Trump’s Messy First Commando Mission Comes Into Focus
War Is Boring

The occasional blatant anti Trump bias on this otherwise great site is disappointing. Trump didn’t plan this raid, which was prepared months in advance of his inauguration. Only complete wimps would assume no collateral damage occurs on raids, much less regular military missions. If they got the ‘valuable’ information and took out a major enemy base, OK. If not, a terrible miscalculation. This mission and the Osama raid seem to set a pattern of losing helicopters. That part of the raid might merit intense analysis to determine why under ideal flight conditions they lost this one.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
