Trump has been wondering for months why a “nation of samurais” like Japan didn’t just shoot down North Korean missiles.
The Japan Times reported, “Trump questioned Japan’s decision not to shoot down the missiles when he met or spoke by phone with leaders from Southeast Asian countries over recent months to discuss how to respond to the threats from North Korea, the sources said. The U.S. president said he could not understand why a country of samurai warriors did not shoot down the missiles, the sources said.”
Shooting down the missiles is a no-win situation. If Japan tried to shoot down the missiles and failed, it would humiliate the Japanese and embolden North Korea. If Japan successfully shot down the missiles, it would be viewed by North Korea as an act of war and escalate the conflict.
Only an idiot, or in Rex Tillerson terms, a moron would try to shoot down the missiles.
Donald Trump might be the dumbest and most dangerous man ever to occupy the White House. If this is the thought process of the President is not a matter of if, but when one of his reckless actions gets the United States into another war.
The moron president is abroad, and every word he speaks makes the world a little dumber, and a whole lot less safe.
