selling our illegal occupation

I believe this is called "chutzpah"... and we know Donald has plenty of that. It's also called we're out of money, which has been the aim of just about the whole rest of the world to live through for over a decade.
The more simple translation of Trump's message to the Saudis seems to be something like this: "Our occupation of Syria is costly. If you don't want Assad and Iran to regain the whole country, then you're invited to take over the occupation yourselves."

Judging by Trump's recent maneuvers with the Saudis and CENTCOM chief Votel's congressional testimony, it appears we are in for more long, painful mission creep and perpetuation of the illegal occupation of Syria with no end in sight.
And so I think it was a particularly apt day to post a crucial reminder on the complicated system of pipes.

pipe up any time....
