    Trump's comments weren't limited to responding to an actual missile attack, Trump said if NK made anymore threats.

    You do understand the term and meaning of "posturing" don't you?

    I would think that after 8 years of it NEVER happening that you would think it is good to have a leader that is willing to defend our assets both verbally and actually. Geesh!

    That's a real question. Or is it that your mindless hatred of Donald Trump is so all-consuming that you can't think straight or see anything else?

    Which is it: do you hate America and love war; or are you a mindless hate-filled bot? Because it's one or the other.
    You are vying with derps for the stupidity awards aren't ya?

    What I want is for trump to not make meaningless threats.

    I knew when Trump said that "fire and fury" nonsense it was just a bunch of sabre rattling nonsense. It was a stupid thing to say.

    So you want him to follow through with them? You want him to say nothing?

    Which one do you prefer?

    So firing a missile over a country we have agreed to protect is what happened. That sounds like a threat to me
    Some things have happened since then, believe it or not. They are authorized self-defense forces, both for external and internal threats. Their constitution does not allow for war, but they have had self defense forces since the early 1950's. We gave them planes and help to set it up.

    Threats against the United States. While we have bases in Japan, that's not a threat directly against the United States.

    I do not equate this to the Syrian red line, but it probably wasn't well advised. The good thing is that "fire and fury" can mean damned near anything, the bad thing is everyone knows what it is supposed to mean. If anything that can be perceived as a threat is given, we will look as stupid as we did when we didn't respond previously, and we have a hell of a lot of Dixie Chicks ready to sing to anyone who will listen how stupid we look.

    So was the most recent statement by the crazy fat kid a threat? One could say so...but a lot more vague of a threat than the previous one where he practically named the very day he was going to lob the missiles at Guam.

    We'll see. You want to see WWIII in the worst way. Me...I'm OK with more waiting and seeing.

    I, too, am okay with wait and see. I suspect all these little hawks are screaming for Trump to drop a nuke so they can then bitch and cry about how many people he killed and that he's "literally Hitler".

    On another note, that would be a great name for a band: Literally Hitler.
