That kind of trick usually works great. Not this time however. Americans don’t have to be paying attentiuon to the news to be outraged by obama’s fraud this time. They’re getting news of it in thei mail boxes when their health insurance gets cancelled. and they’re going to reminded of it every time they have to write a premium check that’s double what it was last year.

Secondary explosions from missiles with 70 kilo warheads and a ton or so of fuel.

Hmmmm. An attack from the sea.

Perhaps they angered Poseidon?

I hope the Russians were smart enough to get cash before shipping.

I wonder if Netanyahu could pass as a NBC. I sure would like to see a “man” (with balls) be President when we unload this thing we have now.

If Obama was involved, and he very could have been, it was to satiate his “masters” in the Saudi “Kingdom”

Sounds like James “Pee Wee” Cobb is flying for IDFAF instead of USN.

Fuel should not have been in or near rockets unless they were being readied for launch. Also not good idea to store all missles close to each other so maybe they just arrived, and the fuel was also offlaoded from the same ship. Agin not good logistics.

Just one of those random missiles that come out of the clear blue sky. Another of life’s mysteries. Maybe it’s aliens going it. They should look into that.

Depends upon what their definition of a base is. It could have been just an air defense site with several launchers, a few radar units, and some trucks. In that case a 1,000 lb. Tomahawk warhead or with the submunitions variant would definitely do the job.

Surface to air missiles are solid fuel rocket motors. They are cast during production. Just like the SRB's on the space shuttle. The biggie is the 70 kilo warhead. A few hundred 70 kilo warheads will make a most satisfactory display. Add tons of burning/exploding rocket motors and toss them around with explosions and it's bye bye air base.

He's getting frustrated that his beloved Muslim Brotherhood pals are taking so long to take the place over.
