North Korea was a bigger threat than the Middle East this whole time and now it’s too late.

    Here we go again with more nuclear tests from North Korea. Is this **** harmful for the planet? Maybe it causes hurricanes. Who the **** knows? But this is bull **** and it just seems like we missed our shot to handle this situation and all Trump did when maybe we still could do something was become friends with his sorry ass.

    Trump didn't do anything because Gen Milley probably told the N Koreans to go ahead with their test and if Trump planned to attack he would warn them in advance. And now Milley works for Biden.

    That's not true.

    Trump has completely neutralized Kim.

    Trump says North Korea is not a threat anymore post summit

    Kim did the same thing at the end of Obamas presidency... Until Trump put the boot down. He is obviously testing Biden. Will Biden be able to put a stop to it as well or is he too weak?

    I bet Kim is hoping to get a nice paycheck from Biden by acting out and then promising to behave for let's say 80 billion? Biden is a fool and will pay him off, and Kim knows it.

    An object lesson for the next Republican president (sorry Dems, there WILL be one), first day in office sweep out every, and I mean EVERY holdover from the previous administration the law allows.

    North Korea conducted at least 9 nuclear missile tests in 2019 during Dirty Donalds presidency.

    Handle what situation? These were missile tests, not nuclear tests. These were two countries projecting power like the U.S. does better than anybody. Neither the middle east nor North Korea are really a danger to the U.S. The middle east doesn't have what it takes to attack the U.S. and North Korea understands what would happen to them if they were to try to attack the U.S. They could try to invade South Korea but I wouldn't suggest that the U.S. would be in any danger. The problem is that the U.S. insists on being a planetary police force and has faced a lot of consequences because of it. That is the more important problem. Because we have a huge military isn't a reason to use it for anything other defense and power projection.

    Put the boot down? He had a summit where they became friends and stepped into their country.

    Correct. There has not been a successful attempt at negotiating with NK ever. There is no point in even considering it. We have two choices. We can leave NK alone or go to war. We have decided to leave them alone.

    It seems blowing up their own test site was more of the reason they stopped for a little while than anything Trump did

    North Korea tested missiles including intercontinental ballistic missiles 35 days between 2/10/17 and 3/29/20. Some of those days there were more than one missile tested. Eighteen of those days were in 2017 and thirteen of those days occurred in 2019.
    Those are the facts draw whatever conclusion you will.
