    A military strike against North Korea

    There was an interesting revelation in FNC tonight: President Trump is now weighing the views of his advisors, as regarding whether to strike North Korea, militarily. It really is not an easy choice. If any country was ever fully deserving of being on the receiving end of a military strike, it is North Korea. Yet such a strike would almost certainly precipitate a counter strike, by North Korea, against South Korea; and probably against Japan, also. Reportedly, some of the president's advisors favor a military strike against North Korea, whereas others do not. In any case, I would not expect such a strike to come within the next few days. Possibly not even within the next few weeks. And maybe not at all...

    I favor a strike followed by a full-scale invasion.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    What say someone had the testicular fortitude to attack North Korea to prevent their nuclear program from coming online to begin with. So many non Neocons, so little time in which to provide examples...specific examples....where our policies if engaged....are quite correct. And would work.

    Many have been saying...the longer you wait and procrastinate concerning North Korea. Like we did ISIS. Like we're doing with Iran.

    We don't need another war. We've had enough for the time being. Let's rebuild and retool our military first. It's worn down.

    More than likely, it would result in one of the worst catastrophe's in human history, and Trump would become one of the most detested and hated figures in human history as a result.

    Unless you're willing to be part of that invasion force, you probably shouldn't be advocating for that.

    Those "provocations" are just a rational response to decades of US aggression against North Korea. The only reason the country of "North Korea" even exists is because the US government invented it out thin air in the aftermath of WWII. Once again, we see the long-term disastrous results of US interventionism in the 20th century.
