  • From Peace Broker to Warmonger

    Trump brokers a peace deal in the mid-east. Biden does what warmongering neoliberals do best, barely TWO MONTHS in no less. And hardly a peep from the MSM, in fact, I had no idea this occurred until I stumbled across this video accidentally.

    This has been all over the MSM. In the last hour, I heard about it on NPR and then on CNN. It is on the front page of the NYT and WaPo. These all qualify as MSM.

    The strike was in response to a strike by Iran that injured American soldiers. Should Biden have let that go unanswered?

    As for the "peace" deal by Trump/Kushner, it was a business deal that left out one side entirely, the Palestinians.

      Sounds like breaking news then.

      Old Joe has been trying to scuttle the various peace deals between Israel and the various Muslim countries (U.A.E., Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco) negotiated by the Trump Administration by holding up promised arms shipments while crawling back to the mad mullahs in Iran, who know that they're dealing with weak Neville Chamberlain clones and are demanding concessions for the privilege.

      I'm always still in trouble again

        It will go "unanswered" in the long run as Biden wants to lift sanctions on and unfreeze the accounts of the very government funding the militias.

        The Palestinians don't want peace with Israel, they want Israel gone. A two-state solution is also impractically, especially given the terrorism coming from the the Palestinian side. Besides, Israel is a lighthouse of the West in the Middle East, I have no problem with Israel being the state in a one-state solution.

            Iran and Isis are enemies, and even the MSM was forced to amusingly admit this because of Trump and the Soleimani situation. So, since you're obviously an unprincipled little shill for Biden, you're all for Isis thriving as a result of their enemy (who was invited in the country by Assad as opposed to US troops there uninvited) getting attacked by the Biden admin, right?

              Of course irony and hypocrisy is never ever lost on this party.

              Also what is the legal authority for strikes? Assad is a brutal dictator. But Syria is a sovereign country
              -- Jen Psaki 2017

              I am deeply concerned about the legal rationale of last night’s strikes, The president needs to lay out a comprehensive strategy in Syria in consultation with Congress — and he needs to do it now
              -- Kamala Harris 2018

              Trump’s erratic, impulsive actions are the last thing we need as Commander-in-Chief. No president should order a military strike without fully understanding the consequences
              -- Joe Biden 2019

                I am still predicting a new war, or should I say "new conflict" somewhere within a year. Two years tops. It appears they want to go back into Syria, so Joe will probably make that ground zero.

                Beijing Biden is owned by the military complex, and they are itching for a fight somewhere and to make big contracts with aerospace and crank out the machinery.

                This is what the Dems want; dead American kids engaged is useless battles abroad. Good job!

                  And they were all threatening that if Trump won the (first) election, he'd start wars, and we needed to made he never had "the nuclear trigger".

                  When I go to Israel later this year, I can't wait to visit the US Embassy in Jerusalem!

                    I remember it being a bit of mixed views. I distinctly remember cnn actually praising Trump when he ordered Syrian strikes. That's the ONLY time I can recall cnn saying anything positive about Trump. It was really bizarre.

                      Do you genuinely care? That seems really strange.

                      Never when doing international travel have I for a moment considered visit my country's embassies as a tourist destination, nor ever in my life given any thought whatsoever to the location of those embassies.

                        Many tourist destinations are largely about symbolism. In many ways so is this. A symbol of a promise decades old finally being fulfilled.
