    I don't think China mobilizing troops is anything to really freak out about, but it's not something to ignore either. It's likely them puffing out their chest and nothing more, but I can't be certain, obviously.

    As for NK..who the hell knows. They seem to want to hit Japan but can't, then say they can reach the United States whenever people say their rocket tests are failing.

    The troops on the Chinese border are likely intended to intimidate NK not the West.
    If Kim falls I expect China to annex the country which is a pretty good outcome for the rest of the world

    Why do people give a shit about North-Korea? Hundreds of threats over the years and every single time they have done nothing. What has changed?

    Kim Jong Un is a paranoid, unpredictable psychopath who even the Chinese can't control. His father made nuclear threats in the past too, but he was always willing to negotiate and cooperated with the Chinese.

    I'm normally against regime change for a number of reasons, but I agree completely with Incy. China need to get him out of there. That is the only way to avert war in that region.

    The Korean conflict was never ended. We've only achieved cease fire status, no peace treaty has ever been signed. The border between north and south is one of eternal vigilance against restarting that war and is heavily guardedr but no one is really sure what Un is planning.

    This is not "new", it's more than 60 years of history

    President Trump flipped on about four or five campaign things today. Pretty impressive switch away from his campaign and towards being a mainstream politician. Right after throwing Bannon under the bus.

    Be interested to hear Trump fans views on his policy swings in the past few weeks.

    Its almost as if he hasn't got an idea of what he wants.

    Didn't take him long to throw Bannon under the bus in favor of Wall Street.

    Hopefully he'll flip flop on some of his domestic policy as well.

    Looks like Trump just used one of the largest non-nuclear bombs to bomb the shit out of ISIS in Afghanistan.

    Well the article and the way Spicer is talking about it suggests Trump had nothing to do with it, but I guess more will come out soon.

    Bullshit that Trump had no part. He's the President ffs.

    As for everything that's happened over the past few days, he's done a good job in distracting from the issues over Russia. He's better at this Politics lark than I gave him credit for.

    The operation has been in progress for months, so it appears that much of it was planned/carried out under the Obama administration.

    That being said, Trump is the President and obviously at least knew it was happening. Whether he gave the order to drop the bomb or found out about it when he took office and said "yeah, just keep going," remains to be seen.

    Whatever. Operations like this I mostly approve of. As far as I know, it was dropped in a mountain range away from populated areas and apparently just blew the shit out of a bunch of caves that ISIS was apparently holed up in. If that's all true and no innocent lives are lost, I say job well done.

    If it doesn't require presidential approval, which it didn't per the report, I'm not sure why we think the president had to have signed off on it.

    That no one in the White House is saying "Fuck yeah we did that" speaks volumes.

    If he was the one that approved it, good for him. If it had already been planned and approved and Trump just let it proceed, still good for him.

    Since when did bombing ISIS become a bad thing? ESPECIALLY when it's done without harming civilians.

    I'm just laughing at the difference a few years makes.

    Back then I had friends who applauded President Obama for air strikes in Syria, and friends who thought it was awful.

    Now flip the tone of most of those friends.

    Just hilarious how people just follow the pack now.

    Seems like something Trump would have bragged about as well.

    Eh, drone warfare took plenty of criticism from people who voted for Obama and plenty of people that didn't vote for Trump aren't bothered by the bombing.
