    I doubt they will do it all, thankfully. Mattis has basically intimated that it should be avoided and I tend to think Trump listens to Mattis.

    Many have been saying...the longer you wait and procrastinate concerning North Korea. Like we did ISIS. Like we're doing with Iran.
    Neocons are the ones who unleashed ISIS on the world in the first place. Neocons are the biggest foreign policy failures in history. Everything they touch descends into chaos. One could argue they are causing this chaos intentionally. The last thing we need are neocons directing foreign policy. They have proven they are extremely dangerous to stability and freedom.

    I agree about not needing another war, but do you really think we need to "rebuild" our military? We spend significantly more on the military than any other country on earth. We spend more on our military than China and Russia combined. Does anyone actually believe our military isn't strong enough to defend America?

    Do you really believe wars are optional?

    Should we inform North Korea we intend to attack them in a decade to end today's threat?
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    I will do what is right. I served for 20 years in our land forces. Your attitude on who may voice an opinion, in this case, is simply goofy. It is also unamerican.

    Your opinion is interesting. Wrong. But interesting.

    When you fought it was with weapons as good or better than what your enemy was using. Do you want the next generation to fight wars with weapon systems inferior to others?

    Modernization must occur continuously.

    You know so little. North Korea was a Russian invention. It was the same as East Germany. The US had nothing to do with it.

    Obama unleashed ISIS and he's a liberal.
