2. The US will only have two allies left, Saudi Arabia and israel. The US is becoming the

"Sanctioning bully" and laughing stock of the world.

Best thing that's happened to the other countries, now understanding the US is not a stable partner in any arena and to adjust accordingly, which they are doing.

7. The US is committing suicide because of their fevered, unreasonable support of another

country. It is getting to hysterical levels.

5. I honestly don't care who does it.

I am a conservative by ideology, but we and libs both have this habit. Sticking our noses in problems we don't need. How about we take care ourselves first?

8. I just hope that the US one day understands that even the Conservatives who are usually considered

the more hawkish party have battle fatigue.
I don't care who we are fighting for, Jews, Arabs, Christians, Muslims. I am not going to go or send my kid to die for them.
