  • Trump wanted to invade...Venezuela?

    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/w...rce=reddit.com

    Probably because he gets his news from Brietbart.

    But seriously, if that's even possible anymore, would it have been a good idea or not and why?

    Unless Venezuela is a direct and serious threat to America, I see no reason for an American invasion.

    Also, Trump was elected not to be a Dubya 2.0. Venezuela while being a socialist hellhole hasn’t fired missile up north and hasn’t either been responsible of a major terrorist attack on American soil.

    Regarding drugs, if Murica can’t win this war on its soil why go international?

        In a meeting last August to discuss sanctions on Venezuela in the Oval Office, Mr Trump asked why he could not just invade the country.
        What the—?

          You will note that for a man with supposedly poor impulse control there is still no invasion nor even a ramp up of rhetoric about one.

            Something more important likely distracted him on Twitter. Probably Schwarzenegger or Meryl Streep.

                Well, ain't that a relief. We don't know how hard his advisors had to twist his arms in order to talk him out of it.

                  More or less. But we'll see when his scandals blow up whether he tries to deflect with some foreign military adventure. Personally I think he won't even then: he fights his battles on Twitter, but we'll see.

                    I wouldn't put it past Trump to invade some country the leader of which insulted him on Twitter.

                      That would be pretty much everyone thus far.

                      Meanwhile I'll note that apart from the two retard wars that Obama left him to inherit (Ukraine and Syria) he's thus far done a better job than Obama in not sticking America's dick into pointless overseas wars. Better than GWB and Bill Clinton too for that matter.

                        Depends it sounds as thought the idea was to topple the incompetent socialist government and fix the humanitarian disaster venezuela is in due to Chavez and the Bus driver, Maduro

                        When only Regime lackeys get fed properly the time will come for an uprising and the regime will murder the innocent

                        remember when lefty demanded the west invade Darfur in Sudan to do Something

                          You must not be following things over here.

                          Trump has surrounded himself with a number of hawks like Pompeo and Bolton. Hell, Bolton has been at the forefront of advocating attacking the Norks for ages. The idea these asshats have been responsible for talking him out of pursuing stupid wars doesn’t make much sense.

                            Muck was probably refering rather to Matthis and the few like him that are left (or who left recently) and who were hitting the brake very strongly to avoid the things that Pompeo and Bolton wanted to initiate
