So, he's thinking about scaling up the war in Afghanistan because they have lots of minerals. And now he's open to the possibility of invading Venezuela, undoubtedly in part because of their oil.

Lovely. There is this part of me that almost wants to see him do it just to make all those people who voted for him because they thought he was an anti-internationalist "put America first" isolationist feel pretty darn embarrassed.

I didn't vote for him, and disagree strongly with a lot of his domestic proposals, but I suspect that he wants to project more of a belligerent attitude than is really the case, simply because he knows that it will further aggravate the Lefty-Loonies and cause a few more pieces of "organic fertilizer" to be thrown from the Monkey House.

Rave on, boys and girls!
OK.

Her face was classic. She looked like she wanted to kick him in the shin to shut him up.

If anybody knows anything about dishonest thread titles it would be you.

If he doesn't want to invade then what does he mean about military action?

Because some nations, and some situations, aren't worth even thinking about maybe possibly potentially kinda-sorta getting involved militarily.
