Robert Gehl writes that Maxine Waters has a plan for dealing with North Korea: surrender.
The Democratic California Congresswoman told TMZ that threats of force – President Trump’s now-infamous “fire and force” line – doesn’t work and we should return to diplomacy.
But Wacky Maxie wants to go further. As far as she’s concerned, we should be giving North Korea whatever they want … a surrender, in effect.
While she was leaving an upscale steakhouse in Beverly Hills, the TMZ reporter asked Waters, “We’re on the verge of nuclear war, what are your thoughts on this?”
Taking the bait – because she’s as sharp as a hard-boiled egg – Waters answered:
I want us to be very careful, very alert to what is happening and to avoid war. I think we can do this with some diplomacy, but we have got to have Tillerson, who is our secretary of state, get those positions filled for deputy [and] for assistant, so that we can engage with North Korea.
That’s not a completely insane statement, but Maxine being Maxine, she had to continue.
“I think there’s some things that they want from us, and we have to find out whether or not we can work with them on the things that they’re asking for,” Waters said.
Give them the things they’re asking for? How stupid is she?
“This is something that we should be very concerned about, but this is not the time to go bluffing and threatening. This is a time for a diplomacy,” Waters said, referring to President Donald Trump’s strong warning on Tuesday.
“North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States,” Trump said. “They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”
Trump’s rhetoric has been called “reckless” and in response, Pyongyang said they were going to target Guam later this month to test-fire some missiles.
Interestingly, the governor of Guam – an US island territory of 200,000 people – said he appreciated President Trump’s remarks.
“As far as I’m concerned, as an American citizen, I want a president that says that if any nation such as North Korea attacks Guam…that they will be met with hell and fury,” Gov. Eddie Calvo declared.
In fact, Calvo said he was more disturbed by Sen. Lindsey Graham’s statement that “if there was going to be a war, it would be in the region, not in America.”
