"Each incident prompted questions about Trump's wider foreign policy
" "It's hard to figure out exactly what the strategic view of this is," Jon
Alterman, a global security expert at the Center for Strategic and
International Studies (CSIS), told The Hill."
It is most readily apparent that The Whining Donald has no real strategy or
approach to these international issues except for his "Look here, not there"
track record, where yesterday's issue is forgotten/superseded by today's
issues. Indeed, one is left to wonder to what issue will The Whining Donald
turn in order to make forgotten his Whining Donald inaction to that
unsuccessful North Korean missile test. In the meanwhile, of course, amid
all this brouhaha of Syria, the Mother of All Bombs in Afghanistan, and
North Korea is lost the issue of The Whining Donald's minions being
investigated for associating with Russia.
Fun, fun, fun!!!
National security issues have multiplied for President Trump in recent
weeks, with complex conflicts and problems abroad competing for his
Trump's strike against a Syrian airfield prompted questions about his
long-term strategy in the region. But those questions were usurped a week
later when the military dropped the "mother of all bombs" in Afghanistan,
giving new attention to America's longest war.
Days later, attention shifted to North Korea, with fears mounting that the
country could conduct its sixth nuclear test.
The confluence of hot spots around the globe is testing Trump as he nears
the 100-day mark of his presidency.
"The world is a lot more complicated now than it ever has been," said Alex
Ward, a national security expert at the Atlantic Council. "If you're looking
at Syria, North Korea, et cetera, a lot of these are issues that the Obama
administration had left - very intractable problems - left to the other
"Trump has promised two things. He's promised to do the opposite of Obama,
and he promised to solve issues quickly. Now he's trying to solve
intractable problems on a very fast timeline."
