This is one of the most likely scenarios they practice on at military schools. It's interesting to see the many ways the US could be drawn in or not. Fortunately, we have a cool-headed, knowledgeable leader at the helm.

Why in the fark would America get drawn into a fight between two tiny nations, other than Azeri Oil (but taking some supply out of the market would be good for shale).

Trump might lob a tomahawk or two, but if you haven't noticed - he's not a warmonger by American Presidential standards.

Since Russia supports Armenia (the Christians), then I suppose Putin wouldn't mind if Trump did exactly that.

Nagono-Shi is a place in Japan.

But Nagumo was a military leader in Japan.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chūichi​_​Nagumo

Got it all sorted out thanks to Google, or rather, thanks to Duck Duck Go, Brantgoose's favourite waterfowl related search engine, although it isn't nearly as catholic as Google. It does have fairly good security, I guess.

Trump's not a warmonger only because the military has been pushing back. Why do you think he had gone through so many generals and admirals during his administration? It also helps that the few times Trump has attempted to flex his military muscle have ended up as disasters. Killing a 9 year old US citizen in his Yemen raid, his telegraphed air strikes in Syria, and his assassination strike in Iraq were all failures. Not to mention the dead Green Berets.

The military sure pushed back when America invaded Iraq or Vietnam.

Look I know everyone hates trump, but he's actually not a warmonger. Mostly because he's a coward, but I'll take it because look at how many dead Iraqis and Vietnamese were under presidents of BOTH parties. Including Saint Obama.

1) your question is not an honest one
2) yes I am sad at needless loss of life, especially civilian and those who do not wish to fight
3) one of my closest (ex) colleagues and still friends and in touch with is originally Armenian. One of the projects we had was with Turk consultants who had flown in. She quietly and professionally requested to be transferred from that project. Her grandmother had been raped by Turks and she couldn't get over that fact, even though she knew the people there had nothing to do with it. I more than willingly carried that project without her and in service of her request.

So spare me the words shoved into my mouth.

Oh, I'll agree with the coward part. But I think he's more scared of failing than anything else. The Yemen raid was his supposed to be his "killing bin Laden" moment. This was a mission that had been rejected by the Obama administration. If it had been successful, I'm sure Trump would have kept them going. But no one cares about 2nd string terrorists in a place none of his supporters had even heard of. Especially when little kids are killed. The same for his Syrian strikes.  They were supposed to be some grand statement, instead it was a waste of time and prestige.

If Trump got positive feedback for his military gambits, he'd be the most war mongering president there was. His is a failure of ability, not a failure of inclination.

This is why the US should shut down any and all immigration.

I had a friend who grew up in the Detroit suburbs in the 1970s/1980s. She had stories about Armenian-Americans driving into her Montenegran-American neighborhood and shooting out porch lights and windows.
