Trump has called many a county's Leader's bluff, and had fun with Twitter.

But has he now made a mistake in threatening Turkey along with pulling out of Syria?

He has unmatched wisdom though remember. True enough, in so far as the only thing close to matching Trumps wisdom is a geranium.

If the US is going to start deciding who it supports on the basis of who took part in the Normandy landings 75 years ago, then there's going to be a lot of countries hung out to dry.

My geraniums are fuming at that comment and are threatening on going round your house to sort you out.

In reply to The Lemming:no.  You're mistaken in thinking he gives a damn about former allies

I'm mistaken?

It's probably just a generalisation as the topic unfolds. Trump only cares about himself and those that can help him personally and financially.

Then I apologise unreservedly and without caveat to your Geraniums, their descendents in perpetuity,  and indeed all Perigoniums.

Quite, he will make any excuse that comes into his head in that moment.

Reminds of my children, though even the youngest grew out of that a few years ago, he' s now 8.

I misjudged turkey at Christmas. 

I was so full. 

And the curry lasted till February.
