Anyone up for some nation building?

Trump: 'I'm not going to rule out a military option' in Venezuela

President Donald Trump on Friday said he would not rule out a "military option" in Venezuela.

"We have many options for Venezuela, including a possible military option, if necessary," Trump said told reporters at his New Jersey golf club on Friday.

The president did not answer whether American troops would lead that potential operation.

"We don't talk about it. But a military operation, a military option, is certainly something we could pursue," he responded.

Well.  I am old enough to remember when people said part of Trump's appeal was that he was going to turn inward, stop the endless wars and only use the US Military defensively.

How, exactly, is Venezuela a threat to the United States? The answer is that it isn't.  This would be nation building at its worst.

I have said it before: The man has no guiding political philosophy or ethos.   He has no coherent worldview.  He is just whimsically making it up as he goes along.

We got us a serious case of kulturkampf going on in the US.   In fact, there is a lot of populist vs the elitists angst in Europe too.  This too shall pass... I hope.

RD, his actions and whatever thinking he is allowing himself, suggest that he is not even good at a game of Checkers much less the more cerebral, Chess! How, then, is victory for him possible?

Then just shut to F$%K up.  Ah really do not think Trump understand the magnitude of being president of these United states.  The Man is ah Nut case.  How can anyone work for him?

Every FRIGGING day you listen the TV or read the papers, there is something crazy about what he is saying.  I just can't get how on earth the American people allow this to happen.  I am in total shock here.

THE ARSE HOLE IN NK, must have ah plan, but our ARSE Hole in America do not have one.  He just shoots from the hip, without an ounce of thinking.  He is 10 times worst than the one in NK.
