President Donald Trump threatened North Korea "with fire and fury like the world has never seen" on Tuesday after reports that the communist country has mastered one of the final hurdles to being able to strike the United States with a nuclear missile.

Just what the world needs. Two nuts threating each other.

He's sounds like a tin horn dictator.

Not that trump is even aware of this, but this rhetoric plays right into the hands of those of his supporters who subscribe to the biblical elements of a fiery, furious, and catastrophic end to humankind. After all, the selected few, Pence and Rapert among them, will enter into the kingdom of heaven on that day, right? Well, they say, bring it on.

This is troublesome, mostly because at a time when we really need calm and rational leaders we have Trump on our side. I don't see this kind of response from China or Japan or even South Korea. If you consider the strike possibilities in the region, they have the most to lose in an aggressive North Korean act. Heck, when al Quaida struck our country Bush didn't talk about "fire and fury the world has never seen." Yes, we did talk about "shock and awe" with the bombing of Baghdad, but that was to describe the intensity of the battle and tactics of it.
...
But what you're also going to probably see as a news report later today here is the statement by Dr. Robert Jeffress, pastor of First Baptist, Dallas. Jeffress said "God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong Un," Not only that, but it's also on the First Baptist website. People like Jeffress are why I left the Baptist faith

"North Korea had best not make any more threats to the United States," Trump said."

We know Kim is a blustering bullyboy and nutcase. One would have hoped he wasn't speaking to a mirror and the president of the United States would would have an adult response or simply walk softly and carry a big stick. Sadly, we have the equivalent of two juveniles on a playground now in a nuclear whizzing contest.

I suppose no one needs a war more than a politician whose numbers are in the tank.....and boy, do we ever have that.
*
In response to the North Korea war of words, The Donald has taken a bunker mentality. Presidential aides hope that he can regain his focus and stay out of the sand traps today.
*
I hope restraint and discipline are exercised. You know, the two things Trump does not possess.
