Trump warned us, but most people weren't listening. Like Bush II, he wants to be a "war" president. This often happens to people who have never put on a uniform or have found a method, while in uniform, to remove themselves from danger.
Trump's tiny little fingers have waggled their way into setting us up for another war or multiple wars. He's proposing a budget which will give a 50 billion plus addition to an already bloated military budget! (At the expense of hundreds of programs which benefit our country and its people.) Notice also how we are suddenly being warned about countries dangerous to our health.
Iran is on the list, but Iran's been there for a long time. Iraq is back. Unfinished business is what it's being called. We're still in Afghanistan and it doesn't look like we'll pull of out of that country anytime soon as the Taliban is surging once again.
Now we've got boots on the ground in Syria with the promise of more direct intervention in the near future. Our war mongers never learn a thing. And the war mongering Trumpites chant in unison, "We must defeat ISIS!"
Rex Tillerson, the slimey former CEO of Exxon and currently our Secretary of State, is threatening a pre-emptive strike against North Korea. Does he not know that the man leading North Korean is an genuine psychopath who will send missiles into American cities?
Tillerson must be crazy himself.
Or a war monger!
And why is it that Saudi Arabia always gets a pass even though it is one of the most undemocratic societies in the world and it was mostly Saudis that were responsible for 9/11? The answer is oil, but you knew that.
And notice how friendly our leadership is with Russia and Putin. What's that all about? Are we going to fight Russia's wars? Putin headed up the deadly KGB for Christ's sake and is one of the most frightening humans on earth!
One thing you can be sure of: the ones crying for war are NOT the ones who will be fighting. It will be mostly the minorities, the poor, and those who have nobody looking out for their interests.
The really fearsome thing is that el prezidente does not seem to comprehend nuclear war. As he builds up our arsenals (after years of difficult negotiations to reduce nuclear weapons) he waggles his tiny little fingers as he flirts with the notion that there is such as thing as a "small" nuclear conflict and/or we can survive a nuclear war. He is an idiot. Nuclear war means total destruction for everything on the planet.
Will our representatives do their job and remove this moron from office before it's too late?
