Good that you have at least some notion of the depth of your ignorance.

I believe the term is 'old as dust'. You can make black dirt in about 6 months. Just sayin, . . .

Trouble is the whole world knows its the US starting this and they are going to all jump on the US in return
while the ones behind it all will sit back somewhere else and
LAUGH

BTW just for example:
The US contains 104 nuclear reactors and they are all overdue.
26 are the same as Fukyoushima
...so all they have to do is turn the power off for a few weeks and it will be all over.

no delivery system needed

...and that's just one vector...
then there are 33 million or so illegal immigrants
guns can't stop them:
they came here unarmed and then BOUGHT guns

thanks democrats

I know the Bushes are liking south america and have many neighbors moving in down there with them...
near where Hitler went
I betcha obama has a spot down there somewhere too

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson issued a stern ultimatum to Russia Tuesday: side with America and its allies on Syria, or stand alongside Syrian President Bashar Assad, Iran and the militant group Hezbollah.

The story can be figured out by looking at who is going to visit whom. Tillerson gets to speak to Putin's Associate (as powerful as he is) and the answer he will take back to trump is the same one relayed to Trump before the Tillerson's trip ever got off the ground. Ask the Israeli PM if that is the way it works or not.

Memory of the bloody, indecisive first Korean War, 1950-53, which killed close to 3 million people, has faded. Few Americans have any idea how ferocious a conventional second Korean War could be.

The US could literally blow North Korea off the map using tactical nuclear weapons based in Japan, South Korea and at sea with the 7th Fleet. Or delivered by B-52 and B-1 bombers and cruise missiles. But this would cause clouds of lethal radiation and radioactive dust to blanket Japan, South Korea and heavily industrialized northeast China, including the capital, Beijing.

China would be expected to threaten retaliation against the United States, Japan and South Korea to deter a nuclear war in next door Korea. At the same time, if heavily attacked, a fight-to-the-end North Korea may fire off a number of nuclear-armed medium-range missiles at Tokyo, Osaka, Okinawa and South Korea. These missiles are hidden in caves in the mountains on wheeled transporters and hard to identify and knock out.

This is a huge risk. Such a nuclear exchange would expose about a third of the world’s economy to nuclear contamination, not to mention spreading nuclear winter around the globe.

A conventional US attack on North Korea would be far more difficult. The North is a small nation of only 24.8 million. Its air and sea forces are obsolete and ineffective. They would be vaporized on the first day of a war. But North Korea’s million-man army has been training and digging in for decades to resist a US invasion. Pyongyang’s 88,000-man Special Forces are poised for suicide attacks on South Korea’s political and military command and control and to cripple key US and South Korean air bases, notably Osan and Kunsan.

North Korea may use chemical weapons such as VX and Sarin to knock out the US/South Korean and Japanese airbases, military depots, ports and communications hubs. Missile attacks would be launched against US bases in Guam and Okinawa.

Short of using nuclear weapons, the US would be faced with mounting a major invasion of mountainous North Korea, something for which it is today unprepared. It took the US six months to assemble a land force in Saudi Arabia just to attack feeble Iraq. Taking on the tough North Korean army and militia in their mountain redoubts will prove a daunting challenge.

US analysts have in the past estimated a US invasion of North Korea would cost some 250,000 American casualties and at least $10 billion, though I believe such a war would cost four times that much today. The Army, Air Force and Marines would have to mobilize reserves to wage a war in Korea.

Already overstretched US forces would have to be withdrawn from Europe and the Mideast. Military conscription might have to be re-introduced.

My visits to South and North Korea have shown me that soldiers of both nations are amazingly......…

They weren't our nukes. They were US warheads on our weapons systems under NORAD agreements. Canada has never domestically produced a nuclear weapon.

Well, technically, the US of Aggression is a stain on human history...
