Syria, Libya, Ukraine,

Yemen is another endless war started by America's Nobel Peace Prize winner.

Article: "Will Biden End The Yemen War That He & Obama Started?"


Trump had 4 years to end it. Guess he forgot.


Nope, was just too busy ending Obama's other wars as well as getting muslim countries to recognize Israel.


Yeah, he might have to cut back on the golf.


Caring about how much golf Trump plays is just silly. He was able to get the vaccines produced. Middle East treaties. Business regulations eased. Supreme Court nominees confirmed. All despite playing a lot of golf. Whatever you wanted him to do differently I can assure you it had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with how much golf he played.


Well, if you're saying he wasn't too busy, that's my argument either way. Presidents have a couple people working for them as well usually.

You mean the Saudi run war on Yemen?
We mostly sold them equipment and weapons, which Trump promptly stopped.

Oh wait....

Yemen is another country that had the bad misfortune to be sitting on resources we want. It really isn't personal, but the US [west] is going to control the Bab el Mandeb strait...or else. That is the choke point between Yemen and Djibouti where 18% of the worlds oil flows daily. The shipping channel there narrows to just 12 miles wide. Somebody besides Yemen is going to control it, either the UAE, Israel, the US or China., sorry boys, but we are taking this. https://www.dailysabah.com/opinion/op-ed/uae-israel-intelligence-base-on-yemeni-islandof-socotra


This video has a lot of information about the location and importance of the Bab el Mandeb strait. http://middleeastobserver.net/expert-explains-yemens-global-strategic-value-why-us-saudis-want-it/

Saudi has wanted for years to build an oil pipeline through Yemen to the Indian ocean, so ships don't have to risk going through the Persian gulf [strait of Hormuz].

On this issue, the beautiful thing about Trump is Twitter. He has been on Twitter since 2009, so you can see all of his posts about Obama Golfing and playing other Sports.

https://www.sbnation.com/golf/2017/3/27/15073086/donald-trump-tweets-barack-obama-golf

Trump pretty much made a full time hobby to blast Twitter whenever Obama played golf or other sports. And, all of Trump's supporters here probably praised him for doing so. But, when the tables are reversed think its silly to even bring it up....

Here are some of my favorites:

In any case sometimes its just fun showing the hypocrisy of the right, they'll just double down as they always do.

That's always been the agreement, SA has to sell oil in $$ and re-invest it in the US. We have control of SA's money through the IMF. Rumor is, SA is way behind in their payments on tens of billions worth of weapons?

The US is the largest seller of arms in the world, and we need it to stay that way. You know, we all know, if we don't sell them arms, other country's will immediately. The "global arms race" is really more about, who can sell the most arms. And for now, those country's are lobbing bombs back and forth between themselves [with our help] and they are still accepting the dollar for their oil. That was really really a brilliant plan when you think about it.


Looks like SA's ARAMCO is already in trouble, have to issue bonds to pay the dividend. https://oilprice.com/Energy/Energy-General/Saudi-Aramcos-Landmark-IPO-Is-Costing-The-Kingdom-Billions.html

It would take DECADES of Trump donating the 400k salary every year to pay the taxpayers back for golf trips. It's not silly. It's our money.

It's true I wanted Trump to do a lot differently. This was, of course, one of them. Practicing fiscal responsibility after his party whined about the deficit for 8 years and CONSTANTLY complaining about Obama playing golf...down the street.

Here's a simple ask: don't be such a blatant hypocrite.

Iím not arguing whether or not Trump is a hypocrite. Of course he is.

What Iím arguing about is people implying because he golfed a lot that he couldnít get the work of President done.

My story..... In D.C. on my annual lobbying trip. Was going to walk a few blocks to a restaurant around dinner time. Cops have all the traffic stopped. No one can cross the street. I ask one what is going on.... told Obama and the Mrs. are going out to dinner. First a bunch of motorcycles go by. Then some cars. Then presumably the SUV with the Prez. Then some more large vehicles. Then an ambulance. Then more motorcycles. When I asked Mr Friendly cop if I guessed which vehicle Obama was in, he said there were THREE such caravans, two with obviously not the President. For a few mile ride you canít convince me it was less than $1,000,000 in local cops, secret service, federal agents, etc.... not even including the thousands of pedestrians and motorists delayed for 15-20 minutes

But once we anoint a Prez, there essentially is no cost we wonít bear to keep him safe. Again.... so many things to take Trump to task for.... forget golf....

I just jumped to the end where he says he does not know what's going to happen and all I see on the board is "5) probably "
Much ado about nothing
"Probably" don't mean jack.
