Yes. The people need to be liberated.


Well then the last thing they need is us there..... Our track record isn't so hot since WWII (with the exception of the Gulf War).


Time to turn this franchise around, start a winning tradition.


Sometimes it's better to take the bench after a few strike outs.

Maybe we have a few decades of letting people handle their own affairs.


Would you say the same of a man beating a woman? Or would you step in?


Hmmmm, I'd step in.... But that decision probably wouldn't result in the death of a quarter of a million civilians like our Middle East efforts post 9/11. In your defense, those people are in fact free now, free from this earth.

But hey, when you fall off the war horse, just get back on and try again, what's the worse that could happen, ammirite?


The worst that could happen is you do nothing because you have an active imagination.


So I imagined us f###ing up places worse than before we were there?

Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya.

I feel like you have an active selective memory.


I thought we were talking about Venezuela.


Sorry, I thought we were talking about a dude beating his girl.


Let them sort it out.


^^^ Things to say about Venezuela.


I guess a better question would be, what is your red line? Concentration camps? Genocide?

Actual question to ask: Is Venezuela on top of our oil?

Answer: Yes.

Solution: Send in the Recon Rangers.



It is how ATS degraded and reduced to trolls domain, what an arrogant comments…!

Yours what…?




Easy there killer.

Not everything is literal, and sometimes people use satire to get a point across.

Sometimes when you make something sound so ludicrous through a joke, people realize how batsh## it really is.

Kind of like Jon Stewart and how he did The Daily Show.

Sure those things are bad, but it only seems that's a red line when a country has resources.

So what are we doing about Myanmar or China?

Countless countries in Africa see what you just spoke of yearly.

I say no to sending troops into Venezuela.

One of the few reasons I take the abuse and support this President is for his non - interventionist policies.

I was not in favor of the times he bombed Syria. He lost points for that.

Stay out of it, except in a humanitarian or logistical way.






Ummm...I totally agree...and for the very same reasons...

The stinking red herring in this whole mess...is the humanitarian reasons...as someone else stated...the zoo animals have already been eaten...they have nothing left but one another...

And the simple minded in this country are flocking to emulate such wonderful socialist idealism...like moths to the flame...

All while this Venezuelan socialist nightmare implodes before their glazed eyes...

Things that make you go...hmmm...





YouSir



No joke, the irony has crossed my mind. But you know, as someone else mentioned, apparently Venezuela dissed the IMF. It might not be only the socialist policies that caused this. We all know the IMF and world banksters will destroy you if you don't heel to their demands.

There should be red lines, but only if they are for every country and not just the ones with resources.

And it shouldn't just be our job to go in there, other countries need to help too.

But if you just say genocide or concentration camps is a red line, than that would put us in a lot of countries.

We'd go bankrupt and then who are we helping? We'll just add 350~ million people to the stats of suffrage.

Ummm...it was sarcasm...not a statement of intent...

Sometimes the best way to illustrate...or shine the light of reason on the unreasonable...is through the use of heavy sarcasm...

Augustus uses this method frequently...and is very good at it...I use a heavy dose of sarcasm in most of what I write here as well...it’s just that we tend to be invested emotionally in things that are near and dear to us...and fail to see the sarcasm as we respond through that investment...

These are both examples of human nature that should concur...yet fail often...due to emotions often lack of perception in favor of expression...

Sad thing is that the man that Trump endorsed is also socialist.


It’s almost like this isn’t about socialism at all. Weird.

Ummm...they dissed the IMF...and then accepted loans from Russia...and China...to the tune of billions...

One wonders what the terms of those loans might have been...and the answer is influence...

Yea thats why i said he will lose others, cause they care about his promises.

i didnt vote for him and dont expect him to be able to keep such promises much anyway. I just realized it was rude to post and not address OPs question so inserted my answer.

My support for him is not from his campaign but from watching dems attack him and learning of the fbi and previous adminstrations actions against this nation.

So any action in V comes second to not losing this country to totalitarian govt like Clinton was planning. I support Trump even if he did a mass arrest on half the dem party.

Of course, the results could also be the exact opposite of your fears. I'm just curious why you're willing to forgo liberating these people from tyranny on a hunch.

It's not a hunch.....

A hunch is when a team loses 4 games in a row and you think they're going to win the next one.

Aside from that, I'm just not letting emotion sway my viewpoint on adding another conflict at best, war at worst to our agenda. We're already 6+ Trillion down because of war post 9/11.... The international community could come together on Venezuela, we don't have to be the world police, because honestly we suck at it.

We pick and choose who we're going to "save", because right now Saudi Arabia is still a top ally, we still assist in the war on Yemen which is considered the biggest humanitarian crisis at the moment, so where is the callers of good will on Yemen?

Because this subject is "would people support Trump", and he promised to dial back wars, so people can sugar coat it however they want or use semantics to paint people as assholes because they wouldn't get behind it, but anything can be framed like that.
