"he is right to be very careful about who is entering your country."
Trumps ban on Muslim countries has noting to do with security, otherwise he would have included Saudi Arabia on the list - that was the source of the finance for 9/11 and the majority of the participants.
He is playint to the crowds and it is an extremely dangerous game he is playing.
The world in not at risk because of Islamic Fundamentalist Terror - it is at risk if the problem of fundamentalism is not handled properly
The West's inaction of the Assad massacres, it's failure to assist ordinary Arabs to win better conditions for themselves through Arab Spring and our permanent lust for cheap oil, managed to turn a small, virtually unknown sect of religious nutters into a major threat - it would have no influence if we had played our cards like human beings rather than post Empire predators.
We let the Genii out of the bottle.
The greatest threat to our future now lies in the fact that The Wanker in the White House is treating Isis as a carrier move by pretending that he alone stands between Isis and annihilation.
If anything, he is a damn sight more dangerous than Isis if he is allowed to continue with his thuggery
