-- they -- post raising this question this week that to the Pentagon is being too politically correct.
And it's entering sort of -- a dangerous bit of territory do you buy that aren't you know what do you think.
I don't know what their motivations are in terms of political correctness but I do know this day -- dead wrong on this issue.
I mean -- song is a self radicalized.
-- Islamic extremists who exhibited speech and behavior.
For months and years before he took a weapon in his hand.
And killed his teammates.
In the name of his ideology that by definition.
It's terrorism it's domestic terrorism he's -- he's an Islamist extremists to be sure.
And it goes way beyond any description certainly -- workplace violence and so general you just setting yourself.
Indications that he had these extreme religious slash political views they were on display other people notice them.
And if he wasn't sanctioned -- council were separated why.
The army has no guidance on how to deal with.
Some radical extremism it doesn't end in terms of racial extremism all that said.
Inside our military organizations.
In the chain of command any thing that violates the good order and discipline of that organization or would limit its ability to perform it's mission.
Should be reported.
That person should be counseled reprimanded.
If that behavior doesn't change separated a court -- there was nothing stopping the chain of command.

The same one thing then you have by the CIA sort of in the middle and then you have the State Department led by John Kerry saying something completely different what do you make of North Korea's nuclear capabilities and the Obama administration's response.
Well it's hard to arm wrestle different viewpoints on the technicalities of where they are precisely -- Right now we do know they're trying to.
Weaponized in nuclear program so they can miniaturized it and put it on top of the missile and Iowa let's make this assumption that they are making progress towards that end.
They will get there.
-- the ability to put it on top of a ballistic missile know whether they have -- the reach of that missile.

North Korea's nuclear cable or missile capabilities.
The White House saying another what kind of message does that send to enemies abroad.
Well I think most people can sort through it frankly can it mean the real issue here.
Is that the administration deserves some credit for showing some resolve and steadfastness.
And not doing what we have done in the past that is.
North Korea strident.
Provocative acts gains attention and normally we give concessions.
After some diplomatic talks.
Now we may be heading down that road even though we have shown steadfast and resolve.
Because the president of South Korea has expressed that view point to -- legislature and I'm sure she's expressed that the secretary Kerry I think that'd be a big mistake.
To give this guy concessions in the face of what he's been doing that is what we have done in the past and that's why we continue to have these chapters.
Of this kind of behavior because he kind of gets what he wants from it.
Right makes threats we concede.
And -- week four years -- do the same thing all over again generally -- always great to see here on fox prince thanks so much for waking up this morning appreciate it all right thanks thank.
