Skip to comments.Robinson: Playground taunts will not defuse North Korea crisis
Posted on 08/11/2017 8:00:29 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
This is what we dreaded. Some international crisis was bound to flare up, and President Trump would make it worse. Now we can only hope that the mature adults surrounding him are able to cool things down.
Trump probably thought it was oh-so-clever to answer North Korean leader Kim Jong Uns nuclear provocations with a taste of the dictators own apocalyptic language, threatening fire and fury like the world has never seen. It sounded like a playground taunt, reflecting the presidents emotional immaturity.
Dealing with this crisis will require patience and realism, both of which Trump totally lacks.
There is no quick solution. If there were, Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush or Barack Obama would have implemented it long ago.
Trump once said he would be willing to meet with Kim. If the president can be kept from making further threats and the present crisis allowed to subside, perhaps we can eventually offer direct talks between Washington and Pyongyang something Kim dearly wants with the subject being a verifiable freeze on the North Korean nuclear program. After a freeze is in place for a while, it might be possible to negotiate reductions.
As I said, we need to be patient and realistic. Someone please distract the president with a shiny object for the next few years.

I’m gonna vomit.
North Korea has the same old allies- the media and the democrat party!
“After a freeze is in place for a while, it might be possible to negotiate reductions.”
Statements like that expose the colossal ignorance of the writer.
Eugene, like your great writing is going to deter Trump?
Robinson has been a liberal racist idiot for as long as I can remember. He hasn’t had a thought of his own in 20 years.
It worked with 16 Republicans. It also worked on Hillary Clinton. So he’s bullying Junior and Russia and China they’re getting it. Don’t let up on Junior. The Russians and the Chinese promote this little punk keep pushing him in their face.
So, when someone is threatening to gun you down in your home, Robinson...let’s hope you’re both mature enough to work it out.
Well you know Robinson is the stupid man’s stupid. When I clicked and saw it was Eugene there was no reason to read it.
Gene...how about a nice vacation in Guam! There’s a flight leaving LA later today.
I think the Congressional Black Caucus should hop on a plane and visit Dear Leader . Then Trump should recall the plane and pull their passports .
It was nice not hearing from this salad-tossing Lefty rentboy for 8 years.
Eugene always hides behind “we” like a total coward.
Not so much ignorant as deluded as to normal human reactions and natural law. As a liberal he believes to some extent that reality is a mental construct, that if he thinks something then it is true. That concept of reality in its pure form allows the actual existence of only one mind in one person. The extant version is flawed in that the thinker, in order for his thoughts to have effect, must make everyone else think the same thing.
I believe that this is what Trump wants. He doesn’t want to defend South Korea for ever. China has problems with India and it’s Himalayan border. Russia is involved in the Middle East. They both don’t want to get involved with this little person in North Korea.
“There is no quick solution. If there were, Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush or Barack Obama would have implemented it long ago.”
There is no long term solution. If there were, Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush or Barack Obama would have implemented over the last 23 years.
Reminds me of the Reagan quote “It’s not that our Democrat friends don’t know anything, it’s that so much of what they know isn’t so.”
Who's "we", Kemosabe?
Speak for yourself, you simian moron.
