Three . . .

. . . things that struck me in the article referenced below . . .


". . . Pompeo told the Christian Broadcast Network last year that Trump might have been sent by God to help the Jewish people defeat Iran. . . "As a Christian, I certainly believe that’s possible," he said then. . .
[1] If this adult male, serving in a very high position of our U.S. government (Pompeo) still (he is 56 years of age) believes in an omniscient, invasive "god" and the things that he (Pompeo) imagines this "god" can/will do, then he is not qualified to service in this capacity. Oh, wait a minute, he works for trump . . .

Aside from selling arms to Iran to fund Nicaraguan contras, the Reagan administration provided massive aid to Iraq in the Iran-Iraq war in that decade, which followed the fall of the shah and the taking of American hostages in Iran during the Carter administration. . .
[2] Reagan, a republican, aided and abetted the hostile nation that took 52 hostages shortly before he took office. A man in possession of 'great' integrity (sarcasm mine).

John R. Pitney, a professor of politics at Claremont McKenna College in California, said . . . "I’m not sure that Trump’s calculations are super-sophisticated — I think his actions are driven by a desire to look tough, and that gives leverage to people like Pompeo who apparently has convinced him that this is a great way to look tough. . ." . . . "
[3] Mr. Pitney is quite perceptive regarding the personality of president trump.
