Makes one wonder if cheesegate is really a crime?

Cheesegate really has some folks upset.

Who is really cutting the cheese here?

"Anti is lying again, just like with the cheese topic."

Quite possibly the most unintentionally funny line I've read in awhile.

Were you two married at some point?

Anti is lying again, just like with the cheese topic. Johnson said we need a Trump deal to replace the Iran nuclear agreement. That hardly is distancing the UK from the US.

What's the difference in Trump and Clinton? We have actual evidence that Trump had someone killed.

That is what is scary about Trump. He just kill a person mostly for his own political purposes. Trump could kill anyone for the same reason. He just has to think one day it would help his political career.

Johnson & Trump, birds of a feather. Trump doesn't even know what his deal is.

Maybe we can get CNN to set up headquarters over there. We have already had to kick them back across the water one time we can do it again.

I was almost positive you were going to blame Hillary and Obama

Hillary is a murderer

That will never happen but if it does I blame Harry and Meghan

It's a significant threat, skeptic. We were concerned that Iran could create an alliance with Iraq, and then use their newfound oil barrels to influence China and Russia. It didn't even cross my mind that the UK could side against us!

Trump aka "the art of the deal"

I'm absolutely sure that this will happen. No doubt.

President Donald Trump's order to assassinate Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani has triggered a major rupture between the US and its historically closest ally, the UK.

In remarkably outspoken comments, UK Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said in an interview published Sunday that Trump's isolationist foreign-policy stance had prompted the UK to look for alternative allies.

"I worry if the United States withdraws from its leadership around the world," he told The Sunday Times.

He added: "The assumptions of 2010 that we were always going to be part of a US coalition is really just not where we are going to be."

The comments came after Prime Minister Boris Johnson's government distanced itself from the attack that killed Soleimani, with UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab labeling it a "dangerous escalation" that risked a conflict in which "terrorists would be the only winners."

A spokesman for Johnson was also quick to condemn Trump's threats to target Iranian cultural sites, if carried out, as a breach of international law and possibly a war crime.

The UK is now openly threatening to tear up its long-standing defense partnership with the US.
