So ISIS is getting its *** handed to it from a military collation comprised of forces of the United States, Russia, Syria and Hezbollah.

Never would of thought that would happen. Just missing N Korea and China.

This is why somewhat normalized relations with Russia is important.

The Russians could never be trusted, but normalizing relations out of the current vacuum that it exists in is a great thing when talking about ISIS getting its butt handed to it. Reminds me of a time we had to come together back in the 30s to defeat a certain global threat.

Yes, agreed and very familiar thus my quote.
If it gets us what WE need, so be it. But never get comfortable......and remain incredibly diligent.

When it comes to War I'm not worried about Holy. Only that my Allies can kick some major ***.
I completely disagree that the Russians can't be trusted. In this New World going forward I see them being our biggest Ally. And you can't say our government isn't shady. Every Russian I ever met was totally cool with the US and lost their **** when they found out I was from Texas. Putin is not Stalin, Nikita Khrushchev or Yuri Andropov.

I'm sure Israel is super thrilled we are doing anything friendly with Hezbollah. Any indication we are providing them training or weapons?

I think it's time to not be asking for assistance or permission for all these little 3rd world Muslim hell holes. Because we are gonna be the Devil either way. Give the *******s a reason to call us the Devil.
