And Newsweek is already reporting on the new leader of ISIS.  Didn't take long at all.

Every quality organization needs an organizational chart and a line of succession.

Using the military to install compliant leaders/governments in middle east countries is a fools errand.

Time to get out of the region.

If we want to maintain a base in the region what's wrong with making Israel our logistical hub?

It really complicates moving stuff around the region.  Lots of stuff needs to flow in and out of a logistical hub, and short of "*expletive deleted*ck you , we're invading" you can't easily cross those borders.  Israel is a really bad basing strategy if you are trying to draw down the region.

I only say them because all the others are on various levels of instability and craziness domestically.

Im not nor have I ever been in the military. As a joe blow member of the public I've  just really lost all respect for the leadership who think our involvement in the region is necessary.

Im not a believer in the "mission" whatever the hell it is purportedly.

Just so I'm being clear, I'm not commenting on the mission with that post. 

As a guy that has done Logistics in that AO a lot, and am doing it now, there's real, practical issues with using Israel as a LOGBASE.  It's a very challenging area to move stuff around in.  In a lot of ways it was easier when the war was really on, and we could just roll trucks with stuff.  Yeah, they might get blown up, but we got them moving in reasonable timeframes.  Crossing borders in the mid east is an exercise in planning, frustration, and planning to be frustrated.

We do store a lot of military equipment in Isreal; here's an old article about it:

So, Pelosi was working for  ISIS?

That doesn't sound likely... at all...

I can see where they are coming from, but no logic is going to carry that one without some proof.

That twitter source is probably friends with this one so you never know who your sources are.

CNN Uncovers Evidence Hero Dog Sniffed Dozens Of Butts Back In College
Quote
U.S.—Everyone praised the classified "Hero Dog" for taking down ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Quote
"Oh yeah, good old [redacted]? He was nuts!" said one German Shepherd who attended Old Yaler Obedience School with the hero dog, according to a CNN report. "He was always sniffing any butt he could find. Cats, dogs, humans, you name it. He didn't have a preference. He identified as pansniffual."

Quote
Democrats immediately called for the dog to be court-martialed and for the death of Baghdadi to be overturned.
