Having watched for years this going on back and forth, this article and the comments by the other posters the following can be stated:
As far as Trump being unfit for the office. Is anyone really ready for that position? We do not know about the mind set of Trump, as there is no law
that would compel a president to have a battery of neurological and psychological testing done. There was talk of such, after it came out that Reagan
had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease about 2 years after he had left office, with some suspecting that the man had symptoms earlier while in
office. So right now we can only speculate, and listen to rumors, a few which are scary, about the mind set of this president.
As far as North Korea, the reality, is that the US is ill prepared to go into another armed conflict against another country. Nor do I see this being
a win or an easy win. The US understands tactics, but does not understand how and why North Korea does what it does, or says. Nor does it want to,
that is very apparent. The leader of North Korea, has to put on a show, a dangerous show, but a show non the less, for propaganda purposes. It needs
to show to its people that yes it can take on a bigger power and win, and that is what it is doing and what it has been doing since the armistice that
put a hold on the Korean conflict. That conflict never was ended, there was no peace treaty, it was just a very long cease fire.
So can this lukewarm conflict heat up, yes, can it be sparked by a word, yes. However, here is what both sides are wanting, and that is for the other
to throw the proverbial first punch. And therein lies both the problem and solution. The US is waiting for North Korea to throw the first punch and
it is stalling and waiting for the US to throw the first punch. And ultimately, it is only going to escalate and keep going around and around. The
winning move in this case is not to take the bait. Kim put out a tweet, and Trump had to respond to it. Kim goaded and got Trump to respond. The
reality is that Trump is being played, and hopefully the Presidential advisors will quickly start steering and getting the President not to respond or
follow through with anything.
