Unlike the John McCains of the world, I like President Trump’s tough talk on North Korea. I loved when he doubled down and said his “fire and fury” remarks didn’t go far enough. He added, “if he does anything with respect to Guam or any place else that’s an American territory or an American ally, he will truly regret it, and he will regret it fast.”
I also loved Defense Secretary Mattis’ bold response.
“The DPRK must choose to stop isolating itself and stand down its pursuit of nuclear weapons,” Mattis said in a statement.”The DPRK should cease any consideration of actions that would lead to the end of its regime and the destruction of its people.”
Meanwhile, irrational leftists are apologizing to Kim Jong-un.

That’s where we are. The United States continues to toss warnings North Korea’s way, and leftists continue to apologize for Trump’s behavior.
North Korea has responded to President Trump’s recent tough talk and said we “had better talk and act properly” if we want to avoid utter annihilation.
“If the Trump administration does not want the American empire to meet its tragic doom in its tenure, they had better talk and act properly,” North Korea said in a statement via state-run media.
“The U.S. has done all sorts of wrongs to the DPRK, styling itself the ‘only superpower’ in the eyes of the world,” the statement continues. “But now it finds itself in an ever worsening dilemma, being thrown into the grip of extreme security unrest by the DPRK. This is tragicomedy of its own making.”
North Korea is telling us to tone down the rhetoric. North Korea is calling this a tragicomedy. I know many of the North Korean people actually believe that, because they’re completely brainwashed, but leadership has to know none of that is true. They have to know we could squish them like a bug, right?
North Korea went on to say that its army is now on “standby” to launch an attack into the US mainland.
I’m not sure what we should do next, but I did hear an interesting long-term idea on the news this morning that I think would be effective. Basically, we should blast them with an information campaign. We need to reach the heart of the North Korean people. If enough of the nation woke up and realized North Korea was a farce, it could initiate an internal uprising. (However, Kim Jong-un is probably prepared for that. Those prison camps aren’t just for looks.)
I have no idea what will happen next. But North Korean officials have to know that any military action on their part would result in the complete destruction of their regime. They have to.
