President Trump’s decision to send troops to protect oil fields in Syria means the U.S. may have as many troops in the country — or potentially more — as when he took office, undermining his repeated pledge to end a “forever war” in the Middle East.
CaseyL: It's a big reminder that life is not always fair, the good guys don't always win. These are the times that really define the characters of people. It's easy to feel defeated, and incredulous towards obvious injustice. This too shall pass, friends. Don't despair. Gather yourselves. Get active. Think about the risk of 4 more years. Lives literally hang in the balance. Do not quietly allow the destruction of our democracy to happen. Start the conversation. Get everyone you know fired up. Don't think for a minute that Justice will be served in the Senate. Don't think this is going to be easy. This all was allowed to happen in the first place because nobody thought it was possible so they stayed home. If we stay home again, we cannot complain about the consequences, which will certainly be dire. Chin up people. Don't let a little injustice completely defeat you. It's time to fight back, like your life depends on it!
