The United States is done drawing lines in the sand and is instead backing talk with action.
In the latest warning to North Korea, the United States has promised to bomb the hell out of the hermit regime is they attempt to test another rocket launch.
To provide force to these warnings, the US Navy has stationed to warships just off the coast of the Korean Peninsula–both are posed to strike and one is just 300 mi from the suspected launch zone.
The North isn’t happy:
“By relentlessly bringing in a number of strategic nuclear assets to the Korean peninsula, the U.S. is gravely threatening the peace and safety and driving the situation to the brink of a nuclear war,” said North Korea’s statement.
North Korea is not believed to have a deliverable long-range nuclear weapon, according to U.S. experts, nor does it yet possess an intercontinental missile.
South Korea’s top diplomat said today that the U.S. would consult with Seoul before taking any serious measures. “U.S. officials, mindful of such concerns here, repeatedly reaffirmed that (the U.S.) will closely discuss with South Korea its North Korea-related measures,” foreign minister Yun Byung told a special parliamentary meeting. “In fact, the U.S. is working to reassure us that it will not, just in case that we might hold such concerns.”
Yesterday, AFF Media reported that there were a number of suspicious and concerning reports streaming out of the mysterious dictatorship.
First, we were told that foreign journalists stationed in Pyongyang, the nation’s capital, had been ordered to prepare for an early morning evacuation.
Second, we were notified that the North Koreans have seemingly prepped a nuclear facility for another test–a test that was described as imminent.
These two startling developments came on the heel of Trump’s meeting with China’s Xi and as China moved 150,000 troops to their border in the North.
Thank God For Mattis!
