------------
WASHINGTON — President Trump announced Monday that his administration is putting North Korea back on a U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism, a mostly symbolic blow meant to deepen the diplomatic isolation of Kim Jong Un’s regime in Pyongyang.
------------
Many countries would consider the US to be a state sponsored terrorist group.
Remember the Vietnam war?

But nobody can surpass the state sponsored terror of the western Europeans of the past 500 years.

Robert,

I agree with you in saying that the U.S.A. is a sponsor of international terrorism and I deeply regret this.

But it is not wrong to state that N Korea too is a terrorist state.

What you said about Europe, however, is a little pathetic. It may be your opinion but it is an opinion based largely on ideological biases.

If Europeans in the past can be labelled "terrorists" then so can all current governments in the Third World.

Will you run that by me one more time please...

Since you're a sponsor of international terrorism, in my book;
it's impossible to name and shame anyone else to do the same...

Not within the United Nations...  
The Purposes of the United Nations are: To maintain international peace and security...
however, above you stated:
"I agree with you in saying that the U.S.A. is a sponsor of international terrorism"

How else do you fight terror but with terror?
Western Europe isn't so powerful anymore. Now they are confused about who are the terrorists.
Hence NATO is on the verge of falling apart.
And who is to say not that, even though the Chinese invented explosive gun powder for fireworks,
it was the western Europeans how who found a way to use it to overpower indigenous people
in North America, South American, and Australia, three entire continents, over the past five
centuries to take what did not belong to them.

Is this not truth or is it just emotion?

I'm not saying that every western European is to blame in today's world. But history must not
be forgotten.

What other region of the world can take this dishonor?

You are right, Robert: Communist terror has vanished, the Warsaw terrorist Pact has been disbanded and in my view Nato is largely redundant too.

But I don't think terrorism has been terminated. European countries are now forming a united European military force to fight against external enemies.

Yes. The terrorism of Western Europe was the most successful so far in history. But, right now, the West is in a crisis of low confidence (as shown by Brexit and Trump). The ordinary citizens of the West are angry and confused. They still enjoy the highest living-standards of any human population; but they (rightly) feel neglected by their "liberal political elites". These "liberals" (and I'm one of them) failed to make the wealthy pay sufficient taxes to provide their children with the education that would've brought them the same benefits currently available to the children of the rich. Many of these liberals hob-nobbed with rich celebrities and allowed them to avoid their appropriate taxes. However, this failure can be corrected by the judicious addition of socialist taxation and regulation of the rich. The West is not the only place where the rich are not properly-taxed. This is the case in every country - including those that are supposedly 'socialist".
My problem is simple: I just know better than everyone-else!

Good things do take time...
I'm not surprised at all that the EU got a mouthful from the NATO boss across the big lake.
