The point is that nobody has anything to celebrate in this country when the President goes on a fiery rampage in another country killing 8 people, totally devoid of due process. What if China did it at LAX, killing Americans and others? Is it any wonder that the Iraqi Parliament voted to expel American troops from their country? Name one other country in the whole world that has done that? When was the last time Russia or China did it? And imagine if they did what the reaction of the U.S. would be. The true meaning of "American exceptionalism" is that America, alone, can do such things, and it is nothing for any of us to celebrate. Trump, in his Navy Seal Raid on Yakla in 2017 killed 8 women and 7 children, including an American girl of Yemini descent whose name was Nawar Awalaki. She was shot in the neck, and she suffered for hours before she died. In his State of the Union address, Trump mourned the one Seal who died but said not a word about her, not even to express regret. I don't know about you, but it makes me sick. We talk about the Raid on Yakla in My Stretch of Texas Gound. The movie opens with it. It's the very first scene, and I applaud our actors who did it: Maz Sham, Marco Khan, Tulsi Ram, EJ Assi, Abe Khalis, and Chris Adams.
