Washington, Pentagon. If Americans thought they were making the “safer” choice in election 2016, they are now awakening to a President who never met a war he did not love. Geopolitical analysts caution Trump is on a neocon bender like no previous president, with wars expected globally for the duration of his presidency.
The Moab sounds more like a giant, war-torn biblical kingdom than the Massive Ordnance Air Blast,”mother of all bombs”. Still, give Donald Trump the credit. Only the really, really big bombs truly get his attention. He wasn’t even involved in the decision to drop the largest non-nuclear bomb in the US arsenal for the first time in war, but his beloved generals already know the man they work for, and the bigger, flashier, more explosive, than the better from a Donald John Trump perspective.
For Trump it was the awesome look of that first Moab going off in grainy black and white film on TV, rather than in Afghanistan, that appealed to the president. Just as he was visibly thrilled by all those 59 picturesque Tomahawk cruise missiles, the equivalent of nearly three Moabs and costing only $100 Million dollars, whooshing from the decks of US destroyers in the eastern Mediterranean and heading, like so many fabulous fireworks, toward a remote Syrian airfield.
“We’ve just fired 59 missiles,” he said, “all of which hit, by the way, unbelievable, from, you know, hundreds of miles away, all of which hit, amazing … It’s so incredible. It’s brilliant. It’s genius. Our technology, our equipment, is better than anybody by a factor of five.”
These days, from Syria to Afghanistan, the Koreas to Somalia, Yemen to Iraq, it’s easy enough to see Commander-in-Chief Donald Trump as something new under the sun. That missile strike in Syria was a first as not even Neocon slave boy Obama would strike Syria. The Moab bomb drop in Afghanistan was a first yet again. The drone strikes in Yemen soon after he took office were an absolute record! As for those regular army troops heading for Somalia, that hasn’t happened in 24 years! Civilian casualties in the region: rising impressively! Seems despite promises of wanting peace, all one Donald Trump can deliver-is war.
Everyday Americans would be wise to invest in lots of survival gear, weapons, food supplies, and a fine fallout shelter. With an imbalanced failed real estate developer who only knows how to make war, you have to know its just a matter of time before some of it gets passed around to you at home.
