Anyone whoever met striecher in person would never have signed such a form. I met him a few times in Denver. He was a very unsophisticated person when he was talking to me about finance among other things. As an aside didn't he have issues with a real estate deal like a decade ago?

Even factoring in vouchers?
Vouchers only start making sense by 2nd kid in school. I don't even have one.  I can buy a different house later if needed.

Welcome to CLE!
But man, this must be a hard time to move and get acclimated to a new place.

What made you choose Beachwood over UH?
I know. But it made the decision easier cause we needed to get into a house and my wife wanted to be close to her family. It's not crazy hard to get acclimated, we come to Cleveland heights like twice a year for the past 7+ years.

Beachwood has lower taxes.

it was the other way around, the protests started after they admitted
I meant more like get ahead of it. It was becoming clear that those twitter videos were not fakes.

Everyone knew it from the get go. I'm surprised they owned up to it so quickly. I guess they had to in order to quell protests.

They were going for the bomb regardless. The deal gave Iran a ton of breathing room to let soleimani build militias and support throughout the middle east and beyond. If Iran got a bomb without having a strong network it would be much more susceptible to say an airstrike or similar campaign. It's actually kind of neat how Iran has so many proxies it can use to carry out mischief to distract the world.
Like for example Israel would be very careful about a preemptive strike now that Hezbollah has 100,000+ rockets aimed at them and waiting for Iran's word. Same with Saudi Arabia with the Houthi's, same with America now with all the militia activity occurring in Iraq.

Not cancel the Iran deal. Now they will try harder than ever to get the bomb.

I really find it odd so many here believe killing this terrorist will save lives. Like the guy who took his place isn't just as bad or worse. Or the orders don't come from the top. Was this guy some great master mind that was irreplaceable?
Of course it will. Soleimani had a very strong handle on numerous militias. The next guy will at the very least have to do a lot of leg work to build trust across numerous factions who, in other circumstances, would be enemies. And that's assuming that the Quds have a smooth transition and there isn't any internal vying for power.

Speed of sounds. Kind of like thunder after lightening. Means that the plane was like 3 miles away or so when the missle hit.
