wwjd, In most cases "dictators" last quite a while. Just look at Castro of Cuba and others. In some of our "threads" we called Trump as made of "teflon". If you see and read how often he escaped "justice" then that says enough. Also the way he's preparing for 2024 shows his fanatic stamina which may be succeed, due to the fact that at least 40% of the people still support him. In the meantime he has his "shady helpers" like Manchin and plenty of others undermine what Biden wants. The picture does not look good, because the Dem's don't seem to have an strategy to "fight" the "GOP's undermining" process. It looks like an "football" game full with dirty tricks and no "oversight", like the Supreme Court, which is in the hands of the "mean" ones.
Like their non-judgement or decision on "abortion" in Texas and other issues. Just like an "football game" played in the "fog" without judges.
IMO, Castro and other dictators survive because it is in the best interest of the US and other countries to leave them in power.
As far as Trump, if he were to return the WH and then start destroying countries using US economic weapons, there are countries that would at least make an effort to have him "Retired". Dictatorships countries have closed borders, the US does not. If an organization like Mossad wanted to take out any president, IMO, they would have over 90% chance of success because they have the experience, resources, and intel to make the operation successful without being discovered even after the fact. They have not made such attempts because so far no US president has been a big enough threat to their country. Trump as a US President is a huge threat to the entire world because he is willing to go WAY TOO FAR to get what he wants. He does not give a GD if other countries go into economic ruin if he is able to personally make money from it. Trump would be perfectly content with 1% of the world population controlling 99.9% of power and resources, and everybody else lives in poverty on less than $1 per day; makes for cheap labor him.
Publically known "hits" are in the media because they want it to be public info, not because counter-intelligence figured it out; part of the plan in some cases is to send a message to others, other times it is not. It is my speculation that most individuals that get taken down are done so without any evidence left behind and done so in a manner that makes the death appear natural (ie heart attack, etc). Think about it, the best spies and hitmen are those that remain invisible, they are not public figures like James Bond.
