Choppers descending onto the dusty runway, troops taking up combat positions. The Russians are playing up the takeover of the Kobani airfield as a victory. The former U.S. airbase that served as the main logistical hub for America's fight against ISIS, now with the Russian flag flying above it.

Good luck Putin. ... Good luck on the neverending wars in the ME.

Well, not anymore. Are you actually going to pretend it WASN'T a US base?

"I suppose those complaining about the military budget..."

What a pathetic deflection. This action had NOTHING to do with the military budget.

Good.

Better the Russians than the Turks or their Islamist proxies. I'm actually a bit surprised Trump didn't put a big bow on it and gift it to Erdogan.
