        Sloop John B
        Song by The Beach Boys

        We come on the Sloop John B
        My grandfather and me
        Around Nassau town we did roam
        Drinking all night
        Got into a fight
        Well I feel so broke up
        I want to go home

        So hoist up the John B's sail
        See how the main sail sets
        Call for the Captain ashore
        Let me go home, let me go home
        I want to go home, yeah yeah
        Well I feel so broke up
        I want to go home

        The first mate he got drunk
        And broke in the Cap'n's trunk
        The constable had to come and take him away
        Sheriff John Stone
        Why don't you leave me alone, yeah yeah
        Well I feel so broke up, I want to go home

        So hoist up the John B's sail
        See how the main sail sets
        Call for the Captain ashore
        Let me go home, let me go home
        I want to go home, let me go home
        Why don't you let me go home
        (Hoist up the John B's sail)
        Hoist up the John B
        I feel so broke up I want to go home
        Let me go home

        The poor cook he caught the fits
        And threw away all my grits
        And then he took and he ate up all of my corn
        Let me go home
        Why don't they let me go home
        This is the worst trip I've ever been on

        So hoist up the John B's sail
        See how the main sail sets
        Call for the Captain ashore
        Let me go home, let me go home
        I want to go home, let me go home
        Why don't you let me go home

            Just over a month ago, and yet with the dumb-speed engines rocket-propelling the Trump bandwagon over the cliff it feels like so very much more. Then again, I cannot conceive of anything Donny-adjacent to which the word "wisdom" could be positively applied, so that may cause further personal time dilation.

                Yeah but let's be honest, he's more likely to be a bad swimmer than he is to walk on water.

                                Destroy the economy of Turkey? That's what Trump want you to believe? You can add that to the rest of Lies as told to the public? Knowing he owns two Towers and make money off?

                                          In my great and unmatched wisdom, the ignorant bigot in the White House should be carried out of the White House in a straight jacket.

                                            Steve Douchebag was desperate to say something to support Trump but it’s difficult to say something positive about treachery and betrayal, of course he manages to say something totally beneath any genuine journalist ! (Sorry of course he’s not a journalist just a high paid lackey)

If other country's stop selling military stuff, the US wont have any Tanks - Jets - Ships - Drones - missiles. the US buys more Tech - Software - Hardware then any other country in the top 10. The US needs others more then others need the US.

The only ones that U.S. could find were the Kurds, whom were courted by the promise of get a independent State away Syria, something that everybody knows that was lawfully impossible and that Turkey would never allow it because for the point of view of Turkey the PKK and the Kurdish armed forces are terrorists. Turkey is a very important strategic ally for the NATO, so Trump had to choose between protect Kurds, dismember NATO and turn Turkey into an enemy (the only NATO member that has true influence in Middle East), or abandon Kurds, that paradoxically is the best option to get the peace in Syria, because Kurds have been forced to negotiate with Syria government to reach agreements and join their forces to expel the common enemy (the Turks).
