CNN is run by LIBERALS who are going full SNOWFLAKE over the fact that the Macho Man Donald Trump is starting a brave war of democracy against Iraq/Iran/etc.
They tell the stories of some LIBERAL families of soldiers who are too big of SNOWFLAKES to accept that their family members have to go and die for human rights for the courageous Islamic world.
More than 3,000 service members are set to be deployed to the Middle East as tensions rise following the killing of an Iranian general by the United States.
That means thousands of families — spouses, children and siblings — were separated from their loved ones — some without notice. Many of them are from the Immediate Response Force of the 82nd Airborne Division in Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
The head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards’ Quds Force, Qasem Soleimani, was killed Friday by a US airstrike ordered by President Donald Trump.
Melissa Morales, 18, told CNN her twin sister, Cristina, was back home visiting in Victorville, California, when she was notified Friday she would be deploying Wednesday. Victorville is about 100 miles northeast of Los Angeles.
“She kind of took it as a joke the night before because of the memes on Twitter,” Morales said. The hashtag #WWIII was one of the top trends on Twitter heading into the weekend. “She wasn’t expecting to be deployed so soon,”
Morales said her sister joined the Army last summer and is now stationed at Fort Benning in Georgia. This will be her first deployment.
April Shumard’s husband was off for Christmas, but had to leave New Year’s Day along with others from the Fort Bragg Immediate Response Force, she told CNN affiliate WNCN-TV. Her husband’s birthday was Friday.
“It just happened so fast,” Shumard, 42, said. “It happens whenever it’s going to happen you can’t control it, so I think the worst part of that is when you don’t get to say goodbye.”
Sabrina Johannes is an Army wife whose husband served in Afghanistan. She’s the executive director of Deployed Love, a community of volunteers at Fort Bragg that are dedicated to making things easier for spouses and children left behind.
“The big white buses they load onto, you can ask my husband, every time I see them now I still hate them,” Johannes told CNN affiliate WRAL-TV.
I hate big buses too – but not as much as I hate terrorism in the Middle East and the threat to our nation posed by Iranian influence in Iraq.
Time to buck up, snowflakes.
