Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

Wait, you forgot the $37B donated to his ex -- just kidding, MacKenzie!  :D More seriously, I am glad each of these folks gets to make their own decisions here -- rather than Elizabeth W. or Bernie S. The Gates' make smart decisions and give their money to Malaria No More , as one example. In contr...

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

That's seriously dumb of them. The only way you can justify legally this attack is by an imminent threat. You don't get to blow foreign government officials into smithereens as "deterrent strategy", unless you're a terrorist state.

USA didn't bomb Kyoto in WW2 *because* it was an important cultural site. Now Trump wants to "punish" Iran by destroying their cultural artefacts. Who else was doing that in war? ISIS and Nazis.

The horrors of WW2 must be well and truly forgotten, given how free some people are with the "Nazi" label.
