  1. Sorry to the Mods…didn’t know that was a moderated word. Hehehe…

    It will be interesting to see how people react at the polls to the bipartisan call for war with Turkey and or Russia? You folks do know that’s what the end result will be?

    The electorate reacted to Trump branding the Dems and some of the Repubs as the, “Swamp” by electing him. I for one see this story as absolutely another indication that he was correct. The desire for continual war by a majority of our national elected leaders is unacceptable. I hope Trump gets elected again and I hope over time those wanting to risk unneeded war with Russia and Turkey retire, lose an election, etc.

    We have consensus in our Congressional leaders. They just agree to do what the majority of the public elected them not to do. “Let them eat cake!”

  3. All the hoopla and Kabuki theater is just unwarranted in this case.
    According to the Pentagon’s latest briefing release, of the 1,000 US troops stationed within Syria only 50 were along the border with turkey. Trump simply repositioned these troops, they never left Syria. Any relocation just moved them out of harm’s way as Turkey acts independently in its incursion of Syria.
    The removal of those 50 troops hardly paved the way for Turkey to invade Syria.

    The Oracle
