Israel says it has inflicted huge damage on Syrian air defenses after one of its fighter jets was brought down during a raid over Syria. The response was the "most significant attack" of its kind against Syria since the 1982 Lebanon war, said senior Israeli air force general Tomer Bar. The F-16 jet went down during a mission that followed an Iranian drone launch into Israeli territory, Israel says.

"The Obama administration on Wednesday paid $490 million in cash assets to Iran and will have released a total of $11.9 billion to the Islamic Republic by the time nuclear talks are scheduled to end in June, according to figures provided by the State Department."

Iran supports Syria.

Thanks Obama.

Saying the Obama administration paid money to Iran is like saying the bank paid you when you use an ATM.

The money was Iran's money we had blocked them from accessing. Not $1 of American money went to Iran

They get American money. A whopping $675k a year from USAID.

To be clear supporting Syria and Hezbollah along with a weak economy is what is causing issues at home. If you haven't noticed Iran has issues with unhappy citizens. More all the time. The drop in Oil is a huge cause.

He should have never made the deal to begin with face it Obama was a disaster on the world stage he made America weaker. All you libs care about was you felt his policies made us liked in the world but you never looked at the facts. it's not that we were liked it was that we were weaker on the world stage that they liked big difference.

So Obama used money to prevent a nuclear standoff and Trump threatens to destroy a country full of innocent people with fury and fire.

And you don't see the difference that has made for our national and world security?

North Korea continues to make Trump look like an impotent dotard but Trump claims to have a bigger button and call him names and he believes Putin would never lie to us.

That there is some awesome diplomacy bro.

And exactly how does Humpy Trumpy escalating tensions with threats of a nuclear holocaust while getting his butt humped by Putin make us look stronger?

He's not escalating anything. He's just not aiding and abetting them (giving them time and resources) to get to the point that they can actually accomplish the the goals they keep telling us they want to acomplish...the destruction of the West. Specifically the USA.
