After U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the United States was looking at ways to bring pressure to bear on North Korea over its nuclear program, the North Korean state media came out with a statement.
Well, more of a threat.
They warned the United States of a ‘super-mighty preemptive strike’.
Kimberly Jong-un has ignored admonitions of their only major ally, China, to stop with his nuclear and missile programs; which also defies the UN Security Council sanctions.
Due to this very serious hissy-fit President Trump has taken a hard line with the North Korean leader.
The Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the North’s ruling Workers’ Party, did not mince its words.
“In the case of our super-mighty preemptive strike being launched, it will completely and immediately wipe out not only U.S. imperialists’ invasion forces in South Korea and its surrounding areas but the U.S. mainland and reduce them to ashes,” it said.
“We’re reviewing all the status of North Korea, both in terms of state sponsorship of terrorism as well as the other ways in which we can bring pressure on the regime in Pyongyang to re-engage with us, but re-engage with us on a different footing than past talks have been held,” Tillerson told reporters in Washington on Wednesday.
All of this coming after Pence stated during his tour of Asian allies that the ‘era of strategic patience’ with North Korea is over.
He has also made several other bold moves toward Kimberly Jong-un.

…and that was just yesterday.
Mike Pence has already proved to North Korea that the USA is not backing down from a fight.
During his visit to South Korea, VPOTUS addressed the conflict with very bold words.
Pence warned NK earlier Monday not to test ‘the strength of the armed forces of the Unites States in this region.
…backed up by bold actions.
Our VP made a surprise visit to the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) on Monday. According to reports this broke his security plan.
Pence wanted to get a closer look at North Korean troops. Only fair since tensions have been building in the region.
Backed up by that death stare, it sure looks like he meant it.
So what is it going to be?
War or peaceful solutions?
Honestly, when it comes to Kimberly Jong-un we hope he gets blow to bits.
