    How is that strategy working out for the world in the Ukraine and the Middle East?

    I agree it's for show, but hey, some jihadists are going to die. That's always a good thing.

    If Obama meant business, he would have zapped these clowns months ago.

    It is like I said many times, I do not think anyone in Washington has every thought what a post Assad Syria will be like. It is like everyone in Washington has tunnel vision and can only see Assad, nothing else.
    Syria has been subsidizing Hamas and Hezbollah for years.

    Greetings, AP.

    So good to see you! - has your Summer been a good one?

    I don't understand the phrase "going quiet for 96 hours."

    Good evening pg, and yes, it has. When forces are deployed there is a time period when there is no contact with anyone outside of their chain of command while they are briefed and prepare to depart on the mission...
