Thank you Tom, what is worrying is "WHY" our leaders with all of the expertise at their fingertips, all the resources, the advice, the military back-up et al continue to make such a pig's ear of it all when we mere mortals can see very clearly what needs to be done!!! We'rrrrr  ar doomed Mr Mainwaring Sir, doooommmmed I say!! it would be funny were it not so serious!

David, I have to congratulate you on a very comprehensive overview of the situation in both Syria and the Ukraine.   Your appreciation of the political field is (in my opinion) an accurate estimation. I mere mortals such as we, can see the overall picture and to some degree, its solution; then why cannot those appointed to lead us see that too. My concerns for our grandchildren grow by the day.

Okay,yes Las Vegas calling, David I've been monitoring the site from afar ( and enjoying the night life) it's great having an English paper app allows me par ooze it anytime anywhere. So when all those people were killed in Turkey I turned Fox News on in my hotel room,a few seconds ,okay maybe 35 or so and that was it.Most Americans think Turkey is what they eat at thanksgiving,they (god bless them) have No idea on what genie George W and Tony have let out the bottle,also they don't fuckin care ,as long as they can have their debate on who the   a) next president is  b) next speaker is (who or what is a speaker ) .....they've 24 hours of Trump vs Hilary , so the rest of the world will be dealt with after November.   Now Vlad the impaired (Putin) has been working behind the scenes , he has the Ukrain ( east bit ) also a deep water port in the Med (Syria) and as long as he's breathing he ain't going to give either of them up , so it doesn't matter wether its commercial airlines or good Muslims he's going to bomb the shit out them.   Accurate to a T ,we have not learned lessons of the past , crusaders got their noses bloody how long ago ,you see the Saudis sitting back and just letting the West make fools and lots of dead bodies .I made a comment a few posts ago about what would solve the problems out there but we have too many liberal minded left thinking stupid bastards in power .......if the powers that be namely ISIS wants to live in the 6th century then use the device that can put them there ,it's a bomb ,let them have a desert ,but there's oil there so we play catch up ..this subject matter is going to run and run till we have a leader who will ????? To be contd

The big problem is that whilst countries in the middle east are living in the present, their brains are still in  11th century mode, and they can not see that their actions are totally alien to the modern world.  They have no clue on how to behave in a 20th century world, and all its cultures. IS and all its branches have not thought they must change or in the end be eliminated by the west. The only fly in the ointment is Putin, he is just as mad as the middle eastern countries. I have, and always will, believe their brains have been scrambled over millenia by the sun. I know that in the short time we were in El Adem, my head got really hot in  seconds if I removed my hat, (no silly comments there please!!!) so it must be even worse for the Arabs etc who have been in the middle east for thousands of years, so their brains are addled well and truly by now. The other big problem is how the west react to the proof that a Russian missile brought down that Dutch passenger plane over Ukraine, while on a recognised flight path. A slapped wrist no doubt.... Hey Ho, another day of madness.
