Usa Thread

Recommended Posts

And, if the world, excepting Turkey, Russia and their mates, are condemning the USA pull out of Syria, the question is, "Who is Trump working for?"

U.N. Security Council Calls Emergency Meeting  The U.N. Security Council holds a closed-door meeting on Syria today, after Turkey launched a military offensive against Kurdish fighters in the country’s northeast.

The meeting—called by the Security Council’s European members—comes days after U.S. President Donald Trump abruptly announced a drawdown of U.S. troops in the region.  

On Wednesday, Turkey launched a ground and air attack against towns held by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), causing thousands of people to flee.

At least five civilians and three fighters were killed.

Trump has seemed dismissive of the threat to the Kurds, even as members of Congress—including some of his staunchest Republican allies—have criticized the president’s decisions.

He doubled down on Wednesday, declaring that the Kurds were not such essential allies and telling an audience at a White House ceremony, “they didn’t help us in the Second World War, they didn’t help us in Normandy.”

Even GOP are running away now. Fox is showing polls with the top 3 Dems each leading Trump by 10 points. A someone said, a potted plant will beat Trump in the next election

Guilliani's henchmen were arrested at the airport, doing a runner.

Trump says he never heard of them, despite photos of them all smiling at a special dinner, for them, with Trump, at the Whitehouse.

People resigning left, right and centre, people testifying left right and centre.

Funnier than a funny thing.

I actually fully support any removal of our troops in war zones. However, I want it done in a manner that reduces residual loss of life. These things are tricky and should be done with care and consideration. There are numerous modern day and historical examples (Brits leaving Palestine for example) of not leaving the 'wrong way'.

Historically, especially in the Republicans will look for any excuse to impeach a Democrat. Cav posted many posts during the Obama administration from his favorite sites about an impending impeachment charge against Obama. The Republicans knew impeaching Clinton would never end with his conviction but did it anyway. 

Democrats on the other hand, only impeach when it's about one of their own. Nixon did a variety of clearly impeachable things that the Dems knew but didn't know anything about UNTIL Nixon's people broke into a Democrat office at the Watergate Hotel. Trump has done a myriad of impeachable offenses, pretty much uppon inauguration by not separating himself by his businesses and a few other things. They had impeachable offenses in the Mueller Report, but didn't do anything. What was the motivating factor for them to look to impeach in earnest? Trump went after a Democrat. It's the same in other things. Wall Street stole billions of dollars in the run up to the 2008 crash. There were numerous offenses how they violated statutes, regulations to put people in bad mortgages. Only one person got convicted. The one person (Madoff) who stole money from the rich.
