I'll Admit It




Presidential candidate Gary Johnson is getting beat up today for not knowing that Aleppo was in Syria.  Hey, I'll admit it: I had no idea. And I try to watch/listen/read more than an average amount of news.

But what gets me is every media guy is doing the, "Can you believe this? Everyone knows about Aleppo!"  I'm not so sure about that. We might have an Emperor's New Clothes situation going on.

When asked the same thing, Hillary said it was dog food.

If you don't know about Aleppo, you are seriously misinformed about current events. I mean this without any jest at all.

When you see the photos of those very young kids in that hell hole you kinda want to know the name of that hell hole.

Barry, are you suggesting that the media might have an agenda? Might bend the story to fit its version of the truth? How apocryphal.

I see that you are finally noticing some extreme media bias.

Too bad it doesn't make 2 sh&ts in this situation.

Anyone reasonably intelligent and paying attention would know where it is.

Gary Johnson doesn't care where Aleppo is. He is an isolationist fool.

Aleppo is Syria's largest city, its commercial center and home to groups resistant to the dictator Assad. It's an example of just how hard it is to deal with multiple groups fighting each other in the same city. Which would Trump propose to obliterate first - without harming those supporting his position? Who is a fighter and who is a civilian? Is this one of Trump's carpet-bombing targets? Don't worry, Trump will get his generals to give him a "plan" in first 30 days! (But he won't understand the plan so he'll do whatever hits his fancy that day).

I strained my Aleppo in the gym just last week.

12:35 so what is Hillaritys plan?

Why is Aleppo a concern for the United States of America? Why have we been in the middle east ( at war, undeclared ) for 14 years? What is it we can WIN? I find it refreshing that a politician is unconcerned about some place to spend our lives and treasure.
