    It is becoming a theme: the UN,Pakistan,Palestine.

    "We give you money for nothing in return"

    Who will fill the void when the USA nakedly shows her attachments are purely mercenary and to be withdrawn at the whim of a disreputable fool?

    Will it be business as usual when or if Trump is hoiked out of office one way or another?

    No. The voids are already being filled by China all over the world... both in dealing with nations as well as international cooperative agreements such as trade. The US is choosing to surrender one of the primary means to convey our values--one proven over the past 70 years and largely responsible for the most peaceful period in human history. But now we're going to allow China's fantastic view on human rights to replace our...wonderful.

    Donal T may be voted out of office, but he will not be hoiked out of office. Why on earth should the US of A give money to organisations and countries that despise the US of A. Here in the UK we are still doing just that, giving money away to organisations and countries that despise us. Lynx_Fox says that China will fill the void, well let them do it, see how that works for them.

    Factual? He's constantly fabricating or exaggerating, that is not factual.

    He is indeed a man, but beyond that he isnt much of anything else. And is not factual at all

    Wow, you seem to have an angle on this. Donald T is usually referred to as a racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, and many more things, well done to you.

    What exactly is the point you are attempting to make? Potus is not omnipotent, though trump would like poeople to think he is.

    Leave Dave to his little mental masturbation. He's just trolling for the sake of trolling at this point. Once upon a time, you could has a discussion with him, but those days are long passed. Much like the the days of respectable Republican leaders are long passed.

    I only have to type a few words and I get accused of trolling, so be it. Check your post, you have made a little error.

    Your meaning is that if I do not share your political views, I am a troll, and now by your words, you are trying to influence a mod to take some sort of action against me. Shame on you dude.

    But you are actively avoiding doing so, thus its pretty clear seeming that you are a troll.

    So you say, but all you are trying to do is queer the pitch.

    That again, does not answer the questions.

    So you have avoided the simple process of answering 6 different times now.

    It's clear you dont actually want to have any discussion.

    And all you've done, so far, is introduce an irrelevancy and then avoided saying why you bothered to do so.
    Please answer the question posed.

    This particular thread died a death after post number 3 on January 7th 2018. The thread was resurrected (post number 4 ) by a dude from Poland on October 30th 2018 who wanted Donald T to become president of Poland. Post number 5 was by Paleoichneum on October 30th 2018 disagreeing with post number 4. Post number 6 was made by myself on November 1st 2018 agreeing with the Polish dude in post number 4, and that is the point where everything went South. Paleoichneum asked an inane question which I could not answer, this is a tactic that he has used for many years. When people do not answer he asks the same question again and again demanding an answer. Then eventually he gets moderator intervention, you probably do not keep a log of people asking for moderator intervention, but if you did, Paleoichneum would most probably be top of the pops. We are both politically apposed , I am right wing of Nigel Farage, he is left wing of Bernie Sanders.

    No, he didn't.
    I saw this thread getting a lot of responses and checked as to what was happening.

    you probably do not keep a log of people asking for moderator intervention, but if you did, Paleoichneum would most probably be top of the pops.
    All reported threads are kept in a particular (mod only) sub-forum. And Paleo is remarkably low on the list of reporters.

    And you still haven't explained the relevance, if any, of your post.
    Last chance.

    This thread has only 22 responses. Your mod sub forum most probably does not go back too many years because of the disentigration of this forum over recent years. I have to say that you were one of the key players in the disentigration of this forum due to your spat with Harold.
