Trump Threatens North Korea With "Fire And Fury Like The World Has Never Seen Before"

Tyler Durden's picture

Speaking at a press event at his golf resort in Bedminster, N.J., President Trump offered a stern warning to the rogue dictator of North Korea, Kim Jong Un, saying that he "best not make any more threats to the United States" or they "will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen."

"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States.  They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen."

 

"He has been very threatening beyond a normal statement.  And, as I said, they will be met with fire, fury, and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before."

 

All of which spooked markets...though we're sure a 'Buy The Fucking Fire & Fury Dip' rally will commence shortly.

Of course, first thing this morning we reported that according to a 500-page report by the Japanese Defense Ministry, North Korea may now be in possession of a miniature nuclear warhead. That said, the report did not move the market because the Japanese report was largely inconclusive and did not claim with certainty that this is the case.

Shortly thereafter, the exact same narrative escalated when the WaPo echoed what Japan said, only it "confirmed" that North Korea had successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that could fit inside its missiles, "crossing a key threshold on the path to becoming a full-fledged nuclear power, U.S. intelligence officials have concluded in a confidential assessment."

As the WaPo added, the analysis completed last month by the Defense Intelligence Agency came on the heels of another intelligence assessment that sharply raised the official estimate for the total number of bombs in the communist country’s atomic arsenal.

“The IC [intelligence community] assesses North Korea has produced nuclear weapons for ballistic missile delivery, to include delivery by ICBM-class missiles,” the assessment states, in an excerpt read to The Washington Post. The assessment’s broad conclusions were verified by two U.S. officials familiar with the document. It is not yet known whether the reclusive regime has successfully tested the smaller design, although North Korean officially last year claimed to have done so.

Key takeaway...it seems the President has had some extra time to catch up on Game of Thrones during his vacation...

Smart comment.

Better safe than sorry.

I'm making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do... http://disq.us/url?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.counts.top%3ACd8iFJnWWuHOVCLsjT1...

And a revival of 70's and 80's music.  Particularly "It's the Final Countdown" comes to my mind.  I guess growing up under the "threat" of MAD makes one not worry about it even when it is quite possible.

Gee… the encouraging news is that I hear about NK ICBMs reaching LA, NY and Boston….

..and the implication seems to be that it is in NK’s interests to just allow the criminal element in Chicago, Baltimore and other hell-hole metro’s to wreak havoc organically.

.. those freaking commies are devious.

I was on a nice little stand-up Hawker coming into Teterboro when the “Shock and Awe” announcement was radio’d.

I said “this can’t possibly end well”.

I was right.

It becomes clearer by the day that DJT is a geopolitcally undeducated clown who is a very easy toy in the hands of the neocon war state. Pence is a direct,  (enducated) war state asset, though, and even worse. And I had really  thought that the Obozo/Killary combine was a bad choice....

Fire and fury doesn't leave you with much else to say does it?

What is implied is they are able to hit LA, NY and Boston.

Or, they could just smuggle one into China, load it on a container ship, and sail to any port they wanted to. Boom. And no one even knows where it came from.

Archibald Buttle's picture

wait... they have stealth container ships now?

Koba the Dread's picture

So are Russia, China, India, Pakistan, Israel, France, the UK and the US able to "hit" those American Sodoms. Given the right set of pressures, any one of the nuclear powers listed above would be willing, some delighted, to do the deed.

Words are cheap. Kim talks alot. That anyone wearing combat boots might be afraid of a talkative chihuahua is ludicrous. Surely if, as the US brags, it can shoot down thousands of incoming Russian ICBMs before they reach their target--state-of-the art, up-to-the-minute ICBMs, surely it can shoot down any mythological ICBMs the Koreans can chunk into the stratosphere.  Well, unless the millinery-unindustrous complex has been lying to us since 1948. Hmmm. That's a proposition worth meditating on.

ghfc…

so “fire and fury" is different from “shock and awe”    how ?????

 

Koba the Dread's picture

"Sound and fury" signify nothing. "Shock and awe" is merely a corruption of Gomer Pyle's "Aw, shucks!"

MAD was more stable. We had a couple of mistakes and both sides blinked during the missiles of October but MAD effectively worked for 40 years. The problem has never the Soviets and the US. Its these pip squeak 3rd world nations like Iran, Pakistan and N Korea that will be our undoing

I loved Trump's bombastic nature against the Witch during the campaign, but this kind of rhetoric on the world stage is very dangerous.  Teddy Roosevelt once said it was good to "speak softly and carry a big stick".  Trump is unwise to "speak pompously and carry that nuclear big stick".

Trump is completely neutered by (neocons),AIPAC and CFR.

We saw it first when the courts took over his right to decide on immigration,then the Congress/Senate took over his right to decide the foreign policy(at least the appearance of deciding,I know no US President acctualy decides anything like that).And he approved it by signing that bill ,obediently

(They) only left him the right to decide where to play golf ,vacation and tweet,as we can see.

Trump has always pronounced himself enough to believe in the false dichotomy of "exceptionalism" for American Hegemony.  How can this be construed as "neutered by Deep State"?  He also has continued war crimes of previous presidencies and even agreed to intensify America's illegal presence in Yemen, Libya, and Afghanistan.  Obama supporters also believed in the lie that he was for real 'peace' and was believed to 'have no choice.'  Let's define this plainly, they are both War Criminals and should be denounced as such.  They are all liars and using populism to fool the American people.

veritas semper vinces's picture

yes.You're right.I did say the " appearance  of deciding"

Trump had really odd body language in the video clip of him saying this. His arms were crssed very tightly and he seemed like he wanted to shrink into his chair. I have similar body language when I am sick with the flu.  He also kept flashing the stink eye toward someone or something to his right. I was very strange, almost like he was captured by the enemy and was forced to say this.

Dammit Walter's picture

Trumps vocabulary and delivery style is akin to Dick and Jane.

See Kim.  See Kim launch.

Kim is very bad.  Kim is not good.  Kim is very, very bad.

We will launch.  Our missiles are good.  You will love my big beautiful missile.

Could someone help Trump out of the swamp.  He's up to his neck in muck and I don't think he can get out without some help.

Remind me again how many nations have dropped nukes on others?

Nexus789's picture

It is highly unlikely that Iran has developed nukes. Stop interfering in other countries would be a good idea. 

11b40's picture

The seed of our undoing was when we used nukes in WW2. You can never put the Genie back in the bottle.

Now, over 70 years later, it is obvious to all that if you have nukes, you have protection. Pakistan is a great example. Libya is a great example of what can happen if you surrender your nuclear program. You think little Kim doesn't know how Daffey Duck died?

Koba the Dread's picture

Wrong! It will be the little pipsqueaks in the US military that wil be our undoing. Look at a photograph of General Dwight Eisenhower from 1945. He had maybe three ribbons on his chest. Now look at that little fairy General Petraeus. He's got so much ribbon and brass on his chest he tilts when he walks. Pipsqueaks need the ribbons; real men don't.

Here's something to keep you awake at night: the US has manufactured approximately 70,000 nuclear weapons since the creation of the atom bomb. In that time, the US has had a 100% safety rate for negligent discharge (no accidental nuclear explosions). 70 years of a perfect safety record.

Do you think Pakistan, India, or China will be able to handle their toys quite so well?

No worries. Kim will just promise something "Even more Fierier And Furyer Like The World Has Neverer Seener Before...er".

You cannot beat a God. Not even a fat one that went to boarding school in Switzerland. Unless maybe you are a fat little God who went to school at West Point.

The little NK is taunting him into a rash move however, I would NOT want to be in SK or Japan right now. The little korean has a few screws loose as does his military.
