"So it's a natural state of affairs that the rest of humanity must live in fear of that ignorant lout in the White House?"
The United States was founded in 1776. That's 239 years ago. During that period of time, the US has been in a formal state of war with one party or another for 222 years. That's 93% of its existence, or, if you prefer, it has been in a state of peace for 17 years of its entire life. It's longest period of "peacetime" was six years, from 1935 to 1940.
I think that speaks for itself.
