Israel and UAE Normalize Relations

Wow. Great news! Hopefully we are on a path to stabilizing the region.

Israel and the United Arab Emirates have agreed to normalise relations, US President Donald Trump has announced.

A joint statement by Mr Trump, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed Al Nahyan said they hoped the “historic breakthrough will advance peace in the Middle East”.

As a result, they added, Israel would suspend its plans to annex large parts of the occupied West Bank.

Until now Israel has had no diplomatic relations with Gulf Arab countries

    …and all American liberals just scorn poor Ben.

    You get peace through strength, not liberal weakness!

  2. Le Roi du Nord

    “You get peace through strength”

    Explain that to trump as he works to dismantle NATO.

  3. Kevin Scheunemann

    NATO has been TAKEN OVER BY SOCIALIST ILK…the leftist cold war enemy we swore to protect against.

  4. Le Roi du Nord


    Could you provide some proof?  Seems like a pretty outrageous claim to make without any documentation.  Thanks

  5. Mar

    The article was interesting Le Roi, but do you seriously think Russia would invade Germany?
    And even if they did, do you think the tiny force we have there would be able to fend them off?
    Finally, if Germany doesn’t pony up the money, why should we even be there?

  6. Le Roi du Nord


    Your disagreement is with k on this one (see above).

  7. Jason

    >Explain that to trump as he works to dismantle NATO

    Since you’re asking others for proof here in this very discussion, can you also provide proof of your statement?



  8. Le Roi du Nord

    Geez j, I thought you were a reader.  Guess not.

  9. Jason

    Gee Leroy, I thought you always said that words have meanings.  You said “Trump as he works to dismantle NATO”.  Your article does not mention that Trump is dismantling anything.   In fact, I just did a search, and the word dismantle or dismantling does not appear at all.


    And you proclaim yourself as a smart man, Geez.

  10. Le Roi du Nord

    Sorry j, but if you can’t figure it out I can’t help you from my location.  But I’m sure if you purchase the new, unabridged “k’s Flexible Dictionary” ($112 +T&S) you will be able to decipher the article(s).  You might even learn something new, or at least something from outside your narrow worldview.

  11. Jason

    >Sorry j, but if you can’t figure it out…

    Full of shit, just like I predicted.  It’s so easy to read you Leroy.  You make an outrageous claim, can’t back it up, all the while demanding proof from others.  Three articles here, not one uses the word “dismantle”.


    Why not, just for shits and giggles, instead of doing some hard work like sourcing your opinion… explain to the kids here just how Trump could even “dismantle NATO”.   Share with us all just what NATO is, and just how one person could dismantle it.  We’ll wait for a while, and watch you come back with another of your lame excuses.   What ever happened to all the self affirmations you gave in the past about being man enough to admit when you’re wrong?  That was also bullshit?

  12. jjf

    Le Roi, it’s just a mystery as to what Trump is trying to do, isn’t it?  Who could know?

  13. dad29

    IN the dictionary, under “obtuse”, is the picture of LeeeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy.  The second definition is the picture of Jiffy.

    Trump simply told the leakers in NATO to pay up.  They cry loudly, just like all the other little girls–and some people believe their bullshit.

    So you can cross-reference LeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy under “gullible.”

  14. Jason

    Jiffy, why are you even commenting?  I know you don’t have any NATO history books on your shelf.  You’re wasting your time little one.

  15. Jason

    Still not seeing the word “Dismatle” in that link Leroy.  Do you need more time?  Did you not really mean it every time you berate and belittle Kevin with the “Words have meaning”.   Do you have a Leroy Dictionary that we need to start looking at?


    Remember, here’s you exact words.. with the emphasis so you don’t try to wiggle too hard.

    “Explain that to trump as he works to dismantle NATO


  16. dad29

    Maybe LeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy is one of those warmongers who thought it would be a GREAT idea to incorporate Belarus, Ukraine, Lithuania, and a couple of other random East Euro countries into NATO so that Russia would be PO’d and create problems.

    After all, war is the health of the State, and LeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy is–if nothing else–a Statist.  Obtuse, but Statist.

  17. Jason

    Whats really funny dad29, is that Trump has the left foaming so hard at the mouth that Liberals like jjf are here talking about Trump pulling some support out of NATO as if that’s a terrible thing to do. I can’t believe he is here almost advocating for more US Dollars to be spent for Defense budgets instead of more free homeless, sick, trangender, multiracial birth control measures.

  18. Merlin

    The untethered liberal mind does try to wander in all directions at once.

  19. Mar

    “Your disagreement is with k on this one (see above).”
    You do realize Moron Le Roi, I was responding to the link you provided.
    Are you sure you are not missing a chromosome?

  20. jjf

     just like all the other little girls

    And there’s Dad29’s sexism!

  21. Jason

    When you can’t argue the facts and logic, time to accuse (racism, sexism, classism) instead. Poor little liberal.

  22. Jason

    Hey Leroy, we are all still waiting. I know you think you can slink away with your parting shot of “I’m not doing your work for you, figure it out”. You can indeed do that, but it makes you look worse than ever.

    So why don’t you take a minute to tell us exactly how “Trump is dismantling NATO”. Maybe if you started with an explanation of what NATO is, you might become self-aware enough to know that your statement was childish and stupid. Most stupid statment from you so far this year.

  23. Mar

    jjf is offended because he is a little girl.
    Maybe someday he will become a big girl.

  24. jjf

    Such a lack of self-awareness.  Because calling someone a little girl is arguing with facts and logic?

  25. Jason

    Well, if you really want Facts and Logic, calling someone a little girl is not sexist… but you don’t understand that.

  26. dad29

    multiracial birth control measures

    You mean abortion, with the preference being “eugenic” abortion.

  27. jjf

    As compared to saying that those with pre-existing conditions were going to die anyway.

  28. Mar

    “As compared to saying that those with pre-existing conditions were going to die anyway.”
    You mean only people with pre-existing conditions die?

  29. jjf

    Mar, your argument appears to be with Dad29.

  30. Jason

    Oh the irony Leroy…

    First sentence…

    >”There is growing concern that US President Donald Trump wants to dismantle NATO, but realistically that’s not what he wants


    So again, can you explain to us exactly how one person can dismantle NATO.

    >I had business to attend to

    Friday is trash collection day in your area?  Do you have a tough go of it with all the shit people throw away now since Covifd?

  31. Le Roi du Nord

    Sorry j, recycling day is Saturday, and I take ours to a county/town recycling (single stream) center.  Are you one of those that throws your garbage in the woods for others to pick up?

  32. Jason

    Focus Leroy…   we are all tired of your weasling.  After all you’re the one monotonically telling people that words have meaning and you can’t just say whatever you want.

    >Explain that to trump as he works to dismantle NATO.

    Explain to us how Trump is going to dismantle NATO.  And as you demanded  from others, just 20 minutes after posting the above quote…

    Could you provide some proof?  Seems like a pretty outrageous claim to make without any documentation.  Thanks

    So far you’re failing terribly.

  33. Le Roi du Nord

    And us mature folks are all tired of the general assholedness that you name calling third graders bring to the table.  Act like a reasonable adult and you get treated like one.  Or stay the course and get what you deserve.  To quote your fearless leader, “It is what it is”.

  34. Jason

    More fail, you’re really disappointing us today Leroy. I guess words don’t have meaning?

  35. Jason

    Hey Leroy, I suggest you go back through this thread and see exactly where the assholedness started. Here’s another quote.

    >Geez j, I thought you were a reader. Guess not.

    So fuck you little man you can’t handle it, don’t start it.

  36. Mar

    “Act like a reasonable adult and you get treated like one.”
    So stop your lying.

  37. Jason

    What a surprise, big high and mighty Leroy can’t even defend his statement.  What a shit bag.

    “Explain that to trump as he works to dismantle NATO.”
