MikeB4: The following is merely my feelings about this. I hope I am absolutely incorrect. I am not really seeking a debate just stating how I feel.
I don’t believe that any outcome in the November election can stop utter chaos in the United States. I wont matter if Trump or Biden wins the country is so badly divided that either outcome is going to be widely opposed and filled with suspicion. The divide down racial, ethnic, religious and political lines is so deep and so wide that avoiding violence and chaos is unavoidable. This unfortunately will not just affect the Americas the affects will be felt globally.
The US November will face a crisis as they did in April 1861 that will change the course of their nation. Spill over will be hard to avoid. The impact of this will see the globe experience not one annus horribilis but several.
As I have said before in these forums; "America gets what it deserves and deserves what it gets" but you are right-on that it will 'spill over'. The trouble is; "America sneezes and the world catches a cold". COVID-19 aside, at least with Joe Biden as President I feel he will strongly attempt to repair Trumps & Pompeo disastrous international diplomacy and the absolute ignorance and wreaking of geo treaty's and agreements that have stood the test of time, all for the selfish nonsense of America first and stuff the rest of the world.
It has only been America's Might and the complaisant of UK, France & Germany and yes even China, that has prevented our World from going into another geo melt down. America used to be called; "The Worlds Policeman", Trump has in four years made it, America; "The Worlds Biggest Joke" and countries like China are leaping in to take advantage of that (eg. South China sea area). It also has allowed the likes of Brazil's President Jair Bolsonaro and Turkey's president Erdogan and similar Far Right and populist leaders to thrive (and be Trumpists). Their geo-polical ignorance and avoidance and the licking of each others derrière has torn apart international friendships, understandings and handshakes for which will probably take several US Presidency's to repair.
The latest Middle East Agreement may appear to be good news for the region but I fear it is a 'brave and bold step'. and if you read the fine print, it is all about SELLING American arms, technical and logistical assistance to anybody and everybody in that region. Money Money, makes the Trump world go around.
I am reminded of a "Yes Minister & Yes Prime Minister" adage where specifically, a "brave" decision was one that would lose you votes, whereas a "courageous" one was one that would lose you the election.
Lets hope that this is another nail in DJT's electoral coffin.
