The most crazed and unhinged anti-Trump ad I have ever seen in this unusually unhinged campaign, run some months ago by the Citizen Super PAC, which is connected to the Republican party:
If there was a recent Republican administration whose international violence and war crimes evoked memories of Nazi Germany, then it was most certainly the administration of George W. Bush, whose Neoconservative warmongers were responsible for the illegal invasion of Iraq in 2003, torture, kidnapping, black prisons, assassinations, and the mass slaughter and civil war in Iraq caused by their invasion and occupation.
By contrast, Trump has repudiated the mad Neoconservatives (who, incidentally, reacted to Trump with vicious hysteria). He has repudiated nation building. He has said again and again he is for a less interventionist and “America First” foreign policy, which, if anything, is a retreat to a more isolationist American tradition.
Now it is true that he has been hawkish on Iran, which is unfortunate, but his call for cooperation with Russia over Syria may well be the most important of all his foreign policy positions, given the insane drive for conflict with Russia by the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton.
The US is heading for a Cuban-Missile-Crisis-style confrontation with Russia, which in extreme circumstances could accidentally escalate into a nuclear war:
