Trying to create a next world war
He found a promoter who nearly fell off the floor
He said, "I never engaged in this kind of thing before
But yes, I think it can be very easily done
We'll just put some bleachers out in the sun
And have it on Highway 61"

MATTHEWS: OK. The trouble is, when you said that, the whole world heard it. David Cameron in Britain heard it. The Japanese, where we bombed them in 45, heard it. They`re hearing a guy running for president of the United States talking of maybe using nuclear weapons. Nobody wants to hear that about an American president.

Is that T-Rump has a precedence. Dubya had a big approval ratings boost from the Neo-Con shenanigans and he and his Administration faced absolutely no repercussions for potential war crimes. You can get away with it. That's built-in now.

Hark, I hear the sound of war drums rumbling in the distance. Will he take any opportunity to go that route? Desperation is not good in this case as far as decisions go.
