And not just a dictator in a country we bombed to hell in the 50's trying to keep himself and his people alive while Washington's occupying military forces regularly conduct war games to practice invading his country...
And he totally is just insane and potentially suicidal...
And he's got nukes...
And he's almost got missiles that can fly them to us...
Then we definitely don't want to put more pressure on him.
You think this is how hostage negotiators talk?
To crazy, potentially suicidal guys who've taken hostages?
"with fire and fury like
the world has never seen!"
Hostage negotiators talk those guys down.
They don't try to scare them and stir them up.
They don't put pressure on them.
