More chaos from Trump's governing by tweeting. What a shocker.

1 ( +2 / -1 )

Obama said in his campaign that Middle East problems should be solved by the Middle East's people, not by the US or the West. By the time Obama left office, the US was engaged militarily in more countries than ever in its history, mainly in the Mideast.

So this is good. Trump is finally starting to fulfill Obama's original promise.

If you tell Trump that, he'll promptly do a 180.

Just a few days ago, John Bolton said we weren't leaving Syria until ISIS is completely defeated. 

Confusing, isn't it. Sort of like our entire foreign policy.

The one good thing about this withdrawal is, unlike Obama who did a full pullout Trump will leave a “small residual” force of a few thousand and if the need arises have the capability to send more troops if it’s necessary.

Well that’s only the fourth conflicting opinion you’ve give on this matter over the past years.

I guess we just have to wait for Trump to do something random on the matter again in order to see your fifth.

Not conflicting, Obama did a full withdrawal of Iraq, a stupid decision, didn’t even establish a SOFA at least with this withdrawal, it’s more calculated and we will have troops also in Iraq and Afghanistan to help contain Iran instead of a complete and full withdrawal, so this might be a good thing actually.

Not conflicting

Hahahahahahahahahahahahhaa.

Oh sorry, did you want me to respond to what you want me to think you did, or to what you actually did?

Well actually your post makes it clear it’s the former.

No, I’m just saying what Obama didn’t do and the ramifications we had to suffer because of it and greatly, but at least with Trump’s decision there will be some residual forces left behind, so that is definitely a plus.

Heh you say that again like it doesn’t directly conflict with four other stances you’ve taken on such matters.

So, leaving out forces behind but not supplies. And bass is in favor. Of troops starving in foreign lands. Cool, cool.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

so this might be a good thing actually.

Of course it might. Trump is doing it.

Bass, what are your beliefs regarding foreign policy these days? They seem to change based on whatever Trump does.
