"Although perhaps more to America itself than towards other countries."

    From the economic perspective, I want Hillary Clinton to be president because with Mr Trump everything would be uncertain.

    I don't believe there are any true liberals in the presidential race, and the difficulty with Clinton is that she doesn't really provide much of a reason to support her.

    On the other hand, what can be said is that she would be a better president than the alternative.

    I don't expect her to become a great president, but she would at least be a little better than Mr Trump, who is very careless about the things that he says. He just blurts things out and then must apologise.

    I don't trust that his policies towards Japan would be balanced, and from that perspective I don't like him. I also think that he would be dangerous, though perhaps more to America itself than towards other countries.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
