Since last November, when candidate Trump became President Trump, I have been witness to the controversy concerning Trump’s projected policy regarding Russia. After all, he said, very clearly, that he is willing to meet with Russian President Putin and join forces to fight universal terrorism. The Democratic Party and most of the establishment proceeded to attack Trump, accusing him of everything including treason.
Many folks, including a large number of people on the left, saw Trump as a breath of fresh air in light of Hillary Clinton’s war mongering. But let us not ignore that while he opened the door for rapprochement with Russia, he was making provocative statements toward China.
Recent developments have resulted in the dismissal of General Flynn as National Security Advisor and replacing him with Lt. General H.R. McMaster, a known anti-Russian provocateur. This is a strange strategy in Trump’s attempt to pursue a better relationship with Russia.
The goal of world dominance remains . . . the strategy is different. It appears that Trump, or better yet, his administration is hoping to align itself with Russia in order to disrupt their alliance with China while the US pursues control of the Asian markets and resources. Steve Bannon, White House chief strategist, has already declared that within the next ten years, the US will be at war with China.
Those on the left, who have been seduced into thinking that this racist, misogynist, xenophobe should be in any way tolerated, ought to rethink their evaluation of where we should be putting our energy and resources. He has surrounded himself with billionaires and generals and still many progressives were insisting that he must be given a chance before we resist him and his policies. What more do we have to see?
This man will not keep this country out of WW3, he is merely substituting one nuclear power for another.
