Are we starting a war without the American people even knowing it?

Sen. Chris Murphy, Contributor
United States Senator for Connecticut

Trump Is Dragging Us Into Another War... And No One Is Talking About It
While Americans have been focused on the ACA and Trumpís ties to Russia, Trump has been busy expanding the American troop presence inside Syria.
03/25/2017 11:47 am ET | Updated 14 hours ago

With no announcement trump has sent 500 troops into Syria.

Plans are for hundreds more to be sent .in the next few weeks. Rumors are this could be the tip of the iceberg. The administration is trying to keep it secret.

This info is from Sen. Chris Murphy at huffpost.

4. Rules of engagement have been relaxed also.

Civilian casualties rising as result.Our Imbecile-in-Chief has given DOD unprecedented latitude in conducting operations and forming policy. We are left with having to place our trust in the Sec. of Defense and his ability to constrain his former band of brothers.

Congress is our only other hope for constraint here.Don't have much faith in them at this point in time.
My heart goes out to all those with loved ones in the US armed forces.

10. We absolutely need to pursue Russia... so

many newish posters concerned with Russia today...and advocating not pursuing it...we will pursue it...and the easiest way to stop Trump is to get him impeached.

15. It's also what happens when you give a mentally ill man with the maturity

of a 10-year old access to drones and the military. And then there is shadow-president Stephen "Watch It Burn" Bannon to contend with.

17. I heard this a few weeks ago

and wondering why the media wasn't reporting it,they can report on more than one story at the time.

Reporters need to keep their eye on Bannon.

19. Wars can be won when fought against other nation-states.

Wars against "terror" only breed more "terror".

22. Thank you. I seem to want to write at nighttime when I'm usually sleeping.

All the info I take in from news sources all day long congeal late at night. Not always the best writing results, but I've had this very strong feeling he's up to something. Look at all the different reports coming out about civilian casualties in Mosul. The numbers very greatly, but those on the ground est from 150-200. I believe this is from the relaxing of rules by trump trying to minimize civilian casualties. Iraq is upset too.

26. MSM leading us around by the nose

I'm all for blaming stuff on trumpolini but I watched the whole WH briefing today and not one reporter ask about the troop build up. He may be sneaking but the MSM could stop beating the trump russia drum for a few moments and report it. The information is out there, it's no secret, MSM just not reporting it.

So hey, what's one more?

Poverty IS violence. Poverty feeds violent action.
