    @thid
    NC was delisted by GW Bush not Obama. Please try to at least get the most basic facts right.

    "This is what excellent foreign policy leadership looks like! Not sending pallets of cash to appease and enable dictators or apology tours"!

    Another day. Another non-factual, anti liberal rant of course praising the Supreme Leader and omitting factual information! As you are aware the Tweeter and Chief just met with dictator Duterte of the Philippines! Possibly prior to continued Breitbart rhetoric one will obtain legitimate sources of news just once prior to posting? Definitely will not be holding my breath. Furthermore. Trump approval ratings are 38% and declining hourly! The highly partisan Rasmussen Poll which you attempt touting as legitimate in nearly every article currently has Trump with barely a 40% overall approval rating. Country before party comrade! Thank you and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    The United States did not declare anything. Trump declared it.

    The world knows Trump is not a legitimate President and they are all waiting and watching for his demise.

    Just imagine the global celebration.

    Also, I was told...
    "By your logic, in WWII we should have gone to war with Austria. That was the "home of" Hitler, wasn't it? "
    We did.
    After the Anschluss Osterreich of 1938, Germany essentially annexed Austria as a German province. It remained so for the duration of the war.
    Christmas is coming, and on one channel or another 'The Sound of Music' will be on. You ought to watch; it's not totally historically accurate but it does touch on the subject.

    At least we have a president brave enough to call a spade a spade

    @ FT

    "This act depicts Trump's first year in office. A lot of bark, no bite..."

    Ummmmm......President Trump put most of those sanctions on NK already. He HAS taken action. Unlike some former presidents - in this case GW Bush - that think we can get these dictators to behave by being nice to them, President Trump is turning the screws. If this would have been done decades ago, we probably wouldn't even be in this situation today. Same goes for Iran. (I'll bet you think that Obama got Iran to stop pursuing nuclear weapons, huh?)

    @ Hutterite

    "There is no way Saudi Arabia, home of Osama, should not also be on this list."

    That's gotta be the stupidest thing I ever read. The criteria to be on the list is "state sponsored" terrorism. Not simply states where terrorists are from. Jeeeeez!

    By your logic, in WWII we should have gone to war with Austria. That was the "home of" Hitler, wasn't it?

    Maybe we should have arrested everyone in Milwaukee because that's where Jeffrey Dahmer was from, huh?

    Just another of far too many Obama messes left for President Trump to repair!

    "Tillerson acknowledged that the designation will bring few new sanctions beyond those already imposed, noting during the White House briefing on Monday that "we already have many of these actions in place.""
    This act depicts Trump's first year in office. A lot of bark, no bite who's real intent is to keep the 30% of low information, loyal supporters fed with state sponsored propaganda.

    The Democrats were shell shocked on election night as they watched the voters reject Mrs. Bill Clinton. They finally saw her for what she really is.

    Too bad the Democrats stole the presidential nomination from the rightful candidate. Bernie Sanders would have won.

    Thank you Trump. Other presidents would have caved and given billions of tax payer dollars.

    Yes, and they are in submarines we have positioned in the area.

    Is there really any worthwhile sanctions left to impose on the DPRK?
