Cost of peace


Picture used for illustrative purposes only.

Even the bravest and most decorated soldier will tell you that war is horrific and fighting should be avoided as much as possible. There is much to fear when a man who avoided his military service because of 'sore feet', bone spurs in his heels, tells Russia, “In fact, I would encourage them to do whatever the hell they want. You got to pay. You got to pay your bills” and this is a potential repeat Commander in Chief of the most powerful country, and probably military force, in the world. He was sidestepped by generals who used to steal papers off his desk so that he couldn't sign orders they knew were wrong. This does not inspire confidence.

He is the bully in the playground who picks on the child who cannot afford the celebrity sneakers or the teacher who sends a student home because they don't have the correct uniform on. Is he the best of the best in the US? No!
