    Not enough war for you now? Just wait until January, 2017.

    Unless she’s indicted Hillary Clinton will be the next president. We are in for more war, more terrorism, more civil liberties encroachments, a love-fest with Israel, and a fawning, sycophantic media that will tell us 24/7 how great this all is. It's going to be one hell of a ride.

    Trump would do the same, but actively order our soldiers to commit war crimes as well. Both candidates suck, but at least Clinton has a plan that doesn't involve ordering our troops to commit war crimes.

    aaron"noagenda"van is back with another amazingly insightful post.

    No agenda, no understanding of the facts.


    “We really have no choice, we have to knock out ISIS. I would listen to the generals, but I’m hearing numbers of 20,000-30,000.”
    - Donald Trump March 2016, speaking about Iraq and Syria


    Donald Trump would do the exact same thing, only he would also carpet bomb, steal oil from a sovereign people (commit war crimes) and 'give it to veterans and their families' (whatever that means).

    trump is opposed by his own party AND other freaking NATIONS. Clinton is more dangerous because it democrats DON'T care what she does as long as she tells them it was the right thing to do blah blah blah.

    Most of the Republican Party has already gone over to join Trump. And the US has been more than happy to go it alone so what other countries think won't matter. If it did we never would have gone into Iraq in the first place.

    Deflect, deny, distort: Hillarybots try to change every Hillary thread to a Trump thread because Hillary is indefensible. Of course, mention Hillary in one of their Trump threads, they immediate cry foul to the mods.

    Remember the mass protests when Bush bombed one country? Funny how things change with a Democrat is office.

    with A republican at the helm, Liberals will once again grow a back bone & become anti war-pro civil rights. we have gone at it alone with no opposition from other nations, you assume other nations would not oppose Trump,hell other nations mulled the idea of banning the man so they sure as hell will oppose his proposals.

    EXACTLY, war was 24/7 on the news, code pink & Cindy sheenan got all the coverage they wish, with Obama? pffffft, even passing indefinite detention w/o trial got him a pass from democrats.

    Oh, is that all he did?

    Back to reality: Bush invaded two countries with ground troops.

    Someone remind me why we are attacking Assad again. I literally don't know the reasoning behind Barry's dislike for Assad, when Syria was largely an ally to the USA under GWB.

    Because Assad--like Khaddfi--is an enemy of radical Islamism.

    reality, Obama has bombed more nations than Bush & has been at war longer. didn't even need congress to approve the bombings. all with Hillary's support.

    We could outsource our torture program under GWB to Syria and potentially have plausible deniability, due to it being a third-party activity. Similar in logic to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba - if it is not happening on U.S. soil, it's OK and it doesn't really matter what we do

    Obama pushed for regime change due mainly to the indiscriminate attacks by Assad on civilians. Google "barrel bomb" if you want to know more.

    But other countries opposing Trumps proposals will end up meaning one of two things. Nothing and Trump leads the US to go it alone, or those other countries oppose is militarily and start WWIII which would be an even bigger mess than small scale wars like we've been having.

    no it does not. no one wants to start WWIII, and congress happen to hold the purse strings.

    Obama fits the war monger definition, same as Hillary.
    it's a civil war that is NONE of our business.

    Donald Trump has never voted for war in his life. Not once.

    Sure if it's a "normal" civil war we shouldn't do anything. But you don't think someone should step in if there's war crimes being committed?

    The possibility of further involvement exists on both sides.

    That's because he's never been in a position to do anything. All he has is his rhetoric. Even if he says all this **** and doesn't do it, just shows he's a fake and a fraud. But perhaps better than actually being a war monger

    You are projecting because you are sympathetic to his campaign. You can't possibly know this.

    You can keep having the delusion that the Republicans won't back one of their own, but the fact is war has been one of the few bipartisan issues, and Republicans have been rallying around Trump now that he is the nominee so it seems more likely than not that they will support him.

    war crimes, like the U.S arming rebels & bombing sovereign nations? or are those "War crimes" ok?
    sounds like their problem.

    you keep having delusions that Trump will get away with whatever he spouts, I look forward to liberals growing their back bones once he is elected.
