President Donald Trump called an emergency meeting on the Fourth of July to formulate a 'measured response' to North Korea's first intercontinental ballistic missile test, amid fears it could reach as far as Alaska.
North Korea declared Tuesday that it had finally achieved its dream of building an intercontinental ballistic missile, saying it would 'fundamentally put an end to the US nuclear war threat and blackmail'.
U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson later confirmed the latest missile test was with an intercontinental ballistic missile.
And Tillerson says that’s a new escalation of the threat posed to the United States and the world by North Korea.

That has absolutely no bearing on the current situation, even if that is true. And I am not advocating the use of nukes, either. But we cannot, at all costs, even if it means some American lives, let this nutcase get better delivery systems. He's already threatening Alaska. I guess it's going to take threatening Washington, DC first, huh, before anything is done? No. Hell no. Your smart ass little comment means nothing. Not in context.
But more importantly, let's stick with the story here. And the story is that that's what I am hearing. A preemptive strike is well on its way to having grass roots level support. And little Kim better watch out if the American people get overwhelmingly behind that notion.

The US has done the same with Russia and China and even its allies (like Britain) for years.
