The odd little madman in North Korea has made it his lifelong mission to compensate for the fact that he looks like a Matryoshka or Russian nesting doll that was dropped at the precise moment the hair was being painted on. He knows the world is laughing at him, so he’ll teach us a lesson by blowing us into radioactive dust. It’s so much easier than working out.
His recent antics with ballistic missiles, threats of military strikes and nuclear tests have done nothing to favorably impress President Trump or Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. They’ve taken notice but not in a way that should be welcomed by Kim Jong-un. He’s apparently having difficulty recognizing the difference between Hussein Obama and Donald Trump. He’d better study up, the clock is ticking.
Tillerson told reporters in Seoul, South Korea on Friday that a military response is “on the table” if North Korea takes military action threatening South Korean or U.S. forces. He said, “Certainly, we do not want things to get to a military conflict. Obviously if North Korea takes actions that threaten the South Korean forces or our own forces, then that would be met with an appropriate response.”
This is not one of Hussein Obama’s pink lines that was just drawn with water colors. Tillerson and Trump are the kind of American TnT that could blow up all over him. Secretary Tillerson warned, “Let me be very clear. The policy of strategic patience has ended. We are exploring a new range of security and diplomatic measures. All options are on the table.”
He added, “If they elevate the threat of their weapons program to a level that we believe that requires action, that option is on the table.”
Strategic patience is a policy that was first utilized by Bill Clinton, defined as a policy that suggested that the United States could afford to wait for North Korea to make its decision to denuclearize. Strategic passivity and other less flattering descriptions better describe how it led to N Korean going nuclear. America’s patience or passivity with this stupid little man (Kim, not Clinton) has run out. America is serious and is demanding that his nonsense stop immediately. Just one day earlier Secretary Tillerson had warned reporters in Tokyo about the possibility of North Korea conducting another nuclear test.
The North Koreans are engaging in provocation on top of provocation with the Chinese doing nothing to rein in their rogue client state. Kim has always gotten away with doing whatever he pleased under previous presidents. What’s different about the guy in there now? If he’s not careful, he’s going to find out the hard way.
Tillerson next heads to China where the topics of North Korea, South Korea and Japan are certain to come up. So will the deployment of the THAAD missile defense system in South Korea, a response to the continued North Korean threats. They guessed right, that Obama was a coward and a communist who hated America and who would do nothing in response. They’d better not make the same assumptions about the new administration. That won’t end well for them.
