Trump tweets "only one thing will work" with North Korea

Written by  CBS News

President Trump took to Twitter Saturday to say that 25 years of talking to North Korea has only makes "fools" of U.S. negotiators, and "only one thing will work," fueling speculation as to whether the president means military action.

Presidents and their administrations have been talking to North Korea for 25 years, agreements made and massive amounts of money paid......

...hasn't worked, agreements violated before the ink was dry, makings fools of U.S. negotiators. Sorry, but only one thing will work!

The president's comments represent yet another escalation in his showdown with North Korea over the country's nuclear and missile programs. In recent weeks, Mr. Trump has threatened "fire and fury" against the North Korean regime and its leader Kim Jong-un, and said the U.S. could "totally destroy" North Korea if necessary.

Mr. Trump's tweets Saturday come after he alluded to a "calm before the storm" in cryptic comments Thursday night. Mr. Trump, after meeting with military leaders at the White House, suggested that the moment perhaps represented a "calm before the storm." Asked to clarify his comments, the president said, "You'll find out.

I will continue to pray very specifically for God's wisdom. direction, discernment, discretion, and protection for this administration and our president.
Praying may be hard work but it does work

The UCMJ requires that the military refuse to carry out an unlawful order. Starting World War Three, in which millions will die, including Americans, can be regarded as unlawful.

The laws also state that to be the US President, a person must be a Natural Born Citizen, but that foreign Muslim was in the White House for 8 years and He's part of the reason we're where we are today with N. Korea, so tell us some more about the USMJ

And we're STILL harping on that bull-s**t about Obama, while President S**t-Bird risks the lives of millions, including AMERICANS.

The UCMJ is the Uniform Code of Military Justice. An order that would result in the death of millions, is clearly unlawful.

Why is anyone surprised? We kill mad dogs, don't we?

A few dozen nukes would eliminate the existential threat the DPRK presents to world peace.

Nukes unnecessary, Kinetic weapons just as effective and no radioactive fallout. Cheaper too.

Fat little Kimmy would be well advised to be riding the next rocket he launches.

Trumps schoolyard game of "I know a secret" doesn't go very far with those of us who served in the past. War isn't some game you play, it's serious business of which he has no understanding.

So if you didn't serve, either in peacetime or wartime, then, as president, you can't make judgements or decisions that involve military action - is that what you're saying? If so, then we have a lot of history to review/rewrite over the past 100 years or so...think Wilson, Roosevelt, Truman (served in National Guard and saw only light action @ end of WWI), Johnson (didn't start a war but massively escalated one), & Clinton (Bosnia & Kosovo). Notice something all of them have in common? They are all democrats - so I guess it's OK when a dem initiates military action without having served, correct?

I was at Lackland AFB during the Cuban missile crisis, just within range of the Russian missiles. If the attack came, we were to fall out on the drill pad. I didn't realize until years later, that we'd die instantly on the drill pad, instead of burning to death in the ruins of those old, wooden barracks.

In late '63, or early '64, I was on the Czech/East German border. Someone intercepted a message that a nuclear attack was imminent. Couldn't do anything but sit, and wait it out. Never going home again. Never seeing my young son, back home. A terrible feeling. In the end, however, it turned out to be from an Army FTX, which should probably have been coordinated with the Air Force, but was not. Still, the telephone line was open to Washington, and red lights were flashing. I suppose it could have escalated beyond the stopping point.

Trump doesn't have much understanding of ANYTHING, except swindling people and skating away from civil lawsuits. Clinton bombed an aspirin factory when things got hot for him, and now it's getting hot for Trump and HE wants to bomb the world. Oh, yes. Makes perfect sense from LeeRoy's point of view.

Trump is a narcissist and believes everyone wants to know what's on his mind so he tells us. Better that than not ever knowing what a president is thinking, right? But, that said, pay attention to what he DOES, not what he SAYS! He relishes attention so says lots of things that get him that attention - which is not a good thing. But, like I said, we should primarily pay attention to what he does. We've had numerous presidents with severe character flaws, many of whom turned out to be above average at the job. Obama, W, Clinton, Nixon, Johnson, Kennedy, Harding, & Wilson (racist & elitist) all had more serious character flaws but the country survived all of them. Of the character flaws available to humans narcissism isn't the worst by far. Annoying and bad for image certainly, but not as bad as many in the past century.
