Joe Biden voted for every unnecessary war of choice out there.
I totally agree with you. I think republicans and democrats agree that unnecessary wars are terrible for America!!

But not the leadership which has really been run by the military industrial complex since WW2.

The mess was a multi-admin project going back to HW Bush almost 30 years ago. This should be a lessons as to the limitations of foreign policy meddling in a divided country where each admin is limited to 8 years.

This has actually been an area of success for Trump, who has dialed back meddling, but with an emphasis on maintaining a strong partnership with Israel.

If that is the case, how would you explain the wild swings from one admin to another, especially for example, the change from W.Bush to Obama?

Uh what changed exactly? Still plenty of warring going on. Day to day life for most is largely unaffected by who is president.

Uh, we precipitously exited Iraq in 2010 under Obama. If you were not aware of that, you should go do some reading before posting.

I wonder who leaked it...

Two American officials said Israel carried out an attack on an Iranian weapons depot in July that killed two Iranian military commanders. The U.S. officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter with the media.




I can't blame them. Their intel has plenty of info. They felt it was a risk they had to take. Doesn't sound like they killed anybody.

In an interview with a Russian-language TV station on Thursday, Netanyahu indicated the speculation is true.

“I don’t give Iran immunity anywhere,” he said, accusing the Iranians of trying to establish bases “against us everywhere,” including Syria, Lebanon, Yemen and Iraq.

Asked whether that means Israel is operating in Iraq, Netanyahu said: “We act in many arenas against a country that desires to annihilate us. Of course I gave the security forces a free hand and the instruction to do what is needed to thwart these plans of Iran.”



I'm not sure what this has to do with anyone in the U.S.
