The North Korea Red-line

In a wonderful blunder Trump has effectively drawn a red line with North Korea. One I'm sure they'll be all too happy to cross. I wonder how many people who railed against Obama's Syria red line will let him slide on this.

Certainly glad I don't live in Seoul.

They don't get it. The world is a game of Risk where if you roll 6s you can't get hurt.

In a 1999 interview with Tim Russert (in the good old days when the MSM still had some real journalists), Trump said that he would first negotiate with North Korea, but was open to a preemptive nuclear strike.

No you obviously don't get it with that caviler attitude. The world has NEVER had two parties lobbing Nukes before. Tens of millions of lives at risk including MANY of our serviceman and you state "War is messy" and go back to trading the S&P..

Yeah, we're just so clueless and dumb. We want to follow what has worked so well these past, I don't know, 20-30 years?

You know, the stuff that has gotten us to this point with NK. Let's continue using that strategy. Sanctions...coddling...maybe some bilateral talks...you know...all that good stuff that always works out.

Go back to coddling and sanctions that have gotten us to the point of the nuclear threat in the first place. It's worked so well so far.

It's not a cavalier attitude. It's an attitude that won't stand for business as usual, which got us into this mess in the first place.

Ineffective Clinton. Ineffective Bush. Ineffective Obama.

So here we are.

Doing more of the same would = insanity.

There will be no nuclear war or nukes launched on either side. We have the capability to prevent that from ever happening, while at the same time thoroughly neutering NK.

So take your bullshit talking points and your "go back to trading" comments to where they might actually play well.
