No respectable leadership
... not in the UK, not in the US, certainly not in Canada.
Trudeau and his pals at the NATO reception can snigger [YouTube] all they like at Trump behind his back, where they stupidly imagine he won't hear of it, but they certainly appear to tread lightly around his person.
Like school kids who straighten up when the principal walks by because there is power vested in him even if he is a clumsy, nose-picking dork.
From today's Guardian:
The Star: Justin Trudeau Wants to Focus on Domestic Concerns But Trump Won't Let Him
Can you imagine Trudeau phoning up Trump and shouting "Are you out of your mind?". He may or may not have actually won a boxing match [YouTube] prior to his first election, but he's no match for anything that requires straightforward action.

Some extremely good questions are being asked at PennyForYourThoughts:
"Why deviate from the planned course?" is a question I asked myself first thing this morning. There are standard routes set out for passenger planes. And one would expect that a radio inquiry would have occurred before action was taken. So, as Penny suggested, communication appears to have been jammed.
Let's hope these questions get credibly answered - but the chances may be very slim.
Meanwhile, trust is waning in leaders almost everywhere, including here at home:
Macleans: Canada would like a government now, please (Paul Wells)
"Ministers not named Freeland" is a telling statement about the power that Soros-directed Freeland wields. She played a leadership role in the Venezuelan coup plot and, given that her roots go deep in Ukraine, she needs to stay entirely out of the Iran tragedy.
For whatever it may be worth, my sympathies are solely with the families and friends of those upon whom the madness of our current world has wreaked an unthinkable deprivation in the most bizarre of circumstances that will forever be recorded in ignominious history.

"But for ministers not named Freeland, we’re not seeing a more minister-visible government."

Wow, Penny! It strikes me now as prophetic, if not downright scary, that we had a similar conversation exactly a year ago (minus one day) when I wrote that Trudeau was merely Freeland's beard -- and now he literally has grown a beard.

I feel ya, M.R. I always keep my sound off until I need it, just in case I hit a news video with either of those guys in it. LOL

You might enjoy watching this discussion (part of Tulsi Gabbard's campaign). What a pleasure to hear some common sense and I've always liked Dennis Kucinich. This is the short version.

Thanks, M.R. I watched the long version. Gabbard is impressive. She has a very natural and even soothing way of speaking; she's not constantly tucking her hair behind her ear; she doesn't show cleavage nor expose her thighs when she sits down, and she's not wearing a string of pearls. In other words, she's her own person. She's also articulate and knowledgeable -- on the subject of war at least -- and does not seem to be following a memorized a script.
