So, when Obama dropped dropped ordinance in Syria, that was an invasion?

Personally, I don't want any involvement with Venezuela at all. Leave them to their own ruin.

It diverts attention from the 'investigation.'

It gets his fanboys all tingly and excited because they can fantasize that he is 'strong,' despite his history of cowardice.

If we reduced our military spending, closed our foreign bases, left the UN and NATO and became more isolated, we wouldn't have to worry about the Bushs, Clinton, Obama or Trump doing such things.

At some point, that little troll is going to have some sort of system set up to launch if he doesn't check in.

No, but I did see her chuckle when the reporter asked about crushing the US into jelly. But then she saw the boss react seriously and went sourpuss. His own cabinet knows better than the rest of us what an idiot he is.

The most painful component of the equation here is that Seoul lies close enough to the Korean DMZ that North Korea can still take out its resentments upon innocent civilians -- something the Kiddie Krusaders here .are eager to attribute only to Trump -- and never to the petty tyrant who picked the fight in the first place.

Because The Donald is in political trouble and he would love to have an excuse to divert people's attention from it.

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!
Interesting you say that kind of like the christian Reich wing in this country, and I suppose your Happy that trump is just a giant orange troll
