I mean, we've got two crazy shitheads going at it, but the loss of their empire would seem to be a deterrant.

Then again, because the US is situated much better than North Korea to win such a conflict (irrespective of massive collateral damage to others) and Trump's possible advantage of being a "wartime president" (and of course you can't impeach a wartime president, it would be unpatriotic!) could possibly--possibly--move him to make a pre-emptive strike. Maybe not a nuclear pre-emptive strike, but a pre-emptive strike nonetheless.
