Some Wins And A Few Huge Losses

Recall that we did not favor any candidate for President, Dem or Rep. Trump got in we think because of the disdain and condescension BHO showed to those in the middle of the country. Whatever.

We have been partially pleased with some of the things he has accomplished. We abhor his manner. Same asshat as he was on his RV show two decades ago. He can't keep his mouth shut.

I strongly oppose tariffs. I am not sure if he really likes tariffs or is using them as a club to negotiate. That has been a sore point for me.

This week he really pissed me off, with his wrong-headed announcement of pulling out of Syria. Exiting Syria is only the headline. What it really means is that he rolled over for Turkey. Turkish dictator Erdogan wants to kill Kurds wherever they are. Some are in Syria and have been fighting al-Assad. This will advance al-Assad's dream agenda for Turkey to be a new califate over the region. The Kurds have been killing ISIS not only in Syria but in Iraq. They have been true allies to us. They do not seek territory, but only to protect their enclaves and live in peace. We have fucked the Kurds. We have fucked ourselves also. Our credibility as a counterterrorism partner is shredded. This is a win for Turkey, Russia, and Iran who all have supported al-Assad.

Our exit means violence will escalate in the region. We have spent billions fighting Muslims, thousands of lives have been lost. Now we abandon the fight. Maybe we could never have put a lid on it. But, we never really tried. It was always half measures. Look for increased violence next year. And it will come here.

  1. I tend to agree with your comments on the military pullout. I’m also not to happy about the “forced” resignation of General Mattis.
    Trump is definitely not a politician, he’s a businessman used to getting his own way all the time. He is not willing to take advice, hence the revolving door with White House staff.
    I’m feeling now that Trump will not run for second term. He will either bow out and give as a reason all the resistance and obstruction from the Democrats as well as from many in the GOP for his inability to accomplish his campaign promises. He’s an outsider, not one of the boys.
    He’ll find that other republicans will challenge him for the running in 2020. He will not run as the incumbent.
    A business mind cannot run government.
    I have yet to see it happen. Government is far more corrupt than private business.
    To think all this crap started because a disgusting individual named Hillary, lost.
    Wait till the real shit show starts January 20,2019. Buckle up for the nonsense
