Graham Says 2018 Will Be a Year of ‘Extreme Danger’ — If Trump Admin ‘Blinks, God Help Us’

Sunday on CBS’s “Face The Nation,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said 2018 would be a year of “extreme danger” in the United States relations with North Korea and Iran. Graham said, “He’s told the North Koreans ‘I will deny you the capability to hit America with a nuclear-tip missile.’ If they test another bomb, they’re closer to having that capability. And as last resort ‘I will use more force to stop you.’ Now, Iranians are watching us in North Korea. North Korea is watching us in Iran. 2018 will be a year of opportunity and extreme danger. The president has drawn a line in North Korea, telling the regime ‘I’ll never let you hit America with a nuclear-tip missile. If I have to, I’ll use military force to stop you.’ Iranians are watching the way he engages with North Korea and vice versa.” He added, “We’ve got a chance here to deliver some fatal blows to some really bad actors in 2018. But if we blink, God help us all.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

He will start a war! — Steve Cohen (@RepCohen) December 31, 2017 He continued, “A narcissistic sociopath doesn’t change. It endangers the country and war like wag the dog is something he could get into to improve the ratings for the ’18 elections where they are in desperate shape. They’ll do anything to improve ratings.” He added, “I think you have to show, and I hope I can show, what type of person he is. He’s never with his son. I think one of his ex-wives wrote he never was with his children until they were adults. This is an unusual human being. Barron looks like a nice kid, but he spends no quality time at all with his father. He claims he

Now the ruling — which came in the case of a 71’year’old Louisiana inmate still awaiting a parole hearing — is being tested again in that same state, where prosecutors have moved in recent months to keep about 1 in 3 former juvenile offenders locked up for the rest of their lives.(Snip) “In this community, some of the most violent crimes we´ve had have been
