Even if we knock them out of the sky, if they are armed with a nuclear warhead, wouldn't it still rain radiation down on earth? Maybe it wouldn't be as catastrophic as Hiroshima or Nagasaki, but the long term effects of radiation damage on the atmosphere, crops and civilization could still be devastating (see Chernobyl).

The stock market has been down since Trump's fire and fury comments. Is it cynical of me to think that he will tone it down with NK since it appears the uncertainty is affecting his $$$ and bottom line of his portfolio and real estate/hotel/resorts etc holdings?

Ya think? It would be oh so out of character for Trump to put his self interest first!!

At least we will know if we can do what we claim.

I think they are sending up unarmed missiles.........but who knows and do you really want to chance it?

Meanwhile, Interstate CrossCheck still exists and no one talks about it. This is the real voter fraud culprit.

Intentionally disenfranchising hundreds of thousands of people in key states and gerrymandering is the real crime.

Some college kid submitting fraudulent voter registration documents(understand this isn't votes or voting), is not an issue even remotely similar to the systematic large scale voter fraud perpetrated against the People every election cycle.

And just when we thought he had heard the last of Benghazi...........

Quote:
Judge Amit Mehta, who was nominated by former President Barack Obama, ruled that the State Department should search the state.gov emails as well, noting "this matter is a far cry from a typical FOIA case. Secretary Clinton used a private email server, located in her home, to transmit and receive work-related communications during her tenure as secretary of state."
The judge has ordered a status report by September 22.

Quote:
The group argued that the State Department's search of her emails wasn't good enough, saying only external sources were searched -- including the 30,000 emails turned over to the State Department by Clinton, FBI's search of Clinton's private email server and emails turned over by Mills, Abedin, and Sullivan.

One has to wonder why the state.gov was never searched.

If the warhead doesn't detonate then it shouldn't spread radiation if knocked down. A nuclear detonation requires very precise explosions to work.

I would say it's all bluster as usual but who knows with the increased insanity nowadays. Also I wouldn't count on missile defense working. It's only been successfully tested half of the time and that's when they know exactly what's coming.

Then again I kind of doubt North Korea has that much accuracy or reliability in their missiles either.

1. Trump pieces together speeches like an 8th grader trying to reach a word quota on an essay.
2. He doesn't know how to give a measured response

The combination is very scary to listen to

Any of you fuckbirds saying you'd "like to see NK launch" need to check your dumbass heads. What we need to do is what 42, 43, and 44 did and ignore that irrelevant, isolated shithole.
