Joe Scarborough Says Russia is Helpless to Protect Syria

I want you to watch the clip above to see what we’re dealing with in the media. This is a former Congress crittur, well-connected amongst the elite in our country, who is rumored to be texting buddies with Jared Kushner, giddy over the specter of souring Pindo-Russian relations.
A week ago, you have little Devin Nunes going back and forth going, ‘What do I say? What do I say about Russia? What do I say about Russia?’ and Sean Spicer getting killed. Now, the Russians snub Tillerson! I mean, if I’m Donald Trump, I’m thinking these are good days!
This is all a joke for neocon Joe and his stupid haircut, especially since it’s not his fat face having to fight the wars to come. After bathing in his wanton stupidity for celebrating poor relations with the only other global nuclear superpower, Joe then reveled in the idea that Putin was humiliated by the Syrian ordeal. If I’m Putin and I read this, I order someone to kick Scarborough down a flight of stairs, shrouded by sarin gas, tomorrow.
Russian foreign policy since Xmas 1991 has been all about resentment, resentment of losing the cold war. So you go into Crimea, you go into Georgia, you go into these places, that you’re not going to face a show of force. Imagine how humiliating it is for Vladimir Putin (laughter), that his troops are in Syria, and have Pindostan say, ‘We don’t care if you’re in Syria or not, you can’t do anything about it! In fact, we’re going to tell you, we’re going to strike your client state and you’re going to do nothing about it! If you want to get your people out of the way, that’s fine! If you don’t, we’re gonna kill them!’ And so why does he stay there, when he knows he’s got a guy like Assad? We sure as hell have shown we can strike Syria, even when their warplanes are there. Do you know how embarrassing it is for Vladimir Putin when he’s trying to project strength? ‘I got this big gas station and I’m in Syria too.’ Well, great! You can’t even protect your client in Syria! Embarrassing!
These aren’t the words of a stable man, by any stretch of the imagination. Wanting to provoke war with a formidable superpower, or anyone for that matter, is disgusting and not at all representative of how most Trump supporters feel about national defense.
