BREAKING Trump: “Fire and Fury” may not be tough enough
President Trump sparked more political fire and furry Thursday in a statement to the press saying “Frankly, the people who were questioning that statement, was it too tough? Maybe it wasn’t tough enough”, to reporters outside of his New Jersey Golf Club. Trump stated that the situation with North Korea remained without a response and vowed to continue his “America First” strategy.
Trump indicated that he had the situation under control and had the backing and support of the military. He further threatened North Korea if they chose to attack America or American interest. “The people of this country should be very comfortable, and I will tell you this: If North Korea does anything in terms of even thinking about attack of anybody that we love or we represent or our allies or us, they can be very, very nervous. “
The situation in question is the speculation that North Korea has miniaturized a nuclear bomb, following world-wide attention in recent, successful, ballistic missile testing. Trump would not comment on a preemptive or retaliatory strike. The speculation has been verified by the CIA and other agencies. The strong language concerning military action was echoed by South Korea and Japan who both have signaled they would join the US in a strong response for any attack against Guam.
The recent fury and fire in the press came after North Korea announce a detailed plan of a missile strike targeting Guam. Pyongyang detailed the four missiles that would be used and how quickly they could reach Guam. He vowed to have a complete plan by the middle of August and would give the final approval.
North Korea’s Pyongyang signaled he was preparing an attack against Guam and that led to the explosive and controversial statement made by Trump on Wednesday. Trump’s response to Pyongyang was “He was been very threatening beyond a normal state, and as I said they will be met with fire, fury, and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before”.
Guam is situated in the Pacific Ocean within striking distance of North Korea and even closer to Japan. Guam is a US Territory and is the home of key U.S. military installations with over 160,000 US citizens, mostly civilians. Guam is considered a military stronghold of the Western Pacific and a key target for North Korean aggressions. Guam and other territories elect delegates to the House of Representatives that have no vote on legislation thereby rendering US citizens of such territories subject to no representation.
