North Korea does not appear to be backing down. In fact, they are threatening us with nuclear weapons again if we strike them militarily. Right now, we have a Naval strike group on their way there, if they already haven’t arrived in the vicinity. I understand there is a lot going on in that area from surveillance to intelligence and the US is not kidding around on this. This is a holiday week in North Korea and Kim Jong-un is said to want to conduct a nuclear test in honor of it.
President Trump is indeed correct… North Korea is looking for trouble and a lot of it. In Trump’s meeting with President Xi Jinping last week, he seemed to indicate they would help out with North Korea. We will see. I heard the Chinese sent 150,000 troops to the North Korean border yesterday… that’s not a lot for them, but it does indicate they expect trouble. I hope the Chinese will play ball, but I fear President Trump is severely underestimating them on this. Trade is not the only goal for the Chinese. That is why they have been building their military up.
From the New York Post:
President Trump said “North Korea is looking for trouble” just hours after the rogue regime vowed to respond with nuclear weapons to any military strikes by the United States.
“North Korea is looking for trouble,” Trump tweeted. “If China decides to help, that would be great. If not, we will solve the problem without them! USA.”
A US aircraft carrier group led by the USS Carl Vinson is steaming to the Korean Peninsula following continued missile tests by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
North Korea said it was prepared to respond to any military operations by the US.
“Our revolutionary strong army is keenly watching every move by enemy elements with our nuclear sight focused on the U.S. invasionary bases not only in South Korea and the Pacific operation theater but also in the U.S. mainland,” the country’s state-run Rodong Sinmun newspaper said.
North Korea is once again threatening “tough counteraction” after the US has called them on their continued ballistic missile and nuclear testing. “We never beg for peace but we will take the toughest counteraction against the provocateurs in order to defend ourselves by powerful force of arms and keep to the road chosen by ourselves,” the official Korean Central News Agency reported in English, quoting a Foreign Ministry official. “We will hold the U.S. wholly accountable for the catastrophic consequences to be entailed by its outrageous actions,” the statement released Tuesday concluded. A version of the statement in Korean said the country will “not miss a chance to sweep the imperialist group with a nuclear fire of justice,” but did not elaborate on what that meant.
ABC’s This Week asked Rex Tillerson on Sunday about what message the strikes in Syria should send to North Korea. He replied: “I think the message that any nation can take is if you violate international norms, if you violate international agreements, if you fail to live up to commitments, if you become a threat to others, at some point a response is likely to be undertaken.” The administration’s objective for North Korea is a “denuclearized Korean Peninsula” and not regime change, Tillerson said. Of course, to get one, you may have to do the other here.
According to the official Rodong Sinmun newspaper, a statement for North Korea’s Foreign Ministry called the strikes against Syria “unpardonable.” It added: “Our tremendous military muscle with a nuclear force as its pivot serves as a treasured sword of justice for foiling the U.S. shameless high-handed and arbitrary practices and aggression moves and protecting the sovereignty of the country and the right of the nation to existence.” One wonders if the crazy little troll in North Korea will carry out his threats. If he does, the US military will come down on him with the full force of America. Then the question becomes… do the Chinese want to dance?
