Thatís good. Could mean better chow for the troops.

We ALWAYS got better food when the brass visited.

As to the politics...the Taliban doesnít give a crap about a cease fire, unless itís accompanied by troops withdrawing.

And thatís not a bad thing either, for us. Itís bad for the people there.

This trip is to his credit. To be honest, based on his travel patterns of the last few years, this really surprised me and in a pleasant way.

I've got my cynicism in a firm stranglehold for the time being.

Peace in Afghanistan is about as likely as a nuke free North Korea. Not improbable but unlikely within most of our lifetimes on here.

Normally,I would think when either side visits the troops,its a P.R./photo op.

I really "want" to think Trump is sincere.

Firing the Secretary of the Navy over a SEAL keeping his Trident pin seems pretty sincere to me.

Jessica Kwong, the Newsweek "reporter" who wrote the fake news article about Trump's Thanksgiving, has been fired.

Good riddance to the lying liberal pile of crap!

https://www.foxnews.com/media/newswe...ng-trump-plans

She also has written other bull**** negative stories in the past.
This piece is about a boat in the background of a photo flying old dixie.
Racist slant.
