    Assad's... right after he violated the "Red Line" threat. Planes were all lined up and ready to be destroyed. Sitting ducks.

    The planes bombing Aleppo are Putin's.

    Swizz talking politics is a lot like hex talking about picking up women, or comic talking fitness or Steven discussing bacon

    Makes you laugh but you feel bad for it just the same

    What did I ever do to you?

    The Soviet occupation of Afghanistan lasted through Reagan's entire term in office as did the Lebanese civil war, when attacked Reagan withdrew from the conflict entirely. Hezbollah was born under his watch. Is this due to his weakness?

    Swizz is snowed in and the Lodge is his only connection to civilized discourse. Plus, he enjoys trolling.

    Uh, no.
    Aleppo is a disaster and it was caused largely by the inaction and fake "red lines" of Obama. This will be part of his legacy, bigly.
    Beginning on Jan 20.... 70 - 80% more of his "legacy" will begin to be repealed. As it needs to be. Aleppo is a bloody icing on Obama's cake.

    Aleppo is being decimated by the Russians. But I get it, why let facts get in the way of a good meme.

    Let's put it this way, the Ukraine will no longer be an independent state by the end of next year. Al-Asaad will have murdered another 100,000 Syrians, and NATO will be weaker.

    Right. Obama OK'd Putin's seizure of the Crimea and sending Russian troops in disguised uniforms to fight against the govt. of the Ukraine in other areas.

    Keep on drinking the Trump-Aide, Swizz.
    Keep your stinkin' government hands off my Medicare.

    Yes, then you get my point... just as ligit a statement as comic's attempt to dump these issues on the next president. Ridiculous.

    No this will happen on Trump's watch and is the reason why Putin worked so hard to get him elected.

    He is actually going to grow tired of winning.

    His "red line" threat strategy was the complete opposite of "Walk softly and carry a big stick".
    He walked loudly and carried no stick. Legacy.
