22. Considering that Russia would have to be on board of UN action

Do you really think this would be good for the world?

Obviously Trump is an ass, but even he looks like a kind-of OK guy compared to the tin-pot dictators that run most every country outside Western Europe, the Anglosphere, and Japan.

That asshat in the Philippines (? country in Asia) that's killing drug dealers/users? I believe he called Obama a "monkey."

Various actual cannibals in Africa? Eating dissenters has a chilling effect on political discourse.

Saudi Arabia where gays are murdered? And women's privates are mutilated so she cannot orgasm?

China that has slave labor and Internet black out?

Iran that prays for genocide of Jewish people and everyone in the USA? Whose leaders are in a weirdo cult that actually wants Armageddon?

Ergoden in Turkey who wants to be the next Sultan (or "Grand Poo-Ba or whatever it's called to be the boss of all Islamdom).

Seriously, grow up. Trump is a bad guy, but on the scale of bad guys in the world he's a 6.5 and there are plenty of 10s.
