Briefing tomorrow of the entire Senate at the White House (technically nearby), an extremely unusual site, with the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of State. Trump may "drop by." Today being the 85th anniversary of the founding of the North Korean army, provocations were expected, but no missile launches or nuclear tests took place.

So is tomorrow when we issue our self-justification for military strikes against North Korea? Japan is supporting our rhetoric, South Korea's caretaker government has been silent.

Again, I am not sure that something shouldn't be done about North Korea. I am profoundly dubious about our ability to effect long-term change for the better, and do not think that we should act unilaterally. China and Russia, at least will oppose action, and I suspect that many more nations will, as well. Trump's not exactly great about rallying support for any cause but his own glorification.

Ideally, we'd be offering NK a path to a) not being humiliated b) rejoining the global community c) trading nuke tech for things like food or energy.

Clinton and Obama had slight moves towards this, though you never know what is going on that's not public. Has the Trump admin made anything other than "we'll fucking punish everyone with our mighty sword why does everyone laugh at our mighty sword"? I'd hope so, but not seeing any indiction they're doing anything than trying to push an unstable tyrant into a corner. And NK, too.

What a journey.
I'd think Germany would be ideal to sit down with Korea and discuss how to come back together.

I've not been worried/concerned about many other areas ... but NK seems to be a real issue.

We should keep in mind we've still been doing bad shit. I think Obama will always regret he didn't put more into shutting Guantanamo down: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/may/10/guantanamo-detainee-abu-zubaydah-cia-torture-hearing

(And before you say, "Of course, that's one source, and he must be a terrorist", please note that numerous internationally sanctioned reports have seen similar.)

He promised he's shut down Gitmo "on day one".... crickets.

Yes, I said that was a disappointment -- both for us and I'm sure for him. He did try, but I'll leave it as an exercise for the reader to look up who blocked it. (Though since Obummer was a "dictator" as well as a "socialist" and "communist" and "Muslim radical", I wonder why he didn't just make it happen on his own.)

My sympathies to the people of London who, for whatever reason, now seem to be on the front line of the war with extremism.

It's because they want to influence the election. Don't vote Fear. Gutting the NHS will kill way more people than ISIS could.

There is no way that the U.K. government is not going to require phone makers to give them decryption keys now.

Oh, yep, this is the beginning of the end of internet privacy. The sad thing is that this won't stop any halfway competent organization (this rules out the NSA) that can run encryption software. We're always willing to sacrifice freedom for security. Always.

Good job, far right. Yeah, they "hate us for our freedoms".

I bet these are people who also are prideful about their christianity, at least in contrast to moooooslims.

Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.

Give me your well-off, your wealthy, your Caucasian elites earning tax free.

And did Sadiq Khan piss on Donald's cornflakes in a past life? Or is this just a Trump "bash a towelhead" twitter tantrum?
