Color me shocked.
It only sells in the USA and to a limited audience.

Trumplings...

Tillerman has a more moderate temperament than Trump, but the situation with Un is so fraught that I don't think Tillerman is up to this. Putin wants to leave the United States swinging in the breeze, so he's not going to offer up anything constructive. The South Korean president was elected partly on anti-US sentiment, so his assistance will be marginalized. Japan is willing to assist, but their ability to assist is limited. China isn't happy with Un, they certainly weren't happy about the hydrogen bomb, but they are hamstrung diplomatically, because they want to keep North Korea under control (the last thing they want is a war on the Korean peninsula), but they also want to keep American influence in Asia limited (and letting Un rattle his sabers actually suits their diplomatic goals at times). It's very complicated, obviously.

My point was that when two immature men in control of great power go at each other, there is no likely good strategy.

I listened to this stuff back in the early 1970's and here we are again. How many times can you listen to "A Hard Day's Night" by the Beatles before saying you've had enough.

Had a conversation about this recently with someone who was worried about getting nuked by Lil' Kim. I told him to read my lips and said he would die of old age and not by getting nuked. I also told him one day he'd be sitting in a rocking chair crapping his pants remembering our conversation and that I was correct.

Lil' Kim is an attention-seeking inferior short guy. He's no different than, say, a Kim Kardashian posting another Instagram booty-pic because she hasn't had her attention needed to survive another day.

The same can be said about Trump

The same was said about Saddam. Worked out well, eh?

It's suicide to go this alone. Trump should not take any military action without the participation of the UN's forces. South Korea and Japan should stay out of it. That way all countries outside of NK's missile range except the USA share in any wrath coming from China and Russia.

North Korea just shot a missile over Japan.

So, you know. They're definitely backing down in the face of Agent Orange.

Ok, so you're calling Trump immature (that's a 2fer). Insulting the man people who was elected president and insulting people who voted for him. Yea, that tactic worked before lol <sarcasm>

As for strategy, everyone knows that no matter what Trump does the left will have spasm lol.
