Wow, and you were only 15 when you got the MBA? Too bad you had Keynesians teaching you... What was it they taught you again? Treat your employees like people? Masterful!

Erdogan rejects being US puppet:

That makes the popular democratically-elected President of Turkey a loose cannon as far as the CIA is concerned, and it's no wonder why they tried to overthrow him.
Erdogan seems to be aligning with Putin and trying to turn Turkey into an authoritarian crony communist state. His work is cut out for him. I think the army and secret police are on his side, and I don't expect it to turn out well.

I'm wondering if kaz and SkyChief are fake accounts as well.

Haley is a shit firehose and they are clapping and dancing?

Hmm.


Notice that we addressed the point she made and you just personally attacked her.  Who's some stupid wench to disagree with the he-man merkelmisogynist?  You're a sock puppet of the left.  As for your issues with strong women leaving you limp, that's for you to figure out.

The point was should we be sending $$$ to countries who condemn us?  You can take your hatred of women and ram it where the sun don't shine.  You have anything on the point she made?  Or just on the audacity of a woman who would question your parroting Democrat talking points?

128 to 9 with 35 abstentions. The US was soundly defeated and of the 9, they were pretty well all either pacific atolls or micro-countries that supported the US out of fear.

The US now has lots of countries to refuse to save money on not supporting.

Good for pseudo-libertarians with no understanding of the implications of what has happened!

Trump threatened to cut aid to countries over UN Jerusalem vote.

Trump has threatened to withhold “billions” of dollars of US aid from countries which vote in favour of a United Nations resolution rejecting the US president’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

“Let them vote against us,”  Trump said.

“We’ll save a lot. We don’t care. But this isn’t like it used to be where they could vote against you and then you pay them hundreds of millions of dollars,” he said. “We’re not going to be taken advantage of any longer.”

Ouch.  That's a hard lesson.

Does that mean we have to move the US Embassy back to Tel Aviv?

No, it doesn't. And it doesn't mean the US will stop any aid that was ongoing to any of the 128 either. That was a failed threat by the US which was undoubtedly put forward by Trump.

What it does mean is embarrassment for the US and a caution that US power to persuade has slipped away. That is a plus for world peace which you used claim you supported.

You can't have it both ways anymore. If you even care, you will be judged on what you support or don't support when it comes to questions on US aggression.

I'm not interested in explaining that to you chief. In a sense you got your wish of there being lots of yes voting countries that the US could decide to withhold aid money from. The US could also try to retaliate against the 35 abstainers too.

None of which would be practical or serve US purposes. You don't understand that the UN is a place where the US can buy friends.

Haley's threat backfired and caused a sever loss of respect for the US. It would have only served a purpose if the vote had been more like the opposite, with only 9 to retaliate against.

Your issue now is to be on the side of those who wish to stop Trump from doing what he's doing to the US's reputation. There's no gain to be seen in retribution against any of the 128 of course.
