President Trump has dropped a hint that a major military operation is coming. While posing for photos with military staff and their wives at a state dinner, the president made a chilling remark.
President Trump dropped a major hint that something big is coming, and it involves the military. But when, and where?
LOS ANGELES, CA (California Network) -- President Trump made a single comment last night that has alarmed the world. While posing with generals and their wives, Trump said: You guys know what this represents? Maybe it's the calm before the storm."
Reporters asked him to clarify the comment, and he only said, "It could be, the calm, the calm before the storm." He then added, "We have the world's great military people in this room, I will tell
you that. And uh. We're gonna have a great evening, thank you all for coming."
When asked again, he only said, "You'll find out."
Intelligence agencies from South Korea and the U.S. have suggested the North may be preparing another missile launch next week as the country celebrates the founding of its communist party.
The U.S. and its allies regard these launches as provocations. The North claims U.S. military exercises with South Korea are also provocations.
In response to North Korean missile launches, the U.S. has staged bomber flights in close proximity to North Korean airspace. The North has redeployed fighter jets to intercept these flights, and has threatened to shoot down any which come close, even if they do not violate Northern airspace.
Experts warn the tensions over North Korea could result in a political miscalculation and a war, which neither side would be able to stop.
President Trump has had several meetings with military officials to discuss North Korea. There are options available to the president to strike the North, but none of them can guarantee the safety of our allies in the region, which would bear the brunt of North Korean retaliation. There is also the risk of the North launching a nuclear weapon.
Experts also suggest President Trump could be talking about Iran, which has also exchanged a war of words with the United States over its nuclear disarmament agreement. Under agreement, Iran was to stop all nuclear development in exchange for aid, access to markets, and other perks. President Trump has said the deal is bad for the United States and he wants to scrap it.
There is also the possibility that President Trump is bluffing, and there is nothing in the works. As an experienced negotiator, he is always negotiating, even when he appears to be not working. A good negotiator pays attention to the â€˝meta-game," which is the overall impression given off by your ordinary activities. By posing with the military and suggesting something big is coming, President Trump is showing that he carries a big stick and that he is prepared to use it.
Such a belief can help the U.S. at the bargaining table, as nations come to believe the U.S. is able and willing to back its threats with actual force.
