Obama administration perpetrates the biggest betrayal since the bay of pigs

Syrian rebels battled for their survival in and around Syria’s northern city of Aleppo on Thursday after a blitz of Russian airstrikes helped government loyalists sever a vital supply route and sent a new surge of refugees fleeing toward the border with Turkey.

The Russian-backed onslaught against rebel positions in Aleppo coincided with the failure of peace talks in Geneva, and helped reinforce opposition suspicions that Russia and its Syrian government allies are more interested in securing a military victory over the rebels than negotiating a settlement.”

“The loss of Aleppo, Syria’s largest city and the most significant urban center to fall, at least partially, under rebel control, would represent a potentially decisive blow to the nearly five-year-old rebellion against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The rebels have maintained control of much of Aleppo since they surged into the city in 2012, prompting U.S. intelligence assessments that they eventually would topple the government in Damascus.”

“With the push around Aleppo, pro-government forces were able to break a rebel siege on two predominantly Shiite villages, Nubl and Zahra, which had been surrounded by rebel forces for the past three years and sustained only by government airdrops of food.

In its determination to see the peace talks get underway, the United States had pressured the rebels’ allies, including Turkey and Saudi Arabia, to curtail supplies of weapons, leaving the rebels vulnerable to the new offensive, according to rebel commanders.”

These are the very same rebels that we were training and supplying arms and munitions to

This is not ISIS, these are the original rebel forces that formed up to fight Assad and his brutal dictatorship

I only have one thing to say on the subject:

It’s a damn good thing that the Cuban rebels weren’t suicide bombers

Florida declares medical emerency in four counties due to Zika virus

 

“TAMPA — Gov. Rick Scott declared a health emergency in four counties Wednesday after at least nine cases of the mosquito-borne Zika illness were detected in Florida.

Health officials believe none of the cases originated in Florida. All involve people who contracted the disease while traveling to affected countries, they say.

Scott signed the order to cover Miami-Dade, Lee, Hillsborough and Santa Rosa counties. That’s where all of the cases were detected.

The order allows the state’s agriculture department to use mosquito spray more in those areas. It also directs the Florida Department of Health to make its own decisions about what’s needed from the state and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The Zika virus, which is linked to a birth defect that causes brain deformities, primarily spreads through mosquito bites and rarely causes a severe illness in adults.”

It shoud be a great mosquito season here in Florida

I am in Central Florida and we have had virtually no winter with only one frost to date

It hit 88 in the house yesterday and we had to kick the AC on

Without a hard freeze the mosquito population is going to be through the roof

The take from Iowa

Well, the one thing we can take from Iowa is that no one anywhere wants Jeb Bush

Enough with the Bush’s

Someone asked me if I thought that Trump was a conservative

My answer was fairly simple

GWB was a conservative

He gave us medicare part D

No child left behind

TARP

A huge national debt

China most favored nation status

Two wars that destabilized the middle east and allowed the spread of Muslim insurgencies that now control half of the African continent

The economic collapse of 2008

And the list goes on

I don’t think it matters at this point what label Trump wears

As long as it is not Bush
