    He didn't say we will nuke North Korea. We would of course nuke anyone threatening to nuke us.

    He said he wouldn't rule out a military option for Venezuela. We have contingency plans for just about every possibility.

    Oh, I see. I guess I (and everyone else) misinterpreted that whole "fire and fury the likes no one in the world has ever seen" thing.

    Let me know when he's obliterated a pharmaceutical plant in Sudan or bombed some Serbs.

    Supposing Hillary had won the election, I wonder how Kizmet would be suggesting that Hillary respond to the Norks nuking Guam, blowing up Seoul or something like that. Presumably we would respond like Angela Merkel or our darling Canadians, wringing our hands, saying "What the North Koreans did is so wrong!" and demanding a sharply worded condemnation from the UN. (That would show Kim Jong Un that we mean business!)

    He said he wouldn't rule out a military option for Venezuela. We have contingency plans for just about every possibility.
    I think that it's correct for the US to not remove the military option from the game board. Make Caracas have to make all of their moves in the assumption that its there.

    But having said that, I wouldn't welcome a US military intervention in Venezuela. I don't really anticipate Trump doing that, even if all the establishment Republican "neo-cons" would be screaming for it. The Trump doctrine is clearly against foreign adventures in "nation-building".

    Let Venezuela figure out Venezuela, not have the United States impose some Washington DC dictated solution on them.

    If there has to be a foreign intervention, maybe the Canadians or the European Union will do the heavy lifting on this one. (Don't hold your breath.)

    I have no military experience of any sort although I don't really know if that matters. I'm not sure that someone who was a private in the army is any more knowledgeable than an average citizen when it comes to thinking about starting a war. In any case, I haven't made any suggestions about what Trump should do. I'm not sure that trading threats with a madman is constructive but perhaps you disagree. As for hypotheticals regarding Clinton, I'm not even sure why you're bringing it up. I've stated repeatedly that I didn't like her as a candidate. I think Trump apologists need to stop looking backwards at the election. Trump won. Why do Trumpeters keep bringing up Clinton? She's irrelevant at this point.
