This is sheer insanity. The US military under Trump’s unsound guidance is out of control, and mainstream media's spin has got most Americans believing that we're still the good guys.

Excerpted from a CNN article:

"On Tuesday, the US-led coalition in Syria killed 18 of its own allies from the Syrian Democratic Forces in what was described as a misdirected airstrike. The United States is also investigating two strikes in Iraq and Syria, which Iraqi officials and activists in Syria say killed dozens of civilians."

Wake up people!

"There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware

I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

There's battle lines being drawn
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind

It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

What a field-day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly say hooray for our side

It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
You step out of line, the man come and take you away

We better stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, now, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down"
~Stephen Stills; For What It's Worth

"After the wars are over,
And the body count is finally filed,
I hope The Man discovers
What's driving the people wild..

Military madness, is killing your country
So much sadness, between you and me.
~Graham Nash; Military Madness

❤️❤️Noted...Very troubling, The bomb cost an exorbitant, preposterous amount of money and if it only killed 20 odd murdering isis fighters, it is a ridiculous failure. It could have fed a few thousand or more starving people in the Sudan. Mr Trump is a fair weather president he goes with what may make him seem tough and popular today and something else tomorrow. He was against President Obama doing the same thing now he's criticising Obama and doing what he was against. Is he worth the full quid or not?❤️Thank You...Rosie❤️❤️

He is, in spite of all he says to the contrary, a puppet to the far-right Republicans who whisper in his ear and whisper among themselves - and he knows that in order to continue presiding he has to do as they advise. He has made this possible by showing during the whole of his campaign that there were ways he would take, given the tiniest opportunity. Those who longed had taken money for helicopter hunting polar bears, for instance. Sarah Palin offered this 'service' to 'tourists' for a fee, which went into the Alaska treasury, when she was State Governor there. It was a certain type of redneck American who voted for him in many an instance - and they are the ones who know they can whisper and give advice to someone who thinks just like them and who will not only listen but with a little more coaxing, will act - and big. Those others who voted for him were simply afraid of the Clinton dynasty and what DJT referred to as 'career politicians., Maybe, but those career politicians had at least succeeded in protecting Alaska as well as they could, for several decades. Trump thinks he IS God. Referring to God's beautiful children. He forgets that his God created animals too and according to the Gospels Jesus said he was, quote, '"....sick of all the slaughter and sacrifice."
