In this penetrating and alarming editorial, the UK’s Observer argues that a directionless, foolish president has unlocked the weapons store. The bottom-line warning is that we are all in great peril.
The Observer looks at the evidence, links the dots and concludes that Trump’s foreign policy has no strategy. Others have commented that it’s knee-jerk and designed to gain political traction by distancing him from Obama’s weak and indecisive record in foreign policy. The Observer article is par for the course from the world’s more liberal media.
However, conservative commentators are more flattering to Trump. For sure, the Observer article is biased in that it fails to articulate the global context and the evils of the regime in both Syria and North Korea.
After Obama’s disastrous eight years of foreign policy decisions, surely it’s fair to give Trump a chance?
