What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

North Korea: Trump condems "strategic patience;" Jimmy Carter offers to negotiate the peace. Others calculate the costs of war.

Here we go, again, with Trump's attacks--- from threatening war to sanctioning the people to death--- on North Korea claiming "strategic patience" is a "failed policy."


What right does Trump have to dictate anything to North Korea when he won't even sit down and have face to face talks with the North Koreans--- in spite of his often stated campaign promises to do just that?


Where is Trump's response to Jimmy Carter who publicly made an offer to help resolve this situation by going to North Korea?


"Jimmy Carter offers to talk peace with North Korea's Kim, says academic"...

And this from Carter himself:


"Guest editorial: What I've learned from North Korea's leaders"...

Trump has a lot of unmitigated arrogant gall disdaining "strategic patience" when the only alternative may be war and nuclear annihilation.


Obviously there are those imbeciles and morons in the United States government hard at work calculating the costs of war:

Sanctions against North Korea intended to cause the people of North Korea extreme hardships are acts of war.
