    Funny and sad at the same time. This is the man who greenlight the assassination:

    The dude literally didn't know the difference between Quds vs Kurds.


    Might as well have a toddler greenlight this attack because a toddler wouldn't have a contextual understanding of the ramifications of such actions just like the guy in office currently.

    Attacks being reported once again.

    looks like the US isn’t done.

    Where are you hearing this?

    EDIT: Beginning to see some confirmation of this from credible sources.

    Basically they are saying "Trust us."


    QUESTION for my republican/right wing people: If Iran sent a missile to the U.S. and killed Hillary Clinton - Would you celebrate or would
    you want to strike back and avenge her and American soil?

    Hillary isn't a terrorist (just a normal murderer). besides that, you nailed the comparison.

    Possibly, although the Shia militias in Iraq supported by Iran may have done as much or more fighting than the Kurds who the US since at least Bush the Elder have doubled crossed over and over. In reality it was the Syrian Army backed by the Russians who did the heaviest fighting. The United States essentially fought for and against ISIS as we kept giving them weapons indirectly by such stupidity as blowing apart Lybya and their huge weapon caches wound up frequently w. ISIS as rich Saudis and others bought them on the black market. We also kept heavily supplying largely mythical moderate Syrian rebels who often defected to ISIS with the weapons we gave them.

    Not really, but aside from the 1% of the military and their families, most folks do enjoy good "shock and awe" videos , breathless news updates on battle tactics and some rouse themselves to put yellow ribbon decals for their bumpers. They feel proud to say; "thank you for your service" but are not too big on paying taxes for rehabilitation and ptsd therapy bills for basically other people's children.

    “Planning” is what military commanders do. The US has plans for nuclear strikes against Iran. Intelligence that there is “planning” going on should not be confused with an attack that is imminent — which is the standard required under international law for actions like this.

    Hmm a writer from the daily wire, best known for his Facebook work, and the new york post, or the 9/11 commission report. Who to believe?
