Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, November 17, 2019

Russian troops have taken command of a U.S. airbase in northern Syria " and without firing a shot. Russian state media showed commandos staging what looked like a military invasion. 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.

So not a US base actually, but land located in Syria .....

Got it ....

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

I suppose those complaining about the military budget to pay for entitlements people, should be along shortly cheering this action.... or NOT.

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.

At this point, all Trump supporters have left is denying reality.

The bloated------------ proves once again that he's nothing more than Putin's ---- holster.

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.

Just look at how easy it is for Trump supporters to reject any sense of reality whenever Dear Leader screws up.

'So not a US flag actually, but a piece of cloth with a similar design ....'
