And those TOWs went to Qaeda who was founded by Laden who was a Saudi. Qaeda was responsible for the 911 attack.

I thought we were at "war" against terrorism.

Seems like denying weapons would be part of the plan.


How fubared is the world getting...

BGM-71 TOW

Here it is in action.



This can be the TWH (Trump Whitehouse) trying to starve off and deal with ISIS. Instead of helping them like Obama admin did.

Russia has ways to deal with TOW. They use unmanned recon planes to locate them and then destroy them with artillery and air strikes. Supplying TOW to jihadists is nothing but a waste of tax money.

The really disappointing thing about the Obama/Kerry flooding Syria with ATGM, is that they crossed into Iraq and were frequently used to destroy American armor utilized by the liberating forces on their way to Mosul!

Abrams have been getting ripped across Iraq with TOW missilies given to them in Syria to use against Russia and Syria! A DAMN SHAME!

WaPo puts out an article stating Arabic allies AKA Saudis claim there is a back channel between Trump and Russia set up by Erik Prince, the founder of Blackwater. Dude, it's been several months since Trump was inaugurated and this claim comes out today. Too much coincidence if you ask me.


Honestly, I don't think there's anything Trump hasn't had his fingers in.

If he thinks there's a business deal, he's interested. People who believe Trump is pro America blows my mind.



It's like you never run a company before or something. I guess he shouldn't have ventured out into the global market eh?

The Hama offensive by jihadists failed big time. As of today they lost all they gained except for Souran. There are no more TOW videos popping up, suggesting they run out of TOW. And today, WaPo puts out an article stating Arabic allies AKA Saudis claim there is a back channel between Trump and Russia set up by Erik Prince, the founder of Blackwater. Dude, it's been several months since Trump was inaugurated and this claim comes out today. Too much coincidence if you ask me.

twitter.com...

WaPo article


What's a TOW?


Lol


Wow, that was a very helpful response, you must have thought long and hard to come up with that /sarc

This seems to add credence to the idea that the House of Saud is arming Daesh, could that not beconsidered criminal on the worldwide stage?

ISIS were created from Saddam's Tikriti Fedayeen. USA saw them as a valuable ally in suppressing the Shia majority in Iraq so took their fighters to training camps in Turkey in Konya Province. The CIA brought in an expert Mujahadeen bomb maker from Afghanistan to teach the Fedayeen how to make suicide vests. Israel provided military instructors and they taught them how to use various weapons. The CIA bought up all of Bulgaria's old stock of former Soviet small arms and supplied it to them via Turkey. A lot of Nazi era small arms still manufactured by Yugoslavia in the 1970s were purchased from Croatia.

This is the story of how ISIS was created.

Not because USA withdrew from Iraq. They trained the Fedayeen to counter the popular movement of Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, but instead they entered Mosul and massacred all the Shia they could find. That was the start of ISIS.

The rebels recycle the same claim about blowing up a bulldozer with a TOW every week or two. If all the claims were real, there would be a world-wide shortage of bulldozers, and Caterpillar would be making a fortune off this war.

Remember how we used to see lots of pictures of ISIS with brand-new Toyota pickup trucks, and people wondered where they were getting them from? We haven't seen that since Trump won the election.

I find those who dont understand the consequences of nuclear war idiots.


There is a huge diffrence between protecting Putin and not wanting to die in a nuclear holocaust.

But I guess for SJW nuclear war is ideal right? We will all finally be equal without any discrimination if we are all dead radioactive corpses!
