Under Obama it was under Sharia

No it wasn't but I have no doubt that you truly believe that

All Trump is doing is making the US irrelevant as a world leader

Something I'm sure Trumptards probably think is a good idea

1. Why does it matter? I mean, why do we need to step in and have Israel's back on this, they're more than capable of handling their own.

2. Which brings me to the second part. They've been occupying since they won the 1967 war. Seems to me they've won fair and square.

But why they can't just give east Jerusalem to the Palestinians so they can have a capital too is beyond me. To quote Rodney King and Reginald Denny, can't we all just get along?  Undecided

LOL @ Trumptards thinking that ANYTHING Trump does must de facto be "the right thing"

Trump has just show us yet again that he's the biggest crybaby on the planet


If he does what he says again, he has the biggest balls, right or not.

I don't know.  I'm not Israeli, but wouldn't that be to Israelis like it would be to Americans giving up half of Washington DC to the Mexicans?

Not really. Palestinians are already there and share the country with Israel. It's a mess, and they just need to learn to live together.

Okay, DC might have been a bad one.  What about half of California and half of Texas?

Was listening to a discussion about this overwhelming rebuke by the UN.  Turns out more than 50 of the countries who voted in favor are either Muslim or heavily Muslim.  (I haven't verified this.)  Also said there was something like 70 or more abstentions and no-shows?  When you do the actual math and factor in all countries, it was pretty much a tie.  If all of that is true, just more evidence of how dishonest the media is and how they constantly try and influence public opinion.

That's right, 21 countries.  Don't have the list of those.

So 35 abstentions and 21 no-shows, for a total of 56 countries that essentially voted no, plus 9 countries that actually voted no.

Yeah, even the MSM reports that Palestinians were disappointed.

"Thursday's vote, while a victory for the Palestinians, was significantly lower than its supporters had hoped for, with many forecasting at least 150 "yes" votes. It is noteworthy that 21 countries were absent."

I don't know if it really takes big balls to make a decision that you have no chance of having to pay the consequences for personally. Bush going into Iraq didn't put him at risk one iota. Same with Trump moving the capital.

The past three presidents said they would do it, but didn't have to stones to pull the trigger.

I have no dog in the hunt on this issue. I don't care where the capital is.  As CNN even pointed out, its ludicrous for countries with horrific human rights violations like North Korea and Iran, complaining about the decision to move the capital. The UN is a busted coalition according to many and does little to help for all it's bluster. Having said that, I've also heard foreign policy experts, National Security advisors say the money we send to many of those countries the Donald threatened to stop, isn't just about charity, its for their help in global security in one way or another. Now I'm just a guy who likes to watch action movies and go to the gym. While I could pretend to state categorically that Trumps statement about those voting against us would be cut off is good or bad, but honestly, I'd be talking out my ass.. much like I suspect Trump was..
