Merkel declined to say whether Germany would stand with the U.S. in case of a military conflict with North Korea.

The leader of the free world has weighed in. And now Tramp will be the defiant ill-tempered toddler he is.

Watch out, Chancellor Merkel. You might have some fire and fury tweets (or stronger, you’ll see) coming your way.

Canada has already dispatched envoys to North Korea to try and defuse the situation

Merkel stepping up now for the EU.

What we are seeing is USA being replaced on the global stage. And that is damage that will take decades to recovre (if we ever can).

Canada, and the rest of the thinking people around the globe, seem to understand “teh nuclear” better than Tramp managed to learn from his uncle…

Canada and Germany have real leaders who are smart enough to understand the larger implications of any military moves between countries. I heard someone say that we shouldn’t worry too much because Canada will step up and “protect” us. I don’t see it that way at all - rather it’s a sign that the U.S. is going to be more and more isolated by the rash behavior of its leader.

Trump’s rash statements are isolating us from our allies in Europe and Asia, just as his decision to pull out of the Trans Pacific Partnership did.
