Holy Shyte!!!


Donald J. BatShyte-Crazy, today:


VOX:

Ahead of a Monday meeting with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, Trump told reporters at the White House that he could win the war in Afghanistan in just one week if he really, really wanted to. But Trump says he won’t do that because he doesn’t want millions to die. 

 “I don’t want to kill 10 million people,” he said. “I have plans on Afghanistan that if I wanted to win that war, Afghanistan would be wiped off the face of the earth, it would be gone, it would be over in literally 10 days.” 

 Yes, you read that right: The US president is saying that he has some secret plan to “win” the war against the Taliban — a war that has lasted nearly 20 years — in just over a week. 

 Even stranger, Trump said this right as the US and the Taliban are in the middle of months-long peace talks to end the war and bring roughly 14,000 US troops home.


Those are the musings of an insane psychopath.

Afghanistan- as I recall, they have a history of invasions. Alexander the Great conquered the place, but spent two years fighting the rebellious Afghans. Same with
the Muslim invasions 900 years later. The British lost many men over the course of
three Anglo-Afghan wars and finally left with their tattered Union Jack. The invasion by the Soviet Union contributed to the breakup of that country and left the
Afghans still fighting among themselves. Its almost like its the hobby of that country to pick on the bigger kids, especially when they come. But of course the
acting president (the whole administration is filled with 'acting' execs) is so
incredibly and yuuugely smart, he would have solved the problem in a day...except
it was Obama's fault and Jared was off in Riyadh seeking funds to put the Great One's face on Mt. Rushmore.

BB-Idaho, Yes. And trump could have solved centuries of failures by other imperialist countries to get the Afghans to submit to our will by dropping a nuke that would kill 10 million Afghans. But he just didn't feel like doing that right now.

We don't have to imagine what a clueless maniac on foreign policy would sound like, since trump is now on record as an example. Listening to what he said -- it was almost like listening to a person who is a breathtakingly ignorant and dangerous nincompoop.

He's a big hit in the region. This from Huffpost:
“I was with Prime Minister Modi two weeks ago,” Trump recalled. “He actually said, ‘Would you like to be a mediator or arbitrator?’ I said, “Where?′ He said, ‘Kashmir.’ Because this has been going on for many, many years. I was surprised at how long it’s been going on,” Trump added, revealing his lack of knowledge about the history of the conflict.

Trump added: “I’d love to be a mediator.”

Even before India denied Trump’s claim, the White House refused to confirm that the Kashmir conversation between Modi and Trump had occurred, The Wall Street Journal reported.

The man is clearly dangerously delusional.

Ducky: "The man is clearly dangerously delusional."

Yes. But the Mother Ship and other usual right wing blogs buy into and love his delusions. And they think the Democrats are destroying America. Whew! That's some real crazy.

tRump is so magnanimous to decline to kill millions and become history's greatest war criminal. Hopefully the military commanders would refuse to follow such orders.

Dervish, whaat Trump said about nuking Afghanistan is the ravings of a maniac.
