War Genie

The Big Vacancy does so love the trappings of war and power, although he himself avoided its brutality in his “own Vietnam” (as he once quipped). So, instead, he said, he had put himself in harm’s way during those bloody years heroically avoiding deadly STDs trolling female waters in calm seas suffering bone spurs.
.
By all means give him his war-toy parade, a moment to satisfy his imagination, a road crewchance to see himself an Alexander, a Napoleon, his  troops passing, honoring him with salutes, his missiles partially erect rolling by on caissons, his tanks chewing up pavement, inevitable road crews behind, covering his damage …his base applauding, applauding, applauding.
.
Trump is not the first Un Delirio to bask in visions of grandeur with a following:

……. history has seen at least one fool uncork a bottle thinking 
……. he could tame a genie only to end up shooting himself
……. in the head in a bunker after having created a losing proposition
……. producing 1. his corpse and 2. a continental Armageddon
