Preventing a war with North Korea is mostly about not invading North Korea.

I hope we can manage that.

Oh, I remember. That doesn't change what I hope for, it just makes it somewhat precarious.

"Rodman remains the American with the best first-hand insight into the current North Korean leadership and its thinking," Berger said. "That is a problem."

Trust me, if Trump goes through with ending trade with China it won't even be the real first day of fall before his 3AM Pizza Rolls are more strychnine than sodium, with a nice note reading "From your friends in Bentonville, Arkansas!"

If it was another republican, I'd expect to find oil there very soon, or perhaps go as far as blaming them for some terror attack........however with Donnie 2 Scoops, I'm more worried he'd invade because of one thing

I want to believe that Trump is playing it up as 'the wild card' to press China to crack down on their crazy little cousin. I also want to believe that women find me funny, brilliant and are attracted to me.

I don't get what Kim Jong Un is doing. Nobody in their right mind wants to attack or invade NK but he's pushing hard enough on getting nukes and an ICBM to make it so we might have to act to stop him as letting him have a nuke he can deliver by an ICBM is a really bad thing.

Trump:  Also ISIS is now a thing of the past.  They were old and stupid and had to go.  But instead I will be introducing Trump Terror.  A better class of terrorism.  It's more upscale.  We think it will be beautiful.

Kim does not want to die. He wants to keep the status quo. He needs the US to leave him alone, do away with sanctions and make sure his populace keeps believing he is the best leader for them. He will not nuke us or anyone else unless we somehow make that the  "best" available option in his mind.

North Korea doesn't have jack shiat. The only way the ruling family can keep the rubes in line is to keep them scared and tell them that their absolute blind devotion is the only thing keeping their glorious nation from being destroyed by the hated enemy.

That loser 0bama's ISIS was so weak, sad, low-energy. We are going to hire only the best terrorist, the best people. It will be amazing and classy. Many people have told me it will be the best terrorist organization that any of them have ever seen. It will be huge, the polls will show we'll make terrorism great again.

Force the US and allies to the negotiating table to get some of the sanctions lifted.

I think a fun strategy would be for a high official (not the orange dunce) to go on national TV and say:

"Congratulations, North Korea. Well done. You've created something that we figured out half a century ago. Did you know that one of those tests could feet everyone in North Korea for a year?"

Then you show all the food that the Kims could have bought for their people with the money they used on the tests and the nuclear program. Like, you literally show piping hot turkeys, fish, cooked rice, etc.

Don't get belligerent. Just keep repeating over and over again how all the money they've used to keep the Kims fat, in power, and making bombs could have been used on this delicious, delicious food.

Then smuggle the newscast into North Korea, as propaganda has been smuggled in before.

I think a viral campaign strategy to incite a coup is a long shot but probably the best option we have at this point aside from millions dying.

Maybe the other nuclear powers will say "F*ck It" and decide that BSAB, and point and ready nukes at both Best US and Best Korea.

Not that anything could go wrong at that point -- all that testosterone and adrenalin replacing the state department -- what if no one really wanted to step in and referee.

Not everyone is as sick and codependant as either Trump's or Kim's staffers.

Huh, I'm 44 and that was pretty much our guiding star growing up.   Do as you please, the missiles could be in flight right now for all you know.    To me and my friends in the 80's, war and the Road Warrior aftermath, was as imminent as it was inevitable.

Do you suppose that when you become President you have to change the address on your driver's license, and then change it back when you're out of office, like every other common plebe?

I missed getting to the path of totality a couple weeks ago, darn it. I thought, "It'll be a lot closer to me, and last almost twice as long, in 2024. It's less than seven years. We can hold out until then." Apparently not.

At least they waited until lots of other Americans got to see the 2017 one.

Really glad I decided long ago to never have children.

You know what?  Maybe we need to have it out.  I'm getting tired of this egotistical saber rattling shiat. You think humans are better than that?  Hell no.  Vile, human nature always wins out in the end.  Vile, human nature isn't love and kindness...it is fark you, competition for resources, competition for superiority, competition for mating rites, competition for every farking thing on this farking little blue rock spinning through space.

Human nature is "My God is better than yours."  Human nature is "I want to bash your skull in for flirting with my girlfriend."  Human nature is "You look different than me, so we will fight to prove superiority".  Human nature is "I will farking crush you."

That's what it is.  And we're all about to have front row seats to the best, most luxurious, fantastic nuclear war that ever nucleared!  Why?  Because, we are animals.

Donald Trump is President and the only person who can avert a nuclear war is Dennis Rodman.

That's literally coma-level retarded.  You would have ended up in psychiatric treatment had you insisted it was going to happen 3 years ago.

Replying to my earlier post about being 53 and missing the cold war...

Thinking back, it seemed Reagan was full of bluster but in the end was smart enough not to go nuclear.

Maybe my memory is fading.
