Oh, I don't know... not treating the head of a terrorist organization with just a *touch* of humanity might actually give those who were on the fence about following him less reasons to unite against the west.


But certainly degrading a Muslim man, regardless of his status, sure as hell would unite many no matter WHAT they might think.


Really, if you want to comment on the political BS of the area, try to understand some of it at least. Otherwise you're just part of the problem.

The first 4 months? That was a couple years ago. What's he winning now? More laughs?
EG: now he wants a "fireside chat" so he can read his "transcript". But apparently several people have said there's stuff missing which indicates his "...... exact word-for-word transcript of the conversation, taken by very talented stenographers" has been edited. If he is lying, he isn't fit for the office, if he's forgotten, he's still not fit for office. lmao

'BEWARE VENGEANCE': Islamic State vows revenge against U.S. for Baghdadi killing
Reuters

CAIRO — Islamic State confirmed on Thursday that its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed in a weekend raid by U.S. special forces in northwestern Syria, and vowed revenge against the United States.
The Iraqi rose from obscurity to lead the ultra-hardline group and declare himself “caliph” of all Muslims, holding sway over huge areas of Iraq and Syria from 2014-2017 before Islamic State’s control disintegrated under U.S.-led attacks.
The group confirmed his death in an audiotape posted online and said a successor, identified as Abu Ibrahim al-Hashemi al-Quraishi, had been appointed.
Aymenn al-Tamimi, a researcher at Swansea University focusing on Islamic State, said the name was unknown but could refer to a leading figure in Islamic State called Hajj Abdullah, whom the U.S. State Department had identified as a possible successor.
A former senior figure in the rival Islamist group al Qaeda in Iraq, he is also known as Mohamed Said Abdelrahman al-Mawla.
Analysts have also named the Saudi Abu Abdullah al-Jizrawi and Abdullah Qaradash, an Iraqi and one of Baghdadi’s right-hand men, as potential successors along with the Tunisian Abu Othman al-Tunisi.
An Islamic State spokesman warned the United States in the tape to “beware vengeance (against) their nation and their brethren of infidels and apostates.”
Baghdadi’s death is likely to cause Islamic State to splinter, leaving whoever emerges as its new leader with the task of pulling the group back together as a fighting force, according to analysts.
Whether the loss of its leader will in itself affect the group’s capabilities is open to debate. Even if it does face difficulties in the transition, the underlying ideology and the sectarian hatred it promoted remain attractive to many, analysts say.
GUERRILLA ATTACKS
Islamic State also confirmed the death of its spokesman Abu al-Hassan al-Muhajir.
“I think they’re trying to send the message, ‘Don’t think you’ve destroyed the project just because you’ve killed Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and the official spokesman’,” Tamimi said.
Islamic State has resorted to guerrilla attacks since losing its last significant piece of territory in Syria in March.
Since Baghdadi’s death, it has posted dozens of claims of responsibility for attacks in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and elsewhere.
H.A. Hellyer, senior associate fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International peace, said the group, also known as ISIS or Daesh, would have picked the name Quraishi for Baghdadi’s successor to suggest descent from the Prophet Mohammad’s tribe.
Baghdadi’s “caliph” name also ended in Quraishi.

“ISIS is trying to show its followers it respects that tradition, but Muslims more widely aren’t likely to care very much, considering the wide violations of Islamic law that ISIS has clearly engaged with,” Hellyer added.
In his last purported audio message, released in September, Baghdadi said operations were taking place daily and urged freedom for women jailed in Iraq and Syria on suspicion of links to the group.
He also said the United States and its proxies had been defeated in Iraq and Afghanistan, and that the United States had been “dragged” into Mali and Niger.

The other 2 articles were his accomplishments up to March 2019

The rough transcript is still more reliable than a paper written in conjunction with Shifty Schiff's office of 2nd and 3rd hand information overheard in the work place.

Stock markets rise and fall, big deal. They've also crashed during Trump's stint in the White House.
2018:
"All of the so-called “U.S. equity style boxes” made popular by Morningstar all fell by between 15-19%. Did I mention this happened in only 3 weeks?
There was some mild relief if you invested in lower-volatility stocks, as those declines were closer to 10% than 15% or 20%. And non-U.S. stocks lost less than those in the U.S, but those regions were already down a ton before December 3 anyway.
The impact was so severe across the board, it wiped out all, nearly all, or more than all the gains of the prior year and a half in all 9 of the stock market segments shown above. Here are returns of those market segments from June 30, 2017 through that December 24, 2018." - https://www.forbes.com/sites/robisbi.../#5add37f47ad5

A brainless blunder could see that coming. Maybe a couple planes will hit Miralago when His Royal Orangeness is there and do some good for the planet and our species. lol

Trump's cronies edited the "rough transcript". The original is tucked away in an encoded server someplace only Trumplicans can get it and I bet they aren't willing to share.

It's not expertise, it's common sense and a bit of knowledge about the people in the area that I got from, you know, wanting to know about the people of the area?


Which doesn't make the observation any less valid.

Well there you go, maybe Trump is bucking the trend to get away from the failing way to deal with extremists?
