    The way Trump is going I often wonder if he has in mind provoking a major conflict. So “He” can step in, solve the problem, and take the credit.

    That is quite possible Byran. I would not exclude the possibility. However, the Iran – Israel conflict has been smoldering for a number of years. Now that the ISIS situation is no longer demanding attention Iran now has time to turn its attention to Israel. I would suggest that has more to do with the situation than Trump has.

    One would have thought that with a peace conference in the planning stage the US would have postponed the military exercise with South Korea instead of proceeding and thus annoying the North Koreans.

    Sadly we have this Christian element in the US who are determined to bring about Armageddon and expect the Rapture to whisk them off the planet before its destruction unfolds
    Wonder if Trump is being manipulated by those scum
    Or maybe he is a believer ?//

    Makes one wonder at just what is going on??

    I agree Hero. I was under the impression that the USA were considering postponing the military exercises until after the meeting with the possible view to cancelling them.

    freemind, even without any assistance from “this Christian element” we are fast moving to a situation that could be called Armageddon. Remember, Armageddon is a Christian concept and not Jewish.’

    If you study relationships in the Middle East it becomes very clear that Iran is on a collision path with Israel. The Iranian Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, has called for the nihilation of the Jewish people. This hatred of the Jews goes back thousands of years.

    And remember, the alternative name for Khamenei is The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution. Khamenei’s desire is for a Islamic world.

    The press reports I have seen reported that the North had agreed that the exercise could go ahead. I wonder if there has been a change of heart and the North want a reason to call it off without “Loosing Face”.

    Trumps speech and actions are by no means Christian. In fact,his words and actions are anything but Christian!Read the New Testament,read for yourself what Jesus said. I think that you will find that Jesus Christ and Donald Trump have nothing in common.

    Yes ,
    Makes one wonder at the intelligence of Believers
    Prayers Prayers

    But No more .
    Wonder how many prayers wafted towards the Heavens during the Holocaust and other tragic events throughout history without achieving any response from on high

    Personally think this assumed wisdom in the sky is enjoying the carnage .

    Just as an encouragement and in response to your post on Politics Today Freemind.  You are correct, I would have thought there would have been a considerable amount of chatter on these pages in respect to Trump’s meeting with Kim, but nary a word I find.

    Predictably the Left Wing media are claiming Trump was trumped by Kim. That he gave away ground and gained nothing in return. Now that is an interesting position. Still, the media are not known for accuracy, they have a bad habit of interviewing their keyboards.

    Given the way Trump is managing the situation with North Korea raised the question; How would Hillary have managed it? I do not know but no doubt there are some who could enlighten me.
