What did I just say about the consequences of praising Donald Trump for dropping bombs on Syria?
While everyone sat around trying to figure out if Trump has any coherent long-term plan to actually help the Syrians, in his typical ADD style, Trump lost interest in Syria within days and dropped a bomb on Afghanistan.
Not just any bomb, but the “mother of all bombs,” a 21,600 lb. monster carrying the equivalent of 11 tons of TNT. They say you could see the mushroom cloud from 20 miles away, which must have given Trump the biggest boner of his life. Too bad Melania was in New York.
How effective was the bomb? So far, no reports of civilian casualties, which is miraculous. But it only took out 36 ISIS fighters. That’s about 610 pounds of TNT per fighter.
American taxpayers just killed 36 terrorists for $444,444 apiece, and that doesn’t include fuel for the plane. Trump has said he LOVES spending other people’s money, the more the better. Launching indiscriminate attacks anywhere he thinks he sees a squirrel, wasting military resources and millions of dollars for minimal gain, is one of the few campaign promises he’s actually following through on.
So what’s next? Trump’s been talking smack about North Korea, and they’re saying if Trump wants nuclear war, they’ll be happy to oblige him.
Will Congress stand there and let Trump obliterate the planet in his sick obsession with diverting attention from his bromance with Vladmir Putin? That’s all these provocations in the Middle East amount to.
Trump has no convictions and no strategy for resolving any conflict anywhere. He just likes bombing things because he thinks it makes his dick look bigger.
What we’ve got is an egomaniac with no moral compass who won’t hesitate to kill masses of people — innocent or not — just for attention. Even better if anyone praises him for it, especially if it’s Putin.
Another well-armed maniac, Kim Jong Un, is playing “Chicken” with Trump right now, and Trump won’t let North Korea come out ahead. If someone doesn’t find a way to pull the plug on Trump’s new bomb habit, now that he’s proven beyond a doubt that he thinks war is a game and he can’t be trusted with the nuclear codes, we may all be toast.
