Trumps approval is going up

Per msnbc. Looks like the "Let's go kick some ass!" foreign policy stuff is working out for him. I wonder if this is gonna be temporary or sustained though. I think people are liking this "Blow up some ISIS scumbags" stuff, but I doubt they'll like it if we get involved in an actual war.

6. They killed 39 people with a $16 million bomb

So basically, each casualty cost the US Taxpayer $410,250. Big fracking waste of money if you ask me. When you think of what else this money could have been spent on it makes me sick.

4. Wag the dog

 

Putin and Trump's dog and pony show is having the desired effect.

The MSM loves war don't you know?

Hermann Göring

Göring: Why, of course, the people don't want war. Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally, the common people don't want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship.

Gilbert: There is one difference. In a democracy, the people have some say in the matter through their elected representatives, and in the United States only Congress can declare wars.

Göring: Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.

8. How about this suggestion

In order to make a decision to go to war, you must have children who are on active duty. In other words, let's put Uday and Qusay in uniform and hand them an M-16. Drop them off in the DMZ. Now we are ready to go to war with NK.

11. According to what? He still at 40% on Gallup daily, which is terrible for a new president. He moved

up from his lowest point (36% in March) before the bombings and threatening began. The Gallup daily poll has shown that Trump didn't get any significant bump from the Syria attack. His numbers are horrible for a new president.
