3. An excuse for yet another distraction...SMH

 

Look for our response once Team Trump is finished presenting their "defense". A well timed deflection, so that the Senate Republicans can vote against new witnesses and evidence.

4. So Dumpy Trumpy got his fat ass war to distract from all his crimes against the US

But not to worry, Dumpy says war is like having unprotected sex and worrying about getting STDs. And he can evaluated injuries without ever seeing them or having any medical knowledge at all. Yet his little itty bitty bonespurs kept him out of fighting wars forever.

Bonespur coward leading the brave....disgusting.

8. From what I'm seeing on the news today,

we won't hear anything about it until after Kobe Bryant's funeral is over.

11. I feel the same way

The helicopter crash is tragic, but an attack on a US embassy is IMPORTANT.

16. Yes!

I did some Google searching on it and only came up with Kurdistan24 speculating on who did it. I am now waiting to see how long it takes for U.S. to respond militarily.

12. Causing no injuries might just mean causing no fatalities.

At least thats what it means in Trump world.

14. In tRump's version of things, no fatalities means No Big Deal.



Just a slight headache, two Tylenol and you’re good to go.

He is such a boob, know nothing. I don’t see how anyone in the military can stomach the sight of him, especially after his comments on the troops with TBIs. Just sickening how a grown ass man can be that ignorant.

15. "no injuries", so I hope everybody's alright.

Could have arms & legs blown off, but Trump will say that's nothing to a Marine.

US embassy in Iraq hit by rockets

The US Embassy in Baghdad was targeted in a rocket attack on Sunday, with at least one projectile hitting the heavily fortified compound.

Officials remained tight-lipped on the details of the attack. According to a security source cited by the AFP news agency, one rocket hit an embassy cafeteria while two other landed nearby.

Other agencies spoke of five Katyusha rockets fired and at least one of the projectiles hitting the embassy complex.

Following the news of the shelling, the US state department called on Baghdad to "fulfill its obligations to protect our diplomatic facilities."
