Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, October 12, 2019

Political journalists and commentators called out President Donald Trump for sending 2,000 troops to Saudi Arabia Friday, just days after he pulled the U.S. military from Syria ahead of a military operation from Turkey, abandoning Kurdish allies. "Just so I'm clear, we are going to end the endless wars by letting Turks kill Kurds and sending 2000 US soldiers to Saudi Arabia. Ok," declared conservative commentator Erick Erickson.

Trump is no longer in charge of events. He's a drunken man desperately trying to keep his balance.

Nothing says "Never Forget 9-11" quite like blowing some US tax dollars and US lives doing the dirty work for the Fathers and Financiers of 9-11

Of course right-wing Trump Humpers were wrong to say Trump was bringing the troops home ...

And these same Trump patsies were stupidly barfing out how the Democratic Party was the party of war ...

Both parties suck because both parties are for war.

Republican Party = party of the 1% and war

Democratic Party = party of the 10% and war

Working and middle-class Americans are stuck with no real job prospects that will provide them with a secure future -- and they will always end up fighting these endless wars.

War's a coming. Removing fighting fronts. (Syria and Afghanistan) Another tanker bombed. USS Lincoln battle group in place. More troops to the ME. And the need for a major distraction.

The tail is wagging the dog. Remember the bombs that fell on the baby formula plant when Clinton was impeached?

Remember that weekend SheepleSchism invaded Grenada, the same day Iran-Contra broke?

There's a zillion little military ops planned and ready to go underneath the Pentagon.

They keep them in little protective cases that read

There may be a more sinister reason for sending more troops to Saudi Arabia. 9/11 happened in part because numerous Saudi's felt the US base we had in Saudi Arabia at the time was blasphemy and this helped Bin Laden get his recruits and money to fund the attack. That base was left over after the first gulf war. Right after 9/11 Bush quietly closed down that base.

Trump made a speech early in his president about how 9/11 united the nation so much and that maybe this nation needed another 9/11.

Trump blessed Netanyahu's expansion of settlements in Palestinian land. This did not lead to another attack but certainly could have.

Trump moved our embassy to Jerusalem. This did not lead to another attack but certainly could have.

The Muslim ban certainly could have led to another attack.

So now putting troops in Saudi Arabia. Maybe that will get him the attack he wants to get his poll numbers up.

Let's face it, this man really is this sick.

But he wants the attack to come from Iran not Saudi Arabia.

Wait, what? This is f'd up. Blood is going to be paid for the Trump Re-election campaign. Just don't kneel during the anthem. THAT would be disrespectful.

I've never seen a stable genius play 3d chess before... looks like cutting and running on our friends so we can sell our troops to Saudi Arabia as mercenary.... classy.

Is Trump towers Istanbul worth all this?

Of course it is. I said as much on another thread. We will be going to war against Iran. Their nuke thread and desire to stop oil from flowing out of the Persian Gulf is probably considered to be a greater threat to the US.

I'm pretty sure it doesn't have anything to do with Trump Towers as the TDS crowd would like one to think.

I wonder if the Turks are going easy in ISIS fighters in prison camps? Quick, messy and the US could not get away with it. Kurds will back up and keep kicking.

If we get a war, it will be at the Dem's doing.

If Trump wanted a war he could easily have used the Kurds as an excuse to have a war yesterday. Democrats are foaming at the mouth for it.

Trump doesn't need a distraction. Dems do. Steele Dossier, Mueller Report, Muh Russia, Fake Whistleblower I , Fake Whistleblower II. The life cycle of each Dem distraction is now measured in weeks and days.

The Dems have the media focusing on the Biden portion of the perfect Ukraine phone call. It's not going well for Biden and looks like it will sink his candidacy. Biden is the distraction, however. The media edited out a couple pages worth of the transcript to connect the word 'favor' with 'Biden.'

Juicy as the Biden, Pelosi, Kerry, Romney, McCain graft in the Ukraine may be, the real nugget from that conversation is the investigation into Crowdstrike and the DNC server rumored to be on Ukranian soil. Mueller's Report relied heavily if not entirely Crowdstrike's draft investigation of the server. The FBI and DOJ ran a two year special counsel on the flimsy basis of a DNC contractor's partial work product.

The Dems need the distraction of a war because it is now Trump's turn. He is going to keep the focus on the Dems' crimes and corruption.

Anybody think Obama might endorse Biden this week?
