After Success in Syria, President Trump Sets His Sights on Neutralizing Threat Posed by North Korea

(Before It's News)

The U.S. bombardment of a Syrian airbase just outside of Homs Friday was likely seen by North Korea as a clear warning that President Trump will use his military if United States interests are at risk.

EDITOR’S NOTE: After 8 years of taking as little action as possible and letting nearly every nation on Earth walk all over us, it’s quite startling to see America be America once again. This is the America I remember. Strong, unafraid, and willing to take the steps necessary to combat evil in the world. And at some point, sooner rather than later, Russia and Iran are going to try Trump on for size and really see how much resolve he has. That’s when things will really get interesting. 

The immediate focus after the strikes was on Russia’s Vladimir Putin’s reaction. Russia was not happy with the U.S., it spoke in defense of Syria and moved warships. But now the attention is on the next move by another world leader: Kim Jong-Un.

Gordon Chang, a Daily Beast columnist and author of “Nuclear Showdown: North Korea Takes On The World,” said in an emailed statement to Fox News Friday that the U.S. strike on the Syrian airfield “tells North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un that he must now heed American military power, something that he probably dismissed before.”

“Kim’s father, Kim Jong Il, disappeared from public view for about six weeks in 2003 at the time of the Iraq war. Kim Jong-Un loves the public spotlight, and it will be telling if he similarly goes into hiding,” the author said.

President Trump is pleased with the Syria strike outcome:

The airstrikes are “a warning to China’s People’s Liberation Army, which had grown dismissive of the U.S. Navy and Air Force.  Xi Jinping, the Chinese leader visiting Mar-a-Lago, almost certainly interpreted the strike as a sign of disrespect to him,” Chang said.

Retired four-star Gen. Jack Keane told Fox News on Wednesday that the U.S. is “rapidly and dangerously heading towards the reality that the military option is the only one left when it comes to getting North Korea to denuclearize and not weaponized [intercontinental ballistic missiles].”

Trump made it a point to address the media about the Syria strike at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida just moments after dining with his Chinese counterpart President Xi Jinping.

The strike was a culmination of a rapid, three-day transformation for Trump, who has long opposed deeper U.S. involvement in Syria’s civil war. Advisers said he was outraged by heartbreaking images of young children who were among the dozens killed in the chemical attack and ordered his national security team to swiftly prepare military options. The Los Angeles Times reported up to 15 dead in the strikes. A Syrian official said six were killed at the base and nine others in surrounding areas. The death toll could not be independently confirmed.

“This is Trump saying, ‘No, I am a man of my words,’” Reva Goujon, the vice president of Stratfor, told CNBC. “’When I make a threat, I will follow through.’ That’s certainly something the Chinese and North Koreans will be thinking about.”

Trump has said that if China doesn’t exert more pressure on North Korea, the U.S. will act alone. The missile strikes on Syria bring more weight to that statement. source

  • Well Stump has shown his colors. Has sold us out, period. His roots among the American people are dying and soon like a diseased Birch tree he will break off and fall hard to the ground. Oh dear, what to do? Perhaps the American public should shake its bloody head, take a deep breath and rise up with the intelligence and strength that has always been in its body politic. Don’t wait for long haired preachers to come down from the hills or wait for more creatures who will rise from the swamp at behest of the black hidden wanna be rulers. Roll up your sleeves Uncle Sam and start the fight for your America as your forefathers did. Your own efforts will produce the leaders that you need. Go for it or just bow your heads and drink the bitter gall that will be given to you.
    Remember the fighting poem: Rise like lions from your slumber ……… Shake the chains that have fallen on you, for you are many and they are few!!!!!!!

    • Anyone waiving that terrorist the enemy of humans…they are the terrorist period!! we need to make citizens arrest of all district attys…..they love thier victimless crimes…extortion…i for one cant wait to be nuked….fbi sure enjoy killing your children “oklahoma bombing” you should here the fraudsters tapes!!

  • success…most of us think it was his biggest mistake yet..and it may well provide his opposition with the perfect excuse to impeach him

  • If anyone calls this success, what will failure look like?

    • DK

      What ever the CNN green screen graphics make it look like.

  • I thought Trump said he was going to work with Putin? He fell for the “children gassed scenario”. If criminal Obama pulled this stunt, all of the conservatives would be screaming bloody murder!

    I guess it doesn’t really matter though because it looks like Damascus will officially become a ruinous heap and America will soon be destroyed by God for her sins. :shock:

    • DK

      Damascus is already a ruined heap, it is the centre of 6 years of civil war. Air strikes from Israel, and the Government along with lots of artillery have made short work of it.

      • Yes,but not completely. Isaiah 17:1 states that it will cease to be a city. Assad still is in power and people still live there. The prophecy has not been fulfilled yet but it seems like it could be soon.

        • so they want to fulfill prophecy asap :roll: :eek:

          • I hope not. I was hoping to live my life out with not seeing WW3. :sad:

          • “…Isaiah 17:1…”

            Not bad for a 2750 year old prophecy, eh?

            And considering the Apostle Peter’s reminder that a day is as 1000 years in the eyes of the LORD…

            …about all any of us should be saying right now is:

            Uh oh.

  • The only thing Americans praise is oil in Syria’s pipelines to Europe.

  • Hacker Group Releases Password To NSA’s “Top Secret Arsenal” In Protest Of Trump Betrayal

  • Trump is now arguably a war criminal.

  • BIN articles like this just make it more obvious how these are posted or sponsored by CIA or some other infiltrated “Pro Trump” group that trumpets whatever this idiot does.
