    Well, there you have it — Osprey and more Special Forces — “a relatively inexpensive way to show resolve in a popular cause”. Nothing more and nothing less. One and done.

    But millions for a China vacation and a potentially long term unstable balance of power with Russia — golf.

    Uganda . Think Clinton. Think Mogadishu. That’s how badly these things can turn out — there is nothing relatively inexpensive about that or about the cost of material and the loss of brave service men or women. Special Forces die also.

    1. Stepping up the hunt for Kony (whose forces have dwindled to around 250 fighters) while the killers of four Americans in Benghazi roam freely and have never been questioned by the CIA.

  2. Deep sadness new data shows plane ended in the Southern Indian Ocean. Due to info concluded flight ended in Indian Ocean. Was lost, ended in ocean. Wreckage picked up. Just heard on Fox.
