  1. Donald Trump is a national embarrassment that has no bottom in his ability to act as a despicable, disgusting human being. Functioning under Trump is almost like living under the terror of Pennywise the clown in Derry, Maine. Go see Stephen King’s movie IT – very creepy

  2. The expression of Kim’s face looks like a 5 year old on Christmas morning when he discovered Santa had brought him a new bike. except for the cigarette… pretty scary… seriously!

  3. This will be kind of the ultimate test of the doctrine of mutally assured destruction. Although it is indeed true that we could wipe North Korea off the face of the earth in about 30 days, Noth Korea could destroy most of the economy and population of South Korea with conventional arms in the same period of time, and has had 70 years to plan it, dig its artillery in, and harden it against air attack. It would be the end of them but then again if MAD fails its the end of them anyway.

    A conflict here could easily cost upwards of 20 million souls noth and south in the same 30 days. After that first 30 days the US and South Korea would then have the unenviable task of occupying the north, and rebuilding it. All will millions of refugees cross the border into China destabilizing the entire region.

    I hate to say this but this is the ultimate fait accompli…we can institute all the sanctions we want, but North Korea is now a nuclear power, whether we like it or not.

    I really like the solution suggested by former Navy Seal Jocko Willink:
