The appeasement & naivety of Presidents Bill Clinton, GW Bush, and Barack Obama are responsible for the nuclear DPRK and Iran we see today. Not Trump. Pre-emptive action is better than a retaliatory one. Not only is it better, for us, but protecting the U.S. from rogue regimes with nuclear capability who threaten to attack us on a regular basis is the responsibility of the Commander In Chief. The enemy doesn’t get a free hit.
Is it all fake news from anonymous sources? If true, is the intelligence community right this time? If you were the President, what would you do? Sacrifice a few cities to see if Kim Jong-un is serious, or take his sorry ass out? Practically ensuring a devastating artillery attack on Seoul, South Korea.
Moreover, are the American people up to the task? Would they succumb to nuclear blackmail? Would they let history repeat itself and take the Neville Chamberlain route, sacrificing a few American cities with millions of casualties?
Regardless of whether the American people would support the President if he chose to act preemptively, it isn’t our decision to make. It is only his. And the time to act is sooner than later. There are no good options with this Axis of Evil actor.
Not long after GW Bush was President, he was thrown into being a wartime president after 9/11/2001. The way things are going, and unless Kim John-un changes his tune, and quickly, I’m afraid that President Trump, already inheriting the war on terror, will be the next wartime president. Only with North Korea, it shouldn’t be a long one.
Since the story broke today, Kim Jong-un is already threatening to bomb Guam. His big mistake.
The Lunch Counter supports President Trump. Unlike recent past presidents, this one doesn’t bluff, nor does he kick the can down the road. I trust him to fix the problem he was given.
