  1. So this was done to thwart an imminent attack only to cause massive imminent attacks? Lol ok wtf

    • @Rberg1105 …are you unwilling or unable to understand what I’m saying ?

    • Anouk129 I understand the point you’re trying to make. It’s just an incredibly stupid point that you’re only using because you can’t think of actual arguments.

    • @Rberg1105 …omg, why don’t you just get lost ? No need to further TRY to have a debate with you. But that is really no surprise, at all !! Have a nice life

      @Rberg1105 Republicans will say everyone is a treat just to keep that gravy train rolling for the military industrial complex

    Remember when invading Iraq was considered a great strategic idea

      @Flying Boer exactly

    • mmmmm but the yellow cake was so delicious and decorated with criminals and pirates.

      remember the invasion of kuwait and the 700 oil wells lit on fire blacking out the sun? those were the days. 🙂

      and Hillary was all about it when it came to invading Iraq. its seems almost like she is president with the way its going. i guess it goes to show that we are all just throwing pebbles in a river of time and cant change the flow.

      @Dave Schultz Hahha Former President Candidate… my behind.. How about Arrogant Loud mouth is more like it

    • @brenda mcdonall *”…..the US cannot be trusted.”*

      Not as long as we have a psychopathic lying malignant vindictive self-serving narcissist for a so-called president.

  5. Immediate self protective measures should be routine, but medium long term, we need objectives, please?

    • Stop Iranian insurgency in to Iraq. That’s been the goal, and problem, since 2003.

    • @Dave Schultz Bits, pieces and chunks, we don’t have a clear objective except whack a mole? This what happened, ever since the Korean War Congress abdicated war declaration authority since Korea.

    • @Mike Marder , The Sunnis in Iraq are DEATHLY afraid of Iranian Shiites. The Iraq Kurds and Sunnis will not far well with out us unfortunately. Saddam was a Sunni and protected them.

  6. HIS RIGHT. am afraid of living my house and i live in DUBAI.

    • Why can you please tell me how you feel. Because I’m torn between both sides.

      Unfortunately you are probably one among many at the moment. I send you good thoughts and hope you get through this safely.

    So what is Trump going to do when NATO tells Trump: you are on your own. Or, go get help from Russia or your beloved friend Kim!

  8. DELAYING THE ARREST OF INEPT INCOMPETENT FAKE PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL CAUSE MORE PROBLEM TO THE UNITED STATE BUT TO THE WHOLE WORLD !

  9. Biggus Dickus | January 3, 2020 at 3:37 PM | Reply

    Trump sends more troops to the Middle East during an election year and amidst his impeachment. Interesting.

  10. Our thoughts and prayers go out to
    NYPD and all everywhere. Be kind be vigilant.

    • Adil Choudhury | January 3, 2020 at 6:59 PM | Reply

      Thats a great strategy

    • Then pray that mayor gets voted out. NYPD don’t like him at all.

    • De Blasio is an alarmist communist.

    • Average x
      Thoughts & prayers ugh 🙄 This can mean the end of all of us ffs!
      Time good americans finally make the sacrifice, flood the streets, & STAY THERE until they FORCE the @GOP to put country 1st!

      Please! While there’s something left to save! ENOUGH!

  11. Here we go again! This has echo’s of the Vietnam War & Gulf Wars & Afghanistan!

    • I don’t think so. Not when we have a lunatic in the WH with codes to the nations nukes & has a “shoot first & tell Congress later” agenda.

    • na its more like vietnam + gulf war + afghanistan at the same time haha
      you guys traded al qaida for isis and isis for iran

      the best part you guys made iran into the thing it is know

      while stealing your hard earned money with his top 1% friends

    • Me
      How is that possible, I have been told Obama made them get rid of all their Nukes

    • @Nobody Cares the same obama that gave them millions of dollars

    • Gnirol Namlerf | January 3, 2020 at 9:29 PM | Reply

      ​@Nobody Cares Oh, come now. Let’s imagine your spouse insists that you stop smoking (or for that matter, any other bad habit your spouse thinks you have that will endanger you and everyone around you). Your spouse says, “Separate beds until you stop,” and enlists all his/her relatives to encourage you to stop. You make a deal with him/her to stop smoking. You throw all the cigarettes in the house in the garbage. Balance returns to the household. Then, for completely other reasons, your spouse divorces you and puts a tremendous financial pinch on your lifestyle, what with the alimony, child support and the need to find another residence. This creates a lot of stress and removes the check on your smoking. You think you wouldn’t start smoking again? It is possible that someone stops doing something and then starts doing it again when the situation changes. Pres. Trump, for reasons completely unrelated to Iran (he irrationally hates anything to do with his antithesis, Obama), changed the situation, which unsurprisingly precipitated a change of policy on the Iranian side.

  14. so the truth comes out as to why the trumps moved out of new york

  15. This seems like it was done to distract from the Impeachment trial by trump.well now we are heading to war.happy new year America.

    • Shortly after trump came into office I was having a conversation with an immigrant garage owner. He was a trump supporter. Not wanting to argue with him, I only said “I’m afraid he is going to get us into a war ” . Looks like I was right.

    • @Gary Norton your not talking about fake foxnews media are ya?

      Totally agree

    This is war propaganda for those of you to young to remember the build up to the Iraq war, Afghanistan war etc. Don’t fall for it.

    • Somatically Incorrect so it’s not something to really take note of?

    • You have a lot older people who is also eating this up and agreeing with what this current administration is doing. Honestly it doesn’t matter who is in office democrats or Republicans they all have the same agenda and that’s continuation of war.

    • It’s like we took a time machine back to Jan/Feb. 2003.

    • @Laughing Gas it goes further back then 2003. Let’s not forget Vietnam and the other wars after that. Let’s think about all the money that was spent on all these wars, what great things it could have really done if we used it for positive things. The advancement of quality life for everyone.

    Since Donnie Jr is such an expert marksman,send him over as part of a platoon on the frontlines…..

    • @Cronus Your right…I say let all the trumpturds to the front lines including trump and his family

    • Donnie Jr. no doubt has “bone spurs” like his daddy – Cadette Bone Spurs

    • Well since you’re such a smart mouth maybe we should send you to talk to them. You know so much more than everybody else you should be able to speak freely and change the world. Not

    Terrorist attacks on civilians in the Western world:
    Shia: none.
    Sunni: each and every terrorist attack! Like; NY, Paris, London, Barcelona, etc etc etc… WTF! Time to let go of the Saudi oil umbilical. Really. Time. To. Let. Go!

    • Skärgårds Doktorn We’re doing that already.. And Western liberals are doing everything in their power to stop the US from its recent technological breakthroughs on energy, which will bring us back to being dependent on foreign Russian and Middle eastern oil. Just like the 100% EU allies who hypocritically denounce THe US for our energy record self reliant supplying abilities, at same time they’re working shady deals with Putin and e terrorist/monarchs/communists/dictators on the planet for theirs

  19. Who knew that giving command to the greatest military force in history to a moron would hurt us.

  20. Trump Logic: “Let’s distract everybody by having a war we start and say we did it to prevent a war! Right!?? Anyone!? ANYONE!?!”
    Pence: Ummm, yes Mr. President
