Explain.
Whether I think it's OK or not doesn't matter one whit. That's between Russia and Turkey.

Stereotype much? And I'm not a registered Dem but I did vote Dem in 2018 for the first time since 1976. I sent your boy Trump a message and will do so again in 2020. As for being anti-Israel--meshugenah! I do favor a two state solution to the Palestinian issue so I guess to far right nut jobs I must be anti-Israel.

Still have the same question... WHY are Democrats are so anti-Israel and so pro-Arab since Saudi Arabia and other Arab regimes, as you readily admit, are so brutal?

I have. They have no answer, and you can tell they've never even thought about why they favor brutal Arab regimes over Israel. For whatever reason, they don't think for themselves.

I see Robert O'Brien has been nominated for National Security Advisor. He's currently Special Presidential Envoy for Hostage Affairs at the State Department, so he's probably used to negotiating with deranged nut jobs. A smart choice for once.

Well, let's see here.

Michael Flynn was fired/let go/resigned after 24 days.

H.R. McMaster was fired/let go/resigned after about 400 days.

John Bolton was fired/let go/resigned after about 500 days.

Since all of them were known to have disagreed with at least some of Trump's policies right from the get-go, seems to me that Trump's "realization" process is getting slower all the time.

This is especially true of Bolton who has always been upfront and public about what he thinks. If Trump is just now "realizing" who Bolton is, he's mighty slow on the uptake.
