WEB Notes: The republican party is always the war hawk party. obama and the democrats greatly expanded and increased the wars as well, but as we have seen so far the trump admin is increasing the momentum of war.

President Donald Trump has expanded the role of the U.S. military in Africa, giving the Pentagon more authority Wednesday to conduct airstrikes and send in U.S. troops to help the embattled East African nation battle Islamist insurgents.

Trump’s move would allow U.S. special forces to work directly with the Somali military, which has struggled for over a decade against the influence of Al-Shabab, an ultraconservative Sunni Muslim militant group linked to Al-Qaeda, the Associated Press reported. The new directive labeled swaths of southern Somalia, excluding the capital district of Mogadishu, as war zones. The revision would give U.S. ground forces the ability to call in airstrikes without higher-level approval, something the Pentagon has reportedly been asking for in order to realize its stated goal of stabilizing the nation, which has seen near-constant conflict for over 25 years. Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesperson, said that the move would assist both the U.S. and its allies.

  1. “And Jesus answered and said to them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
    For many shall come in My Name, saying I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
    And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for
    all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
    For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines,
    and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
    All these are the beginning of sorrows.(Matt. 24: 4-8 KJV)
    This is what it is, regardless of politics, or anything else. We’ve had wars since time immemorial,
    along with everything else and nobody ever seems to get it, that the real war is spiritual, God VS. Satan. Duh!

    • The trump administration is expanding the wars dramatically at this time. The children of Satan “got their boy in there”. That statement proves itself with articles like these.

  2. “The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous” – George Orwell
    Both parties are involved, since WWII. Harry Truman, Democrat – Korea; Lyndon Johnson, Democrat – Vietnam; Richard Nixon, Republican continued in Vietnam, added Laos & Cambodia; Ronald Reagan, Republican – Beirut & Grenada; George H.W. Bush, Republican – Panama, Iraq, & Somalia; Bill Clinton, Democrat – Bosnia & Kosovo; George W. Bush, Republican – Afghanistan & Iraq; Barack Obama, Democrat – Libya, Somalia, & Yemen
    Christ teaching Matthew 24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubles: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
    Thanks, Brandon
