    North Korea Threat Comes After Trump Vows ‘Fire and Fury’

    North Korea Threat Comes After Trump Vows ‘Fire and Fury’

    After president warns against making any more threats to the U.S, North Korea says it is considering plan to launch missiles at Guam

    President Donald Trump bluntly warned North Korea against making any more threats to the U.S., saying the country “will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”

    Within hours of Mr. Trump’s comments, North Korea made its most specific threat against the U.S. yet. Through its official media, North Korea said it was considering firing missiles at Guam, a U.S. territory in the Pacific, and making the U.S. “the first to experience the might of the strategic weapons of the DPRK”—the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, North Korea’s formal name.

    Mr. Trump’s stark comments reflect deep concern in the administration about the progress North Korea has made in recent months on its nuclear-weapons program, as well as provocative statements this week that seemingly rejected negotiations over curbing that program.

    The president’s brief remarks at his golf resort in New Jersey likely were aimed both at North Korea, which this week openly threatened to use nuclear weapons, and at China, in hopes of alarming the Chinese into doing their part to enforce new United Nations economic sanctions against North Korea.

    Meanwhile, a senior Trump administration official said Tuesday that Washington shouldn’t assume it will be able to contain a North Korea with nuclear-armed intercontinental ballistic missiles through traditional deterrence methods.

    “We are not going to allow North Korea to hold American cities hostage,” the official said.
    I wonder what China's real endgame is with their rogue client state. Many possibilities.

    I applaud the President's effort to show Kim Jong-il how spastic and ridiculous his strongman rhetoric sounds.

    That's what he's doing, right?

    “And I got a call from the head of the Boy Scouts saying it was the greatest speech that was ever made to them, and they were very thankful."
    -President Donald J. Trump

    Trump Says He ‘Modernized’ America’s Nuclear Arsenal in 6 Months

    ...

    On Wednesday morning, Donald Trump sought to quiet the fears of an anxious world — by tweeting ludicrous lies about America’s nuclear arsenal.


    Yeah, man. You Norks might be thinking of last year's nuclear arsenal that could reduce your country to a smoking ruin 100 times over. But now that Trump is in charge, it's all new, renovated in six months time (I know -- shut up) and now it can reduce your country to a smoking ruin 100 million bajillion times over. So now it's a real deterrent, got it?

    And, it gets worse.

    “These are the moments when we have to come together as a nation and support the executive,” Gorka said on Fox & Friends. “Whether you voted for him or not, whether they’re a Democrat or whether they’re a Republican, these are trying times … During the Cuban missile crisis we stood behind JFK. This is analogous to the Cuban missile crisis.”
    C'mon, now, Gorka. North Korea is not the Soviet Union. Calm down.

    “And I got a call from the head of the Boy Scouts saying it was the greatest speech that was ever made to them, and they were very thankful."
    -President Donald J. Trump

    These threats against the land that holds the world's largest K-Mart cannot be allowed to stand. Hank Johnson is up in arms because if a missile hits Guam it may flip upside down.
    I'll believe corporations are people when Texas executes one.
