    All bets are off if this is the case. The mortal sin is this.

    Elliot Abrams is an international terrorist by any definition. He belongs in the Hague with Henry Kissinger and others. Abrams served in the Reagan Administration as Assistant Secretary of State for Human Rights and Humanitarian Affairs from 1981-1985.

    Abrams not only covered up but aided and abetted massive state terror and genocide in Central America.

    This is Abrams essentially calling a Salvadoran refugee a liar for saying that her fellow church workers were being murdered by U.S.-run security forces because they were organizing Bible study and self-help groups in poor communities.

    .

    I'm calling BS on this. NFW Trump would bring this NeoCon Crook in and place him under Tillerson.
    Or anyone.

    The Abrams tank was named for General Creighton Williams Abrams.

    God, I hope you actually knew that and weren't being sarcastic.

    Anyway, Abrams was also convicted for his role in Iran-Contra....

    Unfortunately, given the caliber of other clowns that Trump has appointed, this is almost the adult in the room.

    So you just throw something out there that is off topic?

    Okay- here's the reason why it's a bad idea, let's discuss those... try to focus, okay, buddy.

    1) Abrams was involved in Iran-Contra, the horrible idea to sell weapons to terrorist Iran and use the money to fund narco-terrorists in Central-America.

    2) Abrams was involved in the disastrously bad decision to invade Iraq.


    These two things BY THEMSELVES, should be deal-killers, even by the standards Trump has laid down as to what he thinks is wrong with our foreign policy.

    Oh give me a break ! What a naive ignorant or purposely deceptive post! The Abrams tank was named after Gen Creighton Abrams who was an important general during the muddle years of the Vietnam war.

    No, it was named after Norm Abrams, New England's favorite carpenter.

    OK he's a Republican so he must be evil. He could have been a close personal friend of Ollie North. I get it now.
