    When you watch one too many movies and choke on blind patriotism, you develop allergies at any truth staring at you

    I was about to respond then I recalled you can’t wait to kick me out so you’re baiting me. Nice try

    US burnt 1 trillion in Afghanistan and still lost out to Talibans

    More talking points. If we went in and unleashed our full military on them at once there would not be a taliban left.

    It is historically foolish to imagine any nation is invincible. God can take down a nation in an instant.
    If we observe the fall of the Roman Empire, we can see similar trends in the US culture. Hedonism has increased. Sexual perversion has increased. "Rome" parties while it burns...
    That being said, God also kept the Roman Empire powerful for 500 years. God has a role for the US and it will be used exactly as God wills.

    he also have a plan for Syria and that’s why Assad resisted Western imperialism.

    and I forgot to mention He has even better plans for Talibans as well

    The only question is how much destruction are we willing to unleash.
    If we so chose, we could eliminate Iran from the face of the Earth in mere minutes.

    Neither you nor I know God's plans for the nation's. We know the outcome results in Jesus return and the complete submission of all the earth to the King of Kings.

    you’d have to get past Russia and you know too well there is nothing in the world you can ever do against Russia. Russia said Assad was going nowhere and he went nowhere.

    Russia supplied S400s to Turkey and sent US’ fake stealth F35s back home because US knew they would be shot out of the air

    Knowing the outcome, that Jesus is returning as King of Kings over all nation's is know through Scripture.
    We know that all kingdoms of men are in rebellion against God. All nation's will be toppled by God when he no longer is using them for his ultimate outcome.
    Your idea about the US is insignificant in that God will use the US for its appointed season, just as he uses every nation in a similar fashion.

    Russia is not willing to fight over Iran. You put much faith in an unproven AA system. We can knock the batteries out.

    Just as the F35. Has it been tested against a formidable AA?

    Anyway, Pentagon was not as optimistic as you are and that’s why they kicked Turkey out of the F35 program.

    All said, Russia has frustrated US in Syria and that should tell you something. Iran,with China and Russia firmly behind it will never fall to the US.

    The other thing you miss is modern warfare dynamics. The US had every advantage over Talibans and they got nowhere. Iran could simply supply Hezbollah cruise missiles and let the chips fall where they may. Is Israel ready for that seeing how they panic over katushya Stone Age toys? I’m saying a rattled Iran would simply light up all of ME,and trust me nobody wants that. Iran is not falling any time soon.

    History has meny powerful nations being overthrown by much smaller states. Babylon by Media/Persia, Persia by Greece, Greece by a small city, Rome, Rome by the Goths,
    In more modern times the Finns stood up against the Soviet Union and although they lost 10% of their territory, they kept their independence, they made a mistake of joining |Hitler to try to get their land back. The Taliban defeated the SU in Afgan, then the SU collapsed.

    No nation is invincible.

    How ignorant and/or dismissive you are of the scriptures!
    The demonic alliance, that you apparently either support or idolize, had it's destruction prophesied over 2,500 years ago. The glory shall not be America's. God has reserved to himself, both the glory of the destruction of the wicked Gog-Magog alliance, and the sanctification of His people Israel. The Gog-Magog folly, shall magnify the nation of Israel, exactly opposite of what is in their wicked hearts.

    Trump fans need to hear this because they were already fantasizing how US would hammer Iran. It's funny watching "ChristisnC" cheer mindless war
