Wall Street Journal: “President Trump bucked most of his top national-security advisers by abandoning retaliatory strikes in Iran on Thursday. In private conversations Friday, Mr. Trump reveled in his judgment, certain about his decision to call off the attacks while speaking of his administration as if removed from the center of it. ”

Said Trump to one confidant: “These people want to push us into a war, and it’s so disgusting. We don’t need any more wars.”

1. if he really believed that...........

he would recall out ships, issue an apology to Iran for stabbing them in the back on the nuclear deal, end the sanctions, and re-institute the deal.

i'm not holding my breath.

drumpf made a big deal in his campaign about wanting us out of endless wars. i also don't think he wants to manage a war because he is simply lazy.

but he is also stupid, gullible and easily swayed by praise. in short, i have no idea what is going to happen

4. If he really believed that

he wouldn't have appointed John Bolton as a national security advisor in the first place.

I agree: what's most dangerous about Dear Leader is not his convictions and beliefs, but his utter lack of them, and consequently his tendency to believe whatever the last person tells him.
