Trump says we have trade with China to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars yet china does nothing but talk when it comes to North Korea. He tweeted: “China can easily solve this problem.”
China is North Koreas ally and trade partner and it asks the US to come to an agreement with North Korea based on dialogue. Meanwhile the only dialogue is North Korea becoming more belligerent and the US wishing such dialogue was possible. In response to the missile launch two B-1 bombers flew over North Korea accompanied by South Korean and Japanese fighter planes.

Davis California Imam retracts his invective against Jews and apologized for saying things harmful to Jews. He originally defended himself saying he only lashed out at Israel (which is apparently acceptable) but recordings show he said ‘Jews should be killed’ so he ended up apologizing for his hurtful statements. It remains to be seen why invective against Israel is considered permissible in his eyes or in the eyes of the ADL that accepted his apology. The net result is the same, Jews around the world get killed when Muslims become violent from hearing this incitement whether against Israel or against Jews.
