    that's still not at all non-interventionism. Using this logic then Ronald Reagan never intervened in South America in the 1980's because he never utilized US Army ground forces.

    So Trump didn’t want to assassinate or he did? Or do you count lead up deliberation, consultation and debate up until decision time actual micro decisions? Does pondering and alternative hypotheses by the Commander-in-Chief count as decisions?

    For that matter, IS Trump the Commander-in-Chief or was it Matthis? Because the only way Matthis prevents Trump from taking authoritative action is to outrank him and you should know that he did not.

    What happened was that Trump may have wanted to assassinate Assad in theory but changed his mind after further consideration and advice.

    Hence he was telling the truth and demonstrating 5 star leadership.

    Hence your thread is a waste of server room

    Yes it is. His platform was removing the US military from costly foreign deployments. He has asserted power and achieved peace deals without deploying troops.

    Again this cannot be argued they are facts.

    I have an aunt who loved travelling to the ME. She said Syria was just beautiful, nothing less. But its hard not to put the fault on Assad, even tho america has helped a lot to make things a mess.

    umm, the US still has nearly one thousand military bases on foreign soil and the defense budget is nearly 900 billion dollars. There are still thousands of US troops in the Middle East and the United States is still bombing at least five countries all the while launching record numbers of drone strikes. Not at all sure how this is removing the US military from costly foreign deployments. Keep in mind, this is also occurring while the US has record spending as well as debt and deficit levels. Thus, the US is still engaging in very costly military behavior all throughout the world.

    Trump say he wanted to assasinate Assad but Mattis stopped him, hence you are literally arguing against Trump's own words.

    Trump lied about Woodward's book in 2018. And now he indirectly admits he lied. Just more proof Trump is a pathological liar and his supporters are just as much morally bankrupt.

    Costly foreign deployments ? Nearly one thousand US military bases remain on foreign soil; the military budget is nearly 900 billion dollars; there continue to be thousands of US military personnel in the Middle East; the US is still flying record numbers of drone strikes..... How does all of this not have to do with engaging in costly foreign involvement/deployment exactly ?

    So far only the source for Woodward's book and Trump himself have admitted to this... <TheWire1> Could it be... <Moyes5>

    He didn't sign or bring about a peace deal since Israel was never at war with UAE and Bahrain.

    The Israel - UAE/KSA friendship really blossomed during the Obama administration. If Hillary was president now, they would still be signing normalization. Trump did nothing , the path was already set before Trump took office.

    I don't really agree with you, because I think Trump is not only a liar but also corrupt, and if you gave him truth serum he'd be in jail in about 5 seconds. We can agree to disagree though and wait for the election.

    Ok let me put it this way. Do you think Woodward's books are accurate?

    I was speaking on the recent peace deals that were made/ the killing of a rogue Iranian terrorist general that resulted in no further troops being deployed.

    You can’t erase all of the US bases around the world in 4 years or even 50 years. No further addition of US troops overseas during Trumps presidency is a major win, not sure how you can logically argue that.

    So Trumpers:

    You boasted about how we all should be on the side of Assad and praised Turning a blind eye to Syria. Now he's admitted that he wanted to have Assad killed?

    We await your take.
