  1. That was done out of respect to the russian who have advisers on those bases we bombed. The second time we launched our missiles they were only informed that we would not target them. We used the deconflicting line to make sure there are no russians in areas we intend to use.
  2. You mean to tell me a military action that would potentially set off world war 3 has no input from trump? The fact that saber rattling unsettles you because you are not aware of the nature of diplomatic negotiation tells me you are not well verse enough on this topic to have meaningful input.
  3. Jeesus christ people can we stop with the nazi fascist comparassion. Trump is not hitler, america isn't the weimar republic of the 1920s and 30s. All of these attacks only distracts from the real issue.
  4. Good is a relative term. What is good for one group might not be for other. As a leader the road to popularity is a road to failure. You have to take a position and go with your guts. Win people's affection by your steadfastness to your values.
  5. I would say trump is re establishing our credibility in the world stage. Take russia and syria for instance. We said no more chemical weapons and we mean it. And if you try to send a mercenary force to attack us you will be obliterated. The meek obama days are over. We will back our diplomats with force if necessary. So take the carrot not the stick. We are re asserting our selves in the world stage. As for the domestic theater feel free to call us out on it. If we don't like it we will replace him with someone else to our liking next term.
  6. That is a valid opinion but i might add that rap music is borne out of poverty and socio economic disparity that forces these artist to sing about their rise from poverty. You can see why this has a mass appeal. We love Drake and the weeknd so thank you canadians. The best gift ever!
  7. No worries on my many trips to BC I love talking to those people. I think of Canadians pretty much as Americans because in America you have every right to criticize what you disagree with. But the reality is this, we are joined at the hip so criticize away. You're not saying what we haven't already heard amongst ourselves. We american find you canadians and your antics amusing. Do you know how many canadian jokes we have about you!!!??
  8. You do realize what trump says and does are two totally separate things right? He does not represent every American nor does he have complete power to do as he sees fit. We have great people working in the state department and many other agency with plenty of credibility. It's called checks and balances. They were simply hampered by Obama's risk adverse tendency and allowed the world to loose faith in American credibility. Trump is simply re-establishing those credibility. Now what ever he said was probably said with mis-information about the matter to pander to political views some of his con
  9. Well feel free to abandon ship and move to which ever country you think don't have any of those issue and fit more closely with your priorities. Good luck. You will find that whilst america is not without problem, having lived in a third world country personally I would say these issue are not even worth breaking a sweat over. They will get resolve in time as we are constantly trying to make "America great Again" . But back to the new world order and trade deals... Here's a good quote by the Chicago Tribune, an ardent anti trump media outlet... "Trump was announcing to the world that if
  10. LOL calm down , we are establishing or more corectly re-establishing the new world order. Canada has never been an enemy, more like a little brother full of idealism and dreams because big brother scares away all the other potential bully in the yard. Big bro just need you to hurry up and sign the new deal that will help both of us work better with one another.
  11. Unfortunately that is the president we elected so you will have to be careful about wetting any future internet panties. In all seriousness though I think Trump is simply using that as an excuse to play his admittedly heavy handed tactic, even if it was done for expediency. Look the sooner we renegotiate NAFTA and EU-NA trades the better so we can all put this feather ruffling chapter behind us. It is being done for the greater good.
  12. That would be ideal but currently I do not have enough data to fully support a regime change in North Korea. A power vacuum would be filled by either a new authoritarian regime or democratic one and could potentially lead to the second Korean war or world war 3. If any deals are to be had it will ultimately involve china and russia. It is not in their national interest to allow a Unified democratic Korea.
  13. I would disagree, out of the 230 plus years this experiment we call America has existed we are still the most revolutionary force that exist. We have the strength and moral high ground to engage with all countries in the world regardless of our differences. We seek to work past differences and do not see security and prosperity as a total sum game. We believe that a strong and prosperous china, russia or any current adversary is of great benefit to the rest of the world. But this is with respect to law and order, fundamental principles of human rights, and many of our founding principles; a co
  14. Oh? how so? That's a radical thought. You mean like turn North Korea into South Korea? I think that was the plan all along by both sides. The only real opposition to this has been China and Russia. They do not want a western democracy on close to their borders. This has been the reason why North Korea has been allowed to exist. Without China's support hey would have bellied up long ago.
  15. Jeesus you sound like the Alex Jones folks we have down south. Calm down, all trump want is a truly free trade agreement with no tariffs or subsidies from either party. The EU need to start playing ball, I mean look at the huge trade deficit they have. Weren't for us they'd be speaking Russian and have a lower quality of life. It's only fair they start paying for their own defense and remove their tariffs against american import which is the true reason for this "trade war", a term coined by anti trump leftist. Don't believe in the hype, all of this is part of a renegotiation tactic trump like
  16. Lol calm down, Canada is not America's national security threat. this is just trade tactics used to negotiate. No need to throw a temper tantrum. America and Canada has always been and will be brothers, we are part of the same family, there are disagreement but don't worry big brother is always looking out for you canucks. So take your medicine and sign the new true free trade agreements with trump. no beating around the bush this time with tariffs and subsidies.
  17. Dear Canada, you guys are already 90 percent American and you don't even know it. You would just get your new driver license in the mail and throw a hissing fit then promptly apologize out of habit. To be honest I already considered Canada as part of America though not formally. Not to stroke your ego but you guys represent the best part of america, your openness and acceptance of others, your politeness and hard work, your respect and friendliness with others. Remembers we have more alike than differences so no need to finger point at who is better. America is a vast country with different po
  18. SO much misinformation here..., look as far as North Korea is concern, they got what they want out of the meeting with the president. We got our citizen back and some gesture at destroying their nuclear tunnels. It takes time to work out the details. Call it a propaganda victory for them but wait a minute this propaganda victory only serves their local audiences, no body in the world really take North Korea seriously either way so no big loss on our part. Remember the real prize for the north koreans is that we pull out our troops from the peninsula, they didn't get it. Did trump hint at it su
  19. Hello Canucks, greetings from your southern neighbor in Texas! Full disclosure I'm a Trump supporter. I would not worry too much about it canadian friends, trump is simply bargaining for "true free trade" across Nato countries. This means no tariffs or subsidies from either parties. Unfortunately, trump felt he needed to play his strong hand to rush these negotiation along. Fact of the matter is this, the trade deficit has allowed trump to use it as a bargaining chip. Not saying that there is a large deficit between US and Canada, just pointing to the fact that a trade deficit exist. Tarrifs h
