“Hey Morph, thanks for commenting on my thread and I hope you don't have any hard feelings over my trying to make sense of this guy and how far a US president can go without congress consent and if he disreguards congress and goes beyond what is specified in the constitution won't he be liable for the deaths and destruction he caused being commander and chief, who in his anger unleashes horrific suffering. And wouldn't he be brought up before some type of world court? “
Of course theres no hard feeings! I can very much understand how people who didnt support or vote for trump feel very ambivalent regarding choices he makes. For the record i didnt vote for him either. Im just trying to look at this logically and judge his actions on merit (or lack there of)....
on the premise of attacking North korea, its really tough. You have to be willing to meet them with force if necessary but as i and many others have already said its a bad bad situation for south korea (an ally) and china (north koreas ally). Its in everyones interests to see things calm down.
And lastly on the matter of the USA losing ‘supremacy’... i have never viewed the US as a world power through might. Its always been innovation and relative freedom. People want to come here for those reasons. Im reminded of a poignant statement:
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
