Donald Trump: Warmonger-In-Chief?

Cryptic Pronouncements

If a world conflagration, God forbid, should break out during the Trump Administration, its genesis will not be too hard to discover: the thin-skinned, immature, shallow, doofus who currently resides in the Oval Office!

The commander-in-chief – a potential source of radiation?

 

This past week, the Donald has continued his bellicose talk with both veiled and explicit threats against purported American adversaries throughout the world.  In a cryptic exchange with reporters during a dinner with military leaders, he quipped:

You guys know what this represents? Maybe it’s the calm before the storm.  It could be the calm… before… the storm.*

A reporter asked if he meant Iran or Isis which the POTUS responded, “you’ll find out.”  Instead of threatening supposed overseas foes with nuclear annihilation, none of whom have taken any concrete military action against the US, why not go after someone who has actually compromised the country’s security, namely Hillary Rodham Clinton!

While some dismissed the comments as typical Trumpian bluster, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders added further ominous overtones when questioned saying they were “extremely serious.” Later in the week, Trump continued to threaten tiny North Korea, this time in not so veiled terms:

“Presidents and their administrations have been talking to North Korea for 25 years, agreements made and massive amounts of money paid hasn’t worked, agreements violated before the ink was dry, making fools of U.S. negotiators.  Sorry, but only one thing will work”.**

If war erupts either on the Korean Peninsula or in any other part of the globe that the U.S has wantonly poked its nose into, it can be safely assured that neither Trump nor any of the other “military leaders,” with whom he recently had dinner with will be in the midst of hostilities as the bombs and bullets are being cast about.

No, these laptop bombers will be in safe quarters far away from enemy lines, giving orders, making speeches, and praising the troops, while Congress will be hurriedly passing more “defense” funding legislation further lining the pockets of the military industrial complex.

Too far removed from the battlefield…

 

Curtailing the Warmongers

The Warmonger-in-Chief, who has repeatedly bragged about America’s military prowess, had a chance to become a part of the organization he constantly gushes over during his youth at the time of the Vietnam War.  Yet, he escaped military service, due to the machinations of his father, because of a mysterious foot/toe malady.

All those who avoided being conscripted into America’s disastrous imperial exercise in Southeast Asia during those years, whether it was from phony medical conditions, escaping to Canada or beyond, or going to jail, they did so for justifiable reasons.

The war was immoral, since Vietnam had taken no hostile action against the US and what made it worse, the government drafted thousands of America’s youth to fight it.  It is reprehensible that those who got out of military service then are now at the forefront in advocating mass murder (war).

One resolution that would certainly curtail warmongering in the future would be that any legislator, president, cabinet officer, or ambassador who promotes military intervention abroad should be required to directly participate in field operations.  This would quickly put the brakes on threatening talk from the likes of Trump and his crazed UN Ambassador, Nikki Haley.

A country’s leadership personally conducting military operations has a long tradition in Western history.  During the era of the crusades, princes and kings led their retinues and forces into battle risking their own life and limb – such as the great Norman prince, Bohemond, whose courage, tenacity, and military acumen won the day for Christian forces at the battle of Antioch.

From left to right: Bohemond I of Antioch, Bohemond’s troops scaling the ramparts of Antioch in AD 1098, Bohemond’s mausoleum in Canosa di Puglia. Bohemond was the son of Rober Guiscard, the count of Apulia and Calabria. His real name was Mark Guiscard. He was a nicknamed Bohemond after a legendary giant – the name was given to him because he was an unusually tall and strong man, dwarfing those around him. Even for a crusader, Bohemond’s life was unusually colorful. [PT]

 

This venerable ideal can still be seen in Russia when recently one of its generals and two colonels lost their lives in the Syrian quagmire.***   When was the last time a US general has perished in active combat?

It is apparent that the current POTUS does not understand the catastrophic consequences of what his threats, if carried out, would lead to – death to millions, unimaginable destruction, and the end of civilization.

A brief history of US-North Korean relations in the 2000ds

 

Maybe, had he actually suffered through the horrors of combat or had been the victim of US aggression as the peoples of North Korea, Vietnam and Iraq have witnessed, he might refrain from such bellicose language.

Hopefully, cooler heads in the Administration will prevail, however, a more peaceful world is unlikely with the likes of Donald J. Trump at the command of the greatest destructive force in human history.

Trump surrounds himself with more generals than Kim Jong-un.

I called him AGENT ORANGE for months.

If the name fits...

Good.  Let's blow the hell out of the bad guys while the blowing is good!

I'm still holding out hope that the "Calm before the storm" statement refers to the take down of the deep state. 

fbazzrea's picture

omg... i'm so sorry (;

in my most wildest dreams i can no longer go there. sadly

but hey... would love to be wrong.

you go, secretargentman

I know it's early, but he has yet to start a new war unlike the last several presidents.

Donald Trump: Warmonger-In-Chief?

The US never attacks somebody who can shoot back. So no one should worry about Hairdo attacking N Korea, especially with China backing it.

The Middle East? Probably. If so, it'd be for that shitty country harboring a bunch of fake hebrews.

Donald Trump.... the useful Goy. I still hold out hope this isn't the case but gotta be honest, things don't look so darn good! I'd like to know how we got so infested? I mean there surely was a time when we werent so infested. It's like the movie They Live out there and I'v got those goddamn glasses!!

You preferred the CHimp-in Chief who backed islam, right?

F that. We'll pick sides, OK? You take the islamists. I'll take the jews.

Ready? Set. HIKE! ( or Kike...whatever :)

fbazzrea's picture

it appears that may change any day now

The assumption of this article is that threats make you dangerous. In the context of N. Korea, the standard pablum from the last 25 years is what's dangerous -it's failed to contain NK or to engender any respect or fear from them. Trump has taken another approach - the status quo has faiiled miserably.

Opinions are all over the map as to what it means. It could possibly mean nothing and may be a psych job.

Don't forget, the world is a stage to the 1%.

fbazzrea's picture

you're right... no telling. but based upon the last nine months i'm not encouraged.

buyingsterling's picture

How encouraged were you by the last 29 years? More?

fbazzrea's picture

no, but that is the past. the present is pertinent. the past... well, it's the past.

Excellent thought, but probably wishful thinking IMHO.  At least the number of federal employees has declined by 13,000 under Trump so far.  That's progress!

I think a more likely meaning of Trump's pronouncement, is just that he wants the world's tyrants to think twice about being aggressive and hopefully they do stop their militant behavior, and Trump really has no plans for a "storm".    He's obviously convinced Acquinas he'd like to attack a tyrant somewhere (the obvious possibilities being North Korea, Iran, Syria, and ISIS).   Of course, it could be wishful thinking on my part.

Of what bad guys do you refer? Bankers, Politicians, Marxists, Communists, Men, Women, Corporations, Big Pharma, Holliwood, Snow Flakes, Hindu's, Christians, Muslums, Budast's, Jews, Catholics, Capitalists, Environmentalists, Sexists...........

giovanni_f's picture

No, by "bad guys" we refer to the common people in all countries, US included, who by their wrong decsions, mistaken polices and childish claim for "individual freedom and liberty" pose a grave danger to the holy global deep state misson of the US of A.

"Good. Let's blow the hell out of the bad guys while the blowing is good!"

If you were double jointed, and weren't suffering from microphallus, you might be able to blow the hell out of yourself.

Bush killed over 1 million people.

Obama about the same.

Hillary over 300,000 in Libya alone.

So it's premature to label trump a war monger.

JLM's picture

Agreed. The title Trump warmonger should be changed to President Warmonger.

mc888's picture

Where was all this frenetic WW3 agitprop and hyperbole back then?

Oh that's right, they were supporting the (((Wolfowitz))) doctrine. And supporting jihadi terrorists. And supporting Nazis.

All while ignoring the war that never ended.

MozartIII's picture

Likes his fricking drama!! Maybe thats why he is orange and dramatic, more people pay attention to him.

Rapunzal's picture

The warmongers are the bankers of the NWO, presidents are only puppets.

beemasters's picture

Next President/VP nominees are ...

Democrat: Kermit and Miss Piggy
Republican: Cookie Monster and Ernie

And it wouldn't make a difference. Still, the people will be fighting/cheering for either party.

Tallest Skil's picture

Yeah, no one gives a shit about this leftist faggot and his obvious propaganda article. You want to talk about warmongers? NONE will EVER best FDR or Woodrow Wilson. Goddamn traitorous whores.

zorba THE GREEK's picture

No bigger traderous whore than Lincoln. He murdered over a million Americans for rich northern businessmen.

Scuba Steve's picture

I thought he did it because he was sticking a cigar up Sally Hemings.

Djew see what I did there?

Davidduke2000's picture

maybe he is a fag, but he is right about trump, he is a warmonger, he was absorbed by the swamp that he never had any intention to drain, it was Bannon's idea to drain the swamp and make trump call himself a nationalist and once he got to office, bannon was kicked out.

Davidduke2000's picture

The only president in recent history who did not go to war was Jimmy Carter who till today still building homes to the poor. 

Oldwood's picture

Which wars did Reagan start? Oh yeah, that horrible Grenada war.

And Harvey gave over a million bucks to elect Democrats to help the poor. Another progressive hero.

It's obvious that CNN is his go to news outlet.

For your own sake/good i hope you jest. No one could be that dumb, could they?

Carlin said it best: think about how stupid the average person is - and then realize half the people in the world are dumber than that.

We're damned lucky all the geniuses showed up here.

you learned this from uncle dad??

zorba THE GREEK's picture

Donald ran on getting us out of oversea conflicts. Now he is the Warmonger in chief. Fuck that two-faced mother-fucker, even Obama had a distaste for conflict, piece of crap that he was.

historian40's picture

If Obama had a distaste for conflict, he had a funny way of showing it.

SloMoe's picture

Boom boom, out go the lights...

Davidduke2000's picture

He wants a government like in israel, everybody in the government is a retired general or a notch below, but since the israeli army has no soldiers only generals, I will stick with my first assessment. 

MasterControl's picture

Its fun to see all of the new colorful avatars that pop up from those in hiding after the election until tyler slips them a wet one once in a while.  It's like a rainbow came out.  Very pretty.
