59 Missiles Don’t Equal a Foreign Policy

NY Times published an opinion at https://www.google.com/search?q=59+Missiles+Don%E2%80%99t+Equal+a+Foreign+Policy&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en-us

Trump's reaction to this conflict is unprecedented.  That was the exact concern from many voters about him being presidential and makimg mature decisions, instead of emotional outbusts.
In a related debate based on another NY Times piece, there is a big question if Trump's mew doctrine is no doctrine - and just a series of emotional outbursts.

Arguments

  • Trump is playing with fire. These are complex decisions and need to be weighed accordingly.  There is a full set of professionals who spend their careers with these types of stuff. Trump can't just rely on his gut when it comes to military actions.
    WhyTrump - a good question
  • In many ways Trump is demonstrating flexibility and agility in his policy making that is refreshing.  Not sure how much of the conspiracy theorists story that there is a master plan between Trump and Putin is actually warranted, but there maybe some truth to that as well.
    Live Long and Prosper
  • It's a better response that we'd seen in 8 years of Obama
  • @CYDdharta , you are making a great point.  Obama, in all his libertarian wisdom failed to act to help Syria, even after 2013 inhumane chemical weapon attacks
  • Trump made the right move, although he changed his view some what.
