Turkish islamists stage a fake raid on a fake camp and almost shoot each other's heads off.
@Joycevor I totally agree with you. Have always loved Richard!
@ThomasWic Kind of reminds me of Iran in 1974. Hopefully all countries in the ME can transform this way!
United Arab Emirates.
One of our best allies.
Look how people are dressed.
@ThomasWic and of course all his Allies know the truth, or at least as much of the truth as he is willing to share with them. We really are blessed!
So in the end, Obama simply made everything worse.
The reason I admire Trump and the Saudis and Emiratis so much is that they deceive by HIDING their capabilities.
Obama tried to show of, and he experienced pratfall after pratfall.
Trump is PRETENDING to take pratfalls.
His enemies laugh, and then Trump wins.
I agree that art doesn't have to MEAN anything.
That itself is a meaning.
The imagery doesn't disturb me. Without dark, there can be no light.
The Trump years have separated the wheat from the chaff. Those who don't get Trump will be left behind.
I can't get over how DUMB Obama was when it came to the Syrian civil war. He was torn between his devotion to the Iranian mullahs and the influence of Samantha Power.
Trump's successes are based on using the frameworks of The Art of War and The Thirty-Six Stratagems.
Within those frameworks, Trump improvises like mad.
Last night I discovered an artist I didn't know.
American decline is due entirely to orthodoxy and rigidity of thought.
It infects everything: politics, law enforcement, the judiciary, industry, banking, farming, entertainment, education, individual growth...
People want simple formulas for success.
The reality is that FORMULAS ALWAYS FAIL UNLESS YOU LEAVE ROOM FOR DEVIATION.
Trump uses formulas that allow him to improvise.
Sun Tzu is actually just a FRAMEWORK.
Obama had TWO COMPETING programs for training rebels.
One was run by the Pentagon, and one was run by the CIA.
My guess is the hapless professional is an American CIA paramilitary, sent into battle without speaking the language of the locals.
From what I can tell, the US government has been incompetent since the end of World War II.
Nobody has done a study on how that conflict traumatized the human race.
This is a video from 2013, the year that Obama got involved in the Syrian Civil War.
He said that all we did we train and arm, but it APPEARS that there's a professional soldier there who doesn't speak Arabic.
These are totally untrained Syrian rebels.
@ThomasWic Today a bunch of high school acquaintances argued online whether the Dem debaters were bullies. I refrained from pointing out that piranhas are nicer. I am eagerly anticipating Trump's new world. Christmas on steroids for the average American.
Just a girl rocking in the free world
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
