    Sooo let me get this straight... the 'Debt Ceiling' (it's just a term for a formality of passing government spending instead of doing it for each and every department individually... that's ALL IT IS!), which is just a collection of government bills to keep the government running (you know, keeping the US of fucking A running!), was OOKed by the Republicans in Congress AND the Republicans in the Senate... yet Trump's refusal to sign this basic government management bill is the fault of the Democrats? FUCK OFF!!! Ya gonna blame the deaths of children at the US/Mexican border on Democrats too??? ... (watches news) ... oh for fuck sake.

    I m kinda over war. How did we get stuck in another Middle Eastern comflict? People are dying all over the world but we don't send troops there. Or maybe we do and the media isn't making it big news. All the billions of dollars we spend for dropping bombs, we could just give these people cash and say..hey, promise to be good or we will flatten your town.

    It's very interesting that people who actually committed crimes and have lied. They have stolen money and fix their party to place her as the front runner which is actually illegal by the and infringe on the voting process dose not get mention or goes to jail how interesting that is. Also heaven forbid get made fun of or attack in any way and then you'll have all a hail of protest, angry words, and threats to you and your family.

    The US troops withdraw from Syria. That's good. let Israel to fight alone. Too many American sacrificed for Israel. The US troops was never invited by Syria. Russia is there because they are invited by Syria. Russia defeated ISIS.

    Even German Generals at the last refused to take the orders of Hitler. He'd gone completely crazy telling the Generals to murder their men and then themselves. I kid you not. If the Pentagon obeys this traitor draft dodger knowing Putin ordered him to do it, they are as stupid as he is by default. Any decent American would tell the Generals to ignore Trump just like they did when he yelled and cussed at them because Kim Jong un wanted the United States to pull out of South Korea! Trump's a mentally deranged child whose never known what he was doing. DON'T OBEY HIM NOW GENERALS! Don't let our allies down to be murdered. Putin can go jump in any lake as long as it is freezing. What a wonderful thought. A frozen psychopath popsicle. :) They could bury his body where they put the nuclear poison they bury. Of course Putin's body might be more poisoness than that stuff. hummm And doesn't it have a half life of 5,000 years? Nuclear waste? :( Songs

    Don't you think that they won't let no isis be defeated? ISIS is their insurgent into the Muslim nations.. Bombing and killing the population in the Muslim countries. Have you heard of any attack on the so called 'infedels' who they r supposedly against? None (For which I am grateful. If they had, they would have known the true force of the free world army prowess) . Cant anyone see through this facade? ISIS is a branch of the Cia in leu with the Israeli army. Simple. Lol

    Keep reading from your propaganda script Colbert... "Assad's regime." Why regime? The man was elected by the majority of his people. That makes him a legitimate President. Why are US forces in Syria? Did anyone invite them there, Assad for instance? US troops just invited themselves into Syria, like they invited themselves into Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan... I've lost track of all the countries the US have gatecrashed, the list just keeps getting bigger. You know the US have been there because bodies are left strewn around like so much confetti. What comes out of corporate media is CIA propaganda masked as comedy. The US backed ISIS against Syria's legitimate President... Fact!

    RE: THE WALL. I have 2 friends who live in Baja. They are US citizens. One owns a business in San Diego and travels every day. He & his wife both travel up and bought in Baja because they could live on a golf course for a lot less money than San Diego. The other friend lives on the beach. He comes up to the border and takes the Trolley to work. It seems that ifI know 2, others in San Diego must know more. Trump doesn't understand how close we live; how many people come to work across the border every day. We are Border Friendly.

    interesting historical tidbit: while other developers were building modern steel skyscrapers in nyc back in the 1980's, trump bucked the trend and went with a concrete trump tower, obstensibly to save money- but actually paid a record $22 million for the concrete, purchased from the mob, who monopolized the nyc concrete industry. no one has determined how much of that amount trump laundered for them, but he then sold apartments in the building for excessive amounts to anonymous buyers whose only amenity requirement was the inclusion of a very large washing machine.

    Russia already has influence in Syria since 2015 so the withdrawal won't increase Russia's incremental power by a great deal. Russia has stabilised the Syrian government by providing a lifeline and intensive airstrikes coupled with special operations against rebel and jihadist groups.
    What we are seeing in Syria is a proxy war. The US wants to overthrow the Assad government, while the Russians are aiming to keep Assad as power, the only Party they see as stable and legitimate.
    What is more concerning is Turkey's influence which can excaberate tensions and give jihadist groups room to expand their operations. Not just ISIS but al qaeda and their affiliates.

    the US presence in the region is the cause of ISIL existence, NOT the solution!! ISIL didn't even exist before the US war on Iraq.
    "just shoot it" is not the answer to all your problems. US needs to stop its sabotage efforts in Syria because their initial plan of regime-change FAILED (quite miserably, i might add).. everything they do is just going to result in more human suffering WITHOUT the status quo. the Syrian Republican Guards, Army, Navy and Airforce weathered the storm. they didn't just lose soldiers, they lost generals and even a defense minister KIA (killed in action) and they are still standing.. if they didn't bow down after all that, they are not going to bow down after few US threats.
    in time, they will reestablish air superiority over the republic and they will challenge the US presence.. the US soldiers will die to keep this country destabilized and gain nothing by the end of the day.. or respect international law (according the intentional law US presence is not legal), and support the (Astana process) which achieved with talks only more than what the US could ever hope to achieve in 3 decades and with 3000 dead soldiers.

    They cheered the lack of the wall ... that does NOT mean they WANT illegal immigrants. They just want a method that works. Walls don't work.
    If we had a courageous President we would go down to Nicaragua and Guatemala and militarily take out their corrupt gangs and any military or political gang members. Real Presidents did the same in Panama, Cuba, Iraq, Kuwait and Grenada.
    We were also doing the same thing in Syria ... until Trump retreated.
