International laws?

Iraq must not of had laws stating certian groups are less than human or that some citizens are legally subject to genocide. Otherwise the Iraq invasion would have been legal and not crap all over the UN charter.

Saddam was a dictator, Trump's comment could be taken as genocide is ok because it's Iraq, the place terrorists get their diploma. They were probably terrorists.

Trump should do some interviews where he actually gets asked hard questions. Love to hear his POV on white phosphorus and Palestine... He'd probably think it's pretty cool dropping that stuff on all those terrorist. After all international laws and rights only protect terrorists right?

You pretty much put my thoughts in words in your 2 posts.

F off Hillary. I will go with the 0.0001% chance.

Well being honest Kim was groomed to be leader, he has family older than him.

He may have took over sooner than expected but he was expected to be leader, his praises are ignorant at best because he wasn't some uni graduate suddenly becoming a leader.

Clinton will be roughly 4 more years of Obama. I don't see that as a bad thing. I don't see it as the perfect situation either, but it certainly wouldn't be the end of the country or even make our lives much harder to live.

I was at this speech and actually he said he was a "horrible person" that did "one thing very well". Saying that a horrible dictator was good at killing at terrorists is not praise, just a fact. Im sure a few dumb libs will eat up this spin but it always ends up openening the eyes of many would be trump supporters who may be on the fence. When leftists post titles like "Trump Praises Sadam!" they are only exposing their desperation. After a simple google search people begin to ask themselves.....why do they need to spin???

Getting rid of Saddam was the biggest screwup in modern history. People in the middle east need a dictator with a heavy hand. Just the way it is or you end up with the cluster you have today. Remove the dictator and these people go crazy killing each other for whatever reason. The middle east was stable before we decided to remove the dictators that kept the peace in the only way possible.

Trump at worst will be "4" more years of Obama. Clinton will be "8" more years of Obama as Obama was 8 more years of Bush and so on.

The cycle needs to be stopped and Trump gives you a .0001% chance of that.

Hillary pretty much has had her chance in office and this weekend demonstrated not only that the System is corrupted but she is a huge part of that Corruption when Bill met with Lynch during her ongoing criminal investigation .

Trump's Presidency would look NOTHING like an Obama Presidency. If you believe that, I don't think you are following politics as closely as you think you are.

Sorry but Trump is no match to the Oligarchs, perhaps your hate for him might be altering your perception on how money runs this gov't? Look at the Princeton Study and Harvard Professor how they concluded that America is in fact an oligarch where big money always gets what they want.

The best he can do is Talk Crazy Sh1T and expose something with his big mouth and bring corruption to the forefront even if by accident.

Same as I expected and wanted From Bernie. I didn't expect Bernie to implement socialist system only to bring Corruption to the forefront.


In the end its a moot point really because Hillary will be the POTUS , but not because of the people. She proved it this week that she and the corrupted System are one in the same and the System wants her.

Look!! Krazysh0t is making a prediction!!

Just to poke at you, I will definitely remember that you said this. I'd love to smack you and your optimistic foresight in the head, lol.

I sure hope you're right.

I think you have too high of an expectation for the oligarchs. As much power as they wield, it isn't total. Obama's Presidency with the movement of gay rights as well as marijuana legalization has proven that the people's power still exists too.

As for Trump, he IS one of the oligarchs. He's even admitted it before.

What astonishes me are the so called conservative "patriots" that claim to revere and praise the constitution; support a man that would shred and ignore the Constitution, Bill of Rights and rule of law.

I doubt if they can even see this obvious hypocrisy.

A clear case of extreme ideology getting in the way of your common sense.

Support a wanna be dictator....careful it just might bite you in the ass.

Paraphrasing to create a political lie seems to be quite common. There has to be a name for this sort of fallacy.

While it might not be completely total, its is certainly a good percentage. Even when you think you win you likely lose because of hidden * in regulations that take years to come to fruition.





When majority of citizens disagrees with economic elites or with organized interests, they generally lose. Moreover, because of the strong status quo bias built into the U.S. political system, even when fairly large majorities of Americans favor policy change, they generally do not get it.





As for Trump, he IS one of the oligarchs. He's even admitted it before.

While he might be part of the Elites, he himself is not an Oligarch and would be hard pressed to take them on.

However, Hillary is also an Elite herself despite lying about not being one. I don't know of to many people that aren't part of the elite club that can have their spouse meet with the Attorney General of the United States in secret while they are being actively criminally investigated and have nothing happen , except have no files charged?

No, I find your assessments more ascertainable than most. I poked fun at you because seeing you wrong would be like Phage suddenly discovering that chem-trails exist. Lighten up, I admire your knowledge and straightforwardness.

But, since you've professed your support for Hillary, I have moved you to the "dangerously optimistic" category.

Oh. Don't get me wrong. I agree that money has FAR too much influence in politics. However, I also think it is a bit more complicated than how it is insinuated to be working on ATS. There is a lot of money that is in politics that is also in conflict with other large sums of money in politics. In fact, every large sum of money has its own angle behind it that puts it in conflict with another large sum of money in politics.


While he might be part of the Elites, he himself is not an Oligarch and would be hard pressed to take them on.

What makes you believe that? Because he said so? Everything he's said and the way he presents himself SCREAMS oligarch and contempt for poor people. Though I imagine that most Trump supporters won't recognize that about him until after he loses and some time has passed from this election.

There is no "club". It's just rich people who sometimes have interests that align. Hillary's group of elites aren't the same people as Trump's group of elites. To pretend there is just presents an overly simplistic view of the way our government works.

To tell the truth I wonder sometimes what has liberation done for Iraq I hate to think that Iraq under Saddam was a better country.

Look the nation today, they have gone backwards.

Sometimes even totalitarian governments in volatile and dangerous countries in certain regions are better than nothing than terrorist groups in charge, look at the middle middle east right now.



I think that it's better to ask 'What Iraq???' at the moment, because the country no longer exists as it used to.
