    How many precious American lives were spent in the Stan? In Iraq? Still no one cares.

      Well, already has plenty of background on This Is Fine Dog 😀

      I’m looking for the original source of the assertion that we sent troops west of Raqqa to deter Russian/Syrian/whatever troops. The tweet above includes a WaPo URL, but it’s truncated. The parent tweet from @andrewsweiss shows no link, and the grandparent tweet from @Tmgneff has already been pushed off the bottom of the page.

      I searched for WaPo articles about Green Berets, Raqqa, and the Russians authored by this Gibbons-Neff fellow but got nothing.

  4. To paraphrase from a classic movie.
    “I sure picked the wrong week to quit smoking.”

    The “lesser of two weasels” I was hoping to not Poke The Bear apparently didn’t listen to my hopes.
    Guess I should have hoped in my hand to fill it up…

  5. Starting to look like Trump is more of the same-old, same old. At some point people are going to wise up about what is going on.

    • gee, ya think? Half the cogniscenti here thought he was the ‘ril thang. Some still think so. Not for much longer, though.

        And for how much longer before the American people wake up and fill their hands with some iron?…………………didn’t think so.

  6. WaPo? Owned by Bezos who has a $600 million contract with the CIA. Must be legit. Looks more like sandbagging to me. ‘Officials say ….’

    I can only hope we have back channel communications with Russia regarding our involvement.
