How Much We Do Forget – Our Fights With Cuba, Iran and Socialism And How We Caused Them

My, My! How much we do forget!

Obama tried to connect with our old foes Cuba and Iran to smooth out the decades old conflicts and make the world a more friendly place. However, now Mr. President Grinch has decided to throw them back to the corner of the ring and start boxing with them again. Sigh! Some dictators always need a punching bag enemy to entertain their publics.

Or is he simply trying to duck the question?
It’s all very open to interpretation, but it certainly leaves him a hostage to fortune, in the eyes of some.
Are these the words of a skilled strategist, or a confused buffoon who has no idea what he’s doing?
Prominent media outlet NPR gives a few examples.
Among other things, Trump has dropped this peculiar and arguably disconcerting phrase in relation to North Korea, Iran and the Florida / Puerto Rico hurricane.
Does this phrase have its pitfalls, then?
Here’s a cartoon from Up Chuck.
Trouble in paradise!
