Michael Scheuer spent his career at the CIA developing plans to make America safer. Dr. Scheuer, former chief of the CIA’s bin Laden unit, offers this plan for Donald Trump.
The bottom line, at least for me, is that with the republic apparently in its economic death throes, Mr. Trump’s America First orientation – if he delivers substance to match his promise — gives America a chance to save itself.
It is time to get out of NATO, let the Europeans defend themselves, stop all immigration for ten years, close the border, let all of the Middle East burn to the ground, stop beating the war drums with Russia, and adopt a neutral and non-interventionist foreign policy.
We would thereby give America a chance to put its own house in order and rebuilt its ability to defend itself without greedy, worthless, and encumbering allies.
Such a tack would also give each party a chance to either purge their leadership of interventionists, warmongers, and Israel-Firsters, or die because they refuse to do so.
Only Mr. Trump seems willing to try to make such a win possible for America.
