It's just conversation for me. I don't have a dog in the fight. So if it's not for the sake of the safety of the rest of the world, I will enjoy the results of Trump's mental illness.

On the bright side, there are indications that proper safety measures have been taken to defang Trump and make him relatively harmless on foreign policy that could endanger the rest of the world.

The foreign policy he's being allowed to tamper with, such as withdrawing *aid to Pakistan can only work in a positive way for world peace.

*aid being military.

That's the equivalent of the US withdrawing support from the UN and Nato but Americans are too vain to understand why.

As I've said, I think of the likely reason why they had to kill Kennedy. Trump needs to make sure he trusts his CIA bodyguards. That's not possible now. It's like asking Comey or the FBI to keep Trump safe.

The Goldwater rule most certainly applies to Trump.


It does. However, you can't expect people with the kind of power our society has given to shrinks to follow their own rules. You get to the top by breaking rules, not by following them. I maintain that the diagnoses are valid, because it is a power they have, and that the rule defining those diagnoses as unethical is applicable, but meaningless, like all rules are to those with power.

People can have power without having anything to do with the government. That power can be dangerous without having anything to do with the government. Those diagnoses could lead to a Trump impeachment without having anything to do with government.

Have the same witch doctors that diagnosed Trump from afar applied their magic to Young Kim? What's their diagnosis of him?

It's just converation for me, too, like the Jaguars winning a playoff game.

Columbia University Sociology Professor C. Wright Mills wrote The Power Elite in 1956.
https://www.amazon.com/Power-Elite-C-Wright-Mills/dp/0195133544/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UT...

In 1961 two-term President and 5-star General Dwight Eisenhower warned of the rising power of the Military-Industrial-Complex in his Farewell Address.

However, in the last 60 years the Power Elite have not lost power, but instead have evolved into the Military Industrial Pharmaceutical Educational Banking Congressional Etc. Complex with, imho, the CIA, not the Executive or Judicial branches of government, in the catbird seat.

Yes, but not the 'same' doctors. In fact, not doctors at all, but that doesn't seem to be of any consequence to the American people who are totally convinced that Kim is a madman. And he's far from the first country's leader that was judged as a madman which led to the American people giving their blessings for war.

The issues don't need to be confused. Mental health professionals are becoming almost unanimous on Trump's lack of mental health. I'm surprised to hear you taking the other side on this!

[excerpts from a NYT article:]

Tom Steyer, the billionaire environmentalist and Democratic political donor, announced Monday that his advocacy group, NextGen America, will spend $30 million to help Democrats retake the House in 2018, with the aim of eventually impeaching President Trump.

Steyer said his campaign would focus on reaching millennial voters, who will constitute the largest voting demographic in the 2018 and 2020 elections.

“We are really focused on removing this president,” Mr. Steyer said.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/08/us/politics/tom-steyer-trump-impeachment-midt...

This will fail - like all the rest of Steyer's political endeavors. He thinks he can "buy" Trump's impeachment.
Nope.

One wonders how that happened. Those poor bastards. They'll probably kick the bucket in the next game.

I have no reason to think such a thing can't be bought. It might cost more than $30 million, though.

I don't know Mr. Trump, or Young Kim either, but Young Kim is decidedly crazy. What sane person known to possess nuclear weapons would launch an ICBM in the direction of Japan?

That which you term as crazy has turned out to be a successful gambit.

Regardless of US rhetoric aimed at damage control, the US has been excluded and great hopes are being expressed on the beginning of reunification talks.

In fact, something that all libertarians should be very happy about taking place. And all of US congress trying to stop the progress.

But that's now what we hear on this forum is it sweet cheeks. You can hear it over at antiwar.com if you're interested!

That doesn't mean it wasn't an insane thing to do, or that the maniac who ordered it shouldn't be tried and probably hung.
