Trump Administration Signaling War With North Korea


The Trump Administration seems to want war with North Korea. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“President Trump “will take action” to protect against any threat from North Korea, according to National security adviser H.R. McMaster.

“[I]t’s clear that the president is determined not to allow this kind of capability to threaten the United States,” McMaster said on ABC’s “This Week,” adding, “And our president will take action that is in the best interest of the American people.”

McMaster didn’t offer any additional details, relaying that Trump doesn’t like to announce what he is going to do before he does it.”*

  1. N Korea hasn't had any wars since, yes murdering their own civilians, but have not been at war with anyone for years. America has been in a perpetual state of war since, even going as far as invading the Dominican Republic for their sugar 30+ years ago. Killing it's own civilians at a rate that matches war torn countries (poisoned water supplies, mass murders of deemed undesirables – blacks, Hispanics, gays, poor white etc, incredible overpricing of basic medical requirements, lack of educational needs in deprived areas, the systematic hierarchy structure to keep civilians in specific boxes etc etc etc), yet pretends to be a country above Korea…haha!!! Now I'm no fan of Korea, but as the saying goes, "clean up your own backyard before telling others what to do with theirs". How many more countries does America have to invade and destroy before it is deemed an actual human rights violator globally??? As a veteran, I see the trees for the forest. What does N Korea have that we really want, how much minerals and oil does it have (that has kept them self sustainable for so long), why does American Guberment constantly need so much from so many others, under the guise of dictators? What is the plan if they do topple Kim, who would they put in place to run the country and establish a democracy (pfft…barely have this in America itself…haha)? How would you change the views of millions of people who are indoctrinated and subservient to the regime, that they would just follow suit like Iraq, Afghan……. Americas version of international democracy is fear. It's convenient they dropped the MOAB just before puffing their chests out and talking shit about war with N Korea, this is called 'a show of force'.

  2. It's sad that humanity doesn't learn from past mistakes as well as I would have hoped! WW1 and 2 should have been enough! This whole thing is so hypocritical. The USA likes to police other sovereign nations on Nuclear weapons while the USA has almost double the nukes of all other nuclear power nations combined! Nuclear weapons should be abolished completely from every country not just a select few can play with the big toys!

  3. Spicer said look we tried the red line and look what that got us. — so i guess the Whitehouse is using a false flag attack to justify war escalation with North Korea.

  4. The Young Turks are under Israeli control. What makes this guy a madman? Staying to himself and trying to stave off continuous American aggression is such a horrible thing. You are being HEGELIAN dialect programmed. The Young Turks are the equal opposite reaction needed to prod you in the direction the POWER need us to be. Who on earth don't know America involvement in 9-11 YET they are paid to call you a crackpot. WAKE UP!!!

  5. The Bigly Shtick Doctrine — Assimilate or be Annihilated. No more Rogue Nations.
    America was great under H.W. Bush and the opportunity to forge a New World Order with 1000 points of light. "We must stay the course," H.W. Bush said. This is the return.

  6. N Korea are the biggest chihuahuas on the face of the planet. Too much talk, are you about war or about talk. The USA doesn't talk, USA does. USA has dropped atomic bombs, taken over countries, used MOABs etc. USA does what it says on the tin. Are N Korea about it or about yapping

  7. This bullshit rhetoric sounds just like the pack of lies we got flooded with in the run up to the Iraq war. How many more time will the world turn a blind eye to our bullying before they respond? We are making ourselves the biggest problem in the world and the world will not just sit back and take it forever. We need to stop electing the petty little people who just want a constant state of war.

  8. I just hope that internationally hackers manage to shut down all the missile of all their enemies, that would be a nice result of cyber warfare. No missiles ever hitting anything again.

  9. I know that your audience is mostly teens and young adults, but is it really that necessary to put the spongebob thing there? Don't you guys think it is just a little bit unprofessional? Respect everyone and you will receive respect, but offend someone and you will have to cope for whatever is to come to your biased channel

  10. wasnt procrastiation the main usa option to deal with north koreas nuclear weapons? now why isnt kim jong un in fear? the mighty usa procrastination power is on its way……oh how intimidating

  11. Does any anyone really believe that the Chinese and the Russians will fold to the USA a rogue nation / regime itself , to become puppets for the 1 %,and the US vision of a one world govt controlled and run by US corporations ??

  12. If the government is not going to start an impeachment process. maybe it is time people go to the steps of Washington and protest trump actions towards war and forget about protesting his goddamn taxes

  13. The American Presidency is just a diversionary position. The owner class picks the most controversial person to be president, to deflect as much attention as possible away from those who are actually in power. It's been this way since not long after the civil war.

  14. The day that we find out all the details of the horrors that North Korean citizens have been suffering for decades by the hands of their ruling class, we can't say 'we didn't know'. We know. We just don't care enough yet to go there and stop the insanity.
