  1. Might be a good thing, actually. Better a bunch of Russian boys getting killed in a war than American boys. Could take some luster off of Putin’s shining star when the coffins start showing up back in the Rodina, too…

  2. obama on the golf course drawing another red line after all the others have been crossed.

    Leader of the free world?
    obama is no leader, we aren’t free from overbearing government intrusion or loss of liberty.

  3. Ain’t it kinda funny that just a few years ago Bashar Assad was a “moderate” who protected the Christian and Jewish minorities of Syria, but now is busy killing everyone?

    Ain’t it kinda funny that Bashar Assad never used chemical weapons on ISIS until they were smuggled out of Libya and distributed to the moslem bros.?

    Ain’t it kinda funny that Bashar Assad is OPPOSING ISIS and thus gained the ire of Obola, et. al.?

    Is it possible our “gov’t” is lying to us?

  4. For shame! How can you suspect our government of lying to us? Were they lying to us in the 1980s when they said Saddam Hussein was a friend of the United States because he was in a war with Iran? Were they lying to us in the 1990s when they said Saddam Hussein was an enemy of the United States because he invaded Kuwait and threatened Saudi Arabia and our oil supply? The answer in both cases is “yes”. And also “no”. Truth is relative when it comes to international politics, just like “friendships” are.
    He who is our great ally today may be our despised adversary tomorrow, and vice versa. Expedience is the name of the game, and national survival is the paramount goal. Nothing else matters, and anyone who believes otherwise is either ignorant or a fool.

    🙂
