Trump kills their terrorist expert and simultaneously gets them to show the world how inept their missile targeting system is while getting the entire Democrat Party and all of their propagandists to expose themselves as anti American/ pro terrorist scum!
I love this President more every day! I have often said “I wish I had not voted for some politician” but this is the first time I have been saying “I wish I had voted for this guy”; following politics has gone from frustrating to fun for 3 years now!
Their missiles have shot down Israeli F-16s. Those things are harder to hit than buildings.
I think they’re doing the same thing Modi did in “Bombing” Pakistan; creating an illusion of a counter-strike, while making it functionally inert to avoid a true escalation.
A more substantive reaction will probably come about in Saudi Arabia, or through more attacks in shipping. Soft targets that we Americans don’t really care about, and which they feel they can get away with.
All I can say is this is news to me, and I listen to the news regularly. But a search revealed a lot of credible hits, so I can’t argue. But two things I can: You said “F-16s” plural, and I’m only seeing one; and you said it was with “missiles,” and I’m only seeing “ground fire,” which usually indicates AA guns.
I’m not aware of that, either. In fact, the only Bakaa Valley action I’m familiar with is the 1982 war, and no F-16s were lost in that; just an A-4, an RF-4, and an AH-1. One F-16 was reportedly "badly damaged by ground fire, and an F-15 was “damaged by parts from an exploding MiG” (probably F.O.D. in the engines).
