    Sending MORE troops?. Thought donald was bringing them all back home.

    • @MysticMarble so, what is Trump doing, exactly, that would lose him the election?

    • @Fortitudine Vincimus pfft! The Democrats can’t even follow through with an impeachment, and you want one as president.

    • @Prasen Sonawane our education system is already handled by the US government…and you want them to handle healthcare?
      Russia interferes. That’s what they do. Trump’s actual policies towards Russia are much stronger than previous administrations.
      Policies are what matters, not gossip.

    • @Prasen Sonawane the ONLY country in the middle east that has EVER been stable is Israel.
      Obama’s attempt at middle east stability was to give Iran nuclear weapons capability.

    • @Felix Romero Trump’s policies against China, Iran and even Russia are much stronger than previous administrations.
      The MSM don’t want you to know WHY our economy is so strong. They lie, and simply say that it isn’t. That’s the reason they discourage their viewers from actually researching a topic.

    Sometimes I wonder about CNN, interviewing another journalist 1000km away from actual place of incident. I am in Australia and could have stated the same obvious stuff. How about interviewing me about the bush fires in Eastern Australia, I am only 2500km away

  4. War profiteers see the dollar signs $$$$$$$$

    • Yes, And the las Vegas MASSACRE was committed by paddock an asset recruited from Lockheed Martin, Bill Nye the mechanical engineer and Global warming fraud is also from Lockheed Martin

    • @Von Dutch

      Global warming fraud???

    • @hodaka1000

    • Imagine not having any profiteers at all and being defenseless

  5. So we do this in response to a military contractor being killed in Iraq, but when Saudi Arabia military member murders soldiers on a US base we do nothing????

    • If Hillary was in charge this would have ended like Benghazi

      @andrew lee Mohummed piss be upon him mullah Mohammed Allah mullah arkbar.👈🤣🤣😂🤣 🥓😋

    • soft Trump

    • @Extra Truth News the US military doesn’t reveal the names of US contractors killed overseas, so I don’t think you know what race the guy was.
      Plus, that strike wasn’t just a retaliation for that one death.
      CNN is responsible for closing a lot of minds.

    • NO. We do this in response to a terrorist attack by the #1 sponsor of terrorism, Iran.
      The Saudi airman was a lone gunman who hated America. He was also pissed because his instructor gave him the nickname, ‘porn-stash’ because of his porn-like mustache.

  6. Thank you for that report from Turkey with information we already knew.

  7. If there are Americans still in that embassy I hope they have enough food and water to get by. That’s a lot of mayhem.. I’d be panicking

    • They do and are trained for this. The best part is that the ones surviving in the embassy are Marines.

    • If Hillary was in charge this would have ended like Benghazi

    • U have nothing worried about I think 100 US Marines can handle that whole country.

    • @Kiger Redi good thing Hillary wasn’t in charge, she would have waited to see if the protesters were really serious about killing embassy staff before thinking about doing something.

    • That’s America you talk about, they don’t rely on hope especially from your kind, they all ready killed over 30 of mullah follower bastards for killing an American instructor and may more amputated, trump all ready send warning to iraqi government to clear the area or else.

  8. I think they might be getting tired of being occupied by a foreign power I like to think we would do the same if not worse if someone invaded our country.

    • @Billy Smith Glad we have a random american to tell us how Iraqis have lived our lives. They hear talking points online and spread them as fact. None of these people have stepped foot in Iraq or any middle eastern country and want to preach what they say as if it is gospel. Morons.

      @Billy Smith your right. It would be pandemonium shutting off most of the world’s oil supplies. Wouldn’t devastate the U.S but half the world would suffer and starve. The only way to keep it from happening is a force tha that they know will crush them if they do start fighting.

      @Nicholas A Its there goal in life. Spread Islam. Kill the infidel. No different than a 1000 yrs ago.

  10. Let’s just LEAVE!🇺🇸 Let’s spare our brave soldiers to those who appreciate our being there.

    • @Liza Tanzawa you must be a child to not understand why and how an embassy works 😑 however you’ve never had blood on your hands because of marines like us.

    • adam Shortnacy | January 1, 2020 at 9:12 PM | Reply

      @Muhammad abdallah said One thing for sure. You people don’t fear death. And frankly that is kinda scary. Men who don’t scare it is the kind of man that’ll try to take everyone else with him.

    • Romero R Finally a competent human being haha

  11. To me this all sounds like a plan to keep the US over there. To attack Iraq and Syria and kill 25 people rather than directly attack Iran and then instantly send troops to Iraq rather than pull back as Iraqis demand. Sounds planned to me

    • @Ethan Allen On what basis are you calling me a terrorist supporter?

    • @Felix Romero Personally and as a Syrian, Putin has shown much more loyalty to us than the US ever did and ever will, and yet the US feels entitled to our oil (To quote the president: left the troops ‘only for the oil’) not to mention all the crimes against humanity that have been committed on Syrians in the past 10 years, which we have not seen during the past 50 years where Russia was in alliance with Syria. To put it simply, Russia has aided us through the hellish decade by offering VISAs such as student visas and work visas, funded our infrastructure, been one of our few trade partners and overall made the lives of Syrians less of a hell hole. The US, on the other hand, has contributed to this scene by increasing sanctions and pressuring the EU to apply sanctions on Syria, restricting VISAs, funding ISIS and Al Qaeda to quote the foreign minister ‘in the interest of Israel’ and overall, really just contributed to a mess that it doesn’t plan on cleaning.
