Opinion – The Observer view on Donald Trump’s unfitness for office | Observer editorial | Opinion | The Guardian

Here’s a must-read and deeply alarming editorial from the Observer/Guardian. The liberal Observer reports that the incompetence and infighting at the White House dismay America’s allies and encourage its enemies. The bottom line is that Trump’s unfitness for office.

Normally, I don’t blog about politics in the summer but Trump’s absence of presidential leadership is a potential threat for all of us. The Observer maintains:

The common factor in all these situations is Trump’s self-induced powerlessness and ignorance, his chronic lack of credibility and presidential authority and consequent perceptions of US and western weakness.

Yesterday, I argued that Trump’s impeachment or resignation seems no more than speculation for the moment , so based on today’s evidence, we must expect Russia, Iran and North Korea to increasingly test Trump’s weakness. With Trump weak on leadership, judgement and political skills, these are increasingly dangerous times.

Opinion – Dick Cheney blasts Iran deal ‘madness’ – Yahoo News – John Gelmini

Sad as I am to say it, Dick Cheney, the old warmonger, is right in his assertions in this piece that Dr Alf has unearthed for us from Yahoo news.

The deal on Iran is a messy and dangerous compromise that has resulted from too little pressure being applied to Iran and particularly poor negotiating on the part of Kerry and the dangerous lame duck Obama.

Sooner or later, America will need to trigger its earthquake weapon and cause crop failures in Iran to concentrate minds because once the Iranians eventually have the bomb the West will be in uncharted waters.

Israel lacks B1 bombers and 30,000 pound thermobaric bombs with which to destroy Fordo and Natanz which are currently buried under 200 feet of reinforced concrete and would have to persuade America to act on its behalf.

Should Iran get the new Chinese radars capable of spotting stealth aircraft or Russia provide Iskander missiles to shoot down incoming aircraft through 360 degrees Israel is in real difficulty.
