    Always know when you hit close to home. It’s their fears of being defeated.

      not at all juicy – it’s what people who are bombed by total money mongering strangers tend to do – get even. The folks over there are not going to be defeated by any pathetic coalition composed of 80+% us stuff, some french jets and a bunch of mealy mouthed arab states – it aint gonna happen.

    … and the first wurm turns…

    Did anyone in the ol’ Pentagon Planning Room happen to note that rebel groups are cheek-by-jowl in Syria these days, and that none of them are marking their positions and identities with flags or signs?

    Let’s see now, what could possibly go wrong, with trying to bomb “only” the one type of rebel… but not the others?

    Once again, we have TRUSTED people we really should no longer be trusting. I refer to those who’ve led us to think that we can attack ISIS, while NOT attacking other groups…

    I guess we naively thought they would understand we were bombing them for a “good” reason… Don’t they LIKE being Collateral Damage? What’s “wrong” with them?

    Gee, I guess I’ll just trot off to my nearest Reich Wing Media Outlet, for the “real scoop” on this one…
