Pundits willing to be remotely honest have credited President Trump’s rhetoric with causing the North Korean Regime to back down from its threat to fire multiple missiles at Guam. Mr. Trump certainly deserves substantial praise for actually sounding like an American president in commanding the most powerful military the world has ever seen. That’s not something Americans have heard for nearly nine years, so it’s probably a source of near-stupefying cognitive dissonance for the Media and the Left (yes, yes, I know: one in the same).
Yet even so, there is a danger, as Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) informed us in 2010, worrying about a Marine build-up on the island:
My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize.
No, he wasn’t kidding. He’s a congressman, so he must know things we don’t, particularly if those things are really stupid. The admiral testifying before Johnson in Congress dryly replied:
We don’t anticipate that.
At last glance, Guam remains above the waves. In any case, Duffelblog.com fills in the gaps, explaining that more than Mr. Trump’s rhetoric was involved–much more. Take the link and experience the horror that enveloped the North Koreans.
