What is the title of the thread?
  


"Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure (and) which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments."

There's also the minor issue of chemical weapons being classified as WMD, which was the justification we used to pre-emptively attack Iraq.  Their use inevitably inflicts grievous death and injury on civilians.

The chemical weapons? Or the justification for the attack?

Just kidding..

But yeah, I guess this is a time when consistency might be a liability.

I wouldn't entirely disagree, but what Tillerson proposed goes a little beyond that.

Seems like Mattis is walking back Tillerson's claims and talking about drawing down US troops there, as well as a limited focus on ISIS (Source).

Syria is critical to Russia as it is a seawater port for their navy in the Med.  That is not going to change.

US military officials tell me 500 pro-regime fighters armed w/ artillery, mortars & tanks attacked US/Syrian Democratic Forces base east of Euphrates River. US counterattacked w/ air/artillery strikes, killing 100 regime fighters. Regime's suspected objective was nearby oil field

Defense Secretary Mattis responds to pro-regime attacks on US-backed Forces HQ in Syria: “We are not getting involved in the Syrian Civil War”

Uh... kinda seems like we are (not to mention Tillerson said it was one of the reasons US troops will remain).

It'll be over soon. It can't take forever to clean up Obama's messes.

We're just going to repeat different mistakes.


What are you posting this for? A military parade is a much more important thing to be concerned about right now.
