Well Crepe, it's because of the definition in the dictionary I guess?

war·mon·ger:
noun
a person who encourages or advocates aggression towards other countries or groups.



Again, you should know as well as I how fast time goes by Wink

Do you really believe that President Trump is encouraging or advocating war?  I see him acting in a way that protects the United States and discourages another nation from warmongering against us.  Perhaps that's one of the reasons we're on the opposite sides of this right now, but you'll come around.   Wink   Smiley

Re: Was It Smart Of Trump To Be A War Monger?

seems that some people like it

"As tensions rise and explosive language flies between Trump and North Korea, the president has regained standing in his national approval rating.

According to the latest Rasmussen survey, 45 percent of Americans approve of President Trump -- the highest his rating has been in the same poll since July 12. His approval rating exactly one week ago stood at a staggeringly low 39 percent."

I do....

U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday threatened military intervention in Venezuela, a surprise escalation of Washington's response to Venezuela's political crisis that Caracas disparaged as "craziness."

From the article you posted.

Quote:
"The people are suffering and they are dying. We have many options for Venezuela including a possible military option if necessary," Trump told reporters in an impromptu question and answer session.


Many options.  Any C-I-C worth his salt has many military options for various situations.  My first husband was working in War Planning when he retired from the military.  The only thing he told me about the job was that I would be very surprised if I knew some of the places we had plans for bombing if necessary.  That's what smart, prepared nations do. 

Personally, I don't want another Pearl Harbor type situation where we aren't prepared.  What President Trump and his staff are doing isn't warmongering, it's smart preparedness, something obummer neglected to do.

In dealing with the enemy, *EVERYTHING* should *ALWAYS* be on the table.

Only a fool would limit his options. Common Sense 101.

Speaking of that "Common sense 101"

Trump wants to go into Venezuela because of just what happening in Venezuela

I'm not so sure about that Roll Eyes


I didn't say that Venezuela was warmongering with us.  I said that it discourages them from doing so.

You may not be so sure about it, but you also aren't sure that you won't.  I'll accept that. 

Do you care to share with me/us how President is warmongering?  My inquiring mind is inquiring.

I know you despise Trump, but putting words in his mouth does not help your cause.

He said military intervention would be an option. He did *NOT* say that he wants to go into Valenzuela.

I have already started a thread on Trump and Valenzuela. In it, I plainly said that we should have no involvement there. Let everyone there suffer and die. We have better things to do than worry about riff raff.
