This "concentional wisdom" (more like "conventional folly") covers both major parties over multiple decades. So far off track we can no longer even see the rails.

Bit of a sticky wicket with Imran Khan seeking to bowl over Nawaz. But unlike Iran, the west could care less about Pakistan, which actually has nuclear weapons. ::crickets::

Instant karma. The recent outburst of bogus pseudo-Constitutionalism in Congress is abruptly exposed for the utter fraud it is. Pols put on the spot to come down on one side or the other immediately search out a fence to straddle, yet they demand courage and potential sacrifice of everything from our young people. Meanwhile, Obama gets all "sanctimonious" because "folks" got beheaded. Don't know about anyone else, but my mom taught me that if you're going to have more than one standard, you apply the higher one to yourself. Otherrwise you're a scoundrel and a hypocrite, which is what Obama has made of us all.

I do wish these reports from Syria would specify which "rebel groups" are involved. If this was a government victory over ISIS, that's big news. If it was FSA, much less so. Etc.

Political butt covering at its most obvious. If the weapons weren't for the Israeli taking, then (1) what were they doing warehoused in Israel, and (2) how were the Israelis able to walk into the warehouse and just take stuff without any paperwork specifying what they were to take? Come on, I was in the US military, we never got a damned thing without paperwork.

"Kidnapping", "abductors", there's no need to parrot Israeli propaganda language. Soldiers get captured in war, by captors.
