Yes - just as I would find them "out of line" if they attacked Trump for poisoning the water supply in Flint Michigan or chemical gassing the Native American citizens peacefully protesting at Standing Rock.

But, I'm not a citizen of France or the U.K. so I don't have anything to say about their actions.

As a tax-paying, voting citizen of the United States, I believe I do have a right to speak my disapproval of actions taken in my name and holding me not only accountable but liable for the repayment if the result is WWIII.
Thanks from Sabcat

Fair enough.

I didn't take notes just there were many, many clinton supporters who supported her stance on the russia/syria situation which was still intervention and would have had serious negitive repercussions IMO.

I said what I said.
What we know, is that we launched a lot of cruise missiles.
and
Last time we "took out an airbase" it was back in operation the next day.

Those are the facts.
If you think that "taking out an airbase" should interrupt operations at that base for more than a day, would you say that attack was inept?

TAking out an airbase was not the action being talked about...or started to be talked about.

I have said before - and I will say again - I am not a huge fan or supporter of Secretary Clinton's - she had many POV's that I disagree with. I didn't vote for her in the primary.

But I certainly voted for her as a better choice than the tinpot tyrant wannabe that was elected.
Thanks from RNG
