    There's bad and worse and I have no idea what good would be. So can you explain where I said something worked?

    It must suck to be other countries trying to wave rule violations by the United States during a useless committee meeting. It's the USA's shitty attitude that often escalates situations and leads to the world policing. Like I'm sure the response is sit down and shut the fuck up Bolivia.

    i didn't say you claimed that it worked. i just pointed out obama's policy didn't work. i think anyone reasonable would read your response and infer that you thought a path of deliberate, heads together, nonviolent diplomacy is superior to snap decision diplomacy

    Do you live in some weird millennial twitter world detached from actual reality? While the consensus may be that Trump is "ignorant", there is no question that he is a relatively smart person who has done well in life and will likely do some good things as President despite his probable many failures. Just as Obama was an unqualified buffoon for his position, there is no question that he is a relatively smart person who has done well in life and did some good things as President despite his many, many failures in the position.

    It is okay to admit once in a while that not all things in life and all people are accurately captured in force-fed partisan extremes consisting of 140 characters or less.

    Meh, that's life. Bolivia can go back to their safe space.

    what was the purpose of this post, then?

    Like I said. There's bad and there's worse. I'll take bad until anybody can come up with something that has a reasonable chance at being good.

    Trump, who for the first time yesterday became truly PRESIDENTIAL, stuck with his campaign promise to not give any warning or heads up before attacking, except to tell everyone, including Russia (which means Assad) and, apparently, New Zealand about the probably illegal attack, to make sure everyone moved the expensive shit out of the way in case we hit it, which we wouldn't have anyway because apparently we didn't hit anything of value with $100M in US missiles used purely as a political distraction. He found his footing yesterday, friends. Fucking rubes.
