Absolutely agree with Tucker, let’s give chickenhawk Lindsey Graham a rifle and drop him over there....might even give him a parachute.

Great article as usual! Ron Paul is more right every day.

It's time to stop. Just stop. Close all the overseas bases, bring all the troops home and close the CIA and the entire military industrial complex. Then make a statement that the US is now a peaceful nation and will not kill any more innocent people. And I just saw a flying pig!

The U.S. is in deep shit because the outpost is not actually in Jordan but in Syria, illegally! The Biden Administration is illegally exercising war against countries that Congress has NOT given permission to do! Maybe it is time for Biden & Blinken to be IMPEACHED!!! They both are Zionists & War mongers!

Careful what you read and hear as they are lying to you. Jordan denies the attack was on its’ soil but rather took place in Syria. And let us not forget that the US military is illegally occupying a part of Syria and stealing its’ oil. Step by step the US is being kicked out of the Middle East and it can’t come soon enough.

With this administration I feel we will lose more of our soldiers. We pray everyday for our military because leadership is lacking.👏🏻👏🏻

I feel so bad for the families who lost their child. Our prayers are with the families.👏🏻❤️

Not since WWII has the US had a clear and defined end state for war that was agreed upon by congress and fully supported by the US citizens. Since that time every US President has bypassed congress to commit US forces to conflicts. US Foreign Policy in the Middle East is and has been non-existent and that means there are NO, NADA, ZIP clear and well defined end states to use to define strategies. Lots of Think Tankers making millions to pontificate, but nothing any “statesman” will risk his political career or hold on power to execute.

The Communist in Vietnam and the Taliban in Afghanistan had well-defined strategies; wait out the “Democratic” Americans and when they are at their weakest, attack and force them out. Putin is now following that same historical lesson in Ukraine. Works every time because our politicians are interested in only one thing: staying in power. Their single-minded focus is with their own image. They are incapable of learning.

Great Post! Esp the focus on overseas bases. Recall, that's what caused Osama Bin Laden to take up arms against the US- our military bases in his country of Saudi Arabia. There is a book from David Vine that focuses on this. The book is titled "Base Nation- How US Military Bases Abroad Harm America and the World." Book says there are over 800 bases scattered throughout the world. Many established in spite of local opposition. https://www.basenation.us/

Somebody needs to smack dear Lindsey and Cornyn and duct-tape their mouths. Lindsey is always for wars he'll never have to fight in. He kept egging everyone on with Afghanistan and IMO vastly lengthened that war. WTaF are we doing over there anyway? Especially since our military is not exactly in the best shape and someone left our guns, large armed vehicles and heliflopters.

That’s a hell of a “drone”. I can understand why Graham is upset. After all the US is the only country who can determine the righteousness of who needs to killed.

If the Americans wish to fight a 'War with Iran,' that would mean steeling themselves for 200+ USD oil per barrel, the Implosion of the current 'Rules Based World Order' & the implosion likewise of the Global Economy. That, as well as SRBMs & IRBMs murdering thousands of active US forces in West Asia overnight, due to Saturation of Air Defenses via Massed Volleys.

If they are 'up for all that,' so be it!

Not the first time that the psychos (fill in neocon here) were willing to have Americans killed to justify escalating US action against a country they want to attack. Graham, Hailey etc are bought & paid for to message for their handlers.

Serving globohomo is evil at this point. In fact smedley butler had their number and the fact the US military has and most likely always was, corporate hitmen. This time for Conoco, neocons and Israel. Bring their asses home to the southern border or resign their mission unless their paychecks and pensions are so holy.

No US interest as in no interest for you, the US citizenry.

Lots of interest for the owners and rulers of your corporatist-capitalist state.
