Stories like this makes Monomakhos happy. We used to do things like this. Now I imagine the Army would only be allowed to do this if gay marriages could be performed there.
On another note, it looks like our foreign policy in Syria has decided to abandon neoconservatism. For all the Russian hacking nonsense, the grownups under Tillerson are coming to grips with reality and abandoning America’s slavish adherence to “democracy uber alles”.
Give peace a chance! What a novel idea.
