Donald Trump has attacked Syria with cruise missiles because of its use of chemical weapons (chemical weapons that it supposedly got rid of and agreed not to use). What happens next, as Bashar al-Assad continues to bomb Syrian cities he doesn’t control, is the question. The cruise missile attacks were relatively easy. What happens next is harder – and may be what stopped Barack Obama from doing anything.
But harder still is North Korea. President Trump has said that, if China won’t help us stop North Korea from getting not only nuclear weapons but also an ICBM capable of hitting the United States, we will do it ourselves. Now that is hard.
