And she got it wrong.
Come January next year the United States may have a president who says on the record that he would cancel defence treaties with Japan and South Korea and that he wouldn’t mind those countries going nuclear, thereby reversing the non-proliferation policy which America has held since the Second World War (even though he also claims that nuclear capability is the world’s biggest problem); who regards Nato as obsolete because it is too expensive; who condemns Iran for not buying weapons from the US, even though it is forbidden to do so by America’s own sanctions, and because it is “North Korea’s number one trading partner” – which it certainly is not.
Donald Trump must be the most dangerously ignorant man ever to run for the leadership of a modern democratic country. His lack of the most basic information on world affairs approaches a sublime state of transcendental unknowing in which facts are irrelevant and only beliefs matter.The person who is ignorant in this case is Daley.
Trump never said he will arbitrarily break any agreements with anyone. Renegotiate? Of course. And NATO is obsolete, not because it is expensive for the United States (it is) but because the Soviet Union ended 25 years ago. As for Japan and South Korea going nuke, they already are. I mean, Barack Obama just helped Iran get a nuke.
But "the most dangerously ignorant man ever to run for the leadership of a modern democratic country" -- aka The Neville Chamberlain Memorial Cup -- is now held by Angela Merkel, who allows Muslims to rape German women while turning water cannons on Germans who dare protest.
I suggesr Daley write instead of the Muslim invasion of England, or the coming British vote on exiting the European Union,
