We have troops present everywhere in the world they aren't needed, it's what we do. China knows that. And troops would play an insignificant role in the South China Sea dispute anyway. More or less is inconsequential to China's plans.

Our military presence in Asia is a greater irritant to the Chinese than you realize.

Read this. It gives you some idea of the extent of our talks with China:

We got our 3 hostages from North Korea and Stormy Daniels is set to release her latest film "30 seconds in Pyongyang". Coincidence? I think NOT!

The Chinese already have their own people in NK, now, to do just that. No American Special Forces are needed.

Chinese only care about our Navy. As they should.

Which is best case, worst case is some sort of conflict to disable the capability, which is not far fetched. But if he gives up his nukes, makes a deal with the USA that opens up trade, money, investment, and opens his society to the west....heís a hero. Also a very rich hero, and he gets the connection to the west that he supposedly craves. Itís widely rumored that he attended a western university under a false identity, I donít think he hates our society like many think.
yes, much like the iran deal.
lift the sanctions so they can make tons of $$ to support their war/military.

I think that N. Korea furthering their nuclear intentions would push China away. At some point they can't continue to back up a loony with the ability to deliver a nuclear weapon regionally or globally. I also think Kim is smart enough to know that. He's gotten everyone's attention with his testing, now he's going to leverage that position for other gains.

China owns NK. It makes for a good proxy.

In real life, (IRL), it's pretty rare to hear someone speak in mocking or trolling fashion, looking for a fight. When it does occur, it's usually accompanied by plenty of alcohol and/or mental illness. People holding signs and screaming on street corners kind of thing. People tend to move away from such people in a hurry. It also occurs in mob situations, like marches and rallies.

But on boards like this, you have people who cowardly toss insults and call names that they'd never say face-to-face. I've recently been called a pussy by someone who would never dare say it to my face in a 1000 years. Also have had all kinds of weird, made up stories posted about myself, all by cowards hiding in secure bunkers w plenty of guns and liquid courage handy.

So yeah, this garbage belongs in PARF.
This from one of the top 2 or 3 obscenity and insult slingers on PARF. Nice.

There are people that make an attempt at discussion and I have no problem with them, whether I agree with their politics or not. Then there are people that make no attempt at discussing a topic.
Many threads that I might be interested posting in, have already been hijacked by the petty arguments of a few. This has driven away the serious posters, and made it a poo flinging contest, which I won't participate in.

I guess if it was a light skinned brother in mom jeans with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth that got these guys released more people would've been happy about it.

Nope, started as a political slashing job, could have just said a win for America but he had to drop his pants and take a Drumph (correct spelling: Drumpf).

Posted in this forum by mistake, or posted in this forum on purpose to yank some chains. Either way the moderators should correct the situation.

I have to disagree with you, which should come as no surprise. It's factually accurate and does not in anyway condemn past presidents or anyone else

It can't be a political slashing job, in your words, because it simply doesn't attack anybody. Your Trump derangement syndrome predicates you to think otherwise. God forbid something good should happen and somebody gives Trump the credit for it.

Quit being a partisan hack and just be happy that something good happened in the world yesterday.

He will change right after peace in the middle east, or the sun becomes a red giant and eats the earth. I suspect the sun will become a red giant first.
