The world expected President Obama to bring peace. Instead, he made war. When this Nobel Peace Prize recipient leaves the Oval Office, he will have the dubious distinction of having served as the longest wartime president in the history of the United States.
Is it possible that the reverse would happen with Donald Trump if he gets elected? Would he bring peace when the world expects him to make war?
Some anti-war activists on both the right and the left hope so. They are kidding themselves.
Make no mistake: Trump’s bellicosity, hair-trigger temperament, disturbing tendency to see the world as “us versus them,” and, above all, his militant protectionism will mean more war, not less.
