Trump: US ‘Locked and Loaded’ for N. Korea Attack; War Games Set for Aug. 21

“A US strike against North Korea may go against common logic, but when a country is governed by propaganda – and the United States are going through such a period – political decisions go beyond rational logic, and there we can have consequences that are hard to foresee.
