15. No Joking Matter, Actually

This has happened for a reason and it is not reassuring - not in the least.

Trump came into office flapping his jaw and North Korea responded. Trump then escalated with his "fire and fury" comments and North Korea has responded with their first hydrogen bomb test, displayed a photo showing a hydrogen warhead sized to fit on top of a rocket and fired 2 long range ICBM missiles over Japan. So much for drawing that line in the sand. But I don't think anybody is surprised at the rapid escalation with North Korea.

The problem is that I don't see any cooler heads that can turn this around and so far only one side is bluffing and bluffing and bluffing. When you get to this point the issue becomes saving face and human ego so how can cooler heads penetrate such a dilemma. Trump is declaring victory saying the sanctions are working but, of course, offers no evidence. That will not be well received in North Korea - they will respond. Then what?
