RIP servicemen.

@blacklable Should have been home already. Get it done.

I agree.

Why did Trump lie about ISIS being defeated?

Time for US servicemen to go home to their families.

No point in dying in a foreign civil war as uninvited occupiers.

Bring the troops home.

It was unclear what impact the blast might have on Trump's calculus 

Calculus? I never thought he was clever enough for mathematics at that level

Didn't even make the headlines on Fox News.

Seems whoever did this does not want the US to leave. They're trying to give the US an excuse to remain in Syria to "complete their mission".

It made ABC and they showed the actual blast. Horrible. RIP to all the victims and it makes a mockery over Trump's lie that ISIS is defeated.

ISIS claimed responsibility - mission accomplished

If US does not exterminate ISIS another 9-11 will happen, sooner or later...
