    The U.S.Military took out the Iraqi forces that have been defeating ISIS in Iraq against the wishes of the Iraqi prime minister Adil Abdul Mahdi. It's time for the USA to leave Iraq if they cannot tell the difference between good and bad guys.

    Simply put, Iraqis wants us out of their country. They've been occupied by the US for 3 decades. When the US lets the UN peacekeepers in along with their Chinese support troops, we'll be in the same position, and we'll be (and for many, already are) considered the terrorists.

      Copperhead, agreed about getting out of Iraq but it might be too late for that. One thing I can say for Saddam Hussein when he was running the country he kept it all stabilized. But when Bush Jr. kicked in their door in 2003 he stirred up the biggest hornets' nest. That was all about getting their oil anyway and the Bush family last time I checked is still in the oil business. If foreign troops are allowed into the US they will be considered invaders and will be targeted. Those blue helmets will make some great targets.

      I think porky kim is just trying to mentally manipulate the U.S by its threats.

        Joe, I think Trump might be too distracted with the Mideast to really pay attention to porky. The NKs firing a missile or two into the sea will be nothing compared to what the Iranians are about to do. Porky can go pound sand regardless.

      His self, thanks for that link. So now porky is making threats thinking he can get some food aid from the UN. All he’s gonna do is give it to his army and his people still starve to death. Gotta take care of your power base aka the army so you can stay in power.

      Joe, that's one speech I hoped I would never hear but I'm afraid we will anyway.

    Joe, I think the Iranians will really lash out at us now. We have had them backed in a corner with all the sanctions we put on them. They’ve been facing a lot of internal unrest at home so maybe this is just what they need to distract the people from all their economic troubles and rally behind the regime. Sounds plausible to me. And i doubt if Russia or China do anything to hold back the Iranians.

    Joe Williams · 5 months ago
    Yep. This will be U.S. Aircraft from bases, aircraft carriers. missles from destoyers. et. Attacking. What concerns me is the sleeper cells over here.

      Charles Yearwood · 5 months ago
      Joe,agreed about the sleeper cells. Don’t know how many or where they’re located. I think we’ll find out within the next day or so. Another concern I have are those Russian and Chinese naval vessels still drilling with the Iranian navy. They might also get a piece of the action.
