Gee, awfully quiet around here. And this makes sense, especially when the Arab world is imploding as badly as it is. Not much to chat about, except perhaps how to find a Visa to the nearest western country.
Just finished watching the 60 Minutes segment about ISIS. King Abdullah of Jordan was crying about fighting ISIS. Seems that Egypt is all in too. Israel supports this fight, naturally.
Leon Panetta was interviewed extensively, as the liberal 60 Minute interviewer threw Obama under the bus, while exclaiming the virtues of Obama’s past enablers like Hillary and Panetta himself.
But since no government is willing to commit troops, talk of defeating ISIS is hot air. And no one is willing to discuss what happens IF we defeat ISIS. What despot is going to rule Syria and Iraq? The answer is permanent American and international military bases there until these countries learn to govern and protect themselves.
But again, no use talking about this until the world gets serious.
Ok. Back to the QN “Cone of Silence”.
