It doesn't surprise me that the Russians would advocate talks to resolve the crisis.  They used talks rather skillfully to achieve a useless ceasefire in Syria that they eventually broke.  Russians typically use it to play for time.

Given Chinese statements about how they 'will not allow' a war on the Korean peninsula I'm beginning to wonder if the US shouldn't just announce that as far as they're concerned North Korea is a province of China, and that any nuclear attack on the US from North Korea will be taken as an attack by China and will receive the appropriate retaliation AGAINST China.

In other words if LA goes, so does Shanghai.

Oh now a comment like that from Trump would really calm the Asian waters wouldn't it. :D
I think he has already done enough to **** off his strongest ally with any real clout in the region.

The South Koreans? Because the Chinese are most definitely not America's ally I any sense of the word.

China, number one US trading partner, South Korea, number 12. Money talks, bullshit walks.

Actually not a bad idea. If there were repping on here I'd rep that post.

Another noteworthy post. Keep them coming.
Trump - Watch what he does, not how he says it.
