“Calm Before the Storm… You’ll Find Out” The President’s Cryptic Message

Friends of Padre Steve’s World,

Last night President Trump met with high ranking military officers at the White House. After the meeting where he pressed them, without being specific to his intent, pressed the leaders to be faster at providing him with “military options” when needed. He said: ““Moving forward, I also expect you to provide me with a broad range of military options, when needed, at a much faster pace. I know that government bureaucracy is slow, but I am depending on you to overcome the obstacles of bureaucracy.”

After the meeting at a photo op prior to dinner he quipped to reporters “You guys know what this represents?” Then remarked “Maybe it’s the calm before the storm.” When a report asked “What storm” the President said “you’ll find out.”

After all of the President’s saber rattling with North Korea and Iran I truly am afraid. Could it be more bluster? Yes, but I always go back to history and history shows that words like Trump’s often bring about war.

So until tomorrow,

  1. Unfortunately, where we all see a potential war that’s needless and would kill millions, Trump sees a reality show with a cliffhanger that will keep everyone paying attention to him. That’s honestly what he sees when he looks at North Korea, and it’s how he will conduct policy. What’s best for Trump? What will keep people tuning in and clicking on his Twitter feed? That’s what he wants above all.

      I know, a man who is a child that avoided military service of any kind seems intent on bringing about a catastrophic war, or wars. I have never, going back to the days of MAD during the Cold War been so concerned and frightened
