    Or, are you just plain stupid?
    The use of chemical weapons is a threat only to the people in the target area.

    If we considered everyone who sold weapons to our enemies to be an enemy, half of NATO would be our enemies.

    Now, now, M, you wail about Trump not being a gentleman, so its very hypocritical when you forget to pretend you have any class. Funny as [email protected] when it happens, though.
    Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

Do you honestly think that that's an accurate appraisal of US-Russia relations, that we're headed to war? We disagree, we differ, our interests come into conflict, but we are not enemies. Does that mean that VV Putin is "benign," or especially trustworthy? Does that mean that Pres Trump's handling of our affairs with Russia is beyond reproach? Certainly not -- but I sure as sht don't want to be headed into any war with Russia.

      And if you had any brains, you'd agree.
      Thank you. Saves me the trouble of pointing out the obvious. Russia is simply not the threat to U.S. interests that she once was. Some hear abouts do not seem to grasp that. She is a threat to the Baltics and a few other small nations that share frontiers, but I think Russia is too weak even to take Poland.

      Democrats have taken a dislike to Russia (in general) and Putin (in particular), because she/he embarrassed their icon of greatness and are looking for someone other than themselves to explain away their defeats in the 2016 elections.

        My worst jump story:
        My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
        As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
        No lie.

          I think Russia is a serious threat to the U.S. in both Europe and Asia. Anyone who doesn't see it is as big a fool as Obama or Clinton.

            Would you have a problem with a an independent commission being established to get all the facts out?

              Do you believe that is OK?

              And the Russians are backing Assad's play...
              The issue is that the so called rebel groups have AQ type connections...and that is a total put off for me.

              There are good peaceful people who support Assad....and there are good peaceful people who oppose Assad.


              A recent Presidential election in Syria monitored by countries included the free and democratic "western" South Africa...showed that Assad receive 75%+ of the vote.

                  Not at all, so long as the commission is chosen by GOP leadership.

                    So you choose Russians over your own countrymen just because you disagree with them politically.

                    That is monstrous.

                    Perhaps you should relocate to Russia? Or perhaps North Korea or Iran?

                    Good luck with that.

                        You're the one more worried about Syrians (who have been hostile to the USA for decades) dying but show zero concern for Americans in Detroit and Chicago being killed.

                        Your disloyalty to the USA has been in plain view ever since your candidate failed to carry the day.

                        Once again, you are quick to accuse others of what you are openly guilty of doing...

                          You are clearly are happy with no moral compass whatsoever, but that does not mean all of us have abandoned the light.

                            You're a false accuser and you are misrepresenting what I have said to cover your own disloyal comments.

                            I'd continue here, but that would be akin to being cruel to a dumb animal.

                              Its cute when you try to waffle your way out of a faux pas, M.

                              Your lack of knowledge, education, and morals is offset by the humor you bring to so many on this board.

                              Here's an idea: post more threads wailing about Trump. Specifically, one within the next twenty hours.

                              Seriously.

                              And then a total of three or more by Monday. This is very important.

                                Including McCain? How do you keep it unbiased like the 911 Commission if the only choosers are from one party?
