Trump wants to "privatize" the war in Afghanistan.

This brainchild of Steve Bannon, the nuttiest of the nutcases, and son-in-law Jared Kushner would essentially mean the president of the United States would now have his own army.

Comparisons to Hitler, so far avoidable, are now unavoidable. Hitler created a private bodyguard which developed into his private army known to history as the SS which eventually challenged the regular army Wehrmacht in size and influence. No need to review the atrocities committed by the SS in Poland and Russia during WW2.

Heading this army would be Eric Prince, the brother of Janet DeVos, Secretary of Education.

After only six months in office (about on a par with Hitler's actions in his first six months in power) Trump's tendencies toward dictatorship are becoming more and more apparent. They scoffed at Hitler too, thinking the "establishment" (read today's Republican leadership) could contain him, only tolerating him to advance the policies of the right-wing elites (true of Germany then and the US today).

Scary? You bet!!

Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
