Tis a delicate balancing act at the minute. :o
Maybe nothing?

Unless something like the movie Syriana happens.


All Trumps talk , seems to me like more effort not to do anything that drop a few bombs.

As long as it kicks off after I have gone on holiday and left the region though.

Look up the movie plot of Syriana!

Oh, BTW, a prayer group has been started in Philippines to stop NKor Missile launches

After all they fear the missile to Guam may land in Philippines..

Since, NKor has shown it can launch missiles but never shown how good their targeting is :(

“He is not proud of his mother’s humble beginnings,” said the novelist and poet Kevin MacNeil, who lives on the Isle of Lewis. “It is hard to understand how in a single generation the values of altruism, togetherness and sheer human decency were lost. Selflessness became selfishness. A supportive sense of community became a vain-glorious arrogance.”

Trump calls for some 'good old global warming' as US experiences bad weather


US president again conflates weather with climate to pour scepticism on climate change and criticise the Paris agreement


He once dismissed it as a “hoax” created by the Chinese to destroy American jobs, but right now Donald Trump is pining for some of that “good old global warming”.

While on holiday in Florida on Thursday, the US president wondered whether global warming might not be such a problem after all.

As severe cold and record amounts of snow sweep across the US east coast, Trump wrote on Twitter that the country “could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries, was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against”.

“Bundle up!” he added.

No, it is the US & its military that is begging for war (again).

The DPRK saw what happened to Saddam after he gave up his nuclear ambitions.
They also saw what happened to Gaddafi after he gave up his nuclear ambitions.
The DPRK is not going to go down that path.

The DPRK is not stupid.
They would not initiate using their weapons.
A threat becomes powerless once used.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/01/03/steve-bannon-calls-donald-trumps-son-unpatriotic-treasonous/

Donald Trump says Steve Bannon has 'lost his mind' after former aide attacks president's son for 'treasonous' meeting


Donald Trump has publicly disowned Steve Bannon as the pair fell out spectacularly over a new book revealing embarrassing details about the White House.

The US president said Mr Bannon, who ran Mr Trump’s election campaign and advised him in office, “has nothing to do with me or my presidency”.

Mr Trump claimed his former chief strategist had “lost his mind” and “rarely” met him one-on-one before leaving the White House last August.

The president also accused Mr Bannon of leaking “false information” to “make himself seem far more important than he was”.


All not well in the Trump Camp!
