The hardliners in Iran have been chanting “Death to America and death to Israel” for decades.


We've been messing around in their neighborhood for how many decades now?

Wipe Iran out imo

This threat needs to be completely smashed

Yeah!

Because that worked so well in
Afghanistan and Iraq!

WE are dumb Americans, and learn NOTHING from our past mistakes!

The American response will have to be very measured as Iran has a load of defense missiles all ready and waiting since they worked out a deal with Russia. thediplomat.com...
Putin is in Syria at the moment he must have got the memo.

Hope this isn’t true. Not good if it is.

The Iranians don't like us and would prefer us dead. So F it, let our boys do what they do best. It's time to put our big girl panties on and go to work. They truly deserve it now. I hope we have the people and equipment in place to react quickly and severely. Cut the head off, and watch the body wiggle around a bit.
a reply to: Oppositeoftruth

WE've been watching the body wiggle around a bit in Afghanistan and Iraq for how long now?

You volunteering to go do some chopping? Maybe a family member?

Thoughts and prayers for the men/women at that airbase and all over the region.
a reply to: Gandalf77

They signed up for what they are getting. They don't need 'thoughts and prayers'.

What they need is COMPETENT LEADERSHIP.

Something we failed to give them in 2016, and now they suffer for it.

Put that in your 'thoughts and prayers'.


What makes you think I haven't already?
Look, I know what you're saying, but the snip's hitting the fan.
Our warriors don't have the luxury of choosing where they go. They do their job.

With all due respect, I'll keep whoever I want in my thoughts and prayers--including all of the innocent people on both sides that could get caught up in this.

With conflicts, are dog fights in the air common anymore?

Well, kinda hard to do when an F-35 can detect, launch and fly back home while its asset is in air moving towards those targets.

They were long dead before they knew it.

Not with Iran.

Their air force would be like a grasshopper fighting and anvil compared to our's.

some of the astrologers I follow have been saying elevated terrorist activity and threat of nuclear explosions are on the table due to the nature of the conjunction

You would be entirely wrong in that.

There are patterns in the financial markets, they used to be a lot more predictable when there wasn't so much external manipulation. People display patterns too, such as your posting history.

This is a horrible thing happening here, and I feel for the military members as my husband is retired military and was in the gulf war for a brief bit. I didn't need to go to the markets to get proof of that, in fact, my investments were the last thing that crossed my mind.

Reports of no US casualties as of now.

Hopefully it stays that way.
