Oh the primary threat is totally real. I just don't think the possibility that some Republican senators will be willing to vote against him after they're safe from primary challenges is real.

They're mostly just genuinely ####ty people.

It's baffling how republicans can show in public view just how hypocritical they are, do they not know there's video's of them speaking out for the very thing they are trying to defend now?

We are watching the political careers of 100's of GOP members go in the toilet before our very eyes for "Donald freaking Trump".

It's not really baffling. Their voters either don't punish them for it or straight up love this behaviour.

Iran Holds Military Drills Near Turkey, Tells It to Stop Syria Attack As Russia Accuses U.S. of 'Dangerous Game'
Quote:
Iran launched unannounced drills Wednesday near its border with Turkey as the Islamic Republic warned its neighbor not to move forward with its military operation in northern Syria and Russia criticized the United States for setting up a potentially deadly scenario in the region.
Iranian army chief Major General Abdul Rahim Mousavi oversaw what was described as surprise exercises designed to "measure the readiness, mobility and speed" of his forces in the country's northwest. Without specifying the exact nature of the maneuvers, Mousavi explained in an official release that the results of the drills were positive.
I wonder how Israel is feeling right now?

If Turkey and Iran went to war, just imagine all the money they could make selling arms to both sides.

I almost expect Trump to appoint Oliver North as an adviser.

Seriously, after arming Saddam Hussein against Iran (and also secretly arming Iran at the same time), and the effect it had on Kurds then, I am surprised they ever agreed to help the Americans in the first place. If they ever trust the Americans after this recent betrayal, I would be shocked.

Question is whether Israel was even warned in advance of the change in US strategy.

I doubt the Pentagon was warned in advance, never mind Israel.

Pretty sure they didn't help out in the Spanish American war either, the lazy bastards.

Only reason they weren't in Normandy was a medical deferment for bone spurs.

WTH. Those words actually left his mouth? Sometimes I am surprised one of his handlers doesn’t just knock him out whenever it appears that he is going to say something ridiculous.

WTF.... this is an outstandingly stupid and misinformed thing to say. This is just a disaster for US foreign policy, as well as for the GOP. This orange cockroach needs to be removed from the White House by any means necessary.

If that is a Fox news poll of their viewers I've gotta imagine the general public is sitting at 75%, so maybe Trump just got the number reversed.
