That's OK - I hear the guy in charge when underwear man lit his junk on fire, is still employed, "trying to roll up an entire network, not just one guy". He "has is eyes on them".

As ROTC Kevin Bacon said in 'Animal House' - "Remain calm, all is well".

Did Trump see this coming, and is about to pull a rope a dope?

So...
I'm not super intelligent on global politcs it seems.

France wants to piss an moan about the US 'backing off' - yet, they dontseem all that willing to step up - and this is going onin THEIR back yard. Other folks in the region just want to bluster and posture about us "getting out of the war business"

Yet, France is quick to say that a USwithdraw would cause a French drawown as well.
US pullout bad, France pullout good? Is that the message? So - if the USA doesnt help protect the European Union then the European Union is going to refuse to protect themselves out of spite?

Why?

I det it - Germany and Franccehave pressured Turkey by withdrawing a few arms deals - but why cant they put a few more troops on the ground to protect their own neighborhood? It's becuse they want tp pander to their voters just ike we pander to ours. At what point does the US say enough is enough?

Foriegnpolicy should focus on US interests - not making friends. If we foucs on US interests, it makes people WANT to be our friends. People that let "friends" take advantage of them dont have friends, they have parasites. Enough is enough



...asking for friend

And the fake news already begins:

ABC News Broadcasts Fake Syria Bombing Video That's Actually From a Kentucky Military Show in 2017

Quote:
ABC News aired a video on Sunday that host Tom Llamas said depicted a Turkish attack in northern Syria against Kurdish civilians. Turkey is indeed pushing into Syria and slaughtering Kurds along the way, but the video ABC News played last night is from a military gun demonstration in Kentucky that was published to YouTube in 2017.

“This video, right here, appearing to show Turkey’s military bombing Kurd civilians in a Syrian border town,” Llamas said on the October 13 broadcast as the video played.

You can see the people filming it with cellphones in the original.

This snippet is spot on. I am using this line in the future.

I have a feeling that they will not want to release those assets, and will claim they need them to protect themselves against a nuclear capable Iran. We have yet to do anything really with regards to Iran's nuclear R&D, which makes us somewhat feckless on the worldwide front.

Waaaay back in 1898 "Remember the Maine" was the yellow journalism battle cry that helped lead the USA into the Spanish American War.

No real evidence that Spain sank it as an act of war - one investigation a hundred years after the event suggested it was an explainable coal fire that detonated a powder bunker - but that narrative wouldn't help Joew Pulitzer sell newspapers.
besides, come on dude, that happened like, 120 years ago.
Why bother.




Whats going on today with Syria and the POTUS and telling stories of ethnic cleansing by using staged explosions from inside the United States wont sell an anti-Trump CNN profitable narrative.


...but hey, OrangeManBad

They even had another fuck up recently when one of their agiprop actors supposedly was holding her dead kid and whining in their durka language about Turks killing her husband and how “she was there to bury her dead child”. Funny thing is that the kid in the video blinks 3 or 4 times. People then obviously put it together that the literally drugged a toddler to make a fucking propaganda piece.

“Muh Kurds”

Does anyone have a legit progress report on Turkey in syria? Debka's actually rings most true, I think, but 50% of what they write is crap.

Apparently, there is some US show of force. Here's a link from today's POTUS'S press briefing. I like his statement on US troops. Also, santions. Rich guys know how to hurt folks with money.

US military uses 'show of force' to disrupt Turkish-backed fighters in Syria

Just reading this article so I Copied & paste just the first couple of lines. Link attached

Russian mercenary forces have begun sweeping in to fill a security void left by withdrawing U.S. troops in northern Syria, with a video online showing the Moscow-backed mercenaries taking control Tuesday of what was previously an American military outpost.

How is this for a fantasy:

Assad's Russia backed troops put a stop to the Turkish advance. Turkey attacks Assad's forces. Russia commences bombardment of Turkish forces. Erdogan invokes Article V of NATO treaty. "Ha, ha, ha", says Trump, laughing. Turkey leaves NATO, attempting to form its own alliance with regional interests. Russian tanks pour through the caucus mountains. Putin Makes Istanbul Constantinople Again.

Apparently all they have to do is load them on C-5's at Incirlik and fly them on out. They are just the gravity bomb types in a bunker there.
