Lets Get Real:
As this blog posted yesterday the main threats for the first Trump Term will be Iran and North Korea, the President has stated that ALL OPTIONS are on the table, this can be seen as a red line, a warning to Iran to back off missile testing or face a military strike. In this President can not make the same mistake as President Obama did over Syria, he threatened military action should the Assad Regime use chemical weapons against its own people, when Assad followed through and called the Obama bluff the President was shown to be weak when he did not respond. One can only hope that Trump has learnt that lesson. Thus we will have to see if Iran tests a new missiles, if it does then Trump must react in some form, military or economic, the clock is ticking.
