The fact is, as long as they are there, the President can't protect them. People (I think) know that when they join the military, they might be sent in harms way.

It's seems obvious that you think the President should be able to start a war any time an American soldier in a war zone is killed.

Describing our troops being in Iraq as any American anywhere...
That's beside the point.

It's what you said.  You said that Trump making decisions to protect the military in Iraq is the same as making a decision to protect any American anywhere.

It's clearly the point, you're suffering from acute Trump Derangement Syndrome.  You want dead Americans military and not to pile up everywhere so you can prove he's not fit for duty and get rid of him.

Think about that, you want him to not be competent so you can get rid of him for incompetence.  It's the America hating commie bastard that you are, Jeff

The point being that the President currently has the power to make war on anybody, anywhere, merely by claiming he is protecting Americans, or protecting the troops, or retaliating against harm done to Americans by foreigners.

I think it is naive nonsense to posit that killing an Iranian General has made American troops in Iraq safer.

This inane moment has been brought to you by the one, the original, Jeff!  That's why they call it Jeffing.

Yes, Democrat, the best way to deal with terrorists is to let them keep killing Americans.  We can't risk responding and making them mad.

You're such an idiot.  This all worked out exactly as planned.   You and the TDS Democrats are wrong EVERY TIME.  Yet you still lecture us when you were WRONG EVERY TIME.  Including this one.

The troops ARE in Iraq, dumb ass.  Not fighting back is as stupid as it sounds

Trump may in fact have trimmed Iran's sails by assassinating their top general, and threatening them with more of the same, but I simply don't think that has made our troops in the Middle East safer.

It's the power of presidents to take us to war that concerns me.

Whatever it takes to you and your TDS deranged brethren.  No cost is too high.  Literally.  You just like the idea of dead Americans right now.  There's some chance you can turn that against Trump.

That is one hundred percent the problem.

Any president who wants to fight an undeclared war has only to send U.S. troops where he know they are not wanted or needed.  Sooner or later someone will attack them and then the president can claim he's protecting the troops.

Armchair General First Class Kaz will say, "I thank he's doin' a great job o' protectin' our boys!  I wish I could be there helpin' em faht!"  Then he will belch and crush his aluminum Schlitz can so his friends know he is not all talk.

  

Snarky no more!

You really are deranged.

I had exactly the same concerns when W was president, and Obama.

Come to think of it, I was seriously upset by the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution.
