No, he'll brag about it on twitter with all the grace of a spoiled nine year old.

Are these people seriously stupid?  You always telegraph your actions in international affairs, unless you are actively trying to escalate things.  You want consequences to always be clear and known, so that all parties understand the situation and can find some sort of resolution.  "Let's fark shiat up, yo!" does not ever end well.  Hell, even Hitler was always very clear about his plans.  They were evil, but no one had a doubt about what they were.

The twit will tweet, but that may have no relation to what actually happens.

Methinks none of them ever watched Dr. Strangelove, focusing on the scenes in the War Room with the Russian ambassador talking about the Doomsday Device and how the USA was not informed of its creation sooner only because Premier Kissov wanted it to be a surprise...and then the world ended.

He'll put all his armies on Paupau New Guinea and Kamchatka.

You win nothing. Trump wins with a huge distraction of talking tough on Twitter while russiagate withers and dies. Oh and Lil' two scoops gets to go golfing

If you want to know what Trump is planning, hack is personal phone.  He still has that out of date Android, yeah?

Telegraph is so old-fashioned. Trump will tweet his intentions at 3 am, which will be mid-afternoon in Pyongyang. He's nice that way.

Translation: Trump will not coordinate a response with our allies, but instead will do some random crap at the last moment and call it a day.

This is fine. When Seoul suffers a rocket barrage from Best Korea they'll appreciate Donnie's strategic secrecy.

South Korea already told him not to. Very telling.

2017-09-04 03:29:39 PM  
yeah, great point kellyanne. i can't see any genuine reason why trump would go and broadcast what he's going to do to kim jong-un, given putin will already have told the latter anyway
 
2017-09-04 03:29:39 PM  
Of course he won't.  Because twitter is technically not a broadcast medium.
 
2017-09-04 03:36:00 PM  
So this reminds me: I've been playing New Vegas again. I've spent most of my Labor Day weekend loading up mods. . . mostly visual enhancements, UI adjustments, and a few balancing tweaks to make the game a bit harder in some places and play easier in others. It feels good to be back in the saddle again. . . it'll be good practice for when we inevitably do have to scrounge a nuclear wasteland for caps.

Also, have a screenie of the game with high resolution textures, improved load distances, and the orange vignette removed!

Sounds like a risky plan
 
2017-09-04 03:42:33 PM  
There is no action to be done until NK actually hits something of value. Then, and only then, are there actions to be taken.
 
2017-09-04 03:43:28 PM  
Ask Putin. He knows
 
2017-09-04 03:43:40 PM  
She says that but tomorrow at 5am he will have a shiatter storm about lil Kim and how he will wipe him off the map or something some dumb kid would say on call of duty.

It's a secret plan sir. If he tells the public, DOD, or DOS then ISIS knows and it won't work. Therefore he can never tell anyone the plan ever. Unless you want ISIS to win, is that what you want?
 
2017-09-04 03:50:38 PM  
Because look what happened when he told Syria: they moved their stuff and we bombed an empty air field. Fool me once so I don't fool me again.
 
2017-09-04 03:51:35 PM  
"I'm not gonna tell people my secret plan" is his goto response when he doesn't have a plan. He's used that for defeating ISIS, for healthcare and for tax reform already.
 
2017-09-04 03:55:26 PM  
He's gonna make Kim pay for the Messkin wall.

Trump considers us already at war with them. This is what he criticized Obama over: letting your enemy know your plans, such as publicly giving timetables and stuff.

He's treating NK like ISIS or the Taliban.

I agree with you. Trump does not have a clue and remains completely out of his depth.

I suggest sanctions enforced by everybody including China and Russia. An unstable regime claiming to have nuclear weapons and means to deliver them is not in their interests either.

I wonder if a Korean Peninsula unified under Seoul would be preferred by China instead of the crazy Kim Dynasty?

I think it might be reasonable to suspect that Trump isn't really in charge of the situation any more.  He can say whatever stupid shiat he wants.  Mattis and Tillerson are calling the shots.
 
2017-09-04 04:35:31 PM  
He can't tell us his plan because he doesn't have one. He's winging it, totally flying by the seat of his pants, being reactive instead of pro-active. That's not leadership; that's a 7th grader trying be one of the cool kids.

He might test the waters, but almost always goes with whatever gets the most attention and doesn't care if it is good or bad.  Not to say he is as likely to flipflop between performances as not.  And if he doesn't get enough attention from the original broadcast, expect his actions to be a bit different.

Testing the waters is not broadcasting in advance.  Hitler managed to get Chamberlain to give him Munich on a silver plater by insisting he would invade otherwise.  He even managed to get an agreement with Stalin that involve shipping him all the oil he needed, right up till he attacked the USSR (which again, he had talked about since coming to power).
/Chechoslavakia probably could have stopped Germany.  Those defences were strong.
//Hitler never believed it coontil he saw them in person).  Probably helped him be convincing.
///I have a nagging suspicion Chamberlain wanted to keep the power of the "Great Power club" and didn't want lesser nations interfering in "their betters" affairs.
