Strategic Impatience As Policy
Stiffly reciting the prepared remarks like an uncomfortable school boy, Big Rex said the era of "strategic patience" with Iran is over.
Oh, great. A strategy of strategic impatience? Brilliant!
Trump has no coherent policy, foreign or otherwise, but some people have said nice things about his impetuous bad-boy act -- bombing Syria and Afghanistan, threatening North Korea and Iran, etc. Having a narcissistic personality disorder, he craves praise and turns even the faintest amount of it into an epic personal triumph for himself.
It's sad (SAD!) that Trump's unfocused knee-jerk military reactions now pass for "policy" and distract us from his myriad shortcomings, both foreign and domestic.
Stop feeding the beast!
