Donald Trump — he does the best joined up thinking

So what was that Donald Trump was saying last year about how America should come first and the country shouldn’t be involved in so many foreign wars; that it was time to bring the troops home and focus on domestic things?

And how does that square with getting a SEAL killed in a raid in Yemen, putting more troops into Syria, bombing a Syrian airforce base, dropping a MOAB on Afghanistan and provoking war with North Korea?

Discuss.

Memorial

On September 11 this year the world was moved my the memorials for the victims of the 2001 attacks on the US. It is always tragic when innocent people die because of larger political conflicts over which they have no control.

Having remembered the 3,000 killed in the US, it is time we remembered the hundreds of thousands killed in Iraq and Afganistan when the US and its allies went on the offensive.
