“There has been a strong tradition in this country that it is not the function of the military to educate the public on political issues. ” — J. William Fulbright

President Trump it seems is no longer consumed with the idea of building his great wall of separation but is currently concerned with another looming menace: reality
The self-proclaimed master deal maker is slowly and surely realizing that many of his lone wolf strategies are coming back home to bite him on the butt. His iron will is no longer valued or negotiable in the global arena.
His going it alone political manoeuvering have estranged him from long-term allies, ignited North Korea’s military bonfires and left him scrambling for effective long-term solutions to deal with the growing troubles and unrest in Syria.
His many haired brained campaign promises when view in the sober light of day and common sense are not that hurtful and can be met with policy reversals before too much damage has been done.
He has unofficially abandoned his America First rhetoric in favor of a policing policy that ensures the rights and freedoms of other countries in the world. It is being described as a less hawkish Obama/Clinton form of intervention.
It seems that Mr T. and that other mad man in Pyongyang are both gung-ho absolutists who believe in their own divinity and infallibility, have Utopian plans for their respective countries and enjoy being considered the Ultimate Supreme leaders of their nations.
To burst this bubble of insanity it appears that the North Korean province and The United States of America are being governed by pampered men lacking political leadership skills and the political acumen to do what is best for their countries and not themselves.
What is right for Trump may not be best for the country and his recent reversal strategies are testaments to the fact that he is beginning to eventually realize that he cannot do the job alone.
Playing nice in the real world means being team player. — gc
