    Trump and Jung un are e threatening each other with "fire and fury" and attacking Guam. I am wondering what will come of these latest threats to each others territories. CNN has been going on about it all day now. I had to turn it off. I don't know if these 2 leaders are just talking or if something is really going to go down now. What do you think?

    Here is a recent article:

    Trump responded to reports of North Korea's nuclear threats on Tuesday, saying the regime "will be met with fire, fury and frankly power, the likes of which the world has never seen before." I'd say he's had enough

    like you im not privileged to that info.

    "the likes of which the world has never seen before". that's pretty much what Truman told Japan just before Hiroshima was flattened. and Trump is no bluffer. short ribs also has to face S Korea and Japan. if anyone's asking for it its him

    Well, Truman and Trump are 2 different presidents. Trump is known to use the term "the likes of which the world has never seen before" or similar often enough. I'm not saying he doesn't mean it. I really have no idea what will happen. Maybe Kim Jung Un is asking for it but there are so many lives at stake if Trump or him go through with the current threats. I kind of wish he and Trump would just get in a boxing ring and duke it out instead of involve all the lives of all these innocent people they may be doing harm to in the near future. What do you hope will happen?

    This has really been going on for awhile now...soon or later it will come to a head as it seems to be close to the boiling point now. What the outcome will be remains to be seen but it doesn't look promising for a good outcome for anyone in my opinion. :(

    I feel the same way @Gary Ridenour does. When a Leader of a communist country absolutely refuses to listen, and wants to plainly kill anyone that opposes him/her, the U.S. just can't stand around and wait all the time. Most people don't like the word "War", which is understandable, but when a party refuses to listen, just what else can be done?

    When you've got no choice - you have to act
    It's more than a pity we've come to this stage, but 'that's life' !

    War is one thing..nuclear war is whole new ball of wax...to me. If US decides to act...they best make certain to end it all in one shot...first go around...or well it could get real nasty afterward.

    I hope nothing comes of it. Trump is being criticized for responding to North Korea's threats, but he would have been criticized for not responding to them, as well.

    Guam is a part of the US. and we have more than one military base there. I heard on the news it has been heavily fortified with more military hardware, so going after Guam is going after us. nobody of the D side of the isle has the first clue what to do. Trump's inflamed it and they want it left alone. like maybe we'll wake up tomorrow and all will be well in the world. Christ O mighty

    Great "pipe dream", Hugh? All will be well......yea, right.
    But there will be protests if we do anything.
    Men and women enlist and go to military academies knowing full well that a war can happen and the can be a big part of the fighting.

    I don't see anything of consequence coming from all the blister. More or less two of a kind making noise. I think it will settle down when another problem arises here and Kim Jong-Un gets it all off his chest.

    In the past, the United States has always rewarded North Korea for this sort of behavior in the end.

    There IS another alternative to this mess. The United States has an unequaled record of successfully neutralising troublesome political leaders of foreign powers, although, they weren`t TOO impressive with Fidel Castro....Doesn`t the CIA have agents in place in Seoul..?

    I don't remember if I have read it here or not, but China has told North Korea that if it attacks any part of the US, it will remain neutral. North Korea has backed off it's threats. There are forces working in the background that we will never be told of. Whish is probably a good thing.

    ...All`s well which ends well, then. Just the latest bout of chest puffing, and sabre rattling...Besides, it would be an impossibility to fire off any warheads with any hope of accuracy because of the United States` ultra secret missile bending technology...
