Words To Think About

Back in 1979, everybody was worried that Ronald Reagan was nuclear mad.  I was, although I was only a senior in high school.

But Reagan was not unshackled.  He was a hawk.  Spoke softly and carried a bug stick.  “Carried” being the operative word.

Trump isn’t a hawk.  And he doesn’t speak softly.  He can’t play brinksmanship because he doesn’t know what the brink is.  Deterrence is too nuanced for him.
