Your allegiance is duly noted. Hang in there----we'll see who backs down.

Oh great. Two tubby, insecure guys with enormous egos talking all macho into the cameras. Donny vs Kim. This oughta be fun.

Let's hope these two idiots don't escalate an already delicate situation and force tens of thousands of troops to put their lives in danger because each of them has to have the last word.

So what do we do next? More 'engagement' which gives NK even more time to develop its offensive capability?
I hope Trump remembers and is taking a refresher course in the Cuban Missile Crisis, which occurred in October, 1962, when he was in high school ( as I also was) and was quite old enough to comprehend the danger then threatening the United States.

Fortunately, the U.S.S.R. backed down.

But North Korea is no U.S.S.R.....

Reason being, when you make an ultimatum and fail to carry through with it, the individual knows they have the power over you and will continue to manipulate you. Fairly applicable to most life situations.

Kim may be nuts, but I don't think he's idiotic enough to start anything with the USA, it would be over before it began. It seems like nothing but a bunch of sabre rattling.

True. I don't trust Trump to not strike first though. I think a nuclear standoff with North Korea is inevitable at this point, unless we can impeach Trump now. That isn't happening so nuclear war here we come. My hope is that it doesn't escalate beyond NK to become a full-scale nuclear holocaust.

President Trump's approval rating will be about 95% after he defeats Kim.
Heck, Bush's approval rating was 90% after 911.

Default War, Trump Threatens "Fire and Fury" Against North Korea

“North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States,” Mr. Trump told reporters at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J. “They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. He has been very threatening beyond a normal state and as I said they will be met with fire and fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before.”

More power and destruction than we saw at Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Worse than Dresden & Coventry?
Trump is big on the rhetoric.
