Doing that even once ought to get a “journalist” booted out of the profession.
i'm honestly worried about the situation in north korea. not becuz of any scare tactics from parry (i haven't read any of his stuff on that) or any other journalist. trump has made it repeatedly clear what his solution is, and it isn't diplomatic. i recall about a month ago that adm james stravidis said when gauging the difference between trump's bully, blustering cocque-slinging comments and any reality of impending war, he said to watch actions and the group deployments. in the space of a week last week, two more carrier attack groups were sent to join the one already there.
trump also amended the executive order under bush's terrorist act to be able to call into service retired and reserve military.
then today, mcmaster said NK might be classified as a terrorist nation, based on kim's assassination of his brother.... which would, of course, continue to make it easier to bypass congressional approval by relying on that same bush era terrorism rule.
these actions are facts. how i interpret them is opinion. mine.
just sayin. i am not at all comfortable with these actions.
and i am not a scaremonger or a paranoid fucquer. this would be the biggest thing i would love to be proven wrong about.
but i think it smells to high heaven. i should rest assured that trump, in his infinite wisdom and political savvy, will fix this powder keg on his asian tour. (something tells me the carrier attack groups won't leave when he does, though.)
p.s. yeah, i have no problem discussing the idea that trump would start a war solely as... diversion. more opinion. mine.
