Trump’s national security advisers give warning, hope to avoid ‘total annihilation’ of North Korea


Recommended Posts


The Trump administration was weighing all options Sunday night, including a retaliatory military strike, in response to North Korea’s test of a powerful hydrogen bomb that Pyongyang claimed could be mounted on an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching the U.S. mainland.

The massive underground explosion early Sunday in a bunker south of North Korea’s border with China was Pyongyang’s sixth and by far most powerful nuclear detonation — so powerful that it registered as an earthquake.

Nerves were on edge around the world and in Washington, where President Trump called the test “very hostile and dangerous to the United States.”
A month after Mr. Trump made international headlines by claiming he would rain “fire and fury like the world has never seen” on North Korea if it continued with such provocations, the president’s response Sunday was notably more tempered — although he made it clear that his administration was seriously considering military retaliation.:snip:

Good morning kids. Honestly, the last thing I expected on a Labor Day Weekend was not only just lots of news, but the threat of a potential nuclear war. The NorKs detonation of what they claim to be a hydrogen bomb is bad enough, but they've allegedly miniaturized it to warhead size. The President and the Secretary of Defense have promised a massive retaliatory strike if either we or are allies are threatened. Crucially, the Chi-Coms have not parsed words and have openly condemned their puppet state for this provocation/escalation of the crisis. Back to our response, I cannot see how this latest incident is not the threat that we have promised to retaliate against. There are those that claim that somehow this is all a ruse, that their technology isn't that sophisticated and that they'd be crazy to attack us. Newsflash: they are. And as to the latter points, in the late 1930s, our view of the Japanese were that they were short, bucktoothed, near-sighted and completely inferior to us in every way. And then came Pearl Harbor and four bloody years of savage warfare. We dismiss North Korea at our peril.       :snip:   http://ace.mu.nu/archives/371403.php
