Let’s see...another dead terrorist leader in the world? Good job, good job, Mr. President. Doing exactly what I elected you to do!

Watching all the liberal heads from the Democratic Party, CNN, MSNBC and Hollywood explode on Twitter and on national television...priceless!

Let’s pray to Allah the CIA has and maintains the current location of the new next-in-charge and if something happens to US Forces, diplomats or property he too turns into a black greasy spot.

Out of curiosity, if the dead terrorist was in fact an agent of a foreign country and did coordinate an attack on the US embassy, is this not considered an act of war?


I'm not sure how the left can be up in arms about a precision response to an act of war?

It looks like there have been a number of other strikes since then. What should we call this??

1) Night of the long knives ( https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zon...again-in-syria )

2) Preventive Maintenance

3)??

We could call it a rotation of stock.

You always need good working inventory that has been tested..

Yup. Much more effective than pulling 'em, inspection, refub, decommissioning....
Nah. Just shoot the thing.

3) Corrective Actions - Re-Drawing “red lines” in the sand with the blood of tyrants, despots and terrorists one Hellfire at a time.

Note to others: we have aerospace factories just pumping them out faster than we can load them up and use them. The possibilities are limitless! The Reaper Drone invisible!

If the missile struck at the very moment the spokesman stated who the replacement "was"... That would be just amazing.

LTG Jerry Boykin was just on Fox News Live w/Shannon Bream. He’s still sharp as a tack and his assessment was spot on pointing out the diplomatic failure of the last admin.

Only wish Shannon hadn’t had to cut him off for time constraints. He was on a roll.

Iran is making threats of retaliation. They should remember that Iran fought Sadaam and Iraq for 8 years to a standstill. We took Iraq in 8 days. If Iran starts something, the surviving mullahs will be living in France off their Swiss bank accounts.

If Trump goes after Iran, He'll use air power. Drones, cruise missiles, regular air strikes on their infrastructure. Drop bridges, take out power plants, headquarters, airports, any naval vessels, etc. Don't need ground troops to do that. He can do it really fast. Won't affect the election; it'll be old news by November.

No nation building. Just let the Iranians sit amongest the rubble and decide how to feed themselves.

Don’t need to destroy a country to decapitate its leaders.

Iraq and the Rumsfeld doctrine should be a recent example of what not to do.

There are probably some phone lines being burned up right now as well between their trading "partners."

Ass't Deputy Multi-Mullah for Oil Bucks: "So... will you stand with us against the Great Satan?"
Deputy Chinese Minister for Pipeline Stuff: "Well... maybe not so much right now..."
Mullah: "What d'ya mean not so much?!? We send you a FOURTH of our frickin' oil!"
China: "Yeah, but your fourth is only a piddly-assed 6% of our total imports. And besides, we have this trade agreement thing on the table we're kinda gettin' snuggly with, so... Maybe you should sit back quietly on your heels for a bit & just let Hollywood freak out on your behalf, m'kay?"
