Trump: Get Ready Russia.

Trump tweets: Quote:
Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia,  because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!” You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!


We might get through this if the US sends missiles and Russia sticks to shooting them down.

Maybe some small comfort for Americans would be in the possibility of an attack on Syria, it would be assumed that Israel would be taking part.

Israel has already been responsible for attacks on Syria so that would be quite logical. And then there would be a distinct possibility of Israel being the chosen target of Syria and Iran. It would appear that antiwar Americans would get some satisfaction out of that happening. It certainly would be dealing with the problem directly. And there's probably little doubt that Hamas would take the opportunity.

But it wouldn't bode well for world peace when Israel struck back with all it's potential. Nuclear potential.

Just speculation on how Russia and now China too could take a position.

Trump has really painted himself into a corner on this one.

If he follows through with the missile attack he promised, he will be impeached for telegraphing to the world a Top Secret Military srtategy which should only be made available to the Defense Dept. Staff.

If he doesn't follow through with the missile attack he promised, al-Assad will be the default victor. Trump will become a laughing stock of the international community.

Trump shoulda just kept his fat pie-hole shut.  He's just not cut out for the job of Commander-In-Chief.

My guess is that you are technically correct, but who would take him to task.

Who would support taking him to task?

There's a tendency to make all this an issue between Mueller and Trump but it's not that at all.

Thanks. I got a good laugh out of that Chief.

For what exactly?

"We will bomb the shit out of you" is neither strategy nor tactics.

Anything politicians do on an international stage is called diplomacy, which means they usually lie to everybody, or sometimes tell the truth just to throw people off.

What are the charges for a bill of impeachment?

He lied to Russia? Or he lied to the world about Russia? Or what?

Trump never said "We will bomb the shit out of you". That's only how you interpreted it.

Here's what he actually said:

“Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and ‘smart!’ ”

He just told the entire world he intends to use latest technology guided missiles.

Publicly announcing Military strategic operations to the enemy.  He told everyone the type of weapons to be used. 

Congress should begin impeachment proceedings immediately.  Trump is a loose cannon. We need an immediate replacement before Trump can reveal other strategic plans to the enemy.

Hopefully, Congress will deny authorization for missile strikes in Syria. But I doubt it.  Most of them want war too.

I think you're quite wrong to place any stock in what Trump said. I would question that he even understood what he was saying. "Nice and new and smart' is likely no more than his rhetoric of ignorance. We shall see though.

Aren't we all past the point of caring what the hell happens to Trump?
