SELF-EDIT: Tore off the out-of-taste bomb joke.
I do think the reason our prez is like this is because he kinda sees the writing on the wall and is preparing for The Worst. But the moment Hillary wins, he’d change his mind, or at least be a bit less of an ass and risk losing NATO Speed-Dial.
He did, however, make a critical error: he did not go after laboratories and storage facilities. He went after people, not locations, which is fine and dandy until somebody decides to have none of that shit and takes him on.
