The back and forth language between North Korea and the President Donald Trump just keeps ratcheting up.
Trump’s last comment was the U.S. was ready for any action by North Korea, that the U.S. was ‘locked and loaded.’
North Korea has now announced in its state run newspaper that it is “capable of fighting any war the U.S. wants”
From Fox News:
The assertion was made in an editorial that also states the Paektusan army is now “on the standby to launch fire into its mainland, waiting for an order of final attack.”
The editorial also argues that the United States “finds itself in an ever worsening dilemma, being thrown into the grip of extreme security unrest by the DPRK. This is tragicomedy of its own making. … If the Trump administration does not want the American empire to meet its tragic doom in its tenure, they had better talk and act properly.”
They demand he speak and act properly, meaning do what they want?
Not going to happen.
The president’s recent comments are in response to Kim threatening a missile attack on U.S. territory Guam.
“If anything happens to Guam, there’s going to be big trouble in North Korea,” Trump said.
He’s calling their bluff.
And China also threw North Korea under the bus, saying they would be neutral if North Korea attacked first.
There are also back channel negotiations under way.
Kim would be best to find a way to back out gracefully, lest he really test the question…
