For a whole year now our leaders have been talking trash…..by trash I mean lies on top of lies…..these twats cannot help themselves they just cannot stop once they started lying and when confronted with their lies they claim “fake news”……
Some of their biggest trash talking is on the field of international relations…..first it was the VP when talking about Afghanistan……
Having made a surprise visit to Afghanistan on Thursday to meet with Afghan leaders and US troops, Vice President Mike Pence is talking up “progress” in the 16+ year Afghan War, crediting the new strategy.
Back in August, President Trump set out a “new” strategy, which was just a general escalation of the conflict, with an unspecified number of additional ground troops deployed, and a substantial increase in US airstrikes.
Pence said the situation is “promising” now, saying that the Taliban have been put “on the defensive,” though of course the Taliban have been in defensive situations several times during the protracted war.
US officials have many times during the course of the war claimed progress against the Taliban, but the Trump Administration’s ever-increasing secrecy about the strategy, troop levels, and day-to-day operations, it is very difficult to gauge by what measure they think things are improving at all, with Taliban territorial holdings still near their highest level since the 2001 invasion.
Great progress? The opium crop is biggest ever….ISIS is making in-roads in the north of the country…..Taleban is in control of numerous provinces in the South…yeah “great progress”
Then there is Fearless Fosdick of a president……
One day after a massive Thursday loss at the UN General Assembly on the Jerusalem issue, President Trump complained on Twitter that the US “foolishly spent $7 trillion in the Middle East,” suggesting the focus needed to shift to US infrastructure.
This comment was perceived by some reporters as being about Trump’s threat to withdraw foreign aid from countries that voted against him at the UN, as well as lamenting how little influence the US had actually bought.
Of course, the $7 trillion is mostly not foreign aid, but military spending, and as President Trump is always eager to remind people, he is particularly supportive of massive military increases, and has continued and escalated overseas operations, largely in the Middle East, since taking office.
Really? And yet he has expanded the scope of the US involvement in the region….
I agree with him that the US foolishly wasted these funds in a war that cannot be won….but he was just spouting trash and does not mean a word of what he has said……
These people are doing what they do best….fill the people with propaganda and then blame everyone else when it all goes wrong.
These guys are NO longer amusing….now they are just pathetic liars.
