You know I have been struggling to articulate to myself, let alone anyone else, what exactly freaks me out about Trump (yea, yea, beyond just about everything else).
Here is how I would put it, on a foreign policy, danger to the world, fall of the roman empire, sort of level. It is fairly obvious, at least at this point, neither Trump nor his proposed appointees know what hell they are doing. Even if you have a fairly experienced foreign policy team, it normally takes a year or two for them to settle in to office. O.k., I can give them the benefit of the doubt, while holding my nose for a while (hopefully I won't pass out waiting).
What I am afraid of is some other moron, misreading that, doing something stupid, expecting a certain reaction, and Trump doing something, well, I am not sure what, that sets off a chain reaction, that no one can contain. For example, Kim in N. Korea has been pretty well behaved. Putin, well, strangely after his phone call with Trump, has launched a full on assault on aleppo, so not sure what to read in to that yet. Europe, is talking building their own army. China, being China, is keeping their head low. I have heard it said, if China invaded a country, they would do it by taking one grain of sand at a time.
Let's just say, the price of gold is looking pretty tasty right now, and I frigen hate gold as an investment. No one panic. I am not buying any. If I did that, my Gold investment Karma would cause the Global price of Gold to crash (conversely, you might want to buy some tonight before the markets open, as it always goes up when I decide not to buy [$1300 an ounce anyone?]).
o.k., I'm sick of Trump. Time to watch the Chile vs. Uruguay game, qualifier for the 2018. Real, immediate threat to Chile's national security after the finger in the but scandal last time.
