This place is about to blow
(6 Oct 2017) President Trump called a photo opportunity with his senior military staff at the White House the ‘calm before the storm’ but declined to clarify if he was talking about Iran, IS or something else.
““I put my trust in you to execute our mission aggressively and effectively, and you are delivering,” he said, promising to increase the military budget. . . . Moving forward, I also expect you to provide me with a broad range of military options, when needed, at a much faster pace,” he said. “I know that government bureaucracy is slow, but I am depending on you to overcome the obstacles of bureaucracy.”
““You guys know what this represents?” Trump asked the press, during a brief photo op after the dinner.
“Tell us,” a reporter replied.
“Maybe it’s the calm before the storm,” he hinted.
The president did not discuss further what he meant despite a flurry of follow-up questions from the press.

During an event in December 2018, Joseph Dunford criticized
Google for its “inexplicable” continued investing in autocratic, communist-led China while simultaneously not renewing further research and development collaborations with the Pentagon. “I’m not sure that people at Google will enjoy a world order that is informed by the norms and standards of Russia or China,” Dunford said. Dunford has urged that Google should work directly with the U.S. government instead of making controversial inroads into China.

This continued a series of regular meetings between the American and Russian military chiefs reestablished by Milley’s predecessor Joseph Dunford in 2017 to ensure open communication and avoid conflict, especially in Syria. The face-to-face meeting was arranged with the assistance of the incoming Swiss Chief of the Armed Forces Korpskommandant (Lieutenant General) Thomas Süssli.
