This….North Korea nuclear war MAPPED: Terrifying map shows staggering MISSILE RANGE of Kim Jong (dated November 28, 2017):
August 9, 2017 – 8 AM – NYC – This was the first anti-fascist FASCIST speaker of the “No Nuclear War! The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!” protest. He droned on and on – while standing in front of their mock … Continue reading →
Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, said unhinged dictator Kim Jong-un, who has nuclear weapons, is more responsible than President Trump. The Muslim Brotherhood-linked Keith Ellison’s irrational comment is waging an aggressive anti-Trump vendetta. Ellison has been notably anti-Trump because of Trump’s temporary travel ban on selected Muslim countries, viewing Trump’s executive […]

TIM RUSSERT[:..] “One is North Korea. And you say that you, as president, would be willing to launch a pre-emptive strike against North Korea’s nuclear capability.”
DONALD TRUMP: “First, I’d negotiate. I would negotiate like crazy. And I’d make sure that we tried to get the best deal possible. Look, Tim, if a man walks up to you on a street in Washington because this doesn’t happen, of course, in New York. But if a man walks up and puts a gun to your head and says, “Give me your money,” wouldn’t you rather know where he’s coming from before he had the gun in his hand? And these people in three or four years are going to be having nuclear weapons.”
“They’re going to have those weapons pointed all over the world and specifically at the United States. And wouldn’t you be better off solving this really potentially, unbelievable and the biggest problem. I mean, we can talk about the economy, we can talk about Social Security. The biggest problem this world has is nuclear proliferation.”
“And we have a country out there, North Korea, which is sort of wacko, which is not a bunch of dummies. And they are going out and they are developing nuclear weapons. And they’re not doing it because they’re having fun doing it. They’re doing it for a reason. And wouldn’t it be good to sit down and really negotiate something and ideally negotiate. Now, if that negotiation doesn’t work, you’d better solve the problem now than solve it later, Tim. And you know it and every politician knows it, and nobody wants to talk about it. Jimmy Carter, who I really like, he went over there. It was so soft. These people are laughing at us.”
TIM RUSSERT: “The former general of the Air Force, Meryl McPeek, the former secretary of defense, Les Aspin, said you could not launch a pre-emptive strike against North Korea because the nuclear fallout could be devastating to the Asian peninsula.”
DONALD TRUMP: “I’m not talking about us using nuclear weapons. I’m saying that they have areas where they’re developing missiles.”
TIM RUSSERT: “No, but taking out their nuclear potential…”
DONALD TRUMP: “Do you know that this country, Tim…”
TIM RUSSERT: “…would create a fallout.”
DONALD TRUMP: “Tim, do you know that this country went out and gave them nuclear reactors, free fuel for 10 years? We we virtually tried to bribe them into stopping, and they’re continuing to do what they’re doing and they’re laughing at us. They think we’re a bunch of dummies. I’m saying that we have to do something to stop. Ideally…”
TIM RUSSERT: “But if the military told you, ‘Mr. Trump, we can’t do this’…”
DONALD TRUMP: “You give me two names you’re giving me two names. I don’t know. Do you want to do it in five years when they have warheads all over the place, every one of them pointing to New York City, to Washington and everyone of our is that when you want to do it, or do you want to do something now?”
|These are the cities Kim Jong-un CAN destroy with nuclear weapons|
From O’ say can you see, North Korea’s highest, longest ICBM test yet? (dated July 5, 2017):
While Americans shot off Roman candles for July 4th, North Korea launched an ICBM higher and farther than any of its other 10 missile tests this year.
…North Korea is also developing a submarine-launched missile, which would not need the range to cross the Pacific.
Ted Koppel of ABC News interviews Donald Gregg, the former U.S. Ambassador to South Korea from 1989-1993, and columnist Charles Krauthammer. The video is one longer than I like to post, but, in my view, is important to watch:
Excerpt therefrom (emphases mine):
I firmly believe a strike of any kind against North Korea would result in immediate warfare on the peninsula.
I believe they would attack, AT THE LEAST all our bases in Japan, and Guam, and might strike Japanese cities.
I believe the casualties would be in the tens of thousands in the first few days, and might be incalculable if the North reacts with nuclear weapons.
If we do nothing, this math only gets worse.
Since Bill Clinton, at a time the cold war was won and China was in the 3rd world column of nations. this stupidity has grown.
No diplomatic action has influenced the true course of this process.
No sanction has influenced the true course of this process.
Nothing has influenced the true course of this process….

Question: What steps should the United States now take — if any?
I wasn’t going to post today until I stumbled across the following about 22-year-old University of Virginia student Otto Warmbier, brought home in a persistent vegetative state. Home six days after eighteen months of imprisonment in North Korea, Otto Warmbier died on June 19, 2017, at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.
Before he died as a result of injuries suffered at the hands of his North Korean captors, a University of Virginia student, Otto Warmbier, was a target of mockery among left-wing media outlets like Comedy Central, the Huffington Post, and Salon.
“This might be America’s biggest idiot frat boy: Meet the UVa student who thought he could pull a prank in North Korea” ran a headline from Salon.com
The publication even suggested Warmbier deserved his fate:
The Huffington Post editorialized, “North Korea Proves Your White Male Privilege Is Not Universal”:
Many of these outlets derisively noted the fact that Warmbier was a member of a fraternity.
“As shocked as I am by the sentence handed down to Warmbier, I am even more shocked that a grown man, an American citizen, would not only voluntarily enter North Korea but also commit what’s been described a ‘college-style prank.’ That kind of reckless gall is an unfortunate side effect of being socialized first as a white boy, and then as a white man in this country,” La Sha wrote in the Huffington Post. “Every economic, academic, legal and social system in this country has for more than three centuries functioned with the implicit purpose of ensuring that white men are the primary benefactors of all privilege. The kind of arrogance bred by that kind of conditioning is pathogenic, causing its host to develop a subconscious yet no less obnoxious perception that the rules do not apply to him, or at least that their application is negotiable.”
Worse, because Warmbier’s white, Sha suggested his kidnapping may contain some element of justice….

Aside from the above vileness of the Left, I have a few questions.
Why in the world did Otto Warmbier go on a tour of North Korea in the first place? Did he not understand what a brutal regime that of North Korea is?
And I must ask this question, without casting blame on anyone in particular…
Who paid for Otto Warmbier’s tour of North Korea?
What a sad story — on several levels!
This is right about the time the Democrats go back to the Russian fold and side with them against America. It’s been a century-long tradition of theirs to cozy up to them, and after five months of sniveling about Russia … Continued
The British Left’s obsessive hatred of Israel — and complacency toward genuine evil.
Well, it is easy to be on the sidelines and laugh at the pathetic Obama, whose biggest dilemma these days is filling out his NCAA brackets for ESPN. Yet seeing the ridiculous sniveling from Obama’s minions makes this even more … Continued
