Can We Just Have the Air Force Drop Cable TV News Anchors on Syria?

Posted on | September 3, 2013 | 115 Comments

At this moment, John Kerry is on TV demanding that the United States must now involve itself in the Syrian civil war.

No sane person is in favor of this.

John McCain is in favor of this.

I rest my case.

Having made up my mind weeks ago that U.S. involvement in Syria is bad policy, I’m bored to tears by this “debate,” knowing that when this noise is over, Congress will vote against involvement.

Or maybe they’ve all gone crazy.

Cable TV news networks won’t shut up about it, so I’m obligated to blog about Syria, but no one can force me to take it seriously.

    “Oh, Sahib, the men were concerned at first, but they are much happier now that they have been informed that parachutes will be issued.”

    Bless you, Wombat! I worry when no one seems to catch my references!

    The only thing that got him through pilot training was his last name. he drove an A-1 into the drink in Corpus Christi Bay and they were able to clear the water and crank it right up. Simple incompetence was what put him in the bay. Anyone else would have been washed.

    Hopefully there is a Hotel set aside in Damascus and it is accidentally targeted.

    Hence the 450 reference, 500 ft. was the minimum safe elevation for static line shoots to work.
