Syria: It's bigger on the inside

Today's space-time travel tips, brought to you by Bill O'Reilly and Chuckles Krauthammer:

And we just had the news that the Russians are preparing to send three ships from their Black Seaport to the Syrian port of Tardis (ph), where the Russians have a base and naval facilities, that Putin has revived for the first time since the Cold War.

But there's more going on than those pesky seaports! Here's the takeaway point:

KRAUTHAMMER: The second thing I picked up is the subtlety of the gibberish he offered on Europe, which was the only thing he can do, because the fact that he didn't have anything to say or to offer is the perfect reflection of the decline of American influence everywhere in the last three and a half years.

I think it's a bigger decline in U.S. influence in all area of the world -- in the Middle East, in Syria, in Europe, economically and every other way -- than any three and a half years since the end of the is Second World War.


You should probably plan, in other words, for a few more months of Greatest Hits, starting with the one at right.

Terrifying, also, to think that in addition to the capacity for time travel, they also have a "Black seaport" –presumably one that is either invisible to radar or one from which unsanctioned operations can be launched.

How can he not know Tartus? How can he not know the Black Sea? How can... oh, never mind.

Anyway, the Russians have been back in Tartus since 2008.
