if they did that to their own korean brothers then what does that tell
you about them and what they deserve.

The leader of NK doesn't give a damn about his own people, so why would
he care about SKoreans...
 
In any case, bombing their nukes with conventional bombs would likely
not work as they have moving nuclear weapons, or at least claim the do.
And if you managed to destroy them - then what? War with a country of
25m utterly brainwashed people who hate you their guts?

you think we're not watching where they're moving them? i'm not sure
you're aware of the american war machine's capabilities.

>And if you managed to destroy them - then what? War with a country of
>25m utterly brainwashed people who hate you their guts?
 
would rather not be involved in war with anybody, period. most
definitely would rather not be the unprovoked instigator of a war we
find ourselves in, or anyone else is either.
 
but defense is another story. i'm not convinced yet that NK is in any
type of truly offense posture toward the USA. talk is cheap. that fat
lil guy needs some sort of attention. maybe send over a few blondes.

Mentioning how America won't tolerate Korean threats any more, and
then threatening wirh fire, fury, using their propaganda language
was marvelous.
 
It surely resonates with Kim much better than some silly lecture
how "nuclear threat is unacceptable to international community"
when the truth is, interventional community doesn't give a shit
and Koreans know it.
 
China, Russia, Pakistan, India, Iran, France, Italy, all would be
within the reach of Korean missiles, but none giving a shit.

they outghta show trump doing something a little crazy, a little
unpredictable, or like leaning up against a wall in a room with the
"nuke button" there, etc.

they will for sure. but i don't think i'll be 1 of them unless rafa
gets a 3rd wimbledon.

>That's just one form of 7543. Aka bs.
 
it's subjective for sure, but just counting most slams has its
problems. say a guy has most slams and 0 wimbledons? he cannot be GOAT
in my book.
 
but rafa does have:
multiple wimbledons
multiple on all surfaces
FO record
OG
H2H over fed
 
1 more wimbledon, and even with 5 less wimbledons than fed he'll be
GOAT to me with 19.

the fight between me and TT was a 1 round TKO. mercifully for TT, the
ref stopped it.

the day you get an american ts ssbi or sci clearance you can
understand that culture and you can talk about these things. until
then, you don't know what you don't know and you're bringing your own
history and background of opinions into it, which don't apply.

cleared of what? benghazi wasn't her fault.
 
of course her lies and deception in covering it up in part cost her an
election. :-)

nice article but only the NYT could take that data and blame a man
who's been in office 6 months, when clinton/bush/obama had 24yrs.
 
and only you would agree with that conclusion.

Trump is the last man on Earth to choose to handle diplomacy.
Maybe Scaradouche was even worse.

if this the means to that end, hopefully, so be it. from what i've
read even from democrats, ISIS is reeling, lost their capital, and is
downgraded quite a bit from a year ago.

The 18 year old just beat DelPo in straights to set up a potential third round encounter with Nadal.
 
I have been following this kid's career over the past year or so. He has a great lefty serve, firepower off both wings especially that lovely one-handed backhand, an all-court game and does not seem intimidated by the big stage. He nearly upset Berdych in Queen's (a Berdych who was playing superbly), has beaten Kyrgios before and now DelPo. Always liked his game but beginning to feel more and more like he's the real deal.
 
Anyone else has any thoughts on him?

P.S. I know that DelPo has been a shell of himself this year, but it still isn't easy to beat him.

I don't have much to add, just that I watched a clip of him (was it you who
posted initially about him? I think so) and thought he looked good, esp that
BH. I'd love to see a young guy finally break through, esp with a one-hander. :)
