    It's also interesting to me that we're apparently at war with both sides of a civil war simultaneously. That has to be great for arms dealers $$$$
    The Syrian Civil War actually has three factions. There's the Pro-Assad group, the ISIS group, and those rebelling against Assad's tyranny.

    That said, beyond policing-but-not-policing-the-world, there's no real reason for us to be involved.

    which breaks into a dozen or more major factions and countless smaller ones.

    Just finished 4 1/2 hours at the Lincoln Museum in Springfield. Was a little embarrassed at times to tear up in response to some of the information and exhibits. The divisions in the country are hard to contemplate, even now. 1.3 million deaths in 5 years, including his own.

    And I will head over to my hotel, where I will turn on the television to hear more of what our fu ckwad child leader tweeted last night.

    And the sad thing is, everyone knows Assad is a bad man, except I guess for Trump, but then he had to go ahead and gas the babies, "innocent babies, babies, little babies, with a chemical gas that is so lethal – people were shocked to hear what gas it was. That crosses many, many lines, beyond a red line, many, many lines.”
    before Trump could tear himself away from Twitter long enough to maybe decide this guy isn't such a great guy after all.

    I mean, if that's what it takes to have some kind of cognitive function occur in that spray-tanned brain of his. Now if only he could make the connection that it's his little buddy Putin pulling the strings in Syria.......................

    LOL Reuters reporting Syria just launched an air strike from the base we bombed. That's some top notch result getting.

    Also, other than Trumpy seeing some pictures of dead babies on Fox and getting the sadz, and impulsively tossing off a few dozen missiles at $1 million a pop, there's his talk about how he "isn't going to talk about what his military plans are, not gonna let his enemies know what his response will be"

    And yet, reports are before the attack, he told the Russians it was coming, who in turn alerted the Syrians, so all important equipment was spirited out of harm's way, and all the missiles hit were a few small outbuildings around the base. Not the major communications hubs, and not the airstrip itself. So what was accomplished? What objective did this strike achieve. Other than swinging his dik around and blowing some sh%t up? $60 million wasted for what purpose?

    Although that is all true, I for one want Trump to tell the Russians and the Chinese every time he's going to do some f-ckwit thing. For the next four years we have one job.

    In other news, a Kentucky coal mining museum is switching over to solar power.

    But what about all those coal-mining jobs that are coming back?

    Actually, using Saran gas might have even given the Russians pause to reconsider their alliance with Assad. It's a banned substance under international treaty. The question is whether or not Syria ever signed the treaty. If they did, like the Russians did, then we should just tell the Ruskies to get out of Syria for a few weeks while we systemically bomb each and every government owned building in the country that within Assad-occupied lands, including the official government residences.

    Normally, had this happened in some part of the world where we've not already involved ourselves, I'd say we should take no action. However, we're more or less entrenched in that quagmire, so it's time to throw some punches.

    Assad has used nerve agents before, and Putin didn't flinch then. Why would he abandon Assad now?

    Remember this? The death toll was even worse.

    I was unfamiliar with that. And there goes my hopes for Russian leadership at being anything resembling humane.

    Putin is an autocratic sociopath. He cares about nothing but his own power and wealth, and will seriously fark with anyone who gets in the way of his designs to put the Eastern Bloc back together, and in charge of the oil reserves on that side of the globe.
