I know, we don't get much into the Politics/Current events forum here since the late great Grimis was here but.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/09/world/asia/north-korea-missiles-guam.html

"North Korea said Thursday that it was drawing up plans to launch four intermediate-range ballistic missiles into waters near Guam in the Western Pacific to teach President Trump a lesson, after the president warned of “fire and fury” against the North if it persisted in threatening the United States."

Some of you guys are really too young to remember the midst of the cold war - which I was in the middle of during my military service. In fact, when I was stationed in Korea in the 70's, Un's grandaddy, Kim Il Sun was the PRK leader.

In those days, there were no warnings, they just attacked - but small things (While I was there, for example, two of our officers were killed while trimming a tree in the DMZ and a chopper was shot down just on our side of the DMZ).

But Un's really changed the game with ballistic missles and Nukes. China's not doing anything, Japan's not doing anything - isn't it more or less the historic role (at least since WWII) to try and keep the lid on Nuclear crazies?

Does our president have another choice if Un really does launch, even if they aren't nukes (which we won't know) to shoot them down and retaliate in some way?




We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

It will be helpful if our President was not pushing to an unavoidable war just to boost his poll numbers. There are a number of ways to stop of this, but its being undercut due to his demented 3am tweets. A lot of good people are going to die. He is going to get a 10% boost in the polls for a few weeks like he did with Syria and then he will be forced to resign with Penace waiting in the wings.

Someone will have to attempt to shoot down any missile that North Korean launches, because you won't be able to assume anything about the launch.

I wouldn't mind if North Korea were just treated like everyone's drunken uncle and didn't get mentioned by the rest of the family. I think the ruling family there is a little out there, and ignoring them might be the best option.

My just-turned 20 year old son is now half way through Marine boot camp. I'm hoping he doesn't have orders coming soon, although I fully support his decision to enlist.

Rich Little is probably an actual better fit for this particular audience. They didn't seem to enjoy Colbert that much. I figure they should get somebody that will entertain them, even if it doesn't entertain the rest of us.
