Sounds like we just edged a bit closer to war. Does Trump bluff? Guess we will find out.

Youtube of Trump's statement:


"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States," Trump told reporters, speaking slowly and deliberately with his arms crossed in front of him. "They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. He has been very threatening ... and as I said they will be met with fire, fury and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before."

Another ginned up war in the making. Trump . . . and the Repubs, and the Dems, and the arms dealers, and the media . . . all benefit from ginned up war.

Team America!

Exceptionalistan logic is thick and rich with BS. Why is it only the USA that is threatened by NK? I know Americans think that they are the only humans in the universe worthy of note, but it looks like full bore paranoia on the part of the USA. China and Russia are much easier targets for the NK nutjob. But somehow it is America, on the other side of the planet (literally) that is "most threatened". Americans consume too much fake news and can't tell what is real anymore. It's America's demented, phobia driven policy in regards to NK that is driving NK to develop ICBMs and nuclear warheads. America can't use the response to its naked aggression as a pretext for the naked aggression.
