Last week, at the urging of Russia, the Americans finally called off aerial surveillance.

“The deal has been completed,” said a “commander in the [pro-Assad] military alliance” — probably a Hezbollah source — to Reuters.

The commanders said that, along the new route, ISIS freed a Hezbollah prisoner.

Earlier this week, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah — highlighting the role of his forces in propping up the Assad regime and downplaying that of the regime’s military — declared “victory” in the 79-month Syrian conflict.

Reflect on the absurdity of the situation. Imagine for a moment that this is Gaul in ~50 B.C. A column of Gauls is retreating from an untenable position to link up with their comrades to fight another day. Caesar when informed of this column, despite having the means to annihilate them, allows them free passage. When fighting them later, he loses some of his best men. His excuse. “Well there were women and children in that column and .......”.
The moral of the story is that you cannot put brave, fighting men in absurd situations. These “rules of engagement” result in more death, prolonged unnecessary conflict and in many instances defeat as occurred in Vietnam. Either win or leave.

If this is the deal in Syria, imagine what’s going on with our troop “build-up” in Afghanistan.

Oh, back to the Russian Troll Lies, where’s your proof?

The Russians are the ones that warned us off of ISIS, Russia’s allies protected the ISIS fighters.

Pretty clear, Russia and Assad have aided ISIS now.

I thought we didn’t deal for hostages although it is only mentioned in one article. That is a YYUGE mistake.

They are not McCain's goat humpers.

He is their goat.
