Donald Trump went on Morning Joe and said he wanted to launch a ground invasion into ISIS-held territory in an open move to seize Middle Eastern oil. Finally, I thought. Finally a candidate who says what he means and means what he says!
Isn't Donald Trump refreshing, after all this evasion and politically correct babble? I like the tough-talking, no-nonsense way he embraces ideas that are clearly insane.
Here is a guy who is promising to get thousands of 20 year-old American kids shot to pieces in an ugly, unending campaign that will replay every single horror we saw in the last war over there... but at least he's not afraid to admit it!
"They have great money because they have oil," Trump said. "Every place where they have oil I would knock the hell out of them."
"I would knock out the source of their wealth, the primary sources of their wealth, which is oil. And in order to do that, you would have to put boots on the ground. I would knock the hell out of them but I'd put a ring around it and I'd take the oil for our country," he told MSNBC.
That's from Reuter's. And it makes it clear that when Donald Trump tries to give jihadists the propaganda tools they need to launch the next 9/11... he won't be shy about it.
Don't you have to commend him for that? That kind of honesty takes guts. He's absolutely guaranteeing a flood of our troops coming back to the country with terrible injuries, physical and psychological, in a mission that's bound to enrage people all over the Arab world and make them want to target American cities. It's heroic, how open he's willing to be about his brutality and his idiocy. Most candidates hide that kind of crap. They say things like "freedom's on the march." They promise they're helping people build democracy. And none of us believe it, of course. But that's the point. We don't believe anything anymore, and Donald Trump knows that.
You have to admire the man. It takes commitment to be that dangerous and out of control.
Donald Trump wants to use US troops to kill people you don't even know in places we have no business intervening, and that will make your life a nightmare of paranoid security theater and increased terrorist attacks. He wants that because he's a vicious, ignorant asshole... but at least he won't pretend he's a good person.
Republican voters are clearly responding to him. Because after all this time, they don't like pretending either.
