Re: Trump

There has been back channel diplomacy for months. Fact.

All the analysts agree N. Korea has no interest in diplomacy at this time.

Do you want a paranoid like Kim to pursue nuclear weapons and nuclear blackmail?

Trump is using the last card in his deck. China clearly has a very limited interest in this. It's a pity the Obstructionists have prevented Trump from striking up better relations with Russia. Ah, but that's spilled milk now.

Rightly or wrongly, I still believe it's a bluff for both parties. But if Guam is targeted, all bets are off...

You must be referring to the Russians.

No more than I want a paranoid lunatic like Trump having access to the doomsday device while playing out infantile chess moves.

Obstructionists? Funny how that term has been borrowed from the Obama days, when Republicans treasonously rejected any legislation regardless of merit. How can a party truly obstruct when it has neither the presidency nor either house of government? If there is an obstructionist, it is Trump as he is sabotaging the party he is allegedly representing.

Re: Trump

No, I'm not referring to the Russians. I'm referring to diplomacy with the N. Koreans.

It's predictable, I suppose, that many are willing to blame Trump for this lamentable state of affairs. Not past administrations which let the N. Korea problem slide, not Kim, a certified sadist and nutcake, but, yes, Trump. It figures...

Why do people stubbornly believe you have to like Trump to support him? I'll never understand that.

Sorry, I mistook "back channel diplomacy for months" as a reference to his campaign election coordination with Russia. As you said, no reason to cry over spilled milk.

He owns this lamentable state of affairs now. He promised you he would fix everything, yet he has poisoned the Kool-Aid well. Still thirsty?

I don't like him, trust him or respect him. I support my country, that is why I believe he should be removed from power.

Re: Trump

To be perfectly clear, I am attacking Trump, not you personally Druidic. I respect you for speaking your mind even when being confronted by a vocal majority here. I don't quite understand how you can still support Trump through everything, but I respect your right to do so.

Brendan--a bluff works fine in high stakes poker. At least some of the time LOL.

Re: Trump

Two lunatics with no impulse control trading blows isn't a game I can see ending better than Obama's more measured approach, and it's especially infuriating because the likely nuclear targets of the DPRK aren't even places dumb enough to have elected Trump. This whole mess is a skein of irresponsibility piled onto more irresponsibility – from the voters to congress to the presidency.

Re: Trump

The stench of the concentration camp hovers over Trump. He and his freak show are taking the United States of America into the abyss.
