    I presume that would not be olive branches.

    Rather boring sabre rattling if you ask me.
    actually, I agree. the U.S. has few, if any, real options. a conventional war is out of the question, as it would accomplish nothing except killing a lot of people. a nuclear attack is a foolish move and could accomplish a response from other powers (it would eliminate NK, but that's about all except for collateral damage). of course, there could be a blockade - but 80% of the trade from China would still be there, so not an effective idea.

    I do not want a war, especially not a war that we fight with rules that drag the war out for a decade or more. However, right now we have the leader of a third world country that could strike our country with a nuclear weapon. If that doesn't put pause in your thought pattern, nothing will. Put aside your hatred of President Trump for a minute. What would you like him to do? Sanctions are not stopping this threat. Do we hold Pyongyang at arm's length and only fire if fired upon? Is this a case where we can wait until someone else makes the first strike? What do you tell the families of those dead if we do nothing and he launches a nuclear weapon, no matter how crude?
    Those two idiots, Lord Lard-Ass & LiL' Kim, need to stop waving their little dicks at each other.

    What the fuck are you going on about? The N.K. leader says he has a missile that COULD hit the U.S.
    SO fucking what? Has our, or any other western intelligence service, confirmed that?
    The asshole so far has not been able to fly a missile much past the middle of the fucking Sea of Japan.

    What are you getting so hysterical over?

    Oh for God's sake. Grow a pair of pelotas and stop getting so hysterical.
    NOW you're relying "yeah, but what if......"

    US is the one with most weapons in the world, and bigger military budget than the next ten countries combined. US is the one invading countries and waging war all over the world. But you are worried about others committing aggression against you? lol

    You cannot scare NK .... However, making fun of them, could provoke them ..

    Righties live for fear, so telling them to chill is pointless. Their entire existence is based on fear and hatred. It's why they are so easily propagandized
