Like so many of my friends and allies these days, I wake up every morning with one thought at the front of my mind:
What fresh hell will Trump bring today?
Maybe it will be careless antagonism of one of our long-standing international allies.
We have always been at war with Australia! Bad hombres!
Maybe it will be careless antagonism of one of our long-standing international rivals. What could possibly go wrong with putting Iran “on notice”? Or warning China to steer clear of the South China Sea? Especially when the Pentagon itself had no advance warning that such red lines would appear.
