Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad and the North Korean man-child Dictator Kim Jong-Un have been used to 8 years of an American President with no backbone or the guts to make the hard choice when it comes to dealing with these murderous leaders. For 8 years both countries basically got away with the unimaginable. Because of President Obama’s lack of leadership, lines were crossed and crossed again in Syria, and North Korea now has nuclear weapons.
The Trump Administration has lost patience with the Syrian and North Korean regimes thinking they can do what they want, gassing innocent civilians, and in North Korea’s case, murdering Otto Warmbier. Our country has reached a point where we can no longer tolerate this abuse of human life.
In a recent security conference, President Donald Trump’s National Security Adviser, H.R. McMaster stated in reference to North Korea, “The threat is much more immediate now and so it’s clear that we can’t repeat the same approach – failed approach of the past”. He is, of course, referring to the Obama Administration not doing their job when they had the opportunity. The President of South Korea, Moon Jae-in has indicated Kim Jong Un is not willing to negotiate, and he recognizes that more drastic steps must be taken in order to get North Korea under control. South Korean and U.S. forces have increased along the Korean Peninsula as the Trump Administration is now considering a military option when it comes to North Korea. As much as this scares me, it is about time America does what it does best, and send a clear message to Kim Jong-Un that we are not going to take crap anymore. The party is over. North Korea will no longer be allowed to get away with what they have in the past. What is in store for the future is not known. Will US forces be sent to North Korea? Will we bomb North Korea? It’s uncertain at this point. What is clear is the Trump Administration is examining all options, including military force when dealing with North Korea.
In a country thousands of miles away, Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad has been busy killing and abusing his own people, with new reports coming out of the Pentagon that the Syrian Regime is preparing for another chemical attack. As reported by Lucas Tomlinson of Fox News, “The Pentagon is seeing new activity “associated with chemical weapons” at a Syrian aircraft hangar where a previous chemical attack on civilians is believed to have originated, multiple defense officials said Tuesday, hours after the White House issued its new warning to President Bashar Al-Assad”. In other words, the Trump Administration is mad as hell, and they are not taking it anymore. The Syrian President better understand this is not another Obama in the red line statement with no teeth. I firmly believe that President Trump will not hesitate for one second, to do whatever is necessary to deal with President Bashar Al-Assad, up to and including sending him to heaven with 70 virgins.
The same goes for Kim Jong-Un, as he could meet a similar fate. Whether it is US and South Korean forces who topple the North Korean Regime, or a different military and/or economic approach, there is going to come a day when Americans are going to wake up to the news that we have in some fashion engaged North Korea. I’m not sure what this will look like given North Korea has nuclear weapons but the day is coming. If I’ve learned anything about President Donald Trump is that he does not like to loose, and he does not like to be bullied. He and his administration are not going to sit around sucking their thumbs, like Obama did, and let Syria or North Korea get away with murder. America is a new country with a new leader who has his finger on the button and is not afraid to press it. God bless America.
