    And it’s pretty good evidence why we need to stop talking about arming Syrian rebels, when we don’t know who’s who, just like when we armed the “good guys” in Afghanistan, and lost control of the situation.

    Some folks are slow learners. (Russians too, folks.)

    …Thank God we won’t have these problems with The Texas National Guard…

    It’s amazing how different the coverage is for this than the USS Vincennes, which shot down a passenger aircraft in 1988.

    “Toeing” the line.

    That’s all; just a spelling/usage note. (I only give them when there’s a chance of the user learning from it.)

    If you recall the Vicennes was engaged in combat operations against Iranian Patrol boats at the time and the Iranian Airbus was not squawking the proper IFF codes. This was also just a year and two months following the Iraqi Exocet missile attack on the USS Stark FFG-31. You can read the DoD report here:

    There was a comment on an NY Times article today saying that we should arm the Ukraine military “like we did the mujahideen when we had to stop the Soviet advance into Afghanistan”.
    Obviously that commenter forgot how that little ploy turned out.

    @Kip W

    Every time I see that one I remember a word usage book (the entertaining kind, for nerds like me) that started a chapter with an illustration – a line drawing – of a tow truck hooked up to . . . a line – “towing the line.” :-)

    But, wait, there’s more! The first one hundred disaffected rebel groups that place their orders will receive, free of charge, “I love Putin” patches, color coordinated to go along with their green camo-outfits!

    This is the first Sorensen cartoon I’ve been seriously disappointed in as regards her political stance on an issue. It shows a serious over consumption of U.S. propaganda (as do the bigoted comments above) and an utter lack of information regarding the non-U.S./NATO view of how the U.S. promoted a fascist coup in Kiev leading to the tragic downing of a civilian airliner by a missile system which the fascists in Kiev have in large numbers and of which the anti-fascist rebels in the Donbass do not have at all.
