Well, I didn’t want to live forever anyway. If we’re gonna go out, might as well go out in a blaze of glory.
I’m not much of a Trump fan, but as a neocon, naturally I’m a racist warmonger. So I’m fine with the President of the United States openly threatening North Korea. CBS News:
President Trump addressed the ongoing crisis between the U.S. and North Korea at a briefing on opioids in New Jersey on Tuesday, issuing a stern warning to the regime for its continued provocations.
“North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States,” warned Mr. Trump from his golf club in Bedminster.
“They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen,” he told reporters. “He has been very threatening — beyond a normal statement,” Mr. Trump said of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. “As I said, they will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before.”
After many years of failure,countries are coming together to finally address the dangers posed by North Korea. We must be tough & decisive!

And if you don’t like it, well, you should’ve convinced the Democrats to nominate someone other than Hillary Clinton. America elected this guy, and this is how he does things.
Look on the bright side: Eventually he’ll deny he ever said it, and he’ll insist that everybody knows he didn’t. And then he’ll tweet something stupid or one of his surrogates will say something ridiculous on cable news, and you’ll have something else to distract you. Then one day you’ll see a blinding flash, and then nothing.
