The La La Land of Conservatives by Jacob Hornberger:

He's right, but it seems that liberals also live in the same La La Land if you count the Obama administration and its supporters as liberals.

US foreign policy has mostly been to have no foreign policy.
This is much better than having clear goals that allow global antagonists to predict and exploit your actions.
But on the other hand, it removes the chance of a 'mission accomplished' statement.

Trump had sumthing to say about that in hiz interview on ABC tonite.

David Muir asked him about hiz reckless statements saying "we shoud take the oil". Trumps ansr went into the mistake uv warning ISIS that the military wuz going to strike the town they had taken over weeks in advans. He iznt going to warn anybody befor 'we' take the oil.

He iznt merely stupid like Bush. He iz crazy.

Now, bekuz The Prezident uv The United States uv America sed that on national TV, US forin polisy, az ritely interpreted by the rest uv the world iz that we may show up anywhere at any time without warning and steal their resoursez.

So, uuuu... We're Pirates now? Or Vikingz?
