    When the USA does military drills with South Korea uncomfortably close to North Korea's border NK hates it and has made threats because it is so threatening. When Russia does it to the USA it makes the USA paranoid as well. Everybody hates it!

    All NK asks is for the USA and SK to end the drills and they will halt nuclear tests. This has been the case for a long time.

    If the USA insists on doing them why not do them 40 miles to the south where NK does not feel threatened by them? At the very least it would help prevent an accidental incident. Isn't that reasonable?

    Nobody has to do military drills that close to the North Korean border. The only reason to do that is to deliberately make them paranoid. It amounts to bullying. The USA keeps doing it because they got away with it the first time and they want a first strike advantage to continue. As a result the bullying continues.
    The USA will not tolerate it from Russia because it would lead to the same thing. Even 40 miles off our coast is not acceptable so why would NK tolerate it so close to their border? Don't the North Koreans have a right to make threats as a reaction? JFK did it to the USSR during the Cuban missile crisis. That means NK is being reasonable, right?

    What does SK do when NK conducts drills near the SK border?

    This again?

    Do you plan to bring this up every few months until someone, somewhere finally supports you on it?

    I want to find out how long people can dismiss flawless logic in favor of propaganda. Are you experiencing cognitive dissonance?

    Do you deny that the USA feels threatened by them when they are close to our country?

    Why didn't India's missile test make the evening news? China feels threatened but our government could care less. Why the omission?

    Military drills have been conducted since the formation of militaries. Normal business...nothing to see here.

    And you really believe them. In that case, I have a FINE bridge for sale.....BTW, you probably didn't know the chief nuke scientist of the US has been invited to NK now 7 times to view their latest technology, one of which is a building with TWO THOUSAND uranium centrifuges and that is not the only one. So you really think they are going to put a stop to that with SK and the US stopping exercises? You are poster boy naive.

    Why not. The whole site revolves around 4 or so subjects that get constantly rehashed without anyone ever changing opinion!

    Yeah, then suddenly it’s not quite such a far fetched paranoia.

    I'm talking about military drills uncomfortably close to the border of another country. In this case countries still technically at war.

    I would expect such nonsense from a simpleton like you though.

    Believe what?

    You have a bad habit of not being specific. It is as if you want people to work hard to know what the heck you are talking about.

    Everybody hates them when they are too close for comfort.

    When will a reporter ask trump "why not hold military drills farther away?"
    The news media seems to be easy on Trump by not expecting him to answer any tough questions. Contrary to his claims, the corporate news media is very Trump friendly.
