The Never-Ending Wars Continue…. U.S. Military Retaliates Against Iran-Backed Militia Groups With Airstrikes

Published

On Thursday, March 12, 2020, U.S. and coalition aircraft launched retaliatory airstrikes against the Iranian-supported Kataib Hezbollah militia group locations in Iraq.

Politico reports that these retaliatory strikes were in response to a rocket attack launched against a military base, which killed two American troops.

The strike came a few hours after Pentagon officials pinned the blame on Iranian-backed Shia militia groups and warned that the U.S. government would respond to the military’s attack, which additionally killed a British serviceman and wounded 14 other troops.

The airstrikes were directed towards five Kataib Hezbollah weapons facilities and had the intention of hurting their ability to carry out future attacks against U.S. and coalition forces, according to a statement from the Defense Department.

“Let me be clear: The U.S. will not tolerate attacks against our people, our interests or our allies,” Defense Secretary Mark Esper told reporters at the Pentagon earlier in the day. He noted that he spoke to President Donald Trump in the aftermath of the attack and the president gave him “the authority to do what we need to do consistent with his guidance.”

“These terror groups must cease their attacks on U.S. and coalition forces or face consequences at a time and place of our choosing,” according to the statement.

During the last few months, tensions between Iran and the U.S. have been dialed up.

As long as the U.S. government maintains a military presence in the Middle East, the country will continue to be susceptible to terror attacks like the one witnessed on March 11.

A full American troop withdrawal is long overdue.

Even Major League Baseball is not exempt from political correctness.

The Washington Post reported that the Cleveland Indians are in the process of changing their name after the Washington Redskins announced their decision to review a potential name change before the NFL’s 2020 season.

“We are committed to making a positive impact in our community and embrace our responsibility to advance social justice and equality,” the Indians declared in a statement. “Our organization fully recognizes our team name is among the most visible ways in which we connect with the community. We have had ongoing discussions organizationally on these issues. The recent unrest in our community and our country has only underscored the need for us to keep improving as an organization on issues of social justice.”

According to a report from The Athletic, the Indians leadership is expecting to discuss the matter with Native American leaders, fans, players, alumni, and staff within the organization before making a final name change.

The Washington Post pointed out that “The club de-emphasized its “Chief Wahoo” logo in 2016 in favor of the red ‘Block C’ logo.”

“We do have empathy for those who take issue with it,” Indians owner Paul Dolan commented about the logo in 2016. “We have minimized the use of it, and we’ll continue to do what we think is appropriate.”

In the 2018 season, “Chief Wahoo” was eliminated and the team no longer uses the logo.

The degree of cultural radicalism America is going through in 2020 is off the charts.

The Left is moving at breakneck speed in its efforts to transform America in every possible way, while most of the Right stays asleep.
