is his weakness. He believes in two kinds of unilateralism – American exceptionalism (we can go it alone and do whatever we want in our ‘national interest’) – and ‘Trump unilateralism” (Trump can decide by himself what America will do (without consultation from within the country or from allies internationally) just go with his ‘gut’.

The ‘Great Disrupter’ achieves the disruption he is after – occasionally in a peaceful, progressive direction, more often in a bellicose, conservative direction. I celebrate his occasional peaceful progressive moves but understand the danger of Trump unilateralism for the country and the world.

When you think you have no choice but to start a war, think again. Wars promise to be quick, clean and decisive. Wars lie. They cause more problems than they solve, they just won't tell you that beforehand.
