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...

I had such high hopes for the Donald. Sigh!!! Should have known better.

Agreed

 

...and unfortunately, a bunch of American's are going to die as a direct result.

I wish Tronald Dump's mother was still alive. If she was, then Tronald would get up in the morning and get ready for breakfast instead of snorting 3 lines of coke and grabbing his Twitter thing.

Anteater's picture

Somebody please 3D print Donald a Twitter decoder ring,

then we'll park him in front of Mr Rogers Neighborhood

with a box of Wheaties with Bruce Jenner on the cover,

and tell him it was all a bad dream, and it's still 1952,

and America will win the War in Korea any day now.

Why is the U.S.A. bothered about N.K. when they have thousands of 'Anti- Missile' Missiles?

I wouldn't be surprised if Japan is behind all of this; just like Saudi Arabia regarding Iran.

Schlock & Awe is comin' their way, then we'll rebuild it & blow it all up again to show you we should be taken semi-seriously.

We will also try to buy your loyalty, so be sure to take advantage of that too before you show us to the door.

Little chubby from North Korea isn't to concerned if he's got nuclear tipped missiles on his submarines parked up and down both coasts. He's just joining the Russians and Chinese. Wecome to the club little chubby.

Oh please, not another "shock and awe" circus from a president of the U.S.

I would suggest that NK not mess around with Trump.  He's got the military machinery in range and in place by now, the military commanders squarely on his side, and at the next idiotic provocation by NK he will probably flatten all of NK's military establishment without pause.  You aim before you shoot, and we've had a few months to get our aim right.  Trump also has another motivation that Kim should be very careful about -- an attack on NK will probably bring Mueller's dog and pony show to a quick and untimely end in the press, once all the focus is on NK.

Soph's picture

Trump attacks NK --> The Chinese roll over the border and bitch slap the US hard in NK.

Force of arms will not fix this unless China is on his side...and Trump doesn't build alliances, he just pisses other nations off. So in short, the US is fooked however you come at it.

az_patriot's picture

Nah.  The Chinese HATE the North Koreans, and the North Koreans equally hate the Chinese.  If Trump does anything, it probably won't be with ground troops.  He'll destroy North Korea's military infrastructure from air and sea.  The North Koreans couldn't hit the broadside of a barn at 50 yards with their toys, and most of their military equipment is antiquated.  The danger of NK is that they keep lobbing dangerous shit...and one day they'll get lucky.

The question will then become -- will South Korea move north, or China take what's left of NK?

North Korea is not Iraq or Afghanistan. Look no further than the 1950s for the type of war this will be. It can't all be done from the air and ships, it will require a lot of boots on the ground and a lot of US casualties. Your underestimating the North Koreans and overestimating our capabilities to do this without getting hurt.

Don´t you know the common enemy game?

Soph's picture

What the Chinese think about the NK's isn't important. What the Chinese think about having a US/S'Korean puppet state on their border IS what matters. Things have not changed since 1950...the Chinese simply will not allow this, and when they enter the conflict the US is going to get fully, completely, bitch slapped.

The ONLY way this doesn't end with the US having mud all over its face (and shit-pile of dead Americans) is if the Chinese ally up with the US and they roll in together. This will only happen if the US agrees to the Chinese placing another puppet in power in NK. There is simply no other way for this to end positively if the military option is used.

Seems like a good solution to me.
Total Chinese territory is not increased by much, and
if the deal includes no nukes (with a verification process) in the (old)
NK territory, world would be a safer place.

Very good comment.

And if Jewmerica withdraws its troops and THAAD from SK.

If we go to war in NK we need the support of the Russians. I would rather have them as an allie than a foe

StarGate's picture

China is probably in agreement;
they just do not want to do the work.

just the tip's picture

nothing is going to stop mueller.  it's not about russia.  it's about data mining for 2020.  nothing else.  he may go under radar, but he's going to be there until a 2020, and if trump is re-elected he'll be there until 2024.

I have a better idea.   you and Soros and general mad dog trinkets on his chest can grab a row boat and visit nk and start the fight unless you are all hiding underground.

Otherwise just leave twatter alone and let reasonable people on both sides see if they can stop this sad excuse for diplomacy.

Smedley's Butler's picture

Why are his arms crossed like that? That's a weird position to be in to make that declaration.

I usually do not listen to body language people since its really subjective, but this could be an easy interpretation.

Not sure he wanted to be making that statement.

Kill off the Jong-un family and the North Korean regime will collapse. It is predicated on Jong-un worship with the people worshipping a picture of him, his dead father and mother as the trinity. With the religious aspect dead North Korea will collapse into a Chinese province.

That won't likely happen from the outside as the US and China aren't going to kill him and killing a head of state is illegal.

However; I guarantee you that that group of generals surrounding him see a fat turkey and at the right moment they will toss him in the roasting pan.

Laughing.Man's picture

"...killing a head of state is illegal."

So is invading countries and or bombing them for shit and giggles.  There's no such thing as illegal on the International stage.

Those bags of bones worry me more than glorious leadel ever has. Always swarming him at armlength max. while rubbing their hands and signalling he's doing well like one does to a small child.

They spared the food from their own mouths to keep him in cookooland. He aint got a clue, if you ask me. But he embodies their agenda. And taking him out might just serve their goal aka his purpose.

Nice.

One thing to remember is that North Korea has always been a proxy for China. An expendable one at that.

First the report of a minature nuke is speculaton by Japan. North Korea is actually more dangerous with other nukes. The US can shoot their ICBMs down. The real danger is them trying to bring a nuke into a US harbor or smuggle one into the United States.

However; the Western media keeps reporting NK propaganda as real news. North Korean news is designed to fool its people into believing in the supreme power of Kim. That is why he constantly threatens. Now Trump is playing the same game.

This shit has to be dealt with before there is more missles and submarines, I'm all for get it on Donkey Kong!

It took this asshole promoted and encouraged by China to get to this, now time to get ugly...

I can not believe any Kabuki from Washington. Can you?

This is transparently a bid to have international pressure brought to bear on the NK Oompa Loompa through its leashmaster to the north.

That may fail. There may be war. If so, alas and alack, but we live in a military empire in which you habituate yourself to such things. There's always "marching" and "writing your congressman" if you don't like it, or, more daringly...casting "a protest vote" in the next "election." Mind, that's the nuclear option; don't try it at home.

Dilluminati's picture

If trump flattens the 5 mile radius surrounding that cocksucker in North Korea people will cheer.

That agitating asshole in NK doesn't get it, he's drunk on his false news polls in NK and about to get a very very rude awakening.

I'm hooray for USA and screw Kim Jung Un.

Hooray USA and screw Kim Jung Un.

& fuck China and their enabling posture on all of this..

wind blows their way? too focking bad
