Mike Pence is a quiet, buttoned up gentleman. It takes a lot to ruffle his feathers. As we’ve all seen, he has been in South Korea addressing the North Korean situation and our military might in that region of the world. He gave an interview to CNN’s Dana Bash and predictably, she was questioning Trump’s protection of the US and specifically Seattle, which the NoKos may have the capability of hitting by 2020. As Dana put it… on Trump’s watch. She was met with an awkward silence and a cold stare from Pence until she reworded the question a second time. In my opinion, it was no less insulting, but Pence did answer and it was perfect.
The Vice President spoke from the deck of the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier off the coast of Japan yesterday and he was backdropped by military personnel. It was a somber, patriotic speech and he made it crystal clear that our military is ready and willing to do whatever it takes to stop North Korea and protect our allies, as well as America herself. It was iconic and it felt like a historic moment frozen in time.
From Western Journalism:
Vice President Mike Pence responded with a cold stare when CNN’s Dana Bash suggested Tuesday the safety of the American people could be compromised by North Korea with the Trump administration at the helm.
“You know this is real for you,” Bash began. “You know that there are estimates that North Korea could have a missile ready that could hit the continental U.S., Seattle, by 2020, which is going to be on your watch.”
Pence appeared agitated by the implication of the question: the Trump administration would be at fault. He did not answer, but simply looked sternly at her.
After an awkward silence, Bash asked the question another way.×

“I mean, is that weighing on you? Is that a deadline that you have in mind?” she queried.
“The president has no higher priority than the safety and the security of the American people,” Pence said. “The presence of U.S. forces here in South Korea. Our longstanding commitment to the Asian Pacific and ensuring the security of the continental United States will remain the priority of this administration.”
“The United States will always seek peace, but under President Trump, the shield stands guard and the sword stands ready,” he said. Not only does that give me goosebumps, it is a bold, blatant statement that this President will carry through on what he says. It’s not a threat, it’s a promise. “History will attest, the soldier does not bear the sword in vain,” Pence said. “And those who would challenge our resolve or our readiness should know, we will defeat any attack and meet any use of conventional or nuclear weapons with an overwhelming and effective American response.”
Such speeches have been made throughout military history, especially before the onset of a conflict or a war. Pence said countries should not try to provoke the U.S. and its allies into action. “Enemies of our freedom and this alliance would do well not to test the resolve of this President or the capabilities of the armed forces of the United States of America and our allies,” Pence said. Trump will not leave this mess for another administration. This is one he will embrace and either resolve it or we will go to war. America stands at the brink of conflict and the military is now ready to move. Our enemies should take note and remember that Americans are fighters and this time we aim to win.
