Well, folks, here we go again! Apparently the same person who told Trump that Lincoln was a Republican has informed Trump that no sitting president who sought re-election during time of war has ever been defeated. So the same Electoral College system that gave us George W. Bush has inflicted upon us Donald J. Trump, who will likely give us a new bogus war to fight.

Now it seems that the man who never saw a war he didn't like (John Bolton) and the man who dodged military service (Trump) are pushing for a new war ... this time on Iran. Old people never have a problem sending our young people off to war especially if it will increase their popularity with their political base and improve their odds of re-election. So Trump's base will wave their flags and applaud Trump's bravado and, well after the war has been waged it will be revealed, as with Vietnam and Iraq, Trump's war was based upon lies. But that will be of no matter as that fact will soon be forgotten as we pursue more important matters like Hillary's e-mails and we will continue to use our troops as political pawns just as we saw on the border.

Believe it or not this is the letter I was going to write many months ago as I knew Trump would start a war as his low polls numbers would otherwise spell defeat. For what it's worth (very little), I will oppose this preemptive war as I did before and during W's preemptive war on Iraq. I marched in bitter cold on many of the anniversaries of that war. In that regard, I do thank a clueless public who will likely support Trump's actions as Trump's less than useless war will most likely begin in warmer weather.
