    If you don't think VZ is important you should research that a bit rather than posting 100 pics.

    Here I will give you a hint to start you off.

    Domino theory.

    And I blame not only Obama but Bush, Clinton, Reagan.....going back to FDR for the current problems.

    Though not so much Reagan, he at least tried.
    I did not say it was. Did you have a point or simply wish to flee from your previous words?

    Clearly you attacked the former president as doing nothing. Clearly you were demonstrated to be wrong on the matter.

    Read the words I wrote, like a grown up, instead of just looking at the pictures, like a child.

    I posited a better solution in there.

    I never said he did nothing.

    I was explaining he didn't do enough or the wrong things to make the changes needed.

    The fact is that Obama's approach didn't work, its time to do something else and Trump is doing that by taking a different, hardline stance.

    Since when does Trump give a shit about human rights abuses?! This is crazy talk. Someone needs to do something before he does something really stupid. This is nothing more than another attempted distraction. Someone who is in a position to do so must stop the madness. It's time. This needs to end. Republicans need to step forward and make it known that they will NOT continue to tolerate his insanity. It is their patriotic duty.

    I think South Africa should control the crime in their own country. It is not safe at all. If they have well trained military it might be a good idea to clap down on the crime happening in South Africa.

    Crime is a prominent issue in South Africa. The country has a very high rate of murders, assaults, rapes (adult, child, elderly and infant), and other crimes compared to most countries. Most emigrants from South Africa state that crime was a big factor in their decision to leave.[1] The South African Police Service is responsible for managing 1,115 police stations across South Africa.[2]

    They should contribute more to peacekeeping and security on their continent.

    And they have done things, in CAR, though they withdrew after some of their soldiers were killed there, a decision that was popular at home, but received some criticism later: South Africa in the CAR: Was pulling the troops a catastrophic mistake?

    But, they also deployed men to the Congo, for instance:

    They can do more though.

    Point is, US shouldn't be responsible for everything. Why should US military handle Venezuela, if, God forbid, it comes to that?

    And what about Brazil? Argentina? South American issues should be sorted out BY South Americans IMHO
    OK. So what is Russia doing in Syria? Policing the world?

    Maybe Middle Eastern issues should be sorted out by Middle Easterners.......
