A letter to the Sun Sentinel
"What does a failing administration need to divert attention? The talk of military action — code words for war.
For Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to say that all negotiations have failed with relation to North Korea, and that military action is on the table is no different than former President Obama's red line drawn in relation to Syria. Republicans have criticized Obama for this and now they are doing the same thing, unless they are really ready to get boots on the ground before working harder on diplomacy and possible sanctions if they apply.
Doesn't Tillerson notice that all this muscle coming from North Korea came about because of the rhetoric used by Trump during his contentious presidential campaign. With all the failing agendas coming from the Trump administration, yet another diversion is in store for already nervous Americans.
