What else can we say, all we hear tonight particularly by the overview on bbc r4 ‘The World Tonight’ 10pm is that the trump administration is basically a crock full of …. They back-track and re-manufacture whatever suits their purpose. We thought the Iraq 2003 was a fiction, this beats it all.
God help us all.
To re-phrase Brian Hooke US Special Representative, “trump is a sick and twisted individual” …. however more realistic to say low-functioning, a total liability.
Hate is a very high motivator; trump is an expert at engendering this.
Has no-one in the present White House Circus any idea how wars start? And how in Sarajevo in 1914 was unleashed utter hell by the ‘mere killing’ of one man.
Postscript: watching trump and his crazy tenure has forewarned the world as to how shallow, unfit and impetuous he really is, therefore the Free World can unite in condemning this mad act. As we would expect next morning we can hear invited experts to comment and of course we can hear the crooked spiel of certain pro-trump Americans, Mike Pompeo, Genl Jack Keane etc. It beggars belief, cold clear truth and informed opinion, a knowledge of history, of human nature, respect for other ways of life is in extreme short supply with anyone propping up trump and his Circus.
One has to realise how insulated and divorced trump is from actual reality. Pvt Bonespurs has no idea of the horror of war, for nations, for civilians, its as if they are chaff, they blow to the wind but these are real human beings locked into tragedy. If I were in charge I would build schools and hospitals that actually function, from what I have read of Iraq the Americans mostly built for show, for a photo-op; once the Press and Media walked away, the electric was cut once again. And the missing billions?
