He isn't so great on human rights himself….

Venezuela doesn't have nukes, but does have oil.

 

It would be much less likely to spin out of control than N. Korea and would provide a nice distraction from health care, Russia, N. Korea, tax breaks for the wealthy, raising the debt limit, etc... etc...

 

but even easy targets have a way of spinning out of control, Vietnam,Irag etc. One would have thought that they would have learned from the past.

I am pretty much sure this is just rhetoric.   It's a civil conflict with virtually no impact on the US.   Until there is an impact, such as large number of refugees fleeing to the US in boats, ala Africa to Europe, the impact will be minimal.   

 

I am not even sure if there is a side in the conflict worth supporting.   As far as the oil is concerned, it will be there and it will be sold on the international market, so no need to grab territory or make an attempt to gain some kind of control.   It won't work.

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.

Since the JFK administration USA is the undisputed and foremost warmongering country on this planet!

It is USA who create seemingly unstable situations in many countries. USA then 'justify' to the world that invading and killing is their 'policing' right citing "humanity" and "democracy"; Their infestation is nothing but to satisfy their insatiable thirst for oil and continued strive for world dominance.

Saying that a military option is available (if necessary), is not really threatening to use military force.

The deflector in chief does seem to be itching for a war. Perhaps he feels it will help his sagging poll approval numbers. Let's see. Where should we invade first? North Korea? Iran? Syria? Venezuela? No doubt the last would be the easiest. Perhaps he is trying to pick a patsy nation in the same way Tiny George II picked Iraq? That sure worked out well, didn't it? 

 

His ignorance knows no bounds. His ambitions rival those of Bush Jr. and several others I can name, that went down into the dustbin of history. One can only hope that Kelly will put his foot up his butt.

And why is Trump so concerned over Venezuela? Millions of starving people dying in Africa and elsewhere, and he doesn't give a shittt about them! Could it be oil? Hmmm.....

trump appears to be bucking for some kind of war because the Russian investigation is quickly closing in on him. Classic tactic of corrupt authoritarians with very low approval. This situation is not funny.

Not funny at all:sad:

People in Venezuela are suffering and dying.  How is the warmonger U.S. responsible for that?

 

BTW:  You're right about the "world dominance"...Google, Apple, Amazon, etc.  :cheesy:
