WEB Notes: It is a circus people, a made house! ‘We’re locked and loaded boys‘. What is this a B-rated movie? Reality TV, Reality TV. Personally, I think they should kick it up a notch. If Trump can body slam CNN, I think he and ol Kim Jung Un should step into the ring. People would pay for this. You could charge people $50 bucks for this event, think about the increase in GDP and not a single troop or civilian would have to die. They could duke it out in a world class match of silly global “leaders,” epic, just epic!…
It is truly starting to look like the US will go after North Korea before Iran. We have seen a lot of rhetoric toward North Korea in the past, but we are in completely un-charted territory at this point. It could all settle down, but that is unlikely. I feel a lot of this is a distraction and believe there is much taking place in actions against Iran. We know they are a much bigger threat to globalism than North Korea ever could be. We also know Trump plans to call Iran “non-compliant” later this year concerning their nuclear program. As usually, we will have to wait and see.
U.S. military strategists at the Pentagon have a military solution in place to address the growing threat emanating from North Korea, but they are holding their fire in favor of ongoing diplomatic efforts by Washington and its allies, Defense Secretary James Mattis said Thursday.
The Pentagon chief remained largely mum on the details of that military solution, which theoretically would curb Pyongyang’s efforts to develop a nuclear-capable, ballistic missile arsenal, except to say any military option would be a multilateral one involving a number of regional powers in the Pacific.
“Do I have military options? Of course, I do. That’s my responsibility, to have those. And we work very closely with allies to ensure that this is not unilateral either … and of course there’s a military solution,” Mr. Mattis told reporters en route to meet with senior leaders in the technology sector in Seattle and California.
Trump: “Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!” Trump wrote on Twitter, a day after his defense secretary said the United States was ready to counter any threat from Pyongyang. – Source: Reuters
