The period between Election Day and January 20 is a great time for a refresher course on the state of world today and what the next administration must do to ensure that the U.S. can juggle the equally important tasks of keeping this country secure and not overextending America’s diplomatic, economic, and military resources. Here are four realities that soon-to-be President Donald Trump will need to come to terms with.
- North Korea is already a nuclear state.
- Syria's Assad is likely to stay in power.
- Iraq is too dependent on the U.S.
- On nukes, at least, Iran cooperating.
