Do you think the war in Afghanistan can be "won?" What would winning the war in A-stan look like?

There is no prize if you where to win, but there is no way to win.

Time to cut bait and come home.

I know you said that he didn't run on a "peace" platform. but he did run on a (ridiculous imo) "drain the swamp" platform. Neocons are swamp creatures. Neocons help keep the swamp watered.

Neocons push for greater military spending. DJ has done that. You carried on about the Ds making an enemy of Russia. DJ just sold the Poles almost 300 Patriot missiles. Why are you silent on that? Why are you silent on DJ's push for new nukes?

Why are you silent on his inability to tell the truth, or even be consistent in his lies?


Do you see threads on those subjects?


One, i didn't get on the great O-bomber about being a warmonger until his second term. Now as much as i wish the new POTUS would just walk in and shut down all international military operations we 1. Know that would never happen and 2. Would cause more harm than good.

Yes, i feel making an enemy of russia is a terrible idea. I see the eu as a much bigger threat to liberty than the russians and again poland stands up to the eu so if we are going to be supplying anyone w/ arms maybe it should be them.

It appears as if they are pulling funding from other nations to buy our murder machines so i guess we just have to buy and keep them ourselves.

Are you new to the U.S.?? Ever had American history? WHEN was the last time Russia was our friend? AND how long have we been enemies?

But you think "MAKING" an enemy of Russia is a bad idea. As usual, I have no idea how your brain works.

What made me vote for Trump, simple. LW are new world order Fascism.

They say trust the Government..... I say Trust the Government But have the power to defend yourself from the Government.

Remember the native American

Remember the Armenians

Remember the Jews

Remember the Killing fields of Cambodia

Remember Black October in Cuba

Remember the mass executions by Mao and Stalin

Remember the Gypsies


remember words like "The Black hills will belong to your people as long as the sunshine and the grass grows"
Thanks from webguy4

I suppose that unlike you I have no need to show I'm superior to anyone, nor do I have any need for revenge for anything.

Do you have those needs?

I remember none of the above is attributable to "liberals."

Meanwhile, Trump supporters-to-be had called Obama a "neocon" who talked about peace while bombing Afghanistan at a record rate. Yet, I read yesterday that in 2017 under Trump three times as many bombs have been dropped compared to Obama's record-setting pace in 2016. And Trump talking about winning nuclear war, as he talks about designing and deploying new nukes. He goads Kimmy. He's escalated our role in Syria. He's continued global US military deployments in more than 130 nations.

He sure looks like a neocon to me.

Take the budget. A $1 trillion-plus deficit is projected. That's almost twice Obama's last tally. Should the economy turns south, $1 trillion will be a conservative estimate. The huge deficits of Bush's last year and Obama's first years were in response to stimulating an economy in collapse. No such situation exists today, just the opposite with inflation raising its ugly head. Cutting taxes, Trump's great achievement, in this economic environment might net votes but makes no sense.

Trump supporters-to-be continuously pointed out Obama's - and Hillary's - lies. Why then did you elect a president with legitimate claim to being the all-time record lying POTUS?

Then the charge, still being made, that Obama is a Muslim, an anti-christian Muslim. So, Trump supporters elect a man who's committed every sin in the Good Book, and who shows no contrition over having done so. In fact, he's proud of his sins.

You avoided addressing any of that TN.
Thanks from Hollywood
