Since the arrival of the European settlers , the Puritans and Pilgrims in America they believed GOD was on their side. They claimed to be escaping religious intolerance but they were in fact ousted from Europe for wanting to maintain a theocracy based upon the insanity of the Old Testament. When they ousted free thinkers and massacred the Naive people over the next five centuries they believed they had God on their side. No matter how unnecessary how unjustified a war , an invasion , an intervention a coup in another nation their sovereignty was ignored because the US had God on its side. These same people still rule in the USA and still believe God is on their side. The elites continue their propaganda that America is an exceptional nation though it lags behind all other industrialized democratic nations when it comes to economic and social justice. Hillary Clinton and Obama and Bush and Reagan all believe USA has the duty to conquer the world in the name of God and sometimes in the name of a corporatist Capitalist elitists form of democracy. Those in power in the USA and their elite supporters believe that the destiny of the USA has become clear since the fall of the Berlin Wall and so any push back from any other nation they see as an affront and intolerable. Therefore those who do not submit are on the side of evil as in the Axis of Evil and so can be obliterated in way the US deems it must. Trump is just the latest in a long line of socio-pathic US leaders who are victims of their own propaganda. Trump said he didn’t want more wars but it seems the Deep State and others have put him in a corner and like a wild animal he will respond . The liberal and conservative elites are now playing a very dangerous game just as they did with invading Iraq, bombing and destroying Libya , engineering the ousting of democracy in Ukraine replaced by NeoNazis but they just want power nothing less is acceptable.In the end it may end up being a literal scorched earth policy with no do-overs. GORD.
