...well, ratings for the 24-hour news channels for one thing. Distracting us from Special Prosecutor Bob Mueller’s investigation of trump is another. The media notwithstanding, there will be no hot war with N. Korea. What’s going on is an escalation of bullshit between two world leaders who are simply full of it. In fact, there are back channel negotiations going on.
The risk is greatest for N. Korea. It would be quite simple for trump to destroy it if he doesn’t mind sacrificing the millions of our allies in the South. “Kimmy Junkyard” Un could not destroy America no matter what he says. He’s doing the same thing trump’s doing, distracting his people, only in his case, from the fact they are starving to death.
