  • Trump loses support among military

    This is interesting, but not surprising. Think President Trump's unfavorability among military will continue to go up with the latest developments?

    Half of active-duty military personnel contacted in the poll held an unfavorable view of President Trump, showing a continued decline in his approval rating since he was elected in 2016. Trump’s 42 percent approval in the latest poll, conducted from Oct. 23 to Dec. 2, sets his lowest mark in the survey since being elected president. Some 50 percent of troops said they had an unfavorable view of him. By comparison, just a few weeks after his electoral victory in November 2016, 46 percent of troops surveyed had a positive view of the businessman-turned-politician, and 37 percent had a negative opinion.

    No.

    Especially when Trump wants the armed forces to commit war crimes. At least SecDef has exercised common sense in stating the armed forces will obey the laws of warfare.

            Hmmm...I would venture a guess that the several thousand men trapped in Iraq would be weighing on a lot of peoples' minds.
            I am personally of the opinion that the asassination was justified- or justifiable. Hezbollah Of Lebanon has devolved into a mafia.

              Americans are fickle people. Once Iran responds with an attack of their own, their opinions will change. They will become gung-ho patriots again and their support of Trump will rise. His war with Iran will increase military support, eventually, and will make him impossible to replace in 2020.

              Once we're engaged with Iran, we'll have no choice but to finish the war and most of the country won't replace a republican with a democrat in that situation. In that respect it was a brilliant move by Trump.

                  Trump already had 2020 in the bag. Don't kid yourself. Americans support his strike because he stands up for America. Do you forget we were attacked? By Iran? An act of war? Obama would have taken it. Democrats want to appease, like Neville Chamberlain against Hitler. Sure there is some condascension involved; we could crush Iran in less than a day, and it's nice to let them hit us a few times, to vent their anger. But that's crazy. What if it was you or your family in that embassy?

                    Have the airbase damage and Casualty figures arrived yet?
                    I agree that in a drone strike exchange, Iran's odds look pretty long.

                        Missile strikes against US bases in Iraq were legitimate self-defense measures and are now over, as Iran does not intend to wage war or escalate the situation further, Foreign Minister Javad Zarif has said.



                        Two volleys of missiles aimed at the Al-Asad base in Iraq’s Anbar province and another facility near Erbil were “proportionate measures in self-defense” under 51 of the UN Charter, Zarif tweeted from Tehran in the early hours of Wednesday, describing the action as “completed.”

                        Supposedly they didn't even hit their target. No casualties and they're not interested in any further escalations. As worthless as the attack was, more of a token response than anything else, it's still all Trump needs for his war.

                          It will be interesting to see Trump's response. He should fire a few rockets and hit nothing but sand. Then we can have a "war" of misses.

                            We know the politic opinions of the Gannett Company who owns Military Times .
                            What we do not know and what the Gannett Company is wisely hiding, is the number of military that have been interviewed: if it is 100, 50% of 100 = 50 .

                              According to serial liars? You shouldn't be so naive to think people wouldn't want to trick and take advantage of you.
                              I can look at recent elections to see what will happen in 2020. Every day we get closer to 2020, the less chance Trump has of winning.
                              Could it be that RW carnival barkers are lying intentionally? Of course. That's what they do. They sit around in a room and try to figure out language and conspiracy theories to target conservatives.
