Idiotic leaders

“If the American imperialists provoke us a bit, we will not hesitate to slap them with a pre-emptive nuclear strike. The United States must choose! It’s up to you whether the nation called the United States exists on this planet or not.” – Kim Jong Un

“North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. . . . He has been very threatening beyond a normal state. They will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before.” – Donald Trump

These are two national leaders, both of whom are demonstrably irrational and unhinged and who both have access to nuclear weapons. This sort of idiotic rhetoric uttered with zero rational thought threatens the very security of both the United States and South Korea.

Fortunately, we have a Congress and military where sanity reigns that would put a stop to suicidal military adventures.
