trump does know more than most generals regarding isis..


Generals know how to fight wars, as such, they have to be reigned in. Especially since we've had 20 years of COIN strategy to work through. There's a lot of establishment involved here. That means there's a vested interest in perpetual war. If that's what you want, then say so. Otherwise, let Trump do what is right.

You do have a certain level of objectivity that I greatly appreciate.

I find the accusation that you're a "Putin lovin Trump supporter" pretty thoughtless. Almost like this person has NEVER read any of your posts.


Thanks man, that means a lot.

Born in Texas (dad's side, ranchers), they're straight shooters. My mom's side is crazy Italians without a filter from upstate NY.

The only thing I care about what people think about me is if I'm genuine. I believe I am.

I'm definitely a biased ass.

Not even going to argue the point.

But I try to stay consistent and I admire that you do as well.

I'll meet you in the middle at passionate.

Focus your attention on a classic liberal (economic competition unassisted by subsidies or kick backs, isolationist foreign policy, induvidualism with equal rights)... You might get my swing vote.

As it stands I doubt it.

Engage me in debate though, the unhinged remark is laughable and an ego boost.

Too afraid to spar?

Very nice.

Be a straight shooter.

Don't follow any ideology, school of thought, or tribe.

Do you, and prove it.

Don't just paint someone as a target and damn everything they do.

I believe I am genuine too.

I always reserve the right to change my mind based on new information. ATS is a chronicle of my many changes politically and otherwise for almost 11 years.

I am not, however, necessarily objective. I believe in objectivity with regard to factual information, but how I interpret that information is colored by a myriad of data points and experiences that preclude any notion of a "non-biased" approach.

Life cannot be approached like a science experiment.

Will do, it's literally the most important thing to me.

I'm 29, and am very concerned with my generations ability to consciously find stances and stick with them... Before I rip on them too hard, it's a damn shame baby boomers raised them.

Being spoiled is one hell of a drug, ask most of either of those generations.

On behalf of all boomers, I'd like to apologize.


We should have beaten you more, not bought you bunches of useless crap, made you eat the broccoli, and taught you better.

We screwed up.

So you define "patriots" based on feels on how someone gets fired.

So why do you think we should be involved in a sovereign nations civil war in the Middle East?
