Our Country Is Sick

Gaining nothing except risking a full-scale war with Iran, Trump first abrogated the nuclear deal with Iran, then ordered the assassination of Iran’s top military leader, Qasem Soleimani. Iran promptly renounced its remaining restraints under the nuclear deal that was forged during the Obama administration. We can expect Iran to proceed at top speed to develop nuclear arms capability. Trump is a dangerous sociopath. The Republican members of Congress are acting shamefully, selfishly, and stupidly in blocking his removal. That we are in these circumstances is an indication that our country is sick. We don’t know whether the malady is curable.
