Michael Scheuer, a Fox News “terrorism expert,” during a discussion on Fox and Friends this evening called for the U.S. to act “like a superpower,” and “destroy” North Korea’s Navy.
While discussing North Korea’s attack on a South Korean island, Scheuer also said that the U.S. should have attacked North Korea “months ago” when “they sank that North Korean or South Korean boat.”
Host Brian Kilmeade begins by asking, “Michael, first off, what message did North Korea send, and what message can we send back as the chief ally to South Korea, this morning after they sent fire into that island last night?”
“I think the message they sent was they don’t believe we’re going to defend the South Koreans to any great extent,” explains Scheuer. “The message we should have sent when they sank that North Korean boat or South Korean boat several months ago was we should have destroyed as much of North Korean Navy as we could immediately. I also suspect that we should have destroyed, had been ready to hit them again this morning because now the media and the politicians will talk their way out of defending South Korea and let the North Koreans get away with another act of war.”
“So, the heck with what China thinks? Just go take them out because we are assigned…we are an assigned defender of South Korea?” queries Kilmeade.
Scheuer continues, “We need to act as what we are. We are a superpower, we have interests of our own and the North Koreans can do without a navy for a while. They can rebuild it. Instead of spending money on nuclear stuff, they can build new boats.”
“Yeah, let their people starve,” adds Kilmeade.
Echoing the attack North Korea sentiment today, conservative blogger Glenn Reynolds wrote, “If they start anything, I say nuke ‘em. And not with just a few bombs. They’ve caused enough trouble — and it would be a useful lesson for Iran, too. We can’t afford another Korean war, but hey, we’re already dismantling warheads. . . .”
President Obama spoke earlier today on the tenuous situation, and affirmed that South Korea is “one of our most important allies” and “a cornerstone of U.S. security in the Pacific region.”

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow noted that Vice President Mike Pence got thrown into the impeachment scandal by President Donald Trump's own lawyers.
In a bizarre comment in court a few weeks ago, has been revealed with the release of documents. Unfortunately for Pence, it happened again. Trump's lawyers debated with judges and opposing counsel whether Trump could, in fact, shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and be prosecuted. The president's lawyers argued that not only could they not prosecute him, but they also couldn't stop him either.
But it was a key part of their argument that indicated Pence wasn't all that important.
Trump refusing to pay for New Mexico security and barricades — while trying to change the state from blue to red
President Donald Trump thinks he will win New Mexico. He's repeated the factoid multiple times, including to a group of oil and gas workers and executives Wednesday at a conference in Pittsburgh, PA. But he also made two significant mistakes to put that support in jeopardy.
First, the president indicated he was building his "wall" on the border of Colorado, which is north of New Mexico. It would mean that New Mexico was now part of Mexico.
Second, it was reported by the Albuquerque Journal that their city is yet another one Trump's campaign is refusing to pay for security costs.
CNN’s Cuomo obliterates GOP congressman who raided SCIF in impeachment hearing
On Wednesday's edition of CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time," Chris Cuomo brought on Rep. Bill Johnson (R-OH), one of the Republicans who participated in the raid on the secure room where the Intelligence Committee was conducting impeachment hearings. And Johnson's attempt to defend his behavior did not go well.
"Congressman, did you bring a phone in there?" asked Cuomo.
"We headed down that hallway to demand to be able to do our job. That's what we were there for," said Johnson. "There is no classified information being discussed in that room. It is a classified facility, if classified is being discussed, but there was no classified information being discussed there ... You know, a Republican speaker gave that due process and fairness to President Clinton. A Democrat speaker gave that fairness and due process to Richard Nixon. So what do they have to hide, Chris?"
