We are the country that defeated the Nazis in WWII. And now this President has reduced us to the point we are begging a terrorist organization, who this President has evidently armed as well, to allow us to evacuate our own people!!!!

Nigel Farage: 'No way' British parliament would vote for military cooperation with America under Biden admin

Farage warns international terror threat increasing after Afghanistan pullout

NIGEL FARAGE: The medium-term problem is the resurgence of international terror, already evidence that extremist jihadi groups all over the world have taken great cheer from what the Taliban have done in Afghanistan. And so if we do find ourselves back engaged and, you know, let's be honest, the last few years, we've not seen major terrorist atrocities in the West. But if they start to happen again and we start to think, well, how do we go out again and try and stop these cells that are spreading international terror? How can we do it with the Americans? How can we do it with an ally that is treating us with contempt and betrayed us and into the bargain, many of our own citizens?

Wow, how did Greece end up with more casualties than the US??
If you ever go to Greece, highly recommend the Acropolis Museum. It is amazing how many times the Acropolis has been completely destroyed or partially destroyed due to all the different groups that fought on modern day Athens. Germans actually raised their Nazi flag on the Acropolis site in early WWII and stayed there for a couple of years.

Then why bring up a chart displaying of all things a DEATH TOLL, then reference Russia who just happened to have more deaths than the US based on population. By definition Poland had more than Russia so yes, you did say that.
You do know the Russians captured Berlin, right? They also had the most casualties. Poland is at the top because the list is sorted by % population that died in WWII.

But my major point was that we weren’t THE country that defeated the Nazis. Sorry I didn’t post a photo of Russian soldiers with Hitler’s body.

I just figured everyone could make the correlation without me spoon-feeding it to them.

Apparently not everyone. Congratulations on proving me wrong on that point. Pat yourself on the back.

Yea, but only to avoid a diplomatic incident because Eisenhower (with encouragement from Roosevelt) decided to divert resources to a different part of Germany.

Maybe you can expand some on Trumps quagmire in the Middle East?

Trump ended reliance on Middle Eastern oil.

In 1995, Congress adopted the Jerusalem Embassy Act, urging the federal government to relocate the American embassy to Jerusalem and to recognize that that city — and so importantly — is Israel’s capital. Trump finally accomplished that although Clinton, Bush, and Obama all promised they would follow through.

Morocco, UAE, Bahrain, and Sudan all agreed to normalize relations with Israel. The Trump administration negotiated each of these.

As of May 31 this year a U.S. service member has not been killed in action since March 11, 2020.

https://www.militarytimes.com/news/...atalities-overseas-were-the-fewest-since-911/

Obama started a draw down of US Service members overseas and Trump continued the pattern.

NATO contributions to defense spending. In 2014 3 of 29 NATO Countries were spending 2% of their GDP on defense. By 2020 10 countries were spending 2% or more of their GDP on defense. Not only that every one of the 29 members of NATO were spending more of their GDP on defense.

Our own US border was becoming more secure.

And let's not forget, no new wars.

There were certainly some setbacks but Trump had a far more successful foreign policy than any president in recent history.
How did trump end reliance on ME oil?

Stupid about AGW!!
For those who think AG Barr wasn't Trump's stooge

  • William Barr texted Trump's impeachment lawyer saying, "You are a STAR."
  • He sent the text while Trump's defense team was wrapping up arguments in his first impeachment.
  • Barr repeatedly went to bat for Trump throughout his presidency

Meese was a Reagan stooge, Reno was a Clinton stooge, Ashcroft and Gonzales both Bush stooges, Holder was an Obama stooge, Garland is a Biden stooge. Is it surprising that Trump’s guy was any different?

A 2019 tweet from the then-CNN contributor (Jen Psaki) called for transparency in the early weeks of then-President Donald Trump's Ukraine scandal that ultimately resulted in his impeachment.
