I think Lord Feltersnatch is probably envious of Dear Leader's endowment.

The current flights of B-1 and B-52 aircraft is hopefully similar to the flights Obama sent 5-6 months ago... except with more cow bell - harmless. Soon DJT will make the bold proclamation "I had more cow bell".

Dear Leader won't like this one bit!

I'm not too happy about it either.  All this military escalation is very anxiety producing.

The essential condition for a serious war is an irresponsible idiot on each side.  Which is why the current situation is so awful ; especially as the idiots are intent on proving which is the bigger idiot. -- peregrine

History tells us that starting fights on multiple fronts usually isn't a very good idea.... unless you own Raytheon shares.

Both think the other will "back down". Their egos are at stake, and they have gone too far to humble themselves.

It's being reported, now, that 17,000 elite American troops are training in SK to take his Royal Highness out. It's supposedly "secret".

Just kill Kim ASAP. His being alive only means more deaths and hardship for millions of people. We are all going to die sometime, just a blink in history, so kill him now.

The world and his own people know how bad he is so just eliminate him.

Probably more fake news. Yesterday it was reported that 150,000 Chinese troops were on the border of North Korea. Turned out to be false.

William, so many reasons why that's a bad idea....Don't you think it would set a bad precedent? Also, I'm pretty sure it's against international law to murder a foreign Head of State.

Ignore Kim, all he wants is attention, or send in the Harlem Globetrotters!

Right now.  Today.  Kim Jong-un, Putin, Assad, Trump.  I don't even know what to say except that those four names in the same sentence is not making me feel all warm and fuzzy.

South Korea and the U.S. have annual war games, which is not a secret. And it's no secret that precision attack drone flights and simulated assassination squad practices have taken place.
US Sends Drones, Assassination Squad to South Korea. Massive “War Games” Directed against DPRK UnderwayThere is an amazing tool you can use to find this information. It's called Google (or your favorite search engine.)

There are many amazing tools you can use to evaluate sources, too. One of my favorites is RationalWiki, not because it is serious and unbiased, but because it is the opposite. 

Here is what they have to say about the site you linked to, Globalresearch, which I assume you linked to because no reputable news sources are reporting on this in quite the same way:



Globalresearch is an anti-"Western" website that can't distinguish between serious analysis and discreditable junk — and so publishes both. It's basically the moonbat equivalent to Infowars or WND.

While some of GlobalResearch's articles discuss legitimate humanitarian concerns, its view of scienceeconomics, and geopolitics is conspiracist — if something goes wrong, the Jews West didit! The site has long been a crank magnet: If you disagree with "Western" sources on 9/11, or HAARP, or vaccines, or H1N1, or climate change, or anything published by the "mainstream" media, then GlobalResearch is guaranteed to have a page you will love.

The website (under the domain names globalresearch.ca(link), .org(link), and .com(link)) is run by the Montreal-based non-profit The Centre for Research on Globalisation (CRG) founded by Michel Chossudovsky,[2][3] a former professor of economics at the University of Ottawa, Canada.[4]

Whenever someone makes a remarkable claim and cites GlobalResearch, they are almost certainly wrong.

I knew that about that site, but sometimes they have insights into issues that no other source will publish because they aren't considered mainstream acceptable or patriotic enough. I'm a big fan of rationality, but sometimes it's overrated...

I'm so sad about Otto Warmbier.   Such cruelty.  Heartbreaking.

After reading about it today, anger was my first emotion. Why such severe punishment for a such a minor offense? I can't wait until the regime crashes and burns. I will celebrate.

On the other hand, I was a little annoyed with the father putting the blame on Obama. When in other countries, you are subject to their laws. Why someone would travel to a country like NK is beyond me.
