Hopefully the US will go back to being a strict isolationist country, so that the rest of the world may have some peace...

Trump signed a communique and then disparaged it. He got the attention he wanted and his supporters got their headline.

EU President Donald Tusk Worries About “New World Order” Being Dismantled – The Peasants are Revolting…

“It must be always be remembered; there is nothing more difficult to plan, more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to manage than a new system. For the initiator has the enmity of all who would profit by the preservation of the old institution and merely lukewarm defenders in those who gain by the new ones. ”

Yep. If one is content, for whatever reasons, with the "Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama legacy," then I suppose it is entertaining to take pot shots at the buffoonish Trumpster. But for those of us who wish for change, any change, in US foreign and domestic policies, Trumpian rhetoric is welcome.

I'm so picky that I'd prefer change that actually makes things better rather than change that makes things worse, but maybe that's just me....

The "new system" which Trump represents looks a lot like the black plague of the Middle Ages... Only rats profit from it...

Monica Crowley explains it well


BTW I wouldn't have guessed that you like Angela Merkel so much.

Admit it Jim: in foreign policy the USA has behaved like a rudderless ship ever since the end of the cold war. It is still doing so today.

US policymakers are clueless about how to behave in a world where there is no "evil empire" on the horizon to threaten the US with obliteration.
