    What About North Korea?

    Let's have a thread dedicated to this rather than make it part of a Trump thread.

    This is a sober, thoughtful piece by David French, a smart conservative:

    Into the Abyss: A Scenario for the Next Korean War

    Money quote:

    The Trump administration has to grow up, fast. The president can’t issue threats without consulting with military leaders. He shouldn’t confront one of the most serious American foreign-policy challenges since the end of the Cold War with a skeleton diplomatic crew. He cannot be impulsive. He has to listen. He has to be sober-minded. And his trio of generals must rise to the occasion. Maybe not now, maybe not tomorrow, but soon enough, fateful decisions will be made. May those decisions be wise. Millions of lives hang in the balance.

    "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye."
    --Antoine de Saint-Exupery

    "Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold."
    --Yeats

    “True, we [lawyers] build no bridges. We raise no towers. We construct no engines. We paint no pictures - unless as amateurs for our own principal amusement. There is little of all that we do which the eye of man can see. But we smooth out difficulties; we relieve stress; we correct mistakes; we take up other men's burdens and by our efforts we make possible the peaceful life of men in a peaceful state.”

    --John W. Davis, founder of Davis Polk & Wardwell

    They are the voice of reason because they are propping up this guy. They could cut him at the knees any time they want. He's not threatening them as a result and wouldn't be in power without them. They were so scared a friendly nation to the US would be on their border that they would rather have this guy's family instead. And they are happy to protect this family and their regime. Jesus.
