Deal or No Deal?

 

CAVEAT: The following post employs conjecture to build upon a recent, factual, international incident. The disturbing quotation, below, was never, actually, uttered by anyone… and hopefully never will be.

When it comes down to foreign relations, Donald Trump’s negotiating tactics have always been more about feathering his own nest, rather than working towards making our world a better place for everyone to live in.

Hmm… that doth raise the question…

What sort of peace treaty will Donny be hammering out with the Taliban’s negotiator Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanikzai?

Naturally, Stanikzai knows all about Trump’s obsession with digging up dirt on Joe Biden (and Sonny) and how… via that now infamous, corrupt quid pro quo / “Perfect Phone Call”… the ne’er-do-well, fake prez had attempted to coerce Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky into doing his dirty work for him.

Hmm… that doth raise a followup question…

WHAT IF, during the Trump / Taliban talks, Stanikzai proposes his own, self-serving, quid pro quo? Check this out…

Mr. Trump, I’ve got dirt on Joe Biden and the other major Democratic POTUS wannabes. All of this intel can be yours but… I would like you to do us a favor though. We demand [1] All American and allied troops must leave Afghanistan within three months (never to return), [2] $10 Billion in U.S. aid, annually, for the next 30 years, [3] 75 percent of your nuclear warheads and [4] Zero criticism over the brutal human rights violations we fully intend to inflict on the Afghani.

Hmm… that doth seem to raise (at least) one more question…

Would Trump sell out Afghanistan and America… indeed… the entire free world… just to reinstall his mangy carcass in the Oval Office for another 4 to 28 years?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Talking Turkey

“I know more about ISIS than the generals do, believe me.” ~ Donald J. Trump

Oh really? While I could never claim to be a military genius, it’s safe to say that…

Even I know more about ISIS than Donald J. Trump, believe me.

Granted, this post’s discussion will be limited to my general knowledge re the War on Terror’s Rule #1… namely…

One must never throw allies under the bus. However, that’s exactly what the Trumpster is doing.

The 4 – 1 – 1:

• American and Kurdish forces have both been fighting against ISIS within Syria.
• The Kurds have played a major role in helping America defeat ISIS.
• Trump is now pulling U.S. troops out of Syria.
• That will facilitate Turkish prez Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s invasion of Syria.
• With no American protection, the Turks will slaughter the Kurds.
• Trump’s decision to aid and abet Turkey will also aid and abet ISIS.
• With a resurgence of ISIS… well… need anyone say more?

So, what might motivate this sudden change in Trumpian foreign policy? Hmm… might a “little” quid pro quo be in play? Perhaps Erdoğan was able to shovel up some fake dirt on Joe Biden?

Hey, seeing how the Don has been shaking down nations, spanning our entire globe, why would Turkey be an exception?
