Trump threatens Venezuela with unspecified 'military option'

Recommended Posts

Police person of the world is the U S and quite right too .. Without them waving the big stick about who else is gonna maintenir l'ordre mondial .. And the fat kid with the bad haircut had best sit down or the US's 45th will be giving him a slap and then it will end in tears ..

You don't seem to recall the outcomes of earlier US attempts at policing.

Yes but if you've missed some of the rhetoric flying about at the moment its hard not to get the impression D J T is not gonna make some of the errors of his predecessor's when it comes to getting the US's  " point of view " across .. As the North Korean kid is about to find out if he keeps pulling the US tail ..

Trump will try for a Thatchesque Faulklands Factor by invading Venezuela because there will be less "political fall out" than would've the case with NK.

Exactly as anyone who was near any of the 59 cruise missiles that were lobbed at Syria on 07/04/17 in response to the Syrians using poison gas will probably testify .. Not to mention the on going air campaign there ( tens of 000's of munitions and counting ) .. Sure the U S are not perfect when it comes to the peace person role , they can be selective , they can be a touch insensitive and no they are not always successful with their intervention's but consider this .. The first half of the 20th century saw two devasting wars the second of which need the detonating of  Atom bombs to bring to a close .. The belligerence and weight of presence of the USSR after the end of that conflict demanded that the West have a police person to look after their interest's and if you lived in Germany at the time even you're existence .. And who better for the role than the U S A .. so while some may look at where they haven't been so successful don't overlook the fact that without them being the World's cop for the last 70 odd yrs you ( or any of us come to that ) might not be here to exercise any disapproval ..

Trump is like a man who has taken the Viagra, got an erection and needs to stick his missile into something, anything will do before the drug wears off!

"Give me a war, any kind of war, anywhere, as long as it distracts" seems to be "Trump doctrine"

Recall more gentle times when Bush2 said in debate with Gore that he wouldn't be into "nation building" (never said against nation destroying, as in Iraq).

So much for "from this day forward, it will be America first"....

Maybe this is because the Chinese have slapped him down over NK.  

They haven't thats what's making the N K situation all the more dangerous ..  China is in a very difficult position it borders N K and understands the N K position probably better than the West ever could but at the same time It can be imagined that China are not happy about N K having Nuclear weaponry ..  and brandishing them about as they have recently to the point where they're taunting America is just asking for it .. Its like an over confident younger brother who's always looking to prove himself to his peers you know at some point he's gonna get a slap you just hope its not a proper kicking ..

In the past, the US has waded in when human rights are threatened in latin america.

 

No one called those presidents crazy…..but now its open season for the all kinds of unhinged people

to take a shot at him. Losing makes people twisted.

 

 

 

He isn't so great on human rights himself,it's only the checks and balance system which is keeping him under control. He definitely needs a war to prove what a big strong baby he is, the trouble is he has to win it.
