The Hermit Kingdom of North Korea

The Hermit Kingdom of North Korea

MSNBC host Joy Ried chided President Donald Trump for threatening war against both North Korea and Venezuela saying it was hard to tell his sabre-rattling rhetoric from that of North Korean strongman Kim Jong-un or HBO's "Game of Thrones" character Daenerys Targaryen.

Ellison later retracted his comment, which were made at the Netroots Nation conference, an annual gathering of left-wing and progressive activists.

"No, she's not right, and I think the reason she's not right is that the classical deterrence theory, how does that apply to a regime like the regime in North Korea?".

"You have this guy making bellicose threats against somebody else who has very little to lose over there", Ellison, who also serves as the Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee, said.

Will Kim follow the lead of past cult leader Jim Jones, commit mass suicide, and take much of the world with him? "If you don't want to be a deer in the headlights, start calling for diplomacy immediately".

Gasps could be heard from the crowd of left-wing activists when Ellison made his remarks. No, that's not a dare, as you say. I mean, his rhetoric might make Kim Jong Un think that he needs to strike first.

The top US intelligence official said on Sunday he would not be surprised if North Korea tested another missile, given that it had two tests in July, amid rising tensions between the United States and North Korea. Democrats appear to be playing a risky game of using the threat of nuclear war as a way to tear down Trump. "What we need from an intelligence perspective, what is most important is that our communications are clear that the fella who intends to inflict pain on the United States of America understands the USA position in an unambiguous way. Well, he's acting more responsible than this guy", Congressman Keith Ellison said alluding to Trump during a gathering of online activists in Georgia.
