    Agree.

    The only nice thing you can say about him is that he sticks up for Russia's best interests (as long as they are aligned with his). Nothing else really comes to mind.

    'Liberal' military interventions tend to make things worse. I hovers this will do the same.

    But appeasing criminals like Putin is not the answer either. The Russian economy is smaller than Spain's and could easily be squashed.

    The defense ministry said the Russian forces did not deploy their air defense systems stationed in Syria to intercept the American, British, and French missiles. For its part, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Dunford said the Pentagon "specifically identified targets" to "mitigate the risk of Russian forces being involved." The coalition did contact their Russian counterparts to "deconflict airspace," but did not "coordinate targets" with Moscow.

    Yesterday we heard that Assad moved all his kit and people to Russian bases - having been given enough time to do so to allow us to bomb some empty targets to save face and keep up appearances.

    Are there any reports of any casualties yet?

    Strike and kill without wanting the investigation first and find out who is lying and who is not... what is that called.

    How do you figure that?

    Because she had more minerals than Dave to strike without asking parliament first?

    The country is not stupid enough to elect a cowardly terrorist sympathiser like Corbyn as prime minister.

    In fact it has impeded the investigation. It is no coincidence that the attack took place just as investigators were about to travel to Syria. Moreover, it has now revealed the the source of information about the alleged chemical attack came from BoJo's "White Helmets". The reports contradict the reports from the hospital in Douma who claimed they were treating victim's of a conventional bombing. Then someone spread panic by shouting it was a chemical attack. People panicked and started hosing each other down contrary to the advice from doctors.

    The important question is, am I currently safer here in Washington DC or should I hope that nothing kicks off before Thursday when I return to Germany and will I be safer there?
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Washington is OK but I have no doubt that there will be reprisals in the UK, the UK gives refuge to terrorists.
