THE ROAD AHEAD

What does it mean for the world that John Bolton has been sacked/resigned?

The world is safer but does it signify a change of Trump’s aggressive regime change policy toward Venezuela, Iran, Cuba & others?

With Pompeo remaining a snake still threatens to strike.
THE ROAD AHEAD

The answer to what lies in the future is unclear.

Trump is amoral down to his filthy off-white socks & is terminally quixotic.

He has only one principle: self-aggrandizement.

This means he'll follow any foreign policy that significantly boosts his popularity.
THE ROAD AHEAD

Trump is desperate to win in 2020.

Not because he wants to continue his phony mission to make America great again but because it would create a massive dent in his ego if he didn't.

His enemies would be ecstatic.

He cannot bear the thought of these occurring.
THE ROAD AHEAD

With Trump everything is always about him.

Trump is infinitely self-obsessed.

Being wholly amoral causes any criticism to drive him into a rage & any contradiction is an unconscionable & irrepairable slight.

Trump’s universe is that of the eternal spoiled baby.
THE ROAD AHEAD

If Trump thinks making peace with Iran will make him more popular & get him an ego-lollipop & so win in 2020 he will make peace with Iran.

This would drive such as John Bolton into an incandescent fury of course as it is against every principle neocons hold dear.
THE ROAD AHEAD

Those such as John Bolton believe in total war without compromise to eliminate all trace of entities & systems that do not bow down to US power, no matter what it takes.

They believe implicitly in the right of the USA to use its vast power to the absolute limit.
THE ROAD AHEAD

For such as John Bolton all enemies must be held permanently at arm’s length until they are either totally destroyed or totally compliant to US demands.

Iran was never going to agree to US demands, therefore for Bolton & his ilk it must therefore be destroyed.
THE ROAD AHEAD

With Bolton gone Trump still has one remaining devil whispering in his ear.

That devil is of course Mike Pompeo.

Pompeo is a sophist, a self-confessed CIA-trained liar & Neocon warhawk only marginally less rabid than Bolton.

But capable of being extremely sly.
THE ROAD AHEAD

Due to the above the road ahead is uncertain.

However, it is just possible that even through Trump’s thick moronic skull he sees the regime change policy he was encouraged to pursue by Bolton & Pompeo is dead in the water.

This is our one very tentative hope...
THE ROAD AHEAD

Trump may have dimly realized that Iran is utterly immune to his demands, sanctions & threats & stands ready to face the US bully squarely come what may.

He may decide that in order to make things look better for him in 2020 he has to parlay for peace.

Maybe...
THE ROAD AHEAD

Trump will likely choose smaller targets for low level warfare from here on being no peacenik but 100% amoral seeking only for self.

Cuba may well feel the brunt of this bully’s attention now. Trump needs a Granada after his several Vietnams.

He needs a victory.
THE ROAD AHEAD

A peace victory in North Korea looks unlikely as Kim Jong-un is as wily as they come.

Jong-un will use the considerable skills of his advisers to weave circles round the geopoltically moronic Trump who listens to no one.

A victory there looks unlikely.
THE ROAD AHEAD

Trump’s apparent willingness to meet with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani indicates a change in stance may be in the air.

With Bolton gone Trump can act more freely on Iran.

However what of Pompeo?

What of that ever-smiling, ever-lying snake in the grass?
THE ROAD AHEAD

Pompeo is a hawk to his bloody talons, no one should ever doubt it.

But Pompeo has a strain of the same self-serving & terminally amoral nature as Trump, plus he has an evangelical mission to drive him.

Pompeo seems able to make sly, chameleon-like changes.
THE ROAD AHEAD

Keep in mind the video of Pompeo chortling about how the @CIA lies & cheats to an audience recently.

How Christian was the mentality Pompeo exhibited then?

It evinced a clear willingness to be underhand & devious when the occasion demands it.

Trump demands it.
THE ROAD AHEAD

Trump has said Pompeo is the only person he doesn’t argue with.

This is almost certainly because Pompeo uses two faces at all times.

As the ultimate sophist he can make black look white semantically & visa versa at will... & keep smiling w/ a knife at his back.
THE ROAD AHEAD

The ingratiating toad that is Mike Pompeo has an inner rattlesnake however.

He can plunge the knife in with a beaming, inocuous smile on his lips.

Trump would be well advised to learn more concerning the infamous Machiavelli in relation to his "buddy" Pompeo.
THE ROAD AHEAD

The road ahead is mist enshrouded.

We should see a little more of the route if Trump meets Rouhani.

Will there be a change re. Venezuela? Will Guaido be given the bum’s rush?

It is all in the lap of the gods.

At least with Bolton gone we travel more hopefully.
