Yeah. At this point, I'll worry about Trump's threats as much as I worried about NK's for the last 15 years.

I'd be more worried about him getting into a war with Iran than NK.

Nice knowing you.

On the other hand, North Korea does need to be liberated, for pure humanitarian reasons.

If Trump were to do something, he'd destroy the regime, and then do nothing about the refugee crisis that would come out of it.

Can just imagine his public comments after he goes to visit the nuclear holocaust victims.

"nobody could have seen this coming. This was something nobody has ever seen it was a nuclear bomb. a bomb, that was nuclear, like with fire and smoke. Its just really wonderful to be with the survivors here. In many ways it's a miracle we didn't get even more people killed, but only x of tens of thousands were killed, you know in a real war there were like millions killed. So in many ways this was good."

A great longform article in The Atlantic on the NK situation was posted on GAF not too long ago. It was a great read, you all should check it out.

As long this toddler can wield full might of US military at whim I don't feel that relaxed about language like this. He now can actually do something about / with his nuclear weapon fetish.

I do think that he means economic pressure and isolation, not military action. He knows that any strikes would result in anywhere from 50,000 - 25,000,000 civilian deaths on the Japanese/SK side.

Sure, but I don't feel like worrying about this every time Trump threatens NK for the next 3 years.

I don't think we have the competent leadership in place for such an endeavor to be anything but a disaster.

You're talking about an administration in which a GOP Senator says that three people are keeping us from chaos.

War is good for the military complex right so Trump is probably doing them a favour to get even richer while creating more jobs but lots of dead people.

I wonder what the rest of the world would think if the US attacked NK and Iran.

You think the economic instability that would result from a full blown, possibly nuclear, war in the heart of Asia is something any rich person would want?

True, but same time his language has gotten more direct and pointed about implying war / nuke being only answer to NKorea question.

Doesn't help that this shit is literally baiting NKorea leadership.

More seriously, there's only so far one man can go with the rhetoric before it stops sounding like rhetoric, and instead becomes an actual threat. And an actual threat in this instance is just... oh god.
