Just remember what happened the last time. All those episodes of MASH weren't for nothing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yep. North invaded South. No amount of US troops, napalm, can beat hidden guerilla's. Different ball game now. Nuked and gone. Their nuclear sites at least. However, China is the new player. I believe China is very happy with the way it is today. US at arms length in the region, as that's China's region. It all comes down to KJU's trigger finger, and much more so, causing deaths by way of a test accident. China being there does mean a stalemate which is a good thing, but it also keeps the issue alive.

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Nuclear strike on North Korea, which I believe will not happen, will affect and cause fatalities far wider than the Korean peninsular. Main Land China, Japan and Russia.

 

 

 

 

 

 

For sure. The US wont pull the first trigger. That just leaves NK

 


The wider problem is that tensions are very high. In this kind of situation anything could happen leading to loss of lives. The US is clearly pursuing a risky strategy for the region, with very little risk to the USA.

 

Tensions IMHO are not as high as the media exploits. Its close to same ol. The US isn't pursuing anything. NK is. US responds.

 

Bottom line is China wants Asia to itself, NK is a convenient rabbit. In the real world, Europe lives its life.

 

IMO there is no risk to the USA, none to NK, none to China, there is for Japan.

PRNK wont attack China, that's their only friend. And they wont attack the US as you say. So what your saying is let them do whatever test they like as we all know they wont do anything? Thats what the world is allowing. China is allowing.

 

A) Why would a rogue country be allowed to do what it likes?

 

B) Whats wrong once the test missile leaves PRNK waters that it gets shot down?

 

C) And what happens if and when a test fails and inadvertently lands in Japan and kills citizens?

 

 

That's not what I'm saying.

 

But why can other countries develop and test missiles, but it's not OK for North Korea? Because we don't agree with their politics?

 

What if North Korea shot down a US missile test over international waters?

 

 

I assume other countries are are in agreeance with the UN. Unsure about India/Pakistan though. NK is a rogue state. I assume if the US ran tests thats in accordance with UN.

 

My issue is that China is just sitting and watching, they are probably happy with these tests as they prefer PRNK to be anti US than for anything to soften.

 

 

Of course China is happy. Unlike many Western countries, China wants to dominate the world. It seems that way anyway. They buy property all over the world. And wants to be best in sport. Might as well get rid of the USA in the mean time. Well, not completely rid, they still need USA to buy their stuff and repay the trillions owed in debt ...

 

 

China is VERY western. 153 KFC's in Beijing or was that Macca's?  Yes, debt, less then Japan, similar to the US, but its new country, not old like the US. 

 

US sees itself as the monitor of the world and peace. 

 

 

China's working class may eat KFC and watch NBA but they are not Western. I'm quite sure they are quite happy to kill off the US and buy their country one acre at a time.

You've obviously missed the many statements over the last week from the US military and US diplomats. It's not a good situation.

We have all heard that for years and years and years. You reap what you sow, thats what letting them get away with everything does. And as everyone seems to agree, no one is going to pull the trigger. China is happy, NK is happy, US is miffed, nothing has changed

Maybe new applicants ask to be adopted by the Trump family, aka US Employment Assurance

Technically, he hadn't actually started the job yet. Divorced, missed the birth of his son, and then fired before he started, all in one week. Trump really does run a classy show.

Part of DJT's reasoning is that Scaramucci made comments that were inappropriate for a person in his position. That one had me laughing hard!

Wow went away for a few days and I've missed so much! What do you mean Trump fired someone? Nothing personal, it's just business right? I wonder if the British betting agencies have tabs on who he's going to fire next ...

The White House IT Support will probably adopt a policy of just issuing temporary access and passwords and non personalised access cards.

Not that surprising. The new Chief of Staff is a retired Marine General, he was not going to put up with the kind of antics the Mooch has been displaying this past week.

 

Scaramucci made it clear he answered directly to the president and not to Prebius, but I'd imagine John Kelly would have insisted it be a condition of accepting the job that there would be a more traditional chain of command with him as Chief of Staff.
