Until 2 years ago, Americans debated what was the right Foreign Policy & National Security Strategy. With Trump, the debate has changed to, “do we even have a Foreign Policy & National Security Strategy?”

Imagine being a strategic planner at Pentagon. You have no SecDef, Last year working on Mosul, Iraq, this year withdrawing/negotiating w/Taliban in Afghanistan, troops in Syria may withdraw but still ISIS, counter disinfo East Europe, POTUS talking invading N.Korea & Venezuela

You the look up to the news to find out President decided to create another branch of the military “Space Force” & later that the military exercises we’ve prepared with S.Korea might be cancelled.

Oh, and then I left out that you’re supposed to be focused on Americas only true near competitor, China, and what to do in the South China Sea
