength comes from him.

No humility in this man at all. No sense of proportion. No anticipation of consequences. Everything comes down to I win, you lose.

But with Trump at the helm, we all lose.

4. I notice Trump blurted out "We got him" to reporters which is rather telling in this vein...

that was the iconic, oft-repeated sound-bite from Obama's post Bin Laden raid press conference.

6. Only a headshrink

The guy is clearly all kinda sick. Sometimes I think even if we tried, we couldn't find a person less capable of doing this job. Such an emotionally stunted creep. Most of his children are pathetic, entitled little assholes. So incredibly unaware. The blond one (not Jr.) actually tweeted something about opening a can of fucking whoop ass prior to the Soleimani killing. Like its a damn WCW match! This nightmare seems so real. When I wake up, I'm gonna write a book about it, but I'll bet nobody buys it cuz this is so unbelievable.

8. Three reasons for everything Trump does

Undo everything Obama did
Outdo everything Obama did
Redo some of what Obama did

10. Yes

Oh, and his tiny little ego and demented narcissism. Hey do you think Pompeo is his enabler?

11. I don't think Trump knew who Soleimani was UNTIL

someone told him he could "beat" Obama by doing this.

We've seen this before! A president who is completely mentally unfit, being manipulated by canny war profiteers into authorizing shit no rational person would. Reagan. Bush II.

13. I imagine they huddled around the 9th hole and finally came up with a distraction

from the impeachment hearings. So far it's working. Wonder what they ruled out. Euthanizing undocumented immigrants? Clear cutting Yellowstone? Burning the rest of California?

14. Trump suffers from so many different pathologies

Itís not possible to determine which one(s) heís operating under at any given time. I also think Putin has a hand in this assassination, since Russian oil prices have now spiked.
