New Priorities in the Middle East

Reuters has the following to report today:

"NEW YORK - The United States' diplomatic policy on Syria for now is no longer focused on making the war-torn country's president, Bashar al-Assad, leave power, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations said on Thursday, in a departure from the Obama administration's initial and public stance on Assad's fate.

The view of the Trump administration is also at odds with European powers, who insist Assad must step down."

Contrary to former US policy, and at odds with European powers...well, let me think now.  Isn't there someone out there that wants Assad to remain in power?  I just know his name will come to me any second now.

This is what treason in the White House looks like.

Perhaps General Flynn will be able to tel us if he gets immunity and lives long enough.

I already suggested in a comment on someone else's blog that he shouldn't be booking any vacations to Russia in the near future. Of course, the whole thing could be a ruse- if he knew by prior arrangement that the House and Senate Republicans would never grant him immunity, he would be able to use this as a pretext to never tell a word of the truth in any forum. Sort of the twenty first century version of the Ollie North get out of jail free strategy.

And Carl, I'm really busy these days. I don't have time to deal with idiotic right wing crap. Sorry. Maybe some other time.
