We lost credibility on North Korea

first_imgThe proposed meeting of the U.S. president and the dictator of North Korea, which has never happened before, and for good reason, will result in a total lack of credibility from here on out to the resolve of the United States to act on behalf of its interests and allies. Trump has said repeatedly that if North Korea tries anything, the United States will crush them with fire and fury. On the floor of the United Nations, in front of the whole world, Trump said he would wipe North Korea off the face of the Earth. A very strong stance, but was it just bluster? North Korea offers a face-to-face meeting between the two leaders, and Trump jumps at the chance, “Tell them I’ll do it, I accept.” Now, North Korea and the world know Trump was just bluffing. It was all bravado. So in the next world crisis, for example if Russia invades Ukraine, and the United States says, “You had better stop or else,” the United States will be seen as a paper tiger. Henry MoltSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:Schenectady police reform sessions pivot to onlineFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Schenectady department heads: Budget cutbacks would further stress already-stretched departmentsSchenectady High School senior class leaders look to salvage sense of normalcyMotorcyclist injured in Thursday afternoon Schenectady crash Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img read more

Less time in the car and Ubers is a big attraction,” she said.Mr Lawrence said the multi-layered architectural elements featured a staggered podium and architectural screening providing additional privacy. He said there was subtropical landscaping enfolding the lower podium levels and the upper levels featured elegant brickwork, striking the balance between contemporary Queensland design and the industrial past of Teneriffe.Mr Lawrence said Teneriffe was one of the “golden areas” where people wanted to live because of the proximity to the river and CBD.The building is 50 per cent sold with construction anticipated to start mid-year.

We have three teenage sons, so needed enough space for them, as well as a location that could allow them to be independent,” Mrs Harris said.“The opportunity at Tenor really stood out to us. We’ve been able to combine two, two- bedroom apartments to create a three bedroom plus multipurpose room space. The developer has also worked with us on the particular elements we wanted, such as timber flooring and lighting changes as well as some additional built-in storage. “Purchasing off the plan has enabled us to make these personal changes, as well as have a broader choice of apartments.”last_img read more
