Response to UnrepentantLiberal (Original post)

8. There Washington Post goes again: "major blow."

I can hardly see how it's a "major blow" to take over an unguarded control room - somehow I doubt they have the trained technicians to run the thing. Yes, the insurgents could try to stop electricity from flowing to secure areas. We will see if that comes to pass. Nusra are similar to Pol Pot in Cambodia - "purity" is much more important than livelihood and security to them.

I'm thankful that Obama resisted the pressure from Hillary Clinton and other elements to support al-Qaida-aligned terrorism in Syria.
