Why don't we just cool it a bit and quit being an international bully to support our corporate interests? When I see Trump and Pence wearing their macho military jackets it makes me sick.

Could this war monger kindly be the first in line to sign up for deployment? I can never understand why these numbskulls think war is like in the movies!! Incredible numbskullery!!

Once again we have the US saying 'do as we say, not as we do'.

the Kim Regime continues to brainwash their people and military that the United States is hell bent on starting a war against them.

You realize that it's not only N. Korea doing that right? The US is brainwashing their people and military that NK is hell bent on starting a war against them.

Openly boasting of pursuing ICBM capability to nuke the United States is not very nice and eventually the American public will fully back a response to this never ending provocation.

Again, the US is openly boasting of having the capability to destroy NK, and eventually the NK people will also back a response to the never ending provocation.

Definitely, am not sure who is the bully here.

"I do not want to fight you. Do not touch your gun, attempt to draw or even make any funny movement."

Classic movie lines to justify blowing away the bad guy when, backed into a corner, he almost inevitably suddenly feels that old desperado urge to go for broke.

Basically, there are 2 choices. Pay N. Korea to stop or force them to stop. There isn't any easy way around it.

Or as Eppee alluded to, leave them to rattle their sabers.

I don't mind if they're just rattling their sabers, but what worries a lot of people is whether a cash strapped N. Korea would sell nukes to anybody with enough money to buy one.

""We're not trying to pick a fight so don't try and give us one."

The problem is that everyone in the UN and every other country already knows this. But the Kim Regime continues to brainwash their people and military that the United States is hell bent on starting a war against them. Openly boasting of pursuing ICBM capability to nuke the United States is not very nice and eventually the American public will fully back a response to this never ending provocation.

Words having meaning, Mr. Kim. You are "out of here" if you continue to press the button. Former presidents of the USA tried to buy time, but just like Louis XVI, "it is time to turn off the lights, the party (will be ) over" for your child, too. Why doesn't he understand that his child does not have a chance of seeing the future?

"U.S. tells N Korea: We don't want a fight; don't start one"

How many times has the US invaded and bombed other countries on some pretext or another?

No wonder North Korea attempts to develop their own nuclear weapons?

Why do you want them to stop anything ?
