Meanwhile...

"The time for talk ended last night," Haley told the UN Security Council. "We are prepared to sustain this pressure, if the Syrian regime is foolish enough to test our will".

Mission Accomplished - indeed.

Thank God the Russians are adults or we could be vaporized by now.

Trump Has Proven Himself To Be A Psychopathic Liar. His Presidency Is Finished.

Trump is over and done with. The next idiot will be even worse. War remains on the horizon.

Yeah I'm thanking them for

Yeah I'm thanking them for not blowing those ships out of the water that were clearly attacking another sovereign nation without any authority. Because if they actually did what they could legally do, there would be a full blown world war going on. And the psychopaths and children that rule the west would be screaming bloody murder and blowing everything up. As all spoiled little children would do.

You see Bruce, America is not exceptional, other than exceptionally corrupt and an exceptional bully around the globe, that doesn't even have to wait for the truth, and is a perfect example of might makes right.

Some day, we are going to step in it, and it will be long overdue.

Additionally, there is the crazed neoconservative ideology of US world hegemony. The interests of Russia and China are in the way of US hegemony. Therefore, these two countries are defined as “threats.” Russia and China are not threats because they intend to attack the US, which neither has shown any indication of doing. They are threats because they are in opposition to US unilateralism which overrides their sovereignty. In other words, to be clear, the US cannot tolerate any country that has an independent foreign or economic policy.

That Russia and China have independent policies is the reason that they are “threats.”

It would be a mistake to conclude that diplomacy has prevailed and common sense has returned to Washington. Nothing could be further from the truth. The issue is not resolved. War remains on the horizon.

Anonymous: The answer to

Anonymous: The answer to your question is no. We did not learn it from Korea or Viet Nan. The we are about stopping Communisms advance but they won. Then it became about fighting terrorists in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan. It is a game we have been playing with the Russians since the end of WW II and it is all about continuing support of the military industrial complex in both countries. As I said in another post, we cannot afford peace because tens of thousands of people would be thrown out of work and on the dole. It is the same with the education system. It doesn't work either but we keep throwing money at it because if we recognized our children are getting their education from the media and the internet and stopped sending them to the Progressive indoctrination centers thousands of teachers would be thrown out of work and millions of families would lose their baby sitters.

Doesn't anyone ever learn ?

Doesn't anyone ever learn ?
Doesn't appear to be so given it is unclear just what the mission is and where it fits in the scheme of things.
If anyone knows let DC know .
There is different purposes in the posted responses.

Sorry pmconusa, what I meant

Sorry pmconusa, what I meant was to refer to when Bush splayed out a massive "Mission Accomplished" banner and we spend the next decade and a half losing soldiers lives there.

You misread what Bush meant

You misread what Bush meant by his message. It was we were successful in keeping the charade going.

And neither of you understand

And neither of you understand the difference between a ship returning home from deployment having accomplished the mission it was assigned, and the status of a larger ongoing war.

That's because you don't

That's because you don't realize what the real mission was.

Forgive me, Admiral pmcon,

Forgive me, Admiral pmcon, for not having the files on ship deployments.

Oh, wait. I know; it's the same as every military action; to boost work at defense plants.

Right?

I suppose we got in the habit with WWII.

No we got the habit in the cold war when the military industrial complex discovered they could have their cake and eat it too so long as they could bamboozle the American people into believe their was a threat to our safety under every rock.

Same way we get bamboozled

Same way we get bamboozled about crime, health scares, etc. So the law enforcement and medical industry keeps the dollars coming by the truckload.

You know, a variation on the flies cause garbage axiom.

Now your getting it, except

Now your getting it, except it isn't law enforcement, but law making. Law enforcement is becoming non-existent and those who try are being sued and fired.
