Great idea, the best idea even! Obviously the only reason the US has left North Korea mostly alone for so long is because we didn't have a wonderful
fuhrer like Trump!
North Korea is a nuclear-powered IED that could turn ugly very quickly and very tragically.
Even our best Presidents would have a tough time dealing with it should the missiles start flying - minimizing civilian deaths, coordinating with our allies, and coaxing China into cooperating with or at least not hindering a US-led military coalition threateningly positioned on China's doorstep.
And that's just phase one. After the nail-biting military campaign, there's the daunting task of managing a postwar North Korea - dealing with the humanitarian crisis, building infrastructure, and re-introducing a populace traumatized and extensively brainwashed back to the rule of law and some semblance of democracy.
That's a hell of a task that would sorely try even our best and brightest. Trump is not our best. Trump typically isn't even the best in the room, and I'm including the time he spent on Pat Robertson's lap.
I despite the DPRK regime as much as anyone else. That country is run like one big concentration camp centered around a cult of personality. Severe human rights abuses have been going on there decade after decade. Sooner or later, it needs to end.
But it needs to be put to an end extremely carefully
. If we're just going to end up shooting from the hip, it would be better to just stay in harbor indefinitely.
