No doubt Crooked Trump will use North Korea to get Russia off the front burner.

President Trump addressed the ongoing crisis between the U.S. and North Korea at a briefing on opioids in New Jersey on Tuesday, issuing a stern warning to the regime for its continued provocations.

"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States," warned Mr. Trump from his golf club in Bedminster.

"They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen," he told reporters. "He has been very threatening -- beyond a normal statement," Mr. Trump said of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. "As I said, they will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before."

This rhetoric is starting to sound a bit scary.
It's supposed to sound scary to the fat little N. Korean dictator. But it was Obama, who let this escalate to this point, leaving us with few options when N. Korea began flexing it's muscles by firing ICBM's and threatening us by bragging that they could now hit many U.S. cities.

We may be forced into a preemptive strike, our military leaders have said. Rex Tillerson has warned them that "this isn't the Obama Administration."

More power and destruction than we saw at Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Worse than Dresden & Coventry?
Trump is big on the rhetoric. A history ignorant child with lots of bluster.

I doubt those figures! I think we can handle this little turd. Look at the difference Trump has already made in the fight against ISIS. Consider the source of the story ...CBS.

It was just announced this afternoon that NK has a miniature nuclear warhead that will fit on a missile.

Do we wait until they shoot off that missile or try and stop it before? Hopefully China is doing everything possible they can possibly do.

This guy should just say we are going to war with NK or just sit down and shut up until he figures out a strategy. This is not the kind of situation where saber rattling is at all useful, given the grave consequences of a misstep by either him or the other crazy leader.

What an a***clown and exactly what both BO and HC were talking about in terms of his lack of judgment and presidential temperament to lead in grave situations.

North Korea will not strike first. Their nukes are for deterrence.

Heck, Bush's approval rating was 90% after 911.
With untold thousands dead, Asia in ruins and the world economic order completely destroyed? I don't think so. (not to mention no more Galaxy phones or LG appliances). This is not the same as dropping a few bombs on some defenseless, primitive desert tribesmen.
