North Korea’s Kim Jong Un is developing nuclear weapons in the hopes that the threat of nuclear war will allow his tyrannical regime to remain in power.
But those hopes were badly misplaced.
One top Trump official said seven words about “Mad Dog” Mattis that now spell certain doom for the ruthless dictator.
North Korea escalated the crisis by conducting their sixth nuclear test – detonating what experts believe to be a hydrogen bomb – and launching a second intercontinental ballistic missile test over Japan.
The United States continues to warn Pyongyang that their actions are unacceptable and that they face severe consequences should they cross the line and threaten the United States or her allies.
But the North Korean government appears to believe the Trump administration is just like past administrations, where threatening talk is just that – talk.
They are badly miscalculating.
U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley declared in an interview that North Korea must stop their behavior and then uttered just seven words that mean the end of Kim Jong Un.
She said in regards to a military option against North Korea “…General Mattis will take care of it.”
Haley also stated that a military conflict would mean North Korea would be destroyed.
“US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said President Donald Trump’s “fire and fury” comment last month about North Korea’s nuclear program was not an empty threat.
In an interview that aired Sunday with CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union,” Haley emphasized that Defense Secretary James Mattis has an array of options to destroy the nation of some 25 million people.
If the US exhausts diplomatic options on North Korea, the US military would “take care of it,” Haley said,
“We wanted to be responsible and go through all diplomatic means to get their attention first,” Haley said. “If that doesn’t work, General Mattis will take care of it.”
Haley warned a war would mean the destruction of North Korea.
“If North Korea keeps on with this reckless behavior, if the United States has to defend itself or defend its allies in any way, North Korea will be destroyed,” Haley said. “And we all know that, and none of us want that.”
This is the second time a Trump administration official has warned North Korea they will be destroyed.
After a North Korean missile test, Secretary of Defense “Mad Dog” Mattis stated North Korea should stop it’s provocations before it was destroyed.
Business Insider reports:
“North Korea “should cease any consideration of actions that will lead to the end of the regime and destruction of its people,” Mattis said in a statement.”
North Korea – as well as many pundits – believes the Trump administration is bluffing about a military option.
They claim that because North Korea has thousands of artillery pieces poised to annihilate Seoul and their nuclear weapons can incinerate Tokyo, there is no chance the United States will engage in a second Korean war.
But “Mad Dog” Mattis has options at his disposal.
Do you think this will end in war?
