Militant Missives and Political Posturing/Old Draft Clean-Up (on aisle 7)

  • My first thought when we learned Russia had ground troops in Syria and had been conducting airstrikes? We just lost the world.
  • In an interview I just watched, President Putin correctly said to the effect, If the West is so worried about us hitting the wrong targets why don't they share their data with us?
  • Love or hate President Obama- you have to know the Russkies would not be handing us our rear ends like they are if a Bush or Reagan were President.
  • Part of the reason we got involved in a war with Iraq in 2003 was our leadership wanted a do-over to correct mistakes made in the 1993 war. Part of the reason the 2003 war went so badly was we failed to realize- the Iraqi leadership was also ready for a do-over.
  • You don't really get a lot of chances for a true do-over in war.
  • Bill Clinton is hard to not like or not trust.
  • A couple of days ago I heard Hillary Clinton talk about her roots and to the effect of how her faith informed her decisions. It seemed very disingenuous.
