Two Poker Player - both "all-in" a high stakes game

Two Poker Players - both are Losers

Showing they are” all–in”

Today, America is at war – we are at war in Iraq, Syria and likely in many other places not yet declared officially by our President or our Congress. It seems to be a pattern of inexcusable misconduct by the administration and Congress. We have allies who are reluctant to participate to the fullest and we have Russia joining the cause to satisfy their own needs and desires on NATO’s side of the world.

Why are we at war? There is no good reason for our men and women to be fighting on foreign soil for foreign oil. That needs to be addressed and a withdrawal should be planned. We have ISIS as an enemy and Israel as an ally – Somehow, I think the two are related in some ways but it’s hard to tell because everybody is lying about the war and how it started and how it is funded.

Which brings us home – where the tension between Muslims and Christians have elevated to epic proportions. Soon, we will be fighting a Christian Crusade on two sides of the world with one inside our country. What caused this mess – our government and their corruptive deals with corporate greed and world lust for power. Maybe if climate change was real, we would have a reason to dispute but not be at war.

President Obama has turned his back on the USA – the USA has turned its back on good old values and the country is now deeply divided. There are choices but nobody wants to make them including the next president elect who will be selected, not elected. The sounds of silence are deafening. The writings are on the walls.

Iraq will never be united as long as the Kurds fight the Sunni – the Sunni will never be in control as long as they can’t compromise and stop fighting century old enemies that include those financing their enemies.

Saudi Arabia is raping the region with their cruel and brutal Sharia laws and other countries shall soon fall. Syria will fall but Iran will be there to catch it. ISIS will be there to take the spoils and make a deal with Russia and Iran while Turkey remains rich, as it keeps dealing oil under the table to keep their politicians in power and riches.

At home, we have a poker game between democrats and republicans. None appear to be winning and all appear to be losing the confidence of the American people. The deck is stacked. One side wants more boots on the ground in Syria and the other opposes it. Mixed motives for all the wrong reasons.

Obama is bluffing and he is stalling to end the poker game – Trump has shown he is no deal maker and a heartbreaker as he destroys basic human values with his words and promises deeds unlike anyone before. High stakes with nothing to win and standing to lose everything we have today.

All are denigrating the office of the President, including the sitting president. America has no Commander in Chief and the world is watching. So while the President does nothing to win this war, and Trump does everything to destroy our abilities to get along with each other, the world keeps turning waiting for the USA to fall and go broke in this high stakes poker game in DC.
