    Just “headaches” according to the commander in Chief.

    Thirty-four U.S. troops were diagnosed with traumatic brain injuries after an Iranian missile strike that hit a U.S. military base in Iraq, the Pentagon said.

    Oh, thank goodness. I thought it might be something serious like bone spurs.

    Trump supporters will go wild when he holds up a bottle aspirin and tells them, “No one takes better care of our troops than me!”

    Maybe he can throw those bottles randomly into the crowd from an elevated platform?

    CIA chief 'behind Soleimani's assassination' killed in downed plane in Afghanistan
    Source: Middle East Monitor

    Russian intelligence sources have claimed that Michael D’Andrea, head of CIA operations in Iran and who orchestrated the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani, was killed in a US spy plane downed yesterday in Ghazni, Afghanistan.

    The plane with US Air Force markings reportedly served as the CIA’s mobile command for D’Andrea, who earned several nicknames including: Ayatollah Mike, the Dark Prince, and the Undertaker. He is one of the most prominent CIA figures in the region, appointed head of the agency’s Iran Mission Centre in 2017. Under his leadership, the agency was perceived to take a more “aggressive stance toward Iran”.

    The Taliban claimed to have shot down the plane but have yet to provide evidence, whilst the US has denied the claim but has acknowledged the loss of a Bombardier E-11A plane in central Afghanistan. Graphic images online have already circulated purportedly showing some of the charred remains of those on board.

    Afghan authorities initially claimed the plane was a state-owned airline, but this was denied by the company, Ariana. Helicopters have been brought down before by the Taliban, but they are not believed to have the capabilities required to bring down a high-flying aircraft.

    Would be easy enough to leak his flight path to the enemy (Taliban, Iran, etc., et al) without anyone being tipped that we're offing one of our own...

    If that's the case, we need to hit back against the SVR hard and fast.

    In New York, in broad daylight, with plenty of witnesses. Or Vienna, or any other capital or major city.

    Against their heads, their agents, their families, and anyone else we can lay hands on. Make them pay through the nose and give them pause if they want to get involved in US operations again.

    You don't mess around at this level. You hit back harder, more savagely, and without remorse.

    How would they have known D'Andrea was on the plane? Assuming that it was indeed shot down, which is a bit of a reach, how would they know he was on it?
