Uncle Sam...

I am not really up with the US elections apart from knowing they drag on for months. Is this latest dual between Clinton & Trump typical with its mutual character assassination or do some candidates actually fight their corners on policy matters ?

To discuss policy, you need policies; problem is, the policies seem to fade when they get to Washington, partly due to the tug of war between the Senate and the White House. The only guy with the semblance of a policy programme was Bernie Sanders.

Just the opposite, she appears to be the same material of which Blair type war criminals are made.

A criminal investigation has just been reopened on her by the FBI which seems to centre on her breaching US national security on a grand scale for personal gain, it's possible her presidential bid is on the rocks anyway.

push the button and think later? What later. There would be no later given the number of countries that have atomic bomb capability available to them. Only the pope and Switzerland has not developed nuclear bomb technology and i am not sure about the pope.

The choices given to the American people are probably worse than for many years then & it seems to me that these two misfits shouldn't even be in with a sniff of sitting in the Oval Office. It is very shambolic of the electoral system of the biggest democracy in the western world.

I agree with Freeborn John: any woman with a mission to prove she's more macho than any bloke, is a dangerous entity indeed. She's already argued for a "no fly zone" in Syria, which could involve escalation into a war with Russia. The reason we've got Trump, is the same reason we got Brexit; a major section o the population has been deserted by the political elite, and now they're voting for anything that isn't politics as usual.

I get the opinion of Trump though of dispensing with the no fly zone option & going straight for the red button.

Doubt it; Trump will probably be more reliant on advisers than anyone; plus, as he will discover that saying what he will do, and actually doing it in office, are two different things.  However, he could be bezzy mates with Putin though !!  :lol:
