Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, August 11, 2017

Most Americans are both paying attention to the news surrounding the nuclear threat from North Korea and worried about the potential for war, according to a new poll from Public Policy Polling, a Democratic polling firm, given exclusively to Axios. ... Sizable majorities in both parties (82% of Democrats, 68% of Republicans) favor exhausting all diplomatic options in order to avoid war, and even bigger majorities (90% of Democrats, 80% of Republicans) support direct talks with North Korea before military action.

The other 18% are smart enough to know Kim Jon Un has an awesome life and is not suicidal.

This fake nuke scare is a desperate attempt to distract the moronic media from the russian story. And of course they're falling for it. Fear of nuclear war gets better ratings than political scandal.

You mean the russian story with no facts? The dems have been whipping this pony for damn near a year now and still zero proof.

YOu're right. If you shove your head in the sand bucket fox news provides you, there's no facts at all from your perspective!

Don't you worry, Sniper. Speeky, TonyR and Zed know everything that's happening, and they've assured me that we're in the process of arresting the culprits right now as we speak. Of course, we were right in the middle of this process two months ago, then last month, too, but just you wait.. Boy oh boy!

This is why we call you people willful ignorants. You have to physically try to not see the proof at this point. The proof began in August 2016 with the news of a trump-tower/Moscow private email server. But F*** reality, right Sniper? Life is much more cozy pretending the president isn't a Russian tool.

Keep drinking that koolaid, buddy.

And as for war with the Norks- screw 'em. The first missile they shoot towards Guam should be the end of their silly little Cult country, and all of its flora and fauna.

Aww is justice to slow for you? I guess we should just call off the investigation if they can't deliver proof in 30 minutes or less.

Watergate took years. I know you want this to go away, but you should just get used to the feeling of supporting a president under investigation for colluding with our enemies. It's going to be a while.

On the other hand, if they weren't finding anything to investigate, it WOULD have been over by now.

Only an idiot would beat their chest over the use of nukes.

As evidenced by Cuckfish beating his chest over using nukes.

I do acknowledge given the current congressional leadership,the likelihood is remote. But if he keeps -------- on McConnell and Ryan, who knowns, maybe if he pokes the bears too often they'll grow a pair and do what's right for the american people.

"NK will blink"

I wouldn't bet on it.

I would put my money on lil Kim firing off those missiles toward Guam.

I give it a week. Two weeks at the most. It is almost too perfect a setup for Kim to resist.

If he fires those missiles it would put Trump in a corner. They don't have to to hit anything.

Kim would love to get Trump (and the USA) into a corner. Kim wouldn't have to do another thing the rest of his life and his people will worship him forever.

And Trump is playing right into Kim's hands.

The only way they could hit Guam would be if they were aiming at Japan.

The whole korean nuke "threat" is a deflection. If people are scared of getting nuked, they're going to be less concerned about trump colluding with the russians.

I predicted this right after the appointment of mueller.

So apparently a nothingburger only deals with President Trump according to Speak's. You better consult Hillery.

FLASHBACK: Clinton Campaign Thought Trump Was Too Weak On North Korea

President Donald Trump, who the Clinton campaign previously said was too weak on North Korea, has delivered a series of tough warnings to Pyongyang over the past week, eliciting strong criticisms from the left for being unnecessarily aggressive and escalatory.

"Donald Trump's statements about North Korea show that he has more interest in making Kim Jong Un like him than backing up our friends and allies in the region," Clinton aide Jake Sullivan told Reuters last June, referencing Trump's willingness to sit down with North Korean leadership and his complaints about American allies in the Asia Pacific not covering the cost of defense.

"This is another reminder that America must elect a president who can confront the threats we face with steadiness and strength," Hillary Clinton said, after the North conducted a fifth nuclear test in September last year.

They've been doing test launches since 1984 but most of them have been since last March.
