How one refugee can make a million more:
NBC: "Two senior U.S. officials tell NBC News that thousands of ground troops are massing around Aleppo and they worry that the war-torn city could soon fall.
The officials said on Friday they were awaiting a major ground operation as troops representing a mix of Syrian regime, Iranian Quds Force, Hezbollah, paid fighters from Iraq (Badr Brigade) and from Afghanistan gather.
Russian fixed wing and Syrian regime helicopters continue to pound the city from the air and they are still striking Aleppo with artillery batteries outside the city." ..........
Russians, Syrians, Iranians, Hezbollah, Badr Brigades--all 'Bam's rowdy friends are coming over tonight!
"Kerry said the administration had failed to make any threat of military force that gave him leverage with Russia.
"I think you're looking at three people, four people in the administration who have all argued for use of force, and I lost the argument," Kerry told the group, according to a recording of the session obtained by The New York Times.
On Wednesday, Kerry informed the Russian foreign minister that the U.S. needed to see "immediate steps to end the assault on Aleppo" or the U.S. would start "making preparations to suspend the U.S.-Russia bilateral engagement on Syria.""...............
Making preparations to begin considering the process of starting to think about the future possibility of discussing the parameters of the contingency plan...to suspend the U.S.-Russia bilateral engagement?
I'm sure Putin is quaking in his boots at the prospect, inside of the state-of-the-art facility where he reads all of Obama's and Hillary's emails.
Even the empty threat of "preparations to suspend" was too war-like:
"Toner said the U.S. has not closed the door. "This is on life support," he said. "But it's not flat lined yet." ..........
Let me take a moment to honor Ambassador Stevens this September. You, sir, are not dead--we know this because the President already won the War on Terror shortly before his re-election, so you couldn't possibly be deceased from a completely unforeseeable attack by You-Tube critics. On 9/11.
And to the one million possible refugees from Mosul, you won't really be refugees because your city was not retaken by terrorists after America's finest already took it once. We know this because the president declared the War in Iraq a success and over.
And to the Syrians in Aleppo, awaiting the Axis of Evil's attempt to level the city, you are not being bombed. The President declared a Red Line in your country, and then stood on the White House lawn with the Pope, patting himself on the back for resisting the siren call to war. So there is no war.
That booming sound you think you hear? That's not Putin's airplanes or Assad's artillery. That's the President's mighty driver, smashing a Titleist right down the middle of the fairway.
The Arc of History is long, but it bends toward the water hazard.
