President Donald Trump on Friday issued another warning of swift and forceful retaliation against nuclear-armed North Korea, declaring the U.S. military "locked and loaded." He said the isolated nation's leader "will regret it fast" if he takes any action against U.S. territories and allies.

Two nuts going at each other.

Well, TT, this is how the governor of Guam sees it, and I agree with him. What have you got against Guam, TT?
The governor of Guam, Eddie Calvo, backed President Donald Trump’s warning to rain “fire and fury” on North Korea on Wednesday night. “As far as I’m concerned, as an American citizen, I want a president that says that if any nation such as North Korea attacks Guam, attacks Honolulu, attacks the West Coast, that they will be met with hell and fury,”

Meanwhile, here's the terror supporting co-chair of the DNC weighing in on the situation to the Nutroots Nation:
Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) said on Friday that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un was acting "more responsible than" President Donald Trump. Speaking at the left-wing Netroots Nation conference in Atlanta, Ellison, who serves as Vice-Chair of the Democratic National Committee, spoke briefly on the latest tensions between North Korea and the United States. Ellison spoke critically of Trump's handling of the situation and called the North Korean despot more responsible than Trump. "North Korea is a serious thing. You have this guy [Trump] making bellicose threats against somebody else who has very little to lose over there," Ellison said.

Mozarky2 is reporting from the REAL "Nutroots Nation" -- Breitbart, InfoWars and the like. I doubt his report is even accurate, but Trump is trying so hard to out-Kim Kim that Kim probably IS acting more rationally -- even though his threat against Guam is unacceptable (and should be to ANY President).

RBB, you are living proof that today's "progressives" are in complete denial of reality, driven by nothing but an irrational hatred of Trump.
Do you deny what Governor Calvo and Ellison said?

Maybe if the last three presidents had taken a tough stand Guam and many major cities in the US would not be vulnerable now to the crazy fat kid.

Libertas, what "tough stance" are you advocating? Everything in that regions hinges on China, including regime change. To impose sanctions requires China. To negotiate requires China. To attempt regime change requires China who has a treaty with North Korea to prevent such.
...
So enlighten me. What more could the past three presidents who actually worked with a reluctant China have done to avoid this situation? Oh, the DKRP has been just as aggressive under Trump as it has been under others, if not more. Trump is just running his mouth which puts all you in the Trump demographic in a state of weird infatuation.

Hey Moz - Dimwits like RBear and Ellison want to see a mushroom cloud hanging over California before Trump says any more mean words about Little Kim. Seriously. That's their end game. How else to explain their inability to grasp the significance of using the strongest terms possible in light of Little Kim's recent test firings of icbms?

RB, Was Reagan nuts when he went to Berlin and demanded "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall"? Is that wall still standing?
There are currently "back door" negotiations going on that you probably haven't heard about due to your limitied field of vision. Admit it, your biggest fear is that Trump will prove to be right.
So, retreat to your mom's basement with your pussy hat, stuffed animals, and adult coloring books, clutch your pearls and leave this to the real patriots.
BTW, it's DPRK...

moz, I don't have a damn thing against Guam. Surely you are smart enough to know that NK already knows what would and will happen should they attack Guam. However, we have two bullies trying to out bully the other, neither of which have acted like they were playing with a full deck of cards all turned the correct way. I'll remind you, that I have worn the uniform of this country, and taken an oath to protect it. There is no clause in that oath that states it ever ends, so I have always considered it to be a lifetime commitment. Now,
just one friggin mistake by either side and the outcome could very well be more than you or your children or grandchildren can handle is that an option that you like. If so, tell me how much you love your family, convincingly. As far as Reagan's statement, he was aware that the USSR was broke financially. We had finally spent them into to poor house on weapons. I take it that you have seen somewhat of a turn around in Russia's attitude in the last few years, it's know has having money to spend now. Makes a hell of a difference whether it's an individual or a nation. One of their new gold mines is OIL. It seems like you and Packy may have got deferments, since you are so ready to go to war. You go looking for trouble usually you'll find it. Did either of you have heel spurs? You are no more of a "real" patriot than anyone else, so you can save that for a time it may be needed.
