Obama is not the President, Trump is. This is ALL happening on "his watch" now.

Kim has an insatiable desire to be in the spotlight.

North Korea is at a high latitude and his bird will never achieve polar orbit where it can hit anywhere in the world. In polar orbit the Earth rotates under the missile as the bird orbits. CNN is junk news.
Yep.
Gee, I guess there is a difference between saying "everywhere in the world" and saying everywhere in the world.

I wonder why he didn't say anywhere in the world?

North Korea fires missile that shows it can hit 'everywhere in the world'

North Korea issued a direct challenge to President Donald Trump with the launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that Defense Secretary James Mattis said demonstrates it has the ability to hit "everywhere in the world."

Pyongyang launched a Hwasong-14 missile in the early hours of Wednesday morning local time that flew higher, and demonstrated a longer range, than any of its previous tests.

It was the first missile fired in almost two months, and came despite Trump's repeated warnings, delivered again during this trip to South Korea earlier this month in a direct message to North Korea: "do not try us."

The missile launched Wednesday spent around 53 minutes in the air, reaching a height of up to 4,500 kilometers (2,800 miles), before splashing down in waters around 210 kilometers (130 miles) west of Japan's Aomori prefecture, according to authorities in Japan and South Korea.

Hours after the launch, Trump sounded more restrained, telling reporters Tuesday at the White House that the US "will handle" the situation. "We will take care of it," the President said, adding later that North Korea "is a situation that we will handle."

Mattis, who was with Trump in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, outlined how much tougher that situation has become. The test missile, he said, went "higher, frankly, than any previous shot they have taken" and demonstrates that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un now has the ability to hit "everywhere in the world basically."

"The bottom line is, it's a continued effort to build a threat -- a ballistic missile threat that endangers world peace, regional peace and certainly the United States," Mattis concluded

Now what? We shake our fists and denounce the guy. Ultimately, we sit down at the table and negotiate with him - which is what he wants and what he will get. Take him off the terrorist list and slap him on the back and tell him how great he is. Then we can all sit around the campfire, join hands, and sing Kum Bah Yah.

Why goodness, that would be just AWFUL, so terrible for a possible nuclear war to be averted and tensions eased.

The president has a LOT on his plate, Sister?? Gosh, who knew that being president could be so hard?

How long should we give the fool a break? One year? Two? Four? Eight?

When does "the break" end? I think Trump has already exceeded his "break". He's an inept, ignorant, reckless, unethical, immoral, insulting dolt.
Thanks from titan

So the long range ICBMs and the powerful hydrogen bomb are 100% the Republican President's fault obviously.

If the "good" economy is 100 percent his, so is this.

I don't have any feelings whether it's a good thing or a bad thing. All it boils down to is people putting on a smoke and mirrors show when we already know what's going to happen.

It's like watching Trump over at World Wrestling Entertainment all over again.

Well now, how about some of you geopolitical geniuses tell us how to handle it. Obama kicked this and Iran down the road for the next guy so tell me what should our current president do let them continue make a deal, what.

No worries. DJT said, "Do not try us."

Kim just tried us.

Stay tuned.
