Well I believe it's necessary you know the North Korean rhetoric the bluster of the dear new leader getting out there personally.
The rocket preparations.
I think we have to send a message and the message is more -- our allies towards Japan.
Toward South Korea.
That were ready to to help them were on their side obviously.
The there -- munitions weren't alive.
I don't think we've had negative and bad rhetoric from the US government we played it I think very cool.
But at this time when the north Koreans are taking these steps and I've never seen this intensity as.
As harsh as it is I think the steps that we took.
Or the correct steps now what we have to do -- ownership -- I think things have to cool down.
The worry is that can -- jungle and it's spinning himself into a corner.

Do we have a way diplomatically or otherwise to know if he's even stable.
We know very little about him except what you said he went to school.
In Europe he speaks a little English.
I've noticed the way he handles himself -- he's a better speaker than his father he moves well with his people.
He gives a better speech than his father the danger though is that he still posturing.
-- his military with the hardliners in the military.
Obviously have -- -- because they've probably sent about -- said you know get some pictures where you're ordering the missile preparations.
So it could be the good news here and if there's any is that he's showing off.
Domestically -- -- people that he still feels he have to show his military and its population.
And his political base in the North Korean people that he's in charge and that he stuff.
