As I have noted in response to the latest U.S. government aggressions in
the Middle East, Donald Trump’s short-sighted military actions in Syria
are not based on rational thought but
on emotionalism, his feeling terrible about the children and other
innocent victims of the chemical attack in Syria this week. But this is
purely selective emotionalism, given that he doesn’t seem so concerned
about all the innocent victims of his own drone bombings that he has
been authorizing since he was sworn in as President.
