The point being missed here is that Trump will not be the one negotiating with anyone, he will leave that minutiae to those in the DepState whose job it is to negotiate. He will give them a framework of what he will bottom line accept and demand in an agreement
That's not negotiating, that is dictating. Dictating is failure. ergo tRump is failure. Kim has nukes and never gives them up, just as tRump dictates. Same as he dictates to Iran. Same as shrub dictated to Iraq.

MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) — The death toll from the most powerful bomb blast witnessed in Somalia’s capital rose to 231 with more than 275 injured, making it the deadliest single attack ever in this Horn of Africa nation, a senator said Sunday.

Abshir Abdi Ahmed cited doctors at hospitals he had visited in Mogadishu. Many of the bodies in mortuaries had not yet been identified, he said. Officials feared the toll would continue to climb from Saturday’s truck bomb that targeted a busy street near key ministries.

Doctors struggled to assist horrifically wounded victims, many burned beyond recognition. “The hospital is overwhelmed by both dead and wounded,” said Dr. Mohamed Yusuf, the director of Medina hospital. “This is really horrendous, unlike any other time in the past.”

Ambulance sirens echoed across the city as bewildered families wandered in the rubble of buildings, looking for missing relatives. “In our 10 year experience as the first responder in #Mogadishu, we haven’t seen anything like this,” the Aamin Ambulance service tweeted.

Grief overwhelmed many.

“There’s nothing I can say. We have lost everything,” wept Zainab Sharif, a mother of four who lost her husband. She sat outside a hospital where he was pronounced dead after hours of efforts by doctors to save him.

You mean like Iraq? The only question now is: Will Trump be as stupid as Bush?

He has already demonstrated he is more stupid. He is ordering DPRK and now Iran to build nukes.

It blows my mind how much cigarettes cost. I had no idea it was that expensive. Is it just the last couple decades that prices have gone up so much due to tobacco taxes?
When I gave up in 2007 they were £5 now they are £11. Mainly budget tax increaeses.

Tax rises

I'm thinking a pack back in 1989 was $1.65. That was retail. But I had a friend that bought them at the Onondaga reservation for $10.00 dollars a carton. That was a lot of cash back then. I wonder what that would be in 2017 dollars now with inflation?

Knew someone would bring it up ... bought on the reservation they don't have state taxes on them, or at least didn't. Seems SCOTUS thinks state taxes trump treaties.

Now that you have had a couple days, I'll tell you how Mom quit smoking and that was the hard way. That is sitting in the waiting room with a sign "Cancer cures smoking" while getting radiation treatments.

Looking at all the posts/threads on this, no one has denied that. My point is that NOTHING has occurred that enables you to vent & seek his murder. Amazing to see SUCH a small country scare the BIG Stars & Stripes.

Many thought that when India & Pakistan got nukes, it would start. So far all that has been seen is "conventional skirmishes".

We agree to disagree regarding killing a murderer to stop the murder of millions of Jews, Gypsies, 'Inferiors', et al.
They got those in North Korea?

You would swear he is talking about THEM!

Hi betreger...

Your thoughts regarding my Third Option, which neither includes a Pre Emptive Strike nor allowing Maniac Kim to continue his terrorizing the world into silence and submission.

Methinks Trump does not know how to negotiate that sort of deal with China.

methinks you need empathy to negotiate.

North Korea Two:

What has to be done to stop Maniac Kim from terrorizing the World into silence and submission to his whims.
Stop Pissing him off!

What must be done to neutralize Maniac Kim's ability to murder millions.
shrub already happened and tRump is happening. They would have to be reversed!

So you're saying that the biggest humanitarian aid provided by practically every decent country in the world would still not be enough to prevent 90% of your country suffering?

That's the fear he wants to spread so he can slap on the most restrictive shackle of a dictatorship with tRump as dictator for life.

Major they might be right, but it is a two step process.
1) Drop state, become territory.
2) Territory becomes independent.

As you know through history territories have come and gone so this process has precedent.
The question mark is can a state drop statehood?

In the civil war the states took a different route, declare independence, and that path is closed.

The more interesting issue with Calexit is likely the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. California might revert to Mexico. Might that apply to Texit? ;-)

For EMP to destroy it needs an antenna. The longer the antenna the more destructive energy. So a chip with a lead 1/10 inch long as antenna will not have enough voltage on it to blow! However a power grid with many hundreds of miles of antenna will have issues.

BTW remember your body is water and salt, a conductor hence an antenna. How are you going to fare in EMP?

But again, the Russian Federation and China can do this, so why the sudden fake fear? Do your masters want to put more shackles on you?

However I seriously question the statement that and EMP would kill 90 percent of "all Americans" within a year.". I think we are more resilient and tougher than that. A much higher percentage would survive, and DPRK will have ceased to exist in this mortal plane.
He did quote the "Washington Examiner" after all, owner Philip Anschutz, so it is just another Soros like outlet. So yes the 90% is BS intended to scare you so his investments in defense contractors make more money.
Sorry... Absolutely Incorrect Accusation.
TOTALLY CORRECT.

If this was something, then you would have been terrified for the last few decades. After all the U.S.S.R. did actual nuke EMP tests. Obviously the Russian Federation and China are capable of this and a lot more. So why aren't you quaking in you boots and staying in your bomb shelter? Is it because you know it is crap just like the partisans who called these muppets to testify so the Washington Examiner could blast it out the the fearful and paralyze you into accepting additional shackles?

What's all this about the power grid being knocked out for a long period. Not going to happen, most of the grid would be back up and functioning within 5 hours.

There will be some damage but not a total melt down or all wire in the street (Puerto Rico).
So is this why tRump wants to pull FEMA from PR?

Oct. 13 (UPI) -- Scientists have measured the amounts of greenhouse gas released by worms and clams in the Baltic Sea and the results are surprising.

Researchers estimate polychaetes and bivalves account for 10 percent of the Baltic Sea's methane emissions -- roughly the amount of methane released by 20,000 dairy cows.

Though not as ubiquitous as carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, methane's heat-trapping greenhouse effect is 28 times more potent than that of CO2.

"What is puzzling is that the Baltic Sea makes up only about 0.1 percent of Earth's oceans, implying that globally, apparently harmless bivalve animals at the bottom of the world's oceans may in fact be contributing ridiculous amounts of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere that is unaccounted for," Ernest Chi Fru, a researcher at Cardiff University in Wales, said in a news release.

Authorities are investigating the cause of a derailed Union Pacific freight train in Lincoln Heights after five rail cars carrying automobiles derailed early Friday.

The derailment was reported at approximately 4:10 a.m. in the 700 block of South Lamar Street near the San Antonio Winery.

The incident will not interfere with commutes since the derailment was in the Union Pacifc Railroad Yard, according to Justin Jacobs, a representative for Union Pacifc Railroad.

No injuries, fires or hazards were reported.

President Trump is throwing a bomb into the insurance marketplaces created under the Affordable Care Act, choosing to end critical payments to health insurers that help millions of lower-income Americans afford coverage. The decision coincides with an executive order on Thursday to allow alternative health plans that skirt the law’s requirements.

Ang, lovely porn, but ... it brings up a bug! Sorry for the OT, but Firefox 56.0 on Mac OS X 10.12.6 does not display the image. However Firefox 56.0 on Windows 7 SP1 does. I'm sure you can find the right person to pass this on to so your food porn reaches everyone. ;)

Well, on Mac OS X, El Capitan, 10.11.4, and FF 56 64-Bit, the image shows up just fine... Perhaps there's an issue in Sierra??? (I hope not...)


TL
Might be a server side parse issue. Images not being the only thing inside a [ quote ] BBCode tag work fine. I didn't bother and view source to see what was returned as this thread is a bit long.
