No, it’s relevant, because either Kim will attack Japan or the US, he hasn’t done neither, more saber rattling.

Just like he did when Obama was president.

Just ignore Tubby for now. He and the Blond Bandit can take the center stage again after the health crisis is over. Kim will never give up his nukes' and Trump will never stop lying, so let's live with it. More important things to do today and the Chinese hold all the cards for now. We ignored them until it was evident they just might be a military threat with ICMB capability. Hope the Easter Bunny got through the lockdown yesterday ?

Sorry Dear Leader, nobody cares about you right now. If you need attention, just make a TikTok account.

the coronavirus pandemic, which Pyongyang insists it has so far escaped.

No way of knowing what's going on in North Korea. No free, for-profit press. Instead state controlled media. And to think some leaders in the 'west' want to limit how media report events. And the leader's followers cheer them on.

Its arsenal includes ICBMs (intercontinental ballistic missiles) that are capable of reaching the whole of the U.S. mainland.

So much winning!

It's time the two men children got back to the dialogue, methinks. Clearly, Kim is missing the spotlight.

Interesting to see such similar personality traits shared between Trump and Kim...neither of them can stand not being the center of attention....

Kim fires off his old, dilapidated missiles...

Trump gives us a bizarre daily TV example of his increasing dementia...

Sex or missile firing! Got to shot something...

Tiny Kim at it again. Firing missiles at this time is a cowardly thing to do, with hundreds of millions in the region living in terror of the virus. If those US Navy ships wanted to, they could flatten North Korea and take out Kim within 20 minutes. I hope he understands this.

When the war against Covid-19 is over, people will remember your cowardly acts, Tiny Kim.

Okay, but this doesn’t change the fact that Donny clearly doesn’t have him under control.

Under control is Kim having the ability to do what he wants? Makes perfect sense.

The world is busy right now for this character, needs to take a chill pill.

Glad to see an evolution from Donny has it under control to Kim’s self-control is keeping Kim in control.

Remember when Obama-haters pilloried him for being willing to talk with our adversaries? I do. That was before they demonstrated their lack of integrity by doing screeching 180s when Donny started capitulating to and appeasing Kim.

Kim has nuclear weapons, the Iranians don’t.

1 ( +3 / -2 )

Let’s not forget that conservatives were screeching about Obama being willing to talk to our adversaries long before thee nuclear deal with Iran was signed. This means saying the deal was a disaster is completely irrelevant to the fact that those conservatives that screeched about Obama now cheer Donny.

The Iranians being a threat to our allies is irrelevant to the fact that the DPRK has nukes and Iran doesn’t.

Lil kim been eating well lately

Can't say that about the millions who are starving in his realm. Fat boy's eating disorder is not his only disorder. He has a thing with firing rockets, he wants attention and like someone else lying comes easy - no corona cases? Yeah, right.

Kim clearly misses his celebrity status. Covid-19 defeated him.

No, he just never tried it, 

Another thing Trump lied about.

Well what a shame the worlds so-called policeman has a weakling of a dictator-loving toadie as president.

It is about time somebody rained down some missiles on Fatty. He aint going nowhere and the orange fruit-cake in the Whitehouse has only emboldened kim.

Tuesday's missiles travelled over the Sea of Japan, also known as the East Sea, before coming down in the water, the JCS said.

Still at it with this "East Sea" nonsense. smdh

Love the changing goal posts. From he had it under control and we have nothing to worry about to watch what happens if he touches one of our allies. You see, if Donny has it under control, Kim wouldn’t be able to even threaten Japan. 

Well, he hasn’t and he won’t, so basically the man is doing this for what? Sanction relief? Won’t happen, but he’s bored, I get it, nothing to do in that country, But if he wants to start something, he should try, just try it.

Okay, but that’s irrelevant to Donny having assured us repeatedly that he had Kim under control and Kim continuing to do what he wants. Good lord, why do conservatives have so much trouble with relevance?

No, it’s relevant, because either Kim will attack Japan or the US, he hasn’t done neither, more saber rattling.

I think only Koreans know the name of the East Sea. Not” well-known”

If Kim’s self-control keeps him from acting, it means Donny does not have Kim under control. The mental gymnastics to avoid admitting one is wrong are impressive.

Yes and why would Trump record anything that the Dems would pounce on, they’re already working overtime day in and day out and on the hour, I wouldn’t either. With Castro it was totally different.

I found it very disturbing that the presidents and leaders of the two most powerful nuclear weapons have a secret meeting without anyone present and without any transcripts. Nothing to do with the democrats. I would feel the same regardless whoever the president was.

So the old guy knows that the loud guy in the bar is going to be the quietest , dont worry about the attention seeker its the quiet one who gonna be the problem, lil kim is just a fat loud mouth f__ker with nothing to back it up but the red flag n the yellow star standing behind him

By the end of Trump's term NK will have significantly increased their missile capabilities with a big stack of love letters from Trump.

Maybe China and North Korea are planning something much bigger than this crisis.

This has to be fake news given Donny assured us repeatedly via twitter that he had Kim under control. Or, are we to believe always truthful Donny was lying? Or, are we to believe that the stable genius had no idea what he was talking about?

Ganbare Fighto! Surely “Abe-san” and “Aso-sensei” can deal with this.

These missiles do not explode on impact so nobody needs to worry

Someone's not been getting enough attention lately, with all things focus on Corona and not him. Reminds me of Trump, his lover -- or at least, that's what Trump says. Kim's likely just using him for his lack of a brain.

"t has carried out a series of weapons tests in recent months, often describing them as multiple launch rocket systems while others have called them ballistic missiles."

Well, in either case, Trump and his supporters approve. All Kim needs to do is write nice letter, and problem solved.

He is. Let Kim hit Japan and or one of our basis and watch the country be enveloped by a mushroom cloud.

Or, are we to believe always truthful Donny was lying? Or, are we to believe that the stable genius had no idea what he was talking about?

What you can believe is the fact that Kim doesn’t want to see any stealth bomber or a carrier in the region.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

Sea of Japan ?

-3 ( +1 / -4 )

Not like commanding, but Kim is very careful, so if Kim were bold and didn’t care about his very existence he would definitely strike the US, I’m sure of it, but having an unpredictable President like Trump, he’ll use the full might of the US to stop him were Kim that foolish, so Kim’s self-control is fear of getting his you know what kicked.

If Kim’s self-control keeps him from acting, it means Donny does not have Kim under control. The mental gymnastics to avoid admitting one is wrong are impressive.

Well, he does. His self control is keeping him and his nation alive, if he goes and does what he wants, he becomes a cult of personality we will all read in history books of a man that once was, but acted stupidly and him and his country annihilated. So his control and fear of what Trump will do is keeping him in check.

Just like he did when Obama was president

No, because we didn’t have any conflicts for one and two Obama never even tried to sit down with the man, but he did with the Iranians. Kim has nothing, but the Iranians do.

Kim will never give up his nukes'

He doesn’t have to, it would of course commendable if he did, but as long as he doesn’t hit our men and women or Japan he can keep his poor regime.

and Trump will never stop lying, so let's live with it.

....And neither will the hounding media, so we just have to deal with it all.

More important things to do today and the Chinese hold all the cards for now.

As far as creating this virus, yes.

We ignored them until it was evident they just might be a military threat with ICMB capability.

And we have the F-22 so I don’t think their stupid.
