The Saker spells out clearly what the resignation of General Flynn means:
Trump is now clearly broken. It took the ‘deep state’ only weeks to castrate Trump and to make him bow to the powers that be. Those who would have stood behind Trump will now feel that he will not stand behind them and they will all move back away from him. The Neocons will feel elated by the elimination of their worst enemy and emboldened by this victory they will push on, doubling-down over and over and over again.
It’s over, folks, the deep state has won.

This is the equivalent of John Hinckley shooting Ronald Reagan - it sets the tone for the rest of the Trump presidency.
Isn't it about time we recognize that the US deep state plays dirty pool all the time? How then can we claim to be a shining city on a hill?
