While we're dialing down rogue nations are dialing up. Brilliant containment strategy.

How does adding more nukes contain anything? We can destroy north Korea probably 1000 times, if not more. Seriously, do you think being able to do it 1500 times will suddenly "contain" them? It's worked great so far.  Roll Eyes

I don't think Kim thinks our capacity to nuke North Korea depends on how many warheads we're packing.  I don't think any doubling or trebling on Trump's part will make any impression on North Korea, Iran, ISIS, or anyone else.  It's overkill.

What WOULD help in dealing with North Korea would be for Trump to honor the nuke-containment deals we DO have, such as the one with Iran.  By backing out of that, he is signaling to Kim that there is no negotiation at all, even if they disarm.

Der Fuhrer has actually strengthened Kim's position among the people he and his father and grandfather have misled into borderline if not actual starvation over the last 70 years.  Having a press like the one envisioned by Seawolf and others (one that prints only the truth as defined by somebody else) helps a lot, too.  In this case, Kim can just print what Trump said.  Doesn't even have to spin it.  Or take it much out of context, since the only context was it popped in Trump's head and immediately came out his mouth without benefit of thought or filter. 

Kim and the Donald are two peas in a pod, the only difference being the Donald has a Constitution and a history of over 200 years of freedom to contain him.  Were it not for that, we'd know EXACTLY what it would be like to live under a dictator like Kim.

The U.S. currently has 4,018 Nuclear Devices down from a peak of 31,255 warheads in 1967.   

Trump saw a slide that showed the size of the U.S. nuclear stockpile over the past seven decades. Trump saw the highest point on the chart a half-century ago, the American stockpile was at 31,255 – and “told his team he wanted the U.S. to have that many now.”

In fairness to Trump, it appears that he only asked for an 8X increase.

“Recent reports that the president called for an increase in the U.S. nuclear arsenal are absolutely false. This kind of erroneous reporting is irresponsible,” Mattis said

Lulz, as if Mattis was going to confirm the report.

So Trump's key lieutenants are going to say their boss lied/was an idiot? Or are they going to back him up? Hmmm....  Undecided

You still haven't addressed your mischaracterization of Trump's position on increasing the nuclear stockpile. He wanted to greatly enhance and expand it, yes? Do you agree? Or did he lie in his tweet?

I wouldn't expect Mattis necessarily to confirm it, but I wouldn't expect him to deny it as being totally false if he didn't believe that.  I suppose it's possible Der Fuhrer could have said something like that outside of Mattis's presence, though.

The thing is, the Donald says whatever pops in his head.  He doesn't mean a good bit of it literally if at all.  It just popped in his head so it came out his mouth.  He'd do far better to admit that he speaks without really thinking about it rather than denying having said stuff he probably did say.  Whether this is an example of it or not, I don't know. 

Being a thin-skinned, impulsive, narcissistic sociopath means he really can't help himself.  He is what he is, we elected him, and we've gotta live with it until he goes away.  Seems to me like he's well into the third year of his second term already.

He wanted to greatly expand it when he said he wanted to greatly expand it, but he lives in the moment.  Long term planning for him is thinking about what fast food to have for lunch.  He thinks it and says it or tweets it without any long term considerations.  Today he wants to expand it.  Tomorrow no.  A tweet is just a snapshot in time with no long term meaning.  He is what he is, we elected him, and we're stuck with him until he goes away.
