Showing off US military strength could work

With Donald Trump bombing Syria and then later following up with another strike dropping a "MOAB" in Afghanistan, it could help reduce the chance for major conflicts around the world.

Doug Kass writes, 
"The flight-to-safety trade -- a byproduct of rising political and geopolitical risks -- may be in the process of peaking as the world stage becomes convinced that while Trump's military initiatives have made headlines, they may not be as dangerous as many believe and will not likely result in major conflicts in North Korea, Syria and elsewhere."
