And this has ...  what to do with ... whose "head rolling"  ?  :dunno:

Or is this now the official Dave Hawkins Mindlessly Rebroadcasts The Latest From The Conservative Play Pen thread?
This is "ever hopeful Dave" hoping that the Darwin debased Minds here will one day wake up and realize how stupid they have been in their assessment of Donald Trump.
My assessment of Donald Trump is capable of allowing that he may not be a total failure in everything he touches. Particularly regarding Korea.  That doesn't make him anything like a good thing. Also, all you've done is posted an infographic with a hypothesis.
I cannot think of a better hypothesis. Can you?

Yep. I can.

NK has sunk huge resources into their testing facility but can't keep testing nukes at their Mt. Mantap facility because too many previous tests too close to the surface in unsuitable geology have made the entire mountain unstable. Any further test risks blowing the entire top off the mountain and spreading radioactive disaster across a very wide area including parts of neighbouring countries. Add to that that further tunneling in that shattered rock would be very dangerous and very expensive.

So NK has a big problem, they need to keep testing to keep that sabre rattling but they can't test coz they've stuffed their mountain.

But never fear, along comes Trump on his white charger and gives them the perfect opportunity to turn that enormous problem into an opportunity. Now they can stop the testing and maintain the high ground by claiming to have totally forced concessions and been totally conciliatory and totally won.

Well done Trump. 8d chess in action.

My speculation seems far more logical to me than yours and is actually supported by known fact. Got any actual argument and reason which makes yours more likely?


While there is some truth in what you write, it is definitely an exaggeration to say too many previous tests too close to the surface in unsuitable geology have made the entire mountain unstable. Any further test risks blowing the entire top off the mountain and spreading radioactive disaster across a very wide area

According to informed analysis:

Nuclear tests previously conducted at the US Nevada Test Site (as well as at the former Soviet nuclear test sites) show that test-induced seismic events (small post-test earthquakes), associated with tests having magnitudes of 5.0 or more, are not unusual. Moreover, such activity did not lead to site abandonment prior to the general test moratorium in 1992. Because Mt. Mantap has been the location for the last five of six of North Korea's declared underground nuclear tests (via the North Portal) and has undergone widespread observable surface disturbances resulting from the most recent test, it is not surprising that there were a number of post-test earthquakes. This may have caused some concern both inside and outside North Korea about "Tired Mountain Syndrome." For the time being, however, given the presence of additional test portals, we see no reason that the Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Site as a whole has or will be abandoned for future underground nuclear testing.

There may be some concern about collapse of the tunnels, but blowing the top off the mountain is wildly inaccurate.

pretty much right about people on the Obama team using unethical means to try to keep him from getting elected and for trying to remove him from Office once elected.
::)
Your wanting to believe that bullshit is still all the "vindication" you can offer.

The real threat to free speech is people saying mean things on Twitter to Bari Weiss and Bret Stephens.

I like the style that is just long enough to be below your hips, and nice and full, 'swingy'.

Yeah but I love that coat.  :ohmy:
Me too! I'd wear a coat like that if only I could lose weight.  :crai:

Don't deprive yourself - find a proper 50s style Swing Coat with a similar theme and wear it with joy. Or find a pattern and some great fabric and make one or have a seamstress make one.

There are some on this page, the ones that widen as soon as they hit mid-bust. They're very flattering on full figures, especially with jeans or leggings.

That doesn't make yours true. This is why you suck at science.

Huh?
Don't you worry your little head over it, dave.

Have you figured out yet that "Peoples_Pundit" lied to you?
That you're rebroadcasting Fake News like the useful idiot that you are?
no. It appears to me that Trump and Fox News have been pretty much right all along.
pretty much right...about what?
Dave?
pretty much right about people on the Obama team using unethical means to try to keep him from getting elected and for trying to remove him from Office once elected.
Have you figured out that you were misinformed about the charges against Manafort and Gates? Have you figured out the source of that misinformation?
