What has that to do with the accusatory comments about drones??


What did YOUR comment have to do with anything?  In the REAL world, facts matter.


It was factual Yep, just as mine was.  and shows that the troops without drones did not just arrive after last January. No one suggested it was.  Just another one of your straw arguments to incite disagreement where none exists. O.K. I'm all for agreement. I see nothing to lay on President Trump in this - is that the agreement or has the straw all of a sudden hardened?

 

And as to, "WAKE UP" - we now have armed drones in Niger. Yep.  trumps State Department finally did it's job....cost 4 Americans their lives though.  His incompetence and "I'm doing in my way" `tude is costly. Seen now, there ya go firming up that straw. Circumstances dictated action and our government and the Niger government saw it and took the action. Seems reasonable. Previously the Niger government would not approve the armed drones. And "previously" goes back past last January.

yeah, but that would mean we dump the sauds and ally with Iran.
So it begins.

We should NEVER ask our brave troops to die for something that is not vitally important to AMERICA. Doing otherwise has NEVER WORKED.

 

We tried in Korea. How's that working out for us and the rest of the World?

 

We tried in Vietnam, and all we did was lose good American jobs to the VietCong vets.

 

We tried in Iraq and Afghanistan and again, how's that working out for us?

 

WWII WAS in "America's Interest", so WE FOUGHT AND WE WON. By inlarge, that worked out GREAT - except now we're the only country with an active Nazi party, and they've pretty much taken over the GOP, which only shows what happens when we lose focus on our objective- NO MORE NAZIS.

 

Now Republicans want us to send our brave troops to die for IDEAS that have no perminant home and have zero chance of taking over and enslaving ourt Nation.

 

We need to fight Wahabbi Sunni and related Islamic racist ideology with a better idea, not more Troops.


I agree with your basic concept - until you get down to the usual GOP and NAZI nonsense. This concept that we agree is and has been faulty is bipartisan.
