Just watched a report on the BBC news from Guam . Many local people concerned as you would expect with the Japanese tourists more so and thinking of getting out , got a feeling that there could be a domino effect type stampede , exit wise . 

                       Problem is the talking is all but finished and this new dictator has to show his power . We have not seen anything like this before that I can recall in modern post war times . How do you deal with such a lunatic who is known to drink to the extreme and continue to give commands with such destructive weaponry at his disposal ? ?

errmm trump is a teetotaler or you referring to fat boy?

he is seeing that this could possibly be the start of the end of his empire .

 

And Trump is using the time honored strategy of diverting attention from one's abysmal domestic record and/or creating a macho cartoon-like PR image of oneself by picking a foreign issue to rally the masses. 

 

Ronald Reagan:

Quote

American troops who hit the beaches on the tiny Caribbean island of Grenada ... were bit players in a geopolitical comic opera. The invaders used photocopies of tourist maps, since the U.S. military had no maps of its own for the country. Communication was so confused that one officer had to call his base in North Carolina from a pay phone to request air cover. After an American bomb was mistakenly dropped on a mental hospital, dazed patients wandered aimlessly as heavily armed fighters emerged from surrounding cinnamon and allspice plantations, lending a surreal quality to the operation.

Thatcher:

Quote

Margaret Thatcher served as prime minister for more than 11 years, but it was arguably the 74 days she spent evicting the Argentine invaders from the Falkland Islands that did most to fix the image of an unbending, uncompromising leader in the British popular imagination.

My only concern would be for the many innocent lives that would die, or maimed.

   I'v had the chance to live my life so it's not about "me" anymore.

Mutual assured destruction or mutually assured destruction (MAD) is a doctrine of military strategy and national security policy in which a full-scale use of nuclear weapons by two or more opposing sides would cause the complete annihilation of both the attacker and the defender (see pre-emptive nuclear strike and second strike).[1] It is based on the theory of deterrence, which holds that the threat of using strong weapons against the enemy prevents the enemy's use of those same weapons. The strategy is a form of Nash equilibrium in which, once armed, neither side has any incentive to initiate a conflict or to disarm.

 

Let the two spoilt brats bully each other.

I read a story today that said North Korea was evading the sanctions by buying from Thailand and Malaysia. Thailand wouldn't do that would it? Does N Korea pay in dollars?

 

I would think that America would want to put pressure on any country abetting the avoidance of sanctions.

this is like how when u get invited to a party that you didn't want to go to but your friends somehow convinced you to go...  he decides to pick a fight with someone and next thing you know you are getting punched in the face!

 

Thaland - Us

America- friend

Korea - someone

 

Punches - Nukes to the face!

As part of the negotiation- Kim must agree to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula....



Exactly, negotiations that result in an agreement whereby Kim abandons his nuclear program are what we need.

Sanctions only hurt the NK people, and war helps no one.

We had none of this when Hillary was running the state department...
