A Fool’s Fire and Fury
August 9, 2017
Scared, but resigned.
The man who didn’t serve in his generation’s war seems determined to drag this generation into another. The news feeds are pounding the drums, sources in high places say the Donald’s threat was “unexpected, but it wasn’t surprising” – a fine distinction. Other officials tell us, “Don’t read too much into it”. Secretary of State Tillerson says, “Americans should sleep well at night”. The legitimate government, such that it is, quotes “Don’t Panic” mimes to us.
Yet, the orange clown with the red button tweets about our nuclear arsenal as if it were one of his gold commodes.
It’s been only two-hundred-seventy-four days since the unexpected, but not surprising bullshit election and the republic is unlikely to sleep well tonight regardless of what the Exxon CEO disguised as our top diplomat says.
The Donald’s Republican support is retreating, the grand jury is closing in – and there’s nothing like a war to sway public opinion. So, dragging us into a military distraction seemed likely. Still, it was unexpected (but not surprising) when Trump opened with the nuclear option.
The mistake was, once again, giving him too much credit.
