There’s too many sectarian issues inside the country between the Pashtuns, Hazaras and the Panjshiris to ever have stability. The majority (Pashtuns) create their power base in the instability and with the support of the same groups in Pakistan that fund and support the Taliban.

Saudi Arabia is a terrorist nation. Israel is a perpetual trouble-making charity case. Just back away and take care of America first, for a change. Forget these defense and pro-israel lobbies.

Trump. You think Trump is running as an independent? He’s a republican. For like the fifth attempt now. He’s a loser, and he’s part of the problem.

Mistakes like this, on such a large scale, for year after year, are why voters no longer trust the Republican and Democratic parties, or the machinery of the U.S. government, including the armed services. Those all created this situation and fed off its corruption.

America needs a leader who is not part of that system.

That’s why I will probably for Trump.

Between this and Iraq…. probably some of the biggest mistakes America ever made. 6 trillion dollars wasted on “freedom in the middle east.” These people don’t want freedom. They want to eat others’ brains and put in Twitter.

Told you so.
