As Trump pulls out of Syria, his voters are following along. Thatís ominous.
The Washington Post ^ | October 25, 2019 | Greg Sargent

A new HuffPost/YouGov poll finds a sharp rise in the percentage of Trump voters who do not think the U.S. bears responsibility to do anything about the fighting in Syria. Apparently, President Trump’s pullout -- which has created an unfolding disaster there, including the threat of a reconstituted Islamic State -- may be driving Trump voters away from any sense of responsibility for that region.

Which raises a question: What will happen to the GOP in the After Trump era? Will it become a more nationalist party, along the lines of the “America first” vision that Trump has been articulating and implementing -- to mostly disastrous effect?

Back in April 2018, this poll found that only 38 percent of Trump voters said the U.S. had no responsibility to do anything about the fighting in Syria, while 30 percent said it did.

Fullfilling campaign promises pleases the people to whom the promise was made.

Draft Ivy Leaguers first and the spawn of the one percenters.

Then, see were the sentiment runs for no-purpose military adventures.

Let the locals fight it out.

An unfolding disaster?
A reconstituted Islamic State?

I follow the news very closely but somehow I missed these two very big stories. At least according to the idiots at the Washington Post. Do they just make this stuff up? Did I really need to ask? .

Just more assholes who insist we stick our noses into everybody elses business, whether invited or not.

Sick of these people.

Sure, fight for friends when necessary, but no more of this “building nations” BS, no more “but they're our allies” BS, no more sacrificing our precious treasures for the rest of the ungrateful world who likes having our military substitute for theirs so that they can oppress their own population with the ever popular Socialism, or whatever other tired ass Marxist ideology derivative is the flavor of the day.

Time for these pussies to solve their own problems.

“Which raises a question: What will happen to the GOP in the After Trump era? Will it become a more nationalist party, along the lines of the “America first” vision that Trump has been articulating and implementing — to mostly disastrous effect?”

Ask the families of fallen which policy they think is ‘disastrous’ - being Globalists, or being Nationalists.

Damn hypocrites. None of them gave a crap about Syria when Obama botched the whole thing by letting Assad walk right across his line in the sand.

The one single consideration the author is concerned about is that this action takes away something his side was hoping to use against Trump, no more, no less. Not one of my liberal friends could find Syria on a map but all of a sudden they simultaneously began showing great concern for how pulling out was reckless and that the lives of our service people were counters in a political game. “You want war?” I ask them and they give me the “Uh, er, well, you know, Orange Man bad” dance. They’d have to be smarter to achieve the level of hypocrisy.
