THE WAR PARTY IS HARD TO BEAT. It assassinated JFK. It turned Nixon into a War President. Then it assassinated Nixon, without actually killing him. It doesn't need to resort to anything crude but sometimes that is useful. The War Party may have been behind Reagan's dementia. It has successfully used the memory of Reagan as if he had been a War President. Reagan is gone so he can't correct this or denounce what is currently going on. The War Party has lots of experience. Trump doesn't really have a chance. Only Jimmy Carter has ever beaten them. It turned Woodrow Wilson and FDR into Peace Presidents when they were both actually the biggest War Presidents. Truman was a very useful tool of the War Party. Truman nuked the Japs and launched a new phase of America Uber Alles. Theodore Roosevelt was a War President. Polk was a War President. Lincoln was a War President.
AND OF COURSE, GEORGE WASHINGTON WAS A WAR PRESIDENT.
Since the United States has been at war with someone non-stop since 1776, it is hard to find a President who was not a War President. Perhaps Calvin Coolidge and Warren G. Harding were not War Presidents, but the War Party was busy ginning up the next war. They never sleep. War is the most profitable activity known to Man. Americans love War. Americans have always profited from War. (Some more than others, of course.)
People are always surprised when they discover that war goes all the way back to the beginning of the United States. War (and slavery) was part of the culture of the 13 colonies — don't forget the Indians (AKA "native Americans").
Americans believe that they have "the most powerful military the world has ever known." Americans believe the United States has never lost a war. The truth is different. Since 1945, the United States has never won a war. The United States did win World War II if one ignores the Soviet Union, the Republic of China and Great Britain with her Empire and Dominions. They did all the work. The United States did win World War I if one ignores France, the Russia Empire and Great Britain with the British Empire. They did all the work. The American Civil War was not won by the Union. It was won by Washington. Both the North and the South lost the Civil War which killed as many as a million Americans if one includes uncounted American civilian deaths. Over 700,000 American military deaths were counted and the South was decimated. Americans believe they have never had to fight a war on their own soil. Really?
Americans should stop listening to War Party bullshit and join the human race. Americans, we are waiting for you with open arms.
