A U.S. Air Force B-1B bomber prepares for takeoff Saturday at Andersen Air Force Base on the South Pacific island of Guam. Bombers from the base, along with F-15 fighter escorts from Okinawa, Japan, flew over international waters near North Korea, farther north of the demilitarized zone than any U.S. aircraft had gone this century.

SEOUL, South Korea -- U.S. Air Force bombers flew over international waters east of North Korea on Saturday as tension simmers between the two nations and their respective leaders, and a tremor earlier struck close to North Korea's nuclear test site.

These are two kids taunting each other with juvenile jabs. I'm ashamed that our president feels this is the appropriate response. Yea, I get that you right wingers want tough talk, but that can be accomplished with the language of an adult and not a kid. In fact, Kim Jong Un is actually responding with more mature, albeit tough, talk than Trump. Kind of makes me wonder who is more intelligent.
...
I agree with one analyst's view that this talk is doing more to diminish our influence in the world than increase it. When the world looks to leadership, they don't look to a bully. They look to someone who can accomplish the task without escalation of tension. We are ceding our role as world leader more than when Bush was in office.
...
I know, it just juices the Trump demographic up. But think about it, this is the same group who took pride when Trump said he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and they would still support him. I think that speaks to who makes up his base and the low grade comments in here by his supporters are more than proof of that.

If anyone thinks North Korea will give up their Nuclear Ambitions, All I can say to you is see what Happened to Hussein, and Gadaffi. Russia is Correct when Putin tells the World that North Korea will eat grass before they will give up Nuclear Capabilities. Trump needs to make SOME kind of deal with North Korea, and Stop making his Ignorant Threats,
