When exactly will it be okay for Congress to start talking impeachment? Obama has proven he is not capable of protecting this country. He has attacked his opposition more harshly than sworn enemies of the United States. He has created division in this country setting us back decades. He has lied repeatedly on all the scandals his admin is riddled with from obamacare to the IRS. He has sent arms to our enemies and NOW THIS!!
“The leaflets, which fluttered to the ground about 45 minutes before the strikes, simply said: “Get out of your trucks now, and run away from them. Warning: airstrikes are coming. Oil trucks will be destroyed. Get away from your oil trucks immediately. Do not risk your life.””
I want to know when and why it is a crime to talk impeachment? If this is not an impeachable defense, an example of aiding and abetting our enemies then what is?
I’ll tell you what America, WHEN we get hit again Congress must move to impeach obama if they don’t then we must start recall elections to remove these enemies of the Republic… or should I say Banana Republic!?
- Now some will argue, as indicated in the article, that this leaflet drop was to reduce civilian casualties. Anyone working for ISIS is not a civilian. These people know exactly who they are working for, ISIS is not some mystery organization hiding in the shadows. Sorry but the drivers are fair game in war.
(FTR the article below reporting this from PJ Media has been up since the 18th and has yet to be refuted! I posted it to express my two cents that it is time to put impeachment on the table.)
ISIS Oil Tankers Hit for First Time – With 45-Minute Warning
by Bridget Johnson | PJMedia
The spokesman for Operation Inherent Resolve said coalition airstrikes targeted ISIS’ oil tankers for the first time — with a warning from the sky first.
Briefing via teleconference from Baghdad to the Pentagon this morning, Col. Steve Warren told reporters that since Saturday “France has conducted numerous strikes against targets in Raqqa” — the capital of the Islamic State.
“Those targets include ISIL headquarters, training camps and storage depots. The French have been a robust partner and a robust member of Operation Inherent Resolve. They were the first — they were our first NATO partner to strike Iraq in September of ’14 and they’ve conducted about 12 percent of all of the non-U.S. strikes in Iraq and Syria so far. There are approximately 240 French troops here in Iraq training, advising and assisting the ISF,” Warren said.
French President Francois Hollande’s order to deploy the aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle to the region “will, we believe, add significant strike capability to the coalition.”
The coalition has been conducting Operation Tidal Wave II in the Syrian Euphrates River Valley.
“In Al-Bukamal, we destroyed 116 tanker trucks, which we believe will reduce ISIL’s ability to transport its stolen oil products,” Warren said. “This is our first strike against tanker trucks, and to minimize risks to civilians, we conducted a leaflet drop prior to the strike. We did a show of force, by — we had aircraft essentially buzz the trucks at low altitude.”
The leaflets, which fluttered to the ground about 45 minutes before the strikes, simply said: “Get out of your trucks now, and run away from them. Warning: airstrikes are coming. Oil trucks will be destroyed. Get away from your oil trucks immediately. Do not risk your life.”
“We combine these leaflet drops with very low altitude passes of some of our attack aviation, which sends a very powerful message,” the colonel added.
He said the decision to drop warnings came after they “assessed that these trucks, while although they are being used for operations that support ISIL, the truck drivers, themselves, probably not members of ISIL; they’re probably just civilians.”..more
