Plus a lot of them.

NB: They have frickin' lasers.

The ZM-87 Portable Laser Disturber is a Chinese electro-optic countermeasure neodymium laser device. The ZM-87 was primarily intended to blind humans but was also reported to damage the photo-electric elements in laser rangefinders, videocameras and missile seekers. Roughly 22 of the devices were produced by the company Norinco before production ceased in 2000 as a result of the 1995 United Nations Protocol on Blinding Laser Weapons ban.

The ZM-87 is notable as one of only a few laser weapons ever produced. Controversy has also surrounded the possible recent use of the weapon by Russian, Chinese, and North Korean armed forces

BRIDGEWATER, N.J. -- President Trump delivered his "fire and fury" threat to North Korea on Tuesday with arms folded, jaw set and eyes flitting on what appeared to be a single page of talking points set before him on the conference table at his New Jersey golf resort.

The piece of paper, as it turned out, was a fact sheet on the opioid crisis he had come to talk about, and his ominous warning to Pyongyang was entirely improvised, according to several people with direct knowledge of what unfolded. In discussions with advisers beforehand, he had not run the specific language by them.

The inflammatory words quickly escalated the confrontation with North Korea to a new, alarming level and were followed shortly by a new threat from North Korea to obliterate an American air base on Guam. In the hours since, the president's advisers have sought to calm the situation, with Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson assuring Americans that they "should sleep at night" without worrying about an imminent war.

Neither camp advocated language like "fire and fury," according to the people involved. Among those taken by surprise, they said, was John F. Kelly, the retired four-star Marine general who has just taken over as White House chief of staff and has been with the president at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J., for his working vacation.

The president had been told about a Washington Post story on North Korea's progress in miniaturizing nuclear warheads so that they could fit on top of a ballistic missile, and was in a bellicose mood, according to a person who spoke with him before he made the statement. His team assumed that he would be asked about North Korea during a scheduled media appearance tied to his opioid meeting, but Mr. Trump had not mentioned his comment during a conference call beforehand that focused on North Korea.

Women can't be president because of PMS and they are super duper emotional.

So has Kelly just now realised the magnitude of insanity he's pledged to keep under control?

A story told by an idiot, full of fire and fury, signifying nothing.

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and really every day if you think about it, but nobody talks about it.

lmao at the leftist dummies who tried to say Trump was the peace/isolationist candidate
tbf if you just go by the things he says that demonstrate the point you want to make, you can find support for basically any characterization of him!

constitutional republican democracy produced a leader as qualified as a family run dictatorship
for the sake of my sanity, i need to reiterate this as often as possible: they put a system in place to prevent a dumb terrible populist demagogue from becoming president and it backfired. lmao.

Folks,

There is an opportunity here for Trump to improve his polling figures and secure a second term. But, will he go for it?  :devil3:

Hard to say.

It's maybe mitigated by the fact that Trump (a) doesn't listen to much outside advice, especially not ambassadors, and (b) doesn't have a coherent, stable foreign policy that can be explained to someone else.

Yes, this fits with the best option for NK in the case of a US attack. An immediate ground invasion of South Korea.

I'd like to think "fire and fury" was an subconscious allusion to "sound and fury", from Macbeth: "It is a tale / Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury / Signifying nothing."
