North Korea seems prepared for war to break out.
With their trigger-happy leader Kim Jong Un consistently testing nuclear missiles in recent times, war will be inevitable at some point.
But what President Trump just said to the communist country may prove that war is much closer than anyone anticipated.
After yet another report of the North Koreans developing a nuclear weapon with the United States in mind, President Trump promised North Korea that their threats would be met with “fire and fury”.
In his statement, President Trump also mentioned the power the United States has against North Korea.
Breitbart News writes:
“North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen,” Trump said.
Trump said that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un had been “very threatening” which was behavior beyond that of a normal country.
“As I said they will be met with fire and fury and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before,” he repeated.
Trump was reacting to reports that North Korea is now developing nuclear weapons for missiles that could potentially strike the United States.
Trump’s national security advisor deems North Korea’s actions as “intolerable”.
Trump’s national security adviser H.R. McMaster warned a week ago that the North Korea’s actions were “intolerable.”
“The president has been very clear about it: He said he’s not going to tolerate North Korea being able to threaten the United States,” McMaster said in an interview with Hugh Hewitt on MSNBC.
With North Korea’s threats becoming more and more real every day, President Trump also negotiated sanctions with the United Nations Security Council.
Other efforts to gain international support against North Korea have been difficult at best. While China initially agreed to work with the United States in our pushback against the communist country, they have fallen through on their commitment.
And North Korea still continues to develop their super weapons—with one report from the Washington Post claiming they have made miniaturized nuclear warheads for their weapons that can reach the United States.
If war really is imminent, President Trump seems at the ready to fight back with “fire and fury”.
