      Trump's "Bloody Nose"

      Strategy For North Korea

      Targeted Strikes, Avoid Nuclear War


      "Dear Leader" and his million-man army


      By Ray Cunneff

      January 10, 2017


      Several reputable news outlets, including The Wall Street Journal, Business Insider, The Telegraph (UK) and Axios, are reporting high-level talks among Trump administration officials about the potential to conduct a limited, surgical military strike against sites in North Korea in a "bloody nose" strategy.

      The strategy involves launching targeted strikes against North Korean facilities in response to either a nuclear or missile test. The strike would be meant to humiliate North Korea's regime by demonstrating the potential consequences of its actions without leading to an all-out, possibly nuclear, war.

      Needless to say, this is a very risky proposition fraught with the possibility for unintended consequences. The Pentagon has signaled that it has little appetite for such an action, but the Trump administration seems intent upon a more muscular strategy.

      Relations between North Korea and the international community have been hair-trigger tense following a series of nuclear tests and intercontinental ballistic missile launches.

      The U. N. Security Council voted unanimously in late December to impose sanctions on North Korea intended to strangle its economy.

      But just as hopeful signs of a slight thaw in relations between North and South Korea regarding the North's participation in next month's Winter Olympics have appeared, these reports can do little to help improve the tensions on the Korean peninsula.

      The strategy relies on North' Korea's deified and belligerent leader, Kim Jong Un, to correctly interpret the attack as a limited, punitive strike and not the first shots fired in a second Korean War.

          This borders on the ridiculous. If you attack, or bomb, another country, you have started a war. The idea that the other side will just sit back and be punished borders on total stupidity. The other side will almost certainly do something, and if you are not prepared for whatever, then you are utterly stupid. Unfortunately, the Trump administration looks stupid.

              Even after the Admin. knocked down this "bloody nose" strategy or any other war strategy unless NK attacks us or our friends., we the people still keep beating the war drums to keep people uptight. Why can't we find something else to write about?

                  The Pentagon tried to "knock down" this talk of a bloody nose strategy, insisting it was a no-win scheme. It was the administration, presumably led by H.R. McMaster, who apparently has a bug up his sphincter about North Korea, that was advancing the idea.

                      To those of us who can see Trump for what he really is, we realize that he is intent on starting a war somewhere or anywhere. Please show me where "the Admin knocked down this "bloody nose" strategy" Maybe you've noticed that this is an open forum and members can post on any topic they like.

                      The Yemen attack is indicative of Trump's "military expertise", you know the raid that Obama rejected as being to dangerous and unjustified. A Navy Seal died for nothing along with innocent Yemenis.

                          My two cents .....

                          One , many have said that the strategy of responding to Kim's antics is better than ignoring him ( the Obama strategy )

                          Evidently the people in office have never watched children .... It just doesn't work ....

                          My other "point" ? Well Trump says his "button" is "bigger" .....

                          But all of us forgot about his "little hands" ....

                          It only seems bigger to Trump ....

                          Gotta laugh when you want to cry ....
