Trump should step down

Russia in American waters and skies. In the election and among trusted people in the administration. What could that mean? Any ideas? No, they’re not there for the burgers, trust me.

As long as the American president stays in the early stages of campaigning we are all exposed to danger. “The leader of the free world” bashing people, parties, networks, calling Washington a swamp, telling the world what a bad country America is. Bashing over half of it’s population. And remember, it doesn’t matter what party he belongs to. You just don’t do that.

In the eyes of the world, he appears weak. Contradicting himself saying he loves America. Every country watched the speech last night, probably wondering, who’s he fooling?

He’s probably strengthening his enemies in their beliefs that he’s a mad man. Making future diplomatic ties even more difficult. And the allies? Do they dare stand by his side?

If the world consisted of America only – fine. Then he could bash his people as much as he likes until a revolution, but there’s others out there. People that doesn’t care what networks he prefer or who did the most mistakes in the past. The common interest is stability in the world and Mr Trump can’t deliver.

The rallies are hurtful to America and the world. But he doesn’t see that, does he? No, it’s just a ego booster. He feels good doing it. People in the crowd are booing and clapping on the right spots. The language he’s able to understand.

Who knew being a president is such a hard job?

I think most people understands that being president is difficult. Its about making friends, stay friends, go together, and work around the clock. Because somewhere there is early morning and new things happen.

But he’s honest. I give him that. He becomes very predictable when speaking his mind on twitter. You kind of know when he’s going to push the button. What he says – he truly believe. Border walls, Muslims out, no refugees, criminal Mexicans, this and that country is bad, FBI is lying. And we all get to see him taking classes in school of life. Learning, step by step, how things really work. In a enlightened perspective.

Most presidents have pretended to know it all. This one don’t. The presidency have become a road of learning. And what else can he do? A country is not a company. It cannot be run solely by a family. Well, he brought a bunch of people whom he trusted. Not necessarily honest and trustworthy people. But they were loyal. Madly loyal. I guess they provided a cense of security to the president. However, if they’d been loyal to their country and it’s people we’d not have so many of them targeted by Russia. We’d not learned “Alternative facts” or learned about strange massacres that never happened. There’s a lot of misguided loyalty. It might work in the corporate world but not in a country.

By surrounding himself with that type of loyalty the truth rarely become presented. With advisers saying “yes” instead of explaining the truth (that may be inconvenient) we all have to go in the same class. Learning as Mr Trump keeps on tweeting his mind.

Welcome out of the shell Mr Trump. Welcome to the reality. Sometimes there is sunshine and sometimes there’s not. No matter what you’re sent to do on this earth, it must be done without blindfold and shields blinding and forgiving in vain.

My question now is, did he learn enough or is he going to jump the button on North Korea?

North Korea and fascism

North Korea never attracted my attention before. I knew next to nothing. Angry leader, communism, weird rules and that was about it. A blank spot on the map. But, I’ve done some studying and the biggest discovery is:

North Korea is a fascist state. People are starving so the leader can build his guns. People executed if they fail to shed tears in morning of previous leaders. People prohibited from their own opinions. And maybe the worst example: People living in fear of a imminent nuclear attack from America – each day for years. Millions of people suffering a horrible leader.

It’s the old fascist recipe for ruling – keep people in fear. Instigate segregation laws or apartheid laws. In the history there have been fears of Jews, Russians, Africans and today Americans, Muslims and so on. Create propaganda. Or “fake news”. Make believe.

Something about North Korea that would profoundly mess with my personality: The speakers everywhere. Playing music when they think you should go to bed or wake up in the morning.  The fusebox would blow for sure. I’ve lived hearing sermons in speakers and I’d take that any day. It’s cultural, it’s given by concern or love or lack of seats in the building. It’s not to annoy anyone.

I’m not sure the North Koreans want to be free. I don’t think they understand the concept of freedom. How can you, if you never saw it?

 

 

100 quite unbelievable days

The White House opened it doors to a bunch of people that didn’t mind bring the lies with them. Hard to feed the American people but still, with some success. We learned words like “alternative fact” and “fake news”. The worlds local media scratched their heads and didn’t really know if it was for real.

I guess we all hoped for the country to come together. But on the contrary, the campaign-like rallies kept going on and the people got more divided. Races, colors, religion – everything got infected. Actually to the extent that two Sikh Indian men got shot and killed. Mistaken for being Muslims.

Then the demonstrations, rallies, clashes, trouble in the streets. You Tube got flooded with movies showing racial attacks with political pretext. Trump didn’t notice, did he?

I guess Trump’s been busy Twittering about all the bad stuff Obama did. I don’t see the need for competition though. But he doesn’t seem able to let go. Or is it a smoke screen for all the Russian connections in the administration?

The worlds local media really thrived discovering how far the Russians got in to the American establishment. But Trump didn’t notice, did he? No, he cried about getting his “wires tapped”. Which led back to Russia. As the voting fraud. As the daily visit in the skies of Alaska lately. People denounced them selves or got fired.

I, myself, hoped for the administration to focus more on domestic matters, but that didn’t happen. American troops moved to Poland and the Korean peninsula. There’s fighting going on in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Yemen.  And the tension in the world have risen way to much. Hopefully American troops won’t be put in harms way.

Much of what have been said during the Trump campaign have been reversed. Opinions have turned around completely. NATO being “obsolete” is one really bad thing to say. Without friends – what would you do? Well, Russian boots would probably go west. I’m sure Putin has every option on the table. As always.

So far, we’ve seen one man going from ignorance to a little bit of more knowledge about the world. The more he learn the greater will America do during these four years of adventure. Money isn’t the glue that keeps nations together. It’s relations.

The father of all wars

I’ll say what the leaders of Europe don’t: Trump should have stayed with the “America first”-thing. The minute he abandoned that, the world became a much unsafer place. The “go alone” is not a strategy. It’s stupidity. One can justify just about anything, but acting alone when it comes to hostile acts is stupid.

Mr Trump seem to want to take on any loose cannon out there and there’s a few of them. Diplomacy doesn’t seem to be an option as he acts emotional. That is exactly what a businessman would do. Conquer or withdraw. And he’s not the withdrawing kind of guy.

Reports are saying that Europeans live in fear because of this. Do we? Well, as a Swede in a country that stayed out of war for over 200 years now, no. I don’t live in fear. Not for myself or for my country. I do, however fear, that all of this comes with a price. That America will have to pick up the bill and it’s not only about dollars. Lives will be at stake.

Living with the notion that “we have the greatest military in the world” works for any country until tested. Even if it might be true, it’s dangerous to live by that statement.

In the beginning of Trumps presidential career I was smiling at the willingness to salute the military. (Someone have taught him how to do it now) I got the feeling that he was most eager to work close to them. Boy, was I right about that.

 

 

Sarin gas in Syria

A lot of countries are present in Syria. Those that are not keep their eyes open. I bet even the Eskimos have their tellies tuned in to keep up with developments. Still, someone decides to bomb children with chemical weapons.  Possibly sarin gas, says experts. At least 58 people dead. 11 of them are children.

Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad is said to be the one behind the attack. He’s been found guilty of chemicals attacks three times before. He should be brought to justice. War crimes are also crimes!

If you were a Muslim…

What if people were looking at you with suspicion. You know what they’re thinking. You’re a terrorist. Or one to be. They can tell by your looks, even if you sometimes are a Sikh from India. They know. In fact, they often know you better than you do.

You are probably a criminal. The last thing you printed was probably a bomb making manual. Oh yes, the people around you can tell. Have you been to a hard ware store lately?How many AK’s do you have in the closet?

They sometimes asks you to go home to your country. Even if you were born here. Even if there never were another country. Even if this is your country that you proudly serve – you don’t belong.

Your religion teach hatred. Every now and then a Christian approaches with the truth. And you learn that they see you as a threat. Christianity is so much better. That you’ll understand when they praise the second amendment.

As you approach the security at an airport, did you budget for several hours of vetting? By now you must know that they use “inexperienced” personnel, that regrettably makes mistakes for hours. Well, if it comes out, that is.


Who ever you are reading this, no matter whom you’ve voted for or what ever religion you represent – don’t make people suffer. Don’t think your life, beliefs or politicians matters more. Stay human. Be an equal.
