You’ve got to hand it to Trump. He was getting buried in the polls, the liberal media was hounding him at every turn, and Democratic politicians wouldn’t back off their nonsensical narrative that the Russkies somehow gave him the election.
Then he flipped the script.
He attacked Syria, a Russian ally, for supposedly using poison gas on civilians and his popularity soared. There’s just one problem; Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad didn’t actually use chemical weapons. One of our terrorist allies probably did it to frame him.
Unfortunately for Assad, his country never pursued a nuclear weapons program, and if it wasn’t for the nuclear-armed Russians he’d be deader than Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi.
The truth is nuclear weapons are awesome, and without them Kim Jong-Un’s beefy man-tits would probably be wedged in a spider-hole as he waited for U.S. and ROK soldiers to find him.
The U.S. doesn’t want nuclear weapons to proliferate because we can’t bully nuclear armed powers. A naval squadron off your shore doesn’t have quite the same intimidating factor when you know you can literally obliterate one of your enemy’s cities, along with a few million of their people.
He can saber rattle all he wants, but the truth is Trump can’t do shit to North Korea because Kim Jong-Un has the big bomb, and there’s not a damned thing we can do about it.
