The New York Times: Has the following editorial view of the North Korean Crisis, " Tougher sanctions, coupled with Mr. Tillerson’s continued efforts at a diplomatic solution, are the best path to a peaceful end to this conflict. That is what Mr. Trump should also be focused on. Engaging in a war of words with North Korea only makes it harder for both sides to de-escalate. "
Lets Get Real:
This is typical of the US / UK mainstream press and TV, in the past the UBER liberal NYT covered for Stalin, if the NYT editorial board had run US foreign policy the Berlin Wall would be still be up, the Liberals NEVER want to fight for America, they just want to defend the other nation, very much like the BBC at times. Sometimes you have to FIGHT, this is not a post arguing for War with North Korea, quite the reverse, but there are limits, one hopes that NK will back down and not launch missiles at Guam, but what if they DO. Then the Trump Oval would have to do something, otherwise the US will look wean when faced by North Korea, also could US allies trust that the US would come to protect them if the US is seen as weak with North Korea. Think Russia, Iran, you get the idea, sometimes you have to bite the bullet and be aggressive. Democracy has to be protected, otherwise it dies.
