President Trump TAUNTS ‘Short and Fat’ Kim Jong Un
President Trump continues his visit to Asia which began in Japan and now finds the president having visited South Korea and Vietnam.
Prior to the visit, the president sent the battle groups of the USS Ronald Reagan, the Theodore Roosevelt and the Nimitz. These groups entered the exercise area to perform drills they tell us. However the real reason for this show of force was to remind North Korea and the world who’s the boss.
These exercises were the first of their kind since a 2007 exercise near Guam. In that exercise three U.S. carrier strike groups performed similar operations in the Western Pacific, according to the U.S. Navy’s 7th Fleet.
In other words, during the entire Obama presidency, our 7th Fleet’s readiness was never tested in that region of the world.
Recall not long ago, Kim Jong Un tested his H-bomb over the Pacific Ocean after calling President Trump a ‘deranged dotard.’
It appears that the United States’ new stance on dealing with Fat Boy Kim may have ruffled his latest coif.
Unfortunately for the Kim, Trump forced the United Nations on his side. Japan is the only country to ever suffer a nuclear attack, and they call Kim’s threat “completely unacceptable.” Who could blame them. Kim’s antics disgusts other nations as well.
As the Foreign Desk reports:
The U.S. president, who has not shrunk from fighting fire with fire in his rhetoric on North Korea, sent another message Friday on Twitter.
“Kim Jong Un of North Korea, who is obviously a madman who doesn’t mind starving or killing his people, will be tested like never before,” Trump said, a day after announcing additional sanctions on Pyongyang.
While the Rocket Man contemplates his suicide mission, the sanctions have already begun taking their toll.
Just yesterday we broke the news that China finally cut off funding to North Korea. Short of war, this move by China may be the straw that broke the fat Korean’s back.
Trump’s strategy of choking off funding to the rogue nation charts a new course with strict UN sanctions.
Chinese banks will now halt financial services and loans to new and existing North Korean customers.
Basically foreign banks will have to make a choice. They can either do business with the Unites States, or they can do business with the rogue regime. And companies have the power to turn away anyone funding North Korea
Could There Still be Talks?
Tensions continue to mount between the United States and North Korea. However, President Trump moves forward with diplomatic efforts, despite the rhetoric of Kim. President Trump knows the Kim Dynasty has been a global cancer dating back to 1953. But the country lacks resources, and is ruled by a madman stuck in circa 60s diplomacy and weaponry.
Earlier this year, Rex Tillerson made headlines when he said all military options were on the table. He definitely reiterated the same position of President Trump. As the Foreign Desk continues:
Asked about the North Korean hydrogen bomb threat, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told ABC that diplomatic efforts will continue but all military options were still on the table.
“We are quite challenged” with the escalating rhetoric, he said, but hoped increased sanctions and “voices from every corner of the world” would help lead Kim to talks.
A senior U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that the United States is taking Kim’s threat seriously. Such a test would be a “game-changer” if North Korea actually did it, the official said.
But the official said there were questions about Pyongyang’s technical capabilities and Washington does not give “too much credence” to Pyongyang taking such action. “There’s a certain amount of bluster that’s taken for granted when you’re dealing with North Korea,” the official told Reuters.
But the U.S. has more than sanctions, as the military exercises suggest.
President Trump continued his tough talk against Pyongyang in a speech to business leaders at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Danang, Vietnam. He commented that the region’s future “must not be held hostage to a dictator’s twisted fantasies of violent conquest and nuclear blackmail,” referring to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Trump had also delivered a sharp warning to North Korea in a speech at South Korea’s parliament. In that speech, the president warned Kim: “Do not underestimate us. And do not try us.”
President Trump will err on the side of diplomacy, at first. But if pushed, he will devastate North Korea and do the world a big favor. The world awaits a civilized North Korea. And the fact that the United Nations has allowed Kim to behave as he has only showcases its ineffectiveness.
