It would be smarter to ask exactly who leaked comments that were supposedly--and that's a big assed supposedly--said in a classified briefing. This will most likely be exposed as bull****.

He tweetstorms this, but if you follow them down, he lays out the best possible and, finally, ultimate justification for Trump never gaining the office of the presidency.

I have to say, I'm no Republican, nor Democrat, but I'm damned thankful that he could lay out such an inassailable case against that Circus Peanut clown.

The same JEB! Bush who thinks going into Iraq was a great deal, thinks that we got a lot out of it, and wants to establish a no-fly zone in Syria? **** JEB! Bush and every single one of his advisors.

Escaping all of that for a moment, nuclear politics & warfare is nowhere near the same discussion as traditional warfare.

This was a pretty good book on how Eisenhower more or less fell into nuclear policy and set the stage for the next several decades.
