The Taliban is still fighting in Afghanistan, North Korea still has nuclear weapons (and is launching missiles willy nilly), China has not reached a trade agreement with the US, and Iran is enriching uranium.  

Lots of big talk from Trump and his supporters about "winning."  But where are the results? 

You seem to have a very short memory. Things are much cooler than they were under Obummer.

No, nothing's changed much since Obama.  Under Obama there was fighting in Afghanistan, and North Korea had nuclear weapons, just like under Trump.  The debt and the deficit continue to grow (under both presidents).  The rich continue to get richer, and everyone else muddles through.   What's changed?

What rules has the US broken? You should enjoy making that list!

Is the US presence in Syria legal, no its not. its a direct contravention of the UN charter. An aggression no less against a country that never in history raised as finger to the US. It was and is 1 of the famous 7 wars in 20 years against 7 MS countries deemed in some way a threat to US interests, Iran is next.

Was the US war in Iraq legal, no. It was direct contravention of the UN charter based on fabricated lies about WMD. Those lies were fabricated by the US to generate reason for war. The US had set its course in 2001, and nothing including full inspection of the so called sources of WMD would stop you all on the race to exterminate more than half a million Iraqi civilians.

The US intervention in Libya, Nicaragua, I could go on but what's the point in talking to people who feel above the law on every level.

If you think US policing is bad, wait until you see the alternatives. 

The alternative was loudly on display in Beirut, Lebanon some years back.  Everyone was shooting at everyone else, and blowing up the entire town, reducing a lovely city to total rubble.  

That is what happens when the US leaves and there is no policeman.

No, I live in America.  Xi is pretty shitty, but compared to past Chinese rulers he's fine.  I mean, he's better than Mao, significantly worse than Deng Xiao Ping, worse than Hu Jin Tao, and better than Jiang Ze Ming.

The only Chinese leader besides Deng that I'm fond of is Hu Jin Tao and that's because he gave up power voluntarily.  

I like talking shit about Trump because he deserves it.  But that doesn't mean I like Chinese leaders.

Japan should protect itself against the threat of China.  When the Vietnamese sent their dinky patrol boats to confront the giant Chinese navy, I was like "Go Vietnam" and "Yup, standard Viet behavior vs Chinese aggression."  The Vietnamese have been colonized before by China so they know their history.  

I think China's expansion into SE Asia seas is shi-.  Don't like it at all.  

Look, just because I think Trump is shi- doesn't mean I don't think China can be shi-, too.  As I said before, I'm not on anyone's side except my own (and possibly the Vietnamese).

I disagree with your assessment of Trump, but only because I think Trump has strategic reasons for being an ass.  I.e. you make a fair point about his behavior deserving ridicule, but I think that's intentional on his part.
