Trump needs a distraction.
But, of course, anybody in their right mind would be against American military intervention

Unlike the media I put in a retraction and clarified my statement.
Bottom line if you go 'read' about it and not find an article to fit your agenda...

No. I will not support it.
However, if we do put troops on the ground, my prediction is it will be for one of two reasons:
1) Control of the oil which IS NOT to line the pockets of oil companies but rather to further destabilize the Middle East via destabiliing the price of oil.
2) So the Russians don’t do it.
I view option 2 as less likely. The reality is, Russia is a poor country. We spend like 1/3 of their GDP (last time I looked it up) on defense alone. This is why I don’t take that threat seriously - if we got into a full scale military engagement with them we would BK them quickly - so I don’t think they have the scratch for nation building.
