I mean, that's how I felt when we lost to the Bulls in the Finals in 1993. But dude is the GOAT and Trump is just jealous.

Oh, you mean the country.

This is Israel yanking Trump's chain again.  They keep naming things after him, and every time they do, Trump does something really stupid for them.

Dear Mr. President:

The US has too many allies. Please eliminate three.

Signed,

P.S. I am not a crank.

We should be pulling Jordan much, much closer.
 
2020-06-16 2:40:31 PM  
Of course its Trump sucking up to another dictator, Bibi.

Hopefully Israel mans the fark up for once and send Bibi to life in prison with his wife and then tell Trump to get farked.

Ask the people of Utah as to whether we're pushing Jordan or if Jordan is pushing us off.

Did you all miss the bit where Israel set her free under a prisoner exchange years ago?  If the tangerine menace has an issue, it's with his corrupt cock-sucking mate in the Knesset.

Crossing Jordan wasn't even a good TV show, let alone foreign policy.

If you push him away, he'll drop 60 on you just out of spite.

Jordan is the closest thing Israel has to an ally in the region.  I mean, I wouldn't call them actual allies, but Jordan is the most likely to at least consider not shanking Israel in a back ally for the raw funsies.  Israel has no reason to piss off Jordan unnecessarily.

She has lived freely in Jordan since Israel released her in a 2011 prisoner swap with the militant group Hamas.

The biggest reasons terrorists bother taking American POWs is for prisoner swaps. If allies are going to renege, they're just going to kill us. Not that Trump is going to start caring about soldiers now.

All the more reason for Netanyahu to have Trump do it for him.

Good. I was saying US out of everywhere under Bush and I'm not going to complain too much just because Trump is doing it in the most idiotic way possible.

The hell is wrong with you?  If you said "You people need to leave that guy alone" and they did so after they doused him in gasoline and shoved a road flare down his pants, that is not grounds for a 50-day celebration.  If the US needs to get out of somewhere, they need to do it in a way that causes the absolute least damage to that withdrawal.  History is littered with the hellholes created when an occupying force just legged it with no concern for what they were leaving behind.  If you break it, you at least need to leave the money to fix it, preferably having called a repairman and told him to send you the bill.  But "run like a coont" is not kosher.

Dicking around with Jordan is exactly what we should not be doing if we want to continue with globalist policies.

They were pivotal in the fight against ISIL, they are a key western leaning country within the middle east, and don't have the questionable history of the house of Saud.   I spent time there in the midst of the fighting, so maybe it's a bit personal, and maybe I'm biased.

This should be one of the last bastions we play games with unless we are just pulling out.

But we let the Saudis slide again and again.
 
2020-06-16 4:29:56 PM  
Interesting in that she was in prison for years in Israel and the US never asked for extradition. Possible because they never thought she would never get out. Then she is released to Jordan in a prisoner exchange but before the exchange the US did not request extradition.  Begs the question why now?

He is probably the smartest and most talented leader in the Middle East. And yes, he is a badass, but in a mostly good way.

Yes it is. "They" aren't likely to bake the guy a cake and bandage him up after beating him, leaving is the best you can hope for if you're grounded in reality.

Yeah, no possible unforeseen consequences, right?
