    Perhaps not many are aware, the United States is STILL at WAR with North Korea. The cessation of hostilities in the mid-'50s consisted of a Truce, not an acknowledgement of surrender.

    Thus, as these new hostilities heat up, return to war may be easier than it would have been otherwise.

    Just thought ya ought to know......Frank

    Well, this serious situation, living in Hawaii, I'm watching the news with an eagle ear, these days, leaves me with a distasteful feeling in my stomach that Trump, is the way he is and is handling it the way he is. Our House of Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has made a petition which I've signed that America should enter in a diplomatic way or talks with N. Korea, so at Congress they are on it. Tulsi Gabbard is on twitter and facebook, so anyone wanting to sign the petition here it is:
    http://aloha.votetulsi.com/page/s/north-korea

    It's so disconcerting to say the least what these 2, so called leaders of nations, does on international level! I believe N. Korea, has broken a lot of laws or/and treaties internationally and the U. N. is on it too, as this article says:
    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/29/world/asia/north-korea-japan-missile-us.html

    With a leader like N. Korea's diplomacy is the best for no one wants war and living in Hawaii, I don't want any missiles aiming at us or anyone else too! It's like a child having a grenade in your community, what N. Korea is, but how to handle this child with a grenade in your community, is another story. You could blast in the missiles in the air as it is over N. Korea, but it's devastating to know what those missiles will do to people, period. God help and protect us all from N. Korea, amen. Thank you God in the name of Christ.

    No, I didn't know this Frank, but I will take your word for it because whether it started long ago or just recently...in my opinion it sure doesn't seem to be headed for peace instead of war. :(

    It's definitely stressful but if Obama was still in Office or if Hillary was our President....they would have just handed America over to North Korea in my opinion. After all Obama pretty much in my opinion "handed over" the stuff to Nuke America with.

    The biggest problem we only hear the American propaganda side. North Korea never surrender in the 50s even after the US bombed them into the stone age killing 1/3 of their population. In a few years they have come to where they are now with the Americans still having war games on their door step. You can not blame them from being a little paranoid. The US got into South Korea because not that they concurred it but because Japan surrender to them and Korea was a Japanese possession.

    Gosh I guess I'm going to have to go do some researching on this one. I never was interested in war and I really don't want to be now. But when reality is staring one in the face you can either bury your head in the sand or learn all you can about the enemy so hopefully you can live through the battle.

    Be careful using that word, Babs! Someone will determine it somehow has a tinge of profanity attached to it's definition. ;)

    Well, according to the news no they tried during their elected time to talk with N. Korea, and gave sanctions upon them. I dislike sanctions, for as the news shows pushing someone in the corner is just dangerous. Now we lost our bargaining chip of being consumers valuable alive, but the U. N. is on it, dislike show downs for it eggs on war. War is something of a very dangerous outcome of a showdown, unnecessary if diplomacy is used. Our elected Rep. Gabbard, is trying to bring about more diplomacy towards, N. Korea. I don't know their culture or language, just know a few food names, lol like kim chee, so I'm not too worried about N. Korea at all. Sanctions never worked, for like any other country we got the same problems, just that we can't seem to communicate, for sanctions seem to be a very adolescent way of handling the problem. America is just one country in the world, and we are like everyone else just human and trying our best to live happily. N. Korea, was pushed to the brink, for every country needs to export and import, but sanctions placed upon them has pushed to build nuclear weapons to use against those who sanction and take away their necessities of import and export, so I believe a better way to solve the problems of the world is necessary, not sanctioning. No country is the know all and see all, one, to punish...we should not be the country that all this to shoulder too...though America is a very compassionate country, and stand up for all civil rights, we should not be the one to punish. I don't want a target on my back, always, so why not let everyone go back to the peace table, begin talks and get down to what the world's future needs, peace, more import and export, and remember we are valuable living consumers to all not sanctioning. You see, bringing people to the peace table and ending the Korean War too is important, not what Trump is doing confrontation, very dangerous. Many things for decades has been going on, not just since we could understand world news, see, so bringing them to the peace table and more discussions to keep peace at the center stage to all this, is more important than trying to bully a country into submission, with sanctioning, isn't it?

    Nice to hear someone a lot closer to the story and hear your opinion. The people in the US only have a bias war monger news media to listen to

    There is bias news media everywhere....not just in the US. And there is confrontation on both sides too and each side swears it was the other side that started it.

    Peace talks only work if both sides want the same thing to me. That's just not happening here in my opinion.

    In fact I have had to separate many a couple of squabbling infants and toddlers @Jeff Tracy since I have cared for little ones most of my life...raising my own and nurturing others in both public daycares and my own home one. And one thing I have learned is you can separate them, talk all you want to them about doing the right thing, etc. but the next day they could be right back at squabbling again. :)

    There are two people here that want the last word...and sooner or later one of them will get it. But I wouldn't expect that anytime soon.

    The American hear only that he is insane and wants to nuke us and we need to strike first. In North Korea they are telling their people remember the US destroying our country and killing a lot of us this insane country has been running around the world attacking countries and destroying them and our only hope is to have a deterrent like nuclear weapons to stop it because that is the only thing that prevents them from attacking us because they are insane.

    The man is probably a little crazy but it is up to the people in his country to fix the problem not the US. The US has not been successful in fixing any country and screwing up most I think he is not a threat to anyone but puts up a front to stop someone from attacking his country. Actions speak louder than words so far he has none nothing flying a missile over another country this goes on all the time but it is usually the US doing it.

    I definitely agree it is not up to the US to fix North Korea's problems. And I don't feel that is what Trump is trying to do.

    When North Korea's Dictator threatens America then America's President is going to stand up against that threat and he should in my opinion.
