    Trump called for Seoul evacuation at height of North Korea tensions, new book says


    Trump raised a very interesting point as it related to the tense nuclear stand-off between him and his new love interest, Kim-Jong-Un....but it is a very important question, why is Seoul so close to North Korea??

    "In a national security meeting, Trump was also shown a satellite image of the Korean peninsula at night, showing the lights of China and South Korea and the blackness of North Korea in between. Trump initially mistook the void for an ocean. When he was shown the bright lights of Seoul just 30 miles south of the demilitarized zone separating the two Koreas, the president asked: “Why is Seoul so close to the North Korean border??? ---'They have to move,' Trump said, according to sources, who added that his officials were initially unsure if the president was joking. But Trump then repeated the line. 'They have to move!”

    I agree Trump, I agree...…now this may not have actually happened and the sources may be lying, but records from the meeting have been moved to that top secret super secure server along with all of the meetings and calls with Russia as well as all of the meetings and calls with Saudi Arabia...but is Trump dumb enough to not know that Seoul is close to North Korea? Yes....Is Trump idiotic enough to think he can demand a city in another country move their entire population because he said so? Yes....

    I guess I should be stunned and troubled by stuff like that, but I think I'm just numb at this point.

    The Turks had the good sense to place their capital in Ankara instead of Istanbul. Much easier to defend and not a stones throw from their enemies.

    Seoul is 35 miles from the DMZ, well within range of the hundreds of North Korean artillery pieces targeted on them.

    They do need to move.

    Less than a "stones throw" is a much needed military strategy in the highly advanced areas of the gates to Hell and it's hairy inhabitants.

    Nuclear missiles reach Seoul no matter were in South Korea they move it....

    How about we just eliminate the nuclear threat instead, like Trump claimed he would....
