Anyone got any recommendations as to where I can watch the first barrage of nuclear explosions? I need to at least be able to finish a bottle of whiskey before I get consumed.

Come over to my place, I live in Dallas, Nuke central.

Yes, I really do think Asshole would risk World War III if he thought it would take some of the negative coverage off him.

Ground zero would be my first choice, but I don't know how good Russia is at hitting ground zero right on the nose.  If they don't get it right on, you might just get thrown off your chair, end up with a broken arm, and some severe burns, while wandering around in the wreckage looking for your whiskey bottle.

My dream is to watch ISIS from ISS.

Well, that's just great.  What happens when there's an incident between one of our planes and one of their planes? (both ostensibly fighting ISIS in Syria)

Syria smartly pulled our authorization to fly there.  Next Israeli or American plane over Syria, will get lit up.

well when people thought Trump and Putinpie were best of friends, this might sink that battleship.

Though TJ Kirk raised a point in his video on it, Assads bene doing this shit to his people for years now, trump even knew about the gas attack and didn't respond, not until pictures of the gas attack came to him, and he commissioned swift action after seeing the pictures.

Think that fear of having a crazy guy with his finger on the launch codes have just been proven more valid then people thought.

Don't worry.  TV is real, and we already know how to handle this ...

RE: Syria

I believe we must always support losing side, until:

1) an equilibrium is achieved
2) all sides are drained

No capable side with the upper hand is going to voluntarily sit at negotiation table.

Whether Trump's action will do that, that remains to be seen. My personal assessment is that it's just for show.

Here's the pickle in the pudding.... Assad didn't start out completely messed up. Russia has a big interest in helping Syria as much as possible.

The biggest reserve of natural gas is under the Black Sea. Iran has been extracting it on the north side and running it through a pipe to Russia. Russia uses some of the natural gas and sells the rest to Europe. It is a critical part of financing the Russian economy; and a big piece of Iran's economy. The gulf states made a plan to extract gas on the south side and run a pipe to Europe through the gulf states and Syria to Europe. All of the states on the route agreed to the plan except Syria because Assad was on friendly terms with Russia. The gulf states offered to pay the U.S. the total cost of the war if Obama invaded Syria (must be a lot of money in that gas). If the gas pipe through Syria is finished Russia will suffer. On the other side, if the pipe goes through American oil men will be making a bigger profit.

I wonder why the gulf states didnt make a route for the pipe that doesnt go through Syria when they found out Syria didnt want to play.

Did Iraq agree? I somehow doubt that.

Also, Kurdistan is a mountainous region, so it probably had to do with some practical considerations.

What's important, and never forget is the popularity of the president at home. He could get caught on live TV fucking a 4 year old, but start a war and it's a wash.
I'm finding myself in agreement almost with some of the alt-right conspiracy nuts about the nerve gas thing just being ginned up as an excuse to prop up his approval rating and distract from all the other bullshit being piled up.
