    I must say that this is a rare Bors strip with which Convservatives (not “Republican leadership”) can agree. Everything we are supposed to believe about the Middle East is too farcical to take seriously, yet here we are.

    Would those saying a troop can’t be trained in only a year, care to reflect on how long our Army has folks in Basic and AIT? Interesting Bremer et al didn’t ask as single question of troops or police in Iraq before firing them all, letting ’em keep their weapons, and well, go off to form groups (a bunch of them actually) like ISIL.(over 70 “militias” at one time in Syria, count keeps changing)

    Yes, the crap fed the people of the US for news is pretty ridiculous when it comes to the MidEast. If Arabs are such insanely wild and crazy fighters, how is it a group with just a few thousand adherents (in the beginning) can take over a vast swatch of territory? And kill and torture and rape whom they please? Really, in the Arab world, it has always appeared to me to be all about keeping your head down and never getting excited as long as you can feed your family. The governments in Syria and Egypt forgot that last part.

    What you are forgetting is the US soldier is training constantly after they get out of Basic. The military will cut anything before they cut out training. With these guys, that time is all they get. And they are starting from a MUCH lower place on the ready to fight scale than US citizens. Another factor is logistics, the ratio of logistic suppliers to actual fighters is always many to one, usually about 15 to 1 in modern times. When we talk about support and no “boots on the ground”, we mean we’ll do the part of the 15, you guys get out there and be Marines or Rangers. IOW, we’ll do the expensive part in money, you do the fighting and dying part. OFC, we don’t do VERY well by them, just somewhat.

    If there’s one thing that could bring the world together in universal harmony, it’s disliking Michael Bay films.

    We don’t need the effete Arab intellectuals who read the actual New Yorker (or the Arab equivalent), we need liberal, Moderate Muslims. And by ‘liberal, Moderate Muslims’ we mean those Muslims who believe that the First Pillar of Islam implies, a fortiori, the Divine Right of all the Kings who pay their baksheesh to the elected leaders of the US and Western Europe, especially all the Moderate Wahabbi Muslims.

    If we were to fund Syrian rebels the time to get in was long ago, before extremists gained power and influence among the rebels. here, as elsewhere, we are paying a price for the President’s dithering.
