Devoted readers to the blog need to read in entirety this article as written by David P. Goldman [Spengler]. Note the date is December 16, 2016. Slightly over one year ago now.
WHAT WOULD CARDINAL RICHELIEU DO IN SYRIA?
"When the Ghost of Christmas Future is Cardinal Richelieu"
NO MENTION OF THE ISLAMIC STATE [ISIL]! The battlefield presence of ISIL only greatly creating greater chaos in an already very chaotic situation.
And as to the question of great importance to Donald Trump at this exact moment:
". . . 'What should the United States do in Syria?' I asked."
"'As little as possible,' he replied. 'Some anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles from Gaddafi's stockpiles, enough to encourage the opposition and prevent Assad from crushing them, and without making it obvious who sent them.'"
Richelieu fond of wearing armor and carrying a sword. The holy man as militant and not above engaging in intrigue of an international dimension. When the Cardinal speaks we should listen?
