@cicerone imposter,
I'm embarrassed, and I'm pissed. Why has this country chosen to venerate false gods. Isn't life difficult enough, we need to vote these frauds into office?

Let's just remind ourselves of how Lash started this thread.

Lash wrote:

Who or whatever was a roadblock to sensible foreign policy has been removed from Obama's sphere of influence. Finally, he's doing the right thing.


This isn't the first time Assad has used chemical weapons on children. It's good to know that Lash thinks supporting someone who commits this sort of atrocity is "doing the right thing."

Assad is doing this because he knows he's going to get away with it. Putin is far too committed to propping him up and despite Trump's platitudes and hand wringing, his default position is to lick Putin's arse.

@izzythepush,
Trump can't show his admiration for Putin one day, then reverse himself on another. Trump does't know how to admit he made a mistake. He's beholding to his own self image - good or bad.

@cicerone imposter,
Assad is a monster there can be no lasting peace in Syria while he's in charge. He let most of the IS leadership out of prison right at the beginning of the uprising just so he could discredit the opposition. Tactically he's a bloody genius, and now he's got both Putin and Trump dancing to his tune.

The longer this goes on the more likely ordinary Sunni Muslims are going to start seeing IS as the lesser of two evils.

Although the Obama administration was loath to intervene militarily in Syria after the government's first gas attack against its own people, they would have gone in with the support of the US Congress and asked for their support, so the admin. went to them. It was clear that the Congress what with its own loathing for intervention and its obstructionist approach to the Obama administration would not have supported him, so he dropped the plan.

In retrospect, a no-fly zone would have resulted in a stalemate between the rebels and the Syrian government but it would have prevented more attacks from Assad against civilians and it would possibly have assisted the rebels in countering ISIS advancements in that area of Syria.

@InfraBlue,
It looks like Trump sees the truth that Assad has "NO PLACE" in Syria

@farmerman,
The problem with Trump is we don't know what his words really means. He lies so often, he lies upon his lies.

@cicerone imposter,
And we don't know what Putin has on him, and he's got something alright.

@farmerman,
How he will deal with that truth is the million dollar question right now.

Probably quite a bit on Trump's dealings with foreign countries.

Ostensibly in the least, Trump and Putin are mapping out a ceasefire. Safe zones discussed.

Wow, this is great, lets make Putin the ruler of the US and none of will ever need to vote again. Do you think before you write? You must be a world history expert.

@glitterbag,
We will still have to vote. It will be required, but the choices will be limited.
