As North Korea Crisis Escalates Trump Voters Should Be Transferred To 38th Parallel

August 8, 2017

At a time when the vast majority of the American public does not find President Trump honest, capable, or mired in the facts needed to run the nation as recent polls show–a major crisis is bearing down.  It is the nastiest political and international storm that has threatened the world in decades.

There is no way to underscore the level of angst besetting the nation after what can only be described as a major escalation with North Korea which took place today.  President Trump in a most un-presidential manner unleashed some of his harshest words yet against the rouge nation, just hours after reports that the country had developed a nuclear weapon small enough to fit on a missile.

The diplomatic community–the only legitimate group who can move us in a direction away from catastrophic results–surely are appalled by what Trump said today.

“North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States,” Trump stated, and then added, “They will be met with fire, fury and, frankly, power the likes of which this world has never seen before.”

A most unstable and daft remark if ever there was one delivered by a sitting president.  The sensible members of this nation are not sure where this now heads as the president is feared to be considering options that will lead to untold deaths.  He would gladly place those lives in  the ashes of history if it meant removing or undermining the Russian investigation into his corrupt family business dealings.    If he could use military events so to turn the headlines he would do so.  America and the world, be dammed.

This blog has been most adamant that North Korea be stopped from furthering its military mission regarding a nuclear device with missile technology.  With our state department not staffed with the needed professionals it has been Secretary Rex Tillerson who has attempted to pivot towards negotiations.  There must be a concerted effort with China to strike a deal.

What Trump has unleashed for rhetoric today is the very type of dreadful set of events that many warned about in the days leading to the election.  When it was noted that a skilled and proven resume was required to be the leader of the most important nation in the world, the less educated in this nation showed their contempt for intelligence and voted for Trump.  It is too bad that there is not now a way to transport those voters to the 38th Parallel boundary between North and South Korea.  Send them off to see the results of their lack of regard for acting responsibly at the voting booth.

U.S. intelligence reports has confirmed that while North Korea has constructed a nuclear weapon small enough to fit on a missile, that does not mean the country has fielded a nuclear-tipped intercontinental ballistic.  It is a large distinction worth noting.

But instead of acting with any sense of presidential composure and sense Trump opened up with a most pathetic and worsening example of playing into North Korea’s hand.   There is much to be said for knowledge, and only deep scorn to be heaped on those who fail to learn.

    Let me add that JFK was reading “Guns Of August” days prior to the Cuban Missile Crisis. He was thinking about international conflict and the loss of untold numbers from WW1. Trump has stated he does not like to read books………

    Absolutely agree T Jarosh. The fact that President Kennedy knew a great deal about history played a key role in how he handled that situation. You made a great point.

    Every American should be compelled to study the Cuban Missile Crisis and how Kennedy handled it. There should be a test.
