'If you’re keeping score at home on the Trump foreign policy, let me try to put it in a nutshell: The president has engaged America in a grand struggle to reshape the modern behavior of two of the world’s oldest civilizations — Persia and China — at the same time.Pressing both to change is not crazy. What’s crazy is the decision to undertake such a huge endeavor without tightly defined goals, without allies to achieve those goals, without a strong and coherent national security team and without a plan on how to sync up all of President Trump’s competing foreign policy objectives.a president who acts a lot crazy — who creates pain without clear goals, who always insists on being seen to win and the other guy being seen to lose, with no compromise escape route — is not good.'

"This is no ordinary moment. This is the big one, folks. What's at stake with Trump and China is what kind of global economy we're going to have going forward. What's at stake with Iran is what kind of global nuclear nonproliferation regime we're going to have going forward.

"The stakes simply could not be bigger, which is why I believe 2019 will be a pivotal year like 1945 and 1989. I just hope it ends as well."

"The big question is can the president be disciplined enough, patient enough and deft enough cue the skepticism to translate the pain he's imposed on them into specific, tangible and lasting gains for America?"

What the USA has now is tRump, who is successful in raping women and preying on aspiring adolescent beauty pageant contestants, filing bankruptcies; a cheat, serial liar and inept Socialist POTUS. Who like the preceding GOP Bu$h/Buckshot Dick cabal had former Reagan War Criminals who were never punished for their Treason fomenting Iran-Contra weapons for cocaine scandal, came up with the PNAC 9/11 to implement its ME agenda.


I foresee in the very near future another False-Flag strike upon the country, most likely in a tRumptard area (mid-west/south) and blamed on Iran. To galvanize the nation behind Don the Con's and to continue the regime-change of 7 African/ME countries to facilitate the Greater-Israel Project.


We have a delusional administration Hell-Bent on fulfilling mythical Biblical prophecy in their lifetimes, which is just as absurd as the Muslim Sunni-Shia conundrum.
