Your statement seem like a knee-jerk reaction that Trump would thoughtlessly utter. Like "are we so innocent" or "I only like heroes that aren't captured". He doesn't stop to think before he runs his mouth. You shouldn't either!
You weren't talking about nuclear war, only that Trump was in charge of them. Your last sentence says "you shouldn't either" ("he doesn't think before he runs his mouth.") Anyway you think what you want and do what you want. The rest of us will come in and clean up your mess.

To top it off, today Trump announced that he wants to build more nukes! And you have to ask why I'm worried? Only a fool would call for more of those weapons. We already have more that enough to kill every living thing on the planet.
OK. Let's get rid of our nuclear weapons. What do you propose we do then, when nuclear countries such as Russia, China, N. Korea, Pakistan, etc. decide to take over the world, or their neighbors, our allies? Tell me specifically, OK?

Did I read you said you were a law enforcement officer for 30 years? I can't believe that one who would be in a position of strength would be as afraid as you say you are. Did you ever chase an armed individual? Did you ever pull your gun? Did you work in Community Relations? the Explorer program, PAL, or in actual street policing?

Just remember, even though I am in the valley of death, I fear no evil because I'm the meanest son of a bitch in the valley. The USA is the greatest country on earth BECAUSE of it's strength, leading the rest of the world. Strength brought us here and strength will save us all. GO TRUMP.

I repeat, strength only forces compliance. And then only until the force is released. We sent 166 thousand troops into Iraq, and as soon as they were removed (according to a plan approved by George W), the stuff hit the fan and ISIS was born. Do you propose that we invade every country in the world and force them to do our bidding? How long will that last?
Ideas and sound principles lead. It has always been so. Ultimately every empire based upon force has failed. Greek, Persian, Roman, Spanish, French, British. All passed away into history's dustbin. The United States has become a world leader because of our ideals. The free world was victorious in World War Two because of our principles. We were unable to win in Viet Nam because we supported a corrupt regime, even though our troops put up a hell of a fight. We failed to gain the Mideast because George W and his oil-man Cheney wanted to steal oil, again, even though our military fought and served bravely.
A position based on a fabrication, is a fabrication itself.

​​​​​​​Do you have any concerns about Trump's real documented actions, as opposed to these fabricated fears (and please answer knowing that I asked the same question of Obama's critics in 2009)?
