Saudi Arabia
, South Korea, Japan and Taiwan
with a H-bombs for starters. And without NATO a dozen countries in eastern
Europe will feel they must have thermonuclear weapons to protect themselves
from the tyranny of Trump's like minded dictator Vladimir Putin.

​Like "I love war" and "I know more about Isis than the Generals do". The
fact that the closest Trump has ever come to combat himself is being in a
military school marching band when he was a kid does not decrease my
unease.  ​

​And Trump wants a escalation in tensions with China, a much more important
country than Russia.​ Stalin normalized relations with Hitler and the
result was a invasion of Poland and the start of World War 2.

​And if that could be accomplished through negotiations with Russia as
Clinton wanted that would be wonderful.

​Those boots on the ground have held the peace in Europe for 70 years,
Trump wants boots on the ground in Libya where they'd have to fight from
day one.
