    It's past time. I hope Mueller can get something going before April 9th. If Bolton takes over we'll be at war with North Korea.

    It's about time. President Clinton should've destroyed the North Korean regime in the early 1990s instead of letting that fool Carter get in the way.

    Hopefully we can get lucky and the combined death toll will be only around 500,000 give or take

    It certainly makes it much more likely.

    I understand he may not replace his Chief of Staff when he fires Kelly soon. I don't agree with Kelly on most everything, but at least he was reasonably level headed. Something Bolton isn't.

    But while he may not be level headed he's a pretty damn smart (we know this because he doesn't tell us so) war hawk. One that knows how to lead a man who receives his daily briefing from watching a one sided view of the news.

    So if the Chief of Staff, the last person who might provide an alternate opinion, is taken out of the room, it gives Bolton a free hand with our Entertainer-in-Chief. He'll be putty in his hands and that is a very scary prospect...

    Neither. Far too old to enlist anyway as you well know.

    It might be too late. Trump is replacing every cabinet member with a spine. The new appointees will never vote him out I am afraid.

    Would be nice if the Republicans would at least allow a vote for censure for any one of the dozen things he has done that is completely inappropriate for the office.

    Actually, Clinton had the beginnings of a possible solution with N. Korea worked out (the Agreed Framework) but Dubya blew it up after he was appointed prez by the Supreme Court.

    So when Americans get old and sick they have no right to have their opinion heard about when and where our military fights?

    Talk about undemocratic beliefs on your part.

    It sure looks like we "need" to invoke the 25th ( i mean we may end up in a war...possibly my mistake).

    It's not gonna happen. The 25th starts in the Cabinet and that is full of Trumper flunkies

    It requires a 2/3 vote from both Houses just like impeachment. In addition, you need to get the VPOTUS and majority of the Cabinet to agree. It is faster than impeachment, but probably harder to achieve, unless the President is much more loony than Trump. I guess you want Mike Pence for President. I, for one, will be happy.

    I wouldn't support a 25th Amendment implementation unless President Trump starts summoning the military officer who carries the "nuclear football" and starts looking at targeting options.

    We'll never know until it's done

    You actually want to start a war with North Korea?

    Within days Seoul will be a cemetery. If things look bad for Sum Fat Kim...he'll launch a nuke or three at Japan and possibly the US Mainland.

    And that doesn't even talk about China

    if we attack North Korea in the absense of an attack from them or an impending attack, China will defend North Korea.

    frankly I hope China tells Trump that if the USA attacks NK without a prior attack by NK or a clearly impending attack by NK, China will attack South Korea, Tokyo and Hawaii.
