In the late 50s some people could afford shelters. The rest of us had daily drills on how to get under our desks.
He crossed the red line that he created. North Korea called his bluff and has threatened to shoot missiles at Guam.
Now he either needs to stand down and lose even more credibility with the world or take some kind of drastic action against North Korea. He has boxed himself into a corner.
I have a serious problem with a draft dodging POS running our military.

"Instead of threats & over-the-top rhetoric, we need to pursue a smart, long-term strategy to address these growing threats,” - Ruben Gallego
"some speculate for the North Korean leadership, the fates of Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi are sufficient reasons for them to refuse to give up their nuclear arsenals.
