#1 A new science of war has a chance to emerge now that drones and not people are the casualties. It will be interesting how Trump plays this new way of war.

In the past, the loss of military assets also meant the loss of life because those assets required humans to be at the controls. Now, unmanned is being relied on heavily by the Trump admin in the military and a first strike against these assets does not mean the loss of life any longer so the enemy just as well be shooting blanks and may get discouraged at a non response as long as life is not lost on our side and more heat from painful sanctions can be enacted.

Also, it seems that Trump has found a way to make threats that elicit a painful response from opponents that results in new negotiations in order to prevent him from pulling the trigger (Mexico illegal immigrants/threat of tariffs=Mexico activated their national guard to stop that; mobilizing to deport undocumented democrats then pulling back after demands by dems to negotiate immediately; threatening military action against Iran but stopping at the last minute and instead implementing more sanctions but at the same time offering to do lucrative deals that benefit their economy.

Trumps unique art of the deal is a bit unique compared to US past history in my opinion.

#2 The next Iranian shoot down of a US drone or targeting of a tanker will force Trump's resolve.My recommendation...start a 2nd carrier group on the way and remember the ole adage: "Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on ME!". He can only "push the button" or "grab the soap" now.
