Trump : straight shooter or loose cannon

Trump’s Impossible Dream

 

 

“Maybe we ought to consider a Golden Rule in foreign policy: Don’t do to other nations what we don’t want happening to us. We endlessly bomb these countries and then we wonder why they get upset with us?”  — Ron Paul Want, Why, Upset

A   T I M E L Y   M I L I T A R Y   I N T E R V E N T I O N  ?

Donald Trump, the current commander-in-chief for the United States of America ,is being evaluated as a “reactionary”  president who lacks a solid foreign policy strategy and whose band-aid approach to solving global problems will only render his White House frenetic actions as acts of a desperate man trying to appease everyone and resolving nothing.

The US military yesterday dropped an enormous bomb in Afghanistan. 

A GBU-43/B Massive Ordinance Air Blast Bomb ( MOAB), nicknamed the “Mother of all bombs” , was dropped at 7:32 p.m. local time Thursday.
 
The unit itself is a 21,600 pounds, GPS- guided munition that is reportedly America’s most powerful nn nuclear weapon.
 
The bomb , dropped by  an MC-130 aircraft, stationed in Afghanistan and operated by Air Force Special Operations Command, Pentagon spokesman Adam Stump told CNN. was meant to obliterate the many underground tunnels and passages that were Isis members evade detection.

 

The percussive effect shown on video was impressive but the one drawback to the entire operation is that Trump really has no established and defined foreign policy to direct the might of his military forces.

 Trump on the campaign trail repeatedly emphasized that he would not want the United States to become the policemen of the world but in the last week he has sanctioned a targeted air strike in Syria on an air base having little or no political impact. The targeted air field resumed its bombing runs with little collateral damage.

 The president’s impromptu raids are deemed less hawkish than Hillary Clinton’s might have been.

 A well planned and formalized foreign policy plan is a must have if the president does not want to waste tax payers money and public support for his well-intentioned but badly thought out military scenarios.

 At this stage in time the country needs a leader who is a straight shooter and not a loose cannon. — gc

  1. Part of me is relieved that he doesn’t come out guns blazing because he’s very likely to have the wrong target.

    • Good observation Sue. Militarily speaking spot on. Politically speaking floundering like a dolphin in a fisherman’s net. EEEk ( that was my best dolphin shriek of terror). 🙂

      • I wanted to ask you about what solution would you propose since you, like many people, are averse to the bombing on Afghanistan? The people there are of a sweet disposition and definitely don’t deserve this … Besides reasons of peace.
        Your new pic, I have to say, is very cool.

      • Spare the bombs and increase the political action in the area. The past eight years in the United States Oval Office were inept , morally bankrupt and almost politically embarassing. World leaders should use a medium such as NATO to come to some realistic and feasibly attainable solution so that the bombs can be warehoused, the inflammatory rhetoric silenced and the realization that innocent people are being decimated because of global inaction finally be appreciated.

        Thank you for your insightful comment and thank you for liking my new photo. Much appreciated.

  4. To some of us (Americans) he’s an embarrassment. Period. And he’s never been a straight shooter in his entire life (from what I can gather, which is not much granted, given I loathe the idiot). He’s going to take America down. Single handedly. Scary for those of us who have to live with his horrible decisions.

    • Do you not fid it interesting that a national iterest group has not tried to legally take hm down. A Citizen’s Action Group aganist Trump combined with a barrage of phone call’s to state representatives might have some type of social clout.
