CIA has to explain to Trump why they don't blow up a house and an entire family and instead chose to wait until the target was well outside to drop a bomb on their head.

...Which is still killing a person in a different country without a trial but at least CIA has more heart than Trump has. Trump was not impressed and wants more drones and kills ASAP.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Well, he did say when campaigning that he thinks terrorists' families should be killed as warning examples. They are just brown people, it's not like they are real humans.

(This is assuming the target was a terrorist, of course, and ignoring all the other ethical issues involved in these strikes.)

Yea, I remember that but forgot to add it to my post. Turns out that one of the few campaign promises that he tries to keep is ordering the US military to commit warcrimes. (which is another thing he said on tape. Someone pointed out that the soldiers might not be willing to murder families and civilians and Trump insisted that they will do it because he will tell them to do so.)

I wonder if he would be willing to apply the same strategy to fighting domestic terrorism. If someone blows up a government building or shoots a bunch of black people in a church, just have the family members serve the same sentence as the terrorist.

He's already got an unofficial personality cult, so it's not too much of a stretch.

Things are gonna get hot in Washington.

In the latest comedy of terrors Trump blew his lawyer Cohen's claims in the Stormy Daniels matter into little smidgely bits.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1M8YYSTznKU" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1M8YYSTznKU</a>

A smart man would have shut the fuck up. But they went and interviewed Donald Trump.

Probably as a result the FBI raided Cohen and seized documents.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pCsmgC0dh0w" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pCsmgC0dh0w</a>

Trump went on TV to say the raid inspired by the payment he knew nuttin' about was an attack on the country itself.

Meanwhile US-Russia relations are on a knife edge as a result of the Syrian regime's latest use of poison gas.

I'm afraid a large body of caca may be hurtling towards the ceiling fan, moments to impact 3,2...

Trump then said a Raid on his Lawyers office is an attack on our country.
No Trump you're a fuck up and you did this to yourself. You really should listen to people.

I'd say that Trump thinks "L'état, c'est moi!" except that he'd actually have to be minimally knowledgeable to know that.

And Louis XIV was actually successful and competent. I cringe to think of what Trump would be like with absolute power.

I'll keep saying it: Trump doesn't want to be a dictator, he wants to be a "divine right" king.

It makes sense; dictators all look like complete dorks, whereas kings wear tonnes of gaudy bullshit.  Wonder which one would appeal more to Donald "Goldify ALL The Things!" Trump.

Great so with Bolton in charge of National Security Trump has now declared strikes on Syria possibly escalating us into a proxy war with Iran or Russia or both since this is not a simple good guy vs bad guy conflict.
I think he's doing it to distract from the investigation into his lawyer and things are digging even deeper into the shit pile that is Donald Trump.
