Most American veterans say the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq were 'not worth fighting,' as the US flexes its military muscles at Iran

The US government's so-called war on terror is nearly two decades old, and strong majorities of US veterans and the general public do not approve of its biggest efforts — the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — according to a new poll from Pew Research Center.

The survey found 64% of veterans said Iraq wasn't worth fighting, along with 58% who said the same about Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, 62% of US adults said Iraq wasn't worth it, along with 59% who expressed the same view on Afghanistan.

Most veterans (52%) and US adults (58%) also said the US military campaign in Syria has not been worth it.

The US invaded Afghanistan in October 2001 following the terror attacks on September 11, 2001. Almost 19 years later, the US military is still present in the country and American service members are still dying there.

Indeed, though the US declared an end to combat operations in Afghanistan in 2014, the fight there is ongoing.

1. The only problem is the refusal to say Islam is at War with us

ISIS, Al Qaeda, Hzb’allah, Bozo Haram are just the symptoms

The Disease is Islam

If we aren’t allowed to destroy Islam then we need to isolate them to the other side of the World

They are a murdering Deathcult Masquerading as a religion

3. "we need to isolate them to the other side of the World "



THAT'S WHERE THEY ARE

But our Drones (cowards killing machines) are circling overhead, sometimes bombing wedding parties and funerals.

If only Chinese drones were circling over a few 'Murikan cities! That might cause a few fat lazy 'Murikans to understand what it's like

9/11 was an inside job

12. Silly rabbit we are not at war with Islam

President Trump is selling the home of Islam $110 billion worth of weapons.


The Trump Administration provides Islamic nations with more foreign aid assistance than it does to nations with citizens practicing any other world religion.
Top Five Recipients
1) Iraq ($5.3 billion)
2) Afghanistan ($5.1 billion)
3) Israel ($3.1 billion)
4) Egypt ($1.2 billion)
5) Jordan ($1.2 billion)

2. they should have done what General Bone Spurs did

stay home and fight STD's

“It’s amazing, I can’t even believe it. I’ve been so lucky in terms of that whole world, it is a dangerous world out there. It’s like Vietnam, sort of. It is my personal Vietnam. I feel like a great and very brave solider,” - Donald J.Trump, STD Warrior / Combat Vet



Also appearing on Stern’s show in 1993, Trump bragged about his promiscuous lifestyle while single and stated that men who didn’t go to Vietnam didn’t need to feel guilty because dating during the AIDS epidemic in the ’80s was also dangerous.

“You know, if you’re young, and in this era, and if you have any guilt about not having gone to Vietnam, we have our own Vietnam — it’s called the dating game,” Trump said to Stern in a 1993 interview. “Dating is like being in Vietnam. You’re the equivalent of a soldier going over to Vietnam.”... https://people.com/politics/trump-boasted-of-avoiding-stds-while-dating-vaginas-are-landmines-it-was-my-personal-vietnam/

Those Vets should vote Tulsi 2020

Because she is the ONLY ONE That promises to end this absurd, illegal and immoral "Regime Change" nonsense

6. How a 4-Hour Battle Between Russian Mercenaries and U.S. Commandos Unfolded in Syria



American military officials repeatedly warned about the growing mass of troops. But Russian military officials said they had no control over the fighters assembling near the river — even though American surveillance equipment monitoring radio transmissions had revealed the ground force was speaking in Russian

The documents described the fighters as a “pro-regime force,” loyal to President Bashar al-Assad of Syria. It included some Syrian government soldiers and militias, but American military and intelligence officials have said a majority were private Russian paramilitary mercenaries — and most likely a part of the Wagner Group, a company often used by the Kremlin to carry out objectives that officials do not want to be connected to the Russian government.
“The Russian high command in Syria assured us it was not their people,” Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told senators in testimony last month. He said he directed Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, “for the force, then, to be annihilated.”

“And it was.”

They got SPANKED!

7. Classic combined arms operation

Russian military denied they were their people. So then the skies opened up and and the US military made it rain.

The disproportionate losses of both men and material were epic. It was not a limited to a spanking, it was a bloodbath and the kind of brushback that was long overdue.

8. The Russian contractors walked into the cross-hairs and overwhelming lethal force was unleashed.

And that is exactly how it is supposed to happen.

11. Perfect.

As they say, "if you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactical planning sucks."
