In a simple move to give North Korea's Kim a little heads up, Trump drops the MOAB on Isis tunnels and bunkers in Afghanistan. Takes no credit for ordering it saying he gave the military full authority to do what was needed.

The MSM practically gushes in excitement talking about Trump's second bold move in a week.

This decision keeps another campaign promise which was to bomb the s out of Isis.

Trump has moved a Naval taskforce to North Korean waters in advance of North Korea's April 15 Founder's Birthday anticipating some kind of weapon test. China has hinted it make take action for the first time, if Kim does something provocative. This of course is a major victory for Trumpas he most likely negotiated this with Xi from China when they had dinner earlier in the week as Trump bombed Syria.

So far no weapon testing today from lil' Kim.

But today its so tense today, between North Korea, China and the US that a false newspaper headline that happened in China, could have started a war.

Trump's approval rating is back to 50%.

North Korea did launch a missile yesterday. However it did not go far and blew up. There are hints that the US hacked the missile and caused it to blow up. Of course, the hints could have been started by the CIA just to mess with North Korea's mind and cause them to spin their wheels in the wrong direction. Who knows.

Mike Pence visited the demilitarized zone yesterday as well.

No one has lost an aircraft carrier. Perhaps if you listened to other news outlets you would get a better picture of how strategic naval maneuvers work.

First Trump did not say he was sending any ships into North Korean waters, that would be a definite aggressive act that could outright provoke North Korea. Trump simply sent out a message, that evidently sunk in with the short, fat crazy guy, that he was fully prepared to move in if there was a need. The order to move closer to North Korea was a two week time frame. The maneuvers are a coordinated effort between the US, South Korea, and Japan. basically forming a stand by in the event North Korea does something stupid.
The MSM is so ready to try to play "gotcha" with Trump that they don't take time to do any research, they just throw out uninformed stories regarding anything that see as contradictory to what he says. They still can't stand the fact that Trump takes his message directly to the people rather than give them information. Trump does not have to inform the press of anything regarding military exercises. Where were the inquiring minds when BHO had military exercises here in Texas? Were there reports of which direction they moved?

Will the tax money we pay for bogus/leftist slanted news by way of NPR be withheld, now that Trump is President?

It should be, we should not have to subsidize any media outlets. If they can't survive on their own, good riddance.

That's good but I also think of the line from Hunt For Red October: "Andre, you mean you lost another submarine?"

Of course you "may" disagree with me but is that wise? :nono:

Actually, there is no military option. See Dr Witlak's comments:

Witlak point's out the need for a deal like we have with Iran which Trump seems to be keeping:

I guess you never tire of occasionally stopping by to troll this thread with liberal & progressive talking points/links.
