It's a Good Thing Trump Has a Plan

I'm happy to see that Donald Trump is enjoying the celebrity of his transitional period. Does he have a notion of what is ahead? Mostly just linking to this piece by Andrew Bacevich who should be on the short list for any administration, but never will be.

All signs indicate that, in one fashion or another, our combative next president will perpetuate the wars he’s inheriting. Trump may fancy that, as a veteran of Celebrity Apprentice (but not of military service), he possesses a special knack for spotting the next Grant or Sherman. But acting on that impulse will merely replenish the swamp in the Greater Middle East along with the one in Washington. And soon enough, those who elected him with expectations of seeing the much-despised establishment dismantled will realize that they’ve been had.
