Mike Pence To West Point Grads: You will fight in a war!

Discussion in 'Politics' started by Green Wizard, May 29, 2019.

  1. To those of you who thought Trump would end overseas wars, that he would drain the swamp, you were lied too. He has increased our military budget to the highest levels ever, filled his cabinet with all manner of swamp creatures like Bolton, Pompeo, and Abrams. And he sent his number two to the West Point graduation ceremony to send a message to our young men and women in uniform...

  5. Trump and Pence are both blatant Neoconservatives, anyone who thinks otherwise is deluded.

  6. To be fair, with Pence, he might be thinking of the war of Armageddon. Dude is one of those crazy evangelicals that thinks Jesus is always coming back to earth next week.

  7. The Lord could return at a moment's notice, and I'm not trying to be funny, Jesus says man will not know the time of his return and to prepare everyday as if he could make his great return right then
     
  8. I don't trust pence, trump or anyone in the govt..
     
  9. Jesus also 'said:' "love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return." Organized Christianity lost Jesus' message long ago

  11. Trump to send an additional 1500 troops to the middle east to fight Iran.

    President Trump has ordered some 1,500 troops to the Gulf region to serve a "mostly protective" purpose for American forces and interests.

    Trump made the announcement to reporters on the White House lawn before boarding Marine One.

    In a Pentagon briefing on Friday, Vice Adm. Michael Gilday, the director of the Joint Staff, would not say where the additional troops would be sent, other than that they would not be heading to Iraq and Syria.

    Some of the forces have already arrived. A defense system designed to track and destroy incoming missiles, called a Patriot battery, is already in the region, staffed with about 600 troops.

    The remaining 900 troops will operate intelligence surveillance radar and drones. A fighter squadron will also be deployed, though no specifics were provided.

    The deployment of additional troops comes with the Pentagon's announcement that attacks on four oil tankers, carried out two weeks ago in the Persian Gulf, were the work of the Iran Revolutionary Guard Corps.

    Gilday said the attackers used limpet mines, a type of mine that is attached to a vessel and then detonated.

    He also blamed a rocket fired at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad earlier this week on an Iranian proxy. Iran supports Shiite militias in Iraq, but the Pentagon did not identify which group had fired the rocket.

    There were no reported injuries in either incident.

    Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan told The Washington Post Thursday that the deployments were about deterrence, "not war."

    Trump withdrew the United States from the 2015 Iran nuclear accord a year ago, and the rhetoric between Tehran and Washington has been increasingly belligerent. Iran recently announced that it would accelerate uranium enrichment if other countries don't help it mitigate economic sanctions imposed by the Trump administration.

  13. Wow..it just keeps getting better
     
  14. It's funny when people call him "far right" because the media told them he is when he's not even particularly right wing. Isn't religious, is fine with gay marriage, his tariff policy is the opposite of the economic thought associated with the right. Off the top of my head the only major policy that I'd call right wing is his border policy.

  15. Not too sure how conservative it is to fuck a porn star raw dog while your wife is pregnant with your soon to be son.

    He knows how to blow that right wing dog whistle, so much so they don't even realize how center left he really is. Neo liberal actually.
     
  16. Trump tax policy is right from the far right

  17. Obama's too.

    Obama's healthcare plan = heritage foundation healthcare plan aka romneycare.

    We haven't had a true progressive left president since FDR. Nothing but neo cons and neo liberals. Trouble is telling them apart.
     
  18. Yep, Regan, Clinton, Bush, Obama, Trump all kinda the same just with different raping
