The time to vote is now. Will there be war between the U.S. and North Korea?

If you don't choose now, you won't be able to say you chose correctly later on.

With North Korea holding anti-US rallies, Kim Jong Un has decided to misinterpret Trump's claim to mean that North Korea won't be around much longer - not him. He calls it proof of nuclear escalation from the U.S.

What do you think will be the outcome of all of this?

Will little Kim get to keep his weapons? Will Trump make America great again? Cast your vote now or feel free to discuss first. This poll will end in thirty days.

What if Trump decided to take action based solely on the results of this poll?

I don't think so. He better the fuck not. He's reneged on enough campaign promises already. He needs to stop war-mongering and get that fucking wall built.

J think the US dollar is too fragile for America to get into another extended foreign intervention. The US has absolutely nothing to gain by this "preemptive" strike and everything to lose. Trump better not pull the trigger on this or his base will turn against him. Far worse that that, the entire world may turn against the US dollar.

United States remains the world’s top producer of petroleum and natural gas hydrocarbons

The United States remained the world's top producer of petroleum and natural gas hydrocarbons in 2016 for the fifth straight year despite production declines for both petroleum and natural gas relative to their 2015 levels. The United States has been the world's top producer of natural gas since 2009, when U.S. natural gas production surpassed that of Russia, and it has been the world's top producer of petroleum hydrocarbons since 2013, when its production exceeded Saudi Arabia’s.

War is possible. If little Rocketman over plays his hand and does something stupid like launch a small scale attack on South Korea likes he's done in the past thins could quickly escalate. The fat boy is stuck between a rock and a hard place. If he backs down he looks weak and is vulnerable to a military coup. If he doesn't and attacks South Korea, Japan or the US he'll get his ass handed to him. If he uses nukes North Korea will cease to exist.
