      Our polar bears will protect us.

  • Sooner or later, Japan and South Korea, even Taiwan, will weapon up.

    Be ready.

    So Indian just launched a nuclear-powered, ballistic missile submarine. And the communist Chinese will have over a thousand 4th generation fighter aircraft by 2020. And the Norks have an atomic weapon (maybe). Yet only Trump’s remarks are going to trigger an arms race?

    The New York Times is shocked, shocked that Trump would utter common sense.
