    I don't know, but it wouldn't surprise me. He met with some. Dang, life was so simple during the cold war, us vs. them.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    You know how I feel about what Americans think during times like these.
    I don't suppose Putin is too concerned about what his people think in an opinion poll either--neither should Obama.
    And Putie doesn't have warhawks and isolationists from both parties biting at his heels either does he ?

Iran is also on Miliki's side and we don't like Iran one bit and are trying to stop them getting nukes. Then there is the financial support of our supposedly allies going to ISIS, Saudi, Kuwait and Qatar. Now if Putin is indirectly back Miliki through Syria and Assad, what the heck is going on here?

    Perhaps we should just stay out entirely or at least until this mess makes a bit more sense. By the way here is the latest Gallup Poll on Iraq.

    Doing nothing seems what the majority of Americans want.

    Are you suggesting things haven't changed since that 1994 video?

    Does you mind ever change as variables in your life change, or are you stuck on all the same thoughts you had 8 years earlier?

    The problem is that there have been so many "thems" added since then, that it's difficult to find enough days in the week to keep them all straight - not to mention the fact that alliances keep shifting, so one is never sure if they're hating the right people on any given day!

    Greetings, Pero.

    Don't you have it the other way around Lord?
    That the media pundits often only know what the left tells them.

    And for the right also--as I see rebroadcast each day.

    Neither would I-thats par for the course there. Incidentally, there is interesting viewing and discussion here. Syrian Uprising - Photos & Videos - no discussion, no conversation - Page 1236

    The discussion threads often have locals involved in the fighting making comments that no media source can effectively convey. Often, the events covered there become western news days later.

    Which is why they are surprised that there are WMD's in Iraq, and think that posting Young Turks makes their case.
