Hello Ward,

GWB's only real reason for invading Iraq was his need to be a wartime
president when running for a second term. His little excursion in
Afghanistan only took two weeks to settle, and he let the bad guy get
away. With John Kerry (a real war hero who served in Vietnam) as his
main opponent, GWB had no other choice but to start a war with a
dictator that the US (and most of the world) had been demonizing for
years.

Are you suggesting President Truman should have allowed General
Douglas MacArthur to wipe out China after finishing off Korea?

Most political commentators give Donald J. Trump no chance in hell
of winning a second term. But do be aware that all it takes for
Donald J. Trump to win re-election is for him to push one button.

Not even Russian President Vladimir Putin has authority to act
on his own to push the button. But Trump does. And nobody can
stop him from doing so.

Scary, isn't it?

Sweet dreams.
