WASHINGTON: Large military drills between the United States and South Korea have been "suspended indefinitely," a senior US official told AFP on Thursday.

"Major military exercises have been suspended indefinitely on the Korean peninsula," the official said, two days after President Donald Trump said the US would halt joint military exercises with its security ally Seoul.

1. We are in a state of unilateral disarmament, inviting adversaries to take what they want

Our government in a state of somnambulance, our citizenry dulled by Tweets and television, we cannot fight anything anymore

21. Yes Trump surrendered to North Korea a few days ago

And to Russia years ago.

Now he is taking the USA down to the dust for his master Putin.

11. If it will get him the Nobel Peace Prize, Trump will yank the troops out of South Korea in...



and he'll do it unilaterally, without getting any concessions from the North Koreans, unless you count IQ45 getting first dibs on those beautiful beaches under the free-fire zone.

Meanwhile, his staff is working overtime trying to figure out how to get President Obama's Peace Prize revoked. Their efforts will join the clarion call that started even before Trump took office.

14. I don't think you can get a Nobel when you set up concentration camps for immigrant children.

That's kind of a blanket disqualifier.

And the dishonest media. And, what kids?

19. Liberals are a tough crowd. They care about words, and truth, and principles.

It's really easy. If the crowd loves him, it was all him. He alone can fix it. All the broken parts happened before or were done by someone else.

Once liberals understand that, they'll be happy like all these people cheering for him at his rallies and praising him at cabinet meetings.

in case it's needed

Another thought: I can't imagine having his picture at my workplace. How demoralizing.

5. Do our troops come home or do they sit there and do nothing?

Military readiness saves lives. If we are called into action without proper training, people die. Please explain how this is a good thing Mike Pompeo, graduate of West Point. You are a black mark on this great institution.

12. Trump says it's too expensive to hold military exercises (which he calls "war games").

So, his idea of having "the biggest military the world has ever seen" means lots of hardware but having no one with the training on how to use it. Think of all the money we'd save by just parking the airplanes, ships and tanks and never using them--a process called "mothballing."





Now, if we can just declare the military branches to be "right to work" states, we can cut the costs even further...

24. If he get his "I'm so great" ego parade this year he'll want one next year,

only bigger. He's probably already got someone on the WH staff trying to figure out how to get the aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan into the Reflecting Pool.

How many think that if he gets the Nobel Peace Prize (ycch!) his next goal will be to have built the biggest, most powerful aircraft ever in the history of the world and named -- wait for it -- the "Donald J. Trump"?
