Trump Doesn’t Have the Authority to Attack North Korea Without Congress | The Atlantic

“[The North Korean] regime has signaled its contempt for its neighbors, for all members of the United Nations, and for minimum standards of acceptable international behavior,” President Donald Trump said Tuesday morning. “All options are on the table.”

One option that should not be on the table is a “preventive” American military strike against North Korea without United Nations approval, public debate, and a congressional authorization.

[Ed.: As a resident of a city on the West Coast of North America, a pre-emptive strike to disable North Korea’s nuclear capabilities before he nukes LA, San Francisco or Seattle may be absolutely necessary to prevent this. It’s clear that Kim Jong-un is mentally ill and could (once they have reliable rocket technology) decide to prove that he has a functional nuclear arsenal by taking out a city on the United States west coast.

The Atlantic is a liberal, elitist organization that would probably change their tune if they lived on the Left Coast and could be nuked into oblivion by a mad man with a bad ‘do. They probably think I refer to the President of the United States but it’s just because they hate Trump so much. It’s sad that they abhor an overtly patriotic president who believes in the superiority of the USA. Oh do they miss our former Supreme Leader Obama. Makes me chuckle down deep inside.

The one thing you can’t say about Trump is that he doesn’t care about the United States – in fact, he may indeed get us into war with North Korea, but it’d be because he cares too much; even about states that didn’t vote for him.]

Since then, the final resting place of the ship has been a mystery, until Friday. Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen announced that a team onboard his research vessel Petrel located the ship over 18,000 feet below the surface of the Pacific Ocean.
