Trump sure is having fun, isn't he? It's not that I think that trying to get rid of Isis is a bad thing - I don't. But I have a lot of trepidation about what has happened over the last few days - it seems to me like a megalomaniac has discovered a bunch of fun things to chuck around and hence is doing so.
I heard a bird cry, sharp and free. My name is Jordan.
I think he went into office with absolutely NO plan for anything. I think he got hit with something he wasn't prepared to face and is doing stupid actions with considering consequences. The fact that he is a known liar, cheater, user, and believes in doing whatever is necessary to achieve his desires is a major factor in his thinking.
Trump does things instead of dithering. But whilst he get things done, very quickly, the ramifications can be huge. Violence begets violence. Terrorists exist because the Western world - and I include Britain in this - have been terrorising the Middle East for over 100 years. It's the only way they can fight back.
So what will Trump do in North Korea and what will be the ramifications? He might try to take out North Korea's nuclear weapons, but I doubt it. It's too risky, Kim Yong-un is capable of dropping an atomic bomb on Seoul and he will do it if he's cornered. Even if his nuclear weapons are destroyed before he gets the chance to use them, his conventional arms could inflict enormous damage on South Korea. The thing is, China probably doesn't trust Trump not to be reckless. So Trump's game of tic-tac-toe might win in the end. It's sort of bitter sweet if he does.
Either stupid, or genuinely believes that the job is easy and everyone else was incompetent or dragging their heels. He's already come out with "Nobody knew health care could be so complicated?" and has admitted that being president is more work than he expected! I think the rest of us were pretty clear on that already!
