We don’t make friends with genocidal monsters. They are put on trial and executed

We got along just fine with Uncle Joe Stalin during WW II. Twenty million dead Ukrainians didn't slow us down a bit. When fighting an implacable and deadly foe you do what you have to do to win. You want a pretty picture, go to a museum.

Excellent post, potlatch!
Communication hasn't been his strongest asset.

"Do we have any intelligence of how many terrorists or insurgents there were in Mexico in January? Do we have any reasonable estimate as to their numbers now? Have the government and American forces been able to gain control over the borders in order to stem the flow of foreigners and illegals coming into America? Do we have any idea of the ratio of terrorists to illegals invading now as opposed to in January?"

I wish I could hear him say that, too.
I'm not holding my breath, though.

GOOD post, Phil!

"But I'm willing to compromise: one rope, two nooses; on one side of the limb on a camel: al-Douri; on the other, on an ass: al-Sadr. Yee-hah and it's all good."

I'm in total agreement with you on that.
Yee-hah...that would be the icing on the cake.

That, plus the candygram. ;o)

What a great idea, gonzo!

I bet there are some brilliant minds working on that right now,
unless they’ve already made it.

Can’t wait for the real deal.

“We got along just fine with Uncle Joe Stalin during WW II. Twenty million dead Ukrainians didn’t slow us down a bit.”

Proud of that?
What you’re saying is, we shouldn’t learn from our mistakes?
Millions of people ended up being condemned to life under communism in Eastern Europe. I would hope if we went back, we wouldn’t make the same decisions and allow that to happen again.

“When fighting an implacable and deadly foe you do what you have to do to win.”

That’s not how we operate.
