Sure! We can afford that! And they still hate us!
Uhhhhhh.........If Russia is supporting, propping up, and fighting to keep Assad in position, and we are fighting, spending money, and working to take Assad down -
Doesn’t this mean we are fighting Russia?
What am I missing?
Shouldn’t that be Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Nod?
By US law this is illegal. The U.S. has a law stating we have to support a democratically elected President. When there was a coup in Thailand, even though we probably wanted it and preferred the military taking over, we couldn’t show support to the coup government because Thaskin was the democratically elected leader.
America is a rogue country right now.
We’re actually fighting everybody on behalf of radical Islam. I don’t know what’s going through Barry’s tiny mind, but this is not going to turn out well.
No Blood for Islam.
The Kenyan will probably take the $100 million out of Medicare and Social Security.

He may also take the money out of the veterans administration hospitals
The USA is giving them money for cages to put innocents in and to buy FGM surgical instruments.
Kill the terrorists now or kill them after they have done their damage.

Can’t Paul Ryno put a STOP to this?

I was an early Perot supporter. Didn’t last long, but I had this mental cartoon of the little guy storming around his desk in the Oval Office, squeaking. “Veto! Veto! We can’t afford that! Veto!”
If the “opposition” somehow defeats Assad, ISIS would defeat the “opposition” within a couple of weeks.
There is no such thing as an Islamic democracy. It is either a brutal dictator or even more brutal Jihadists.
