    REF: “Kill NAFTA!”

    Was a Trade-War with China not humiliating+prejudicial enough? Maybe, the sweet memories of the lost wars in the Middle East + elsewhere [Vietnam?] were forgotten!

    Remember the “Red Line” in Syria? Disappeared “miraculously” - didn't it?

    Remember the fearsome “attack” with more than sixty - 60 - Tomahawks on a small+dilapidated airport which Syria supposed to have used for launching with the Chemical Weapons?

    Just to joggle your disappearing memory; after the vicious shower of more than 60 Tomahawks; there was no casualty at all, just MINOR damage to the already dilapidated small airport and NO loss of ANY Syrian or Russian War-Planes! And The BEST joke was that the airport began functioning NORMALLY within 24 Hrs - THAT vicious was the fearsome attack!

    Always wondered from which Toy-Shop were the missiles bought? Maybe imported from China?

    chronic i.e pathological
    Boy what happened about your raging that Trump the Chump was going to do to Canada over NAFTA? Both Canada and Mexico defeated your snake oil selling president, and have substantially improved their position.
