According to South Korea, Donald Trump's (@realdonaldtrump) "friend" Kim Jong Un has executed members of his envoy immediately after the recent summit!

You laugh, but you're probably not far off from the truth!

erm, i don't think trump ordered the execution

@stan prentice That is correct. That's also why no one implied that he did.



 

@Daniel I know what you mean, most on the 'right' in the USA tout free speech as a top value, yet they blindly approve of this because Trump put his stamp on it. At one of his election rallies he once asked Russia to steal & leak documents and then thanked Wikileaks - such hypocrisy... but it doesn't even feel good to convince people of this anymore, because nothing changes, his supports don't care. I saw one in a chat recently suggest that the US "could use a dictatorship for a few years to straighten things out", as if would be fixed and go back to democracy afterwards... such fools.



 

The thing is the whole US defense budget is based on the idea that projecting force prevents war...and in all likelihood has done just that...the problem is that instead of simply projecting force, it's also driven violence in conflicts we had no place in. We put our noses in other countries' affairs because Russia (or some other scapegoat) was putting their nose in the area...that's a BS excuse...the real reason was the military budget was in danger of getting cut and they needed a reason to keep it funded at high levels...so war...we start fights where we can, butt into other fights where we can, "keep peace" where we can because we can...and because we do, we are able to keep blowing trillions of dollars on stupid causes...and the human cost is unfathomable.
