TURBAT: World renowned political analyst Noam Chomsky is perfectly right in his assessment that President Donald Trump is an unpredictable character. Trump has put great emphasis on ‘America First’. However, his internal and external policies do not match the words he has been emphasising on. Internally, President Trump is facing impeachment only because of his own decisions. Externally, his decisions are pushing the world, the Middle East in particular, towards a lethal war. His abrupt decision of targeting Gen Soleimani of Iran is a case in point. Perhaps, Trump is oblivious of the fact that realism is equal for all countries. If he indulges his country into a power game, Iran is not going to stand a step back.
