Lots of the elites are weighing in on President Trump’s recent statements. History shows that there are times where strong, even threatening rhetoric is the only way to get the point across. Many Presidents have employed this strategy successfully and we can look to The Bay of Pigs and World War II for examples. The Kim regime uses this to get attention and it is important to know when to adopt the language of your adversary. A strong position of power might make negotiations more palatable to North Korea. The DPRK has shown that diplomatic, carefully vetted language doesn’t work, so tough talk may be just the thing.
