Former Chairman To The Joint Chiefs Of Staff: U.S. And North Korea Are Closer To A Nuclear War 'Than We Have Ever Been'

CNN: Former Joint Chiefs chairman: Nuclear war with North Korea closer than ever

The United States is "closer to a nuclear war with North Korea" than ever before, Adm. Mike Mullen, a former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Sunday, adding that he does not "see the opportunities to solve this diplomatically at this particular point."

If there is a pattern emerging in Trump's approach to things, I think it would include a couple things:

1. Face the problems you said you would address.

2. Don't keep doing the same things that have been done while expecting a different result.

It is a starkly anti-establishment approach. It is not surprising that Mullen, with a pale face, does not buy into it.

Why the hell Obama isn't being toasted over the current status quo is mind numbing.
Trump is right, whist this situation goes back prior to 94, it was Obama who was on watch when the u.s needed to be assertive and pro active.
