Roger’s note: Charlie Brown fell for the trick every time. He never learned.
The American political and pundit class will Charlie Brown-like fall for it every time. When a president’s popularity approaches rock bottom, launch a military attack. It’s as predictable as night following day. Yet most fall for it every time.
But this is no funny cartoon trick. This is an act of war that will likely escalate into unpredictable levels of new killing. The New York Times fell for it. The Canadian Prime Minister fell for it. The majority of Democrats and Republicans in Congress fell for it. Falling all over themselves to congratulate Sociopath Trump.
As if Psychopath Trump really cares about Syrian children being killed. As if acts of escalation can be controlled. As if cruise missiles will not result in more refugees. As if there can be anything legitimate about the Trump Disaster Presidency.
Here is a sane analysis from those who know better.
