October 11, 2019

Tweet, Cave, Repeat“…No wars=War Industry parasites jobless….Without $5 billion US taxpayer dollars over 23 years, US couldn’t have achieved “regime change” in Ukraine in 2014.…”The ONLY thing the US military is absolutely forbidden to do, is to defend the actual borders of the United States.” (commenter TG)

10/11/19, “Trump Brings Troops Back Home To Saudi Arabia,” Moon of Alabama

“Monday: Want to bring back US forces engaged in endless wars: Trump

“We want to bring our troops back home. It”s been many many years. It”s been decades, in many cases. We want to bring our troops back home. I got elected on that. If you go back and look at our speeches, I would say we want to bring our troops back home from these endless wars, Trump told reporters at the White House on Monday.

“Pentagon: Since May [2019], U.S. forces have increased in Middle East by ~14,000: statement. There are currently more than 60,000 U.S. troops deployed to various countries and aboard warships.”

Dan Lamothe @DanLamothe – 17:50 UTC · Oct 11, 2019

“Pentagon just announced the deployment of two more fighter squadrons, one air expeditionary wing, two Patriot batteries and one THAAD unit to Saudi Arabia just now, moments before briefing with senior officials.”

None of which is able to defend Saudi Arabia against another drone or cruise-missile attack.

The troops should be reminded that deployments in Saudi Arabia can end in unfriendly ways.”

Added: June 25, 1996, in Saudi Arabia, 19 US airmen killed, 500 wounded:

“On this day in 1996, a tanker truck loaded with 25,000 pounds of explosives rips through the U.S. Air Force military housing complex Khobar Towers in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, killing 19 U.S. airmen and wounding nearly 500 others.

The terrorist attack that blew off much of the eight-story Building 131, leaving a crater 50 feet wide and 16 feet deep, was the deadliest attack against U.S. forces since the 1983 bombing of a Marine barracks in Beirut that left 241 dead.”

“None of which is able to defend Saudi Arabia against another drone or cruise-missile attack.”

Well, yes and no. For now these forces don’t have the ability to intercept the kind of slow and low-flying cheap drones that recently hit the Saudi Oil facility. But they do have the ability to stomp hard on anyone launching them. Sometimes defense is offensive deterrence. Although that depends on our forces having some sort of clue as to what they are doing, which is currently a dangerous assumption…

Pity that the United States military does not have the mission of actually defending our country from the ongoing invasion over the southern border. Anyone else find it funny, that we can blow up countries on the other side of the world for no apparent good reason, we can commit to defending the borders of hostile extremist totalitarian foreign states, but the ONLY thing the US military is absolutely forbidden to do, is to defend the actual borders of the United States? Yes I know it’s racist to think this way, you’ll have to forgive me, I’m off my meds.
