Why Can't They Stop NK Madman?

Some folks just cannot resist the urge to debate current issues of the day...here's the place to satisfy your craving. BE FOREWARNED - if you are an intellectual lightweight, you might find it a bit rough in here. This place is kinda like a never-ending edition of the McLaughlin Group. (Whatever happened to Mort Zuckerman, anyway?)

The real issue here is that once the Norks are good to go with reliable nukes, they will be for sale to Iran.

Didn't anybody notice how rapidly their nuke tech advanced since their WMD partner (Iran) was given a shitload of cash?

Hell, I bet the Iranians have preordered a few already.
I think the North has been advancing along and waiting for a weak moment in American leadership to strike... no way he tries this under any other president...

Starting with GHWB who took 100 missles out of South Korea, to WJC, GWB and BHO, the can kept getting kicked down the road.

The problem ramped up during the last four years or so. Now it lands squarely at the feet of this administration.

I remember the media and left wing pundits and politicians all claiming that a certain other president was going to start a nuclear war when he talked and acted tough with the Soviets. That worked out rather well.

Me, I am VERY happy that "Mad Dog" is where he is. I sleep better at night with him closely involved.

Yes but all of that other stuff is less relevant because Kim Jong Il wasn't as off the wall as Mr. Un is...

The soviets were easily reasoned with and the tough talk wasn't taunting and spur of the moment... Trump is just winging it with no outside advice in the taunting match... Reagan would have never done that... threatening North Korea won't work... in fact it'll likely backfire...

No matter how calmly or politely we discuss it here, it doesn't change the fact that we have two raving lunatics itching for a nuclear war.

Maybe T Rump could fly to NK, walk up to the inbred fatty and grab him right by the pussy?

Lil Kim wants big bombs... awesome, he got em... now he's in the big boy club. The rest is just fear mongering at it's finest.

In case I'm wrong you might want to stock up on Samsung, Kia and Hyundai products while the getting is good.
It's interesting how South Korea is a major manufacturing hub and North Korea is a poor, worthless country.
Ask not what your country can do FOR you; ask what they are about to do TO YOU!!

Either way the contrast couldn't be greater. I can't be genetic intelligence or geography.

The South Korean's have shown that freedom wins.

Genetic intelligence doesn't exist... this isn't 1890 and those ideas and belief systems died long ago...

The North Koreans are hated by the entire world and completely isolated from almost everybody so it's no wonder they are pathetic and desperate... working with people and getting things done always wins... isolation never does... the current occupant of the White House could learn something here...

Now Trump is threatening to go to war with Venezuela. What has Venezuela ever done to the U.S.?

He didn't say that. It was pretty generic.

When he speaks in generalities, that's when we need to worry. When he talks in specifics, it's always a lie.
"Obama was born in Kenya."
"Ted Cruz father was in on the Kennedy assassination."
"Thousands of Muslims were celebrating in the streets on 9/11."
"Obama was the founder of ISIS."
“Between 3 million and 5 million illegal votes caused me to lose the popular vote.”
“The failing @nytimes was forced to apologize to its subscribers for the poor reporting it did on my election win. Now they are worse!”
“Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!”

No it was pretty specifically stated as an option... you say that openly and it's a threat against the other guy...

"We have many options for Venezuela, including a possible military option, if necessary."

No squadrons of F22 or B2 heading across the Pacific.

When that happens, it's time to worry.
