“The Bomb ’em all and let Netanyahu Sort them Out Policy”

Golly, this indiscriminate policy of bombing various and sundry people at assorted weddings and funerals is more complicated than it sounds.

US-led attacks on the jihadis of the Islamic State (Isis) are the product of a confused policy that is “turning a blind eye” to the crimes of President Bashar al-Assad, according to the leader of Syria’s main western-backed opposition group

Hadi al-Bahra, president of the Syrian National Coalition (SNC), warned in an interview on Monday that air strikes against Isis by the international coalition assembled by Barack Obama were weakening support inside Syria for already embattled non-extremist anti-Assad forces.

Oh for the good ol’ days of carpet bombing, heavens to Curtis LeMay!

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
