I sure called this one.  (24 for 25 predictions) 

Trump goes on the offensive in Syria.

A "daring and dangerous" was ordered to take out ISIS Leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Trump said he watched much of the raid from the White House Situation Room, alongside the secretary of defense and other top military and national security officials.

Special Ops forces in 8 helicopters flew for more than an hour from an undisclosed location to reach the compound in northwestern Syria.

They breached the walls and were met with gunfire, killing a "large number" of enemy fighters in the ensuing gun battle, which lasted more than two hours.

Trump said of al-Baghdadi :  "He died like a dog. He died like a coward. The world is now a much safer place. God bless America."

2 service members suffered minor injuries but are already back on duty. Trump said the troops involved "accomplished their mission in grand style".

This is comic book shit, right?

Edit: Shouldn't there be graphics of SuperTrump flying in to save the day?

Hitler declared war against the US.  US had no option but to choose allies and fight.

Right.

Churchill was actually relieved to hear that Hitler had declared war against the US.   He knew that Britain would eventually be defeated by the Wehrmacht without US involvement.


But it was Churchill who declared War on Germany.  We should have stayed out of that war too.  We are a warmonger country.  Do you respect FDR or something?

Hey Chief, what do you think about this:

Why?

Even as Prime Minister, Churchill did not have some arbitrary individual power to declare war.

From your link:

"In September 1939 Germany invaded Poland. The attack touched off the world struggle that Churchill would later call “The Unnecessary War” because he felt a firm policy toward aggressor nations after World War I would have prevented the conflict. Chamberlain brought Churchill into government again as First Lord of the Admiralty. Churchill became Prime Minister on May 10, 1940, the day Hitler launched his invasion of France, Belgium, and Holland. During the tense months that followed, Britain stood alone with her Empire and Commonwealth, surviving the Battle of Britain and the Blitz. Churchill's speeches and broadcasts carried a message of determination and defiance around the globe."

A rational person would say the the German National Socialists, after making a pact with the World Socialists in the Soviet Union, started WWII by invading Poland, and ensured it would be a world war by continuing it's attack into France, Belgium, and Holland.
