I am certain that, at some time in the future, President Xi and I, together with President Putin of Russia, will start talking about a meaningful halt to what has become a major and uncontrollable Arms Race. The U.S. spent 716 Billion Dollars this year. Crazy!
I have news for Mr. Trump--Russia is not in the "arms race", she is doing her absolutely own thing and is not intent on bankrupting herself maintaining 11 CVNs, a truck load of very expensive expeditionary forces and using them to meddle (that is unleashing wars) in affairs of countries which are NOT a threat to national security. I have to go with RT's reasonable proposition:
Yet, there is a critic in the White House, who apparently thinks little of these accomplishments, which the Trump administration showcases at every opportunity. His name is Donald Trump.
And if Fred Reed was first to point out that Trump is a first transgender POTUS, I may go further and state that Donald J. Trump is a first Schrodinger President, exhibiting wave-particle duality and capable to exist simultaneously in several states. This is where my descriptive and analytical, however feeble, abilities abandon me completely and I am forced to look at all that in a complete bemusement. I never was capable to be proud and abhor the same thing simultaneously, even after I dedicated a lot of time to reading Michio Kaku, Brian Greene and other wonderful quantum physicists. But jokes aside, Colonel Lang gave a grim assessment of this whole FUBAR:
Bolton, Pompeo, his new helpmate Mary Kissel, dozens and dozens of Obama globalist holdovers, and people who find Trump's boorish ways repulsive, they all are undermining the administration from within and Trump does nothing about it. He is in fact detestably boorish but is that a reason to betray the oath you took to serve in his government? I think not. Is Trump competent in such matters as tax policy, regulatory reform and trade negotiations ? I think he is, but he is allowing the neocons to destroy the possibility of rational political relations in Europe and the Middle East. To quote a great president, "I grieve for my country when I think that God is just." TJ Jefferson
I have to agree. In the end, one cannot have the cake and eat it--in the world of the large quantum mechanics laws do not apply.
