President Trump and War

Written by

Is Donald Trump becoming yet another war President, just like his predecessor (President Obama and War)? No, not yet! But it looks increasingly likely, which would be yet another disaster not only for America, but also for the world. Therefore, everything possible must be done to prevent it from happening, especially when he appears totally clueless on foreign policy (Trump says he's getting 'A's and A-pluses' on foreign policy).

1. Actions speak louder than words

Below are five news stories, showing what President Trump has done in support of the MIC (Military-Industrial Complex):

  1. Trump Has Appointed More Generals in His Cabinet Than Any President Since World War II.
  2. Trump Orders New Military Strategy to Defeat ISIS, apparently without knowing there is no military solution to the ISIS problem!
  3. Raid in Yemen: Risky From the Start and Costly in the End.
  4. Trump official: Syria bombing was 'after-dinner entertainment' at Mar-a-Lago.
  5. Trump proposes $54 billion defense spending hike.

2. What does the MIC want?

More troops and more wars! Five examples:

  1. Pentagon wants more troops, bombs for Afghanistan to counter Taliban. US considering sending up to 3,000 additional troops to Afghanistan.
  2. U.S. sending dozens more troops to Somalia.
  3. Trump to send arms to Kurdish YPG in Syria.
  4. Why U.S. Troops May Fight Alongside al-Qaeda in Yemen.
  5. U.S. Allies in Asia Are Anxious, Pacific Fleet Commander Says.

3. Can we prevail?

No! No one ever "wins" a war - One side just loses less. Three informative readings:

  1. The Middle East without America?
  2. America's War in Afghanistan.
  3. 9/11: Remembered in America, But Not Understood!

Bottom line: The War on Terror is perpetual, without any prospect for us to win! For more, watch the video in the end.

4. Who is Donald Trump, anyway?

Candidate Trump showed some promise to fix the MIC (Fixing the Military-Industrial Complex!). But President Trump is proving to be no different from his predecessors, thanks to the trap of "getting re-elected ad nauseam". For more, read: Three Worst American Terrorists: JFK, GWB, and BHO!

5. What does America need?

Peace and prosperity!

6. Closing

America needs peace and prosperity, for which we need a peaceful transformational leader like China's Deng (Donald Trump vs. Deng Xiaoping)! Will President Trump be that leader (Donald Trump 2.0)? Increasingly unlikely! For more, read: Grading President Trump’s First 100 Days: B!
