Mostly likely you are a Russian spy and so are most others on this thread. I figured if you can say something ridiculous, so could I.
The Long arm of Iran is at work. Trump—The Ball is in your court now. Trying to help the Democrats is my guess and their friend Obama. Start an unpopular war and Trump will be voted out of office and Iran will be home free with President Biden/Harris.
Yes, waste of time and lives.
No Saudi client.
*** We have no reason whatsoever to be in Syria. ***
On SDF Twitter thread, it said the target in the convoy was the CIA cars.
Agreed. Iran had best be careful. I don’t think Trump understands or respects the principle of “adequate response.
The conflict is ISLAM v. EVERYONE
No other outcome.
Most likely an attack by our own deep state proxy forces. In other words, planned by our own people and executed by proxies.
That’s what I was thinking. Then realized troubled transgendered unicorns made a lot more sense.
Exactly. ISIS my ass.
Iran proxies. If it is proven, Iran can rethink their nuclear capability.
Where is the Vincens? Time for another mistake.
Trump ordered them out in December. The neocon swampers rebelled. And now, some good American men were wasted or wounded. I say wasted because it was not for any purpose of defending America. Nothing SDF jihadis are doing is good for America.
They should have been out.
I’m beginning to wonder about all these attacks on Bolton on Free Republic. I know there’s a suspition of him being a warmonger but his patriotism cannot be questioned. He blows the doors off the former National security advisors. I suspect some fake people out there.
They seemed to have launched all the shooters theyve groomed locally...,
*** The conflict is ISLAM v. EVERYONE
No other outcome. ***
Simplistic answer. We have no business in Syria. We destroyed Iraq and Libya. And now, just as the Iraqi Parliament is voting on telling the US to get out, the US Embassy & GZ are hit by rockets. What a coincidence.
That is exactly what I was going to type.
I agree with you on this. We never should have been in Syria in the first place and were it not for Obama and McCain supporting the Qatar/Saudi gas pipeline we’d have never got involved.
You know, I get that there is nothing over there that is worth the life of an America soldier, but the knee jerk POLITICAL response of some here is just annoying sometimes. How about some prayers for the safety of those who serve to protect our security, and THEN a discussion about how this tragedy could or should have been prevented? The common person has no idea what the mission they were on was, and how important, or unimportant, it might have been. Sorry, but political response without all the facts of the matter is just as bad here at FR as it is on CNN.
What you said > +1
Eastern Syria? There ain’t nothing out there, straddled by Northern Iraq (e.g. Mosul) and Turkey.
Prayers for US Troops.
