    Did we fight on the wrong side in the Korean War? Russia, China, and N Korea seem like Trump's staunchest Allies!

    I doubt the Korea negotiations will come to much more than the US pulling out for nothing concrete from NK.
    The whole shebang has been for American domestic consumption and Donald's electoral chances.

    But I will be prepared to eat a great deal of crow if I am wrong.

    It will likely get worse. If we piss off enough of our allies, we might be the target of sanctions and embargoes.
    How do we form a mutiny? Our new captain is navigating poorly.

    Who is left that he hasn't pissed off? Not Putin, that's for sure!

    The immanent existential threat to the United States has been eliminated and we can sleep easy tonight. All hail the chief. Time for America to get itself all wound up tight as a drum over some other immanent existential threat, TBA shortly, probably by tweet. Maybe a real war this time. It's been a while. Stay tuned.
    There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.

    The Republican party in particular cannot affords not to be on some sort of war footing somewhere. Goodness me, the MIC donations might dry up. And what do you do with a some thousands of surplus soldiery? Sack them of course, and then what? Wait for suicides to take care of the problem?

    I'd think that there would be more than enough overdue infrastructure projects to keep the returned military busy.

    He now says that the media is America's greatest threat, now that he has dealt with North Korea.

    In fact, an awakened, vigilant media is America's greatest HOPE, of course.

    Trump is the sort the Electoral College was SUPPOSED to protect us against. It didn't work. However, the real problem today is not the Electoral College's shortcomings, but that after two years about half of Americans still support the miserable POS when he calls the Media our worst threat! That means when you walk down a crowded city street during noon hour (in Boston they block vehicles off the streets for noon hour in the urban center so pedestrians can fill the streets, curb-to-curb) HALF OF THE FOLKS YOU SEE do not really believe in "freedom of the press".

    What's amazing is your apparent ignorance when it comes to reality.
