Beginning mid-week Trump began beating the war drums against North Korea by repeating ‘locked and loaded’ and other catch phrases. His ultra-right wing supporters roared their approval and clapped their hands saying ‘Oh boy, another war’.
Yesterday he expanded the possibilities by announcing he is (or may be) considering military action against Venezuela. What could possibly be in Venezuela that is in America’s national interest except a few barrels of heavy crude petroleum.
Trump’s ploy is to direct the public’s attention away from his failures in Congress and the investigations of his involvement with Russia in last November’s presidential election.
