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!
You may be right. He certainly seems to enjoy conflict and pot-stirring, but it appears to me that perhaps he has better things to do with his time right now. Just a thought...

I'm pleased that an elitist clique and their legion of juvenile dupes lost a great deal of power -- nothing more. I revere my nation for its Constitution and a history of rule based upon principle and precedent rather than force; and I view religion, like sexuality, as a purely private matter.
That is a childish way to communicate with the nation. This is not a school yard brawl.

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.
I thought this thread was about Venezuela?

The strategy could be applied to a number of rogue states, but with Hugo Chavez removed from the picture, I don't see Venezuela as much of a problem. But I'm sure that there are a few here who are as ready to lionize any petty Marxist as they are to demonize Trump.

Conservatives are always quick to blame "decadence", "deviance", "gays" for the fall of Rome.

The real core reason was that that empire was way overextended.

I'll just say: Afghanistan, Middle East, North Korea, Venezuela.

Good luck with any tax cuts when our leader incinerates your tax dollars in fire and fury.

What's wrong with you libs, seriously? None of you know the first thing about Venezuela. Venezuela isn't just a failed state, it's a criminal state. A cabal of drug-trafficking army generals has taken control of Venezuela

And they are bolstered by Cuba's intelligence agencies. https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...zuela-protests

Boys and girls implies that you think what you are responding to is juvenile, correct? Yet on your next point you basically say is ok because trump wants to troll the left but that's not juvenile? Not to mention he.is supposed to president of the us not the right.
