    Trump didn't make the threat he just has to deal with it.

    Not I. That was the WORST thing that Bill Clinton did in office. Not the blow job. THIS. And he even says so himself these days.

    As you apparently don't realize, leaders have also responded to a foreign crisis when there was a domestic crisis.

    You should Google FDR.

    So lets get this straight.

    NK starves and tortures their people, threatens the US and Trump takes a tough stand against them but somehow Trump is the lunatic?

    I guess you prefer the Obama approach where he ignores it and goes golfing.

    The U.S. Treasury Department late last month targeted Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro with sanctions, accusing him of widespread abuses of the Venezuelan people.

    Trump says he?s not ruling out military option against Venezuela - POLITICO

    WTH???

    he's literally inventing crises.
    I can't believe this, wasn't he the one that said he wasn't running for President of the world and wouldn't get involved in affairs that didn't involve the US?

    Trump and his administration just need something to talk about because they do not really know their jobs or what they should be doing.

    It is NUANCED, that's what it is. THIS is why the job of being President requires extraordinary judgment, a thing that Donald Trump is severely lacking in. We need to apply some common sense cost/benefit analysis in deciding when and where to intervene in the world.

    China is bullying Tibet? Committing cultural genocide? Well, that's bad. VERY bad. And I wish we could stop them from doing that. But it is NOT worth triggering World War III over.

    We could have stopped the Rwandan genocide of 1994 by sending in ONE battalion of well-armed Marines, but we didn't do so? We blew that one.

    For CRYING OUT LOUD, apply some of your vaunted game theoretic reasoning to questions like this! THINK!!!!
    Thanks from Ian Jeffrey
