I know. She is a Bulgarian Canadian actress who lives in the States nowadays. What do you mean of some Eastern European heritage? It clearly says everywhere she is Bulgarian.

I just googled it, she spent the "whooping" 2 years in Bulgaria (first 2 years of her life), wouldn't be surprised if Trump had spent more time in Slovenia which is where his wife is from, this doesn't make him Slovenian.

What kind of logic is that? Of course Trump isn't Slovenian. However Nina is clearly of Bulgarian origin. She migrated to Canada when she was two years old and is therefore a Canadian Bulgarian.

If Kim actually launches an attack on Guam in a few days like he says he will, then it's time for Trump to take him out. Simple as that.

This NK nonsense has gone on for long enough (decades).

Then the regime should be decapitated.

I doubt that. While the Kim dynasty is always shouting around, there is no real danger or threat coming from them, while China is a respected enemy. People pretty much know what will be the reaction of North Korea after a certain action. Despite their loud voice, they are weak and poor. Plus, China is starting conflicts with its neighbors again and again, which would make it probably even harder for South Korea. What if they suddenly would claim, this and that island would be theirs, or the mountain with some precious earths has ever been part of China so they just occupy it?

At the same time, without North Korea, there would no justification for the massive US military presence in South Korea anymore. Basically the US uses NK to justify its military (which is actually there to be a PITA for China), China is exploiting natural ressources and the labourforce of NK (including coal and rare metals). Both are more or less happy as it is.

The "buffer" doesn't really help China much anymore. Allowing Kim to mess up will only lead to more U.S military presence in Asia, which isn't great for China.
Well that is not what China feels- they prefer the status quo to ANY option that involves having a US-leaning country (whether it be a unified Korea or some other regime in the north) right at its border. China does not like or trust the US, we have to remember this.

The US needs to fly Dennis Rodman in to Guam and to use him as a human shield.
