Dear Editor,

Early 20th-century US President Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt (a true warrior; proven, brave in battle) often said: “Speak softly and carry a big stick!”

The so-very-shallow Barack Obama (except when ‘eliminating’ bin Laden) often talked softly, whilst losing America’s big stick (especially against Putin, in the Baltic regions)!

The enigmatic Donald Trump (so very dearly needed to confront China by today’s weak-kneed Western world) has so often talked so very, very loudly, whilst so very often, so very wildly waving America’s big stick about; he’s gone, and bloody well belted himself (and the West) over the head with it!
