Who's responsible for the gas attack in Syria? Who will make the first move between Trump and NK? Will China get involved? How effective was the 'mother of all bombs' on the ISIS tunnels in Afghanistan? What will come of the human rights violation in Chechnya?

WWIII seems imminent.

The fact that both the States and North Korea are led by petulant man-children with access to nuclear weapons doesn't fill exactly fill one with confidence.

Yep.

Though the failed missile launch (again!) reminded me that NK is all bark and no bite.

Government forces most likely, but I suppose it hasn't been established beyond a reasonable doubt. Not via any publicly-released information anyway.

Lightly damaging the airbase with Tomahawks was just a bit of dick-waving to distract from Trump's domestic political difficulties.

The stronger party is more likely to do so. Again, for domestic political consumption moreso than anything else.

If the US bombs the Nork's missile sites? Unlikely. If it gets to the point of US troops marching through Pyongyang, then it's a different story.

Smoked a few bastards, but there's more where that came from. Besides, the big issue in Afghanistan remains the Taliban.

Quote :

I presume you're referring to the recent reports of homosexual men being targeted? Nothing, given that Kadyrov has been given free rein to do as he wishes in his fiefdom, lest there be another uprising.

Doesn't stop the useful idiots in the West believing Putin is an anti-Islam crusader, despite him being OK with an entire Sharia-adhering republic within Russia just so long as he and Kadyrov can continue their looting unabated.

nevermind WW3 .........Wheeee there's going to be another chance for us Brits to votes and prove what idiots we can be collectively.........apparently its all in the name of stability assuming there's going to be anything left to stabalise of course!

Much like the US we seem to have the most dreadful and incompetent shower of candidates in our long history, a case of heads we all lose, tails we all lose, coin lands on edge we all lose, coin unexpectedly self destructs we all lose.....

Reliable as always, CJB.

I do think the US will try to find a way to intercept the gay camps, although not much has been said about them since the first reports. And I do feel as though NK and the US both want to engage in war, but don't want to be held accountable for starting it.

It is a consolation. I might get an audition for that.

Now the Nork's foreign ministry has threatened to nuke Australia.

I think they're more likely to catapult kimchi at us as it stands.

Hoping it's just another example of NK posturing and sabre-rattling, like so many times in the past.

If there's been a worse press conference in the history of press conferences, I don't recall it.

You've got to be a monumental screw up to make Trump look sympathetic. Lisa Bloom was pathetic...could not control her client and appeared to have not prepped Kathy at all. Looked like she was actually having a full-on, nuclear-nervous breakdown in front of a live audience.

Her comments were ageist, sexist and racist. No responsibility accepted. Kathy is a bully who apparently has very thin skin herself. Now she knows how it feels.

Trump on NK: "they will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen."




As far as I know, NK is said to have nuclear weapons barely in the double figures, whereas America has something like a 1000 (haven't seen the stats recently, so this could be out. Not to mention the stats I saw might not have been particularly accurate). If this is true, tell me again why these muppets insist on comparing and measuring dicks?

My hope is that, deep down, NK surely know that any attack they launch would see the US reduce them to a smoking crater in no time at all.

As you say FM, a dick-measuring contest between 2 fucking gobshites.

Assuming Trump wasn't President, what would any other US Leader do any differently in this same scenario with Kim Jong Un who shows absolutely zero interest in any diplomatic resolution and continues to launch missiles in spite of a world demand NOT to do so? I had absolutely zero confidence in Obama, who did fucked up things like give Iran $400m in the dead of night just before he departed office. And Hellary is simply a disaster...

Seems like Trump haters hold the man in low esteem no matter what he does.  sarcasm

Some of Trump's policies I like and some I don't like. I'm probably more sympathetic toward him than most I know, but I wouldn't call myself a firm supporter. There just has to be a more diplomatic, sensible or mature way to deal with NK. 

But I suppose he's doing his best in what is probably a mere orchestration from a seemingly silent Putin.

The diplomacy is not returned by NK. Its nuclear program was never disarmed in spite of deals which only benefitted the leadership's pockets.

I just find his bullish, reactionary rhetoric a worry is all. Still, I guess the main thing is that so far it's just a war of words (and will hopefully remain so).

Pretty much. Kimbo is a fat idiot, but I can't imagine him wanting to see the end of his ill-gotten dynasty.
