Trump's STUPID STUPID tweet yesterday ...
In a near run thing, timing wise, the entire Japanese carrier fleet opposing us was obliterated.
These were the instructions Nimitz gave to the totally outnumbered Spruance:
Yesterday, a day on which the D 'nominee', Hillary Clinton was being questioned by the FBI and facing possible charges under the Espionage Act, and days after President Bill 'Vincenzo Pantangeli'
In carrying out the task assigned . . . you will be governed by the principle of calculated risk, which you shall interpret to mean the avoidance of exposure of your force to attack by superior enemy forces without good prospect of inflicting, as a result of such exposure, greater damage on the enemy
Clinton tried to have a secret meeting with the Atty Genl (and failed), Donald Trump sailed his victorious carriers into the range of the Japanese battleships like a TRIGGER HAPPY SHOOT FROM THE HIP CARELESS MORON, and destroyed his complete victory by advertising HRC's undoubted complete corruption on a pile of cash with the outline of a STAR OF DAVID.
Now I do NOT believe Trump is antisemitic. That's a ridiculous charge for a man with a Jewish daughter and Jewish grandchildren, but he placed himself and the entire campaign, and all those who support him on the defensive for no reason when the entire national focus in the campaign was on Hillary and the FBI
Image in the morning:
And THAT is what gives pause.
Adm Spruance, knowing he had won, SAILED AWAY to complete and utter victory, and the Japanese never again had carrier supremacy in WW2.
That is what Trump may have thrown away yesterday.
And it PISSES ME OFF
