Are we seriously this scared of a country that can't even keep the lights on?
Am I supposed to believe that our intelligence community hasn't kept up with the goings on and would respond quickly if there was any actual danger?
Why not just cut off all cheese going in there?
And his bipartisan-lauded Secretary of War who essentially threatened to end them as a people.
So what do you think will happen? Assassination? The Island of Korea? Or just a bunch of talk until he dies of a heart attack at age 41?
It doesn't matter who is in office.
Kim acted like this when Obama was in office and that guy was the definition of diplomatic.
That's true to an extent. If T had not gutted the State Department, it might be less of an issue.
This is a valid point, not just for policy but in terms of understanding the public. Some say, no, you need to leave experts in charge. Others say, you mean the experts who gave us Iraq War 2.0? The Libya bombing and Benghazi? The ones who backed the Muslim Brotherhood against al-Sisi? The ones who gave us ISIS and the migrants surge? Maybe after a certain amount of horrific failure the term "expert" should no longer apply. It's going to be hard to sell the latter group on the value of seniority in a dept. that's facilitated so much danger and so much suffering.
I can't really argue at historical cock-ups. It's a valid point. However, I cannot imagine that *this* is a better approach, either. We can agree that things were broken, without agreeing that putting a belligerent child in place of them is a good idea.
When was that?
