Every couple of weeks...

President Trump tweets out some bloodcurdling message hinting at imminent war with Iran, Isis, North Korea or whatever....and the internet and opinion industry explodes with either joy or terror...and then...Nothing.
The trail goes cold then the Presidents tweets out something else and the cycle starts up this leads me to the inevitable conclusion that the President lacks the requisite adult attention span to follow thru with any of his saber rattling....which is a bad thing should he ever be cornered in foreign affairs and sooner or later he will believe me.

This contrasts starkly with the laser like focus brought to bear by President Bush, VP Cheney and SecDef Rumsfeld in the lead up to the disastrous Iraq War II.  So I guess over the short term, there may be some safety in chaos...til that gets put to the test.
