Trump's Ominous Tweet: "China's Help With North Korea Has Not Worked Out. At Least It Tried"

In what appears to be a rather ominous tweet posted moments ago by Donald Trump, the President said that "while I greatly appreciate the efforts of President Xi & China to help with North Korea, it has not worked out. At least I know China tried!"

Trump's troubling statement follows an earlier tweet about North Korea, in which he said that "The U.S. once again condemns the brutality of the North Korean regime as we mourn its latest victim."

So is this Trump's implicit warning that he is about to launch an attack on North Korea, following a failed intervention by China, in retaliation for the death of Otto Warmbier?  If so, it may be problematic since as we showed several days ago, both US carriers Ronald Reagan and Carl Vinson appeared to have left the Korean peninsula as of last week, suggesting that any military action will require their return first.

Alternatively, without reading too much between the lines, Trump's tweet could simply be a statement of disapproval regarding China's failed attempt to "normalize" the North Korean situation.

In any case, if Trump is about to launch an attack on North Korea, that much discussed, record low VIX regime may finally be about to break, just remember...

Now that would be a great twist, if Trump asks congress for a declaration of War, he would set back the Globalist agenda years with just the request. Paul Ryan would have a heart attack. Any one got the stones to post a White House Petition requesting just that very thing?

A video of (((Warmbier))) at his trial. What a bravura performance. The cruel heartless Norks were totally unmoved - shame on them.

But seriously - he was trying to gain membership of the closed "Society Z" at the University of Virginia. The society members said he would be allowed to join if he stole a North Korean propaganda poster and brought it home.

More video of Warmbier's story here, including footage with audio of his court plea for clemency. Difficult to tell if he is genuinely losing it, or genuinely overacting, as the surrounding stone faced Norks distort all emotional reference points. Is this the planned viewer perception takeaway?http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4619372/Otto-Warmbier-dies-days…

Your comments not OT. This is all about China. The moment Moon suspends THAAD and looks like attempting reconciliation with NK, Trump steps in saying "China tried but didn't work". The US does NOT want peace on the Korean peninsula. As soon as peace looks like having a chance the US must intervene (just as in Syria, BTW) to queer the pitch. The US must retain an excuse to have troops and more particularly air, sea and electronic assets on & around the peninsula. Why? Look at a map - within a stones throw of Beijing, Qingdao, Shanghai. Its equivalent to China having military assets on Long Island. Trump is absolutely in the game, just like Obama was, or is a complete muppet - it doesn't matter which. No change in Washington. Hell, look at the Gulf. US sells arms to GCC who pass them on to terrorists, then ask for more. US sells $100B in arms to the Al Sauds (+ promised investment), and then encourages division within the GCC, then sells F15s to Qatar - supplying both sides. What is a win for the US? Financial domination and military hardware sales. Look at NATO - Trump wants NATO to spend more on military hardware. Where will that come from? Boeing, Raytheon, & all the others. MAGA, via the two exports the US excels at (guns and $$). And if a few Arabs or Brits or Frenchmen (or Americans) get killed along the way, c'est la vie. TPTB are completely insulated from those losses.

Mate, You are showing signs of TURD SYNDROME. Trump Unacceptance Resistance Disorder. Your head is full of TURD Get help immediately. If you cannot afford a doctor or go to the one of your choice (which under Obama care is not likely) then a good home remedy is to stick head in toilet and flush. Do not stop until all TURD is removed!

      Okay..Let's try it this way... We do not need an Attack Carrier Strike Group as we have Air Force Bases in both Japan and South Korea that are Nuclear Ready  and are well within range.. Are you so fucking limited that you strain at the Gnat of the bullshit story about Bin Laden that you swallow the fucking Camel that the damned Carrier Strike Groups are somehow necessary to strike at the heart of North Korea? They are TARGETS and need to be out of range of the Hypersonic Missiles that will Deep Six them.
