So, one thing people do not understand is that much of the world only understands and respects power. When the US waffles time and again it just creates an environment where a country like NK just threatens over and over and they get what they want. Old Kim has been waiting for us to blink and it seems Trump never blinks...

Maybe that is having them to play a different tune, what you all think?


If Kim Jong is able to launch all the test missiles he wants, and set off nuclear bomb tests without repercussions, it seems as if we're "blinking" constantly.

From an optics and credibility point of view, the U.S. should stop drawing lines in the sand, if we're not going to take action to shut-down Kim Jong's nuclear weapons program.


Didn't Pence and Trump say the "era of strategic patience" was over? If that's the case, what's up with repeated sanctions which do not work? Trump KNOWS they don't.

If we keep drawing lines in the sand and Kim keeps crossing them, he won't take us seriously. In the meantime, he's perfecting his wmd's (not just nukes).

As for the ongoing talks between North and South Korea, it is my understanding it's about the Winter Olympics only. It doesn't surprise me that Trump's taking credit for that.

Sanctions have other Clues to it then just stopping trade With North Korea.

It gives you a idea who's on who's team, and how determined they are to stay With their team.

THe reason the US have not and can not attack North Korea is because NK have very strong team members on their side of the sanctions. The US wants to take out NK. The problem is that right now the US will also have to fight China and Russia in the process.

Since the US have not attacked NK at this point is because the US dont think its a good idea to do so.

The US are set up to attack NK only.... not two other superpowers. The team mates on the US side of the sanctions probably dont think its a good idea either.

The action is to truly shut the country down with real crippling sanctions. It looks like the latest sanctions towards Iran are having affects...
