I thought that Mr Trump wanted to keep his country safe and to give people better lives under his caretaking. This is a point where all politicians have trouble. They are not controllers of the world’s destiny; they are caretakers of it for the generation to come, the one after, etc.
I fully expected Mr Trump to take time and suggest more tourism around the States to make a happier population. The vacation resort islands of The Bahamas and the Caribbean need help and the US has its fair share of rebuilders.
What the population does not want is another war. No terrible weapons were found in Iraq, the Taliban was not quite eradicated in Afghanistan and is putting its head over the parapet again and Syria has been reduced to rubble. Their populations are scarred by war and have come to the West to help make them better.
America is hardly the friendliest of nations towards Europe. Americans talk of doing Europe: 22 countries in 21 days, oh and a hop to the UK. When we had foot and mouth disease in the south-west of England, every city dweller had to walk through disinfectant to enter the States.
Now the Pentagon has jumped into a volatile situation between two country leaders, to assure the President of its support; hardly what anyone needs at the moment.
To Messrs. Trump and Kim Jong-Un, please look to your countries. Your people have faith in you to promote its economy and to safeguard its citizens. In war, thousands will die. What for again? I have forgotten.
