Tillerson: Diplomacy with North Korea “until the first bomb drops”

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in an interview Sunday that President Trump wants to continue working toward a diplomatic solution to the North Korean threat “until the first bomb drops.” He said that Trump is trying to “motivate action” on North Korea although he wants to be clear that he has military options on the table.

He said Trump has made it clear Tillerson should continue his diplomatic efforts in North Korea. “Those diplomatic efforts will continue until the first bomb drops,” Tillerson said.

    So drop the first bomb already!

    Why waste any more time while increasing our strategic vulnerability??

    And by the way, if one of those B1 bombers has an extra nuke onboard on the way back to Guam,
    why not swing by Tehran and light up their night….

    First bomb — Whose first bomb? The dotards’ or the Rocketmans’?

    Then why did the dotard say it is waste of time to negotiate with the Rocketman?
