In some countries I've worked, that's how they get their military conscripts.

Hey, wait a minute, instead of catch and release, we could send them to Afghanistan to protest the Taliban! It always comes down to matching the right people to the right jobs.

We expect better in a country of laws.

Trump is already trying to surrender to the Taliban - just like Nixon did in Vietnam. No reason to protest against forces that have already won that war. Because George Jr (Cheney) failed to do any phase four planning.

For those who do not know, when a military victor does not do phase four planning within 6 months, that military victor ends up getting defeated. As demonstrated in Afghanistan. And again in Iraq.

In both cases, disciplines of Fox News never learned (were never told) that.

Trump says it's ok for "Microsoft or another very secure, 'very American' company" to buy TikTok, but he wants a kickback.

As explained in the book "The Art of the Deal".

When do all contractors, that did not get paid for Trump Taj Mahal, get their kickback?

And why do Fascists say that was a good deal?
