Don't Let the Door Hit Your Ass On the Way Out, John.

The White House has lost its Dr. Strangelove.  Donald Trump has sent John Bolton packing.

The next US National Security Advisor?  Who cares? Trump doesn't listen to people who know things anyway. 

I can't help but think somewhere Jim Mattis is breathing a sigh of relief.

One thing I learned in my war studies course from King's College, was that the greatest cause of war is inadvertence. Nations that don't really desire war can simply back into them.

This is particularly true in the case of major-power transitions, what is sometimes called "Thucydides Trap."


It takes statesmanship to avoid those shoals but all the West has now is Donald Trump.
