By nature, my reaction is to want to launch a thousand missiles at North Korea and wipe their entire country off the map. They are basically the world's internet troll. And their harmless trolling is now advancing to a point where they are getting close to having weapons and transport systems capable of doing damage to the U.S.   The fact that they're not there yet gives us a little extra cockiness when dealing with them.  The problem, obviously, is that they are very capable of doing damage to South Korea, China, Japan, etc. Anything we do to slap that little fat mongoloid on the nose, puts millions in immediate danger. Millions of citizens from ally countries.  It is a super delicate situation. And to add to that, their leader is not a logical man. He doesn't think like most people. Hard telling what that lunatic is willing to risk.
It's fun arguing this stuff on message boards. But the reality of it is, none of us have any clue what the best approach is. This is where we sit back and trust that our generals and military officials understand the ramifications of being aggressive with them.  One reassuring thing is that John McCain said that this current military defense/security team is as fine as any he's ever seen.  And that means something coming from McCain. He can't stand Trump and thinks he's as big of a buffoon as I do. So he wouldn't just make that statement to pat the administration on the back.


Great post.

Do you think China will intervene, either then, or even later?


Maybe. But keep in mind, we are China's best customer. It's in their best interests to get N Korea in line, which should be the goal with this action.

Yea - that's kind of what I was thinking.. Commerce has a way of swaying allegiances - I hope it's a big enough chip to play.

We need to nip this entire NK having nukes thing in the but before it actually becomes a problem.

Some of you act like just getting rid of him is easy.
How many troops do we have in SK right now? You know if he wanted to do something...those men and women would be bombed first.

Damn right you work to do this diplomatically. The way 3 former presidents have done. And you work with China to put even more economic pressure on them. And you damn well sure let him know (and he already does) that there is no end game of attacking us or our interests where he doesn't end up dead and much of his country reduced to rubble.

But to claim its just so simple as some of you act...just focking stop.

That is why we moved the anti-missile system to the SK border, hopefully it works, that is what it is there for. Send in the boys, clean house, lets get it done.

Times like these are when you can tell he's in his twenties. He can't think in nuances.  If North Korea was an island in the middle of nowhere, his solution would be awesome. But he can't think beyond that.

They have been doing that for years (testing things)....advocating for peaceful solutions is not just standing on the sidelines.  Its the realization of what war with NK means.

And recently they have become much more aggressive and it needs to be addressed before it becomes a real issue. War is never good, but sometimes needed. Kimmy needs to get shut down.

They have become more aggressive, maybe seeing how far they can go. There is a saying that says "you may not be interested in war, but it may be interested in you".

They are testing Trump because they believe he is weak.  So is Russia.  That's why they wanted him to win so badly.

what's being investigated is whether or not Trump collided with them. The investigation is closed regarding whether or not they did interfere with the election. This is no longer in dispute

LOL. It's hysterical. Even if they end up concluding that Trump did not have anything to do with it, they will never admit that Russia tampered with our election because then they would have to be faced with answering the question of why do you think they wanted Trump to win so badly. Because Trump is better for our enemies than Hillary would have been. Very easy one to answer. Putin knows that Trump is a bumbling idiot. He knew that the US would no longer be any competition. So these website Warriors think they know more than the entire FBI. As they sit home picking their noses and eating a Klondike Bar.

Many of them also liked the American First...Isolationist Trump...stated Hillary would be more likely to get us into war. Now here they are advocating regime change in Syria and NK.

Just another aspect to consider and how much it all effects when making such a decision to go to war.
