Even English speakers can't decode something like this.

We're sending bombers to the middle east.

After Trump invite, Iran commander says: No talks with US
Quote:
The Trump administration has not offered specific details of the threat allegedly presented by Iran that prompted the U.S. to dispatch the aircraft carrier and B-52 bombers to the Mideast.

The B-52 bombers arrived at an American air base in Qatar, the U.S. Air Force acknowledged Friday. Images released by the U.S. Air Force’s Central Command show B-52H Stratofortress bombers arriving at Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar on Thursday night.

No increased Iran threat in Syria or Iraq, top British officer says, contradicting US

Deputy commander of anti-Isis coalition rebuts White House justification for sending troops


https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/201 ... ance-of-us

Quote:
“No – there’s been no increased threat from Iranian-backed forces in Iraq and Syria,” Ghika said in a videolink briefing from Baghdad to the Pentagon. “We’re aware of that presence, clearly. And we monitor them along with a whole range of others because that’s the environment we’re in. We are monitoring the Shia militia groups. I think you’re referring to carefully and if the threat level seems to go up then we’ll raise our force protection measures accordingly.”

On Tuesday night, US Central Command – whose area of operations covers the Middle East and Afghanistan – put out a statement refuting Ghika’s comments.

“Recent comments from OIR’s deputy commander run counter to the identified credible threats available to intelligence from US and allies regarding Iranian-backed forces in the region,” it said.

“US Central Command, in coordination with OIR, has increased the force posture level for all service members assigned to OIR in Iraq and Syria. As a result, OIR is now at a high level of alert as we continue to closely monitor credible and possibly imminent threats to US forces in Iraq.”

The rebuke was particularly striking as it implied that Ghika was unaware of the state of alert of his own troops. The remarkable comments heightened concerns that fabricated or exaggerated intelligence may be being used by administration hawks led by the national security adviser, John Bolton, to further the case for war against Iran, in a manner reminiscent of the buildup to the Iraq invasion.

Just think of the unimaginable damage a war with Iran will do to America around the world. We have to get rid of these Republicans through any means necessary at this point. 2020 is too late.

At what point does all this war just become too much? Like we have vets killing themselves, thousands more with PTSD, thousands dead, etc...at what point do these wars become unpopular enough that enough pushback happens to stop it? The troops have the power to just be like "Nah, we're not fighting that one" but I don't know if they realize it, or if enough of them think that way to make any difference. A war with Iran would make the Iraq War look inexpensive. I'm also afraid they are going to ramp up a war with Venezuela. Bolsonero or someone could be the "lead" on that if we wanted to get crazy.
