    Let me rephrase that - Name the last trigger that worked as the pols said it was going to work.

    They all know that a trigger is a killer - that's why they use them.

      Or have they always been window dressing to give political cover?

      Can a trigger be written in such a way that if the Obama Administration was 100% sincere in making the trigger real and legitimate it could work? Or is the nature of a trigger simply doomed to fail?
