As long as we know where we stand. You own that you're more concerned about the citizens and their livelihoods of a foreign country. And I'll happily own that I care more about my fellow countrymen FIRST, and then those way beyond our borders after we've fixed our own issues.

Quite tired of being The World's Police/Aid Force... and getting crapped on by other countries when they bitch about how we do or don't do it.
And I’ll own that Trump is destroying our country’s credibility around the world daily and you cling blindly to him like a god.

Many of the people who were being held captive caught up in the middle of this were all part of a global organization which has claimed responsibility for mass killing events or have been instrumental in influencing mass terror events in the US..right here on our own soil.
Ah, the guys Obama called "the JV squad"? Those guys?

Netanyahu on Kurds

“Israel strongly condemns the Turkish invasion of the Kurdish areas in Syria and warns against the ethnic cleansing of the Kurds by Turkey and its proxies,” “Israel is prepared to extend humanitarian assistance to the gallant Kurdish people.”

On US/Israel ties right now

“We very much appreciate the important U.S. backing, which has only increased greatly in recent years (but) we always remember and apply the basic rule that guides us: Israel will defend itself, by itself, against any threat,”

This is easily rectified.

But you wouldn't like the answer.

Why do we care what other countries think of us or how they view us?

Why can't we take this same approach?

I haven't forgotten your request for my personal thoughts. I actually thought of it last night and realized I need to do my research to remember all of the questionable things Trump has done over the last 3 years. It will be a long list...I'll most likely send it to you in a private message. It will take several days.

Off the top of my head..the things Trump has done which should be questioned

Removing funding for 81 teen pregnancy programs (not abortion..just teen pregnancy prevention) around the country

appointing Tom Price to the head of the HHS

Denying the Trump Tower meeting ever happened

Appointing Scott Garrett to the head of the Export-Import Bank

Putting Jarred Kushner in charge of Peace between Israel and Palestine

Removing public WH visitor logs

Being involved with Manafort in any capacity at all

Taxpayers spending 230+ years (so far) of presidential yearly salary for Trump to travel to his private golf club in Florida and spend time there

Allowing his daughter Ivanka to hold an appointed position while still managing the affairs of Trump International Hotels

Giving $10 billion to South American Countries to fight their issues leading to mass immigration while claiming he has no funding and needs $8 billion to build a wall in the US to stop immigration

Cutting legal immigration Visas drastically

The Trade Wars

Giving a speech in front of thousands and thousands of boy scouts and recounting his Party lifestyle as a young New Yorker and then reliving his Election Night and Fake News to them

Firing a Sec of State by Twitter

Saying he knows more about the ME than Generals

Threatening with Nukes several different times
You dont agree with these things. Honestly you could make lists like this about every president.

Is he a choir boy? Hell no

He has tried to succeed at all his campaign promises. Most of the time it's just someone telling people what they want to hear. I guess him being a business man and not a politician is the difference. The politicians lie their butts off , they just do it charismatic with a smile as they rob you.

Endless wars in Muslim countries no big deal, who cares about caskets landing in Delaware anyway.Think of all the good will the Muslims have for the USA.Follow the Money, like the couple billion paper $ dropped of in Iran by Obama before Prez Trump took office, business as usual I guess.

While I disagree with Trump's move, I find it laughable at some of the people most outraged about this withdrawal. The press has been a freaking joke. Very few made a stink about the US abandoning Iraqi allies when Obama pulled out (leading to ISIS). And now they are upiddy about Trump.

My guy = good job.
Your guy = bad job.
no matter the job.

like clockwork.

We are oil and gas exporters because of our Prez, no reason for E3’s and E4’s to die for oil bound for others. Finally a Prez who’s gat heart and a mind.

Instead of condemning Trumps decision why doesn't Germany, France and UK send their own troops in to replace our troops that were pulled out? Geographically they are much closer to the situation than the U.S.
France had boots on the ground with the US and they are withdrawing their troops as well with the US withdrawal.

Bahrain, France, Germany, Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE, UK, Denmark and Netherlands all were providing air support and have suspended their operations with the US withdrawal

Ya but those countries could still continue even though the U.S. is withdrawing.
