When your policy is to bribe someone to keep from having an encounter or conflict (war), you place yourself in a situation of being held hostage. When it is a dictator (N. Korea), you will never be let go and the cost rises, it will never end, until policy changes. The little sick guy in NK understands what the U.S. has done in the past with dictators…….. his paranoia against the U.S. is real, which makes him dangerous and unpredictable. He does not want to be the next Gaddafi; who’s death was inspired by none other than Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama. Now Trump must deal with a paranoid, I want more power freak, our government helped create. The freak is a time bomb with a nuke. We, the American people should have been paying closer attention to the foreign policies long before Trump.
