Of course the cost of his leadership is his boorishness , hedonism , and ineptitude, while preoccupied with looting the treasury to keep his allies and he has many , onboard .A similar political move Slick Willie Clinton often employed . Something Nixon failed to do.

    The solution is criminalizing warmongers, not echoing peacemongers. Even the planning of aggresive war is a crime. That’s based on the Pact of Paris, which is part of the U.S. Constitution, and was a key part of the Nuremberg and Tokyo tribunal indictments. See YouTube and CSpan talks on the “The Internationalists”.

    Makes sense to me – in times past profits for the MIC were deemed far more important than the harm and destruction that their products cause, export dollars and jobs plus the feeble excuse that the MIC has contracts to supply meaning that apparently they’re able to sue via ISDS/IIAS provisions.

    In the end – a corrupt system cannot be used to correct itself – it needs to be replaced .
