Kim’s Deadly Gamble

No one would deliberately provoke a world power and risk total annihilation unless they were completely detached from reality. Such seems to be the case with Kim Jong Un, who must think that Donald Trump is the same kind of gutless blowhard that Obama, Clinton, and Carter were. He has stated he plans to launch missiles to land in the waters near Guam as early as mid-month. Maybe he considers China as his bodyguard from American might, or else his “advisers” tell him what he wants to hear, rather than the truth, at the very real risk of being shot.

North Korea details Guam strike plan and calls Trump warning ‘nonsense’

Pyongyang says it will launch four missiles into waters ‘30-40km’ off US territory in clear attempt to goad the US president
North Korea has defied threats of “fire and fury” from Donald Trump, deriding his warning as a “load of nonsense” and announcing a detailed plan to launch missiles aimed at the waters off the coast of the US Pacific territory of Guam.

General Kim Rak Gyom, the head of the country’s strategic forces, declared: “Sound dialogue is not possible with such a guy bereft of reason and only absolute force can work on him”.

NBC Slam: Trump and N.K. Sound Like ‘a School Yard Squabble’

If the stakes weren’t so potentially grave, it might otherwise sound like a school yard squabble,” quipped Anchor Lester Holt as he came on the air. “The war of words escalating tonight between the United States and North Korea over nothing less than nuclear weapons.”

Clinton deal in 1994 with North Korea was supposed to freeze Pyongyang’s nuclear program in return for fuel and efforts towards normalized political and economic relations. Here’s Clinton getting taken to the cleaners by Kim Jong-Il, who later violated the framework and started developing nuclear weapons at secret sites.

Before I take your questions, I’d like to say just a word about the framework with North Korea that Ambassador Gallucci signed this morning. This is a good deal for the United States,” Clinton said at the press conference.

“North Korea will freeze and then dismantle its nuclear program. South Korea and our other allies will be better protected. The entire world will be safer as we slow the spread of nuclear weapons”

Obama administration knew about North Korea’s miniaturized nukes

Obama officials tried to downplay the DIA assessment to prevent it from being used to force the president to employ a more assertive North Korea policy.

It was clear what Obama officials were doing in 2013. The DIA report represented inconvenient facts that threatened President Obama’s North Korea “strategic patience” policy — a policy to do nothing about North Korea and kick this problem down the road to the next president.


Tillerson: Trump Spoke to North Korea ‘in a Language That Kim Jong Un Can Understand’

“North Korea’s rhetoric has just ratcheted up louder and louder and more threatening, so I think the president – what the president is doing is sending a strong message to North Korea in language that Kim Jong-Un can understand, because he doesn’t seem to understand diplomatic language,” he said.

“I think the president just wanted to be clear to the North Korean regime on the U.S. unquestionable ability to defend itself, will defend itself and its allies, and I think it was important that he deliver that message to avoid any miscalculation on their part,” Tillerson added.

Guam Governor: ‘I Want’ A President Who Will Retaliate
