Coward


Something that just occurred to me yesterday:  You know how they say bullies are all cowards inside?  Well, here is the perfect example.
So, we know that this sick son of a bitch has been fomenting a war against North Korea for months, presumably because starting a war would be the biggest distraction possible when the irrefutable truth of his treason sinks in to the American people (if it ever does.)

Well, as I am sure you saw, a couple of weeks ago, North Korea launched a missile which is said to be capable of reaching Washington, DC.

Trump did not care a shred, of course, that if he started his war, hundreds of thousands of Koreans and Japanese citizens could die to provide a distraction from his crimes, but God forbid that there should be one thousandth of a percent chance that a missile might fall on him personally. Yes, folks, the Most Powerful Man On Earth has been beaten down and made to run for cover by a fat thirty year old punk with one of the most obsolescent armies on earth.

So all of a sudden it's all about how we have to have talks with North Korea, and the attention of the White House has totally turned to fomenting violence in the Middle East, where there are also millions of people who can be killed without Trump caring a bit.  And let's face it, the Palestinians, who have managed to fire ten thousand missiles at Israel without hitting a thing, are unlikely to be able to target the White House or Mar a Lago.  So here is our new enemy!

"Oceania was at war with Eastasia. Oceania had always been at war with Eastasia."-George Orwell, 1984

It would be pathetic if it weren't likely to kill a couple of million people in order to protect one loathsome criminal from the consequences of his actions.



A little note:  I haven't been posting much lately.  Partly that is because of work, but mainly because of something I have said before:  I like to try to say something that everybody else isn't saying too.  And the crimes of the Republicans are so blatant these days that there is no shortage of people talking about them.  Anyway, this post is an exception, because I haven't heard anyone suggest this line of thought yet.  I'm still here when I think I have something to add to the conversation.
