Trump is our president and I will admit that in the beginning I was impressed with some of his rhetoric pertaining to foreign policy and world affairs….but since taking office he has crapped on any positive statements that he may made in 2016.
Once he nominated Tillerson to run the State department and then his massive cuts to the State department and the firing of all the diplomats and “experts” in the different fields I have not seen anything that is positive with his policies…if anything he is crapping on this country.
The one good thing is that I am NOT alone there are many of us that see the decline in this country because of the bad foreign polies of the Trump administration…..
While Donald Trump delighted in launching 59 cruise missiles toward Syria while eating chocolate cake at one of his resorts, Syrians, as they have for years of living under conditions of extreme violence, feared the worst.
The devastatingly bloody conflict in Syria, which the US has already been involved in for years, has left nearly 500,000 dead and nearly 2 million injured. That means that more than 1 out of every 10 Syrians has been killed or wounded, and more than 85 percent of the country is living in poverty. According to the UN, more than 6 million Syrians are displaced within their own country, and nearly 5 million have fled the country altogether and are now refugees.
As the Trump administration appears poised to become increasingly involved in Syria and the greater Middle East, what is life like under the bombs?
Trump may not be the sharpest pencil in the box when it comes to foreign policy but he could do no better than a little research on the policies of Eisenhower….Ike did do some things in world affairs that were not the best choices but at least he did what he thought was best for peace and security in a changing world…..
Former president Dwight D. “Ike” Eisenhower was the supreme commander of Allied forces during World War II and he intimately knew the brutal, devastating nature of all-out war. Ike was a believer in maintaining overpowering military strength—including a stated willingness to use nuclear weapons—but more importantly, he was a strong advocate for peace and diplomacy. Before it is too late, let us hope President Trump can learn from the policies of Eisenhower.
Ike did have his moments that I would not approve of today….but at least he saw the need and the positive aspects of diplomacy…..something Trump and his d/bag Tillerson have not yet grasp.
This is the world we get when we vote for arrogance and ignorance.
