    Naturally. You've defended worse from Trump rougue. I've even started threads saying - effectively - surely people can't support THIS - and sure enough, a good many of you do. Many time you and others have chastised me severely for pointing our what he is doing is immoral, after all, you didn't elect a saint. So I can't even count on the immorality of his actions as any indication you would be likely to reject them. So yes, if you don't explicitly say you are against what he is doing, I assume you are with what he is doing.

    And just like you and juv did here with me you took the worst possible interpretation, presented it as the only possible interpretation and demanded that everyone acquiesce to it, and condemning those that didn't.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    As I have stated strongly before, and just to reiterate, if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (I’ve done before!). They must, with Europe and others, watch over the captured ISIS fighters and families. The U.S. has done far more than anyone could have ever expected, including the capture of 100% of the ISIS Caliphate. It is time now for others in the region, some of great wealth, to protect their own territory. THE USA IS GREAT!


    Well, that's all right then.

    But... isn't the ISIS Caliph still uncaptured?

    Did someone say you thought it was a good idea?

    I'm merely pointing out that pulling the military out of various Middle Eastern conflicts was a campaign promise of Trump's.
    That's a stronger defense of his decision than we've seen from the Republican party leaders in either chamber, which puts you, as I said, off the scale on the partisan fringe.

    I don't think so. I thought you were supporting trump with your reply -no more, no less. That is all that could be understood from your reply w/o further explanation from you. -- actually -- my comment was that trump was acting out of self interest. You proposed and alternative explanation to protecting Trump towers Turkey, but I pointed out your objection was also self interest.

    So there wasn't a whole heck of a lot of assuming about you at all in my comments.

    However, In my response to your objection to be considered 'with' Trump, I noted that there was nothing in your reply that could have been interpreted otherwise. And I made clear that unless you note otherwise, I will assume you are if that is what you post implies for the reasons stated.

    But in this section of text, I've only pointed out that your alternative reason is still an issue of self-interest for Trump.

    Not that I'd ever object to unwitting irony, I wasn't even referencing him in 22.

    Has the middle east ever not had conflict?
    If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

    For now, we've got an unhinged caliph, and an uncaptured president, or maybe the other way around.

    Time will tell.

    I'm cool with folks noticing other places have had lots of wars, but ya know, I'm trying to think of the last time that could be said of the U.S., and coming up blank, which makes me wonder about the relevance.
