However, also hearing today that he thinks it is a bad idea to get roped into more commitments to NATO, I think it's the first sensible comment I have heard him make.
I do think we need to de-escalate this whole scabre rattling scare mongering time we are living in.
It isn't in anyone's interests to promote wars, rumours of wars, or bad relationships with other countries.
I do think, as President Trump has said in the last few days, that the media have over-run our sanity.
we have been living in a fog of lies and deceit. How can we know the truth from what the media uses to 'disinform' us. We have been blinded to the sorrows of humanity by their lies. The lies that cover over child molestation, human suffering, famine, war crimes against humanity. The culpability is endless.
Is it the governments themselves who promote this media propaganda, or the wealthy with some kind of world order in mind? Whatever it is, it comes down to one thing, we have not 'loved our neighbour'.
For all the money spent on war we could fix up the whole world. We could enter a new age of co-operation. We could feed and educate the whole world, take care of the sick and elderly.
I did blame Mr Junker for the UK deciding to leave the EU. However even if article 50 is invoked it doesn't mean we have to leave. Perhaps if the EU were to radically alter their stance, there would still be an opportunity for reconciliation, and no need to leave the EU.
Still, it seems unlikely, when trade agreements were signed off against the wishes of the electorate. The ink is not dry yet, there must be a 'cooling off period' before the treaty comes into force. The whole of Europe at the moment is under so many pressures. I don't want to see Far right governments in power, yet people will vote for what they think will deliver the kind of Europe they want.
Politicians need to be above reproach, none of the French candidates running have a clean slate financially so it seems. I am not sure what the Germans are up to yet.
Perhaps it would be prudent to delay triggering the Brexit negotiation beginning for at least another six months until the Europeans have settled their elections, and had time to consider a little more about going through with a 'divorce' from the UK. A lot can change in six months.
