    1. @Yasiel Pacheco And let us be clear. Biden won because he wasn’t trump. All politicians lie, but trump would lie when he didn’t have too.

    2. @Big Earl do i need to mention all the pressure he put on iran, north korea and china? he was feared and untouchable. The citizens voted Trump out because they thought he was gonna start a war. Just like Biden is about to start

    3. @Big Earl 59 tomahawk missiles and Assads allies left him alone. They knew what would happen if they retaliated. Iran is pressuring Biden cuz they know he has NO BALLS!!!!!

    1. @Edward Green Trump was doing pretty good at stopping this crap. Now here we go again. Biden was so mad when Trump brought troops out. 2 months later…..

    2. President Trump made the United states energy independent..and the old dude got in and with the stroke of a pen undid it..this administration will be Americas downfall..bring back President Trump!!! He won!!!!

    3. @Corey Aldrich And pulling out of the Paris Accord is going to get Florida out from under the water???? We are in this mess with global warming because nearly every industrial country has contributed to the mess that we are in.

    1. @Kong Lee no I’m talking about solemani…Iran attacked the U.S. embassy in Baghdad in retaliation and started revving up weapons again calling for war

    2. Iraq issued a warrant for Trump in the killing of their Leader. Trump started this bs. He should’ve been turned over to Iraq.

    3. As anti-US sentiment grows in Iraq, and the country moves closer to Iran, now would be a good time for Joe Biden to reassess its presence there instead of targeting the Shi’ite militias making life difficult for the Americans.
      Tuesday saw another rocket attack in Iraq against a US military base. A total of 10 rockets were launched at the Ain al-Asad facility, where American and coalition forces are stationed. As in a previous attack at Irbil last month, one allied civilian contractor was killed.
      The last time this happened, Joe Biden’s administration responded with an airstrike against Iranian linked militias active in Syria, blaming Tehran for the situation as the two countries haggle over potential talks concerning their nuclear deal.
      If it transpires that the fatality is an American civilian, the president may be tempted to reach for the trigger again, claiming it is yet another “defensive” measure to deter Iranian aggression.
      But that claim is disingenuous. While it has become a repeated theme over the past year for Shi’ite militias to attack US bases with rockets, one ought to remember that this is their country. It’s not America’s.
      The West constantly feeds us the one-sided notion that attacks on American soldiers in Iraq are an act of aggression and a crime against the peace, and not, in fact, the other way round. The US has no real business being in Iraq, and never did. The Iraqi government doesn’t want the Americans there – but doesn’t seem to have a choice – and bar the Kurds, neither does its population at large. Being majority Shi’ite, they largely have a natural affinity with neighbouring Iran.

    1. Here we go again with the foolish people making comments pretending they know much of anything about this stuff.

    2. @Z Rhoads clearly you didn’t hear Trump killed their supreme military leader Qasem Soleimani on 3 January 2020 , they retaliated 27 missiles at USA base, now Biden is fighting back.

  1. The rockets probably wouldn’t have hit our troops if we weren’t in a country we have no buissnes being in. Bring them home and we won’t have to worry about this.

    1. @Elsa Bean nice assumption on your part, you know what they say about assuming things right… i am not a trump supporter never have been but im also not suffering from trump derangement syndrome and believe whatever mainstream media overloods tell me to believe.. you should try it sometime you might not be so uninformed/misinformed…

    2. @Elsa Bean also if you want to prove those links i provided as wrong i welcome you to prove them wrong.. LOL just because MSNBC and CNN doesnt cover a story doesnt make it any less true.. but i get it, i was just like you about 3 years ago, then i got out of the echo chamber..

    3. @black bird not as long as the american people keep voting in establishment politicians while turning a blind eye to ivory tower elites that control everything. Especially if they also control the narrative. Not to mention keeping us at each others throats (united we stand, divided we fall).

    4. @Quincy Dread Lmao the only people with TDS are his followers who are so obsessed with and blinded by him that they can most certainly be called “deranged.” Just look at the Capitol insurrectionists—they were about as deranged as one can get in the clinical interpretation of the word. And I guess you didn’t read my other comment about the troops that trump did bring home and his purpose for doing so? If not, you can go find it, because I’m not repeating myself.

    5. never were
      O tried, Trump tried (after almost doubling them) B needs to go mop this sh*t up

    1. @Alan Peters our president doesn’t know where he is half the time. Your comment will likely age as well as a gallon of milk.

    2. @Wiggle my noodles Jr far-left-fascists are about the same as Jumbo peas or Jumbo Shrimp – they ain’t no suchertang!

  2. In the event of a coming war, if possible you should prepare the battle area, and manufacturing consent is a key element. Those who vote for these endless wars should always have to have a loved one on the front lines, meaning if you vote for war you should have some skin in the game…

    1. @The change I’m seeking So dropping bombs in other countries doesn’t count as starting conflicts? Wow you’re very brainwashed to the point of being nothing more than a NPC.

    2. @robert williams starting ”wars” as you said… go back an read what you wrote. Obama did not start any wars, I stand behind that statement.

    3. @The change I’m seeking Wow another NPC thinking they’re intelligent because they can play with words. Its called symantec’s. No one who is an actual adult will base their argument based on nothing more than symantec’s. It makes you look like the fool that you are. Dropping bombs on people from other countries is a act of war, it is a armed conflict. Just because both countries decide not to outright call it for what it is doesn’t diminish what it actually is. The middle eastern country won’t call it war because it doesn’t want to allow the US congress to go into full war mode with a vote. The USA won’t call it a war because it gives us more leeway with what we can get away with. Hence why I first called it a armed conflict. But fools like you will eat up propaganda and play symantec’s.

  3. Title is misleading … hosting US LED coalition troops . NOT US troops. God I hate the news sometimes.

    1. qbanz: Saying U.S. led coalition troops is misleading, just a way for Americans to make it look like it’s a global effort, not another American Empire wealth and oil grab. All sane and informed people know attacking Iraq was a mistake, unless you like the idea of grabbing their wealth and oil.

    2. As anti-US sentiment grows in Iraq, and the country moves closer to Iran, now would be a good time for Joe Biden to reassess its presence there instead of targeting the Shi’ite militias making life difficult for the Americans.

    3. @mustar pendekar I agree the problem is that the user war mongers! And they have the I’ll show you Trump attitude!

  4. As long as it’s just the kids of working class slobs fighting wars, nothing will change.
    Ruling Class: “Just low life useless eaters in the military”. “All my children are in the Ivy League”.

  5. If we push green energy, we can tell every ****hole country in the world with an oil rig to go **** themselves

    1. @hmmcinerney It’s deeper than that a lot of it has to do with Eastern Europe and Russia but we wouldn’t have to worry about Oil elsewhere if 1. We could drill here
      2. We didn’t back our dollar with Oil
      #bringbackgoldstandard

  6. You can’t say this will lead to war if we’ve been at war for 20 years. We’re already in war, you’ve just been reminded. It’s a really tricky situation, because we don’t want to be there, but we also can’t just give up on our alliance and betray the kurds. Well I mean we easily could, it would just be immoral.
