Only the best people!!!
Had the operation actually taken place, it would have rained death upon thousands of civilians.
I was so incredibly relieved when I saw the headline about a State Department official being picked as new UN Ambassador. And then I read further. God help us, part infinity.
That was a very important mistake in its own right, but also just part of a broader pattern.
I vaguely remember reading, early on in the occupation, a news article about Iraqi police officers striking and protesting because of low salaries. I was totally stupefied by that article and its implications. As I recall, the story mostly focused on the effects of the police protests.While those effects were of course negative, the bigger and more important story - largely left unsaid - was the level of American obliviousness required for the problem and the protests to even exist in the first place.
I mean, it's understandable that under typical circumstances, the government of a fractious and economically underdeveloped country might have difficulty paying police officers enough to prevent them from deserting, extorting bribes, etc. But having the ENTIRE FREAKING US DEFENSE BUDGET at your disposal should make that problem a lot more manageable, unless your leaders are clueless.
I'm just going to attribute your uninformed opinion on this particular topic to extreme naiveté.
That is what happens when a f**** moron is elected president....
“So often, the president would say here’s what I want to do and here’s how I want to do it and I would have to say to him, Mr. President I understand what you want to do but you can’t do it that way. It violates the law.”
— Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, quoted by the Houston Chronicle.
The first thing I got out of this, is WTF is he doing glad handing church officials..... Then shit!!!
War, what is it good for? Absolutely nothin'!
Those are the 2 Corinthians he's spoken so highly of.
That was the original working title for "War and Peace"
The 2 Corinthians are into construction in Babylonia. George Can'tstandya is the Architect.
I like Warren Peace's other works better...
I did some research and you are right - the AC-130's were only armed with flower and confetti dropping technology in the 1980's. I'm sorry.
They're good for July 4 firework displays.
They weren't AC-130s, which have guns in both quantity and size. These were used in Panama and Afghanistan, among other places.
For this, they used EC-130s and MC-130s (I think) which mostly carry troops and sometimes fuel (they were to act as KC-130s for the helos), and very often psy-ops and EW capabilities.
The aircraft at the landing zone were transports, but they were going to have AC-130's circling over the movement of the hostages.
And if you know what these stripes mean, then you know what else was in store for the city:
Lemme guess. Lollipops & glitter?
No wonder he's quitting and why the mood is so gloom in the WH:
Kelly is the latest high-ranking White House official known to provide information for Mueller's investigation, though his interview marks a departure of sorts since Kelly didn't join the White House until July 2017. Most of the dozens of other interviews have been with people who were associated with the Trump campaign, were part of the transition or served in the early part of the administration.
The Mueller questions to Kelly centered on a narrow set of issues in the investigation of potential obstruction of justice, chiefly Kelly's recollection of an episode that took place after new reporting emerged about how the President had tried to fire Mueller. The President was angry at then-White House counsel Don McGahn about what had been reported by The New York Times. McGahn had refused to publicly deny the reporting. The special counsel wanted to try to corroborate McGahn's version of events.
Isn't foreground guy a derivative of the A-6 Prowler?
I know my C-130. I've done a few take offs in those. Never landed in one though.
Yeah, I saw that later. Thought you were referring to the insertion package only.
Those aren't C-130s. Don't confuse my post with someone else's.
Looks like it. And it ain't the ECM version (EA-6B). The other looks like maybe an A-7 parked (wings folded).
The New York prosecutors. Are not amused with Cohen plea for leniency. They are recommending
"A substantial term of imprisonment"
Trump could be implicated with collusion along with him. (Meeja speculation!?)
Just coming out now.
