I think it's very important that we do *not* do this.

Staff (US) at Irbil leaving, too.

The German and Dutch Armies have stopped training Iraqi soldiers in response to US concerns.

I'm not at all looking forward to it. I hope we find a way to turn it around.

I'm not saying pull it off.

I'm saying "try it."

If he orders a nuclear strike (Which I'm sure Bolton has mentioned), he would really be putting himself in 25th Amendment territory.

Oh I think it's a terrible idea, but if he's gonna try it, let's just see what happens.

CENTCOM Statement on recent comments from OIR's Deputy Commander

U.S. Central Command Public Affairs

Google BookmarkFacebookTwitterAddThis10Share



PRINT | E-MAIL


MacDill AFB, Fl., May 14, 2019 Recent comments from OIR's Deputy Commander run counter to the identified credible threats available to intelligence from U.S. and allies regarding Iranian backed forces in the region. U.S. Central Command, in coordination with Operation Inherent Resolve, has increased the force posture level for all service members assigned to OIR in Iraq and Syria. As a result, OIR is now at a high level of alert as we continue to closely monitor credible and possibly imminent threats to U.S. forces in Iraq.



- Capt. Bill Urban, USN, lead spokesman U.S. Central Command


ahh yes - the ole contradicting our allies - even the ones we share intel with. that's always a fun one

Nobody knows what’s going on, I’d wager it’s that way all the way up to “Big Army”, nobody has a clue.

There is an unholy alliance between Bolton and Netanyahu, and we need to think about this carefully.

US application for influence of cherubic equines...denied.

Sure. That's why we haven't been to war since WWII.

My friend.

What country are you living in?

This is Trump's America. ***** are cool, Congress is powerless, Democrats still think Republicans would be willing to do bipartisan work after Trump leaves, we're putting women in prison for a century and apparently going to war with Iran just to make Netanyahu & KSA happy, etc.

It is its own unique hellscape.

I'd be happier if we just put an effort into doing anything

invading and just hanging around waiting for innocent people to tie up and murder after they've been released is stupid (unless you're VP and own the company being paid for this war)

lets just nuke some folks and install our own government and get it over with if we're going to do it

If you want to invade Iran, you need to be talking to China and India, not Russia.

In the UK, every other paragraph says "2003" and they're not going to let the US forget about it. It's unlikely they will be 100% vested.

But even if they were, if you're talking "invasion," you only stand a chance of holding onto some important coastal cities, plus Tehran. It would be very expensive.

Have you heard anybody anywhere talking about an invasion?
