  • The Russians Have Delusions of Grandeur...

    Who ought to get out of Syria is the Russians. And they should stop their supply of arms to the Taliban in Afghanistan:

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world...cid=spartandhp
    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.

    Considering the US has military personnel in over 150 countries, this thread is quite humorous...

        What I enjoy is the use of MSN as a source.
        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.

          Why ? Because you are saying so ?

          Afaics, Syria is an independent state who invites whom it wants .

          Because of the Russian presence in Syria, ISIS failed to occupy this country, maybe that's the reason why Massena wants them to leave .

          One will notice that Massena is not saying that Iran must leave Syria .

            The alternative was to use CNN as source,which is six of one and half a dozen of the other .

              Appeasement never ends.

                What's wrong with Mostly Suspicious News these days? Isn't that how all of it's getting anyway?

                  Cool, Pavlov in full swing.

                  ASTANA (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin’s envoy for Syria said on Thursday that there was no reason for U.S. forces to remain in Syria and that Washington’s stated reasons for maintaining a military presence there were groundless.
                  Even funnier if one realizes that those responding are the same who previously claimed that the US shouldn't be there at all.

                  Really, far too easy......

                    Let me explain it for you in very simple terms:

                    US bombing Syria: waste of my taxes.

                    Russia bombing Syria: a good thing, because they are wasteing their resources.

                    You see, the USA and Russia are two separate nations (and this part is important) with separate and different agendas.

                    So just because we say one thing about one, does not make it true for both.

                    Now, if you explanations for the terms 'nation', 'agenda', or 'taxes' you will need to rely on the charity of others.
