    This seems like a bad idea.

    Upon rejecting the Beatles, Dick Rowe told Brian Epstein of the January 1, 1962 audition for Decca, which signed Brian Poole and the Tremeloes instead.

    Default Syria

    Myboynoah, you know much more about foreign policy than I probably ever will, but count me as one of those people that is sick of US intervention in the Middle East. I honestly don't believe that "peace" is possible in that region.

    Putin ally said to be in touch with Kremlin, Assad before his mercenaries attacked U.S. troops

    This is pretty chilling. Obama opens the door for Russia to get on the ground in Syria and now Russian mercenaries attack our U.S. troops after coordinating with Moscow. Of course, they're mercenaries, so Putin can deny involvement.

    Not surprisingly, the Russians got their asses kicked. Guys, you're not in Ukraine.

    Russia is our friend!! Obama’s weakness on all things Russia tarnishes his legacy to a degree. Hey at least we have a more solid crew in there now. Speaking of that. I haven’t heard Huntsman’s name in the news since he got that gig.

    Withdraw U.S. troops from Syria. Problem solved. There is no authorization for U.S. forces to be in Syria.

    How old is the authorization for use of force that we're using anyway?

    Pro-Assad official says targeted bases were evacuated on Russian warning


    The Syrian government and its allies have absorbed a U.S.-led attack on Saturday and the targeted sites were evacuated days ago thanks to a warning from Russia, a senior official in a regional alliance that backs Damascus said.

    “We have absorbed the strike”, the official told Reuters.

    “We had an early warning of the strike from the Russians ... and all military bases were evacuated a few days ago,” the official said. Around 30 missiles were fired in the attack, and a third of them were shot down, the official said.

    This is Walter's time to shine as a principled isolationist. He probably has a whole file of drone strike victims.
