    What do you think of this article about placing our troops in Saudi Arabia?

    Justin Amash Rips Trump For Shuffling Troops, Treating Them As 'Mercenaries' | HuffPost
    Have our troops become just mercenaries to be used by the Trump Administration for what ever purposes they feel is desirable as long as the country they go to pay the freight. Will those payments include the training costs and those costs of having the soldiers away from their families to help protect Trump's and Jared's money lenders oil fields? What so you think of this practice?

    First of all consider the source. Secondly, as long as Public Law 107-40 remains in effect the President may deploy troops to any nation he pleases, any time he pleases, without additional consent or approval from Congress. That is what happens when Congress enacts a bad law and gives away their constitutional authority to declare wars. Bush43 used Public Law 107-40 to wage war against Afghanistan. Obama used Public Law 107-40 to wage war in the Sudan, Yemen, Libya, and Syria.

    Once Congress gives the President the authority to use military force, they have no say in how the Commander-In-Chief does it. If Trump wants to increase military forces in one location, while reducing military forces in another location, as long as he has congressional approval to be in those locations with the military he has that constitutional authority. Congress has no say over military deployments once they have granted their approval for the President to use military force.

    Justin Amish is a known anti-Trumper and Trump resistor so his opinion means very little to me.
    Plus, he actually believes Hillary Clinton is a Donald Trump asset.

    Justin Amash on Twitter: "The thing we know for sure is that Hillary Clinton is a Donald Trump asset."

    Sounds like a good deal, to me! What's the problem with a country asking for our help and they pick up the tab?

    That would be a ****ing first!

    It's high time someone in our government said, "You want our help? Ok...what's in it for us?"
