As we barrell toward World War III with North Korea, our CIA is briefing President Trump on the multiple scenarios and risks involved in a limited attack on the hermit nation on the Korean Peninsula, according to CIA Director Mike Pompeo on Tuesday.
Pompeo would not discuss the wisdom of a preemptive strike on Pyongyang or other nuclear weapons facilities at a gathering at the conservative American Enterprise Institute (AEI). However, Pompeo discussed North Korea as one of the most urgent priorities for the agency and the current administration.
Kim is a rational man, Pompeo said, in accordance with CIAs assessment. Still, it is not clear whether or not Kim Jong-Un realizes the ramifications that would come to be by attacking the U.S. with a nuclear strike. A devastating nuclear war could occur, involving the U.S., China, and Russia.

He spelled “insanely bat sh*t crazy” wrong...
Like the CIA now has any better reputation than the FBI, IRS, Just-Us-Clown-Department, the MSM, and most non STEM departments of world universities.
Where do we get such idiots?
Kim is crazy in the sense that h is dezperately evil, tyrinical, and arrogant. This does not nean he is not rational in a literal sense. People sometimes say somebody is irrational bevause they are being unreasonable, and certainly Kim qualifies for unreasonable in spades. But he is rational, and this is useful to understand when dealing with him.
Kim is a Rational Man, Says CIA Director Mike Pompeo
Rational leaders always dispose of there competition by feeding them to packs of hungry dogs or shooting them with anti-aircraft 30 mm guns.
If that’s the best Pompey can do, then its reassignment time with the rest of the swamp.
Yea, and so is Mike Pompeo...SNOT!
Hopefully this is some version of 3D chess.
Trump is largely surrounded by Deep Staters/NeoCons. This is the only concern I have about his presidency.
“Barrel towards nuclear war”?
I think not. For the first time in his rule period, Kim is openly calling for reunification with South Korea, the desired outcome for all sides, especially the long-suffering North Koreans. This kind of call isn’t a dalliance, it’s an earthquake, and a positive one.
I understand and appreciate your assessment, but disagree with your conclusion. To be considered rational, one must act rationally, that is, in accordance with logic. His pattern of acting irrationally is manifold. Most telling is in the execution of various officials and relatives. Using an anti-aircraft weapon to kill someone is irrational and speaks volumes as to his mental stability. Executing scientists for a failed nuclear test is also, irrational.
Come on, deep state has a back channel to North Korea..!
They’re probably an asset which does things when they’re paid, a little like exporting counterfeit currency or math or weapons.
Seriously? That fat, little, saddam Hussein wannabe? Yeah, he’s just peachy.
Mike Pompeo is not an idiot. In fact, he's brilliant and he's a patriot. If he said this he had a reason for saying it, whether he believes it to be true or not.
Civil Service, apparently.
Yea, and so was Hitler!
Kim is a rational man,
who happened to execute his uncle with a 50 caliber anti-aircraft gun battery.
