      Personally i say just train up the kurds. And supply them with some AA sytems to shoot down turkish fighters that like to accidentally bomb them
      agreed. The project was always probably doomed.
      Unfortunately, it appears that we will not support the Kurds, because the Iranians (an enemy) and the Turks (a lousy ally) object to our doing so.

          General Austin sounded like a semi-functioning moron.

          We are not now that strength which in old days
          Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
          Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
          To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

              Shocking news given the aid now giving to Assad by Putin.

                Let's look at this reasonably. There isn't anything wrong with the training commander; the problem is with the Meathead-in-Chief. The training commander gets assigned Mission Impossible, train some Syrians to take over the war themselves.

                In typical fashion, the military throws money and equipment at the project based on an idiotic and unfounded estimate of how many Syrians were going to rush to do battle and the cost of setting up anything American in a Middle Eastern nation to begin with, totally ignoring the abysmal failure of the previous efforts to train Iranians to take over their own defense and the appalling lack of initiative of all but the radicalized Muslims in the first place, and guess what? BoBo's crystal balls weren't focused when the Muslim Muppet made his prediction, the Syrians are perfectly happy to let Americans or anybody else, for that matter, do the fighting and dying for them, and the whole thing - naturally - now falls on the head of the hapless training commander.

                The thing everybody has to grasp is that Islam is a fatalistic religion. The most often used statement is "inshah'allah", as Allah wills it, which means zero initiative on the part of the natives who have been inculcated since birth with the concept that everything in their world is preordained by Allah; therefore, it is foolish to struggle. If Allah wants them to be free, he will take care of it. If he wants them subjugated, that's the way the falafel folds.

                Heaven forbid the morons who made this decision to begin with should ever own up to their own stupidity, or that anyone should ever admit that non-radical Middle Eastern Muslims don't give a damn about fighting for their country because Allah has not commanded it, and the imams who should be pushing this in his name are not doing so.

                That's my take on this whole sorry affair.
