    What on earth has travel got to do with anything? Is travel expected to forge a particular looking and sounding product at the end of it, like some kind of industrial production line product? If so, what, and precisely who said so? What is this rather offensive - "Sad Truth" Bullshit, too?

    http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-39543202 Yet more posturing 'moral high ground' delusion from our Governments. The hypocrisy is beyond the stratosphere. Read - "The Russians have had every opportunity to back off and quit being an obstacle to our regime change program that Sunni rulers desire, in which countless gruesome deaths, civilian and otherwise, have occurred on 'our watch' by proxy in our attempt to oust Assad at all costs - backing numerous Islamist militias with their atrocities and deceptions, to achieve it. How dare the Russians have their own allies and strategic / economic links to protect like we would. Just who they hell do they think they are, the savages? " Saying - "Stop the world, I wanna get off" is so over used, but today the shoe fits.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/04/07/truck-crashes-crowd-people-stockholm/ He was a good Boy. It has nothing to do with anything. It is isolated. It is a random perplexing mystery. Carry on!

    Booting out Assad with a view to - "Insert externally located approved Government we made earlier" (aka - The Syrian National Council, in tandem with The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights) looks all well and good on paper. Battle hardened jihadists don't take kindly to 'suits' waltzing in and claiming the throne after having done damn all to gain it. It would be Libya II.

    What comes to mind for me, is : I don't think there is such a thing as surgical 'tweaking' in the Middle East. Once you dip your toe in, you're in. It opens up a can of worms / sets in motion ripples in a pond, etc. Especially given how many factions are in Syria. It explains my Admiral Akbar comment.

    "From this day forward, it's only going to be...Syria first" Is it time for an Admiral Akbar meme?
  9. Oh it's a disaster, I can't emphasize that enough. First, my long suffering Wife joined the local Social Justice Warrior faction and has now banned all mention of the words "Tucker Carlson" and "Sean Hannity" during Dinner (which she now forces me to cook because a Woman's role is no longer food preparation, she screamed), one of my Sons sneaked off to fight Jihad in Mosul under the pretense that he was just going to the movies, the other has decided that he isn't sure if he is comfortable being referred to as a he, feels that I (not the Wife, because school told him that Women are 'always' right.......until he touches down in Mosul) forced him into identifying as a Male against his wishes I had thought that a Penis and lack of a Womb was enough to qualify, but it seems I'm "misinformed" and quite the ignorant bigot gender fundamentalist. Now I have to address the - "Independent neutral being" by the correct 'pronouns', and though I thought that was the end of it, now the aforementioned I. N. B identifies as a Samoan. We had to ship in drums and culturally sensitive foods. I do my best, but being an ignorant White Male, all I know is how to prepare Fish and Chips (according to the first Son, itself an originally an Iraqi dish 'appropriated' by White Male Colonialism during WWI. Still, I do my best.

    It's the 'go to'. Guilty or not, is irrelevant for this. All you need to do is throw a spanner in the works and sit back and everyone's attention gets wrapped up in what is seen as the seediness around the question mark. We saw this against Trump during the campaigning, one instance where the usual artillery failed to achieve effect. Now the new one is the protracted "Russia" thing. Delay is the key here. Drag this out as long as you can manage, to keep the waters muddy. 😄
