North Korea Just Threatened One Of Our Closest Allies With Direct Nuclear Strike – Thanks Trump

Trump wants to fan his peacock feathers and strut around in front of North Korea, showing them how big and bad we are and how they shouldn’t mess with us. Other countries do stand behind us, but in their own ways. Australia, for instance, threatened additional sanctions against North Korea if they don’t behave themselves:

“[These sanctions are to send] the clearest possible message to North Korea, that its behaviour will not be tolerated, that a nuclear-armed North Korea is not acceptable to our region.”

But North Korea does not like that, and they’re starting to signal that they’re done with this. A spokesperson for their foreign ministry hit Australia back with:

“If Australia persists in following the US moves to isolate and stifle [North Korea] and remains a shock brigade of the US master, this will be a suicidal act of coming within the range of the nuclear strike of the strategic force of [North Korea].”

And yes, this really is because of Donald Trump and his peacock-strutting:

“It is entirely attributable to the nuclear threat escalated by the US and its anachronistic policy hostile to [North Korea] that the situation on the Korean Peninsula is inching close to the brink of war in an evil cycle of increasing tensions.”

After lying about sending the Carl Vinson attack group to the Sea of Japan, the Pentagon actually sent that group up there to return North Korea’s saber rattling. The problem is that North Korea has made no secret of the fact that they don’t especially appreciate any of this, and given that they’re a nuclear power, we need to handle them much differently than we are.

Launching nukes at anybody at all will start a nuclear war, which will probably result in the end of the world as we know it. While we can’t kowtow to them, we do need to find a better way to handle them.

North Korea’s foreign ministry spokesperson also said that Australia was acting against peace, and that North Korea was justifiably acting in self defense. They also said:

“What [Australia] uttered can never be pardoned.”

Thanks, Trump.
