US President Donald Trump may be paving the way for a possible world war with his latest statement. In late July, North Korea had fired test missiles into the Japanese ocean. According to reports, these missiles have the power to reach Alaska and even New York. And a report from Washington Post states that North Korea has developed nuclear warheads that can fit into these missiles. Donald Trump isn’t having it, and says that North Korea’s latest threat “will be met with fire and fury”. Maybe the President has been watching the latest episode of Game of Thrones Season 7?!
Since the Kim Jong-un led missile tests, the UN Security Council unanimously decreed on banning North Korean exports as well as limiting investments, which has prompted a threat from the dictatorship nation, stating that they will make the “US pay a price”. What’s the cost, and will it civilians have to pay that price, is still left to be seen.
President Donald Trump looked furious as he addressed the press, stating that Kim Jong-un “has been very threatful, beyond a normal statement”. He then went on to make his own “beyond a normal statement” when he said, “North Korea best not make any more threats to the US. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen”.
The report by the Washington Post detailed an intelligence community report saying it “assesses North Korea has produced nuclear weapons for ballistic missile delivery, to include delivery by ICBM-class missiles”.
North Korea’s state-run propaganda news channel KCNA said that Pyongyang would “not put our self-defence nuclear deterrent on the negotiating table”. It added that since it was the United States that drafted the sanction made by the UN Security Council, it would “pay the price for its crimes… thousands of times”.
