This guy is nuts. He will hit us first, make no mistake on that. Even the defector say it is so. Better to hit him first, he has been warned enough.

China and Russia have both said if we struck first they wouldn’t support us. But at this point who gives a shit. What, we’re supposed to wait til that little, fat, demented slob actually blows our east coast up? Give me a break. I don’t know what the POTUS is waiting for. We’ve been threatened enough, time to take action. But buy gold and silver before it starts, and stock up on emergency food supplies. I’m a prepper, you all should be too. 💣

We should boycott good make from china , China need us more then we need them , because American is the larger consumer buying power in the world , china had to feed over 4 billions his people’s the larger population in the world after Indian and there are still lot of poor people’s in china today . China can not be trust they steal our technology , without United State china will not makes it. Japan and South Koren needed to arm themselves rather the US tax payer. This will make china to come to the table. For South Koren we American don’t need them to tell us how US to respond to N Koren, if our country are being targeted. So S Koren you need to shut up you do not had any say what US will responding to N Koren. I am so sick of our hard earning dollars are defending the world and with no respect , the world think we American are entitled to defend them and police the whole world. American needs to be stronge and mine our own business. Nato and on . I hope in 2020 we will had some one run for President will get ourselves out of NATO and the rest of the world . China and Russian can not afford to do what US does. S Koren and Japan you need to shut up and defend your own country while United State will defend our own country without any country to tell us how to think and act

Because of Russia and China being N.K allies we wouldn’t want to initiate. Let N.K launch against us. We can blast them out of the sky, but once they launch we can rain hell upon them legally and their allies have nothing to say. I’d stay very quiet and not say another word and don’t let them know what were thinking. stay on high alert, NO negotiations needed anymore, just silence. Cant trust Russia or China they control N.Korea and you can bet anything N.K does it with their permission, Clintons gave the Nuke materials to Russia and they conveyed it to N.Korea. Pudgy hasn’t done anything but throw words , he hasn’t physically made collateral damage, he’s a child screaming for his bottle. Trump shouldn’t even be responding to him by lowing himself like two children. The adult observes, evaluates the corrective treatment for a spoiled little brat. A surgeon is more effective. Just need a N.K. who will assassinate him. Put a 500 mil. bounty on his head and watch the worms come out. His whole country would be at his throat.

Yes! Don’t wait for another Pearl Harbor and lose thousands of lives !!!!!
November 29, 2017,8:00 pm
It is an easy solution we took out 2 of their test rockets earlier in the year
We can fry all the grid with EMP strikes anytime we want . We as a country are Stubid though.i have a blog 4years old on face book every state should have Faraday cages around their electrical grids to protect from a EMP strike in the upper atmosphere .it it hit the east coast say New England Literally Millions would die . Only 2 states currently have these. Congress has mentioned it and Nothing done it only would cost 5-10 million dollars. That is Peanuts .this is very troublesome .People write to your congressman and complain before it is too late.
Even MIT, and other experts agreed Totally Act Now . Just think no electricity ,no gas no water people would freeze to death, no way to get food ,die of thirst !! Write To your Congressman or representative,and the White House Please don’t ignore this . Do we need another 9-11 before you take this seriously ? Let’s hope not.
November 29, 2017,7:01 pm
Yes, they should show Force, if that don’t work they should build up military might at their border. They should also placed missiles on the East Coast because they can’t send thousands of them over they can only send one or two over. We got to worry about going to war with China and starting another world war which we all know nobody wants. But I agree we have to do something?
November 29, 2017,5:58 pm
CITIZEN MAIN SAYS GIVE them all chances to cease and desist, and if that FAILS, well, that’s the time to kick butt end forget the names….ive LIVED THRU the original Korean war and you don’t give them breathing room, ever!!! JUST DO.IT.
November 29, 2017,5:48 pm
You bet that we had better do something NOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
November 29, 2017,5:20 pm
Why isn’t the UN dealing with North Korea?
November 29, 2017,5:16 pm
First North Korea launch two rockets in space there in space now.There rockets are pinpointing at us. There ready there to launch on us a Emp .which will shut the whole power grid on us.I understand the research I’ve done, which I hope I’m wrong.US must shoot them down fast now in space before they decide to destroy us.I headed North Korea has about ten subs that can take out are shore lines They must destroy them fast as they can.If we don’t, before this year is over, I cover that USA will be destroyed.I believe that China behind this and China not going to do anything so then they may attack us .We must declare emergency, to build about 50 more subs.More rockets must be built fast.Time is running out fast.Don’t be North Korea is ready them rockets in space setting there to be launch sooner than you think, or they wouldn’t have them there.They torture the people from the ship call the Pueblo and troops. Get them now.We should use a sonic weapon that will destroy everything in its path We have that weapon and need to use it
July 10, 2017,5:10 pm
No, we can defend ourselves but at the first show of real aggression by this fool we should take him out. Maybe his military will do it for us.i
July 8, 2017,9:51 pm
What are the odds that they will not possibly blow themselves up? We should have a defense system set up to blow up anything they send to any western leaning country. If we shoot first, the whole world will come down on us when it isn’t really necessary. Mattis knows what to do and when to do it. Let’s put our trust in him and our President.
July 8, 2017,8:23 pm
The US should not bomb North Korea , but should take measure to let NK know the US won’t sit idol if their threats continue. The US should be ready at a minuet second should any country try to invade our country.
July 8, 2017,6:27 pm
Enough diplomacy with this petulant child.Time to show him some American muscle.
July 8, 2017,4:03 pm
Some have spoken of using the MOB bomb like the one we used recently in the Afgan. debacle. The problem with that is it is too heavy and bulky to launch with a rocket. They require a fairly slow very large plane that would be shot down once it entered N. Korean airspace. We have many different size/yield nuclear bombs that can take out a city like Pongyang and their development sites for missels and nuclear bombs. Of course the liberals are going to scream bloody murder about civilian casualties. What did we do to Germany and Japan in WWII? There were probably more civilians killed than soldiers which is bad but, I would rather it be them than anyone in the U.S.
July 8, 2017,3:53 pm
Yes, we must take them out shortly, because we have no choice. It will be horrific for the Koreans on both sides of the DMZ, but it must be done. Either we take them out now, or they take us out later. I choose the former.
July 8, 2017,3:09 pm
By preemptive strike, I mean a surgical strike with the MOB’s we have and recently used one to blow out all the labyrinth tunnels the US built when we supported the taliban and were taken over by the isis demons. This strike would only kill some personell working on the nukes. No cvilians would be killed. It would eliminate N Korea as a threat forever and the two countries could finaly become one Korea again.
July 8, 2017,3:08 pm
Britt Chamberlin went to talk to hitler in WW2 to get a promise of no attack on GB and hitlere promised. Soon after Chamberlin came back and assured that they were not going to be attacked, the rockets came flying!!
This kju fat boy doesn’t even make bones about attacking the world, as soon as he has the nukes to do it!
PRE-EMPTIVE STRIKE AGAINST THE NK INSTALLATIONS WILL TAKE OUT MOST IF NOT ALL THE THREAT! REPEAT, IF NECESSARY, AS WE DO WITH PESTS! NOT MANY N KOREANS IF ANY AT ALL WILL GET KILLED! END OF PROBLEM
July 8, 2017,2:57 pm
ONLY AS A LAST RESORT!!!!
July 8, 2017,2:12 pm
I voted yes,even though a strike against N.Korea could lead to WWIII,NOKO must be stopped.
July 8, 2017,2:10 pm
I would build up our Naval, and Army forces including shoring up defensive positions in Japan, The Philippines, Hawaii, even in Alaska with missiles that can intercept anything they or China might use. Also, use last minute Diplomacy through the Russians and Chinese to stop this madman, if that doesn’t work then military Action should always be last resort.
July 8, 2017,1:53 pm
We should do what Reagan did with the Soviets. We are still the largest economy in the world and can influence allies to leverage that strength to bring the to their knees. To put it in perspective, China’s economy is 1/3 of what ours is.
July 8, 2017,1:32 pm
We need to take politics out of this conversation because the politicians have not being able to get anything done in Washington but disagreeing !!
July 8, 2017,1:29 pm
Why should we wait when we going to have do something now or later !!
July 8, 2017,1:17 pm
Those who consider NK a “little” country are not aware of what goes on. Having atomic weapons and ICBM’s makes any country a big country. Waiting for NK to act first may bear a terrible cost. We ignore the fact that this guy may be insane.
July 7, 2017,5:03 pm
We need to put a well armed force in their nabrhood and just wait till they do something stupid
March 20, 2017,10:50 am
No preemptive strike is necessary. The U.S., its allies and China can bring
North Korea to its knees with sanctions and any diplomacy that might remain.
March 19, 2017,9:11 pm
Well we have bigger concerns and unless North Korea starts acting up we should not launch a military invasion.
March 18, 2017,6:51 pm
We should send a little bird down to eat the few worms infecting that pissant country and free it’s people to be unbrainwashed and join up with the south and become one civil nation !!
March 18, 2017,3:10 pm
I’d love to blow North Korea off the map, but we’d better wait until we have a causus belli (cause of war) to DO it. That means the NKs invading the Demilitarized Zone or launching even a limited attack on our troops. If we attack THEM without what the WORLD will call provocation, we’ll never hear the end of it — and President Trump will be IMPEACHED. Not fair, not right, but unfortunately that’s the way the world works. The “big guy” nations (us, in this case) can’t attack the “little guy” nations (No. Korea) unless RESPONDING to THEIR use of force. It’s like 7th graders and 2nd graders on the playground: the big boys will be tagged as bullies (and suspended or expelled), even if the little kid is strong and maybe even had a weapon.
March 18, 2017,3:05 pm
Now we have real patriots and a real man running this country, Chunko-monko, knows that, new sheriff in town.
March 18, 2017,3:03 pm
North korea better wake up. She continues to make threats against The United States of America, we will blow her off the map. We have the Greatest President and Secretary of State this Nation and the World have ever seen. We will not be bullied by a crazy man like Leader of North Korea. We will take proper action. Let me just say, that Iran is next. The world is going to see that we mean business. Thi is the new: “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”
March 18, 2017,2:03 pm
He is all talk no action
March 18, 2017,1:30 pm
Somebody had better take this little, fat weeble off the planet before he hurls a nuclear bomb at another country. He murdered his uncle and half-brother in cold blood. The guy is a satanic goon. Our wussified policies of the past 8 years have allowed this doofus to get away with everything. He has become emboldened. A drone could easily take care of this evil dictator. Donald Trump is not going to have the patience with this psychopath..
March 17, 2017,8:38 pm
Ever since he took America by storm in the 2016 election, Pres. Trump has attracted controversy and attention in equal measure. Now conservative readers can go behind the scenes of his White House and his winning campaign — check out our CBC Reading Roundup to find out more!
“Within the first eleven months, we canceled or delayed over 1,500 planned regulatory actions, more than any previous president. Instead of eliminating two old regulations for every one new regulation, we have eliminated 22! We aimed for 2 for 1, and in 2017, we hit 22-1.”
“I promised we would pass a massive tax cut for the everyday, working American families who are the backbone and the heartbeat of our country…. We want to give you, the American people, a giant tax cut for Christmas. And when I say giant, I mean giant.”
