JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: TRUMP AND PELOSI SAID TO BE IN A DESPERATE FIGHT OVER FUTURE HEARTS AND MINDS – BUT EXCEPT FOR TRUMP’S GROTESQUELY CRUDE MANNER, I SEE LITTLE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO PARTIES, ESPECIALLY IN FOREIGN AFFAIRS   Leave a comment

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY PHIL THOMAS IN THE INDEPENDENT

 

“Trump and Pelosi’s desperate fight for the hearts and minds of the future

“From tearing up speeches to spinning ever more fabulous yarns, the speaker and the president are locked in a titanic struggle for the judgement of posterity”

 

“Trump and Pelosi’s desperate fight for the hearts and minds of the future”

 

Well, I don’t really agree.

Trump is simply grotesque in his rudeness and noise.

But the Democrats’ leaders, including Pelosi, while lacking his brutality, share most of his fundamental aims abroad.

They simply are not all that different.

None of them opposes the Pentagon/CIA/NSA imperial complex in the United States.

Do we hear any criticism of all the horrors the US has caused in the Middle East?

Of all the needless and violent coups and blockades and bombings and wars?

Of telling countries all over the globe how to run their affairs and from whom they must buy things?

Of blood-drenched friends like Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince and Israel’s Netanyahu and the Generalissimo running Egypt?

The Democrats are just as much a War Party as the Republicans. Obama bombed every single day of his eight years. Hillary Clinton is downright bloodthirsty, as proved by some of her own words.

And while they talk of social programs at home, how is that possible with the Pentagon/CIA/NSA imperial complex devouring a trillion dollars a year, and all of it borrowed, national debt already piled up in excess of twenty-two trillion dollars?

None of the larger Democratic social proposals can possibly happen. There’s no room for them.

And no willingness either. Everyone of these Democratic leaders lives politically off the campaign donations of lobbyists opposed to large new social programs. Money runs American government.

You can have a decent country or you can have an empire. America chose empire a long time ago.
