    The MOUTH--"There's a chance we could have a major major conflict with N. Korea"

    Great! So he's blowing smoke up our asses to scare the 26 yr. old Korean TWIT OR there is something going on? Just great!

    Exclusive: Trump says 'major, major' conflict with North Korea possible, but seeks diplomacy

    U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday a major conflict with North Korea is possible in the standoff over its nuclear and missile programs, but he would prefer a diplomatic outcome to the dispute.

    "There is a chance that we could end up having a major, major conflict with North Korea. Absolutely," Trump told Reuters in an Oval Office interview ahead of his 100th day in office on Saturday.

    Nonetheless, Trump said he wanted to peacefully resolve a crisis that has bedeviled multiple U.S. presidents, a path that he and his administration are emphasizing by preparing a variety of new economic sanctions while not taking the military option off the table.

    "We'd love to solve things diplomatically but it's very difficult," he said.

    Trump lavished praise on Chinese President Xi Jinping for Chinese assistance in trying to rein in North Korea. The two leaders met in Florida earlier this month.

    "I believe he is trying very hard. He certainly doesn’t want to see turmoil and death. He doesn’t want to see it. He is a good man. He is a very good man and I got to know him very well.

    It has ALWAYS been possible for 'major major' conflict with North Korea.

    Good that we are seeking diplomacy.

    YEP! But we have a fool in the WH with the language skills of a 10th grader. I watched top security and MILITARY types who said they are "worried"--that's an understatement, which is how men of their ilk communicate--about an ACCIDENTAL war.

    I usually don't like the wars the US has been creating... However, with NK, because they have been threatening to nuke the us, has been actively pursuing nuclear technologies, has been launching bombs towards Japan, is still in a state of war with SK, who is also an ally and under regular threats.

    To give an analogy, a neighbor a few doors down walks up and says he'll burn down your house... That's not a credible threat. However, if you start seeing him piling up cans of gas next to his house and continues the threats, the threat is suddenly credible and you are justified in taking action.

    That has NOT been the case with pretty much any war since ww2 as far as the US goes at least.

    All of the above is all true. But why now is this little provocateur ratcheting up HIS saber rattling? Yes, he lobbed a few into the air during Obama but this is in Trump's face. We counter provoke him or overreact and S KOREANS DIE! While Japan is sitting on pins and needles.

    Just like BUSH racheting up the heat with bogus Saddam aggression and non existent chemicals and we BLEW UP THE MIDDLE EAST. Wanna do it again? How many fucking times are we going to get it WRONG?

    PS Isn't JAPAN conducting air raid drills right now? (Real ones)

    Thats the other factor, Kim Jong dynasty is crazy'z'fack, so, I think it may be a matter of when and not if...

    As for the why now... Id have to argue the escalation by nk. I don't want this to occur, because if it's not surgical to behead the government and eliminate the capacity to retaliate, then there will be massive potential consequences. I'm just saying that in this case, more than any other conflict or potential conflict, would be a just case.

    Yes, so it's not necessary to state the obvious and deeply alarm our South Korean allies --- who will be the first to die if the North ever decides that they can't trust Trump to not launch an unprovoked pre-emptive strike, and that they are in a "use it or lose it" situation with their WMDs.

    Fight for peace, prepare for war --- quietly. Nobody gains anything from public war warnings.

    WE were all told Trump would be tested early. And what we get is a 70 year old impetuous man child playing 'I'll show you mine if you dare show me yours' with an equally though much younger impetuous man child.'

    NOT GOOD!

    Not to mention we have a wholly understaffed STATE Dept with, as I understand it, many sub positions with empty chairs and a Sec. of State that is STILL quite inexperienced.

    I repeat, NOT GOOD!

    This is all disturbing because Trump is as ego-driven and immature as the North Korean leader.

    Let's hope China's Xi Jinping, Trump's new BFF, can help America control our boy.
