  1. Obviously Canada doesn't care, as Trudeau brought home strike fighters and support aircraft long ago. And stopped military support for Kurds after promising same. So please explain to me why Trump has to stay in Syria, but Canada and many other "allied" nations do not.
  2. One senior Democrat just up and died after waiting so long for Trump to be impeached : This is the same Democrat who sparred with Trump over Baltimore's crime troubles.
  3. The EU has been held hostage by Erdogan's threat of 3.6 million refugees being unleashed on Europe. The Americans have no such interest in Syria, and has even cooperated with Russia against ISIL and chemical weapons stocks...before Trump: The strange thing is that the EU has the most to lose from an unstable Syria and rogue Turkey, but it has taken a back seat to the Americans and Russians.
  4. The EU is waking up to the reality of America no longer covering their asses in Syria with ground troops and air power. Time for the EU to get some skin in the game....instead of just bitching about Trump.
  5. Indeed...why not ? Senator Warren wants to do just that...bye bye Carter Doctrine.
  6. No authorization from Congress for troops in Syria.....why not ?
  7. What's wrong with Russia ? Russia has far more resources already in Syria than some other....ummmm...NATO deadbeats.
  8. In other words, you have no answer for the other "allies", but have all the answers for the United States. Volunteer your own nation's blood and treasure before demanding ours.
  9. Montreal Expos going to World Series...as the Washington Nationals.

  10. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will not hold a vote on the impeachment inquiry, as she does not have all the votes needed, and it would put a lot of pressure on vulnerable Democrats. Try harder Nancy !
  11. I'm sure it has happened before...depends on the case. We don't know the details here. The U.S. border tightened up after 9/11, long before Trump.
  12. Illegals crossing into Canada from the U.S. border would also be arrested and detained.
  13. Not realistic...Turkey has Kurdish rebels and an unstable Syria on its border. Turkey is still a NATO ally, and Syria has long been a Soviet/Russian client state. Turkey shot down a Russian Sukhoi Su-24M in 2015. If everybody and their mother has been in Syria to arm rebels and fight, why can't Turkey ?
  14. OK, but Canada abandoned the Kurds two years ago. Where were/are the other "allies" ? Why does the burden fall on Trump / United States when others are not there ?
  15. Are you disappointed to realize that so much of your ideology and dogma was imported directly from the United States ?
  16. Keep digging your hole deeper...even in "EVIL America", the U.S. lefties and progressives have set a pace that you can only watch and follow.
  17. Italy to congratulate Canada on forming a coalition government.

  18. Ever heard of Gay Pride Parades ? How about Black Lives Matter ? Or maybe the Rainbow Flag ? Where do you think those came from....the Yukon ?
  19. Easy...see "Leap Manifesto" and Stanford University.
  20. Obviously they are for power projection to achieve policy goals, with or without allied forces. The result may or may not prevent slaughter or civilian casualities, and may in fact cause some ("collateral damage"). Even UN peacekeepers do not always protect people from slaughter.
  21. Trump is responsible for U.S. troop's lives far more than the lives of Syrians, Kurds, and Turks hell bent on war. Get all U.S. troops out of Syria...now.
  22. There is no side here....nobody is going in. There is no compelling interest to do so, other than humanitarian aid. Obama armed "free Syrians" to take out Assad, not to protect Kurds.
  23. So which other nations were willing to stop the "genocide" in Rwanda with military power ? None. Chretien went begging to Clinton because Canada didn't have 50 APCs available or the heavy lift transport to get them to Rwanda. Instead, Gen. Dallaire had bad dreams and wrote a book instead. In Kosovo (1999), NATO would only commit to an air campaign to force Milosevic back to peace talks, not stop "genocide" with boots on the ground. Trump made the right move here, despite the heat he is taking.
