Quick! It’s time for one of Trump’s love letters. Biden won’t kiss Kim’s behind, but Trump will.

Quick! Lets see how the much touted "America is back" policy by new swamp govern,ment works. So far, it is failure on all fronts.

So, no love letters to Biden then?

Just before the Biden Administration started, they realized the fat guy did NOTHING, NADA, ZILCH, with regards to vaccination programs, etc. I'd say Biden has done a lot to clear up the fat guy's mess. And there's a lot more cleansing to do.

Oh look, NK is angry. Oh look, my frozen pizza is ready!

so wasn’t it the US President’s fault when NK launched missiles? Has that changed?

If by "fat guy" you mean Trump, maybe you forgot that he started the vaccine program that the Biden govt is now using. And in regard to NK, he met the NK propaganda on equal terms (called pacing in rethoric), managed to engage with them, and got Kim to stop the nuclear testing and the nuclear bomb threat.

Now with the establishment back in power, the clueless old guard is going back to pompous posturing, which acomplishes nothing, and will end up giving concessions to NK. It is not like we have not seen this movie before. Remember who gave NK the nuclear plants in exchange for empty promises in the first place.

The North will not stop no matter what. Why? They have China. They have China backing everything they do. Russia and Iran as well. Giving them solid fuel tech. China pushes towards total world dominance on so many fronts. On Thursday Biden in a phone call to Boris Johnson told the PM. That he and Biden should prevent China from passing the United States to become the most powerful country in the world, vowing to invest heavily to ensure America prevails as well the U.,K. in the ever-growing rivalry between the world's two largest economies. North Korea is the Chinese puppet. China's alter ego if you will.

@Pukey2. What are you talking about? Trump put operation warp speed in motion and due to that program. Front line Doctors and nurses have been inoculated and can work to heal patients and ease pain and at the end for some (ease the suffering). The benefits of this program were re-packaged by the Biden admin and given another name. Biden is using many of Trumps administration policies and and he is taking full credit for them. Taking credit for the pervious administrations work. Its always been that and always will in American politics.

Many hated Trump we all get that. But to say this man does not love the American people or love America and has no heart to see people suffering from the virus is non sense.

Back on the North. As long as a Dem/or Repub POTUS sits in office and opposes or contests the North so called right to protect itself. In five to ten years it will not matter. The North is making hella strides in it's nuclear and missile programs. There a nuclear player just like the rest soon. And insulating China.

North Korea is just part of Beijing's plan for inching closer towards world and economic dominance.

NK food situation is dire. Recently some soldiers guarding the NK/China border, who are normally better off than most through taking bribes from smuggling, crossed into China as a result of food shortages/starvation rations. The Kim regime, after promising to improve the standard of living, might be launching missiles to drum up local loyalty for the regime as well as to try to get food aid from the new US administration. This strategy did work for them in the past. Long time before the next harvest comes so expect a lot more launches.

Why was the DPRK still working on their nuclear ambitions, and carrying out missile launches all throughout the one term PotUS era?

It was all about photo ops and vanity projects for both leaders.

Dialogue was needed. Is needed. Not circuses.

“If the U.S. continues with its thoughtless remarks without thinking of the consequences, it may be faced with something that is not good.”

And what do you propose?

He said the North doesn’t have options other than building “invincible physical power” to defend itself because the United States and South Korea “constantly pose military threats” and continue with their combined military exercises, which the North claims are an invasion rehearsal.

I am not sure if this guy is totally deluded or if he needs some serious medicle help, or it could be hes been listening to the countries only TV station,s continuious 12 hours a day of brain washing propaganda.

Say what you want about the DPRK, they're certainly predictable. They've been playing the same tune for 50 years, and they've taught every other country in the world to dance to it. Would you play poker with Kim?

@geronimo - China will give them all the food and fuel they want if it keeps refugees from crossing the river into China in large numbers. It's a small price to pay, China is a rich enough country that can feed its own people (mostly) and doesn't have to worry about political dissent - until its own citizens start to compare it to the DPRK. Citizens see that people from the clinet state across the river are starving, they're gonna talk.

Kim throwing a tantrum to see if maybe he can help Trump get back in power....

Putin, XI, The Mullahs all helped - just throw in one more tyrant...

Expect Kim to manufacture some dirt on Hunter...Rudy is ready to fly to Pyongyang....

They definitely are not, and that’s the problem and danger. But if you insist, then tell all of us, when the next missiles start, on what route they will fly and if they have nuclear warheads applied or not. Thanks in advance, you great almighty predictor. lol

-7 ( +1 / -8 )

They cannot weaponize their missiles with nukes at this point, they cannot make warheads small enough. They will be fired in the same direction as they have always been, over the East Sea/Sea of Japan/your term here. You're even more predictable than the North is with your mindless blather.

Trump would and could. His successor is only able to play tic-tac-toe, so we are back square zero of NK getting away with its tried and successful game of "appear crazy and dangerous and get aid".

The North has so far ignored the Biden administration's efforts to reach out, saying it won't engage in meaningful talks while Washington persists with “hostile” policies. 

Biden is an establishment interventionist. He also professes to be a testosterone fueled tough guy who likes to take people behind the gym to beat them up. His five draft deferments belie his macho image of himself but with his failing mental abilities he may be under the delusion that he is Rambo. He is even more talking about deferring withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Luckily we have a President who doesn’t have Russian handlers, so can be sure of a rational response!!!!

His handlers surely control everything he does, including the picture flash cards with pictures at his scripted "press conference". How re-assuring that you seem to know they are not Russian, LOL

 Would you play poker with Kim?

I would never play poker with somebody who has nukes that can destroy at least 12 major cities in the US.

I would suggest expensive whisky, Cuban cigars and lapdances.
