Off to war with the Trumpster

Since Trump is doing a fine job pissing off the rest of the world, where do you think he'll call us into arms? To "Make America Great Again", you need a "Greatest Generation" title. You can't get this without a massive warlike involvement. So where to?

I don't think we're going to war. However, things are going to be very tense between the US a lot of countries around the world, except Russia of course.

Hardly. Putin won't need our help, and Trump sure as hell isnt going to stand by the Baltic states when Russia invades.

I just assumed Trump would do Putin a solid and invade himself, and then hand them over to Russia afterwards.

Re: Off to war with the Trumpster

Well, I read today that U.S. intelligence officials are warning Israel to be careful about what classified information they release to Trumpy's administration lest it be given to Russia, so my answer is "everywhere but Russia."

I feel like we'll be teaming up instead.

I'm no Trump fan but something seems wrong with our intelligence warning other countries about our president.

WARNING TO US ALLIES

Do not share classified information with the Trump baby. The Trump baby is immature and may not be able to keep from tweeting classified information or sharing it with adversaries including Russia.

I don't see the harm when our allies could've figured that out for themselves just by reading Twitter.

Not only that, he openly insults them and tries to undermine their efforts.

It was Democrats who were sabre rattling with Russia. You must have missed the last few months of current events.

I could see a Taiwan/China shooting war starting pretty quick.

It's not like Russia made Europe nervous with their Georgia and Ukraine holidays...

I see a free trade zone opening up between China and South America and Central America before I see a shooting war. They are going to bury the US in trade over the next 4 years.

Re: Off to war with the Trumpster

After working 10 years as a military contractor and looking at a 10% spend increase in the DOD budget, this tells me we are very close to a minor to major involvement. All points to Iraq and Syria deployments with considerable ground troops. The president has three major powers on his portfolio, protect borders (pending wall), immigration (already in progress with some delays), and war powers (pending). We are close to executing war powers, hope you are not in a fighting age or have kids/family in that age range, it could get ugly.

Re: Off to war with the Trumpster

Your paranoia over war is remarkable.

We've been "at war" since 9/11. Although, not officially. And I'm not sure we ever will be at war officially.

Iraq and Syria NEED considerable troops to keep the area in check. Nobody else is doing it. And Obama sure as hell didn't do it over the last 8 years. The policy of letting ISIS fight Assad so they could "neutralize each other", is no longer part of foreign policy.

Hopefully, we'll see a US-Russian alliance in Iraq and Syria to defeat ISIS.

i kept warning many trumpsters who has kids in fighting age, if war erupts, your kids might come home disabled, their responses were all frightening. one said it will be a nuclear holocaust, with nuclear flairs being angels described in the bible sending chosen ones to heaven (???!!!). another said God will protect her babies from harm(ok...) and one said he doesnt mind losing his kids if it means to make America Great Again (???)
