CNN ratings are up so far this year.

"The viewership spike for cable news shows no signs of slowing down. Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC all saw double-digit ratings growth across the board for the second quarter of 2017, according to Nielsen data."

That is called the Trump Bump :D
Yes but your assertion that CNN is tanking is incorrect.

It went from 14th to the top 10 When it was 14th it was out ranked by the cartoon network. Actually all the cable new channel put together have a pretty small audience compared to the broadcast networks and Cable TV subscriptions are way down across the board. The only reason teh cable news channels have gain viewers this year is indeed because of Donald Trump.

How would the US retaliate if North Korea attacked Guam?

No CNN's rantings are still in the gutter. Just less so because of Trump.

North Korea and its parallel to Hitler's march into the Rhineland

Post by cassowary » Thu Aug 10, 2017 9:22 pm

In 1936, Hitler ordered the military to re-occupy the Rhineland, in violation of the Versailles Treaty.

The Allies did nothing. Had France alone mobilized its troops, the Germans would have withdrawn with their tails between their legs, as Hitler put it.

WWII might not be fought. Yes, there would be casualties, but nowhere near the 40 million dead. The point I am trying to make is this. Stopping N Korea now will be costly in lives. But not stopping Fatty Kim will cost far more lives in the future. That is the decision Trump has to make.

Weigh the cost of lives now with the cost of lives in the future. Do you want to wait till Fatty Kim has 500 nukes capable of reaching New York?

Hitler told his cabinet before sending in troops to the Rhineland that if one shot was fired he would resign.

That would mean Trump brought us to the edge of nuclear disaster.

Any war is good as long as it doesn't touch you...
