  1. Trump and his administration have shown their hand, but they do need to be consistent, in that if other countries under take testing of Ballistic missiles then they to will have to sanctions placed on them.

    Where I do take issue with the Trump administration is the mentioning of military action, as now is not the time, if it ever is, to bring this into the equation.

    This is the old fashioned ‘Sabre rattling’, which should never be taken lightly, the days of the cavalry coming to the rescue is a relic of the era of cowboys, for we are now in the 21st century and not the 19th and early 20th centuries.

    Rather than military action coming to the for, this is the days of negotiation and diplomacy, shooting from the hip is so out dated.
