    Great. Now literally anyone who doesn't drink the kool aid is a Russian asset. Even a long-time Democratic former service member who was elected in Hawaii.

    I guess McCarthy references before might've been a little hyperbolic. Now they're being 100% earned.

    Tulsi Gabbard 2020 = Jill Stein 2016. No realistic chance of winning, but could possibly have an effect on the outcome of the election regardless, if running as a third-party candidate intended to split the vote. Given Gabbard's popularity with Republicans (not so much with Democrats) this ploy could backfire on Putin.

    No offense, but this is the ultimate in chicken **** foreign policy. Any nation state willing to take on US forces directly anywhere need to be brought to heel.

    If Turkey believed we had this resolve, our forces would be secure. It's only the mind-numbing cowardice or I guess ignorance in leadership that made this kind of Turkish bluff possible. Folding with the world's strongest hand will only ensure more of the same in the future.

    Chamberlainism at its finest. Never thought I'd see the day from "Republican" (scare quotes intended) leadership.
    Obama sent our troops into Syria on a failed mission. It had zero chance to succeed -- and so was doomed from the start. Trump made the right call to get them out of there.

    Comparing Trump to Chamberlain is hilarious. So, if Trump is Chamberlain, who is Hitler?

    If he's going to edit your crap, being a lunatic is a necessary qualification.

    Of course.
    We can say his name. The "lunatic" who edits Foreign Policy Journal is Jeremy Hammond, peace activist and author.

    For the record, Noam Chomsky was effusive in his praise for Hammond's 2016 book about the failure of Mideast peace initiatives. (see the cover below) But of course W*gs could care less about the real systemic problems that peacemakers face in our world. Real problems such as Israel's vice grip on US Mideast policy. Don't take my word for it. Read Hammond's book

    Here is one of the five star reviews posted at Amazon....

    This articulate volume shows in well-documented detail how the US has colluded with Israel in blocking peace with the Palestinians. The unanswered question is why? Now we need a volume two that covers the 2014 Gaza war to the present. Hammond is a resourceful journalist who uncovers important facts previously undisclosed by a biased mainstream media.

    I understand your perspective. It's a matter of cost. What are you willing to pay? What is the US willing to pay? You also have to acknowledge that the US started the problem in the first place. We created and armed ISIS to begin with or otherwise we would not have been there.
    “You were given the choice between war and dishonour. You chose dishonour and you will have war.”

    Mostly that simple.

    I would pay at least a border wall. Since it’s a matter of cost how much is your life worth Garcia?
