scruffLA saidAre these real or staged?
Any day now...........
Norfolk based destroyers ready for Syria strike
Oh - quite real. This is now the 2nd time the redline has been crossed. Today's news implies that the US will finally do something. Unfortunately, the administration has also let it be known today, that it has no intention of trying to bring down the Asad regime. Which leaves us wondering, is the US just going to make some token strike, that will eliminate a few aircraft, but leave everything else essentially the status quo? Time will tell.
and why is it the US responsibility to lead the slap on someone elses hands? this gets old and tired real fast, let Briton, Isreal or Germany take the lead for once since the problem is in their backyard... it has no intention of trying to bring down the Asad regime, well, US must have a stock pile of missiles it needs to get rid of so we can replenish and build some more new advanced ones.....
I see right through this smoke screen
You see this is exactly how (1991) Gulf War I started, Saddam Hussian, didnt remove him then (just playing with him) and had to come back a decade later to do it, more war, more spending....US will be back again in 10 years to remove Asad, keeps the machines goin
