Gumby, you're just saying "lol ok suuuuure" without explaining anything.

2017-11-22 06:38:20 UTC  

I am very invested in this discussion and I'm not sure why

2017-11-22 06:45:31 UTC  

Not sure if Gumby is baiting or being a dumbass

2017-11-22 06:45:48 UTC  

I'd put my money on baiting for sure

2017-11-22 06:46:08 UTC  

Dude's like 90% bait

2017-11-22 06:46:14 UTC  

and I respect that

2017-11-22 06:47:17 UTC  

It's okay to be bait.

@Thomas the Sowell Train [USA]

See it like this, before the Russians got involved, the idea was it would take 10 years to end isis.

After the Russians got involved it was done in what? A year or 2?

And that's why I say, how can the most powerful superpower in the world not end "a few dudes in the desert" but the Russians can curb stomp the fuckers much more efficiently?

2017-11-22 13:01:09 UTC  

Yeah, counter insurgency is not easy, but how can a smaller and weaker nation do it faster than US did?

2017-11-22 13:28:09 UTC  

There's money to be made in *fighting* terrorists, not in *defeating* terrorists.

2017-11-22 13:28:56 UTC  

There's money to be made in fighting racists, not in defeating racists.

SPLC money machine #1 goal

See Pakistan, got money to fight off Taliban in its territory, not to destroy it. They were happy to hide Bin Laden because USA kept paying them.

Conspriacy grows when the report said it was "gross incompetance"

2017-11-22 14:04:28 UTC  

Sorry to go off topic, but what's up with the whole laurier college thing? I've been out of the loop

2017-11-22 14:08:37 UTC  

Bascally TA showed a Jordan Peterson debate and someone filed a complaint. TA recorded the conversation shitshow ensures.

2017-11-22 14:35:28 UTC  

And they told the TA that Peterson was Hitler.

2017-11-22 15:12:38 UTC  

Interesting point Fulcrum. So why did Russia crush ISIS? Favoring political power over money?

2017-11-22 15:15:20 UTC  

Maybe Putin wants Syria to be Russia's Israel.

2017-11-22 15:21:50 UTC  

get ready for some seriously painful shit

2017-11-22 15:26:24 UTC  

Anyway, @Fulcrum010 to respond to your initial question about how it was that ISIS was defeated swiftly upon Russian involvement, you didn't figure in the election of Donald Trump, who ordered General Mattis to eliminiate ISIS using whatever level of troop involvement he deemed necessary. I'm not going to claim that was everything it took, but I'd imagine it was pretty significant.

2017-11-22 15:30:10 UTC  

I guess my own point here would somewhat contradict my earlier skepticism. Hmm... is it better to try not to underestimate the United States, or its opponents? I suppose it really depends on who is in charge in this case.

2017-11-22 15:39:01 UTC  

I guess, Russia did it because theit goal from the beginning was supporting Syria and ending isis.

While the main goal of usa wasn't, specially when you look at the whole "moderate rebel" narrative
