Take A Chill PIll

Did you see the news that a Russian destroyer had passed through Istanbul on its way from the Black Sea to the Mediterranean Sea from which (gasp) American ships last night launched cruise missiles toward Syria?  Some in the media want you to hear that news and start shouting "oh my God, oh my God!"  Actually, the news is no big deal.  The Russian ship is on the way to the port of Tartus in Syria where Russia has a naval base.  In fact, Russian navy ships go through the Bosporus often since it is the only way to make that journey.  Further, the Russian navy ship was on its way towards Istanbul going to Syria before the cruise missiles were launched.

It's time for many in the media to just calm down.
