They set up the disposable launchers in residential and retail/commercial areas. Once they launch, they are long gone, and there is nothing to strike.

Yup. My first assessment exactly. It’s a trap.

“Why did we invade Iraq again?”

Clinton holdover George Tenet advised Iraq had WMD. (Slam-Dunk).

We found a few binary artillary shells...

...plus a stockpile of Uranium “yellowcake” ore.

The ore was air-shipped to Canada for processing. The Iranian Shi’ites haven’t subsumed Iraq for a new Caliphate—yet

That thinking is why we're 0-5 since WW2. Fire the counters,go in with engineers and level whats left and drop a round in there from time to time so it's never rebuilt.
There's a name for people that make moral judgements on strategic decisions ------- losers.

Harrassment, as you stated.

Unless they thought Susan B. Anthony Day was Sunday—instead of yesterday.

I’m sitting here in Saigon right now reflecting on the Vietnam war.

Johnson and the CIA really pisses me off.

Investigation? They ought to be doing some serious aerial reconnaissance.

The dems and those turncoat republicans emboldened iran and/or their surrogates to strike.

Doesn’t matter what cowardly un American congrezz says the President can do Constitutionally what ever is necessary to protect our troops and the USA.

IMPEACH THIS CONGRESS!

I’ve often heard LBJ described as being a master politician but it doesn’t mean that he was any kind of military leader, and I am quite certain that none of the current (D) candidates for POTUS are any kind of military leaders either.

Rockets hit US coalition base in Baghdad, no casualties

Rockets hit a U.S.-led military coalition’s Baghdad headquarters early on Sunday but caused no casualties, a coalition spokesman said, in the latest attack to target U.S. facilities in Iraq.

Washington has blamed Iran-backed paramilitary groups for increasingly regular rocketing and shelling of bases hosting U.S. forces in Iraq and of the area around the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.

I now realize that JFK was so moved by the NYT burning monk photo that he was backing off on Vietnam.

He had fired Dulles as head of the CIA for many reasons including the Bay of Pigs fiasco,and was questioning many of their missions.

JFK was assassinated 20 days after Diem’s assassination in November 1963. They brought Dulles back to be on the Warren Commission coverup.

Johnson then faked the Gulf of Tonkin incident to beat Goldwater in the 64 election which Johnson escalated into the Vietnam War.

I blame Johnson and Dulles, another Deep State coup.
