Trump's Withdrawal from Iran Deal, Summit with Kim, and Hall Gardner's Book (Eugenio Battaglia, Italy, 05/15/18 4:52 am)

Of course the US spends "only" about 700 billion dollars on weapons and defense. Should it feel threatened by Iran spending the huge amount of $10 billion? The Israelis are at $14.5 billion.

Turning to North Korea, Kim would be a damned fool if he accepts the impositions of Trump. See what happened to Gaddafi.

Finally, how is it possible to order Hall Gardner's book World War Trump?

JE comments:  Last thing first, Eugenio (and glad you asked).  I found Hall's book on Amazon.it.  (That fellow Jeff Bezos owes me a commission.)


Second thing second:  Given the spotty US record of late at keeping its word, is there any reason Kim should believe Trump and cut a deal?  Every petty dictator must have the "Gaddafi Factor" front and center in his/her mind.  Kim is not just negotiating with Trump, however.  There is also the very attractive carrot from Moon in the South.

First thing last:  The US wages its wars with stuff.  For example, it outspent Japan about 7 to 1 in WWII.  In Vietnam, the ratio was certainly far greater.  We Americans are the world's best bargain shoppers in every area except defense.  Iran could probably give us a spirited fight with its $10 billion arsenal.  In any case, irregular or asymmetrical warfare is done on the cheap.
