I think he’s a suicidal megalomaniac, and just wants to take down as much and as many with him.
I don't think this arrogant uber-lib ever intended to commit suicide by black op. I doubt that he ever stopped to consider that the sort of stuff you see in James Bond movies actually happens in real life.
He's fatally naive, and will soon pay a price for angering some of the world's most deadly regimes.
Don’t megalomaniacs, by definition, want to rule the world?
How then can he be a megalomaniac?
