CVN 70 bitchez! And while you are there, CVN, take out all those Somali pirate villages. Never understood why the U.S. is pussyfooting around with freakin pirates anyway or does the umbrella of political correctness now cover scum?

The pirates have as much to do with the US being in the Indian Ocean theater as A/Q has to do with the US being in Pakistan. Think about it

I have, if there is one place we should be, its in Paki, AQ cannot be allowed to take the nukes in Paki, and they will.

AQ means the stinking toilet ,, get with the program ,, AQ is a made up model by the CIA..

AQ did this ..AQ did that ,, they have programed your brain with pavlovian dog sift

We should remove all troops from these places and all ships and the size of the armed forces reduced significantly immediately.

Exactly HPD. And stranger still that Al CIAda gets even a mention here.

As do runaway/secret/unstable nukes. Because the most famous incident of run-away nukes happened in the US recently. In fact, no one knows what really happened then either.

I appreciate the many vets here, clearly knowledgable about the vast US Ironclad fleet, but I'll tell you this, the meek will inherit the earth, david vs. goliath.... all allegorical tales. When I see the US armed forces (seen a US foot soldier in Iraq or Afghanistan? Loaded with crap, LOADED. Jack be nimble? Hardly!) I see Goliaths everywhere.

A soft underbelly is no match for one full of fire. There is nothing the US military is fighting for. How can there be fire int he belly?

They really should all coome home. Boys with toys.

We should send people like you over to talk to them. You obviously have an understanding of these people. Maybe even some common ground. you could have tea and some nice goat cheese. In the end when all the talking is done, they will cut your head off.

How about starting with the irritant of that region,,,,, Israel.

The USA has ZERO reason to have ever been in that part of the World except a few Israeli's living in the USA with NO BALLS TO DEFEND THAT AREA THEMSELVES, butttttt wait THEY need some assistance to protect their homeland.

With that group owning most of the Media and Financial world, they get their home country protected by the USA which is basically held captive to their cash. 

Why the HELL IS THE USA THERE?  Please explain... and unless everyone has some REALLY EXCEPTIONAL REASONING.... it's only because US Jewish folk buy that protection with their B.S. influence.  It's not even because they spend the money to buy the protection. It's because they own the media and financial world.  

I say every Jewish US Citizen with relatives in Israel, under the age of 59 actually go back and fight to protect it.

Why is the US involved?  Why should Americans die to protect Israel?  If the USA must, then send Jewish Americans with relatives in Israel to fight that battle. 

It's NOT OUR PROBLEM,,, at least it shouldn't be.

They're the ones that PISSED OVER THE ENTIRE REGION 1000s of years ago. 

One adage makes the most sense- "WHERE THERE IS SMOKE THERE IS FIRE"

Why does the US have to cover their asses/their mistakes for things done to people 1000s of years to present time?

When they were pissing off the globe, the USA was a far distant 'undiscovered' by caucasian land. Even though the inuit people had been living there for 1000's of years, but Hey Columbus gets the credit. LOL Oh yeah, he discovered it. Only the USA Govt is dumb enough to host/have a Holiday for that Ponzi discoverer of far away lands.

The only more Criminal Act facing US Citizens is what the Bankers have done to the US economy and society.

Oh wait, Most of them are 'Just Doing Gods Work' and yep most are _______ too!

 

 

Fair is Fair, let them pay for and fight their OWN WARS. The USA has protected their asses long enough. Let the chips fall where they may. Goodluck.

They'll defend, protect, and promote their own inner-circle, they're brave just as long as they don't actually have to do physical battle. They just get the other religious groups kids to do their fighting for them over some Friggin sandbox.

 

Blacks/Hispanics/Whites/Asians/ you name it, they're fighting Jewish caused battles. OVER AND OVER. Kinda pisses me off.

 

It sure seems that 99% of the World has issues with them.

Hmmmmmmm wonder why? They're such 'givers'. LOL

Good, All Religions are basically the Greatest World Scourge ever invented by man.

Most people need a good Lie/Con to hang onto just to get through the day.

 

I hope they do what you suggest.  See if you can put in for it to be done by this weekend, that way the World is closer to healing itself, but only after they destroy/breakdown/tear apart the TBTF Banks.

Some in The Navy remember what the Israelis did to the USS Liberty. No one in the US Navy wants to defend Israel.

Dead In The Water - The Sinking of the USS Liberty

"During the Six-Day War, Israel attacked and nearly sank the USS Liberty belonging to its closest ally, the USA. Thirty-four American servicemen were killed in the two-hour assault by Israeli warplanes and torpedo boats. Israel claimed that the whole affair had been a tragic accident based on mistaken identification of the ship. The American government accepted the explanation. For more than 30 years many people have disbelieved the official explanation but have been unable to rebut it convincingly. Now, Dead in the Water uses startling new evidence to reveal the truth behind the seemingly inexplicable attack. The film combines dramatic reconstruction of the events, with new access to former officers in the US and Israeli armed forces and intelligence services who have decided to give their own version of events. Interviews include President Lyndon Johnson's Secretary of Defence Robert McNamara, former head of the Israeli navy Admiral Shlomo Errell and members of the USS Liberty crew."
