The orange shit-gibbon is betting heavily that North Korea will be forced to "back down". He is blindly walking into a disaster of epic proportions and no one in his ill-prepared and criminally under-qualified "administration" is able to talk him off the ledge.

This is going to end in the deaths of potentially MILLIONS of people in the Korean Peninsula if some adults do not step in and corral Trump's enormous fucking ego...

He WANTS to deploy nuclear weapons.
He WANTS to be in the history books as a "tough guy"...
He is incapable of admitting mistakes and he has already said "if China doesn't make North Korea back down the US will"...

Let me say this...the LAST place on Earth you want anyone that you care about at all these days is Seoul South Korea. I would not go there all the money in the world these days.

on this, besides act tough. I suspect not.

Because the consequences of any military action range from very very bad to freaking apocalyptic.
