    Col. Pat Laing, a former Green Beret and CIA type asks the question that must be on many people's minds. Why doesn;t he get rid of people in his administration that seem to spend their time frustrating his stated aims and policies.

    In an earlier post Laing lamented that though Trump appointed Bolton, and yet despite Bolton's recent statement that appeared to countermand Trump stated policy of withdrawing US troops from Syria, hasn't been sacked.

    In this post he wonders in regard to the Wall if the Neocons, the Israeli's, the Brits and Russia have something "juicy" on him that hinders free movement?

    Btw, for those here with an interest in the USS Liberty affair, scroll down to the comments section below where Laing discusses his knowledge about what really happened based on his reading of classified NSA intercepts. He provides links to article including one for Al Jazeera that includes his brief comments and then the lengthier presentation of British film-maker Richard Belfied (who was a friend of mine back in the day - but now retired) who's hobby story was the USS Liberty affair.

    Trump is a salesman...current foreign policy is not his.... the only thing that may be his is the wall. Re the Kurds, it would be a mistake for the Kurds to rush into any agreement with Assad, nothing is as it seems or at least the US withdrawal certainly isn't, they need to pay attention to what Pompeo is saying.

    I have thought the same thing. Obama politicized everything even getting rid of a record number of generals so he could turn our military into a social experiment. Why doesn't Trump completely clean house and get rid of every Obama operative?

    We have seen what then happened ... remember the hire and fire orgy in his administration of people whom he rated to be good one and following him, eh?

    Trump wants only to have puppets who submit to his will and help him to get his will ... no matter if Trump is right or wrong with it! I call such persons to be despotes ...

    What is wrong with Trump?

    Not much other than that he doesn't behave like a politician.

    He behaved like a politician long before he even ran for office, and he admitted so.

    Trump is likely the most compromised President in history. It isn't so much of who has compromising info on his as it is who doesn't? Truly a shame that there are people who see this yet still support him as if none of it is his fault.

    The man is so mentally unstable and incompetent that he can't even speak in complete sentences. I wish Mueller would hurry up.

    I think Trump may be a burger short of a brain cell

    He disagrees. When confronted, under oath, about his habit of lying is ass off, his excuse was, "I’m no different from a politician running for office."

    Having never been to that part of the world, and therefore knowing precious little of the cultural differences between the Kurds and the Syrians, I can imagine that some sort of new deal might be worked out with Assad so that a home for the Kurds may be found in northeast Syria. Can a functional Kurdistan be established today? It would offer a peaceful resolution that all might be interested in.

    I agree that would be ideal, however if you asked me what I think will happen then I believe the Israelis, US and Saudi's would absolutely not want this to occur unless Iran withdraws from Syria (and Turkey agrees not to attack the Kurds). If Iran remains they are more likely to use north eastern Syria as a wedge against Iran.... (just a personal opinion)

    Can you name an administration that didn't hire people that followed the president's will?

    lol

    That is kind of their job.

    President: "So if I hire you will you do your best to fulfill all of the tasks I give you"?

    Applicant: "Absolutely not sir, I do not like you or believe in your policies".

    President: "Fantastic, you are hired".

    Hahahaha

    It doesn't work like that lefties.

    FOX is going to run out of cabinet members soon.
    Edit:
    Already he has to call on CNBC for advisors.

    Lol ...

    Compare the number of people which were hired and fired by Trump during the last 2 years with those of the last 10 Presidents. Trump is holding a huge record here! Any questions?

    What Trump wants are asslickers around him with no will or own opinion putting above his will! If Trump says taht 1+1=3, then he wants no one around him who tells him he is wrong!
