    I guess there are "none"; Everyone is asking what are the policies for: Iraq, Syria, Israel. Palestinians, N. Korea, Iran, Quatar, Afghanistan, Yemen, China, you name it. Tillersons department has no people; neither does he know what to do.

    Then we have Jared Kussner who was sent to the middle east to negotiate an "peace plan"; he's barely there and had already an huge fight with Abbas ( surprised? if you sent an "Jew")

    Sorry, if you see, everything Trump touches goes to hell, then even Jesus can't fix it, let alone Pence. In Europe there is now a movement to get NATO out of all these US wars. Even right now they slowed down on their actions in Syria and Iraq

    He's (Trumps) got way too many cabinet posts unmanned, how can he develop or have a foreign policy with that large of a void? One source says he has 2000 cabinet positions unfilled, you need experienced diplomats to engage with all those hot spots around the globe, part of his problem is that nobody want's to work with or for him, except his family of elites.

    The worst part is still to come; he's meeting Putin next week. According to the news there is no "policy" nor an "agenda",which makes things even more dangerous; you can't let an "blabbermouth" ego tripper just being "on his own" without at least an animal tamer. So I'm afraid he will only talk about his "loans/whitewashing" deal and asks that Putin please do not "blackmail" him about the "tapes" of his orgy in Moscow. How can this country sent this idiot on an foreign trip again, after the disaster last time in Europe?

    Putin is smarter than Trump and knows all he needs to do is feed Trump's ego and let Trump know they can do business together after he leaves office. Putin: "Wouldn't be fun to make 100 billion together, think about it my friend, you could be the richest man in the world someday. Nobody desires it more than you!"

    If Trump thinks America is so great, why did he marry a foreigner?

    This weekend he was "bored" I guess,because not only all the nasty "tweets" but he called just about the whole world: Japan, S. Korea, China, Germany, France etc. I think he has the idea that he is "king" of the whole world and runs the whole world.

    He's an mental case but does not know it. I guess the world leaders will think : Oh shit, there is the "asshole" on the phone again; who the hell he thinks he is?

    The latest about foreign policies; today the US is again pushing the panic button because N.Korea launched another missile.

    On TV they claim it could be an intercontinental one; but no one knows.

    The stupid hype in this country may lead to another war, like we don't have already enough of those.

    But yeah we are the only country who "screams", while the Chinese, S.Korean. Japan etc. keep their "cool".

    I guess our "dumb ass" leader likes to "bully" his way into another war, because he does not understand on how to play the game. N.Korea knows how to provoke an Trump type and laughs like hell that it works so super with him.

    A nuclear attack on Alaska...is about as far as a NK missile range could go, what's in Alaska besides wildlife, trees, permafrost, gold, and oil? Alaska oil wells peaked out years ago, today, only 600,000 barrels are pumped out.

    aoga.org/facts-and-figures

    One nuclear attack (one missile-warhead) from NK on Alaska would make some of the state uninhabitable.

    A simplistic view of the Korean conflict/war is that the U.S. lost that war/conflict because of involvement of China and the Soviet Union. The Soviet Union flew covert missions for their ally China.

    The U.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korean_WarS. lost the NK conflict/war because of China, and the Soviet Union.

    "The Korean War (in South Korean Hangul: 한국전쟁; Hanja: 韓國戰爭; RR: Hanguk Jeonjaeng, "Korean War"; in North Korean Chosŏn'gŭl: 조국해방전쟁; Hancha: 祖國解放戰爭; MR: Choguk haebang chǒnjaeng, "Fatherland Liberation War"; 25 June 1950 – 27 July 1953)[36][b][38] began when North Korea invaded South Korea.[39][40] The United Nations, with the United States as the principal force, came to the aid of South Korea. China came to the aid of North Korea, and the Soviet Union gave some assistance.

    If the manchild thinks that he is going to influence China into reining in NK, he might be very mistaken. There aren't too many countries who have any respect for the manchild, since he acts like a juvenile delinquent most of the time, he has yet to earn their respect. As we have witnessed, the manchild doesn't act very presidential, but his base loves him. If the U.S. gets dragged into a war/conflict and many filled body bags come back, his voters will understand and realize that they elected the wrong person for the job.

    Dock, it is all quite simple; we are the only country in the world who always threatens with war. All other countries have leaders who have only interest in their own countries and don't stomp all around the world as if they 'own" it. It is time the US concentrates on the mess at "home" without meddling all over the world and start wars. Right now we are absolutely no example for the world, far from it. Let China, Japan, S.Korea deal with it. As long as N.Korea does not start an war let them play with their toys. If we don't provoke them as we do now, nothing will happen. DON'T GIVE THEM THE EXCUSE TO START AN WAR WITH US that should be the message here. Thus don't provoke with ships or planes etc. just start studying on how healthcare works in other parts of the world; that is an better exercise.

    Guess what; we seem to be the only enemy N.Korea is focusing on, because we are the stupid one's who provoke them.

    By the way; if I see on TV the launch picture, then I have the impression that we are being fooled in an big way. The projectile is as slim as an pencil; so how much fuel can you get in that thing? Our ICBM's are "fat" ladies in order to make the range. My feeling is that the Trump gang (fake news) hypes this up as an diversion tactic. Sorry what they did show on TV is not an ICBM, but an short range missile.

    Dutch, News is profit driven. Hard to tell what you might hear or see. They are all competing for the scoop.

    Another part of the story is that it looks like an repeat of what happened with Iraq; remember the "weapons of mass destruction" which were never there? The same here; why does China and Russia does not get as upset, like the US? Very simple; someone is supplying the "parts" and engineering as well tooling to make these rockets. (rocket engines are not very simple and made of special materials) The supplier knows exactly what they deliver; if it is China or Russia or the "blackmarket"? they will make sure that they will not be harmed. Thus they only supply the stuff for short/medium range, as well only for to "toy" with. On the parades they have; who says that the missiles shown all have engines or interior guts? Thus America don't fall into this trap again as you did with Iraq. Amen

    Money spent for defense as part of foreign policy is sorely wasted. The USS Fitzgerald cost about 1 1/2 billion dollars. It was taken out of service by a large, slow moving, slow turning container ship. Nothing in the world should be able to run into it. Courts martial and incarceration are looming. Having a budget with no good plan except to get more money to spend is pointless and dangerous. Passive policies that create goodwill (peace corp) are expected to be run by volunteers. Active polices of threats of harm and violence have unlimited budgets .

    Trump will threaten to launch nuclear weapons launch against NK, and he will issue orders to start the DEFCOM process. This will prompt China to invade and take control of NK, or China will threaten to launch their Nuclear weapons against the US. Trump will play chicken with the Chinese, tweeting "I am not afraid of slanty eye chinks" indicating he is willing to launch weapons against both China and NK.

    Trump will have very few supporters at home or around the world during the showdown. He's like to pre-emptively launch a nuclear attack without consulting wiser people. It will be a day, just like any other day, and we'll hear Trump has just issue orders to launched a dozen ICBMs at NK and\or China.
