    US conducts airstrike on weapons storage site as troops pull out of Syria

    US conducts airstrike on weapons storage site as troops pull out of Syria - CNNPolitics

    Two US Air Force F-15 jets conducted an airstrike targeting an American munitions storage bunker at a US base in Syria Wednesday in order to prevent the munitions and other equipment from falling into the hands of armed groups, two US defense officials told CNN.


    This is what a well planned operation looks like!

    Republicans: a few hundred million in solar power subsidies lost!? The horror! What waste!

    Also Republicans: let's use a 10 million dollar bomb to blow up a billion dollars worth of our other bombs. .

    Any military commander will tell you that when you're destroying your own equipment, facilities, bases, it means you've lost it. For USA it is a pathetic conclusion to the conflict in Syria.



    The last helicopters evacuating Siagon, South Vietnam 1975


    An Air America helicopter crew member helps evacuees up a ladder on the roof of 18 Gia Long Street on April 29, 1975, shortly before the city fell to advancing North Vietnamese troops.





    Evacuating USA friendly Vietnamese in the fall of Saigon 1975


    John J. Valdez and Douglas Potratz who were Marine Security Guards at the U.S. Embassy in Saigon share a photo of Valdez on the last helicopter evacuating from the U.S. Embassy in Saigon on April 30, 1975.







    Marine Security Guards stand at the U.S. Embassy iron gates in Saigon on April 30, 1975, during the fall of Saigon. The population of USA supporters are attempting to get out of the city as the North Vietnamese move in.



    At least in the defeat of South Vietnam USA tried its best to get its allied supporters out of the city of Saigon and the collapsing country of South Vietnam. Trump has left our allies the Kurds to Assad, Putin, Erdogan. So that makes four against one.

    Yes, bombing your own facilities is well-planned. I hope you're joking.

    There was no mention of the cost of the bombs, or the value of the munitions that were destroyed.

    Could you post the specific information you have on their value?

    I was asking for confirmation of the costs that were mentioned.

    I take it you have nothing along those lines.

    If it involves stealing, killing, or destroying*, Republicans are all for it.
