Trump Threatens "Little Rocket Man", Says Kim "Won't Be Around Much Longer" As North Korea Holds Huge Anti-US Rally

Tyler Durden's picture

The war of words between Trump and Kim escalated once again in the late hours on Saturday night, when President Trump sent another belligerent tweet directed at North Korea saying that if the country's foreign minister was speaking for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in his threatening speech at the United Nations, "they won't be around much longer."

"Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at U.N. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won't be around much longer!"

The president referred to a speech by North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho earlier Saturday at the United Nations in which he called Trump “a mentally deranged person full of megalomania” who is holding “the nuclear button.” Ri said by repeatedly calling Kim "Rocket Man," Trump is making "our rocket’s visit to the entire U.S. mainland inevitable all the more." The foreign minister also said Trump is a "gambler who grew old using threats, frauds and all other schemes to acquire a patch of land." Ri jumped into the nickname game as well, saying  Americans call Trump the "Commander in Grief," "Lyin' King," and "President Evil."

Ri continued, saying Trump has turned the White House "into a noisy marketing place" and is making the U.N. "a gangsters’ nest where money is respected and bloodshed is the order of the day"

Just prior to Ri's UN speech, the Pentagon announced that USAF B-1B bombers and F-15 jets carried out a show of force Saturday off the coast of North Korea. The statement said that it was "the farthest point north of the Demilitarized Zone, which separates North and South Korea, that any U.S. fighter or bomber aircraft has flown in the 21st century."

Meanwhile, on Saturday a huge rally gathered Saturday in Pyongyang’s Kim Il Sung Square for a large anti-U.S. protest. According to AP, a parade of marchers carried signs with slogans such as “decisive revenge” and “death to the American imperialists.” They shouted phrases such as “total destruction,” according to the Korean Central News Agency, the state news service.

The crowd included workers, officials and students, KCNA said.

The rally capped two days of response to Trump’s combative speech at the United Nations earlier in the week. The U.S. president mocked Kim as a “Rocket Man” on a “suicide mission,” and said that the U.S. “will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea” if forced to defend itself or its allies. North Korea responded on Friday by distributing a rare statement directly from Kim. He called Trump a “mentally deranged U.S. dotard,” and said his country would consider the “highest level of hard-line countermeasure in history.”

When the US reservists are called up I'll choose not to believe it. Until then, President USFL is just spouting off like a broken record. He's losing all credibility every day he opens his piehole or hires another Democrat bankster into his regime.

... Kim "Won't Be Around Much Longer"

“We came. We saw. He died.” Trump sounds just like Crooked Hillary.

Engdahl says Kim Jong Un is false opposition.

Engdahl says that Kim Jong Un lived in Switzerland from 1991 until 2000. He attended the Liebefeld Steinhölzli school in Köniz near Bern. The strongest hint that Kim Jong Un is a "Pentagon" puppet and not a communist (Chinese) puppet is that he had China's best friend in Pyongyang, Jang Sung-taek, executed. He also ordered the systematic execution of all other members of Jang's family including children and grandchildren (and others that were considered too close to China).

Other hints are that he is usefully (to the US) provocative and doesn't seem to listen to China.

Engdahl also thinks North Korea is an Pentagon Vassal State, but it seems more likely that Kim Jong Un is indeed a "Pentagon" man but that North Korea is (i.e., will be treated as) an enemy state.

Remember: The first rule for fighting a (real) war is to place your own puppet as the leader of the enemy.

Also, one should not forget that Trump, Obama, Bush and Clinton are all Jews.

I'd like to knwo which Drumf supporter can defend their dear leader's subtle diplomacy with a straight face.

Perhaps TMos? Seriously though, if this is what passes for leadership and diplomacy, god, or goddess save the world, eh?

I'd post a pertinent link but Oldwood is ready to fall on me, so I'll resist the temptation.

How about a song? No?

Okay then... ;-)

Yep I, as you do, like my traitors sauve and sophisticated like Obama or Bill Cliton, so at least I can marvel at their poise as they destroy everything we have.

Trump's method is no worse than the honey mouthed crap that has gone before.

And his 'diplomacy' on NK has got more out of China and the UN than ever before, and has China concerned that they are lookng at ways to fix Kim.

So you are wrong on NK. Trump looks crass, unsophisticated - but it is effective.


As a leader I would prefer a Trump type who stated it how it is than of Obama cunt who betrayed every bit of the Bill of Rights and Consitution.

Having said that, it should also be noted that Trump is a traitor and flipped to Deep State, like all the others.

Either that or we elected Caligula.

Lol, the risk is that the rest of the planet dumps the US $ and America loses the vig.

US foreign policy for the last 4 decades is akin to leaving a fish on someone's doorstep.

“US foreign policy for the last 4 decades is akin to leaving a fish on someone's doorstep.”

Maybe it’s more like leaving a burning bag of shit on the doorstep, ringing the doorbell and then running away.

The victim tries to stomp out the fire and then everything is a real mess.

It's kind of like what Nuland and the US has done to Ukraine.

Sounds about right.

I found the 'turning the UN into a gangsters near where money and bloodshed is the order of the day' statement amusing. They are just now figuring this out? Has there been a time in history when that wasn't the case? Maybe, just maybe, we will get a real America first president and kick those parasites out of this country.

Thinking that losing every last ounce of respect from the Russians and Chinese is effective...

The absolute state of political opinion these days. Did you not hear what Putin said? He sees Trump as a spoiled child. And he's not wrong. There are no words for it, it is beyond pathetic.

Poonutz aren't enjoying the epic bantz for some reason.

You have to admit, the Norks know how to shitpost IRL. Both sides are pacing each other now, which shows mutual understanding. Understanding is not a precondition of conflict. Just the opposite, actually.

This will end well. Neither poonutz nor peanutz will be able to understand, nor be able to accept when it does.

For those interested in a little levity regarding the situation, this is a parody news feed pretending to be the nork government. It's fucking hilarious.

Trump and Kim are working on getting a nuclear war started

that could begin by killing tens of millions of people

and end by killing billions

I wish Trump would STFU

he shows he is weak with his endless rants

North Korea knows we can destroy them, that's sufficient

Thom Paine's picture

You are I think wrong, and under estimate the desires of Deep State.

The US wont do anything - but will not mind too much if NK does something first which justifies the US attacking  NK.

The US will throw its hands in the air as SK gets trashed and say - NK attacked first, we had to respond, tough luck guys.

Normalcy Bias's picture

...but will not mind too much if NK does something first which justifies the US attacking NK.

Exactly, which is why this is the perfect setup for another 9/11 to be blamed on the North Koreans.

The end result would be Martial Law in the US, and a massive, even possible, World War.

Who says the Deep State doesn't like Trump?

Oh regional Indian's picture

The US has never entered a war it either planned to lose (see Kissinger, troops, animals/fodder etc.) or already had won by backdoor machinations save the required fireworks, MIC pork feed and aforementioned sacrifice of citizen fodder...

Normalcy Bias's picture

You obviously don't understand the modern objective.

The objective is no longer to win, the objective is Perpetual War.

Oh regional Indian's picture

I do and that's true.... because war is the new piece!

general ambivalent's picture

I wouldn't berate other people for not understanding. It is not a simple matter, and you are wrong yourself.

Perpetual war is a condition, not the objective. It only appears to be an objective to those who believe in the various exploitative myths necessary for modern control. The change occurs because of the conditions of perpetual peace, which replaces military and religious wars with economic warfare (this can easily become a hot war at any moment); the democratic problem of returning to war after a declaration of peace effectively forces a continuation, as nationalist populations romanticize each position and thus force a long peace or severe wars; the globalist problem of redefining the borders of nations and undermining the sovereignty of local populations; War Measures as a subversion of individual rights and local sovereignty/economic power; the new strategies that come with mobilised warfare create another bipolarity in the area of attack or defense, generally a nation must continue along its current path; and the tactical problems caused by highly mobile warfare introduce an economy of permanent reinforcement.

In terms of economic and cultural assault they have been winning on all fronts, while taking foreign territory has had mixed results. The problem here, however, is a technological and theoretical problem of mobility - a problem much the same as the stalemate in World War I. Highly mobile warfare meets its match in the highly defensive constructs of Russia, North Korea, or any nation with nuclear capability. This could change if technology advances to the next stage of mobility, or if these nations can be forced from their defensive positions into mobile tactics. Certainly this is what the US has been attempting by opening up multiple fronts around Russia, forcing it into mobility and cascading fronts which defensive units are incapable of navigating for long periods of time.

And obviously the use of proxy forces are a way of getting around the democratic peace problem (wealthy nations believing in peace do not want to lose people to violence, especially in great numbers). This is in no way at the level of force needed for a world war - although the migrant crisis, if it is indeed forced, may be a catalyst for increasingly totalitarian governance and a schism reintroducing popular belief in sacrifice. This is already happening and a feeling of extreme violence is taking over positions on the Left and Right.

Perpetual warfare is really just preparation for the final assault. This could be a long act of waiting for the enemy to make a mistake, opening up a weakness on their line which can then be exploited to take the whole border down.

At least we won't have to worry about an influx of SK refugees into the US.  There won't be any.

If this thing kicks off and Russia and China join in, we're all done.

in_xanadu_did_kubla_khan's picture

I'm very sure whatever happens (if anything) with NK, it will be a false flag event. The unknown from it all is Russia and China and their reaction. I can't imagine either willing to go to (nuclear) war over NK with the US.

I know it's been said here many times before (so this really doesn't apply to ZH'ers but rather the general public), but people really need to get their heads out of their asses and consider who the real threat here is.

Hint: not the HERMIT state

Don't get me wrong, NK is a shitty place for the people living there, but it's much like the ME. It should be up to those people to remove what they don't like if they don't like it.

I wonder if there is any African country that is better to live in than South Korea.

For all its faults, it is probably a much better place for a regular person that does not try to unddermine the current system than anything in Africa.

I bet that anyone can walk in any neighborhood at anytime of the night without worrying about being robed, raped or killed.

In that aspect it is better than most big cities in the US, UK or now the EU.


I would not want to live there, but not my businesses how some nation on another continental conducts its internal affairs.

If SK does get trashed, and with it Samsung, LG, Hyundai and Kia, don't you think that their competitors in the electronics, automotive and appliance industry in Japan and US will rejoice?

Hell, they and (((NY banksters))) might even dance from rooftops.  E.g. Have a Nagila (Let's rejoice) style


(BTW, is NK still printing top notch $100 bills, that are even moar fake than the fiat Notes from the Fed? I know that this is pissing off these same *JY Banksters*)

the biggest problem with eng's analysis is nk's intense hatred of the usa. kim is more like a convenient fool for both the usa and china over the battle for east asia. both sides want to show japan and korea who is the better ally in the region. besides, if kim was actually a problem for china and/or russia or if he were suspected of being an agent for the usa he would be found having an accident while testing a new chinese made nail gun.

"Engdahl says Kim Jong Un is false opposition."

if we presume this is true, Did anyone tell Trump?

FWIW: If Trumps goal was to patch up the US economy and start repairing "some" of the systemic problem, he sure seems to be procrastinating. I think for the most part, Most people who supported Trump was hoping he would wind down all the wars, not esculate and start new wars. NK is just another new war, while dumping more resources into the Middle east conflicts (Syria, Afghan., etc) as well as Chest Thumping over Iran.
When does it end?

At this point I see little differences between Trump and Hillary. I think had Hitlery won she would have done pretty much the same thing, except perhaps the excessive tweeting.

Trump's totall bullshit remarks on North Korea are the most damaging remarks to his reputation yet. At least as damaging as the "grab her by the pussy" thing. Either Trump is mentally insane and will kill millions of South Koreans on purpose, or he is telling a bold faced lie that he will kill millions of North Koreans. Which is it? Is Trump recklessly disgregarding millions of South Koreans lives on purpose, or recklessly playing God with North Koreans lives? But to make it worse, before Trump got his ring of power, he insisted the military welfare to South Korea and Japan should come to and end. Anyone following politics would have to say his North Korean remark that Fat Man will be gone soon is a *LIE* either one way or the other.

And I will add that criminal Kim will still be president of his country when criminal Trump will have ceased being president of his country.

The big difference between these 2 criminals is that Kim is clever while Trump is stupid.

I am sincerely sorry for those who voted Trump hoping to end the rule of the two-headed globalist-imperialist monster. They have elected a stupid heterodox swamp creature, but nonetheless a swamp creature. What a disgrace to have such a president.
