North Korea just had it’s ‘largest ever’ live-fire artillery drills on Tuesday. Rockets and torpedoes were fired at mock enemy warships.
It seems Kimberly Jong-un isn’t done thrown his tantrum.
Question is, will he take things to the next level?
He has always threatened war and nuclear attacks, trying to show muscle, but never really followed through.
Threatening nuclear war just seems to be something the North Korean dictator likes to do. He probably does this to his personal staff all the time.
‘The floors are dirty! Nuke the maid!!’
The eastern coastal town of Wonsan was lined with HUNDREDS of tanks. It was another ‘show’ of military strength and celebration of 85 years since the North Korean army was created; so, a different type of fireworks display.
Kimberly saluted the military as he watched.
The exercises on Tuesday, fired over 300 large-calibre artillery pieces including submarine torpedo-attacks.
South Korea responded a day later by conducting joint military live-fire drills with the US near their border with North Korea.
According to the Daily Mail: And in a defiant bit of timing, South Korea have announced that key parts of a contentious US missile defense system have been installed.
The South’s trumpeting of progress in setting up the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense system, or THAAD, comes as high-powered US military assets converge on the Korean Peninsula and as a combative North Korea signals possible nuclear and missile testing.
On the same day, a US guided-missile submarine docked in South Korea.
All the key players are being put in place to start a war.
Question is will one of these opponents fire the first strike? If so, who is it going to be and should it be the US first?
Kimberly Jong-un is someone who would use a nuclear bomb. To avoid that scenario America and South Korea would have to hit him first and cripple him.
The same report states: On Monday, President Donald Trump said dictator Jong-Un isn’t as strong as he claims to be, and he blamed the international community for not doing more to rein him in.
The ‘status quo’ on North Korea is ‘unacceptable,’ Trump told members of the United Nations Security Council at the White House.
‘The council must be prepared to impose additional and stronger sanctions,’ Trump said.
Senior analyst, Jonathan Pollack, at the Brookings Institution says the back-and-forth threats between the US and North Korea ‘raises the stakes’, according to CBS.
At the end of the day, this drill was conducted for their 85yr celebration.
It is somewhat of a tradition for North Korea to show their ‘military strength’ during holidays and events.
The only difference is that their threats are no longer being ignored.
Is Trump doing the right thing by calling their bluff?
