    So was going to Iraq, based on absolutely nothing. So was Obama's 1200 drone strikes without congressional approval, we can go make a big list, But I think the discussion is pointless.

    AFAIK, the State Department provided imminent and specific threats for the required targets. I don't agree with it, and killing American children should get you impeached...but here we are. We can't just keep turning a blind eye to it, especially as it gets worse and worse.

    If the outcome of the Trump presidency is that Congress reclaims their role in our government, then maybe all the Trump BS was worth it.

    I'm at work so haven't been monitoring the media. The public should be outraged but my guess is the press will smother it because of JTs reaction or lack thereof yesterday.

    Iran Air Flight 655 - Wikipedia

    (I'm guessing many of you retards don't even know about this)

    This is why wars aren't so great.

    Cool. That'll be very comforting to the people here that lost their family members. I'll pass the message along.

    Look at this idiotic, sanctimonious bullshit. I was responding to a flippant take on the latest tragedy, pointing out the ridiculousness of making light of it considering both sides have now done the same horrible mistake - anyone with a basic level of reading comprehension would understand this.

    The best part is the wingnut retard who initially posted the meme then 'liking' your post. That is genuinely hilarious.

    No. As per usual you're attempting to distract from a problem at hand with your ridiculous whataboutism digging up from 30 years ago like you're too cool for school. You're super progressive and hate America, we all get it.
