Whoever wants to, the insurrectionist there, and if comrades around the world wanted to go help, but not as a country using imperialistic military to blow up another country to get their oil

Dear god.

We handed over the keys to a moron.



Well, they were already in the hands of a moron with Obama.

Just a new one?


Obama wasn't a moron, just calculating. This one is truly a moron.


I would trust Trump over Obama any day.

Obama hates successful white guys.


All due respect, but that is just stupid.

We cannot have a reasonable discussion when you spit such nonsense.

At least it's not followed by a double negative. As per usual, nobody ain't got no patience for that.

Okay..as a Trump supporter and a believer that the use of our military (I served) should always be an option when our nation or allies are in danger I find this kind of disturbing. Just because you have a great military doesn't mean you need to keep going to it as the first option when discussing foreign affairs.

So you want to save them from themselves with some good old fashioned American kick ass ?

Huh? I admit I'm up late and maybe there's some room for misinterpretation in my post but no...that's not what I said at all.

Trump wants to show his full virility, since he can't grab them by the *uss* anymore, he might as well grab Maduro or Lill Kim by the *alls, and what's that thing that makes men out of boys, WAR!

For a douche that was too chicken to serve in the military, he sure likes to threaten with our military. I have pretty much come to the conclusion that he is certifiably insane. I am a veteran and do not want to see my brothers and sisters sent off to some other land, to fight another war that there is no end to. Don't people ever learn.


He's just another chickenhawk. Our government is full of them.

Yet another example of how uninformed the left is. This has nothing to do with supporting Trump. Your post is a prime example of how willfully ignorant the left has become. You apparently do not understand the world wide ramifications of what it would mean to allow Venezuela to implode.

Keep making it about identity politics. That's all the left is capable of these days.


So then rather than call me a leftist and proclaim me guilty of identity politics, why don't you explain it? Tell me how Venezuela imploding is going to cause massive ramifications around the world, and more specifically to America.

And we have the right to meddle in the affairs of yet another country? What gives us that right?

'Hello, I'm from the United States Government. I'm here to help.'

I have the strange feeling that if Trump starts a war, the former allegedly united states will stand alone there, no backing from the former "friends and partners" anymore.
When the hawks spreaded that Guam thing, the first i heard in the european news was that NATO has nothing to do with an attack on Guam, just because it is NOT NATO´s sphere of influence.
Means, NATO could help the former USA, but is not bound by contract.
Doesn´t sound like the rest of the NATO, except the "US" parts that use the NATO as their war toy, are willing to take part in a war a´la Iraq(and the "reasons" to attack iraq).

A war just to deflect from the problems the Trump "government" causes, at home and in the whole world.
I guess NK didn´t work that well, China might have phoned with the WH.

So, the next day it is Venezuela with it´s proven oil reserves...

Who wonders, the Maduro dictatorship(?) in Venezuela is against former US influence, against CIA influence, against former US regime changes...

I have the strange feeling that the whole sane western world would turn against the former USA, in case of a war that only should deflect from the Trmup clown and the puppet masters that control him(as far as they can control a mental ill individual), the former US warhawks, the former US military industrial complex, the former US big money!

If somebody behaves like a cowboy that "thinks" with only his guns instead of his brain, the people will see him just as that cowboy, ready to kill and then maybe to talk. Who would believe any of the propaganda that comes from such a cowboy that got caught lying red handed many times before?

The sane world is not going to fight another former US war, the divided states of Trump wanted to be isolated, now you get isolated, as it seems. The people don´t back you anymore here in Europe, it´s just some sycophant governments, that work not for their people anymore, that back that former US and it´s warmongering to deflect from the Trump problem and for sure, for former US profits!

How many countries does it take to conquer before you have obtained most of the planets resources? How many will it take to implement a new world order? We are going after countries, taking their resources and taking over their country. One by one and it's always the same damn story. These leaders are starving their people and killing them all the while we are aiding the radicals/rebels to insure the country is in chaos.

Good God man... wake up people. Right, left, middle, it don't matter these leaders of the US have had a plan for the last 60 years or more to take over the world. The American people are so naive if they believe and buy into the same ole bs.

Focusing on our own right now isn't something Trump is going to do. He is a salesman... they lie.

He will continue to do the same thing we been doing. He knows that and has been knowing what the real plan is all the while. Stop being fooled yall. This isn't going to stop until people rise up here and make it stop. They know we won't. We are too busy being spoon fed by their lies.

Yes and before Chavez (not that he wasn't a monster in his own ways) that oil (with back door help from the US) benefited the few while the majority literally starved. Chavez successfully led a Socialist revolution and nationalized oil but the old oil tycoons never gave up, the US aided in a coup but the people won Chavez back. Chavez died and Maduro is either a complete failure or a traitor to the people... either way Venezuela as it was, is lost.

It's a civil war now, well a heightened civil war and oil plus whatever deals the Venezuelan capitalists made with the US decades ago, is the reason Trump is putting his nose in it despite campaigning to be less interventionist. Maybe we can pay for our wall now. Of course if we really wanted to help out of the goodness of our hearts we could keep a door open for Venezuelan refugees. *gasp*

I would like to point out that up here in MA, the ONLY country to provide heavily discounted oil for our fuel-assistance program for the poor was Venezuela.
