What remains unclear, Mr Matus explains, is the spirit motivating the President’s tactical missile strike against Syria’s President Assad.
“Why would the eagle choose to be a crow? Or the panther a goat? Or President Trump Hillary Clinton? Perhaps those who believed they were following an easy path to MAGA need to go up on a mountain and regain their focus.
“Warriors have an ulterior purpose for their acts, which has nothing to do with personal gain. The average man acts only if there is a chance for profit. Warriors act not for profit, but for the spirit.
“When he agreed to fire missiles at the Syrian airfield where presumably the real or imagined poison gas attack originated, Mr Trump was hosting the President of China at Mar-a-Lago, Xi Jinping — the protector of a rogue North Korean regime that is threatening to use nuclear weapons against the United States and its allies in the Pacific Rim.
“Who, then, was this message designed for — Assad? ISIS? Putin? Kim Jong-un? Congress? The Opposition Party? The Neo-cons? Xi Jinping? All or none?
“And what was the message — was President Trump signaling that he had capitulated to the neo-cons, was abandoning the agenda that got him elected, and now his focus would change from MAGA to Making The Military-Industrial-Complex Great Again by plunging America into yet another pointless, destabilizing war in the Middle East to abet the neo-con agenda?
“What we know is that the President — unlike his predecessor — acted swiftly and decisively to right a perceived wrong.
“The chattering class will always be the chattering class. But the basic difference between the chattering class and a warrior is that a warrior takes everything as a challenge, while the chattering class takes everything as a blessing or as a curse.
“The time for imagining is over.”
