Pity your reasoned analysis by the 94 year old veteran didn't twig on to the following glaring errors in his little missive:

1: Since the Iraq War (2003 - which a Labour Government took us into) we have had:

Labour in power from 2003 until 2010 - 7 years
A Coalition Government from 2010 to 2015 - 5 years
A Conservative Government from 2015 to present - 2 years

2: The UK has no formal alliance or defence agreement with the Philippines.

3: The UK, France and the USA tried extremely hard in the Security Council of the UN to curb and restrain what was happening in Syria on each and every occasion it was Russia and China that vetoed any resolution being tabled and voted on.

I still find it extremely rude to change someone's name because of some infantile idea you have about his half Scottish heritage.

"why should you think that President Donal-John should be any different? "
Paerhaps because he is not sane?
Like it or not (most sane people do not - you, apparently do) - he is President of the United States)
It is his job as President to condemn racism outright, particularly when it takes to the streets - he has prevaricated and twisted and finally, has been embarrassed into making a still half-arsed statement
The people he has been forced into condemning form a large section of support for his populism and extremist rhetoric - that's why he has hesitated in condemning them
"Violence is self defeating,"
What an insane statement - of course it isn't otherwise we would be living in a world without war
Violence is an inevitable part of the world we live in and until we change that world, it will remain the case.
I have never at any time condoned terrorism, I point out that it is inevitable in certain circumstances - America uses terrorism in peacetime and at war, Britain has used and supported terrorism in wartime and has backed terrorism when they deemed necessary in situations like those in Northern Ireland - waterboarding and other forms of torture, for instance.
As a pacifist (sort of), I abhor all forms of violence, but that doesn't mean I don't recognise its inevitability and am prepared to accept it as the lesser of two evils
Terrorism (aka "resistance") helped defeat Nazism in Eorope - it hapled end Apartheid in South Africa - it brought about the downfall of Empires and won independence for many countries
Your last sentence is utter gibberish unless you are prepared to lay out in detailed terms who social terms is to be brought about
To work for the betterment of humanity is to provoke a violent response from those who wish to maintain their dominance of society - the eternal dilemma of all pacifists (sort of or otherwise)

Donald Trump's Long History of Racism-Vox

From the Article:

"1989: In a controversial case that's been characterized as a modern-day lynching, four black teenagers and one Latino teenager — the "Central Park Five" — were accused of attacking and raping a jogger in New York City. Trump immediately took charge in the case, running an ad in local papers demanding, "BRING BACK THE DEATH PENALTY. BRING BACK OUR POLICE!" The teens' convictions were later vacated after they spent seven to 13 years in prison, and the city paid $41 million in a settlement to the teens. But Trump in October said he still believes they're guilty, despite the DNA evidence to the contrary."

"The only case I wanted to make is that, whatever else he may be guilty of, Trump's views on NK nukes are in line with all his predecessors"
You don't have to "prove" this Keith - nobody has ever argued that any administration has ever opposed nuclear weapons, on the contrary, they have all supported them and Britain has always followed that line slavishly
That's what the Aldermaston marches and CND were about - the rejection of nuclear weapons.
The advent of Trump and his megalomaniac approach to leadership has turned the spotlight back on the necessity to abandon reliance on this form of defence and replace it with diplomacy - Trump has proven himself totally incapable of doing that.
Your 'Dr Strangelove' type arguments are helpful as an example of Trump's non-thinking approach to a serious situation - even down to nuclear weapons in suitcases in order to bomb London - science fiction at its most crass (I know - I was a devotee once).

You're using the idea some bloke's going to check a thermonuclear warhead into a lorry, drive it half way around the work undetected, cross the channel and detonate it to support an argument for a pre-emptive nuclear strike?

No. Certainly not a thermonuclear device.
A basic device could be fitted into a suitcase. They were fitted into 155mm shells.

It is quite feasible to smuggle such a device into a country.
NK recently smuggled VX, the most deadly of all nerve agents, into Indonesia.
NK has ICBM missiles to deliver its warheads.

Jim,
You keep claiming to have proved something so far you have "proved" nothing.

Israel has had the bomb for some time now - it is religion driven and is ruled by an extremist right-wing regime of the type that has only been kept out of the International law courts by US vetoes (pretty well as Syria is being kept out of the courts by Chinese and Russian vetoes)
It has a history of human rights abuses, including massacres of unarmed civilians
It has shown itself willing to put nuclear weapons in the hands of a fascist state as proved by its attempts to arm the South African Regime
It is permanently under accusation of ethnic cleansing
And to top it all - its Head of State is under investigation for corruption.
As I said - it has the bomb
America has a bomb, has a long history of both security and actual military interference in the affairs of other states - its security forces have a long history of espionage, sabotage and murder.
It has used similar weapons on two sizeable cities, causing death and deformation to generations of children
As unstable as North Korea might be, it couldn't begin to compete with the records of these two beauties
It is the existence of the bomb that is the problem - not who possesses it.
If we continue to support its existence we will be sealing the fate of the future

February 9, 1993: The IAEA demands special inspections of two sites that are believed to store nuclear waste. The request is based on strong evidence that North Korea has been cheating on its commitments under the NPT. North Korea refuses the IAEA's request.

March 12, 1993: Amid demands for special inspections, North Korea announces its intention to withdraw from the NPT in three months, citing Article X provisions that allow withdrawal for supreme national security considerations.

April 1, 1993: The IAEA declares that North Korea is not adhering to its safeguards agreement and that it cannot guarantee that North Korean nuclear material is not being diverted for nonpeaceful uses.

June 11, 1993: Following talks with the United States in New York, North Korea suspends its decision to pull out of the NPT just before the withdrawal would have become legally effective. North Korea also agrees to the full and impartial application of IAEA safeguards.

For its part, the United States grants assurances against the threat and use of force, including nuclear weapons. Washington also promises not to interfere with North Korea's internal affairs.

July 19, 1993: After a second round of talks with the United States, North Korea announces in a joint statement that it is "prepared to begin consultations with the IAEA on outstanding safeguards and other issues" and that it is ready to negotiate IAEA inspections of its nuclear facilities. The joint statement also indicates that Pyongyang might consider a deal with the United States to replace its graphite nuclear reactors with light-water reactors (LWRs), which are proliferation resistant.

Late 1993: The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Defense Intelligence Agency estimate that North Korea had separated about 12 kilograms of plutonium. This amount is enough for at least one or two nuclear weapons.
