The right wing isolationist policies are resulting in the isolation of the the USA from our allies and pushing them into coalition with our enemies. If we get into a military confrontation with Iran, we'll be on our own, with a hostile power supplying them.

There was also a video about Trump signing a Guatemala deal, but no information about Senate ratification of the treaty, and no congressional members in attendance. It's not clear that Trump doesn't realize that he can blow them up, but he has no power to make treaties.

I don't think it's as bad as people make it out to be. With that said - the move of the financial capital to China is already underway and the tariffs are in part meant to help them develop their internal consumer base. Everything happens for a reason.

We wouldn't be in a conflict with Iran --- nor would we care what Iran could do --- if not for our entanglements in the Middle East.

Iran is an existential threat to Israel and Saudi Arabia. Let THEM deal with it on their own, no? Iran can't strike us if they tried, other than by way of terrorists or something. They'd be quashed before their ships ever made it out of the Persian Gulf, and they have no missiles that can reach us.

It was deemed a non-binding political agreement, rather than a treaty. Thus it isn't legally binding for domestic law and M. Trump was free to repudiate it. Time will tell whether that was a good idea or not.

What? Our allies haven't done anything for us ever. And what enemies? China? And who else?
