How to Become an Expert on Military Strategy and Preparedness

Too bad we don’t have a stable genius like Donald Trump in the offal office right now, given the war in Ukraine. He is soooooo well informed! Here, a blast from the past, Trump talking to NBC reporter Chuck Todd when the former was a candidate in 2015:

TODD: “Whom do you talk to for military advice right now?”

TRUMP: “Well, I watch the shows. I mean, I really see a lot of great, you know, when you watch your show and all of the other shows, and you have the generals.”

So, “see a lot of great, you know, . . . watch your show and all of the other shows,” and you will totally understand this whole military thing.

This is the man (I’m using the term loosely) who became Commander in Chief of the most powerful country in the world.

    And what’s worse is there are many … far too many for my comfort … who hope to see him back in the Offal Office in 2025 for another 4 … or 8, 12, 16 years.

    Everyone seems to think Russia is a global threat…it’s not. Putin, sensing the end of his run and old age/declining health, is taking a shot at reconstituting a chunk of the former Soviet Union. But his military is weak, the oligarchs have stolen too many rubles, Russia is a paper tiger with nukes.

    The real threat is China, which, by the way, Trump has been warning us about for decades. China is lending money and building infrastructure all over the world to gain influence over other countries, they’re building military & commercial ports wherever they can…their military, unlike Russia’s, is now rivaling if not surpassing our own. What are we gonna do when China invades Taiwan? Biden will just frown and lodge a weak “protest” at the useless United Nations.

    What’s weird is how NO ONE will criticize China…I guess everyone (Soros, Gates, Zuckerberg, Hollywood, Congress, almost all of our media, corporate America, American academia, etc.) is making too much money off China. They even get a pass for what they’re doing to the Uyghurs.
