A more relistic Christian perspective

Re the militarization of America; the whole article is an interesting read:


"To be sure, President-elect Donald Trump has vowed to “promote regional stability and produce an easing of tensions in the world.” He promises a foreign policy “tempered by realism,” an end to the “defense sequester” and a national security strategy premised on “peace through strength.” And he says he will “make America strong again” and “make America safe again.”

Toward that end, Trump wants to build up the active-duty Army to 540,000 soldiers, the Navy to 350 ships, the Marine Corps to 36 battalions, and the Air Force to 1,200 fighter aircraft, while pouring new resources into “a state of the art missile defense system.”

With the Middle East on fire, Europe on edge, Russia and Iran on the march, China on the rise, and the Korean Peninsula, as always, on the verge, these are sound and much-needed policy initiatives that would serve the national interest—indeed, Trump vows to “view the world through the clear lens of American interests”—and promote international security (which itself is in the national interest)."

Herod

I am beginning to see why there is a trust deficit between the rank and file Methodists and our leaders. What a gap! The fellow members of the church I belong too seem pretty energized by the election results and are looking forward to a time of prosperity. The corrupt Clintons have been sent packing. Already the stock market is reaching a record high. The people in the new administration are proven leaders of the highest caliber. Looks to me like we are entering a new era of optimism after 8 years of globalist nonsense.
