Tillerson dials back rhetoric after Trump's North Korea 'fire and fury' threats
"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen," Trump said on Tuesday at his golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey.
A direct rip off from Truman just before we dropped the big one on Japan.
How to propose to deal with it? diplomacy? Yeah that's worked well. Appeasement? Yeah that was really effective. More sanctions? nearly useless.?
The only thing NK respects is strength. Nothing else works is obvious. Preople like Kim will push a person as far as they can. It's like a bully who will push you until you bloody his nose then he won't bother you again. The problem with this bully is that he has missiles and nuclear weapons.
Here is what is going to happen...Absolutely nothing. Several times a year North Korea talk ramps up and the media acts like the end is neigh. No one wants a war with North Korea. No one. Things will stay the same until the DPRK collapses on its own which is more than likely still several decades away.
?The DPRK must choose to stop isolating itself and stand down its pursuit of nuclear weapons,? Mattis said in a statement. ?The DPRK should cease any consideration of actions that would lead to the end of its regime and the destruction of its people.?
problem is, if you threaten "fire and Fury if ...."
first rule of making threats is don't make threats you won't carry out. he was off the cuff with nuclear war which is why he is the biggest blowhard moron alive today and he is j.w.'s biggest blowhard moron. not mine.
Here's the thing, JustWatching, we aren't the president, it doesn't matter what we would do. What he says and does MATTERS and it affects the entire nation as well as the rest of the world.
To tweet about nuclear war like he's playing a part in the movie War Games is NOT ok. He has an entire military and experts in foreign affairs at his disposal and instead, he turns to Twitter to get in a pissing match with an isane dictator! WTF? Who in their right mind would do that? You don't taunt someone who's threatening to kill innocent people. You take it seriously and act accordingly, like a responsible adult would. He is instead, acting like a middle schooler. It's shameful. He's not on a TV show playing the President, he IS the President. FFS he needs to wake the eff up and act like it!
AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 19 min ago - quote - hide comments To those hard core Trump supporters, is there anything Trump can say or do that would cause you to lose respect or faith in him? pedophilia? Anything??
Gimme a break...that's a terrible thing to say. He is the POTUS and I will defend him. If the left would quit worrying about EVERY word or action he says or does you might see some of us ease off. The left comments on every word and everything he does. How come you don't complain about that?
JW, that is what BOTH parties DO. Not just the left. That is why we are so polarized in this country. You must admit Pres Trump acts completely unprofessional, has little to no idea what is appropriate and treats people like crap in general, hiring and firing and making the White House look like a 3 Stooges movie. I hope he does great things and I'm standing by watching. I have no dog in this fight but I want someone to make sound decisions and do this country justice with an approach to governing that improves our lives here and maintains the status the the USA has always held as a world leader.
