I’m not under any illusions...the whole of our government is rotten to the core...and every branch of that poisonous tree...
US quietly invades Syria
the number of people whose lives have been ended or ruined by being maimed in these conflicts, wars and manipulated rebellions, does not even begin to register in the human mind.

Too many people don't understand it or don't care. It's coming home to roost though.

Sounds like what Russia did with Crimea......
Only if the US troops annex a large part of Syria, which they are not going to do. Therefore nothing like Crimea. Nice try.
A small number of US personnel have operated in Syria for sometime. It ain't news. Killing off ISIS to protect Iraq. Many nations have deployed air-power to that end. Almost certainly unwittingly done Assad a favour.

Has you NOT supporting them ever changed anything?? Your families non support? Your friends? co-workers??
Thought not. Our support is irrelevant. Unless we build ourselves to be successful and wealthy and setup our heirs with a plan and resources to become leaders of the future, it really does not matter how we feel. We will always just play follow the leader whether we like or agree with it or not.
SO, go USA, # # up wherever and whenever we can, because I would rather be stable at home, than have others repeat the formula here. The human condition baby, you got to love it. We could have sat out of both world wars, and eventually we would simply be answering to the Russians, Chinese, or Germans by now, instead of us keeping them on their toes. Better believe it, and come to terms with it.

Turkey invading is going to draw in the Iranians to protect Assad................... Bingo USA is there to chop the head off the snake. It's all about Iran, or at least that's the only conclusion I got to today as I'm stumped what's going on out there. All the big players getting their bit of the Middle East. It's all reminiscent of the scramble for Africa back in the day

Stop voting for steaming piles of greedy warmongering s# just because you didn't like the other steaming pile of greedy warmongering s# because of party affiliation.
Assuming people in this country have any goddamn brain cells smashing together whatsoever between their ears, they'll scrutinize every candidate from here out before they vote to keep the status quo they adore bitching about. Don't like what the government does abroad? VOTE BETTER. See, this change in voting behavior works like saving f#ing pennies -- they add up to useful change.
