War with Iran?

Recommended Posts

At around 01:30 local time (03:30 UTC) on 20 October 2011, Gaddafi, his army chief Abu-Bakr Yunis Jabr, his security chief Mansour Dhao, and a group of loyalists attempted to escape in a convoy of 75 vehicles.[8][9] A Royal Air Force reconnaissance aircraft spotted the convoy moving at high speed, after NATO forces intercepted a satellite phone call made by Gaddafi.[10]

NATO aircraft then fired on 21 of the vehicles, destroying one. A U.S. Predator drone operated from a base near Las Vegas[9] fired the first missiles at the convoy, hitting its target about 3 kilometres (2 mi) west of Sirte. Moments later, French Air Force Rafale fighter jets continued the bombing.[11] The NATO bombing immobilized much of the convoy and killed dozens of loyalist fighters. Following the first strike, the convoy split into several groups, with a subsequent strike destroying another 11 vehicles.[12] 

 

Yes, the US military was involved in the death of Gaddafi. You guys should know this but choose not to.

So, you're cool with the SOS blatantly lying about something that could have, still might get us into another major conflict in the middle East?

I'm not cool with you guys rewriting history in your posts to push your stupid ass agenda. Let's start there instead of creating a conversation that never was.

11 US troops injured in Iran missile strikes on Iraqi bases: report

Although, this sounds more like the media making something out of not much.  Sounds more like they were showing signs of suffering a concussion a week later.  

“About a week after the attack some service members were STILL experiencing some symptoms of concussion,” the official said, adding: “We only got wind of this in the last 24 hours.”

You left out a key word there.

Being near missle attacks from Iran is a normal thing that has happened on an almost daily basis to US troops. It's been going on for decades.

Trump's been president for decades?

Damn. I do better than that trying to meet chicks at the bar.

 

 

 

Sometimes at least.

I'm 1 for 1 at picking up bar chicks. I am never trying again because it's only downhill from there. I'll stick to funerals and Tank's barbecues from now on.
