    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.

          It is always the chicken hawk that squawks the loudest and puts everyone in greater danger.

            It makes you wonder if he would talk that S88T if Eric, Don Jr, Jared and Ivanka were at the locations.

    "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. In the cases of Saddam and Gaddafi, both were overthrown after they gave up their nuclear weapons programs. Had they never done so, it is unlikely that the U.S. would have attempted to overthrow them in the first place." - http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/f … orth-korea

    “Brinkmanship is highly psychological and the potential for miscalculation is high,”  - Karl Dewey

    Less than 200 days into his presidency, and we're already talking about "fire and fury like the world has never seen."

    Who is surprised? Do you feel safer now?

      Are we going to see more of that "fire and fury" if the Mexican government does not agree to pay for "the wall"?

        Will the "base" finally realize that this man-child is all about himself in his bully pulpit?

          Diane, they will never acknowlege that their man is as mad as a hatter. Trump boasted that he could 'shoot someone' and his support would remain firm. Trump may well be right. The culture warriors that support him would spin for Trump even if he had shot the Pope.

          First time in history we end up with a 'toddler in chief' that is in charge. That is cause for concern.

            What's amazing is to what the euphoria is the faces of those standing behind him as he rants.
