  1. Why are all of our allies so seemingly helpless and judgmental. We spend billions protecting countries that are more than capable of protecting themselves. Rather than spend money on their defense, they increase their standard of living. Everyone takes the US for granted and I am sick of it.

  2. Hey Kim Jong-Un, how about a photograph for the history books?
    Just look into the bright flash of light and say Cheese.

  3. Notice that NBC was very selective in their interviews. Two women who were against President Trump and one man said he was with him. Now, you know that NBC interviewed dozen of people. The two dissenters were, obviously, hand picked to demonstrate, erroneously, that South Koreans were Against President Trump. Nothing could be further from the truth. South Koreans, overwhelmingly, love Americans and our president. If PRK decides to invade ROK, the South Koreans will be forever grateful for our assistance. Good old NBC, up to their leftist tricks once again. False news. I'll bet the two dissenters were staged.

  4. MSM are weak feeble low lives that would have America cower in fear and shy away from a direct threat to our nation. They would prefer Trump send KJU a red reset button instead? Liberal trash.

  5. That dumb statement the Whitehouse occupy made was wreckless and irresponsible. As a leader you always look for ways to preserve peace through diplomatic measures. Since the moron in North Korea is threatening, you have to retaliate with talking them down. Since the Whitehouse occupy is a moron. All we will get is a pile of crap

  6. GOD'S ARMY!!!! WE NEED PRAYERS FOR GOD'S INTERVENTION RIGHT NOW!!!!! PRAY, PRAY, PRAY!!!!!! PLEASE!!!! THE EMENY WILL BE DEFEATED!!!! WITH THE INTERVENTION OF OUR KING OF ALL KINGS!!!! THE RULER!!! AND CREATOR OF THIS WORLD!!!! WATCH AND SEE HOW HE WILL BE GLORIFIED!!!!!!!!!! THROUGH PRESIDENT TRUMP!!!! HIS ANNIONTED ONE!!!!! PRAISE GOD!!!! SEEK GOD!!!! BEFORE ITS TOO LATE FOR YOU ALL!!!! WE ARE PRAYING FOR YOU ALL!!!! TO ACKNOWLEDGE HIM!!!!! FOR ALL YOUR SAKES!!!!! GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!!!

  7. Give me a break. Screw You TODAY! You're nothing but a sold out Globalist leftist mouthpiece pushing more dim witted propaganda on all those with weak enough minds to take your politically motivated BS seriously. We ain't buying it! As America pulls itself out of the ditch your dear leader Obama has dug us into, it'll be no thanks to the likes of you. You're irrelevant, you're Pravda!!! MAGA! 🇺🇸 MAGA! 🇺🇸 MAGA!🇺🇸

  8. There is nothing to worry about. The SK are not idiots. They know that US will protect them hence all their rich people are still in Seoul. When the rich South Koreans start leaving the capital that is the time to get serious. Of course the poor people of SK will not have that choice.

  9. Save all those millions of dogs in South Korea from being kidnapped, tortured and killed by the South Korean terrorists before North Korea bombs South Korea to dust. South Korea is a country full of monsters and deserves to die in North Korea's nuclear fire for those crimes. Trump is worse than North Korea and South Korea, ISIS and Boko Haram combined and should be sent back to to his homeland North Korea as soon as possible before he destroys America.

  10. Islanders making to much trouble around the world.. chill out Islanders. The UK wants to rule mainland Europe. Japan (allied with the USA) wants to rule mainland China. Get a life people, Japan and South Korea only has to to be friendly, diplomatic and trade trade trade with North K and China.. The archaic "GAMES OF THRONES" behaviors and violence will only aggravate the situations further into "Games of Thrones" Micheal Jackson's Thriller dance.

  11. Trump fires back at kim fat jung and the South Koreans have a problem with that? Maybe the us military should just leave and stop our overly aggressive help to south korea. the two koreas will immediately reunite peacefully XD. spoiled south.

  12. american troops to protect them?
    im sorry but not only 30 000 US soldiers here. but also 650 000 south korean soldiers too. its media brainwashing to think onlt US troops are protecting korea. its the other way around. south korea will gain OPCON command meaning they virtually will become an independant miliatry power

  13. nk to attack guam seems impossible. kim could just point his missiles towards sk unless he just really wanted to provoke usa.

  14. I love South Korean people, they have warmed our hearts as a peaceful nation. There music is worldwide, there culture is beautiful and very respectful. I am Australian and have a lovely friendship with a South Korean couple, my teenage daughter loves there K-Pop music and has gone to there tour shows. The world must stand by them but I think to go to war is wrong as the whole world will be affected in nuclear disease, many human lives will be lost, many beautiful wildlife and fauna destroyed, so much pain , sickness, homeless, devastation, food shortages ect; We must not go to war, there has to be a way to keep discussions going leaving Altar Ego's at the door. Thank you for this informative report.

  15. Kim Jong UN you are a coward. you will never be worthy of the worship you receive. you don't have the balls to send missiles towards Guam

  16. Just a simple hole in the path way of that red Carpet 100ft to his Death. fill the hole with hot cheese he would have a smile on his face. leave him cover hole everyone go home Now!

  17. Its not president Trump that makes north korea shoot missiles over japan. But luckily south korea is strong on many levels and I believe they can win without help. But they will get help from the west and it would be nice to see fatty kim in a cage or court like Saddam Hussan.

  18. South Koreans have become cowards bowing down to Kim Jong Un's threats and attacks for decades . It's only the USA that has saved you from total invasion from North Korea . Your prepared to allow North Korea to keep threatening the US as long as you don't have trouble with NK . And you said Donald Trump was selfish ? What hypocrisy . Stop crawling to NK .
    I think most South Koreans know that without the USA they are screwed .
