Mixed reviews for Bozo's threats to NK

Remember the MOAB and his quick strike in Syria?

But bear all this in mind.

Why it could take months for the US to get ready for war with North Korea

Recalling it took months for the military to get ready for Bush Pere's invasion of Iraq.

And then it took Schwarzkopf about a week to completely crush Saddam's forces, despite constant predictions in the left wing media that his army would die in the desert at the hands of the third or fourth greatest military force in the entire world (Saddam's, that is).

It is interesting that Breitbart reports Bozo's remarks, but not on their front page, and has otherwise no comment on them.

Utter radio silence.

Those reviews:

‘God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong Un,’ evangelical adviser says

Texas megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress, one of President Trump’s evangelical advisers who preached the morning of his inauguration, has released a statement saying the president has the moral authority to take out North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

“When it comes to how we should deal with evil doers, the Bible, in the book of Romans, is very clear: God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary — including war — to stop evil,” Jeffress said. 

“In the case of North Korea, God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong Un.”

Lawmakers slam Trump's 'fire and fury' toward North Korea

President Donald Trump faced criticism from lawmakers in both parties on Tuesday after warning that North Korea would "face fire and fury like the world has never seen" if Pyongyang keeps threatening the United States.

. . . .

Trump issued his warning to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday during a photo op at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen... he has been very threatening beyond a normal state. They will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before," he said.

. . . .

But Democrats slammed Trump for a reaction they charged was "bombastic" and "unhinged."

"President Trump is not helping the situation with his bombastic comments," California Sen. Dianne Feinstein said in a statement.

New York Rep. Eliot Engel, the top Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said Trump had undermined US credibility "by drawing an absurd red line."

"Make no mistake: North Korea is a real threat, but the President's unhinged reaction suggests he might consider using American nuclear weapons in response to a nasty comment from a North Korean despot," Engel said.

And Maryland Sen. Ben Cardin, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, compared Trump's comments to rhetoric that often comes out of Pyongyang.

"President Trump's comments were not helpful and once again show that he lacks the temperament and judgment to deal with the serious crisis the United States confronts," Cardin said. 

"We should not be engaging in the same kind of bluster and provocative statements as North Korea about nuclear war."

Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York similarly called out Trump's comments -- referring to them as "reckless."

"We need to be firm and deliberate with North Korea, but reckless rhetoric is not a strategy to keep America safe," Schumer said in a statement issued Tuesday.

Tillerson dials back rhetoric after Trump's North Korea 'fire and fury' threats

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has sought to allay fears of a military confrontation with North Korea after President Donald Trump warned he could unleash "fire and fury" on the pariah state.

Tillerson defended Trump's comments but said there was no sign that the threat level from North Korea had changed and that Americans should "sleep well at night."

Graham was totally on board for Trump and McCain's only criticism was that he feared Trump was not really prepared to pull the trigger.
