  1. The bottom line is the Kurds were offered to have an autonomous region by Assad months ago. They could have avoided this whole attack by agreeing to this at that time…I don’t even know if the autonomous region is even in the cards anymore as they waited too long; but, now they are right back where they started at least which is under the umbrella of Syria’s protection…

    As Trump has said many times and most Americans agree with him we cannot be the policeman of the world. Now it behooves their leaders to get behind Assad and convince their people to support him as he is the leader of the country of which they are a part…

    The End…

  2. Hey, cool story about Billy Joel. I remember you talking about that on your old podcast at Fox. What a way to close out the Rangers legacy at the ballpark.
    We (Arlington) are NOT tearing down/demolishing The Ballpark in Arlington where the Rangers have played. We’ve built a new “Awesome” stadium, and the old one is being “repurposed “.
    Also the Texas Rangers play in Arlington, not “Dallas” as you seem to think and announce!! And guess what, the Dallas Cowboys also play in Arlington! Arlington has been very supportive of bringing in DFW sports/entertainment to Arlington- midway between Fort Worth and Dallas.
    Hey, Fort Worth is an awesome city, and you should visit. You always refer only to Dallas-a big mistake! You must be & are missing out!! Ranch guys fit in much better in Fort Worth with the relaxed environment.
