The IDF Defies Israeli Civilian Bellicosity! 
Every Army has a master but not every master has an army.
Israel’s formidable citizen army reports to the Minister of Defense. However, in the past several weeks, IDF generals have had the incredible courage to defy their civilian handlers.In particular, General Moshe Yaalon, a conservative former Chief of Staff, has supported a group of other generals who have protested against Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman’s harsh criticisms of the IDF’s judicious, temperate handling of Palestinian terrorists.
In the recent NY Times article by Isabel Kershner, May 298,2016, she quotes the following:
“The military chiefs, Mr Avieneri [Hebrew University Professor] said, are ‘not wishy-washy liberals.’ The fissure is not between Israeli right and left, he said, but between ‘strategic hawks’ or pragmatists who put Israel’s security first, and ‘ideological hawks’ who are more concerned with historical rights and Jewish nationalism.” 
The article goes on to explain how these senior military officers, along with the distinguished directors of the Mossad and Shin Bet, had refused to attempt an attack against the Iranian nuclear facility—as suggested by Bibi. Furthermore, Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot, the chief of staff of the Israeli military, informed a high school audience that he would punish an Israeli soldier who killed a 13 year old Palestinian girl holding a pair of scissors.
In contrast to the barbaric, ‘chicken-hawk’, Romanian-born [Moldava], Israeli Defense Minister, Avigdor Lieberman, the military and intelligence chiefs have urged a policy of restraint and proportionality with respect to potential enemies.
The fissure between the IDF/ Mossad/Shin Bet and it’s civilian warlords has opened up so much that Maj. Gen. Yair Golan, the deputy chief of the IDF, gave a speech on “Holocaust Remembrance Day” saying that right wing pronouncements of the Israeli civilian military leaders reminded him of the rise of NAZI GERMANY.

That is some in-your-face-truth!
The relentless bombing of the Gaza Strip by IDF jets were the spitting image of Nazi Stuka dive-bombers destroying Guernica during the Spanish Civil War.
As you have gathered from my present and past blogs, the largest cry for greater military ruthlessness comes not from the Sabras [native born Israelis]; but from those nouveau-riche Americans who held onto two passports refusing to serve their country of birth—America.

Take Ron Dermer, like the Democratic Miami shrew, Debbie Wasserstein, he is the personification of the low-class Yiddish refugees who were fortunate enough to settle in America and become part of the middle class.To be born or grow up in Miami is a code-word for corruption, entitlement and self-aggrandizement. In turn, these hyphenated Israelis, born and nurtured in America, literally want to become more Israeli than those who had settled in Palestine over one hundred years ago.
I believe that in time, the leaders of the IDF, Mossad, Shin Bet will decide that their civilian overlords are not only incompetent; but exceedingly dangerous for the future of the state of Israel. I would not be surprised if some day soon, the Israeli/military community will arise from their imposed moral torpor and strike a blow against their civilian overlords.

The justification for this type of military/intelligence coup is quite rational.The IDF and its military officers are the true representatives of the Israeli people. Every abled bodied individual [man, woman, LGBT]  must serve two years in the IDF. Afterwards, they must remain on reserve status until the age of 40 plus years old.The IDF is the true expression of the political will of the Israelis. 
Who are the only exceptions to this mandatory rule? The orthodox Jews who pray all day long in a hovel of pseudo-religiosity exempt from military service.
I have no idea, other than the fact that they are inveterate cowards who hide behind the Torah to mumble prayers of little consequences and greater absurdity. To make matters worse, they deny the existence of the State of Israel; while at the same time, receiving countless financial and political benefits.

In the long run, Israel will do well because it’s primary asset are the brains of exceptional IDF soldiers who have created world-leading cyber-tech/cyberwar capabilities like Unit 8200. Israel could become the model for a cybernation which will become encapsulated in a womb of internet protection.Yet, Israeli/Jewish hubris could spell the downfall of Israel.
If Israel truly believes that it is the “chosen land” for the “chosen people”..… they will inevitably be “chosen” for self-destruction. Remember: Israel needs the precious water they do not possess and must obtain from Turkey by way of Syria, Lebanon and Jordan.

State Department Inspector General [IG] Claims ex- Sec. State Hillary Clinton DID NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO SET UP HER PRIVATE SERVER!!!
When the State Department Inspector General [IG] condemns Hillary’s use of a private email server, then you know HC is in real trouble. Moreover, the IG also ruled that she had never asked for permission to have a private server; and had she asked, she would have been denied the right to have one.In simple terms, Hillary committed a federal crime intentionally.
That’s right!

She knew from past experiences [WH, Senator, POTUS Wife, Secret Service, etc.] that she was not allowed to use or create a private server [let alone one in a Colorado bathtub]. Therefore, as she was wont to do, she ignored the proscriptions and tried to bypass the federal laws and decided to break them, anyway. 
As a full blown sociopath, HC thought that she above the intricate systems of checks and balances that pervade the State Dept.’s tightly kept security systems. Once again, she insisted on breaking federal rules.

There is very little to add to what is already known about these moral dwarfs called the Clintons. The missing element in most of their collective transgressions has been judicial probity. Other than an impeachment for lying about sexual transgressions in the WH by Bill, nothing serious had been implemented to stop the onslaught of Clintons’ ravenous greed and skewed political ambitions.
Now, the State Dept. has courageously stepped forward in the guise of the IG to stop Hillary’s inane, childish but exceedingly dangerous private phone activities. Hillary has slipped through the cracks of temperance and judicious behavior when she blatantly lied about the fact that she had received no “Classified-Marked Documents”.
The truth is far uglier than she might want to state publicly. She has, over the years at the State Dept., effectively compromised METHODS AND SOURCES of highly sensitive information which reflexively belonged in the categories of TOP SECRET[S] and above .
She  knew it!
For over two or more decades, I have refused to receive a TS clearance. The reason was and is simple.I realized that whatever assignment I had overseas, I knew that if I were to be questioned by the opposition forces [ie. Syrian Intelligence, Jordanian military, Mossad, etc.], I could honestly say that I knew nothing and wanted to learn less than nothing.
Special credit should go to former Assistant Secretary of Diplomatic Security, Eric Boswell, a distinguished Foreign Service Officer [FSO], who bravely stated on Fox News that “Hillary had a non-secured blackberry which she used in highly sensitive, non-secured areas of the seventh floor”.
She had committed a crime, not once or not twice but many times more.

I make my last and final plea to FBI Director James Comey and his boss, Attorney General, Loretta Lynch. Please execute the law as mandated in such a blatant travesty of national security. For me, this is the defining case for our internal judicial system in the 21st century. 
Will they do what the law requires them to do? 
And convict her?
Or, will they kowtow to POTUS who summarily and illegally dismissed the severity of Hillary’s transgressions? We live in a cauldron of political upheaval.The center of the storm is the indictment of Hillary. That will decide the course of our nation for the next half-a-century… or more.
There is an old Hindu proverb:
“Dictators ride to and fro upon tigers from which they dare not dismount.”

Debbie Does Bernie!
By now, most of us have heard about Miami’s Finest: Ms.Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s tongue lashing against Bernie and his so-called,“rambunctious protestors.”
I don’t really know Bernie nor Debbie; but, I certainly know when perfidious, unconscionable statements are made. Debbie has entered the world of verbal abuse against Bernie and his youthful campaigners. What she did by scolding Bernie was to highlight the underlying corruption surging through the ossified DNC.
As I predicted, Trump would come to terms with the RNC because he understands negotiations and the importance of mobilizing affect in the service of attaining success. However, Debbie,a loudmouth Miami shrew, spews forth words that belie the hypocrisy and the internal bias against any candidate except the Billary [buy one,get one free]. 

In effect, she has inadvertently fellated Bernie by publicly arousing his moral sense of decency and probity when she decided to demonstrate her inveterate bias for Hillary Clinton. Trump was and is right when he points out what misogynists both Bill and Hillary are ---sexually exploiting women at will-- without any consequences. Bill Cosby, the highly touted comedian, is now facing the Pennsylvania judiciary system for having done less than the Billary duo against scores of innocent women.

Fortunately, Bernie has the ‘balls’ to challenge the rigged Democratic electoral system. He maintains that he will fight all the way to the DNC convention. Then, he publicly supported Tim Canova, a law professor at Nova Southeastern University, in order to unseat Debbie as the chairwoman of the  DNC.
I agree with Tim Canova’s recent statement: “She [Deb] has been a very out-of-touch political insider and she has not been representing her constituents very well.” [Alan Rappeport, AP News, May24, 2016.]

Canova has fought to strengthen the Glass-Steagall Act. He has been active in trying to change the Federal Reserve system which had contributed to “the Big Short”  financial crisis of 2008. Canova opposes big money predatory lending. He, like Bernie, is fighting against the porous Trans-Pacific Partnership deal. As a side note, he argues for Medical Marijuana—unlike Billary.
I urge the grassroots of the Democratic Party to blow away Deb before she does Bernie harm.
Remember, my dear friends, pornography is in the mind of the beholder. However, when the mind transforms into an action mode, then the lewdness of the act is clearly apparent. Miami Deb has committed unspeakable acts of treachery and stupidity against Brooklyn Bern. 

So now is the time, to rid ourselves of this noisome creature.
Away with Deb.Unseat her ASAP!
In the words of the famous German writer, Heinrich Heine:

“When the hero goes off the stage [Bernie], the clowns come in [Deb, Billary].”

The Water Wars are Heating up on the Colorado River! Damn the dams and let the rivers flow naturally.
In a May 20th NY Times Op Ed, writer Abraham Lustgarten, implores the Dept.of Interior to eliminate most of the dams built in the 20th century on the Colorado River:
“Many of the West’s big dams— Utah’s Glen Canyon Dam; Nevada’s Hoover Dam; Arizona’s Coolidge Dam—have been proven far less efficient and effective than their champions for water reclamation had hoped. They altered the ecosystems and disrupted fisheries. They have left taxpayers saddled with debt”.

When I wrote the novel, State of Emergency, I warned the American people of the impending water wars that would occur over the Colorado River which could no longer provide the necessary waters to Arizona, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, and California.The river was becoming depleted of its asset—water.
I posited that the federal government would have to intercede on the state and local level to arbitrate and even mandate the proper allocation of water required in these and other states.
“The losses of water [through the aforementioned dams] undercut the longstanding benefits of damming rivers like the Colorado, and may now be making the West’s water crisis WORSE.”
Despite the imminent, massive shortage of water resulting from the dams and climate change; four states will construct new dams as well as implement water diversion projects. All of this to partake in a greater percentage of water for their respective populations-- before flowing downstream.

This is a recipe for major water wars among the following states: Utah,Arizona,Colorado,New Mexico,Nevada,California and possibly even Mexico. For the most part, dam-building was a 20th century attempt to save water and redirect it to the major population centers in each of the respective states affected by draught.
Yet, dams have proven to be a major source of water loss. Facts: about 160 BILLION GALLONS of water evaporate from the surface of Lake Powell and another 120 BILLION GALLONS leak out of the bottom of the canyon into the earth fissures. Therefore, the amount of water lost by the Glen Canyon Dam [280 Billion Gallons] amounts to the equivalent of one year’s flow of the entire COLORADO RIVER.
Very little research has been dedicated to hydrology. Yet, the micro and macro study of water is critical to our future survival. There are the more obvious causes of water depletion which will have to be modified, curtailed or stopped completely. These include mining for minerals [phosphate]; animal husbandry; deforestation; fracking; oil-well digging; watering lawns, etc.
Clearly, I don’t propose to know all the answers. I do know that since I wrote my novel some twenty years ago, water wars have erupted in Syria; Egypt/Ethiopia [Nile River]; South East Asia [Vietnam and China over the Mekong Delta]; Middle East; Tibet/China; India/China.

Preserving water is our biggest national security problem in the next fifty years. Stop eating and you can live for over a week. Stop drinking water and your life is bracketed by days.

DNC/Hillary: Feel the Bern! Nevada is Prelude to Chopin’s “Revolutionary Etude.”
By now, everyone is aware that Bernie Sanders, like Trump, created a political revolution.
Nothing surprising there!
However, I have said from the very beginning of the Democratic race that Bernie’s supporters will justifiably resent and protest the highly rigged electoral process of the DNC. When I had first attended Bernie’s rally in Warner, NH almost a year ago, I felt as if I had travelled back in time to the 1960’s when the youth erupted into major spasms of protests all over this country due to the Vietnam War and other highly flammable social issues.

In the past half-a-century, the grand children of those 1960’s protestors burst into a volcanic eruption of protest and discontent directed at the corruption personified by the perfidious Clintons and the DNC.
Nothing was more pathetic than watching an unintelligible, intellectually slovenly Debbie Wasserman Shultz, reprimand a Brooklyn Jew, Bernie, for having led a broad spectrum of our present day youth—White, Black, Brown, Yellow, Christians, Muslims, Jews, Atheists, Hindus and whatever—into a melee of discontent in Nevada.
Too bad, Debbie!

It is imperative that Bernie’s followers should continue to protest an exceedingly venal Democratic Party, which had not an iota of decency or concern for transparency or due process. The DNC simply wanted to ram through the nomination of a potential felon [Hillary].Those who protested against Bern were themselves caricatures of fiduciary malfeasance and liberal decay.
Witness the whore house piano player, Senator Harry Reid [D-Nevada], who invokes the palaver of temperance and rectitude to the Bern followers.
Reid, a paid-in-full Democratic Senator representing the Nevada-gambling–casino-mob, gives advice on etiquette? Or, Senator Barbara Boxer [D-Calif.], a Brooklyn born Jewess, who was implicated in 1992 for “House banking scandal”, utters nonsensical words concerning ‘ethics/morals’ to Bernie and his followers.
The day of the professional politician is over.Those who rose through the Republican/Democratic ranks should find a real job where their futures will not be paid for by the American taxpayer.
These professional panderers have met a new generation of voters on both sides of the political spectrum who are sick and tired of these high paid welfare recipients receiving all kinds of funds and entitlements, not available to us, taxpayers.
We, taxpayers, have witnessed the detritus of three presidents: Clinton, Bush Jr, and Obama—and we are angry.
Unjustifiable wars and financial collapse have earmarked the past thirty years. This must end!

Our POTUS flies around the world on our taxpayer dollars mumbling inanities to foreign leaders, while our brave men and women are fighting brush fires all the way from Africa to China and South East Asia.
We are rudderless; yet, we watch/listen as Obama proclaims all kinds of declarations concerning LGBT rights[bathrooms] and health care [Obamacare]—almost as a distractions from the primary concern of:
“Quo Vadis Domini?”
Where forth do we go, our Lord?
While we await some semblance of an answer, Chopin’s Revolutionary Etude will continue to play in both the Democratic and Republican concert halls.

“The foremost art of kings is the power to endure hatred.”

England Should Exit Right from the EU Farce on their June 23 Referendum: Vote Brexit!

Similarly, Scotland should leave the United Kingdom and Reinstate Scottish Independence!
Once again, Obama has travelled around the world in a completely unnecessary, costly swan song for which we, American taxpayers, have to pay a significant amount of our earnings. Obama began his presidential tenure with an over- abundance of personal entitlement, arrogance, and ignorance of domestic/foreign policy issues. Yet, like all sociopaths from untutored backgrounds, he played out all of the games of state, required by his handlers, the infamous CIA Hefe, DCI John Brennan [Valerie Jarrett].
Obama has the audacity to lecture the present Republican nominee, Donald Trump, about the need for sobriety and accountability. This to a Billionaire who has accomplished, in his life time, more than Obama will never be able to attain in all his fictional accounts of his past, present, and future exploits.
This most recent Obama excursion overseas stands out in particular. Accompanied by every banker, Secretary of Treasury in the past ten years, Obama went to England and lobbied the good Anglo-Saxon people about the need to remain in the EU.
Of course, he forgot to mention that England has very little, if nothing, to gain from remaining in the completely dysfunctional Disney Land [EU] created by both the French and Germany in order to avoid a possible WWIII between the two countries.
In fact, Obama did not reveal that the major reason for his insistence on England remaining in the terrorist-infested-Brussels-based-NATO/EU headquarters: our corrupt American bankers are too lazy to reconstruct essentially a new banking system within each of the 26 remaining countries that would compromise the future EU, once Brexit occurs.
Once again, Scotland has the good fortune to determine whether it should exit the United Kingdom. As many of your know by now, Scotland has provided the necessary cannon fodder for the numerous wars that England had initiated over the past several centuries.The intentional sacrifice of those brave Scottish soldiers was termed ‘forlorn hope’. The Scots were always sent up to the front lines; so that they would be the first ones killed in battle, allowing the British officers a greater chance to survive the outcome of the ensuing battles.
Scotland has a rich and storied tradition and it should never have allowed itself to be subjugated beneath the petticoats of the German born Kings/Queens of England, transformed cleverly into the Regal Windsor Dynasty.
The recent terrorist attacks in both Paris and Belgium which should have been easily prevented by a competent EU intelligence service, underscores the lack of interconnectivity that exists among all the EU countries. 
As I have repeatedly stated over the past years, there is no formal EU. They have no police force, intelligence service, nor military.  The EU is nothing more than a massive bureaucracy of inept functionaries supplanting another group of useless national bureaucrats from all the attending countries.
The only energetic countries consists of a central core: Netherlands-Lichtenstein-Germany- Nordic countries—which fund and sustain the poverty ridden southern tier countries: Greece-Spain-Portugal-Italy which are all essentially in financial bankruptcy.The time has come for a major movement of secession of countries, states and counties all over the world.
The centrality of government power has become too cumbersome and dysfunctional to be able to do anything other than sustain its useless self. Historic example: the present conflict in the Syria/Iraq is a recognition that the Sykes-Pico Agreements after WWI were dangerous and extremely lethal.
Now, let us anoint new leaders all over the world who understand that the over-complexity of un-natural political systems leads inevitably to self-destruction and massive killings, civil war, and…refugees. In other words, NOT SUSTAINABLE.
Therefore, Syria should never have been created by the French. Iraq should never have been coalesced by Winston Churchill for the privilege of collecting oil revenues amidst the Kurds, Sunnis, and Shi’ites.
Our pseudo-intellectuals in the Washington Think Tanks enjoy quoting Winston Churchill and his blathering words about expanding the British Empire and the need to maintain European Union against a presumed Russian [former Soviet] threat.  
Yet none of our idiot savants realized that Churchill had been diagnosed by his neurologist, Lord Moran, as ‘senile demented’ during the peak of WWII and afterwards.
The British Lord Arthur Balfour said the following:
“Winston has written four volumes about himself and called it ‘World Of Crisis”.
Britain: it’s time to exit the Tartuffe farce,entitled “THE EU”!

Good luck and God Speed!

Hillary Clinton: Pay Attention!
Two Female Ex-Presidents- one of Brazil [Dilma Rousseff] and the other of Argentina [Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner] Indicted!
Congratulations to South American Democracy. Very rarely, do we read about criminal prosecution of political leaders. Even more absent is the presence of women leaders in the forefront of corruption.However, now both Dilma Rousseff and Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner are implicated as the most corrupt duo in Latin America.
Thanks to the citizens and judiciary of both countries, these women are receiving their just desert. I believed that women, men, LGBTs and any sexual variation of the aforementioned are subject to corruption on a major scale if given the opportunity.

I could give very elaborate psychosexual explanations. Yet, let us just leave the reason to equal opportunity. Corruption knows no gender nor ethnic group. Witness our own political elite, both men and women, who flounder amidst the fallen dollars of bribes.
Politicians, by nature, are panderers. Panderers are incapable of creating their own reality without asking favors from others to which they become eventually dependent. Corruption is simply the financial instrument for enhancing that politician’s dependency. Neither Obama nor Hillary are/were immune. Not even the Holy Prophet, Bernie Sanders, is above such dependency.
There is within each of these people the need to feed their egos at all cost because they feel they are special and just.
Clearly, they are neither.
What, then, do we make of Trump, the self-proclaimed billionaire? His hands are not without stain. His continuous assertions of self-created wealth is, at best suspect, if not exaggerated.
Yet, each man/woman has to determine how much corruption they will incur to achieve their stated or unconscious goals. For a career politician, process and pandering is the basis of their m├ętier. There is no way around those two facts. How much of each does a politician have to do, is strictly up to their moral, if that exists, conscious.
In the case of Brazil’s Dilma Rousseff, she was a harden terrorist from the day she nestled in her Bulgarian father’s Communist arms. She knew no limits to what she could or would do; even if that entailed killing innocent people or kidnapping an American ambassador. For Dilma, corruption of her soul was genetically/ideologically predetermined.
On the other hand, Lady Kirchner of Argentina had an incredible mentor in her former husband, ex-President of Argentina, Nestor Kirchner whose days of eating at the trough of mendacity started way before he was the former Governor of Santa Cruz Province.
This of course is not to say that both Kirchners did not have their own folie a deux fixation with illegal bribes and fraud. I do not want to take anything away from them.
Now, Americans have ex-Sec State Hillary Clinton, whose sole achievement has been prevarication at all times, occasions,even when eating her slop at the trough of corruption.She knows no bounds to her pathological personality.

She is, suis generis, a case of constant faux-pas, lies, and financial irregularities to such an extent that neither she, nor her enabling husband, Bill Clinton, are either concerned about the consequences of their respective actions because nothing has ever been done about their inveterate pathologies.
  As I have stated before, the Clintons are the landmark for American justice.
Will it accord itself accordingly?
Or, will justice assume a blind eye to their collective hauteur and incursions against this great Republic—past, present and future?

I have plead more than once for a modicum of justice to be meted out by the FBI, Attorney General and POTUS. If such may be the case, then the Republic will be saved in its entirety.
If either Hillary or Bill escape the consequences of their mendicant ways then travesty will enshroud the Republic for decades.This is a time when America must show its true self to the world.

Are we a just and noble country founded on laws that no one, neither king or POTUS, can defy?
Or are we a lame banana republic to which both the brave people of Argentina and Brazil can mock?
That is the question that the Republic must answer—once and for all. Justice must be blind. Yet it cannot be so impaired that it does not see the actions of Hillary and Bill flaunting their ways in front of our Republic.To all us veterans who fought more times than I can count, I pray that America, the beautiful, remain as the torch of justice in a world rapidly changing from bad to good.
Are we going to be part of that goodness? Or are we fixed in our own self-destructive ways?

Your silence is deafening!
James Tracy needs your support, he is suing the University that fired him.

Trump Subjugates the RNC and Eviscerates Republican Poseurs!
Bernie Sanders will now Trump the Democratic Convention and Dislodge Hillary Clinton!
As I have predicted from the very beginning,  Trump would singlehandedly eviscerate all seventeen Republican presidential candidates including the chosen few; as well as, subjugate/control the RNC. Similarly, I predicted that Bernie Sanders, a comparable political outsider would eventually “Trump” Billary, the designated presidential nominee for the Democratic Party.
What I want now is to create a contested Democratic Convention which had been originally intended for Trump. I strongly believe that Hillary, a creature of deception and corruption, has always had a huge negative perception throughout her forty year political career as being ‘untrustworthy’ and ‘unscrupulous’.

Oh, what a pity!
That flesh devouring perfidiousness that she harbors throughout her personae is not sufficient to counteract that impending force of young Democratic activists who feel that the single criteria of her being a woman, rates very little merit.Her history of gross miscalculations, poor judgement, and ineptness transcends any consideration that she can be a viable opponent against Trump. 
The polls and pundits have been consistently wrong about Trump and his nascent revolutionary movement. Similarly, I take comfort from the fact that the official narrative concerning Bernie’s impending  loss to Hillary is both premature and incorrect. Having questioned numerous young and old Democrats who,like we Republicans, are completely sick of the establishment, especially one denoted by the Clinton name.
The 2016 Democratic Convention which will be held in Philadelphia, the city of brotherly love, should be rife with consternation, if not strife between the Democratic establishment  projected by its flimsily constructed avatar, the “Super Delegates,” and Bernie’s young hot bloods.Nothing riles the political novitiate more than the notion that their youthful enthusiasm will be automatically negated by a presumptive collection of Democratic deadbeats: former congressmen; senators; governors; city officials [superdelegates]— as well as the names of every person who had died in Chicago, NYC—over the past fifty years.
The pundits declare that it will be close to impossible for Bernie to stop the onslaught of important Democratic party personages who support Hillary unconditionally.
Do they think that anyone, especially college students, really care about Obama, Michelle, Bill Clinton, Chelsea, or even African/American/Hispanic surrogates?
My answer is categorially, NO!

These millennials have been socialized to compete with nonsensical verbiage by negating those inane words with a simple press of the ‘delete’ button. Similarly, the alternative media on the Democratic side has become active and vociferous about the fact that Bernie, like Trump, represents a political revolution, albeit on the socialist democratic side.
  Trump has said on numerous occasions that he admires Bernie Sanders for being an ‘outsider’, trying to dissolve the ‘rigged political system of the Democratic Party’.I think it would behoove Bernie to reciprocate this mutual admiration without having to denigrate him in anyway. 

In my own counter-intuitive reasoning, I am happy to see Trump stream to victory after a very hard fought fight against the ossified,moribund Republican establishment [which had created 66,000 anti-Trump TV ads].
However, the political revolution is not over. 
We have to wait till Trump starts to pick both his domestic and foreign policy teams.
A warning is in place!

Trump: Please don’t repeat the mistakes of the past, avoid associating with the neocons and former Bush Jr acolytes. Trump, you have already been seen extending the peace branch to Zalmay  Khalizad [former Ambassador to Iraq/Afghanistan], one of the most despicable CIA operatives who helped initiate the 9/1 “stand down” as well as the Iraq War along with his W’s cohorts. 

Now, Mr. Trump, you must show those of us who have supported you that you know how to choose a uniquely different type of team. It would be wise to follow the words of Napoleon Bonaparte:
“The heart of a statesman should be in his head.”

Kevin Costner’s “Mr. Brooks”: A Psychological Thriller, Brilliantly Delineates Man’s Addiction to Killing!
In line with my previous blog about the nondescript nature of the terrorist mind, I rediscovered a 2007 movie which delineates, in a highly textured dramatic format, the nature of the killing addiction. This addiction can beset a very ordinary, successful, upwardly mobile businessman portrayed by Kevin Costner. Costner [both the lead actor and producer] plays off his superego, William Hurt, when they argue about the psychological benefits of random killing of anonymous persons.
The premise of this dark psychological thriller is that anyone is capable of becoming addicted to killing people—businessmen, drug addicts and even police women [played wonderfully by Demi Moore]. Clearly, I don’t condone any type of killing per se. Yet I also understand, all too well, what the Director Kathy Bigelow [Hurt Locker] wrote on the preface of her war film: “Man is addicted to war!”
One can place any rationale in front of that addiction: religion, nationalism, ideology, or whatever—it really does not matter, man will continue to kill another man because he wants, needs, or is compelled to kill. Neither religion nor psychotherapy [nor drugs] will alleviate that compulsion.

In the film, Costner tries to break his genetic addiction for the need to go out at night and randomly kill someone. I could say that Mr. Brooks is mentally ill. However, many of the mass killers I have admitted to psychiatric hospitals were never really insane [except for legal purposes to keep them out of jail].
Stalin correctly stated that one person’s death is a tragedy but 100 million people dying, as in the span between WWI and WWII,  is a statistic. The military codifies the need for killing; and often, they are not very good at killing in cold blood. The reason: the military wants to affect as many deaths as they can without exposing themselves to harm’s way.
Now, witness the panoply of wars that our young men/women are involved in without any constitutional justification –Africa, Middle East, Eastern Europe— It does not matter what the real reason for war is; other than the fact that it must occur periodically, if not perpetually. 
Korea was the antecedent of useless wars, wasting lives without any real justification; other than the personal rationale that it was our war. As if each subsequent war from Vietnam onward had a proprietary interest with the corresponding generation of men who wanted to serve, or more importantly, wanted to serve in a death defying experience.We can talk about the adrenalin rush, or the endorphins rushing through the gyri of the brain; but that only provides a subtext to man’s desire and need to kill himself as well as others.
Pacifism is not the antithesis of war-like. It is the enhancer of the recognition that war is necessary by declaring that the pacifist recognizes that obvious truism; but, he/she does not want to be personally harmed by the consequences of war. Pacifism does not address the addiction part of man’s bellicosity. So what can we expect from our future leaders, most of whom have never witnessed the bloody chaos/mayhem of what is ‘considered a moral war’.
I will end with the English clergyman Thomas Fuller’s words:
“We could be cowards, if we had courage enough.”
