Move Over, Doug Feith

He has arguably been displaced from his title of "The Dumbest Motherfucker on the Planet."

Meet the new title-holder, who said:
"I want to see peace with Israel and the Palestinians. There is no reason there's not peace between Israel and the Palestinians - none whatsoever."
Donald J. Trump.

I gather that the prospect of peace in the Middle East is one of those "hard things" that he hasn't had anybody tell him is going to be really difficult to do. Maybe he needs a ten-minute lecture from some foreign leader.

Some times, it seems as though Trump is like a baboon who has been given a set of wrenches and a tractor. Nobody should be surprised when he can't fix it. He doesn't even know what he's looking at or have any understanding of the scope of the problem. Or that there even is a problem.

We are so boned!

Hasn't he farmed that one out to Jared? Also, that's some hubris coming from a guy who can't get peace between Priebus, Bannon, and Kushner.

So much like Carter was, only not as toothy a smile....

You've got Trolls here too, aeh, that are dumber than rocks and no doubt not nearly as good looking. Sad, I was looking for that one blog...

If there is one thing the 'bible', koran and torah are good for, it's as documentation of one group of people's six perhaps ten thousand year history of refusing to get along with each other. There is something to be said for turning it all to glass, From Libya to Pakistan - aside from having all the oil.

Crimus, B, way to distort the historical record. I don;t recall Cater thinking that arranging a peace deal would be so easy that he could assign the task as a collateral job to one of his relatives with no experience in diplomacy. Hell, his mother had more experience at foreign affairs than either The Donald or Jared the Silent.

What Carter did was end the state of war between Egypt and Israel. A peace deal was signed and the Sinai Peninsula was demilitarized. That deal has held for nearly 40 years and counting. That worked out well enough that Israel and Jordan signed a similar peace treaty fifteen years later.

Comparing Trump to Carter should earn President Carter the right to punch in the shnoz anyone who says as much. but he's both old and a peaceful gent, so I doubt he'd take advantage of that.

Keaaukane said...

As usual, B, your comment is both silly and wrong.
1. Carter understood the issues involved, and managed to negotiate a peace treaty between Israel and Egypt that made a further large scale attack on Israel impossible. (we will leave the role of Israel's nuclear arsenal in this discussion for another day).
2. Carter tried to improve the situation with the Palestinians, and was working towards what became known as the two state solution (We will leave the role of Likud's scuppering of that for another day)
3. Any person who thinks being President is going to be less work than a part time TV host is pretty fucking dumb.

4) You forgot Carter lusted in his heart...Donnie's lust is lower.

CenterPuke88 said...

Yikes, my classical education is seeping back...Donnie is past hubris, onto to ate...nemesis next...

Stewart Dean said...

Yeah, CenterPuke88....but when Nemesis hits, could she please leave the rest of us out of the collateral damage? Maybe confine the nuclear war to the President* and the far right wing of the GOP? That would leave maybe 12 moderates to reconstitute the party of Lincoln and Eisenhower.
And the Red States that are red because of all the self-inflicted wounds and effusion of blood....
"Experience is a dear school, but fools will learn at no other"

B said...

Y'All misunderstand me....Everyone said Carter was crazy. He too asked why there couldn't be peace between Israel and Egypt. Then he (and his team) just went ahead and made it happen. No one expected him to succeed.

I'm not 'sposed to mention TDS, but really, y'all need to get over your unreasoning hatred and get a grip. Criticize, yes, be logical in it. At this point, you credibility about anything Trump is beginning to fade because you have such a knee jerk reactive hatred for him.

Make no mistake, I doubt the Palestinians will keep their end of a bargain, even if Trump could make one happen....

Ten Bears said...

You doubt the Palestinians will keep their end of the bargain when we have a sixty year history of Israel not keeping it's end of the bargain?

Israel is an utterly foreign occupier perpetrating an American Taxpayer conceived, financed and morally sanctioned genocide upon the indigenous population of Palistine. Trump's "peace plan" would be to allow Israel to complete the genocide.

B: Perhaps there wouldn't be such negative reactions to him if he didn't say things like this post pointed out or things like:

"Look, if you hurt your knee, honestly, I'd rather have the federal government focus on North Korea, focus on other things than your knee or than your back, as important as your back is," Trump declared. "I would much rather see the federal government focused on other things."

...which display such ignorance as to demand mockery.
