Because economics cannot cannot continue until the presidential election end of 2020
Trump desperately needs his war to get public support then.

There are three candidates as of now: Venezuela, North Korea and Iran
Oddly every one of them behaves as if they want to win this race to war!

But there is another player calculating the seemingly unpreventable war. We know already China doesn't want any disturbance in their neighbourhood. Watching them to engage in Venezuela, it is clear they prefer the U.S. been occupied with war in the distance there.

Just saying ... when watching Boltons call for war in Venezuela.
PS: In chess you mostly loose a second chance when playing out your attack. How bold is Bolton?

Please don't spam the forum with new threads for every random thought. That's a blog. Thanks.

He clearly recommended you create your own blog elsewhere.

That depends on how we go about things. Drew Karpyshyn is a genius, by the way, for how he conveys things in his writing.

Of course, this depends on things being managed correctly.

Thank you for asking. I wasn't suggesting this thread ought to have been elsewhere. My concern, given the common topic of your posts was that you didn't start creating new threads for everything about the common theme. Particularly so as your two recent threads were only a few hours apart.

That said, the other thread could have been posted to the "Mueller" thread or the "Trump" thread. This thread could also have been posted to the "Trump" thread, or even a North Korea thread from 2018 (though certainly not necessary).

But what I really wanted was that you consider if a new thread was really needed to continue the discussion next time you thought about creating a (Trump) thread.

Thank you.

For sure I first think about continuing a popular thread before creating a new. Since this forum should not be centered around U.S. domestic issues as it momentarily is, I decided to begin new threads for better framing them globaly.
I just learned my other thread was answered in opposing mood although the opposing message duplicates my original message ... this maybe caused by my bad english language skills ...

@pjp
if not starting every day two new threads - these certainly go down the listing quickly when of no interest. And I promise not to spam. But I may loose interest at all if answered like Twitter emotioned dumps.
