Beginnings of wars are tricky, and you have to look carefully for the signs.
Whenever there are countries sizing each other up, an international manufacturing competition, diplomats being expelled, war might be on the horizon.
Perhaps the threat of war is necessary when it comes to countries who use secret weapons to hurt the American nation.
According to a report from The Independent Journal Review, President Trump’s administration carried on to cut ties with Cuba, as it told fifteen diplomats, that they need to to leave Cuba’s embassy in D.C. in a week’s time.
Rex Tillerson, the Secretary of State, said that Cuba failed to “take appropriate steps” after the alleged “attacks” on American personnel in the Caribbean country. He revealed that the United States Department of State is looking into the attacks, which allegedly caused 22 American diplomats to have an ill health.

Just to remind you, the United States embassy staff in Cuba were suddenly becoming gravely ill, for some unknown reason. None of the symptoms were normal. They were experiencing dizziness, loss of hearing , loss of balance, dementia.
One of the theories was that someone in Cuba was experimenting with a new weapon, either in collaboration with the government or with a foreign power.
The strange thing was that in was only American diplomats who were falling ill.
Even though there wasn’t enough evidence to declare a war, that didn’t mean that Cuba shouldn’t have been put warned.
As it appears Tillerson did precisely this when he sent the ambassadors back home.
"Investigators have been unable to determine who is responsible or what is causing these attacks," Tillerson said. https://t.co/ABsaiJSGBr

He at least did it in a diplomatic way.
Tillerson said in a statement : “Until the Government of Cuba can ensure the safety of our diplomats in Cuba, our embassy will be reduced to emergency personnel to minimize the number of diplomats at risk of exposure to harm.”
He is basically saying that Cuba can’t keep American diplomats safe, which is a big deal for the diplomatic world.
The threat Tillerson made was a diplomatic one, but it was nonetheless effective.
