Was reading some things on another site and some of the media is actually disappointed that this wasn't another Benghazi.

RCH327 was scheduled into Ramstein but is weather diverting into Frankfurt due to freezing fog at the base. Should be fuel and go.

ETA- RCH626 is descending into the Frankfurt area too.

Yep and that is because this can go right back to Obama and Hillary doing basically nothing as people were tortured and killed including the ambassador. They didn't want to upset the local Government...geez. The media would love to say "See Trump did it too!"

Trump is like OH HELL NO!

Brings back a lot of memories of my C-141 days from 1983 to 1995 and then C-130s from 1995 to 2008.

The ambassador didn't have to call or email 29 times for help either.

So far as the Iranians are concerned, this is a tactic that works.

Take an embassy and/or hostages, and watch the US cave.

It worked once, why wouldn't it again??

...

Well, they've misread it a tad bit. Trump isn't Carter. ...and this country isn't just coming out of Watergate, and Vietnam. The atmosphere is a bit different.

This calls for a bit of bloody ruthlessness on the part of the US...

Undoubtedly, many of you are going to call me names, say I'm many bad things, when I write the following.

Wouldn't be the first time.

These militias, so called, are a clear and present danger. Find 'em. Kill 'em. Send their heads to the Iranian High Council, or whatever grandious name they call themselves, with a short, but to the point, note--something like so:

"This could, and will be, you if this happens again. Control your dogs, or they'll have new masters very shortly."
Signed: Donald J. Trump. President of the United States.

It's a tactic that's been used before in the Islamic world, with some success.

Yes, it's gruesome. Yes, it's nasty. It's even barbaric. So is this world we live in, in case some haven't noticed.

Or...

We get the F out, and let 'em kill each other off without our getting caught in the middle of it.

That 30th time would have been the charm.

Bruit force is what they see as strength in the Middle East, anything else and you are weak.

I agree.

*shrugs*

Let them call names.

Not like it'd be the first time.

That's how I see it.

Kindness and gentleness are somehow seen as weakness.

OK, fine. Eventually one runs out of cheeks to turn.

Thanks for keeping us updated on the whereabouts.

3 of those C-17s arrived earlier in Spain.
JMQ7+8R Base Naval, Spain Rota.

36.6394495, -6.3408088

Have not seen them leave yet. 1 refueler was nearby "QID" in the Med.

Looks like they're splitting between Rota and Frankfurt since they can't get into Ramstein. RCH663 is currently clinning as he enters UK airspace, so not sure if he'll drop into Frankfurt.

RCH311, 688, 664, and 417 should be the last tonight. We should see another round tomorrow out of Campbell.

Looks like VDR20 went into Greece.

QID536, and QID700 were airborne earlier. QID700 met up with the 325th SOG that was up in the area.

RCH311 just dropped off to the northeast of 688. He should pop up again just west of the UK.

Looks like 417 and 664 will probably join up at least for a bit. If 417 holds to the pattern he'll stop in Bangor.
