#1 Did he consult with his ultimate superior, or it's another dept of State "we know best"?

#2 Would it matter if we didn't have American personnel in Turkey. Need to have a Jesus-come-to-meeting session with the senior officer corps and its fixation with the global strategies of the 1950s.

#3 Ref #2: Need to have a Jesus-come-to-meeting session with the senior officer corps and its fixation with the global strategies of the 1950s.\

Start with the Congress, then move over to Foggy Bottom, then out to McLean. Only then with the military leadership trundle along with any sense of urgency.

#7 Probably part of Biden's deal to get Clyburn's support. Along with having Stacy "A1C" Abrams as a running mate.

#8 Very strange... or a brilliant bit of reverse psychology? To wit: In broad terms the EU hates the US and will reflexively oppose whatever it suggests.

Siding with the Russians is also a practical stance since controls a lot of euro energy.
