      It seems you live a life of luxury bliss and ignorance where (you think) terrorists are not targeting you for their Jihad fantasies. Lucky you. The rest of us believe in self defense, and that includes preempting when necessary!
      Deal with it.
      And if you cant you are welcome to move to Iran, China, or North Korea.

    Mike Pompeo is very dangerous, he is from the old guard of the “Good Shepherd” and has made it clear that it is time to settle accounts … He is already in Lebanon pointing to the pigs, he has also deployed “flying” commands in Yemen … He is distributing death cards throughout the Middle East … The Saudis are jumping for joy dancing with their swords: “Allah is a supporter of America”
