It appears that the strike against Syria may have had a double meaning after all. At least where Gen. Mattis and President Trump come into play. It is highly possible that the response to the chemical attack last week in Syria left the two masterminds with a good way to make a point to a tiny dictator across the globe.
Insiders close to Trump are saying that the President was tactically sending a very strong message to N. Korea.
Secretary of Defense Mattis can be quoted from a couple weeks ago as stating, “We are working diplomatically, including with those that we might be able to enlist in this effort to get North Korea under control. But right now it appears to be going in a very reckless manner. That’s got to be stopped.”
Secretary of State Tillerson also released a statement after North Korea launched their latest missile test this week, letting the world know that Trump’s America means business. “North Korea launched yet another intermediate range ballistic missile,” the statement read, according to CNN. “The United States has spoken enough about North Korea. We have no further comment.”
Now THAT is a very telling and very direct message if I do say so myself. The time for playing around with volatile dictators has come to an end. America will no longer calmly watch as the world leaders around the globe continue to mock us.
Trump did what he had to do in order to make that these dangerous individuals understood that we mean business.
What do you think about the message that Trump sent? Will this deter those that mean to cause us harm? I certainly hope.
