F.U. obamma lamma ding dong ya socialist anti American turd,

Course we need a boogie man to keep the “military industrial complex” moving now don’t ya?
So just sit back as Iranian operatives kill Americans, A-holes.
Within a few weeks after our troops are out of Iraq it will all have been for nought.
Meanwhile, the boy marxist coddles the mullahs.
