President Trump and North Korea’s dictator Kim Jung Un have been trading heated rhetoric for over a week, after Un threatened to nuke the island territory of Guam.
The President promised Un that if he launches any missiles at the U.S. territory, he will be met with “fire and fury” unlike anything the world has ever seen. His remarks were roundly criticized by Democrats, Republicans, and the media as being dangerous and far too strong for a U.S. President, however, they were effective, or so it would seem.
According to a report from the Daily Caller, Un was the first to blink in the war of words, backing off from his prior promise to annihilate Guam and the U.S. military personnel living there.
If you thought President Trump didn’t know what he’s doing, think again.
From the Caller:
Kim, according to North Korean state media, told the North Korean strategic rocket force that he “would watch a little more the foolish and stupid conduct of the Yankees,” giving the U.S. time to reassess the situation. “He said that he wants to advise the U.S. to take into full account gains and losses with clear head whether the prevailing situation is more unfavorable for any party.”
“In order to defuse the tensions and prevent the dangerous military conflict on the Korean peninsula, it is necessary for the U.S. to make a proper option first and show it through action,” North Korean state media explained Tuesday. “The U.S. should stop at once arrogant provocations against the DPRK and unilateral demands and not provoke it any longer,” it added. North Korea often presents the cessation of hostilities against it as the terms for de-escalation.
While lowering his sword, the young North Korean dictator stressed that he may still carry out his plan if the U.S. does not change its approach to his country.
Kim stated “that if the Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous reckless actions on the Korean peninsula and in its vicinity, testing the self-restraint of the DPRK, the latter will make an important decision as it already declared, warning the U.S. that it should think reasonably and judge properly not to suffer shame that it is hit by the DPRK.”
For as long as this humble journalist can remember, North Korea has been using saber rattling to extort the world out of free goodies and concessions, and thanks to the President, it appears as if that practice has finally come to an end. Apparently, he does know what he’s doing.
Once again, the media was busted pushing fake news.
