The left wing loonies may now be happy that they have a strong, decisive leader who will, if necessary, take on this vertically challenged worm in North Korea.   Nah.....too much hate against the Republicans.

 

If the previous administration had balls, the situation would not have deteriorated to what we now see.

This 'what if' pass-the-buck scenario is brought to you by...

So the idiot in NK strikes Guam, kills thousands....what next?   You're suggesting the President should sit on his hands and say, "Bad luck, can't do anything because I don't have the confidence of the American people on this issue?"

 

Please be serious if you want to participate in an adult conversation.

If don't think Trump has either a golf course or resort in Guam, but he's not going to sit on his hands if this escalates. 

 

He will keep them firmly wedged in his armpits as he had when he made his truly cringeworthy, Saddam-esque 'fire and brimstone' threat... from his golf club. True master of body language he is.

 

But then he repeated it!

Fire and fury? So what, they are going back to the saturation bombing and napalm of the Korean war again that saw the whole north returned to the stone age? That will no doubt bring back some fond memories. In fact the Korean war is quite interesting when you read some history, similar to Vietnam in some ways with the US placing a disliked puppet in charge (democracy in action) of the place and repressing the nationalists that had just thrown out a colonial overlord. War eventually ensued for the many, but profits were enjoyed as usual by the few.

 

For history buffs, another interesting one is the US bombing of Manila in WW2, ugly death count in that one as well.

There's no doubt the US administration needs analysts like those posting here on TV, such clarity of thought, such tactical responses, such foolishness.

 

If Trump doesn't back up against this worm, he will walk all over whoever gets in his path.   Hopefully he'll realize before he sticks his head up too far, that it will be chopped off.  Bullies need to be opposed.

It's the same, perpetual game of whack-a-mole with the North Korean leadership. They always ramp it up when they want to be noticed (means they're broke and starving) and then China sends buys more coal and sends them some rice and Russia sends them some guns and tanks and it all evaporates with smiles and sudden offers to meet South Korean counterparts and the world moves on.

 

Notably this time, the UN SC was unanimous in backing the newer, tougher sanctions. All of a sudden NOBODY has his back and he feels very, very vulnerable.

 

I reckon a few of those bunker buster MOAB's lying rusting in Kandahar should be used on the known locations of missiles and military stockpiles in North Korea before they get beyond their sell-by dates. No need for nukes if their's can be taken out first. Plenty B-52's still in Guam?

It's funny...the Trump base wanted us to get out of foreign entanglements, cut ties and international agreements and focus on America. But now that they need a distraction from the sheer incompetency and plummeting poll numbers they are all in. Hypocrites.

 

Attacking NK will NOT get your coal mining jobs back, nor will it get you better health coverage, nor will it make America great again. Another war to make the Defense Industry more money and for Congressman to suck up to the taxpayer teat.

not to mention more Americans dying. Trump is playing a very dangerous game with his words, he has no idea how to handle situations like this. When sht hits the fan, he will just push the blame on someone else again.

Now for the good part: severe unemployment in this region, crime will go up, no taxes from tourists so all foreign teachers will be laid off, zero tourism business locally. That is only for Thailand. :thumbsup:

 

China will go into Taiwan and Russian into the Balkans. :sick:

 

What a world I am leaving my children. :sad:

Plenty of jobs for submariners though. Mai pen rai!

Jeez you are truly a brilliant military strategist. How did the US miss out on your clever reasoning. Not!

Seriously this just goes on and on. At some point the DNK will pass the point where it will go for it and then all hell will break loose. They have nothing to lose. Guam is a smokescreen, Japan and South Korea will fall in hours of this starting for sure. They need to take this very, very seriously. Kim Jon has been schooled for this, he knows nothing else and will not settle, ever. The US needs to take these guys very seriously and stop mocking them. They will destabilize this region for decades if this starts from their side first, that's for sure.

I guess Dubya's 'shock and awe' left you similarly unimpressed then.
