  • "Recapturing Palmyra: The story and the spin"

    Just to repeat what I wrote under comments at Al-Jazeera:

    American liberal media protects Obama from negative coverage and suppresses any news that make Obama look bad. Russian successes in Syria make Obama look extremely bad.

    He is exposed as a weak, defeatist president who is afraid to succeed against ISIS and doesn't have faith in the US armed forces. The problem with a defeatist commander in chief is that people like that infect all their subordinates with defeatism and defeatism quickly trickles down the ranks, demoralizing the military.

    The famous American WWII general George Marshall wrote in his papers that a defeatist commander is like metastatic cancer that infects all others around him with defeatism. He wrote that leaders like that must be hunted down and immediately removed from command before they damage the armed forces.

    But how do you remove a defeatist if he's the President of the United States?

    MZ - Things are a hell of a sight more complex than most folks takes and understanding of what is going on in that area of the world. Putin is no 'white knight', and I recommend you also look at some of the stuff Obama has come out with over the last ten years or so to get a flavour of where he sits in the scheme of things.

    There is a multiple layered, interactive, overt and covert, convoluted manipulation of politics and 'religion', into which the various militaries and militias get sucked and tossed.

        That's why this forum is fun because you can comment and share ideas. Would you like to turn this forum into Pokemon trading cards or something?
