On Syria

Kinda need to go back and review why the USA was even involved there.   (if you need a reminder think Ukraine, Libya, etc.)    The cia/mic approved Presidents are why.

Re: On Syria

Actually, back in The Memory Hole there was a time when Saddam kept Iran pinned in and we kept Saddam pinned in, cheaply and efficiently.

Then Saddam attacked us on 9/11 and was making WMD's (anthrax!!!!!) like crazy.

Fortunately people who voted for Ron Paul aren't responsible for anything.

It is like confession, baptism and communion all rolled into one.

Re: On Syria

Did you realize you made my point?

So why did you want the USA to overthrown Gaddafi,  Assad?

nutz can wave his blood shirt all he wants to against a guy that actually spent almost two years fighting in the middle east and honestly asks the question....how many American lives is this worth?

Nutz? Boritz? you are not going to offer your blood or treasure.....how much more do you think America should offer?

Re: On Syria

It`s definitely worth trying to step away from being world`s policeman.  Trump warned Turkey that we`d economically punish them if they do genocide on the Kurds.  Thing is we can get right back in the mess if we want, I would say using our threat of economic muscle is cheaper and less potential for body bags and an escalation into a WWIII. 

Here`s 2 things that could happen 1. Rouge factions funded by those that want endless wars will shoot the area up to "prove President Trump wrong".  2. It will work beautifully and then you won`t hear a damned thing about it in the media.   Kind of comical listening to the limp wrists on Public Radio all of a sudden turning into George w Bush warhawks now that Trump is pulling out...if Obama did it "oh what a greeeat man pure statesmanship!".

Re: On Syria

BA, Trump is right on just about every issue...the opposition is wrong on everything.

You point that out, and the best they can come back with is a character attack on someone.

Pretty limp wristed.

At what price, Bruce?

what should be the endgame, what price is too much, and how many dead Americans is too many?

Obama blew up a lot of functioning countries.....he was like GW Bush in spades.
