So, I honestly have no idea what he means by "they will be met with fire and fury, like the world has never seen".
    He's blustering to sound scary. And apparently it's working because the Left is scared ####less. NOT of the threat from NK, but because Daddy used mean language.

    Relax.

    It all sounds good, except that Daddy keeps his 357 in the drawer next to his bed.
    The kid finds it.

    I'd like to think Trump's rhetoric was directed at NORK and not the left in this country. Obama drew a red line in the sand on Syria and failed to follow through when Syria crossed that red line. Trump stated that "North Korea had better not make anymore threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury..." His statement wasn't "If North Korea decided to use any of their arsenal..." He stated that if North Korea made anymore threats... North Korea has since made several threats, and I see no fire and fury.

    I don't want bluster and scary just to scare the left in this country. I don't want bluster and scary, only to see it not followed through. I don't want any more false lines in the sand. If you're not going to follow through with tour rhetoric, then don't say it. Trump made a really bold statement I believe he never really meant. This is no different than Obama. I thought he was elected to change all of this nonsense.

    NORK and the Left are Allied Enemies.

    Trump's rhetoric is directed at Kim Jong-Un. That the Left is peeing their Underoos and running for their coloring books is just a bonus.

    I have no problem with Trump exchanging bombastic threats with Kimbo. If nobody follows through on their nuclear threats, that's A-OK with me. And if you want to think this makes him "no different" than Obama, rock on with your bad self.

    Then we can't criticize Obama for not following through with his 'line in the sand' bit. What's the point of saying it if you're noting willing to back it up?

    Meh, don't care. What I do care about is our president cutting them a check to reward them for threatening us. If Trump does that, I will happily criticize the hell out of him. But even so, there is still an awful lot to differentiate him from Obama.

    Their nuclear threat is the direct consequence of appeasement starting with the Clintons. They wanted to build nuclear reactors FAR in excess of their electrical need and it was obvious why they wanted it. And the Clintons obliged. Everyone since has tossed them a few bones every time North Korea threw a little tantrum. Now it's a big problem, and no one wants to deal with it.

    What will happen to reluctant China should North Korea have - an *accident*? (Which they probably will). North Korea is freakin' dirt poor. They only serve as a buffer between China and the West, and it's pointless. They need to slap their little friend stupid.

    I think the problem might be that you took the President's extemporaneous remarks as his literal position.

    The President knows that unless Congress declares war or provides him with specific statutory authority, he can only respond to an attack and cannot act simply upon threats. Do you honestly believe that he doesn't know the law?

    The meaning I got from what he said was that if the NORKs act upon their threats (like Syria did when Obama drew the line), not just kept making them, that they would face Hell's fury.
