    Yeah, I can't argue, but any port in a storm....

    If the fat kid really does have nukes, the most accurate assumption is probably that he just wants to use them as leverage for goodies and to protect his chubby ass. Regardless, South Korea and Japan would have to be all-in if any significant action is taken.

    The question is whether Trump sees that. Yikes.

    False. They are, indeed , a threat to the people of Seoul.

    Wow, what a disingenuous statement. I can tell you don't even own any arms. First of all, bullets are bullets. They don't keep old bullets around and a given caliber of bullet kills the same no matter when made. Second, they use the AK-47, the most reliable assault rifle EVER made. And most of their bigger weapons are supplied to them by CHINA. And now they have a sub that can disappear and be very difficult to locate. It could be right off our shore right now. And the weapons that worry us most are NOT from the 1950s!

    My God, you really are a knucklehead. The problem with arguing with liberals is always that most of them have their head so far up their ass, that even when they are a mile off, they still think they are dead-on balls right.

    How does this thread look after the idiot's tweets on the subject this morning.

    Are our Trombies going to give the fool credit for his superior negotiating skills?

    Not really. They could have taken Seoul off the map any time in the last 40 years... They haven't because the consequences would be devastating.

    Of course Agent Orange had to go and fudge it up. He can't function in life unless he's involved on some drama or conflict.

    True, but if, at any point, they feel they are going to face those consequences anyway (such as , if a moron gets elected leader of the free world and starts making bombastic threats) , then they could pull the trigger.

    And you're "not really" is the result of us maintaining a strong South Korean military and our own strong presence in the region. We would not have to do this, if they were not a threat. Your logic is convoluted to the point of absurdity.

    "They are not a threat, because we have them boxed in, precisely because they are a threat."

    Yes, that a person could be in the Army for 11 years, and still not think that N Korea is a quickly growing threat to Japan, S. Korea, Guam, Hawaii, Continental USA and anyone else who engages them if left unchecked!

    OH! OH! But wait! No, JOEB knows more than the combined military forces of the USA, Japan and S. Korea, who all take him as a very serious threat!!! Joe! Why are you wasting your very valuable strategic knowledge here when you ought to consultant to the Pacific Fleet?!!!

    It is not realistic. Good call!
