In Topics:   Trump  The Neocons
Is this guy Trump going to dash our hopes into the ground? The latest wrong move by him is the lobbing of cruise missiles into Syria, of which the news could be found everywhere over the last few days. PeakStupidity's and, we reckon, most patriotic Americans, disappointment about this is not the stupid neocon move itself, but whether this means that the man is not, or never was, or is no longer, good for his word.
The continuation of the endless warfare state (only seen to this degree in the country of Oceana in the book 1984) goes against what Trump rightfully argued in his campaign for president. True, he was never going to be a Ron Paul. He came across as being against the US being the "world' policeman" more for practical than libertarian reasons. It was also not the biggest issue, which was out-of-control immigration. That's what got him elected. Mr. Trump, though he never had the grasp of history and politics like a Pat Buchanan, seemed to learn from the right people and lean the right way once he did learn about an issue.
The immigration thing is a good example. Trump not only picked Jeff Sessions of Alabama for Attorney General, but the had sought him out for good advice on the immigration issue way back during the primaries. Another example is the 2nd Amendment right to bear arms. This is a guy from NY City, remember; his world was one in which his bodyguards could carry arms, he and the rich and famous and well-connected were the only men who could seriously consider getting "approved" to legally carry a gun in NYC, yet he ended up thinking and talking the right stuff during the election for a very early endorsement by the NRA (well, it was against the HIldabeast, so you know ...)
The Syria thing is worrying for a number of reasons, each of which will be short a separate post to come:
1) Why is Trump being a neocon warmonger, when it is against what he seemed to believe before? Is it that he is under control of the "deep state"? How? If not that, is he running America's foreign policy to please his daughter and son-in-law?
2) If Trump has flaked out on his foreign policy positions, what else will he flake out on? The immigration issue has more of the rest of the US gov't involved, but he could have gotten a lot more done already.
3) How long will it take, or how many more stupid things like this, for Trump to lose the enthusiastic support of us patriotic Americans? Will it just be another George Bush (any one those worthless bastards) administration, meaning no slow-down in the stupidity?
It's just really disappointing so far, what we're seeing from this guy. He's just one guy, as I said, and needs our support in a multitude of ways. There are major impediments all throughout the Feral Government, but this Syria thing was a Commander-in-Chief decision; it's on Trump alone.
