Dictators like Putin maybe.

That should suit you.

You apparently are always telling your Polish friends that they should think better of him ...

I find that most of what is currently happening would have been unthinkable not so long ago:

the UK committing suicide as an economy and a state;
the USA - ditto;
Poland - ditto (the idiots now want to seek war reparations from Germany, to which the Germans' response will be: sure, but give us Silesia back!);
the EU - ditto.

To be replaced by what exactly, Prudence?

Mi5 watchers say you can believe what you can see, usually.

Russian anti aircraft missiles to be assembled in turkey, one presumes they then test fire a random one.

Trust and risk are interesting fields of study, someome should write books on it.

Israel apparently negotiating with Saudi to run direct flights for haj pilgrims.

Would have been unthinkable until recently.

Will it happen ......

As I said on one of these threads as soon as Saudi announced the blockade, it did so because it got the green light from US and Israel. Hence timing just after Trump's visit.

Saudi wants to lever Qatar away from Iran, Israel would welcome this, plus support for the initiative helps cement its relations with Sunni Arabs without having to address Palestinian issue, plus trying to erode Qatari support for Hamas.

US can support Saudi and Israel and still promote itself as peace broker between Saudi and Qatar.

The most it has to lose is an airbase which can be replaced elsewhere ...

This is as far as I got with 3dc's link:
Nothing could be further from the truth. Comey was a leftist plant, and President Trump knew it.

You deserve the moron you have as president. He reflects your values alright...

For the record, Comey was a registered Republican most of his life. Not that facts matter when you have morons in charge. Trump is a Fake President. (Sad)

Fine, have it your way. Name ONE good reason for Saudi Arabia sanctions on Qatar to be backed by the USA.

Because "support for Al Queda" it is clearly not, since a) it is Saudi Arabia that has been the main propagator of radical Islamic terrorism, and b) the USA itself has done much to establish and support Al Queda along the way.

So, yes, I agree that the Jared Kushner angle is just a minor quabble.

The main reasons for the USA to attack Qadar are obviously a) its oil and b) (a minor reason) that it supports El Jeezera.

The above are not "good" reasons to penalise let alone wage war on a country, since they represent an aggressive stance of predatory nations. Therefore not to be condoned.

So, Jared got his oar in too, while at it. Just a by the by, I agree.

And your evidence for saying 'seems to be'?

Treating speculation as virtual proof of guilt should be viewed as just a waste of time.

On here of course where posters are only interested in pushing their own agendas it is par for the course .....

The "right-wing" view of Comey is indeed quite coherent, although it is all an educated guess and speculation.

My main objection is the right-wing use of the term "swamp" - implying that the Clinton-Obama cronyism is about to be swept out by the sheriff Trump, who rides into town to install a New Era of Righteousness for Da People.

Actually, what we are observing are gang turf wars, with the hapless and clueless populations on both sides of the Atlantic held to ransom.

The new Trump regime is no better. Take one example: the tough US stance on Qatar appears to be American revenge for Jared Kushner's failed machinations to get a $500 million loan from Qatar in order to save his failing office building at the - appropriately numbered - 666 Fifth Avenue, Manhattan.

Ouch.

Is this appropriate that Jared Kushner should be running the foreign policy of the largest "democracy" in the Western world?

If the UK had followed Trump's policy and banned entrants from Libya then the Manchester attrocity would not have happened !

Trump has the right idea !
