The chief danger that confronts the coming century will be religion without the Holy Ghost,
Christianity without Christ, forgiveness without repentance, salvation without regeneration,
politics without God, heaven without hell.
“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.”
― William Saroyan
The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of the blessings. The inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing of misery. -- Winston Churchill
Ignorance is not an opinion, liberals
I believe in Christianity as I believe the sun has risen; not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. C. S. Lewis
if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14
THERE WILL BE NO THREATS OF ANY KIND AT THIS BLOG, TO POLITICIANS OR OTHER COMMENTERS. thank you.
I take that as meaning if we DO end up in a war, some of the thousands of rockets claimed to be aimed at S.K. and Japan could make it through because our ability to get them all isn’t possible. This would probably be true even if we initiated the attack, which isn’t our policy. There would be destruction on all sides.
Great. My co-host is over there on business….
Then again Hillary is there today.
She’s shooting at Trump. I hope he doesn’t “shoot” back.
What it means to ME is that WE are going to be attacked because we didn’t take No Korea seriously and now they’re ready.
Ed, your co-host just might be luckier than you are.
If I was a liberal, I’d do nothing but call Trump out over EVERYTHING…he’d finally implode and get impeached for the unbelievably ridiculous responses…imagine? EVERY DAY, 3 of them?
I WISH some of you had the curiosity to see CNN’s nastiness….whatever important story FOX is covering, CNN is absolutely NOTHING but hate-Trump stories, one after the other, rolled eyes, horrid inferences, featuring the worst of the worst politicians. Honestly, it’s SO OVERT it’s like a joke all day long and you might enjoy it !!!
I’ve been to Korea on several occasions. I know several Korean-Americans. I have never met a Korean who is a normal human being. Seriously. They are quick-tempered, obstinate, inflexible, and none of their brains are fully formed until around the age of 50. So, is Kim Jung Un capable of initiating a nuclear exchange? Absolutely. Does this mean that the US, Japan, South Korea, or even China should kiss his hind-end? No … and I will say that Korea today (either one of them, actually) is precisely where the Japanese were in 1898. The only thing the Japanese understood through 1945 was a severe ass whipping. As to the US diplomatic effort … as I have said previously, the United States has not had a competent diplomat since Elihu Root.
But what does all this mean to the average American? Nothing. Go about your life, enjoy your friends, a glass of good wine, a fine dinner, and sleep well. The snafu between North Korea and the world isn’t something we can do anything about … so, as the songwriter tells us: Don’t Worry, Be Happy.
Mustang, I TOTALLY agree, and live by, your second paragraph…but I WILL say one of my fave people is a very Christian American Korean named Elizabeth Park…….Would that we were negotiating with her 🙂
But I see what you’re saying…no, this man in NoKo is incapable of sanity and MY POINT IS WE’RE BENT ON DIPLOMACY TO THE POINT WHERE I WONDER IF WE AREN’T INSANE, TOO.
Most countries would DO SOMETHING in efforts to avoid annihilation but I suppose nukes add a whole new slant to this whole awful thing?
I read where the bigger threats are cyberthreats, and potentially having NK throw up ooodles of satellites which would explode creating large amounts of space junk in low Earth orbit making the area effectively unusable for the ISS and harming many of the other satellites already up there.
Now I’m wishing I hadn’t sent Kim that nasty email.
When I think of the grid going down, Kid, I think of my friend Elizabeth who lived through Hurricane Andrew but without any electricity for 9 months…only cold showers, no fridge, no AC……….
NK has to go.
Before we all do.
Z, If NK puts some serious hurt on the USA, then the USA is so imcompetent that it goes beyond words…
