The only difference between a hyper-sonic missile and space vehicle is the payload.

Those talks led to a February 2020 agreement in which U.S. troops would leave the following year.

So this guy authored Trump's surrender to the Taliban?

The office of the president gets to decide all of those things. Trump is no longer president.

Trump's hoping to tie it up in court and then republicans win back the House so they can stop the investigation into 1/6.

He loved the US so much he helped the neocons lie us into a war.

He lied to the US public and the world to justify the unjustifiable invasion of Iraq, sorry I just cannot give a damn.

Posted in: Coalition says at least 165 Yemen rebels killed near Marib See in context

To bring peace to Yemen, Saudis should stop bombing them, and stop meddling in their affairs, and pay for damages they caused. Western media talks about Houthis as if they are al Qaeda. They are the current government of Yemen with 80% of Yemenis living under them. They have said, they have no problems to have other Yemeni political factions excluding ISIS, and al Qaeda, join them in governing. The whole Yemeni war is about US controlling Bab-el-Mandeb (Strait located between Yemen on the Arabian Peninsula, and Djibouti and Eritrea in the Horn of Africa) through Saudi Arabia, to prevent a possible Chinese entry.

What's missing is acknowledging that this cluster is blowback on the Saudis for trying to dilute the power of the Zaiydi and Al-Hirak by creating two province's one in the shape of a rectangle that would've attached Saada to Sanaa and the others splitting Aiden province in two.

Trump statement issued via his Save America PAC

Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America

The highly partisan Unselect Committee is just a sideshow to distract America from MASSIVE failures by Biden and the Democrats. What happened to the Capitol would have never happened if the people in charge did their job and looked at the intelligence. They abandoned the officers on the ground.

I would like to point out

the person in charge that day you said that didn't do their job and abandoned the officers on the ground

that was you.

Posted in: U.S., Israel say they are exploring a 'Plan B' for Iran See in context

It was US that broke the deal. It is US that sanctions Iran. It is not diplomacy to go back on a deal and drive countries into the ground.

At the end of the day, it is pretty much an Israeli issue - so let them deal with it. It is Israel that threatens Iran every day, not the other way round. Israel says they’ll bomb the sites. Fine - I’d like to see it. Israel should walk it like she talks it. Don’t cry to me if, I don’t know, Tel Aviv gets bombed.

Yes, Trump lost the election and is no longer part of the Executive Branch. President Biden is the Executive, and he says NO executive privilege for Trump.

Executive privilege does not cover criminal activity.

One also has to be the chief executive to use it.
