    Re: Nixing international treaties

    Hasn't there been a treaty since 1812 by which the US abandons its territorial claim on all of Canada in exchange for Great Britain agreeing not to wage war on America? That can go for a start. And unlike Iran, we have subs-full of nukes.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Re: Nixing international treaties

    i am puzzled how he can pull out of a treaty which Congress approved.
    It may not be so much that I've conceded your point as that you just can't hear me rolling my eyes.

    I thought I saw somewhere that Congress never did approve the Iran deal?
    The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    Apparently congress never did approve it. The senate attempted to block that deal, which failed.

    I stand corrected.

    The good idea is don't rely solely on the word of the president as he hasn't the authority to make it official.
    He does and he has, as you point out the iran deal was not a formal treaty. The republicans control both houses if they want to abrogate a treaty there is nothinmg stopping them. Right wingers are not noted for actually being able to think through the consequences of their actions as by and large they tend to think their opinions are the only ones that count.

An isolationist US is in keeping with President Trump's election commitments. An American Empire demanding financial penalties from elsewhere in the world is predictable but also illegal. Enough with the braggadocio.

    And I bet you $10 that the Airbus 100-plane deal gets completed, too. Why any country would want to follow America's lead after the last thirty years of world-domination catastrophe beats me.

    Re: Nixing international treaties

    The timing couldn't have been worse. What sort of message does this send just before sitting down with North Korea to reach an agreement? The people in the administration that actually know what they're doing must have been really frustrated.

    This is a crude way for me to put it.



    Congress would not have approved the deal so Obama signed a deal anyway.

    Brooklyn Bridge anyone?

    It was not a bad deal. None of what the Fright-Wingers have constantly whined about regarding the deal is true.
    And Trump spends too much time listening to them.
