We interrupt this blog to take you over to the State Department in Washington for an important announcement:

"Ladies & Gentlemen of the Press Corps, welcome to the State Department’s new briefing format, which we're calling: "Whose line is it anyway?" The answer to that question is of course: 'It's OUR line & there'll be no improvisation at all". So…sit back & relax to 'Sounds of the Seashore', whilst Heather Nauert gives you your lines...

Breathe in deeply...and relax...as you hear only the sound of my voice...

  1. Our presence in Syria is purely to complete the eradication of ISIS and the prevention of its return. It has nothing whatsoever to do with removing Assad, grabbing the oilfields, building the Qatari pipeline or stuffing the Russians
  2. Saudi Arabia is our trusted partner against terrorism, and has every right to murder Yemenis in order to prevent the spread of the evil Iran
  3. Oh, I almost forgot – Iran is evil, and is responsible for every terrorist incident anywhere…ever...
  4. Israel has every right to defend itself, and I mean EVERY right. It doesn’t matter how many Palestinians are slaughtered or maimed, it’s all their own fault. All Israeli strikes are in response to severe provocation, which will not be tolerated
  5. Russia is to blame for everything else

Aaaand...3-2-1…you’re back in the room..."
