The recent North Korean military parade and rallies smack of Nazi rallies 1936-39.add child indoctrination Hitler youth style and we all know where that will end up. There s no question in my mind that Trump has to act quickly.
His strategy of hitting military targets with conventional weapons cruise and other missiles and avoiding civilian casualties as much as possible must be correct. He cannot allow Kim to threaten Japan with nuclear attack.
The problems are North Korea could launch a conventional ground attack across the DMZ and a ground war is something Trump cannot politically contemplate not if he wants to stay President. I see avoiding this scenario as Trump's big problem but how? I am glad its not my problem but if anyone can crack it it is the US army but faced with Kim it will be impossible to avoid civilian casualties and the bleeding heart liberal elite will be all over Trump like a rash.
The US will try to defend the South Korean population with sea borne anti-missile rockets but no US soldier should set foot on Korean soil. Supply the South Koreans with all the conventional arms and hardware they ask for but its up to them to use to defend themselves.
If Kim is stupid enough to go nuclear hitting South Korean cities it makes it easy for Trump but I do hope he will not retaliate with nuclear weapons. He can do whatever he wants except that.
Longer term he will have eventually to face up to China and that will require an alliance with Russia Putin and all. The US cannnot tolerate China grabbing a big chunk of the South C hina Sea through its artifical fortified island comstruction programme. All problems ignored by Obama the worst US president imop since Randy Jack Kennnedy.
