There is a tradition for presidents of the United States of America, and that has to do with each November attending the annual Army vs Navy football game. It is unclear at this point as to whether or not Donald Trump, among his other fantastic achievements in life was a fantastic football player in high school or college. Anyway, our president was asked what he thought about the teams. Usually, of course, when one writes, usually, it refers to a president making some sort of compliment to the players.
But, this is the era of Trump. His response to the question was: “I loves the armed forces. I mean I don’t know if this game is necessarily the best football, but they have spirit.” Navy is ranked 25th in the nation as a football team. Both teams are going to bowl games. Yes, Donald, you ‘love the armed forces,” which is the reason you got four draft deferments so you could fight the battle of TITS in Park Avenue bedrooms.

I was a child in America during World War II. I recall some short stories in the New York Times about some ‘killing of Jews’ by German soldiers. It was not until a major story was published in a newspaper named, PM, that it first entered my mind that the ‘killings’ were more widespread than I had imagined. Today, thousands have died in the Syrian city of Aleppo,and the stories appear, we read them, turn the page to sport news, and life goes on –as usual in America and most nations of the world.
World leaders like Italian Matteo Renzi, French President Hollande,and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau,issued a statement of concern. “Aleppo is being subjected to daily bombings and artillery attacks by the Syrian regime, supported by Russia and Iran. Hospitals and schools are not being spared,they appear to being targets in an attempt to wear people down.”
Death does not take a holiday in Syria.
