Sure it is an option. It is just a really really really bad one.

Trump said he “would prefer not going the route of the military, but it’s something certainly that could happen…”

“…if Mueller starts issuing indictments.”

"If we do use it on North Korea, it will be a very sad day for North Korea.”

It would not be a particularly good day for South Korea, China or Russia either. Lockheed, Halliburton and Academi, fka Xe, fka Blackwater, on the other hand . . .

Japan, Guam, or the rest of the Pacific Rim.

“We’ll see.”
“Everything’s on the table.”
“It’s an option.”
“…in two weeks.” / “…in a couple of weeks.”

But I can tell you that Donald Trump is behaving badly and it’s got to stop, okay?”

Note to Trumpymonkeybaby: bluffing requires that the person you’re bluffing actually believe you.

Can he not utter one fucking sentence that doesn’t include the word “beautiful”?

And hey, Dump- how’re you going to get the might of the US military even close to NK without them knowing, propagandizing, getting more paranoid, pissing off SK, China, and your good buddy Pootin?

No good options. Just none.

Resigning from office is an option, too. And a better one.

Only those who have never served brag about using the ‘military option’. Moron.

You want to go to war with North Korea, Trump? Go put on a uniform- and not that HMS Pinafore version you disgraced in ‘military’ school. Put on the one you repeatedly refused because of ‘bone spurs’.

Draft dodging neo-con (fill in the rest of the adjectives here…).

This is exactly what any president would say – the US has made a point of not limiting itself. But when trump says it, somehow it has more resonance.

Perhaps because of lines like “Each day new equipment is delivered, new and beautiful equipment, the best in the world, the best anywhere in the world by far.”

New and beautiful bombs and guns and missiles. Best ever.

Another land war in Asia? Is anyone really stupid enough to do this for a third time? There is no way it would end any better than the last two attempts by the U.S.

More likely it would end up being WW III with China becoming the new conscience of the civilized world. Can’t think of a faster way for the U.S to fade in prominence.

We only got started a little over 200 years ago and didn’t become a super power till about 75 years ago. It will all be gone and forgotten in less a year with Donald Trump leading us into an abyss. Or blows up in one awesome flash of a hydrogen blast.

This is a choice nobody should be offering to voters in 2018, but that’s the GOP message. Sad.

That elderly old fart Trump is fascinated with moving around those wooden soldiers that Bannon gave him as a victory gift. It reminds him of his youth (and numerous draft deferments)? Nobody can stop their advances. Nobody can tell him to grow up and put them away.

Maybe Mattis can show Trump how fast they burn up with a nuclear blast?

So is sticking your pecker in a blender, although it would have to be a stick blender in Trumps case, but that doesn’t mean it is a good option.

"Nothing’s inevitable,” Trump said.

I suspect that Mueller would disagree with Chiselin’ Trump.
