McMaster Rattles Saber at North Korea

Not that anyone noticed, since everyone is once again busily occupied with discussing what a monster Hillary Clinton is, but this afternoon National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster said during a press conference ahead of Donald Trump's trip to Asia that "we're running out of time" on North Korea and that the U.S. is prepared to defend itself and its allies from the North Korean nuclear threat "using the full range of its capabilities."

Also asked if Trump will try to refrain from using incendiary language on his trip, McMaster replied: "The president will use whatever language he wants to use ...I don't think the president really modulates his language. Have you noticed him do that?"

So, you know, if you've been concerned that Trump may try to provoke a war in order to distract from Bob Mueller's investigation and the many other things going wrong with the dumpster fire that is his presidency, I would advise you to maintain that concern.
