    Senate admonishes Trump on Syria

    https://thehill.com/homenews/senate/...trump-on-syria

    Senators voted 68-23 to end debate on an amendment that warns Trump against drawing down troops in Syria and Afghanistan. Senators still need to hold a second vote to add the amendment to the foreign policy bill, which will likely take place next week.

    Magic number.......just sayin’....

    It's a non-binding resolution. Meaningless political posturing. Pretty much what one would expect from Senators who's bread and butter come from corporate donors.

    Sooooo did the 'Corporates' Butter BushII's bread to invade Iraq????

    My money was on the Imperialists- the Neo-cons who conned us with 'planting the seeds of democracy in a desert'

    Bad ol' Corporates....

    Seems to me I remember some stuff from the progressives back in the Bush II days about Cheney and that company he used to be a part of.

    Yeah...the politicians back then took care of their bread and butter, too.

    It sucks that we finally have a President who cares more for our people than about the politicians, eh?

    Mixed message- back when Chumply and Shrub pushed hard for the debacle in the desert it wasn't Congress that pushed and produced 'facts' but private ultra-conservative 'think tanks'. Neo-Cons.

    Big oil certainly wasn't against the invasion but it was the propaganda wing on the rabid right that paid for the 'advisors' that cranked out the causes to invade.

    tRump cares about no one but tRump….

    I guess Obama cared for our people more than Congress as well- and got pummeled when a new terror group arose in Syria. What you gonna say when terrorists spring back up again????

    Oh but let's ignore tRump's handpicked Intel Agencies all disagree with his world wide assessments.... corporate shills no doubt...

    You actually think Trump cares about YOU!

    That's adorable.
    That sucking sound you hear is the revolving door installed in the West Wing. Trump continues to hire the best people. Be careful, that door is about to start spinning faster than the rotors on Marine One.
