    Trump made the following stupid statement: If China is not doing anything about N.Korea; then we will do that.

    I've never seen an more dangerous, idiotic statement ever!!! Guess what, N.Korea is their "neighbor"; not ours. If Trump wants war; then the whole world will hate us and it will cost us dearly, Sorry this is beyond crazy!!!

    Trump doesn't want real war. He wants to kick the ass of crazy leader with impoverished citizens. One that can't fight back in any way. He will show his sheep how fearless he is against a third world country. Big tough ignorant bigot with a zillion dollar military isn't afraid of anyone. Unless they can fight back.

    China will gently inform him that he should leave NK alone from a saber-rattling standpoint.

    He is inviting the China head to Mar-a-Lago (again an 3 million dollar "outing"; the bill for that is now just about $20 million total). Anyway some nuthead on MSNBC said he has to be very tough on China and not be nice at all. I guess this person is forgetting that we left the world stage by electing Trump. This country has no longer an coherent "foreign" police, let alone the right people to carry this out. I doubt very much that Trump dares to state to the China president, what he stated in his "tweet", that if China does not take action on N.Korea; then Trump will. He will likely act as he did when he visited the Mexican president or the visit of the Egyptian one. I bet nothing will come out of this meeting, which will change things. China is much smarter than our new "banana republic" leaders.

    I can envision a soft-spoken Chinese man about 5ft tall, 140lbs, saying very quietly with 100% conviction "China does not accept any of your proposals. We do not believe you have the wisdom to proceed. China will take responsibility to contain NK". Then walk away leaving Trump standing alone.

    China is akin to 100 adult male elephants. They are big enough, powerful enough, that they don't get pushed around. It possible they move in one direction or another, but only if it is in their self-interest to do so. Threats are like swatting at flies with their tail that is has the impact of a huge bullwhip.

    Trumpie is in for a very rude awakening when he discovers the Chinese really consider him to be the fool that he is.

    Yes P.R. absolutely correct; He forgets China is now number "one" not the new "banana republic" called the US.

    China is going to love this one, having US nuclear weapon parked in their backyard. It no different when Russia tried to put nuclear missing in Cuba.

    Does Trump really think he can bully China by threating NK?

    Yes, this is the most stupid option ever. Remember when the Cuban missile crisis was here? the Russians wanted to plant these in Cuba, the US went wild. Thus in this case China will absolutely not tolerate our nukes in their "backyard". Wake up America; China is number one, not us. Forget all the "saber rattling" until now it got us only more wars and enemy's. Let China deal with it , not us. Forget the arrogance of Trump; it will only get us deeper into the shit, which he absolutely don't understand.

    As of this evening, US warships have headed to the north china sea. Sure hope this was agreed upon during china recent visit. You can see Trump issuing orders during a TV commercial break: "Park those ships a quarter mile off the NK shore, and and demand they surrender"

    If not agreed upon by the Chinese, Trump could be playing a massive game of chicken with China using NK as a pawn. And the last thing the world wants is the two juvenile leaders trading insults when they both can launch nuclear weapon (china on behalf of NK) just to test out who has the better nuclear bunker. Trump tweets something like: "Just launch missles, headed downstairs to go bowling and watch the fireworks on my 4K TV. Maybe Fuck Kellyann...haha, JK! "

    Yes,this is the most stupid thing you can do; again PROVOKE an country. This will only increase the tensions; not lessen them. I saw last night the show of Antony Bourdain in China; one thing struck me; the Chinese did modernize their country in an great way; guess why? They said : "we don't start any wars, like you do, so there is plenty of money for infrastructure and education etc."

    Sending these warships is asking for it. Sorry there is no policy nor strategy at all ; only pure American bully stupidity.

    I doubt if the Chinese recommended such, because they are still mad that our ships/fighters came close to the "islands" they built in the South China Sea

    Thus again an stupid brainless Trump adventure like in Yemen.

    This Trump guy is so terrible naive, it is pathetic. North Korea got its wish; this is exactly what they wanted to drag the US into their region; so if war breaks out,then they can blame us for it. Brainless indeed.

    I also like to add that the options of Trump also included to place "nukes" in S. Korea,or have the option to kill Um Yung.

    Neither option will work; since S.Korea does not want nukes on their soil. Also killing the N.K president is against our Constitution as well international law. ( we've done that before in Libya with an huge success , for sure!)

    China has clearly stated that they will not get involved whatever America does. Except the consequences are totally the US problem and if "refugees" of N.K. enter China because of US actions the "cost" and consequences will be for the US.

    I'm very afraid this thing as well Syria gets out of hand ,because of the "idiot" president and his "idiot" cronies have no clue about the world we live in. They think they can fix the world with "weapons" only. Not "brains"

    Hey Dutch, have you forgotten that Trump is the proverbial provoker in chief? The man is a big mouth and a very, very bad thought process or brain, poor thinking ability.

    Yes I was right N.Korea is mad that we sent battle ships, so "PROVOKING" them got the result as I expected; the total stupidity of Trump is pathetic; he has no clue about the "mind" of "dictators" elsewhere while he wants to become one. If goes on like this it will be "war". NEVER PROVOKE AN ENEMY, then you are asking for it. Obama was smart not him.

    While watching the NBC news today, they reported that gas prices surged 10 cents a gallon since Trump's Syria bombing, I think they mentioned oil prices went up too.

    This man is scaring the shit out of me, it's like he want's to start a war with either the Russians or N. Korea. Very dangerous. The bad part of this is that some republicans jumped on the Trump ship defending him.
