The Trump Effect

Trump attacks Syria just days before his meetings with the Chinese President.

Russia and Iran threaten the United States.

Trump doesn't back down. Instead, he tells Russia they are complicit in the chemical attack in Syria, because they didn't do enough to put the brakes on Assad's belligerence.

Then Trump sends a Carrier to Korea, and talks about arming South Korea with American nukes.

Europe is silent, knowing that the American President means what he says,

and China?

Well, China:

The first, if that about meat exports I don't think it will have a big impact.

The troops is a big deal. Those troops are either to prevent masses of Koreans flooding the border OR they are their to cross the border and clean up the mess...

Missile attacks are America's new way of apologizing to moslem nations and their leaders. Go Trump !

And ventilate that Nork's grey matter and put a possible end to the massive human suffering and abuse there.

I think to the extent that Trump was negotiating with China, this attack says he is someone to be reckoned with. And, I think it had an impact on China getting serious about dealing with Nork.

I agree that our attacks on Scuzlim nations do us no good. I think that to the extent that Trump was using the attack as a calling card to the world that his Presidency and America are going to be different the next 8 years, I think the attacks were very successful.
