Donald Trump has already shown a willingness to support individual military strikes on specific targets, such as his recent strikes into Syria and Afghanistan. But it seems that he's now gearing up for some longer-term efforts in several areas, from recent news reports: - Sending arms to Syria: "President Trump has approved a plan to directly arm Kurdish forces fighting in Syria, the Pentagon said on Tuesday, inflaming already strained ties with Turkey and putting the U.S. military a step closer to seizing a remaining Islamic State stronghold." https://www.washingtonpost.com/news...against-islamic-state/?utm_term=.05eb9f7b6bc8 - Sending troops to Afghanistan: "Now the top brass is readying a proposal to send as many as 5,000 additional troops to help beat back the resurgent Taliban in a country where the U.S. is still waging its longest war. Trump will be presented the military options in the coming days, according to several administration officials." http://www.politico.com/story/2017/05/09/trump-afghanistan-troops-taliban-238179 I guess I've always expected Trump to act in this manner. It feels like how he does things; no overall plan or strategy, but a continual slow ratcheting up of force. Trump never backs down.
