If there’s one thing President Trump has done, it’s reintroduce us to the geo-political stage with force and power.
Obama’s idea of foreign policy was an apology tour that made us the laughing stock of the world, and served to make us look like pathetic weaklings.
We lost a ton of respect from foreign nations, but it seems we’re finally getting some of that back.
It all started with Trump bombing a Syrian air base after they launched a chemical gas attack on innocent civilians. Then, today, he authorized dropping a MOAB (Mother of All Bombs) on ISIS.
And to put the icing on the cake, he’s taking on North Korea’s short and stout tyrant, sending him a message that’s unmistakable: chill or else.
According to The Washington Examiner:
A Japan-based combat-ready Air Force wing showed off its aircraft Wednesday in a clear warning to North Korea.
Fox News reported the 18th Wing conducted a surprise military exercise at Kadena Air Base in Japan as North Korea is rumored to be nearing a sixth nuclear weapons test.
A group of HH-60 Pave Hawks, F-15 Eagles, E-3 Sentries and KC-135 Stratotankers all took part in the exercise, the report said. Photos from the no-notice event showed jets lined up down the entirety of a runway on the base.
Such exercises are known as an “elephant walk,” featuring planes taxiing in tight formation before takeoff.
China has warned North Korea’s adversaries not to make any rash actions because “military force cannot resolve the issue,” according to Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi.
Military action isn’t the answer? Well, if China has a better idea on how to rein in Kim Jong-Un why aren’t they implementing it in order to reach a more peaceful resolution?
No one wants war or combat, which is precisely why this action was taken. It was a warning to North Korea, a country that’s simply grown far too bold, to calm down before they pick a fight they can’t win.
Clearly, we finally have a leader with a backbone in office, making it known around the world the USA is back in action, and we mean business.
