    So you say, Clyde, that we need more talks? maybe more sanctions? Who shall we send to N. Korea? Do we trust that? Remember the kid who came back with his brain destroyed because of a paper poster?

    I'm real interested in all the good ideas on what should be done, and who should do them. Okay let's take Trump out of the decisions. Now what?

    Question: If we make nice does that stop Kim?
    He's been making a lot of missile threats. If he doesn't come through he loses face. Answers anyone?

    Any thing is better than a pre-emptive strike on North Korea; but neither Kim nor Trump will bust a grape, its all saber rattling.

    On North Korea
    President Trump threatened North Korea with “Fire and Fury” in a statement that sounded like something Kim Jong Un would issue


    Let’s be clear — North Korea does not want war with the United States and the United States has little to actually fear from a war with North Korea. The American media has spent a great deal of time reporting on the ability of the North Korean regime to launch, perhaps, a missile at the United States as if this changes the balance of power on the Korean peninsula--It does not ...

    Like Trump, you don't understand the world stage, willa. Kim is doing what Kim does, and for the Donald, who knows what he's doing :facepalm: You cannot remove the POTUS from the equation, willa.


    Kim Jong Un doesn't need to strike Guam — he's already won

    ... But now Kim has publicly crossed Trump.
    Whether or not North Korea follows through with its threat, which is really just an announcement of the intention to create a plan to present to Kim, it has already dealt a severe blow to the US's credibility.

    That's a great question, Sis. IFE, and one that I would agree to your definition...soldiers returning home alive. But is that happening for a lot of our soldiers? I also agree with you about Trump's qualifications to order a war. His sanity is now being called into question. I find his body language very interesting. When he sits, he never leans back, always forward and in this press announcement about N. Korea, could he cross his arms any tighter?

    Many soldiers are aware of the politics of war. They don't talk about it because it could take them off focus from fighting for their lives. Their lives not the their country who sent them off to be killed for no reason. All soldiers will not return home. That's sad. I weep for each soldier who is killed in war.

    The Game Is Over and North Korea Has Won
    Donald Trump can whine all he wants, but we’re now living in a world where American power is less relevant than ever
