Earlier today, President Trump issued a stern, serious warning to North Korea, which goes as follows:
“North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen… he has been very threatening beyond a normal state. They will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before.”
Threats From North Korea
According to NBC News, relations between America and North Korea have been strained for quite some time. For starters, Kim Jong Un’s frequent announcements of working on missiles which can strike the U.S. have not been helpful. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson recently sought out China as an ally, to defuse matters, but to, apparently, no avail.
As a result of North Korea’s strong weapons program, the United Nations implemented very strict deterrents. These deterrents include the disallowance of coal and other goods worth more than $1 billion. North Korea then responded with very severe threats involving the use of nuclear destruction, which engendered President Trump’s aforementioned warning.
The Obama Days Are Over
While the 44th President was often censured for being too weak on foreign policy, the exact opposite is true of President Trump. “Fire and fury like the world has never seen” are very serious words of caution. Kim Jong Un should be very careful. America now has a Commander in Chief who will fight for this nation’s safety. The United States will not sit idly by while North Korea makes threats.
Is There Hope For A Treaty?
Quite frankly, no party benefits from tension between North Korea and the United States. Hopefully, President Trump and Kim Jong Un can meet at some point and reach a mutual agreement.
Whether or not this course of action is possible will most likely depend on Kim Jong Un’s response to President Trump’s warning. Honestly, what did Kim Jong Un expect? Threats of nuclear destruction are serious. One missile can eliminate countless lives and do unspeakable damage.
As previously stated, America is no longer a nation that will bend over backwards while other countries laugh at us. If Kim Jong Un persists with his threats, or worse, just about anything is possible.
Now is the time for all parties involved to seriously consider what their next move will be. President Trump is not messing around. North Korea, think very carefully before you make your next move…
