US and South Korea Announce Plans for Massive Air Force Exercise Aimed at North Korea

Common Dreams staff

The early December drill comes as tensions continue to rise over North Korea's nuclear program and Trump's persistant antagonization of the nation's leader

Provoke, antagonize, and taunt North Korea with a show of force until they retaliate?

The closer Mueller gets to Trump, the closer we are to nuclear war.

Yes, the miscreant will want to socialize annihilation.


#8

There is only one way to interpret this and that is-- nuclear war. The perfidious metaphorical pyromanic Trump is not only content with burning down all our institutions and safety net for the vast majority of Americans but wants to incinerate the world. Clearly we are definitely not dealing with a JFK or Khrushchev.


#9

The United States of America has failed the world. The elite of the US more concerned with making profit off of war and destabilizing regions of the world have failed. Other powers now move to take the place of the US empire. Trump is the fool who symbolizes the corrupt greed and self centered view coming from America,how fitting. And a corporate media incapable of dealing with the rot embedded in the political system.

Change Nikki Haley’s statement over a month ago at the UN to say that it’s the US that wants war with N Korea instead of her claim that N Korea wants war and we can see the real problem. The US keeps adding fuel to a fire that inches ever closer to an all-out conflagration that could easily escalate to a global nightmare. This is indeed a nightmare situation and most folks buy the constant barrage of propaganda by all the MSM’s talking heads that N Korea is doing things they can’t possibly be doing. For instance; Russia and China have made plans and arrangements within their governments to shift their economies and production to weaponry. Don’t worry, the US’s is firmly in place already, a big reason they instigate wars the world over otherwise why go to the ridiculous expense in a peaceful world. While good folks are out shopping and having fun the gangstas of the military and Trump administration are doing their damnedest to ruin the upcoming holidays. I hope these’s a voice of reason somewhere that will halt these provocative acts of aggression towards N Korea.

And we all know what they did to JFK.

You got it, that is the idea. Trump generates wars, Then the military industrial corporate complex gets more contracts. Bada bing bada boom Trump runs for re-election in 2020 and he gets all sorts donations from these corporations. This fits the general category of America’s fixation on fighting wars on the other side of the planet, and that is a primary reason we now have a $20 trillion national debt.


#13

Oh, yeah, what could possibly go wrong with this scenario???

The Idiot-In-Chief moronically blathers-on in 140 characters while the world burns…and millions of lives threatened…ignorance is bliss, but this dung-head goes (way) beyond the pale…

These “exercises” every couple a months are totally unnecessary and unjustifiable. They are extremely wasteful as well. Their main purpose seems to be; a) as an excuse to funnel more and more money to “defense”; and b) To scare the American public so much that they will not question a) above.

North Korea was not our enemy until Trump decided to make it into one. Ditto for Iran.

Trump, you are not John Wayne, and this isn’t a WW2 patriotic p.r. movie! This is real life, man! For God’s sake grow up!


#16

More war please. More blood for profit please. insanity america!


#17

It’s feeling more and more likely that the earth is indeed the insane asylum for the universe.


#18

How much will it cost taxpayers to conduct a massive air force exercise? Can we charge it to Trump personally? Last year he made $3.1 billion and paid NO taxes on that income due to having investments in offshore tax shelter shell companies. Trump’s name was mentioned in the Panama Papers (about the offshore shell company scam) over 3,500 times.


#19

I believe that was GW Bush; unless of course, you want to take history back until just after WWII.


#20

True. Trump has outdone even GWB, however, and seems determined to go to war.


#21

War-time presidents generally get re-elected. Perhaps that’s Crumpus’ master plan. I don’t understand how he think’s we all will survive a nuclear attack on the Korean peninsula. Then again, we’re dealing with a Man Boy with the dialogue and understanding of a third grader.
