QuoteNorth Korea has been a thorn in the side of the United States since the days of Harry S. Truman. The Korean War came dangerously close to sparking a nuclear confrontation, with the White House preventing U.S. commander Douglas MacArthur from using atomic weapons to stop the Chinese and North Korean armies. Under Pyongyang's current leader Kim Jong-un, it is reaching what may be its most dangerous point since then.Washington's foreign policy establishment has a host of disagreements with Trump. They think he is wrong on immigration, too soft on Russia, too dangerously hawkish on China. On North Korea they are in the same hole as he is with no real ideas about how to get out.This is a crisis everyone has seen coming. That's why Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has been so desperate to court Trump, visiting him even before the inauguration. As North Korea launched an intermediate medium-range ballistic missile on Sunday, Abe was once again with the president – this time on a golf and bonding trip to Mar-a-Lago, Trump's Florida retreat.

Quote from: quiller on February 14, 2017, 12:12:20 AMI agree that dimwit boy's got some serious issues but fail to see ANY sign that China possesses ANY missile capable of shooting down a North Korean missile aimed at Japan. If anything they'd be positioned to defend against North Korean attack against China.
