WOW HOLY SHIT IRAN JUST KEKED THE US.
THEY WAITED UNTIL THEY GOT THEIR MONEY TO RELEASE OUR PEOPLE (NOT JUST THE US NAVY PEOPLE , ALL THE PRISONERS)
IRAN CONFIRMED FOR READING THE ART OF THE DEAL
US CONFIRMED FOR WATCHING ITS GLOBAL POSITION GET MOLESTED BY 3RD WORLD COUNTRIES
US CONFIRMED FOR KUKED
TRUMP WONT PULL THIS FAGGOTRY.
YOU GIVE US OUR PRISONERS OR WE WILL FUCKING INVADE
>"how dare you make a deal with iran when they have US prisoners! OBAMA!!"
>iran releases US prisoners
>"wow i can't believe US got cucked so hard wtf is wrong with OBAMA!!!"
are all trump supporters retarded?
Iran released the prisoners after they got a quarter of a trillion dollars back.
we were kucked for money and trump will monopolize on this.
Trump was right, he said they would release the prisoners before he took office. They know Trump would knock the living hell out of them if they were still captive in November.
Trump - Making America great again, even before he is officially the President.
>150 billion for 4 people
That's the gdp of fucking hungary
for the families of course.
but the United states just witnessed a president trading about a quarter of a trillion dollars being given to a country with no promise of prisoner return.
this was a gift from iran.
not an obligation.
we were just "touched by the king" in an embarassing display of political failure by the US.
You forgot to read the fine print
The U.S. will release SEVEN Iranian prisoners in exchange
>MFW Obama gets fucked making a deal AGAIN
The iran deal had no written language about prisoners being released.
we just gave them nearly a quarter of a trillion dollars with NO expectation the prisoners would be released
out of the kindness of their hearts.
just gave them away
Which branch of the service was Hillary in?
Bernie? Cruz? Jeb? Krispy Kreme? Marco Polo?
The press is hiding the fact that we are releasing 7 Iranian prisoners back to Iran.....try to google it and you won't find hardly anything
No, that isn't what happened at all. Obama is much, much softer on Iran than literally anyone else would be. Bernie Sanders wouldn't be this soft on them.
With Reagan v Carter, Reagan said he would bomb the shit out of Iran if they didn't release the hostages. Of course, Carter wouldn't go that far and wasn't able to get them out through any means and therefore lost the election horribly. Iran, aware of what Reagan said, let them out the same day.
This echos that situation immensely, and although most candidates compare themselves to Reagan, this time it's everyone else making the comparisons. And then, the Iranian hostages become a huge deal - almost like meme magic. The difference is that, unfortunately, they've learned when to be friendly since then.
Shia is not the main enemy, sunni Islam is.
Shia are getting bullied by sunnis everywhere.
Iran might be an actual ally against the forces of terror, aka saudi arabias proxies.
+ there is a HUGE movement of secular young people in Iran who love the US but hate the fucking mullahs.
They have openly stated that they wish for 1 month of airstrikes against the regime and would then try to handle it themselves.
Also, Iranians are not dirty arabs but persian, a proud, civilized people.
(still got fucked up by the greeks 3:0 gg no re)
this, why cant we just stop being cucks and go and get Persian wives?
Shut your fucking pie hole, muslim lover
Persians are not that muslim.
If the secular movement gets to decapitate the mullahs, they'll either be atheits, very "soft" muslims (they aren't even allowed to hadj at the moment, which kinda makes them non muslims) or, and this is the best case, they go all Zororastrian all over everybodys ass.
Motherfucking human sacrifices and praying to the god of fire.
You know it would be awesome.
No, Iran just wanted to fuck with Carter. Carter did launch an operation to rescue the hostages. They fucked up though and a bunch if the operators died before they were even close to Tehran.
Trump was the only guy even fucking talking about the prisoners. Obama completely ignored them.
If Trump said nothing they'd still be locked up.
Tommorow the UN is to give a ruling about their Nuke program... so the release was mostly to butter them up, since Trump put the heat on them for it.
Their assets haven't been unfrozen yet. They won't be jntil IAEA confirms that they've implemented their lart of the deal. It might even be a day or two from now.
Why do you filthy kikes lie so much?
Well, I'll just go hang out in Iran and knock back a few beers with my BLT sandwich and then go to the Strip club afterwards
>dodged the draft
You kids really need to stop saying this it only makes you look like an idiot
When a draft is held only certain people receive a draft card. It's not like they hit every single household with a call to arms. It's never been like that
They are. Seven Iranians are being released. They all were involved in trying to breach U.S. sanctions related to Iran.
This is a prisoner swap. Anyone thinking this was related to the nuclear deal or Iranian assets in banks is utterly retarded.
>giving the middle east, home of the muslim, 100 billion dollars
obama is going to get assassinated isnt he...
What the fuck are you talking about? The Iranians have fufilled their part of the deal, including destroyig their plutonium reactor. It's not like we're randomly giving them shit.
Nigger the deal was never signed
They are still going ahead with the deal but it was never actually signed
Congress wouldn't let it happen so they said fuck it and just started doing everything stipulated in it
President Trump asks Europe to help fight ISIS
All European countries force refugees to join service to fight ISIS
Many laughs to be had.........
>Trump was the only guy even fucking talking about the prisoners. Obama completely ignored them.
>If Trump said nothing they'd still be locked up.
trump hasn't said anything about these 4 since september.
trump has only recently been talking (lying) about the 10 sailors - which obama got released with a few hours.
trump doesn't give a shit about america or americans.
obama got them released as part of the deal. trump sat and cried in a corner as usual. trump failed, america won.
If Iran actually got nukes, which according to bibi will happen next thursday (at least that is what he has been saying for the last 30 years) they would probably nuke the saudis and then the jews.
Bernie is a pro-Israel Jew. Iran is just about the only country that he wouldn't fuck with, and he'd probably get us all killed over it. I'm only saying that he would not bend over for Iran like he did for those niggresses, not that that's a good thing.
Obama got sailors released....???
what insane stupid POS country would ever think to take U.S. military as prisoners if we had a president with balls?
You still think Obama's going to enforce the "red line" in Syria, don't you, retard?
Iran before islamic revolution: Degeneracy and debauchery.
Iran after islamic revolution: Degeneracy and debauchery outlawed.
If they didn't have a spiritual revolution (doesn't really matter which religion), they would be Sweden-tier by now, by becoming so weak someone else annexes them, for example the U.S....
>would never in a million years join the military,
I would gladly join any part of the military if it would ensure and work toward a great America.
Right now joining the military means trying to "save" shitty people who want to kill me and destroy my country.
>The United States granted clemency to seven Iranians and dropped charges against 14 more
Cuckservatives kept on wining about the four Americans being "held hostage", yet no mention of Iranians arrested in the US.
The Americans broke Iranian laws, just as Iranians broke American law
I'm sure cuckservatives will still complain that we released prisoners, even though we got the people out
You missed another part of the deal
>The United States granted clemency to seven Iranians and dropped charges against 14 more
Has to be under Saudi leadership, and they would have to go through (shia majority) Iraq.
If it happens they're going down.
>Russia sides with Iran
>america can't do nothing, might have to ally itself with russia to keep the oil flowing
What happens next is anybodies guess.
I don't think it's likely, but then again sunnis are fucking morons, and the saudis, some of the worst warriors in living memory, actually believe they are tough guys.
>Iran after islamic revolution: Degeneracy and debauchery outlawed.
You mean embraced to the extremes? The next and greatest degeneracy will always triumph over the former degeneracy in a progressive society.
This is why we're trying to stop it in our own country before it's too late.
You are aware of the fact that pretty much all of those 3rd world shitskins that are trying to ruin our country are sunnis, yes?
Apart from their subhuman religion Persians are actually human beings.
>country takes americans prisoner under Obama
>gives them up after a few hours from Obama's sheer force of will
>country takes americans prisoner under conservashits
>holds them for 10 days
>conservashits finally write them a letter apologizing and begging them to release the americans
trump would wait for the americans to be executed before apologizing and sucking the ayatollah's dick
ya idiot....who says it was Iranian waters....the Iranians? Do you not think the U.S. military has GPS equipment and have a clue where they are?...they were forcibly hijacked
Do you really believe this bullshit? They were questioned while on their knees being video taped.
You fucking basement dwelling retards have no idea what the fuck is going on....you actually believe iranians and this admin
Are you guys finally ready to admit that Obama was a Great President? And that you were all wrong for being so racist against him?
>You mean embraced to the extremes? The next and greatest degeneracy will always triumph over the former degeneracy in a progressive society.
>Obama doesn't apologize, cuckservatives whine about why he didn't go to war, apparently he apologized despite not apologizing
>Bush actually apologizes (twice) and not a fucking word from cuckservatives
That image is incredibly stupid and i won't even bother to write why because i'd have to adress every single point they made.
And that america did so good under obama was because the economy was naturally recovering after the reccession (which democrat clinton caused).
CAPS IO'M SUERPER CERTEAL I GTO CAPS LOOK BTFO USA WORLD OF 3RD CAPS DID MI MENTION CAPS??!?! CAPS I HAVE CAPS I SHITPOST LOOK AT ME CAPS I CAN CAPS YOU POW POW CAPYIDAY CAPS CAPS
kek, by a russian in disguise, wearing a tracksuit and an AK in a fishing boat
try again....Saudis, Israel, possibly India and Pakistan
Russia will back off...they won't be able or want to be with Iran who competes with them with oil
If Obama is gone, the U.S. will join in too. You aren't listening to the Rep candidates
>You know it was Kerry behind all the Iranian deal, right?
It just never fucking stops with you guys does it? The Republicans were against the deal in the first place they wanted to go to war. Now that the deal worked out Obama had nothing to do with it even though hes fucking Kerry's boss right, I guess its true racist people are really the stupidest
>mfw right wing dip shits are actually mad about not starting a war over this
literally kill yourselves.
This was almost certainly done on purpose by America as a test to see if Iran was ready to play ball.
Those boats have redundant everything. There is literally no chance that 2 of them would both "get lost" and "break down".
Plus there are tons of American assets nearby. Those are not long range boats. There were ships and aircraft that could have rescued them at any time.
And this happens literally days before the sanctions are to be lifted. If Iran had not played nice, the sanctions would not have been lifted and Iran would be back in the shithouse for the foreseeable future.
But we had to know for sure if they were capable of moving forward.
You must be of jewish descent (or perhaps a dirty sunni arab, maybe a turkroach).
IRAN IS NOT GETTING A DIME OF US MONEY, THEY'RE GETTING THEIR OWN MONEY THAT WAS LOCKED UP IN FOREIGN BANKS
YOU LYING PIECE OF SHIT SHILL
shit....let's get more specific.....Obama's top adviser is Iranian born muslim Valerie Jarrett
She probably had a little to do with this deal
A lot of them are just memeing ironically. I'd say it's really just a minority that seriously idolizes Trump and thinks he'd make a good President.
But then again, I am optimistic about this board's intelligence.
>discussing prisoner and hostage releases
>refers to trump as reagan
TRUMP IS LITERALLY GOING TO TRADE IRAN WEAPONS FOR PRISONERS
>some noname youtuber thinks the deal is bad
lets see who supports the deal
plus, all the officials from the other countries in the deal
The only people that have a problem with the US getting buddies buddies with Iran are the Saudi and Israel.
>deflecting this much
Get fuck retard I bet your the type of person who considers Bush to be a better President than Obama, The fact is that it was the OBAMA administration that initiated the deal, It was the OBAMA administration who stood up to the republicans who wanted to start ww3,
Kerry works for OBAMA
The Iranians respect OBAMA
keep living in your fantasy world the republicans are nothing but war mongers and your nothing but a sheep
Saudis are cucks.
Isreal has been attacked by sunni forces multiple times and knows that they are just waiting for the US to look the other way. Also, Israel destroyed saddams reactor, and those missiles would have been launched at Iran before Israel.
India hates Pakistan, they will never fight on the same side.
Pakistan is a failed state with no capability to attack anyone.
If attacked, Irand could seize shia majority Iraq to form a shia superstate to get dat sweet black gold.
Russia could become the major force in a divided middle east, which is what they wanted to do since forever.
Put Syria into the mix you now have a russia backed pro-shia axis from the arabian sea to the mediterranian. Kurds can be won over by protecting them and officially making the northern provinces of iraq kurdistan.
India will most likely approve of that, if only to fuck with pakistan.
As for the US, the last Republican president actually dismantled a Sunni regime in afghanistan and a sunni regime in Iraq.
If saudi arabia moves, they are dead.
Your analysis is wrong.
You may be illiterate
>The United States granted clemency to seven Iranians and dropped charges against 14 more in exchange for the release of four Americans held in Iran, a US official said Saturday.
Yeah, they stopped trying to extradite 14 people they were never going to get anyway (since they were in iran). That doesn't count as part of the prisoner exchange. In exchange for the canceled attempts at extradition, the Iranians promised to look for Levinson. Sounds fair to me.
Trading 5 for 7 and clemency for 14 is not a good deal
I bet you think Burghdal for 5 Taliban was great as well
>Obama droning dozens of country
>still in Afghanistan
If you honestly believe that Sunnis are not americas main enemy, you better bring at least an argument, if not proof.
>wtc attack one was sunni, guy got sheltered by saddam (sunni)
>9/11 was Bin laden (sunni and saudi arabian), all terrorists were sunni and from saudi arabia
>ISIS is sunni
Please point to shia aggression towards the US since that embassy thing.
The ayatollas are fucked regardless.
More than 50% of iranians are under 30, and they were born only because the mullahs paid women to have more children after they used a generation of children to clear minefields and machine gun nests in the Iraq war.
The ayatollahs can't even get a cab in teheran.
nice arguments retard
here's the facts since your attention span probably doesn't last 13 minutes:
US paid Iran 150bil for 4 prisoners and the possibility that maybe Iran won't build nuclear weapons for the next 10 years.
If shit hits the fan Iran can still buy the weapons or even in fact build them (since if you watched the video you would understand why it would take at least 20-25 days from the moment US requests an inspection to the moment that they can actually inspect the Iran armament).
>mfw Obongo bootlickers actually exist
Pakistan is nuclear, as is Israel.....Israel may be inclined to use theirs
Egypt also hates the Iranians
Saudis just made a billion dollar deal for weapons and has people here in the U.S. learning how to use them
The U.S. is no longer dependent on foreign oil and every candidate wants to show how tough they can be on Iran. Iraq is devastated and can't even defend their own cities against ISIS. Russia is about to collapse financially
you can do that without turning into Iran into japan, which respect to geopolitical, economic and nuclear capabilities. They basically get to annex Iraq, we don't need to be as generous as we have been. They're upset iran took advantage of america to a greater extent than they did.
>I bet you think Burghdal for 5 Taliban
I think that's totally insignificant 5 goatfuckers against the strongest Military in the world wont change a thing
Mean while Bush started a major war which completely destabilized the middle east and bankrupted our country and got thousands of our soldiers killed plus 911 happened on his watch but you want to bash Obama? Its fucking pathetic and you know it
Why would Israel use their nukes against at all?
Why against Iran?
Why would they side with sunni forces when they hate them like mad for palestine?
Egypt is only pro Israel because of trillions of US taxpayer money, they havve nothing to gain.
Saudis can't fight for shit.
>The U.S. is no longer dependent on foreign oil
>Russia is about to collapse financially
War in the middle east would make russias oil infenitely more valuable.
Please provide anything that at least sounds like an argument for your wild ideas, at the moment you are literally just naming countries.
>Bush started a major war
Oh look, now Liberals think Bush is a genius that is able to trick all of Congress to go to war
I'm sure he ordered people working under him to push false info and they never did it on their own or by orders from others.
Also, $19 trillion
Playing the Bush card 7 years into Obama's presidency
As ISIS grew, the middle east exploded as bad decisions were made in Libya, Egypt and Syria and our national debt has doubled
There are no limits to the stupidity of libtards.
President is not responsible for the business cycle (stock market, unemployment).
The one war is still going on, the other we pulled out too soon, and then you can add destabilizing Libya, Egypt, and Syria to that.
President is not responsible for the price of gas.
He did not cut the deficit.
>implying kicking out the illegals wouldn't free up millions of jobs for the African American community and drastically improve the living conditions of the inner cities
>implying reforming our immigration system to only admit skilled and educated people wouldn't force businesses to increase wages
>implying both of these things wouldn't drastically increase consumer spending and thus our GDP
>implying temporarily restricting Muslim immigrants wouldn't allow us to reform our visa system which would then allow us to prevent Islamic extremists from legally entering the country
>implying Mexico won't build the wall
It's like you don't want America to be great again.
>poor people fight and die in the frontlines
>rich people sit back and watch from far
>if shit hits the fan and the enemy reaches them they enter a helicopter and get further away
how is that commie propaganda? That's what happens in pretty much any war
Do you have an example of a rich guy fighting in the trenches?
>President is not responsible for the business cycle (stock market, unemployment).
I love it even at his SotU he said PRIVATE jobs created
He could create public jobs, like adding 200+ ATF workers to help with background checks, but he has shit to do with private jobs
Iran has threatened to destro Israel...why wouldn't Israel take them out?
Iran can't fight worth a shit....they have 50 year old planes and no parts
A Rep president would be more than happy to dismantle Obama's muslim dick sucking by backing Saudi/Israel/Egypt coalition
Russia isn't go to wander into a fight with the U.S. if we have a real president....their oil will be worth more if they just sit back. They can't afford a war
No, they helped Trump into office because they know he will be a shitty leader, persecute muslims. and drive more of them to join their cause. Why the fuck else would they do this?
Daesh only grew because Bush destabilized the middle east so much if Bush didn't take out Saddam (who by the way never had nukes) then there would be no Daesh, no matter how you look at it the whole middle east situation is Bush's fault and Obama has just been trying to clean up his mess and doing a good job of it too but you guys give him no credit its pathetic
Yes, because they're fucking prisoners who broke Iranian law
No other country whines about citizens who are in prison in the US for breaking our laws
We just have a hard on for Iran recently
Again, with Bergdhal, what will stop other countries or groups from actually kidnapping Americans and calling for release of certain prisoners?
>Iran has threatened to destro Israel...why wouldn't Israel take them out?
Just like EVERY Sunni country
>Iran can't fight worth a shit....they have 50 year old planes and no parts
Yeah, but unlike Saudi arabia they have actually faught and won a war in living memory
>A Rep president would be more than happy to dismantle Obama's muslim dick sucking by backing Saudi/Israel/Egypt coalition
So starting a war in the whole middle east on the side of the sunnis is not muslim dick sucking?
Are you stupid?
>Russia isn't go to wander into a fight with the U.S. if we have a real president....their oil will be worth more if they just sit back. They can't afford a war
No one said they're gonna fight the US, they're gonna fight sunni forces every day.
They are doing it RIGHT NOW.
>doing a good job of it too but you guys give him no credit its pathetic
Yes, Iraq overrun by terrorists is a good job
He didn't even end the Iraq War, he just followed through with Bush's SoFA, then got out as fast as he could
>Iran gets its own money back that the US seized
>Ships off a couple of nobodies
The US seizure of Iranian funds was only possible due to its long political reach into European banking. Things should take an interesting turn with China setting up its own IMF knockoff.
Trump was against the Iraq war, he said exactly what you're saying now back then.
And THE ISLAMIC STATE (i don't know why you're using the arab name) grew first of all because obongo and his naive followers made the us leave iraq when sunni and shia relations were at an all time low.
Then they wanted to remove evil dictator assad (which trump was against again) and they also could fill the power hole there.
God I hate this pic so much
The unemployment rate only counts those who have looked for a job in the past 4 weeks. The non-participation rate is a much better indicator of economic strength and it's the lowest it's been in 40 years
>cost of gas meme
This is due in large part to the increase of domestic oil production, which is great but is something that conservatives have been advocating for and liberals are decidedly against. Don't know why they're bragging about this.
97% of the increase came from people who were newly enrolled in Medicaid. These are able-bodied adults enrolling into a financially insolvent program meant for disabled and struggling people. This is an utter failure.
4 for 7+ 150b
>USA locks up Iranian funds
>Iranians had already delivered goods and services but wasn't given money
>USA says we'll let you have your money and you can buy our stuff if you destroy your nuke production stiluff and let us verify you did
>Iran says deal
>USA sailors drift into Iranian waters
>Iran gives them back in a day
>Iran finishes off its part of the deal pouring concrete on its nuke production machinery
>USA says okay now give us our people back including our spies and dumbass journalist
>Iran says "okay can we buy civilian aircraft for 4 times the normal price?"
>USA sure, but you drop your tariffs on our goods
Now. It seems like 2 rational nations working together. Iran gets back into the global economy, gets to sell oil off, but gives up nukes while it stops acting like an ass
So. Who do you think is starting these threads and why?
Who is not happy that Iran and USA are working together to wipe out things like Isis in Iraq?
They aren't our allies, but they aren't our enemies.
Gee who would want to keep the Iranians and Americans at odds so they can keep getting billions in military aid?
Hmmm. Who could it ever be?
Ps check the proxies some Americans in this thread aren't actually Americans
agreed, the army is gonna fill its ranks based on skill, so the positions that require smarts are gonna go to smart people. No disagreement on that.
We're not talking about smartness tho, we are talking about money. And you are never gonna see a rich guy serving in the army, be it artillery, tanks, airborne etc. Sure, a smart poor guy might get a desk job and stay away from the frontlines, but the rich guy (regardless of smarts) ain't gonna get anywhere near the army, no matter the position.
>This is due in large part to the increase of domestic oil production, which is great but is something that conservatives have been advocating for and liberals are decidedly against. Don't know why they're bragging about this.
I fucking hate that
Those fucks are always calling for alternative energy, yet when it's Obama approving oil drilling and giving Arctic drilling permit to Shell, it's fine.
In the end, I'm sure when gas is down, no one cares how or why
>Trump was against the Iraq war, he said exactly what you're saying now back then
Trump was a democrat back then now hes a war mongering republican like the rest of them maybe even worse
> And THE ISLAMIC STATE (i don't know why you're using the arab name
Daesh is NOT Islamic and they would have never grown at all if Bush didn't overthrow Saddam
>Which branch of the service was Hillary in?
Arkansas Volunteer Militia
People' Democratic Army of Vermont
Canadian Bicycle Infantry
Army-Navy Surplus store
Italian Special Forces
>Daesh is NOT Islamic
Not true Muslims, amriite?
Retards claim saying Islamic State is just legitimizing the group
Bigger retards don't realize DAESH is an acronym and just legitimizes the group to the Arab speaking world
>The group is also known as Daesh, which is an acronym derived from its Arabic name ad-Dawlah al-Islāmiyah fī 'l-ʿIrāq wa-sh-Shām (الدولة الإسلامية في العراق والشام).
trump is still against the bush-obama wars
only obama created isis when he pulled out (he now claims is was not his decision to end the war [but it was his decision to restart it])
/pol/ disappoints yet again. Do you not understand the concept of a prisoner swap? Reagan made prisoner swaps, literally every president from every party has.
Also Iran has neither enough plutonium or HEU to make a bomb (the stuff they have is LEU, which only works for energy generation), and cannot build an ICBM. Building rockets is exceedingly hard. Harder than building a nuke, the phrase "rocket science" exists for a reason.
>Reagan made prisoner swaps
He was also a cuck. Don't know why so many praise him
>literally every president from every party has.
I'd like a list. If true, I'm sure they've been 1:1 trades, not 5:1 or 7:1 plus clemency for a dozen
I don't get how isolated North Korea can have a nuke already, yet not Iran
>this image triggers the autist
This image tickled my autism bone. Why are they using a shitty font made to look like Hindi when Iran uses ARABIC. Don't the people who made this image know the fucking difference between arabic and hindi?
Reminds me of these people who think Sihks are muslims. Where the fuck does this come from?
Sadly there is no list of all prisoner swaps - its a tradition that predates the founding of the US however, and it is virtually guaranteed to have happened under every president. But it's not open knowledge.
As to NK having a nuke and not Iran - A nuke is more valuable to their extremely paranoid, at times suicidal, ideology than to Iran. Furthermore, NK slowly worked at a nuke for decades, and have produced maybe 3-4 shitty ones.
Iran really isn't a third world country. Iranians living in cities are pretty well off, comparable to the middle or working class in a 1st world nation. Their buying power may not be huge, but there at the very least, a 2nd world country with 3rd world parts in rural areas. The same can be said of Syria, Lebanon, Turkey and Russia.
What is wrong with Americans? Why are they so hopelessly insecure about everything? Are they trying to convince themselves of something?
You guys do realise Iran is probably the best country in the middle east and asia?
Saudi Arabia are the worst ones, Americas ally, you know the ones who make your troops DIE in random wars.
Iran just chilling.
Not even close, Muhammad. Lebanon, barring Syrian and Palestinian intrusion, and even Jordan are miles better than Iran.
>as bad decisions were made in Libya
I'm sick of this bullshit.
Yes, Libya is a failed state, but it was already going to be. And if you knew anything about our kill rate, we dropped more bombs than we actually killed people (and that includes civilian casualties), most of our operations there were to destroy materiel, ie weapons and vehicles that would have fallen into the wrong hands as shit got worse.
Ghaddafi was a sponsor of terror and the richest motherfucker on the planet. He's dead and his assets have been seized.
There was no downside and plenty of upside to Libya. Get fucked.
Hungary is pretty based though
this x 1000. only american lives matter. captured terrorists arent worth the taxes to keep alive; better to just release them back into their natural habitat and just lut up a fence to keep them out. and if we can rescue some americans while doing it thats great too
Remember when /pol/ predicted a few days ago that the whole positive PR event for Iran with the US soldiers, was actually orchestrated by the US government? Well, we now know why it happened, along with the pondering by the government as to why they said thank you for forcing them to put their hands on their head. The military, seriously, used for an Iran PR stunt for prisoner swap negotiations, i.e., political gain. Bravo.
>dies for Israel
>laughed at for Iran gain
I can't believe you are this blue pilled.
Gaddafi was killed because he didn't bend for the west and wanted to stop trading oil in dollars.
The small minorty of rebels wouldn't have had a chance if they didn't get aided by the no fly zone and millions in weapons.
10,000's of deaths later Libya is left in chaos.
So yes, in terms of profit there was upside to Libya for the US, but for everyone else you left a rotting mess.
Thank god Putin vetoed you kike lovers from pulling the same shit in Syria.
>Bush won 2 times for presidency while being mentally deficient.
>Passed no child left behind act.
>Passed Patriot act by preying on fears
>"beats the democrat"
yeah that approval rating means nothing both obama and bush were great presidents!!!
Both those pics are shopped. He never looked that good and he doesn't look that bad.
Plus, in the early part of his presidency he was still dying his hair and wearing make-up. Once he actually had to start doing things, he laid off the cosmetics more and more.
>The small minorty of rebels wouldn't have had a chance if they didn't get aided by the no fly zone and millions in weapons.
Nigga I remember that war and it was a total stalemate between east and west
>10,000's of deaths later Libya is left in chaos.
Not our problem and I doubt the perpetual civil war would have done much better. But I'm sure he could have won with a shittier military than Assad has and without any international backing. Really, he would have definitely put down that shit quickly without western intervention. It was all the Wests fault Libya went to shit. Really.
Like I said, fuckton of African weapons and vehicles didn't end up "lost" in the middle of a civil war and western nations killed the richest asshole on earth and stole all his shit.
No downside for the USA.
Also the French oil must flow.
Also we mostly fought the war with our outdated Tomahawk surplus from Nam so it was basically already paid for too.
You can't expect us to not topple dictators when we have all these spare bombs left over from the Cold War, can you?
>His companies have filed for bankruptcy four times.
Idiots. He has filed for bankruptcy on four of his companies. He hasn't gone broke four separate times. Why is this so hard to understand? Out of nearly one hundred different business ventures, four of them failed, and he declared bankruptcy on those.
Persians are our friends.
The money is for war ;) against Saudi scum.
The prisoner exchange is smoke screen and an excuse to fund Iran to attack SA.
You're all missing the obvious play.
>B-But that's racist, muh holocaust.
