Anyone who has ever played chess can see that Trump has backed himself into a no-win corner…and we all know how important winning is to Trump. If you play out scenarios, looking at all possible outcomes, one thing is clear: #Trump Has No Plan, and is shooting from the hip, hoping for an accidental victory.
But there are no surprises here. Much smarter people than Trump and his goons have looked at the #Korea problem…and NOTHING has been done since the 1950s because the smartest minds have all conceded there’s nothing that CAN be done.
IMO there’s no way out of this, since President Ego will never voluntarily choose a solution that admits he was wrong, and this “gambit” (I use the term loosely, as it implies an intelligent plan) leads to war, because he’ll refuse to back down.
