False. That is just the basis upon which more outrageous government spending and action was justified to the the foolish American people. Those Toyotas they were driving were not submersible. Their AK's cannot shoot over oceans. America's number one security threat is in the Pentagon.

Right. Because terrorists have no idea how to take an airplane. Oh, wait...

Many if not most veterans, generals, intelligence experts, and other government officials say the real threat is living in the White House.

Yes, from the people that want us to stay in these wars forever, sorry, but a lot of these swamp rats are the threat.

The biggest threat to global peace are the terrorists in Washington. Under the guise of Democrats and Republicans, they are responsible for the deaths of millions over the decades.

If you really want to put an end to terror, include the US governments on the list. 

And let me clarify, I mean governments - not the good people of the US

What a load of crock. I wouldn’t even say government, I would say just the Hawks that think we should stay in these places indefinitely.

America "rarely broke the back of those insurgencies as expected."

Could that possibly be because the US was the insurgency?

"Russia has made it clear it will willingly provide arms and diplomatic support for brutal governments." That is, of course, something the US would never do.

The end of one era and the beginning of another.

All three comments above really made me laugh.

America's number one security threat is in the Pentagon.

Yeah Norman Real threat those generals in the Pentagon.

@Numan.

Why for taking the handcuffs off our military to hunt down these jihadist terror scum and make them pay?

If you look at Trumps address to the nation in contrast to Obama's address to nation when Osama Bin Laden was taken down. You will notice some very stark differences. Obama has not one branch of military flag behind him. Not one!

Trump was surrounded in the situation room by Robert O'Brien, Trump's national security adviser; Mark Esper, the secretary of defense; Gen. Mark A. Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Brig. Gen. Marcus Evans, the Joint Staff deputy director for special operations. You think these men think Trump is the real threat?

@TARA TAN KITAOKA

the world war just started.

We should be more worried about a Civil war at home with Democrats and the wack impeachment hearings.

That at the end day accomplish nothing but wasting tax payers dollars.

IS fighters seized huge swathes of Iraq and Syria, many in the U.S. government still viewed such groups as America's preeminent national security threat

False. That is just the basis upon which more outrageous government spending and action was justified to the the foolish American people. Those Toyotas they were driving were not submersible. Their AK's cannot shoot over oceans. America's number one security threat is in the Pentagon.
