Trump just warned North Korea...with a couple tweets.
After many years of failure,countries are coming together to finally address the dangers posed by North Korea. We must be tough & decisive!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 8, 2017
"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States," he threatens. Tensions between the two countries boiled over during early August, especially with the successful missile launches of North Korea and alarming behavior of Kim Jong Un. Instead of diplomatic tact, the commander in chief chose an alternate route, which hinders more than helps. "North Korea has successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can be affixed to missiles, greatly expanding the country's range and power," a Los Angeles Times article reports.
The severity of the situation grows more apparent by the day, and Trump does little to assuage people's concerns; he only adds to their fear. Even though North Korea's power pales in comparison to that of the United States, the country seems like an unstoppable force, becoming even stronger over time. Even Trump acknowledges the leader's massive influence. "Trump added that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un 'has been very threatening beyond a normal state, and as I said, they will be met with fire, fury and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before,'" he says.
He means business, even referring to his own comments as weaker than what he intended to say. He wants North Korea to know how "tough" the U.S. gets, no matter what the cost. But the costs seem too great to undertake. North Korea threatens "shameful defeat and final doom" if the U.S. "persists in extreme military adventure, sanctions and pressure." Basically, the world looks screwed. The last thing any country needs is a full-blown nuclear war, but between the egotistical, macho leaders, nuclear war seems more like a reality than a nightmare.
Where's Obama when you need him!? Hell, where's Bush when you need him!?
