Pompeo believes in “swagger” for the US

From The World Can’t Wait:
Speaking at the State Department this week, Mike Pompeo, Trump's new Secretary of State pledged that the U.S. will get its "swagger" back. 
Democrats raised a little alarm about Pompeo when he was up for CIA Director, noting that he had called for the execution of Edward Snowden and was against the closure of Guantanamo or the ending of NSA surveillance.  And then, they gave him the CIA to run.  When the State job came up, again, they said it was going to be "very difficult" for Trump to get him confirmed. 

That was a set-up to everyone who thought the Democrats would actually try to stop the Trump/Pence regime's candidate.

Only five days after being swiftly confirmed - with the votes of 7 Democrats - Pompeo made a quick trip to the closest U.S. allies in the Middle East:
Is that the cold swagger of a bully with more than 4000 nuclear weapons threatening to attack North Korea and/or Iran for either having a few nuclear weapons (North Korea) or having had possible plans to develop one which, according to international experts and inspection agencies, have been halted (Iran)?
