Do you want nuclear war with North Korea and China?


It's easy to think we can beat North Korea in a conventional war because of our advanced military. But such a war brings big problems: 1. North Korea has a few small nukes, but China has thousands of them. China has made clear since the 1950s war that it won't tolerate an NK invasion. 2. North Korea may not send missiles to Guam, but it would hit South Korea and Japan. They are U.S. allies and two of the world's largest economies. It would cause worldwide economic devastation. 3. Our military is already stretched thin and our country deeply in debt from 2 Mideast wars.

    I don't understand what your comment has to do with my simple question.

    Do you want nuclear war with North Korea or not? Both Trump and the NK leader are threatening it.

    Rational people will say no to my question, we don't want a nuclear war. But a large part of the U.S. wants military action against North Korea and both leaders have threatened to use nukes.

    I especially agree with your last sentence.

    You were off to a good start with data and then had to make it personal. What a shame.

    Anyway, you are ignoring the past Korean War, the fact China has already amassed troops at the North Korea border and has warned the U.S. War is quite possible.

    You made it clear how bluster and NO FACT NEWS works for both Trump and Kim Jong Un. Now a politician's position on war with North Korea will be the litmus test for the 2018 U.S. elections.Trump found his winning cause. Republicans should be thankful

    Christopher, that's a thoughtful and rational answer. If he is calling the NK leader's bluff, then so be it. I do think he can call the bluff by threatening conventional military responses rather than hinting at nuclear ones.

    Yes, it's rather scary. Threatening each other with nuclear weapons definitely moves the clock.

    Fortunately, both leaders seem to be backing down after the international outcry and pressure from many countries to cool off the rhetoric.

    You don't understand my question. I'm making it quite clear from my comments that war with NK and China will bring horrific consequences.
