It's all about who has power half the time. If the president isn't from your party, he has to be wrong.

STOP TAKING THEIR CRAP AND START DEALING IT OUT!


We've been dealing it out over there for 19 years.... This round.

Bless our hearts.

I won't weep for fallen fundamentalist jihadis... But boy does if suck to think about most of my life, we've been there.


That's the problem, we've been there for 19 years. We should have gone in, cleaned house and helped set up a stabilized system. Anything else is a waste of time, money and blood.

As a nation we no longer have the political will to do that. You're talking about more or less rewiring an entire culture, and you know how the SJWs and the Academics who fuel them would react to that one.

latest precision airstrike on Iraqi Medics, not on senior commander


Just announced on FoxNews that tonight's airstrike was not launched or sanctioned by the U.S..

Could it have been Iran attempting to kill Americans or our allies in Iraq?

So you're going to claim that Trump is the only one demonizing other groups? Hardly.


Did I ever claim he was the only one?


Bitter clingers .... deplorables .... the snooty elitist attitudes about the great unwashed in flyover ... the hatred and contempt for those who don't think the way your tribe does is an art form taken to new heights in this country, and the only way Trump is unique is that he formed the discards of the rest into a tribe that actually turned out to be quite large by the time the other groups had purged it from their midst.


I never said that. You did. Maybe that speaks more about how you feel about him and others. Thanks.

My point is : Do you have confirmation it was a medical convoy or are you just taking the militias word.....the Militia that just lost 5 leaders in a attack on a convoy? Sorry if I'm calling into question their veracity. You however, take them at their word.

Reports Ive seen say they had a hard time ID'ing the bodies they were burned so badly.

5 Leaders leading a Medical Convoy......such saints.

I look at the situation as I see it.

Like any good businessman, he saw an untapped market. Time after time while Hollywood gripes about declining US box office, people talk about the viewers the progressive shoehorning has turned off, people who'd go see a good story ... if they made one.

Those are the people we're talking about here.

The so-called elites are so cut off from the rest of the country, they may as well be the 1% and not the ones whose bank accounts reach a magic number.

Good to know that US foreign policy and national security is an untapped market aimed to prop up a declining box office presidency in order to gain viewers at the expense of a realty show presidency under impeachment.

But hey, I love a good story.

Always wondered about this.
Maybe it was about controlling the sale of oil in dollars, who knows.

You may want to have a seat. I know that is shocking news.



As you may have read previously, I don't watch Fox News or any other major network. But finding that on a music site raises red flags for me because the General is a Democrat and if I remember right, was not exactly honest in some of his dealings with previous administrations. As we know, all too well, even top generals can say things that aren't true. I would want to see another account of this before I take it to heart. You know, corroboration? Why? Because it doesn't make sense. What possible benefit would the US have for taking over all of those countries? None. Would it even be possible? No. Does it seem logical that ANYONE in the US government really plan something like that. No, it makes zero sense.

I just thought it was funny that you would find that on that site. It's not without its own credibility problems.

Set up a stable system for people who don't want the "help"?

We put Sadam in power, Gaddafi, Bin Laden, different regimes in Iran, and other countries.

We've put in "democracies".

Israel is the only one that worked.

Every time an election comes up every since I can recall, "war in Iran" has been a drumbeat from the left and Democrats. Every burp, hiccup, and fart in the Middle East that involves the US is seen as somehow going to lead to "war with Iran". It's supposed to scare all of us into voting for the peace-loving, Mullah-ass kissing Democrats who want to just be good little citizens of the world.



Quoting this just for how divorced it is from reality. Jesus, if you really believe stuff like this I don’t blame you for grabbing ankles for Donald Trump every chance you get.


Divorced from reality? How old are you? I can remember crap like this since Reagan was elected. How long have you been following middle eastern politics as they pertain to the US? Or is it just because you hate Trump?

Collateral damage, I don't believe we target hospitals or weddings however we have inadvertently done so.

Sure and every prisoner in Jail is innocent.


No, they aren't, but that's a war crime: hitting/targeting medical convoys.

But if you're cool with that.


MEdical convoys/hospitals are only exempt when they are not used as bases or as avenues of attack under the geneva conventions. If they have proof they are ferrying weapons or soldiers instead of patients or medical supplies they are not protected.

Sounds like we hit the paymaster/Moneyman.


Shibl al-Zaydi reported killed in another American airstrike, per Iraq. Al-Zaydi has served as a financial coordinator between the IRGC-QF and sectarian armed groups in Iraq and assisted in facilitating Iraqi investments on behalf of IRGC-QF designated Commander Qasem Soleimani
