President Trump's ham-fisted Twitter response to North Korea threat alienates China

Post  fatbob5 on Wed Sep 06, 2017 10:33 pm

Some of the greatest minds in Washington have for years tried to solve the North Korean conundrum.

Donald Trump's intellect can't be counted among them. That has not stopped him trying with potentially disastrous results.

Where carefully calibrated coordinated diplomacy is needed, he is using Twitter in a scattergun, contradictory manner that threatens a split with America's allies in the region when there has never been a greater need for unity.......

if other countries did not trade with north korea then they could not build nuclear weapons.
the threat to not trade with countries that do would concentrate the mind some what.
chinas trade with the US is worth about $650billion a year. It's trade with north korea is worth about $10billion.
china are the only ones who can really put any serious economic pressure on NK. They choose not to at the moment.
