Sorry for the rubbish title but I couldn't see a new thread!

GingerIvy Thu 13-Apr-17 21:13:19

hahahahaha I started one too. i'll have mine deleted. That's what we get for waiting so long.

Lweji Thu 13-Apr-17 21:13:48

Trump is da bomb.

Thanks, Cave. smile

I like Ginger's opaque chocolate cake reference. Will you and Ginger have a new thread face off like Trump & North Korea?

cozietoesie Thu 13-Apr-17 21:16:12

Oh - and Ginger also. grin

GingerIvy Thu 13-Apr-17 21:16:37

Nope. I've already put a link to this one on mine, and requested MNHQ delete mine. I won't escalate. nothing to see here. grin

Lweji Thu 13-Apr-17 21:17:54

Oh, there's an interesting Trump-smashcake-Homeland threads crossover going on. grin

Thanks both! Is this going to turn into brinkmanship or will we go straight to deploying bombs ala trump?

cozietoesie Thu 13-Apr-17 21:22:27

Well after today's 'business'...............

woman12345 Thu 13-Apr-17 21:23:13

Phew, thanks CaveMum close call.

CaveMum Thu 13-Apr-17 21:24:12

I did contemplate using MOAT somewhere in the title (Mother Of All Threads) following today's events, but thought maybe it's a bit soon!

Sorry Ginger, by the time the next thread comes round hopefully this darn baby will be out so you're free to have that one!

Whatthefoxgoingon Thu 13-Apr-17 21:32:06

I feel so far down the rabbit hole now.....

GingerIvy Thu 13-Apr-17 21:34:05

Cave Silly. I'm not bothered in the least. I don't actually like starting threads, but noticed we didn't have one and well, you know the rest. grin I'm quite happy to be on this one.

How a US attack/invasion of Syria and Iran helps various players-got all this?

CaveMum Thu 13-Apr-17 21:36:37

Have they given any more info on the death of Sheila Abdus-Salaam? The reporting is very vague, they're not saying if it's a suspicious death or not.

I found you! I thought you had gone into hiding and I might have to resort to dropping the big one to flush you out.
