    I'll tell you what. Feed, clothe, educate and provide free healthcare to the citizens of this nation. Fix our decaying infrastructure. When you have spent my tax dollars to that end, we can talk about spending the remainder on trump's testosterone.

    It never fail does is? Republicans have to go looking for another country to go to war with, it's like red meat to them. I tell what, if you want to go war then I insist you lot sign on for the front line first and bring your families too since your so nonchalant about everyone else's life!

    I am opposed to preempting North Korea. This is a very dangerous action. It could start a nuclear war which has been my biggest fear since President Trump was elected.

    We should not be doing preemptive strikes on North Korea. The last thing we need is another war. Especially one with a country that won't reason and is likely to consider mutually assured destruction as an acceptable outcome

    Should we start a war that will at the very least kill thousands of South Koreans, maybe unleash some nukes on South Korea and Japan, possibly cause many deaths to our soldiers stationed in the DMZ between the 2 country's . Or maybe get one of those nukes to go off near our fleet and kill thousands more Americans. This is just the very realistic possibilities of war with North Korea, it doesn't count the fog of war. With a crazoid like the one in North Korea. Have we become so insensitive that we have to even ask that question, This is not Television, It is real life. Wake up and smell the coffee!

    Please do not engage in war with North Korea unless there is no other option. We have an obligation to the rest of the world to set an example. This issue can be solved diplomatically by introducing trade to the impoverished country in exchange for their detachment from nuclear testing and arms development. Capitalism will introduce westernized values and education to these people and eventually give them the tools they need to overthrow a dictator themselves. We don't need to do it for them at the cost of war.

    Please avoid getting us into another war that we can't win. The current administration is playing war games with another leader who is also highly volatile and unstable. There is no good outcome on the horizon here, not with nuclear weapons in the picture. Peaceful adult sanctions and negotiations are in our best interest. Why do we seem so intent on starting a war all of a sudden?

    No! The resulting humanitarian crisis would be unparalleled; shelling of Seoul, a city of 10 million, ballistic missile attacks on Japan and the US military bases there, and the fallout if the NK government was actually toppled - millions of people suddenly without infrastructure- mass starvation etc.

    Seriously denounce the president should he ever consider a preemptive strike on North Korea. The US does not need another war to show off our military might. Tens of thousands more likely millions of lives are at stake.

    Do not bomb North Korea. Do not continue to goad them into war. Offer them food in exchange for their disarming their nuke program. They are starving. Embark on a "Rice for Rockets" diplomatic program.

    If you think we should go to war, send yourselves and your families first to the front lines, then let's discuss if this is a smart move or not. If you as our Public Servants won't go to fight this battle yourselves, in person, then no, preemptive strikes are not the right move.

    No. This dictator is just like Trump. They want to prove who is stronger or has the bigger bombs. Well the Pres & family would be rush to safety while we all fry. Trump is a bully but he equates this sjowdown like a game. His Korean counterpart is just as crazy as he is.

    Regarding preemptive action on North Korea: although that worked out so well for us in Iraq, I implore you not to support such actions again. How about spending money on poor and struggling Americans? Services? Education? A universal, single payer health system - you know, like they have in Australia (as the president seems to think they have a good health care system)? Stop spending so much money on aggressive and pointless wars!

    The increase in tensions coincides with the inexperienced President Trump and his first 100 days of tweets, insults and misdirection. We must keep up the political pressures involving China and international sanctions. The fact that we are even talking military action in evidence of Trumps failure as Commander and Chief.

    War has always been a quick fix for a failing administration, a quick boost approval rating and get the public to forget all that is wrong with the administration.
