With Obama still president, the only person more mindful that Obama still has another seven months of havoc creation time available is Obama himself. Here is Victor Davis Hanson discussing How Barack Obama’s Foreign Policy De-Stabilized the World. But with time running out on Obama, as Hanson notes, this is prime time for troublemaking while Obama is still around:
Aggressors are not sure whether Hillary Clinton, if elected, will govern more like a traditional Democratic president committed to leading the Western alliance. And if Donald Trump were to be elected, no aggressor would know exactly why, when, or how he might strike back at them.
Given those uncertainties, it may seem wise in the waning months of 2016 for aggressors to go for broke against the predictable Obama administration before the game is declared over in 2017. For that reason, the next few months may prove the most dangerous since World War II.
