The problem with Trump is of course that as a businessman he is a bit of a gambler. People here as armchair generals know how critical it is to take risks but the general public does not. He will not be detoured by losing a battle here and there but the never Trump people are cowards. Time to get rid of the neo cons for good. If you only fight the battles you know you can win you will eventually lose the war.
Historians love Stalin and Hitler too. Trump as an example and where America started to give up it's world leadership to China.

Then Italians have put Libya back in it's place, just like they did in Roman times,

Libya is all in all an irrelevant consideration, hasn't been since 146 BC.

The Med is just a bath tub after all, Mare Nostrum

Trump himself commented on the futility of it all, only months ago.

http://edition.cnn.com/2017/10/01/po...rea/index.html

And now suddenly this talk about an entirely insignificant aspect, (sending a artistic skating team, and six cheerleaders to the winter Olympics, of all things) is supposed to be a game changing event ?

At least it is being sold as such by both Trump and Kim, that alone should tell you something.

Surely I'm not the only one to think this is a dog and pony show ?
The only thing that has happened is that the President of S. Korea thanked Trump for making these new talks happen.
Who built it up to be anything more than that?

Once in a while, you might want to think about holding the media responsible for what they say about Trump ... instead of always holding Trump responsible for everything everyone in the Media says about him.

Try it, someday.

Are you seriously comparing Trump to Stalin and Hitler? How many people has Trump had hauled out and shot, gassed, or tortured?
I realize that TDS is strong in you but don’t be stupid.

And LM suggested Trump 'deserved thanks' for the F-35 declining unit cost.

Because, when faced with idiocy, you stroke its feathers and tell it how well it did.

Smile / murder / smile. Lost on Trumpity.

With a president who relies on Twitter that argument doesn't really fly does it,

here is Trump in his own words, on Twitter, taking credit for the current talks between North and South Korea.

If only he did allow professional journalists to twist his words, he would appear as less of an idiot

Quote:
“With all of the failed “experts” weighing in, does anybody really believe that talks and dialogue would be going on between North and South Korea right now if I wasn’t firm, strong and willing to commit our total “might” against the North. Fools, but talks are a good thing!”
Yeah Donald, sure ...
