Trump Threatens Venezuela With Unspecified "Military Option"

Submitted by: fancylad 4 months ago in News & Politics


As the Trump administration grapples with a potential nuclear standoff with North Korea, the president on Friday night publicly declared that he is refusing to rule out a U.S. “military option” for Venezuela, another country currently engulfed in crisis. 

“We have many options for Venezuela, and by the way, I’m not going to rule out a military option,” Trump told reporters. “We have many options for Venezuela. This is our neighbor... We have troops all over the world in places that are very, very far away. Venezuela is not very far away. And the people are suffering and they're dying. We have many options for Venezuela, including a possible military option, if necessary.”

I'll just drop this here...

Shelworth Why is Mean Mister Trump threatening the Socialist Utopia of Venezuela? After all, Chavez was Obama's BFF! As was Fidel in Cuba! They both were chosen through free and fair elections, unlike the USA where the Russians controlled every aspect of the election! Well, whatever the Dirty Jews didn't already control, eh? The perfection of life in those wonderful examples of Communism are a threat to the Capitalist Pig-dogs, am I left? 

And what is ANY US President supposed to do?

If Trump DOESN'T say something? He's evil and wrong.
If Trump DOES say something? He's... evil and wrong.

I'm beginning to detect a pattern here... (end sarc)

5cats It was absolutely appropriate, as the president of this nation, for him to comment on the awful events in Venezuela. It was equally inappropriate for him to bring up the military option.

Imagine if there was a person who walked around with an assault rifle and loudly proclaimed "I'm not ruling out violence!" every time he wanted something.

At the cafeteria:
No, I won't give up my seat...
I'M NOT RULING OUT VIOLENCE! MY GUN IS SO READY I COULD KILL YOUR ENTIRE LUNCH PARTY WITH THE PRESS OF THE TRIGGER. LOOK I'VE CHARGED MY WEAPON AND THE SAFETY IS OFF. MY FINGER IS ON THE TRIGGER. <muzzle sweeps the table>

On the bus:
Sorry sir, this is an express bus direct to the terminal. We don't stop in the suburbs...
I WILL BRING FIRE AND FURY DOWB ON THIS ENTIRE BUS.
Seriously it'a against the rules.
MAYBE I DIDN'T GO FAR ENOUGH WHEN I THREATENED FIRE AND FURY.

Draculya That's Venezuela's current dictatorship talking, correct? Murdering it's own people, killing political rivals and the press like all good socialists do...

Matt Stone & Trey Parker! If you are reading this, please make "Team America, Part Deux".  It writes itself with Trump in command.

Switzerland, you're next.

Seriously, doesn't this guy realize that he's giving Kim Jon Un exactly what he wants by treating him like an equal and making him a player on the world stage.  Let's now do the same in Venezuela

david-morris How has appeasement worked for the past 50+ years?
No nukes! 
No threats... ever!
No military actions against South Korea (look it up)
No crimes against humanity! Not one!

It's ALL Trump's fault now! NK was another Socialist Utopia until Nov 2016. Then and only then did the NK nuclear and missile programs begin... fucking tool.

5cats , why do you feel the need to call everyone names that don't agree with you?  It is just like your hero Trump though.  I made my statement and I'm not going to waste any time going back and forth with you on this.  With this, I'm done with you here.  Responding to you is just like Trump legitimizing Un.  I won't legitimize you any longer, and I hope others here will do the same.

david-morris You should have see what I edited out :-) 

You have nothing, no position no facts and certainly no knowledge of the situation. You just regurgitate the MSM (DNC) talking points like they were relevant or something...

Oh and don't answer any questions put to you, heavens no! Because appeasement has worked so well these past 50 years it should just keep rolling along...
