Re: “Still no answers on Trump’s policies”, Have Your Say, September 16.

Despite being accused of being a blatant liar by Mr Egon, I shall resist picking holes in his latest logically deficient diatribe against me except to say this. First, opinions are opinions, not lies. And second, with regard to Trump’s threats of “fire and fury” against North Korea, horses come before carts.

I shall leave Egon with these choice quotes from North Korea: “The four islands of the archipelago (Japan) should be sunken into the sea by the nuclear bomb of Juche. Japan is no longer needed to exist near us”; “Let’s reduce the US mainland into ashes and darkness”. And with regard to Egon’s suggested “diplomatic efforts with China on board”, eg the UN Security Council where US, China and Russia are unanimous on the issue: “Tool of evil!” “Fire and fury” indeed!
