COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY DANIEL LARISON IN CHECKPOINT ASIA

 

“Bolton’s Exit Doesn’t Change Anything, The Real Problem Has Been Donald Trump All Along

“It's Trump's narcissism, not Bolton's subterfuge, which has been blowing up settlements that could have been had with the Taliban, North Korea, Russia and Iran”

 

"Bolton’s Exit Doesn’t Change Anything, The Real Problem Has Been Donald Trump All Along"

Yes, I agree completely with that headline.

But the situation is far worse than this article proceeds to say in its main body.

Quite apart from his extreme narcissism, Trump lacks all the talents required for his job and the tasks he’s chosen to pursue.

He's impatient, rude, not well-informed, always ready to blame others, driven by impulses no one can even understand, extremely dishonest, displaying loyalty to no one but his (inept) daughter.

I don't think a great many Americans understand fully how destructive he has been.

They are still blinded or partially blinded by all that Old Glory Patriotism and God Bless America crap.

Driving allies away. Renewing old hostilities. Generating new unnecessary hostilities. Driving new combinations together abroad. Leaving little faith in the value of America's word, both among opponents and friends. Tearing up important treaties and conventions.

Destroying a great deal of world trade. Destroying or insulting important international institutions. Trying to threaten his way to increased prosperity.

The landscape of all his efforts is just bleak, resembling something after a terrible war.

I'm pretty sure he has set some things in motion which cannot be reversed and are going to prove extremely averse to America's long-term interests.

I'm sure he's speeded the emerging multi-polar world in reactions against his stubborn blundering and almost complete dishonesty, speeded the dissolution of old close alliances, and speeded the eventual death of America's world reserve currency status.

Response to a comment saying, “If the possibility exists to mitigate those odds, it rests entirely with Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan complete troop withdrawals”

And what would the odds for such acts coming from the most subservient President in history to Israel's interests, excepting only possibly Lyndon Johnson?

The Neocon Wars, quite literally, are Israel's beloved children.

American aggressiveness in the world is precisely the music Israel wants played, believing its ability to be aggressive in its own region requires it as backup.
