We’ll probably never know why he got fired or what goes on in the Oval Office.

What we do know is that Trump wants out of Afghanistan in the best way possible.

And I can’t argue with that.

Damn right. What did the Taliban do that was so bad, again?


Well, you might want to ask members of the armed forces who have been dealing with the Taliban for the last 18 years.

The simple truth is, just like the Iraq war, the war in Afghanistan was based on a lie. Bin Laden and 19 out of 21 of the terrorists were Saudis, but that was too big a hornet's nest to poke, so Afghanistan was selected as an alternative target for the US' collective wrath.


No argument there. The motives for both conflicts were specious to say the least--lies within lies within lies.
But the Taliban was harboring members of AQ; they were allowing those guys to train.

So, we should have done what the US has done countless times before, in countries across the globe: bomb the crap out of those bases and then go home. This was a textbook lesson in actions having ulterior motives. Much moreso than Iraq; most of us realized from the start that chemical weapons were purely a pretext, and George W Bush mainly wanted to settle the score with Saddam Hussein.

Book tour coming soon.
Another tell all, the pres is not what you think books.

Didn't some of you praise his being chosen?


BTW Bolton told trump he was going to resign last night.
So of course trump pretends he fired him this morning.

Would he facilitate some kind of situation where US troops were put in danger,even killed in order to change Trumps mind,

You know that I believe this whitehouse is Bedlam but even I do not think anyone there is that insane.
Come on.... give people some credit.

Agreed. Iraq and weapons of 'mash destruction' was a farce from the get go.
However, after bombing the crap out of Afghanistan, they did need boots on the ground for a hard target search. The intel did indicate OBL and company had been in there. Maybe he was, maybe he wasn't. But one could argue that assets on the ground were necessary at that point. Ironically, that effort was hindered when they pulled key SF assets and interpreters out of Afghanistan for the whole Iraq mess.

He would never be approved.
And he has to go to jail first.
I think sentencing is happening within days now.

Don't ask for links, it's big news very very soon.

So, thank you Don for dumping this guy. Smart move. Glad to see it.

Yours,,,

Terry.


Good. I don't like him even on the occasions I agree with him.

I'm reasonably sure he was brought in to play "bad cop" so Trump could simply gladhand. I don't think it worked quite as well as they expected. He's also an abrasive and opinionated ass, and there's probably only so much room for those in the Oval office, if you catch my meaning...

I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House. I disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions, as did others in the Administration, and therefore....

YOU'RE FIRED!!!

Bolton was there for almost a year and a half. Long enough to make some needed changes for specific reasons. New phase...new directorship. I love the way Trump is maneuvering this ship through the deep and dirty swamp full of obstructions and nasty creatures.

He is a shipmaster extraordinaire, imo.
