    An article that dissects the recent "deranged" NYT's article that laments the pullout of America from the Middle East.

    This is a perfect example of how NYT and other mainstream media serve the military industrial complex and its heavy Israeli interests.

    Democrats never saw a war they didn't love, including loving to pretend to oppose if it could get them/keep them elected.

    "Engaged" is your term not mine. Nor was it used in the OP article. That article accurately used the term "stationed".

    Ergo: you want to debate against a term that you purposefully introduced into the discussion.

    That dog don't hunt!

    I hope that "helps a little bit".

    I guess when you did the copy/paste you didn't read the title.

    Now that we are hunting, what are we hunting?

    Since when have headlines ever been accurate? Or comment-worthy? Mostly they're simply used as baited hooks to get people to buy the newspaper to read the dangled article.

    Don't tell me you take headlines seriously while ignoring the body of the story

    Again, you have conveniently ignored their description of "stationed" rather than engaged.

    I'm pretty sure Bibi isn't very impressed with our guys "stationed" in Kuwait and Turkey when Iran is now knocking on his door. You might even say the "destationing" (is that a word? has upset the Mid-East.

    Presumably he'll order Trump to change course and does as Bibi tells him.

    God bless Israel.

    He does seem to be flopping in that direction.
