Yup, you keep buying that hobart. Trump's totally honest, never impulsive, and couldn't possibly make decisions that are driven by political posturing.

As I said, it's a shame we have to even wonder about his specific timing. I'm not coming to any conclusion, though, as it seems to me that it was going to happen at some point, and it at least it was a coordinated attack.

I don't have an issue with the choice, indeed it was apparently what Mattis advocated against Trump's desire to do more, so good for Trump for listening. We can only hope that the 'message' was taken more seriously than last year's action.

But "Mission accomplished" is remarkably off script. But Trump simply can't help himself from self-congratulation.

Wasn't that the same message delivered last April when the same thing occurred? That attack apparently did not deter Assad from doing it again as will this attack.


Add to this the clueless WH Press secretary tweets out a picture today of DOPUS and staff meeting to decide on Syria actions - only problem is the photo shows VP Pence at the meeting which could not have occurred Thursday night or Friday as he was in Peru for the Americas summit.

I believe the actions taken won't deter Assad from killing his own people.Ya' can't make Vampires, vegetarians.The calming influences of the Brits and the French and the sanity displayed by Gen.Matt is (keeping Trump out of the decision) prevented carpet bombing the entire country.

But the NIMBY message is more subtle: "We reach high dudgeon when Syrians are gassed.We'll do anything for those poor folks.....with one exception.....the 11 Million displaced souls are not WELCOME to come to the U.K., France and certainly NOT the U.S.A.

Greenland, Namibia, Nunavut, and Mongolia, perhaps.But certainly but NOT in our collective backyards. :naughty:

Murf you may have just stated my quote for the year so far... you can't make a vampire a vegetarian. There could be some ambiguity about a strict diet of blood not falling into the cracks somewhere between vegetarian and carnivore sort of like trying to differentiate tomato juice from blood sausage... :D

Pleaz with this TAATS nonsense......raytheon stock went up $6 bucks last week. Anyone buy at last weeks low of $216 and sell when it got to $222? Doc Martin went up $10........

Guess knowledge of military strikes isn't considered against the law when "day" trading :violin:

Fatty with a rare miss. That is a total flaming dumpster fire of a cover. Maybe the Killers should aim lower and cover a song from the Pet Shop Boys, or something. (hope you had a nice weekend)

A rare miss, eh A FAN ! you must be one of those purists, like Bryan Ferry bashing Mike Bolton for covering sittin on the dock of the bay. (Ian Curtis had a lousy voice and the Killers did a fine job)

Speaking of Ferry, fatty's TAATS comment about "missle strikes" are great financial boons for what my hero General Smedley Butler warned us about all those years ago.......and IKE

Fatty's point, SAME OLD SCENE............pretends on both sides are blinded by their temporary finacial woes and allow THE KILLERS to make profits. (did Hillary really just speak at another $30K a plate democratic fundy )

Same old scene indeed......if this one is a miss, time to perish

So did James Brown. And John Lennon. And Bob Mould. If I wanted to hear technically pure singers, I'd listen to Opera. This is rock and roll, man. Of course the singers are crap....that's like the best part. :wink:

I'm not a purist at all.....but I know a crap cover when I hear one. As I said...rare miss, my man.

Have a great week. (and yes: green light on Roxy)

I don’t think John Lennon ever covered Dock of the Bay. Are you thinking of Stand By Me, which he did cover?

Don't ever remember Lennon doing Dock of the Bay. I probably would have liked it if he did, though.

I was replying to Fattylax's assertion that "Ian Curtis had a lousy voice".....and saying that Lennon, Mould, and Brown also had according-to-Hoyle "lousy voices", but implying that that's what makes 'em great.

Sorry, I misread your post.

On the subject of Lennon's voice, he came in at no. 5 in Rolling Stone's list of top 100 singers (Otis was 8, Aretha 1).

Trump has reportedly halted new sanctions against Russia

It's just head scratching the kind of kissing up Trump does to Russia after everything that's gone down. Anyone have any insight?

We were going to sanction the Russian companies that make their air defense systems, but after the results of the raid, we prefer they keep manufacturing & selling them to their allies.

Maybe we're trying to get a seat at the table with Russia, Iran & Turkey on how to end the slaughter in Syria.

I aver that I ain't very smart.That written I have a question? To whom does the U.S.Ambassador to the U.N. report? I would have imagined The Secretary of State.So who gave the green-light for Ms.Haley to tell the world about Russian sanctions? :roll:

She must have been acting unilaterally. :wink:

Doubt anyone would understand, but YOU A fan, what fatty means by taking his coffee with SUGAR :D

Point is, is the EU not as investment leaky as the US? Shadow Play missile makers/owners affiliates stock didn't go up like our "private" white collar welfare companies stock did.



(go to 1:05 for the pretends stance )

Thought almost ALL of the 9/11 hijakers were from this wonderful women loving country......moral issues indeed. We are so F'd up.

Don't recall you asking the same question about the same positioned people when the USA blamed the 9/11 Libya/Bengayzi attacks on a video.

How is our film maker? Still in jail?
