    U.S. Politics: Next-ennials vs stamps

    Why do you think "corresponding measures" refers to the US denuclearizing? Since it's obviously never going to happen, it much more likely refers to easing up on the sanctions, stopping the joint war games with SK, or something along those lines.

    Why would the US need to denuclearize? Have you realized that it's the KOREAN peninsula we're talking about? It is ultimately the Korean people that need to work this out. Trump has played a large part in facilitating the stability and good relations in the region, now it's up to them. And the US chose to not take part in the discussions, remember? How you can twist that in your mind into Koreans bypassing the dumb Drumpf, is a mystery to me. Even more unfounded claims. The reason Trump cancelled the Pompeo visits is because there wasn't enough progress on denuclearization. The US wants more concrete steps taken in that direction. Kim has reportedly mentioned during talks with South Korean officials that he wants to achieve complete denuclearization during Trump's first term. Care to elaborate on all those amazing things the US has granted NK? Because as far as I can see, NK is still in the same shitty situation it has been for a while now. They continue to be outpaced by the rest of the world. The pressure is on them to open up, while the US has nothing to lose. Even if NK keeps the nukes but signs a peace treaty, how is that not better than having nukes and being at war? That is not a pyrrhic victory, that is a victory in its true sense, for the US, since that's one less nation they are at war with, but especially for all the Korean people since they no longer live under the threat of possibly being nuked to dust at any moment. There would be absolutely no reason to use those nukes once they have ended the war.

    Great news, for a change, probably missed by many: Kim Jong Un says Trump helped stabilize the region, sees more progress. New bilateral talks are happening between the two Koreas, with the first meeting taking place in Pyongyang. And we have even better news today: North Korea agrees to close its missile test site and dismantle its main nuclear facility North and South Korea also intend to file a joint bid to host the 2032 Olympics. This is the least war-like and unstable the Korean peninsula has been in a very long time and I continue to be optimistic. I can't wait to be ridiculed and lectured on how Trump got played by Kim so hard.
  4. No, it's the other way around. To me, accusations without evidence are not enough reason to deny someone from the highest court in land. Is she a liar? I don't know. She could be telling the turth. But I'd rather stick to innocent until proven guilty, because the opposite leads down a dangerous path.
  5. When did I say that? I said investigate him, and condemn him AFTER you have evidence. Seriously, what the hell is up with people constantly strawmanning on this forum? Can you try reading again what I wrote? That's your opinion. "Lie"? Again, you're already assuming he is guilty. Oh, I don't know, what incentive could she possibly have? I can't think of anything... I haven't seen anyone defend Kavanaugh because of "no penetration" or "boys will be boys", but the fact that it happened (allegedly) so long ago is a valid issue to bring up. And let's not pretend it's only the evil conservative media mentioning it: even the Wall Street Journal realizes this has all the earmarks of a calculated political ambush. Higher standard than what? Being accused of something without proof? Give me a break...
  6. What are you suggesting? That we should consider him guilty, because it's hard to find evidence in this situation, so let's just trust the words of the accuser? Again, thank god you're not a judge.
  7. Thank god you're not a judge, if you consider that enough proof.
  8. I don't disagree with that. Investigate all you want. But don't call him a rapist before he is proven guilty, nor call others rape apologists for refusing to condemn him before we have evidence. Which is what @Bonnot OG has done.
  9. Your shameful behaviour is what's disgusting. Rape apologism for not condemning a man without any evidence he is guilty? How about you prove he is guilty first?

    Calm your hysteria and think for a second. Go look up the demographic trends. Whites will become a minority by about 2031. And we all know that current minorities overwhelmingly vote for the Democrats. Even the most red states like Texas will turn blue fairly soon. Do you honestly think Republicans can stay in power when the majority of the voting population is non-white?

    Maybe a good NAFTA deal, and a positive resolution to the trade war with China, but I'm not optimistic about either.

    I said no such thing. Trump's approval seems to have an upper limit of about 44-45%. He would need a major victory to rise above that. Recently, his approval has certainly taken a hit. According to RCP, he's still at 41.5 though, so I wouldn't jump the gun and declare this a catastrophy for Republicans. It's not looking good for them, but there's still time. Trump needs to deliver on his promises if he wants to have a succesful midterm for the Republicans.

    *sigh* How do people still not understand Trump's strategy regarding North Korea? Your hatred for Trump is clouding your judgment. This is not a failure of Trump. He's done this before. NK wants these mettings to happen, as evidenced by their official statements. Trump has the upper hand here, and he is pressuring them to hurry up with the denuclearization. How can you percieve this as bad news for Trump? Remember when everyone who hates Trump was laughing that NK insulted Pence and Trump cancelled the summit? Remember how that turned out? Trump pulled out of the summit, forcing NK to come to the table, and it worked perfectly. This is more of the same. NK is going to take further steps to make sure the mettings resume, and everything will be back on track.

    He deserves no sympathy. He's a warmonger, responsible for a lot of suffering. And if he had his way, even more innocent people would have suffered and died. Would you give him the same sympathy, while looking in the eyes of the family members of the countless victims of pointless wars that McCain is so fond of? The world will be a better place without him.

    Hmmm, only 16 percent of democrats think it's possible for Obama to have been a good president? Interesting.
