Yes, it appears they plan on playing brinkmanship right to the bitter end. I think they don't think we'll do anything and I think that is a dangerous gamble with a President Trump. He is an unknown entity and it appears he isn't afraid to use the military. Maybe he should be a little more afraid.
Like I said tensions are up higher and higher. With Trump saying that we may take military action soon and the secretary of state backing that up with the UN. I think we are very close to a new war.
Yes, quite possibly. I still hope that this is some elaborate plan we cooked up with China where we threaten and China uses that to get his generals to stage a coup before war breaks out to save themselves.
A US official now says North Korea's test missile exploded over land and did not reach the Sea of Japan, also known as the East Sea. Ref. CNN.
Does it matter when it exploded any more. As long as they keep playing this game the more it is getting dangerous. I do not think China is in with us if I remember some of China's representatives at the UN di not seem too pleased with the Secretary of states speech toward the DPRK.
Yes, I'm hoping that is part of the plot. Yeah, I know I'm hoping against hope.
North Korea has fired an unidentified ballistic missile from North Pyong'an Province that jetted into waters east of the Korean Peninsula, according to South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff.
The projectile may have landed in Japan's Exclusive Economic Zone, which extends 200 nautical miles from its coastline, official from Japan's Ministry of Defense told CNN.
The launch comes just after President Donald Trump spoke to the leaders of both China and Japan, two important regional actors in the ongoing standoff with Pyongyang over its nuclear ambitions. Ref. CNN.
They are going to force our hand here in short order and this will lead to a very ugly situation.
