Trump threats are toothless - but endanger us all

Rep. John Conyers holds a news conference on H.R.1962 the 'Free Flow of Information Act of 2013'

Gore said that Trump "inherited a very risky situation" from previous world leaders and so should not be blamed entirely for the escalation, which most recently saw North Korea promising a plan to strike the USA territory of Guam within days.

The developments with North Korea have occurred while Congress has largely deserted Washington for its month-long August recess, leaving the President's comments to stand for themselves without much chance for congressional leaders to weigh in or potentially moderate his rhetoric.

What does he mean by "fire and fury"?

His declaration, in between rounds of golf, that any North Korean "threats" would be met with "fire and fury. the likes of which this world has never seen before" was dangerously imprecise. Just yesterday, he actually thanked President Vladimir Putin for demanding the expulsions of US diplomats from Russian Federation. "Behind this air attack will follow sea and land forces in such numbers and power as which they have not yet seen". -North Korean relations and Americans imprisoned in North Korea, the source said.

The speaker of the Guam Legislature says he hopes the island can defend itself in the event of an attack from North Korea.

I have a lot of confidence in our ability to maintain the safety of our people. Perhaps, but senior administration officials recognize that an armed conflict on the peninsula would be, in the words of Secretary of Defense James Mattis, "tragic on an unbelievable scale".

"I think right now they see the Korean dilemma as just part of the whole insane Trump presidency. and so probably most people just think the North Koreans are reacting to Trump's tweets. and they don't see it in the context of the last 25 years of foreign policy towards the North Koreans". And now is the time for the global community, through USA leadership, to find a way so that we can have diplomacy work in North Korea. We need to get - it's going to be tested quickly over the course of literally weeks as to whether or not China's serious.

Light plane flips on landing in Queensland
Around 2 p.m., deputies said a woman in the plane walked nearly a mile away and flagged down a passing vehicle . Emergency services say the plane stalled and then flipped on the runway as it landed.

I think it's going to be very counterproductive. "I don't think they undercut the United States on the world stage".

So it's - North Koreans, they do speak a different language than what we're - and Kim Jong Un does speak a different language than what we're used to here in the United States.

Thinking about limited nuclear war, while unrealistic, is evidence the planners are starting to get really scared about an all-out nuclear war, which is just what you want them to be. As far as the president's words go, it's important for the North Koreans to know that all options are on the table for us and to re-engage with the global community to change their ways in the best interest not just of Kim Jong Un, but also of his regime and his people.

"You can't survive on $7.25", she said.

Risch's comments come after intelligence reports suggest the country could be preparing to launch a missile towards the U.S. Territory of Guam. Humphrey also said that Trump is "impaired by a seriously sick psyche", and that "his sick mind and reckless conduct could consume the lives of millions".

And the president's comments yesterday and today have made that more hard. "I'm sure everything will work out fine".
