Watching this, I’m amazed how much I forgot. Just those names bring up so many awful memories. But you’re right. We’ve forgotten.

As appalling as I find the Muslim invasion from N Africa on Europe, none of this is new other than the West enabling it.

Turkey, the gate keepers to the west are up to no good.

Obama and Hillary have it on fire real good...

Agree with you completely on both parts. Turkey has become a very nasty actor in all this, and seems to have the potential to be the flame that lights a fuse. And the matches were gleefully provided by the old administration.

Here's what they got. Totally worth the cost and the risk.

I was “in the area” at the time

Now we are back.

Just received a call from one of my buddies, I’ll see him Sat.
He said he just watched a film called “12 Strong” and was disappointed

It’s never the way you remember it
