Syria review, Gorsuch

The Syrian mess the morning after
Upon further review there are couple of things that strike about the Syrian action taken by PDJT.  The first shocker was the speed with which PDJT took action.  Gone was the usual 3 and ½ years of posturing, begging for a UN resolution, notifying congress who then notify the press of everything being planned and debating military operation in the press.

Next was the relative support from Dopes and the MSM.

Last was the, after discovering that they offered a good word to PDJT, the MSM backtracking.  Idiot in the extreme, Lawrence Larry O’Donnell actually opined that Putin ordered Assad to gas his own people so that trump could bomb the crapola out of Assad’s air force.  Wow Larry that’s like cueing up a combo 8 ball shot that calls for jumping one of the opponent’s balls to strike one of your own after a double bank to knock the 8 ball into the corner pocket to lose the game.   

Well Larry, I’m as big a fan of a good conspiracy theory as anyone.  I’ll see your BS theory and raise you one.  Not only did the Russian’s do everything you theorize they did, they actually convinced Assad to start a civil war six years ago knowing they could swing the 2016 election from the desired seasoned establishment’s preferred candidate who was a prohibitive favorite right up until 9 pm on Election Night to political neophyte.  Only then did they put Phase II of their plan into effect to give their chosen candidate a chance to flex his military muscle thereby impressing the American electorate and the world.    

These Russians are amazing.  That’s why they have ruled the world for the 300 years.  Right Larry?

The only bit of truth in any of that is that the intended target of PDJT's action was the world, not just Assad.

Just win baby
I am not opposed to bombing the crapola out of Shrillda the Hutt’s favorite “reformer” Bashar Assad.  I’m not opposed to shooting down Russian aircraft if they interfere with said bombing the crapola out of Assad.  I’m not opposed to putting more ground troops in into Syria a la McCain and Grahmnesty.  What I’m opposed to is introducing US forces into a mess and then not letting them win.  Putting them into Iraq and then letting Iranians blow them up willy-nilly with no consequences other than receiving pallets of cash and a green light to develop nuclear weapons authorized by a feckless dope is not a winning military strategy. 

For me military actions boil down to an Al Davis philosophy:  When it comes to the use of military force – just win baby.   If you are not in it to win it, stay home.

Grosuch takes a seat
Judge Gorsuch will be sworn in as an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court today.  That event alone may make my vote for PDJT worth it.  We may have avoided the abyss for now thanks to PDJT’s appointment.

As anyone familiar with this page knows, I am no fan of anyone associated with Caligula, D.C.  That said, I must give Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell credit.  Not only did he pull off the nuclear option, something I was only about 60-40% sure that he could or would do, but his effort went all the way back to blocking The Empty Suit’s nomination Merritt Garland.  That was an effort I was pretty sure the Rat establishment Republicans were going to cave on after the Billy Bush tape made the 2016 election a foregone conclusion for the Hutt. 

So, giving credit where credit is due, hats off to one time Lex Man of the Year award winner Mitch McConnell.  You are the front runner so far for 2017.  It’s a long year Mitch.  Don’t screw it up.
