Sorry, but I think it matters alot. When the president lays down a marker to another country, that country and the world should take it seriously. What Trump did yesterday was to thoughtlessly shoot off his mouth to look tough for his base while alarming our allies. They are rightly wondering if Trump is going to recklessly strike NK which could drag everyone into a war. Trump now either follows through or backs down in public.


The problem lies, in the fact that Trump has never backed down on anything. and I have the feeling that he won't do it now also. Therefore it will have to be China the one that acts like the adult in the room and actually deals with this issue.

That's a nice red line he drew that everyone knows he won't back up. Do his sycophants even realize that, or are they still busy yakking about how terrible it was for Obama to draw a red line in Syria? Smiley Happy


Frankly, I don't think it matters one bit whether he has drawn a red line or not. at this point you have two very irrational individuals threatening each other. and being pushed into action is becoming quite easy.
I still believe that the only ones that a the most interested party that doesn't want anything like this to occur  is China. and Hoping China realizes the irrationality of both leaders, and decides not to take a chance.

I have  just heard the following. Perhaps Trump in his irrational words were meant a lot more to China that they were meant to NK.
China is the one that in reality has not done what they should have done for years. Unfortunately now, we have an irrational President as dangerous as the one in NK  and now perhpas they will have to underatand that they maybe the only power to actually prevent a nuclear war.
Trump's words are extremely dangerous, and are having a chilling effect everywhere, Let's see if they have the effect on China they need to have.
I have also heard that the Chinese ruler is at this point not too stable. so perhaps we may see a change in policy in that country.

Trump is mentally ill and has an automatic weapon in his hand.

 

Don't you mean an atomic weapon?

OK. Now that THE PORCINE PRESIDENT has thrown down the gauntlet at the foot of a maniac; what is our idiot President to do next?

 

THE PORCINE PRESIDENT, in his rush to sound "Presidential", did not differentiate what type of threats were the subject of his threatening statement. That is an awfully important statement to leave things unclear.

 

Since the only threats the North Korean Maniac has leveled are verbal threats and since his test firings of rockets and other tests were not near any U.S. installations thus posing no physical threats; one must conclude that THE PORCINE PRESIDENT must be talking about additional verbal threats.

 

So this idiot of a President is threatening war based on his receipt of further verbal threats. Every President, until THE PORCINE PRESIDENT, has ignored North Korea's verbal threats.

 

Only THE PORCINE PRESIDENT has chosen to LOWER HIMSELF to the level of the North Korean Maniac.

 

Trump is mentally ill and has an automatic weapon in his hand.

 

God help us.
