GUIDED BY ‘WARRIOR MONK’ DEFENCE SECRETARY, DONALD TRUMP TAKES ON AFGHANISTAN, SYRIA. NORTH KOREA NEXT?

The article originally appeared on India Today.
Here it is bit modified.

The United States yesterday dropped the biggest non-nuclear bomb in the history of humankind. A C-130 aircraft dropped the massive 21,000 pound Massive Ordnance Air Blast bomb (MOAB) that is also called the ‘Mother of All Bombs on tunnels believed to be used by the ISIS’s Khorasan module. The reports emerging in the aftermath say over dozens of the ISIS fighters have been killed in the attack.

Today, it is in Afghanistan. Last week, it was a Syrian military airbase was targeted by the US with 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles after it was suspected that the airbase was used by the Syrian regime to launch chemical attack on civilians that killed over 100.

Then the US has warned North Korea of unilateral action if other global powers don’t come in its support and pre-empting a US action, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has ordered to immediately evacuate Pyongyong, the North Korean Capital city. To cap the tension, there are reports based on satellite images that North Korea is preparing for another nuclear test while the US has clearly warned a pre-emptive strike if North Korea goes ahead with another nuclear test.

Welcome to the command of James Mattis, the US Secretary of Defense who is known as a ‘warrior monk’ and one of his favourite quotes are, “Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.”

US President Donald Trump who said he was very, very proud of the US military action in Afghanistan and congratulated ‘great military men and women of the US for doing so well in the Syria attack’, had said, while announcing James Mattis as his Secretary of Defense, “All I can say is he is the real deal. The real deal”.

And going by the recent US action, it seems Trump, indeed, is getting returns on his real deal and Mattis, indeed, has a plan to kill or punish everybody who doesn’t fall in line, be it the Syrian regime or the ISIS or North Korea or anyone else labelled to be hostile to the US national interest or to create disorder in the world.

General Mattis was with Marine Corps for over 40 years and retired in 2013 when he was heading the US Central Command (Centcom). known for his controversial decisions and tough wartime approach, he is revered for his career among his supporters and is nicknamed ‘mad dog’ for his uncompromising attitude and views in the theatres of conflict and with quotes like the one mentioned above and many more that have come to be known as ‘Mattism’.

He has had extensive experience of handling command operations in the 1991 Gulf War, in 2001 Afghanistan War and in 2003 Iraq Invasion. And, going by the state of affairs, we are going to see more and more of Mattism that believes that “The first time you blow someone away is not an insignificant event. That said, there are some a**holes in the world that just need to be shot.”

And North Korea fits in that line of thinking. In a London conference on March 31, Mattis had said about North Korea, “Right now, it appears to be going in a very reckless manner in what its conduct is portraying for the future and that has got to be stopped.” And days after it Donald Trump tweeted to reiterate that stand, “North Korea is looking for trouble. If China decides to help, that would be great. If not, we will solve the problem without them!”

THE YOUNG KIM HAS SPOKEN AGAIN!

The Young (and Plump) Kim says his Rogue Nation is in the final leg of launching a nuclear capable Inter Continental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) that will be as ballistic as his tenure and words have been, ever since he took over the reins of the Rogue Nation in a December five years ago from the Great Rouge, who, in turn, had inherited the Rogue Nation from the Greatest Rouge ever walked in that part of the world.

Now it is another thing that this Young (and Plump) Kim can surpass even that Greatest Rogue in Rogueness.

Every Rogue of the Rogue Nation, be it the Greatest Rogue or the Great Rogue or the Young Rogue, have had this dream that one day their Roguness will go beyond the Greatness they already have once they have an ICBM that can carry weapons (including state of the art Rogue Nation’s nukes) to the Mightiest Nation on the Earth.

And they have been practicing it since ages – weighting for that moment to arrive.

Like it happens, the whole nature has conspired to derail that dream of the Greatness of the Rogue Nation.

But they have toiled hard. And have been consistent with their efforts.

Be it the Greatest Rogue or the Great Rogue or now the Young Rogue.

So while cementing their position as the undisputed representative of their people, giving them that rare hope to look at the bright side of life, something that no one knows when was last seen in the lives of the commoners of the Rogue Nation, they are also continuing with the mammoth cost that goes in building the Rogueness of their lands. Obviously, theirs must be very, very heavy hearts.

So, if the people of the Rogue Nation are making great sacrifices, their representatives are setting even bigger an example.

They are together in this quest it looks – the representatives are giving hopes – even if it means by coercive measures, as happens in case of larger societal interest – and people are buying those hopes, because they have no other option – after living a life of extreme hardship that the nature has forced them into.

Hope is the only trending commodity in the Rogue Nation available in abundance, thanks to the persistent efforts of its Rogues.

And how consistent the Rogues have been with their efforts becomes visible from the fact that the global community has been hooked since ages to any development that comes out from the Rogue Nation’s nuclear programme and its warning messages on how the nukes riding on the Rogue Nation’s great ICBMs will wreak havoc in the Mightiest Nation on the Earth.

And like they are developing their nukes and ICBMs and are on the brink of breaking-even, as the Young Kim (Rogue) let us know in his New Year message, they have been consistent with dishing out their messages, packaging them in ever more interesting formats, to let the world know that when it will be, how big it will be – the Rogue Nation’s wrath on the Mightiest Nation on the Earth.

And even in doing so, so diligently, they never forget the welfare side of it – of giving hope to their people – who are told that these messages are true and the Rogue Nation has already decimated the Mightiest Nation on the Earth – and is preparing for even great greater a feat.

They are practicing it. And in the larger interest, they are making their people practice it.

Immune from all – from the words coming out from the Mightiest Nation on the Earth – even if it is from the Mightiest Person of the Mightiest Nation as he asserted yesterday that the Rogue Nation’s ICBM won’t happen. He tweeted, “The Rogue Nation just stated that it is in the final stages of developing a nuclear weapon capable of reaching parts of the Mightiest Nation on the Earth. It won’t happen!.”
