Pearls of expression.

MSNBC’s deranged intelligence analyst Malcolm Nance topped everyone as usual with a babbling nonsensical post about how US troops were killed in Manbij because there were no US troops in Manbij, proving that Assad and Putin may have allowed the attack to happen, which proves Trump is a Russian asset.
“The moment Russia and Assad took over patrolling Manbij on Trumps go ahead we get hit with suicide bombers for the first time. It’s possible Russia/Assad let the attack happen. Trump’s treachery on this matter now kills our special operators. #RussianAsset,” Nance tweeted between huffs of paint thinner.[1]
Johnstone goes on to quote the sensible Prof. Max Abrahms and former Green Party vice presidential nominee Ajamu Baraka to the effect that ISIS has zero reason to attack U.S. troops at this point, as staying to fight ISIS is the current war cry of the “war whores” as Johnstone (correctly) describes them. You bet. If the US and its coalition “partners” leave then there are that many fewer troops trying to find and kill them soooo, what can we do to keep them from leaving? Makes sense to me.

Why, shades of “Animal” Assad! And his bizarre decision to use chemical weapons – supposedly – on Syrian civilians when (1) he’s clearly prevailing militarily, (2) killing civilians does nothing to weaken jihadi military units, (3) fear in civilian populations adds not a damn thing to the military situation, and (4) he knows that if there’s one thing that causes deranged Westerners to flip out and dust off plans to take him out it’s photos of dead civilians taken by jihadi White Helmet humanitarians.

Yes. It makes perfect sense for ISIS to piss off Americans just itching for an excuse to stay in Syria and for Assad to target civilians for no rational military purpose whatsoever.
