The message sent today - don't kill our troops or we will send something that will kill you all.

How about don t invade other countrys?

If another country invaded the USA you would fight the invaders, so whata ct suprsied when other countrys do the same when US troops invade?


How about don't fly planes into big towers in a country unless you are asking for trouble? Kind of like poking at a hornet's nest



At 2:00 min is gold


I just wonder how many bombs will miss the ISIS leaders COMPLETELY to keep the war ongoing?


Well seeing as it was a bunch of Saudi Arabians, part of a group sponsored by Saudi Arabians and lead by a Saudi Arabian......I think you invaded the wrong country.

I am not too fussed at the morality of Afghanistan compared to Iraq, hell every empire has had a shot at graveyard of empires so the USA deserves a shot too. Just dont complain if the natives shoot back!


When your wounded and left on Afghanistans plains
and the women come to cut up what remains
just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains
An'go to your Gawd like a soldier
Go go like a soldier
Go go like a soldier
Go go like a soldier
So-oldier of the Queen.

Rudyard Kipling...your comments are very relevant

Are you saying none of the 26000 bombs dropped last year were on ISIS?


26,000 bombs later and ISIS is bigger than ever world wide! Obama missed every strike pretty much and wasted a lot of money in doing so.

Give Trump half that to get the job done. That is a better deal.


Define "the job".
Show one example of any job ever actually completed.


Show me anything Obama completed to strengthen the US! But don't include the Iran deal because that just weakened it.

Well cuz President Trump was going to stop all of the foreign wars and war mongering and just focus on America First Dontcha' know.

Good Gawd. The idiots that voted for this maniac are just too stupid to breed. They wanted that Big Alpha that they all aspire to be in there though. You want a strongman, you get violence.

I know, I know.

"Better than Hillareeee!" Deflect, when you look like a dumb ass.



Those tears are mighty salty.

Oh I get it, believe me. But these guys don't mind dying for their cause. If anything, this type of thing radicalizes them even more. Plus it doesn't do much to eradicate the lone wolves out there who are being radicalized online. Wish we could unleash a MOAB super bug to scour the internet and destroy their online sites.

I'd love to think dropping these bombs will help our cause, but I'm just not convinced.


Well having been there this is like cutting off the head of the snake. This isnt the people willing to die this is the people willing to tell others to die. These local war lords for example care very much about their life and expect everyone to protect them. Because they are to important to die and are needed to tell other how to die. So this is a strike against leadership who hides in caves they dug out we spent months just mapping out caves. Froze our butt off for months.

So yeah, let them "double down" and let's see who flinches first.


Nearly twenty years of trying to make them "flinch" and all they've done is become bigger and more adamant that this fight will continue.

Good luck with that philosophy.


We've half-assed this effort for 2 and a half decades... let's see how things play out when we're actually trying to win.

It will be interesting to see how many people support this agression V. S how many cringe thinking this is too much show of muscle and too quickly at that . The past 7 days have been insane .

The question many want to know I'm sure is was Trump a globalist all along or did he get compromised by the shadow government recently ?

The 180 on so many of his policies in such a short time frame is shocking .


You bring this up while he stays good on one of his main promises. Why?

To be honest I would bury all combatants with pig entrails.

And lock combatants in a room with only pork to eat.
That’s not torture because you are giving them food In fact Muslims always say that Jihadis are not real Muslims…..so if they are not real Muslims they should be ok with eating pork.

It is shocking because for once a President is keeping a promise...something the American people are used to being lied to?

Do you really need to drop a bomb that has a radius of a mile? You cannot avoid innocents with these type of weapons..


It doesn't matter how many innocent men, women and children die aslong as it wasnt a chemical weapon.

We can take care of ourselves. Ranking is great. Come hang out with our military you might learn something!


I understand you don't like to hear it, and sure you guys may be able to take care of yourselves, but when it comes to war, you can't without help. Even your own Canadians are on here making that clear. Regardless of how you feel, we still have your back. Rest easy, partner.

As a Canadian, I can say that I'm happy we are cooperating neighbours with the US, because our military is weaksauce.


I am just an American Airmen... but I take exception to this statement, I have worked along side a number of Canadian military personnel. Yes the budget may be small in comparison to us and several other nations but there is nothing wrong with the Canadian fighting mans spirit or ability.

21000 lb bomb which is the most powerful bomb short of a Nuclear bomb


Britain had a 22,000 lb bomb in WW II so that statement is false.

Good points. Here's another one.

MPPC x (my new acronym for the terrorist groups centered in the Middle East) declared Jihad (Holy War) on the US before 9-11. Put into the vernacular, that means they use every tactic at their disposal and throw everything they got at us to win. Maybe we should play by the same rules?

The only side that needs to concern themselves with the "eye for an eye" mentality of the enemy is the side which chooses to not attempt to win. Otherwise, there's no one left to go after the eye when it's over.

I don't disagree with you in any way on this.

History has precedents that, despite modern media efforts to twist these into urban legends, actually were effective 100+ years ago.

Yes but for the third time on this thread ISIS IS NOT IN AFGHANISTAN.


And for the third time in this thread, you do not have more knowledge than our intelligence department. ISIS had a stronghold in the province that was bombed.
