It doesnít sit quite right with me. I mean yes, obviously itís better that 150 people just going about their day jobs havenít been blown to hell, but as for Trumpís motivation? I keep thinking about the scene in Schindlerís List where the concentration camp commandant who is partial to randomly shooting inmates from his office window, just because he can, decides not to shoot one after being persuaded that the true measure of power is compassion and restraint. In that case, it was an appeal to his vanity that caused him to stay his hand, but his true nature reasserted itself soon enough and the next prisoner he spotted, got shot dead, just because he could.

I think Trump is known for acts of narcissism, not for acts of compassion.
