I mean, I'm mostly interested in peace. I liked the Iran deal, and if Trump gets a deal that results in peace here I'll probably like this deal too.

Although admittedly, it's a little more personal with Korea, since I know a lot of people in e-sports who moved to South Korea, and some of my favourite game developers are from South Korea.

So...here's the thing. From what I understand, Trump has announced both stopping wargames, and pulling US troops out of South Korea. Stopping war games seems kind-of whatever, they can just start war games back up if the North acts out. US troops in South Korea, however, acts as a deterrent. If North Korea invades South Korea, they literally can't do it without attacking US Army bases, basically pulling the US into the war. The concern is that if the US pulls troops out of South Korea, then the North might think they can invade and the Americans might not respond.

Pulling troops out is a high risk move. Potentially high reward too if it actually leads to peace. But yeah, I'm definitely on edge worried about my friends right now.

He did not announce removing troops. Nor did he announce ending war games forever.

He announced ending the drills as long as the current direction continues.

He also announced he would be open to removing troops in some capacity if there ever was an agreement.

Needless to say none of that is going to happen if tomorrow Korea starts shooting off missiles.

DHS has announced a “strengthened Northern border strategy” amid growing tensions between the U.S. and Canada https://t.co/yeTZwpvh4E https://t.co/byRSNJ12hh


Again, not the Onion.


Considering Canada is getting a lot of refugees from the US (due to Trump) it would be funny if they built a wall and paid for it.

Hearing Donald speak about Kim reminded me of his arguing over the Charlottesville Nazis -- there's a comparison to be made about "a lot of tough leaders" (paraphrasing) against "on many sides, on many sides."

I don't like it.

Damn Trump is so smart, he figured out we've spent the past ten years planning our invasion
Meow!
And, once again, Trump's ratings INCREASE. What in the world is happening?

Apparently people prefer even dictators over the left now?

Speaking of which, Trump just gave a shout out to the neo-nazi apologist who just won VA's Republican gubernatorial primary!

I'm not sure Pruitt isn't first, tbh.
