CENTCOM to stop lying about troop numbers in Iraq and Syria . . .

Postby jvquarterback » Fri Mar 31, 2017 12:21 pm

... don't expect the truth though. They won't be giving any numbers at all.

And some of you guys thought Trump would drain the swamp.

I'm not a Trump guy. I didn't vote for him. But you seem to be under this mistaken impression that Trump was going to pull out of the Middle East.

No. I knew he never would. But he did run on draining the swamp in Washington. Everyone seems fine with the fact that he's leaving the swamp in Arlington, Virginia.

Trump repeatedly stated during his campaign that he would destroy ISIS if elected. After his inauguration, Trump signed a memo directing the Pentagon to come up with a plan to defeat ISIS. They were directed to submit their plan in 30 days. That plan is now being implemented.

Exactly how does destroying murderous terrorists interfere with "draining the swamp" in Washington DC? I guess you would have to define what "draining the swamp" means to you.

He could start by getting rid of whoever told him to go back on his word and bomb Assaud without any proof in what was most likely a false flag situation.

You have still not defined what "draining the swamp" means to you - and how engaging in a military action has anything at all with the Washington DC swamp.

I would submit the "proof" was discussed in detail during high level during the 63 hours it took to approve the surgical, precision Tomahawk attack (according to NYT). Hopefully your aware that Trump discussed the evidence, or "proof" during his National Security Council meeting, and then with Jordan's King Abdullah. King Abdullah knows what's going on in Syria. Trump then had a meeting with Def. Sec. Mattis, Sec. of State Tillerson, and Nat. Security Advisor McMaster.

There are pictures of chemical containers at the site of the Tomahawk missile strike in Syria. The same chemical containers the Russians use to hold their chemical weapons - nerve agent.

National Security Advisor McMaster said - "Our intelligence community in cooperation with our friends and partners and allies around the world collaborated to determine with a very high degree of confidence precisely where the location originated. And then, of course, the sorts of chemicals that were used in the attack, that’s – that confidence level has just continued to grow in the hours and days since the attack ..."

Of note, the Pentagon tracked the flight of the plane that dropped the nerve agent bombs. That's how they knew which airbase to strike. They tracked 2 jets from the airbase, they circled around the target, and at the exact time the nerve bombs were dropped, the Syrian jet was overhead, then returned back to base - where the nerve agent was stored in Russian containers. Pure coincidence right?

You can believe it, or not believe it, but, US intelligence has reported they intercepted Syrian radio communications where they are discussing preparation for the Sarin nerve agent attack last week.

Here ya go -
"(CNN)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."

Can we get a chart for the times we are supposed to believe CNN and the times we are not supposed to? :D
