Donald Trump’s call with allies to strategically bomb Weapons of Mass Destruction in Syrian targets is to be applauded. Growing tired of a pacifist foreign policy which has allowed other nations to exploit USA resources while not being accountable to us for bills incurred on their behalf, Trump has begun to turn the tables with unexpected results.

When Russia invaded its previous neighbors who had sought their freedom, often using lethal force on their citizens, the USA stood by and did nothing. When North Korea initially threatened its citizens and those to its south, the USA again stood silent. When Iran showed its true colors and took out thousands of its own citizens, the fix was in making the USA a patsy by the Obama Administration in a knowing game of chicken where that nation was given over $100 billion, much of it in cash without nuclear inspection verification or other accountabilities. When the Clinton Foundation might have traded national nuclear resources for cash, the U.S. Congress has stood by without investigating corruption in the management of our national resources.

The political cancer within this nation compromising foreign policy and national resources needed for our defense should make us all tremble. The unwillingness of this nation to engage in efforts to stop the genocide of powerful nations upon its citizens should make us uncomfortable. If people are denied homeland protections, homes elsewhere will continue to be sought. Europe and others are closing their borders to these immigrants as are many Muslim nations. Unfortunately the landing place for displaced residents of these nations is preferentially the USA which has been too generous to too many, for they can’t go home again.

My problem is what will be the long term rationale for such interventions. Will we go after African dictators who, with Russia and China’s input, are slaughtering thousands while stealing strategic minerals to take to their homelands? Will the disproportionate jailing of young black males continue raping this ethnicity of needed intellectual capital while feeding into Clinton’s “Super Predator” paranoia? Is this going to also turn into an international black-white thing where no one wins and all are ill-served?

As a black Jew, the stories of the Holocaust and the extermination of my people for political expediency never leaves me. The collateral benefit of Trump’s action has been not only his willingness to talk to leaders but also be decisive and impose harsh penalties for violations which has brought North Korea to the table and demonstrate a willingness to lay down its nuclear capabilities. Trump called a bluff and showed his willingness to strike while the iron is hot. That decisiveness in defense of this nation is long overdue. The need to stop caravans of people from entering this country illegally is potentially the continuation of a move which doesn’t put citizen's first and disregards the truth that deprives us of our own citizen investment before others.

The corruption of citizens willing to try to overturn a duly elected president should make us afraid, very afraid. We should not be for socialism but a representative democracy where people don’t always get what they want, but can get what they are willing to work for. Whether the president is unfaithful is not a venue for me to delve into but note when John F. Kennedy was so engaged with his “male friend” and dozens of women trouncing through the White House, they called it “Camelot.” Maybe we are searching for the 10 good men who could save a nation and rebuild its fortunes. They all have their flaws.
