You writing this from your mom's basement you fucking loser? Go get a life or a girlfriend or something you worthless neocon faggot monkey sucking piece of dogshit. Everyone is tough on the internet, keyboard warrior fag. It occurs to me that a dumb neocon fag tough guy like you has no life whatsoever beyond foxnews, the NRA, YouTube and online forums.


Damn! Who pissed in your cheerios?

According to my admittedly failing memory, I have NEVER seen such an amazingly bad taste and understanding post.

I am all for discussion, but your response is not in the vein of discussion, it is simply a personal attack.

And, as such, in my opinion has little place here.

Para, if I am treading on your territory, sorry.

Who are these friends you speak of? Do you have assurances they're all the kind of friends who won't later use those (presumably) US-supplied weapons against us or our allies? Where do they stand on murder and suicide bombings in "defense" of their faith? Would they like to wipe Israel off the face of the earth, perchance? Would some of them shoot our own soldiers in the back when they become disillusioned with us?

Admittedly I don't know much about the various factions fighting Assad, but "the enemy of my enemy" strategy isn't automatically a good one.

Maybe we should paint them pink? I saw a cab this morning painted pink. On the door it said "Pink Cabs...Cabs That Care". Surely if a Toyota Prius can care...a Tomahawk can too.


Back to substantive things...

Notice how those hangars have a nice centered hole in them? Somebody took the time to do the job right!

Another person that's offended by everything

Prominent Editor Mocked For Saying ‘Tomahawk Missiles’ Are Offensive to Native Americans

Mother Jones magazine’s Editor in Chief has accused the “tomahawk” missiles that were fired at Syrian airbase last week of cultural appropriation that “must enrage a lot of Native Americans”.

Clara Jefferey a prominent editor at the liberal magazine tweeted over the weekend that the name “tomahawk” given to missiles is cultural appropriation of Native American culture.

“That the missiles are called tomahawks must enrage a lot of Native Americans [sic],” she tweeted.

Her ill-thought-out tweet invited almost universal mockery on Twitter, some pointing out the actual history behind the name. “The war tomahawk was actually a British invention,” tweeted Sean Gallagher.


“Only those looking for a reason to be pissed off. It’s tribute not mockery,” wrote National Review Senior Editor Jonah Goldberg. “Oh my gawd I thought this was a joke… then i saw your Twitter page and realized you are actually serious. Seek help,” said one Twitter user.

Another user noted: “This take brought to you by the people who handed Trump the presidency.”

Other people have pointed that Native American community has far bigger concerns than how the military names their missiles. “I think generally they have actual things to be enraged about…” wrote user called “Wholesome Bare”.

Tim Skellett seconded: “They mostly have far bigger things to worry about. Like heavy-metals contamination in potable water in Navajo Nation.”

So now CBS has figured out that the Syrians were making and using chlorine-based chemical 'barrel bombs' while Russia, the co-guarantor of O's chemical weapons deal with Assad, had to have known about it and deliberately obstructed further inquiries in the UN.

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/wh...as-chemical-weapons/

I can hear Dan Rather and the Obamaites now - "but chlorine wasn't on the schedule of substances!!!" No, but it sure was on Assad's TOE. Here's hoping that Trump's seen enough of Putin to not take any more "lick and a promise" diplomacy at face value.

Thanks for posting this. I was having a stressful day and this offered a much appreciated chuckle. There simply is no limits to the lunacy, is there.

Ross, Porter Commanding Officers Receive Phone Calls from President Trump

On April 9, the commanding officers of Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyers USS Ross (DDG 71) and USS Porter (DDG 78) received phone calls from President Donald J. Trump.

The president called to thank the commanding officers, Cmdr. Russell Caldwell and Cmdr. Andria Slough, and their crews for their professionalism and quick response to the tasking to conduct a cruise missile strike against Shayrat airfield in western Syria April 7. This strike was in response to the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime.

Ross, commanded by Cmdr. Russell Caldwell, forward-deployed to Rota, Spain, departed on its fifth forward-deployed patrol April 3 and is conducting routine patrols in the U.S. 6th Fleet area of operations in support of U.S. national security interests in Europe.


Caldwell took command of Ross Nov. 12, 2015, and is scheduled to be relieved by the current executive officer, Cmdr. Brian Gallo, in a ceremony onboard the ship April 11, in port Larnaca, Cyprus.

"The success of this mission hinged upon our Sailors' excellent training, technical knowledge and dedication to their work," Caldwell said. "It was a distinct honor to hear firsthand from our commander in chief that these operations had a direct impact in support of his national objectives."

USS Porter, commanded by Cmdr. Andria Slough, forward-deployed to Rota, Spain, departed on its third forward-deployed patrol Nov. 30, and is conducting routine patrols in the U.S. 6th Fleet area of operations in support of U.S. national security interests in Europe.

"In general, the President was impressed with Porter's precision and lethality. It was obvious he was extremely pleased with our performance and is glad we're out here patrolling in U.S. 6th Fleet," Slough said.

Slough took command of Porter Jan. 28, 2016. In February Porter went to the Black Sea and participated in the Romanian led exercise Sea Shield. In March, Porter participated in the multilateral Allied Maritime Command anti-submarine, anti-surface warfare Exercise Dynamic Manta 2017. Also in March, Porter was awarded the 2016 Atlantic Fleet "Bloodhound" award, signifying the best ship in the fleet at anti-submarine warfare.

The US military and intelligence community has intercepted communications featuring Syrian military and chemical experts talking about preparations for the sarin attack in Idlib last week, a senior US official tells CNN

The intercepts were part of an immediate review of all intelligence in the hours after the attack to confirm responsibility for the use of chemical weapons in an attack in northwestern Syria, which killed at least 89 people. US officials have said that there is "no doubt" that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is responsible for the attack.

The US did not know prior to the attack it was going to happen, the official emphasized. The US scoops up such a large volume of communications intercepts in areas like Syria and Iraq, the material often is not processed unless there is a particular event that requires analysts to go back and look for supporting intelligence material.

So far there are no intelligence intercepts that have been found directly confirming that Russian military or intelligence officials communicated about the attack. The official said the likelihood is the Russians are more careful in their communications to avoid being intercepted.

The Russian and Syrian governments have both denied involvement in the chemical attack.

Once was more than enough and you'll find few around here who will agree with the position taken in that video.

Syria retains chemical weapons and has dispersed its warplanes in recent days, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said at a news conference Friday.

The aircraft dispersal suggests possible concerns about further U.S. missile strikes after President Trump ordered strikes on a Syrian air base following a chemical weapons attack in a rebel-held town in Idlib province on April 4 that killed 89 people.

Scientists from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons found "incontrovertible" evidence that the victims were exposed to Sarin or a Sarin-like substance after samples from 10 victims were analyzed.

Mattis would not say how much chemical weaponry Syria has. “The amount of it I don’t want to get into it right now,” he said. “We don’t reveal some of that detail because we don’t want to reveal how we’re finding out. But the bottom line is that I can say authoritatively that they have retained some.”

He said having the weapons is a violation of a United Nations Security Council resolution, and Syria would be “well advised” not to use chemical weapons again.

In Jerusalem, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel welcomed the new Trump administration.

"This is a welcome change, a strategic change of American leadership and policy," Netanyahu said in a brief appearance with Mattis.

a welcome change indeed
