“So far, no Democrat in Congress has voiced a public objection.” hahahahahaha… yeah, because they’re all war-mongering Republicans just like King Donald the Rich.

On Mar. 14th of this year, it was announced that King Donald the Rich was unleashing the CIA and the Pentagon in his war on “ISIS”. It was reported that he was going to allow them to make calls and drop bombs without his approval in 6 nations: Yemen, Somalia, Iraq, Syria, Libya and Afghanistan.
Effectively, this frees up the military to target whomever they wish, regardless of the potential of civilian casualties, because now our glorious leader has sufficient plausible deniability.
“The Trump administration is moving ahead with plans to make it easier for the CIA and the military to target terrorists with drone strikes, even if it means tolerating more civilian casualties, U.S. officials told NBC News…
That is part of a broad policy shift underway, U.S. officials say, to grant the CIA and the military more autonomy to target and kill al Qaeda and ISIS militants without presidential sign-off in countries such as Yemen, Somalia, Iraq, Syria, Libya and Afghanistan.” NBC Mar. 14th
By claiming “some of the rules of the Obama administration got in the way of good strikes“, the military is becoming a cartoonish parody of itself. Nothing got in the way of President Drones Alot’s Hellfire missile foreign policy initiative.
What kind of Dr. Strangelove characters do we have in the CIA and military who could possibly think Obama’s wild west bombing policy was too restrictive? The fucker authorized the bombing of a 16-year-old American citizen because he just happened to be the son of another American citizen Obama bombed a year before that. What did they CIA want to do? Bomb their baby-sitter?
Like a starving dog let off the chain to a bacon cheeseburger, the CIA and the Pentagon wasted no time picking a target and wasting some more civilians. But hey… don’t worry Trumpsters. The Donald cant get any stank on him for this one. He’s washed his hands of the decision making process…
“U.S. forces struck an al Qaeda meeting in Syria, killing several suspected terrorists, and are investigating reports that civilians were killed or injured in a nearby mosque, military officials told NBC News on Thursday night.
The officials made the comments after the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a nonpartisan group based in Britain that catalogs military actions in Syria, said at least 42 people were killed in an airstrike on a mosque in the rebel-held village of al-Jinnah” NBC Mar. 17th
“Nearby”? It was 50 feet from the reported “target” the military admitted they hit that night. Not only that, but the mosque was actually part of the compound they attacked.
“But a senior U.S. military official told NBC News that while there was a mosque about 50 feet from the U.S. target… The official wouldn’t rule out the possibility that the mosque may have been struck or blown up later by someone else.” NBC Mar. 17th
The official also wouldn’t rule out the possibility that space aliens blew the thing up because Elvis’ ghost hated them for their freedom.
“But Bilal Abdul Kareem, a New York-born filmmaker covering the Syrian war, claimed the mosque was actually part of the same complex U.S. targeted… “You can see the destruction, so it’s not clear exactly how it’s possible that one part was hit, the other parts wasn’t them,” Kareem said in the video. “It’s not clear and we wish we could get some answers from the government.” Daily News, Mar. 17th
What is clear is The Donald has been adequately separated from the slaughter. He has plausible deniability. In other words, he’s outsourced his job as Commander in Chief to some cragly old Pentagon war-monger and a CIA asset of our “national interests”
So hey… don’t fret it. 40 or so more dead civilians who were guilty of nothing more than than worshiping God? Not a problem for Comb-over Donald the Slick. He was Tweeting about Arnold at the time. You know, doing the important stuff.
When presented with this opportunity for America’s left to stand up and do what they are supposed to do, oppose endless wars and if not that, at least opposed a pile of dead civilians worshiping in a house of God, the Dems collectively said…. ” ”
When Rachel “Kill the Damn Commies” Maddow (the new leader of the progressive movement mind you) was asked about this incident she replied:
“Oh but RUSSIA!!!!!!! LOOK OVER THERE!!!!! Over THEEEEEERE!!!!!” Rachel “Mad McCarthyite” Maddow
She then hopped in a limo and sped off to some expense store to spend some of the $30,000 she made for last night’s episode on MSNBC.
And if you don’t like me mixing in humor with such depressing and shocking news… sorry… but the shit just writes itself these days, doesn’t it.
