OK, I guess it’s a simple case of class solidarity among the uber rich. And, of course, all is forgiven, Georgie boy. In her latest kerfuffle, Ellen DeGeneres reminds us (in no particular order), that,
a) Rich liberals have skin-deep political and moral principles
b) that hanging with the Uber Rich is dangerous for your progressive creds
c) that Ellen, posturings aside, has joined the ruling class media’s campaign to rehabilitate the image of war criminal George W Bush and his ilk.
MoA—Ahhhh. The “Free Syrian Army”, which the U.S. built and supplied with an immense amount of weapons to fight the Syrian government, is “crazy and not reliable”. How come that all the think tankers and ‘journalists’ who for years lauded that ‘army’ never noticed that? The Pentagon finally recognized that it was not possible to hold onto the area without starting a war with its NATO partner Turkey. On Saturday evening Trump gave the order that all U.S. troops shall leave northeast Syria within 30 days. The Secretary of Defense did not resign as his predecessor did over a similar decision but defended the move.
