The party’s establishment is beginning to wonder whether this political outsider, this man who is not even truly a Republican, can be stopped. Alarmed, neocon commentator Anne Applebaum goes so far as to suggest that a Trump presidency would mark "the end of the West as we know it." That's a bit dramatic, there is more to the west than the USA.
On Saturday, Donald Trump won two more primary victories, in Louisiana and Kentucky, and thus securing a total of 373 delegates, with the more mainstream candidates Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and John Kasich trailing with 291, 122 and 33 delegates respectively. Some political writers are now asking whether the Republican establishment dirty trick department can come up with anything capable of stopping Trump, others, including journalist Anne Applebaum, have resorted to scaremongering.
In a recent article for The Washington Post, Applebaum, a journalist famed for her hawkish, stridently anti-Russian stance, laid out a worst-case scenario for the global empire American conservatives dreamed of, warning that "right now, we are two or three bad elections away from the end of NATO, the end of the European Union and maybe the end of the liberal world order as we know it."
"In the United States, we are faced with the real possibility of Republican Party presidential nominee Donald Trump, which means we have to take seriously the possibility of a President Trump. Hillary Clinton’s campaign might implode for any number of reasons, too obvious to rehash here; elections are funny things, and electorates are fickle."
"That means,” Applebaum warns, “that next January we could have, in the White House, a man who is totally uninterested in what presidents Obama, Bush, Clinton, Reagan – as well as Johnson, Nixon and Truman – would all have called ‘our shared values.'"
Pure unmitigated bollocks, it must be said. Trump could not be a worse disaster that Obama or Bush II have been, and on the upside he might just return to isolationism and pull back from all Obama's wars (few Americans have any idea how many foreign nations the USA is militarily involved in. (It's hard to find the real figure, the listing on Wikipedia is nonsense so I went under the radar and found that not counting friendly nations such as Japan, Germany and Britain, and not counting places where a small number of military personnel are attached to embassies, consulates or technical missions, in fact places when the USA has people engaged in combat, peacekeeping or tactical support for military operations is over eighty. These include places you will never find information on via the public access part of the net, such as Uganda, Eritrea, South Sudan and so on. Go looking if you like, but be sure your computer is bomb proof.
In fact you will find some surprises too. Some of the nations we think are our friends are really enemies. NATO member Turkey has been illegally trading oil and armaments with ISIS and Al Qaeda throughout the Syrian conflict. Saudi Arabia and Qatar have both played a double game, sponsorinf terroism and supporting Al Qaeda while pretending to be allies of the west.
And even the Obama White House cannot be trusted, after all back in 2008 he said in any conflict he would be on the side of the underdog (never mind that the underdog does not alway have right on their side, Al Qaeda for example took on the west but that did not mean they were anything but a bunch of murdering bastards.)
So Anne Apllebaum can cringe and quake at the prospect of a President Trump, for myself I find the status quo candidate Hillary Clinton more scary.
