Great article Derek. You articulated well my concerns with the target drone strikes as a main response method.

@YankeePapa @Recon6 @KESStrong @TexGrl The first year was a fun ride with Recon6 and Tnago9 splashing the trolls, OldPH2 permanently wounding us with those eye bleaching pics he posted, and the "lively" discussions.... fun times :)

Saw a headline that the first nurse from Dallas is going home virus free now. Need to read up on that, but I remember that she received a blood transfusion from the other guy that was brought home with the virus. Maybe they will get a handle on treatments, then the threat will be less effective. Or at least the threat won't start a nation-wide panic.

@CameronMichaelPartlow Very true in most larger universities. It's publish or perish there an many leave the actual teaching to the teaching assistants and focus on their research and research students.

@jput/ Joseph @LauraKinCA @SOFREP Yes it does. SF Bay area.
@fionagreenamyer Kinda how I have treated the TR membership since I signed up in week 2 oh so long ago :)
@jput/ Joseph @LauraKinCA @SOFREP In general, yes there are a bunch from the eastern portion of the states. Not tonight though.
@SOFREP That only makes chat go faster :)
@SOFREP Keeps you on your toes.... or fingertips ... at times!! :)
@jput/ Joseph @LauraKinCA @SOFREP Oh, I already upgraded :)
@SOFREP Good to hear chat will improve. Some good features with this and mobile version, but I really miss being able to break it out to a separate screen and make it bigger to see more. Sometimes it goes very fast - the convos.
@SOFREP I'm going to presume by your assurances below that chat will still be available to all TR... another question I keep getting :)
@SOFREP Great to hear Charlie. I know that was a worry for several I've talked to.
One of my outstanding questions Charlie is whether regular TR members who have been members for at least a year before the Vegas party will still be invited or will it eventually go to the 300 group only?
Got the Audible version - the author narrated it, which I am looking forward to.

@Txazz @LauraKinCA @14Charlie But did he renounce citizenship or just tear up a visa because he wanted to stay? Feel differently about idiots from someone going there to join jihad.
@14Charlie Good! Just as long as we don't allow them back... and if something bad happens over there while they wage some jihad...
Thanks Charlie. Any word on whether the US and other nations will revoke citizenships and passports of those they track to joining ISIS?
Nice essay Blake. Good to have your perspective. I believe that is the statue that Jack has recently written about that is behind tight fencing to the extent that you can barely see it passing by. I hope that changes soon as I think it's a powerful statue.

Thanks for addressing the potential regional "partners" capabilities and political issues. I had been thinking about the Saudis and that they and several others should step up, so it was a good reminder of Gulf 1 and the true aid they provided. I look forward to the next part as all I can see happening with this administration is something similar to Libya and Egypt... we mess around and they end up worse off.

Thanks Eric. Seems at times the world is on fire with all the troubling areas and some conflicts get over looked. We can only hope that this courageous woman's actions and death is a rally cry to her people to resist the Taliban.
