“History is always written by the winners. When two cultures clash, the loser is obliterated, and the winner writes the history books-books which glorify their own cause and disparage the conquered foe.” ― Dan Brown,

George Armstrong Custer was a United States Army officer and cavalry commander in the American Civil War and the American Indian Wars. A noted personality of his era.
Donald John Trump is the 45th and current President of the United States. Before entering politics he was a businessman and television personality.
The two men have everything and nothing in common. One man tried unsuccessfully to eliminate the Sioux Indian nation while the other seems to be hell-bent on eradicating the planet of the people of North Korea and their threat to world peace.
Both men are to cocksure of their own place in history and are oblivious to the fact that reality and their deluded way of thinking may be at odds.
Mr Trump and Custer are consumed with the rightness of their every action nd no threat is too great that they cannot nip in the bud.
History has shown time and agin the results of such ego maniacal thinking.
In Custer’s time Winchesters rifles. tomahawks and bows and arrows were the weapons of choice.
Today The United States of America and the People’s Republic of North Korea possess enough nuclear armament to incinerate not only the planet we live on but make a substantial dent if the fabric of our solar system.
Rational men and women in government should realize that Mr T. might be suffering from mental stress and call for his removal from public office before Trump’s North Korea conflict becomes his LIttle Big Horn.
History and karma have a way of eventually balancing the ledger of decency. — gc
