Ok Donald, now your first strike of foreign policy choices have been made. 

To be honest, I am not that impressed with the strategic choices, but I do like the tempo. 

First of all, strategy in business and in warfare hold some of the same components. You worry about your resources, you make a plan that needs to come to fruition, and you worry about the morale of your employees. 

There are many other factors that are not alike, but these basic traits are, more or less, the same. 

The fight against ISIS is so far evolved, that the answers to those question are pretty straightforward, and they have been answered just fine. This war, which is, basically, the most important to you, should really be your first priority. This means focusing on getting NATO up and running with the aim of beating ISIS, helping Al-Sisi, worrying about what is happening in Europe. 

Secondly, there is China. I understand that you somehow made a deal with them in order to contain North Korea. 

This really eludes me. I mean why even accepting the help of China. I can understand it, if you want to make a conventional war. But usually the way Reagan fought Communism, was with the CIA. That is secret ops, regime change and the like. 

Communism usually leaves the people pretty unhappy, so they are open to new ideas. 

If you go with CIA option, you do not need China.

China however is a whole different piece of challenge. 

They are actually pretty happy there, and as a consequence the CIA will be useful, but who knows in this situation. 

They are a much larger threat to US interest, they are stealing the jobs, and they are threatening US allies. 

This challenge is much larger, and should really be mulled over. The war is inevitable, so we better be prepared.

G-d bless the will to think straight in a difficult situation.
