Tensions are continuing to boil over between the United States and North Korea. Communist Dictator Kim Jong Un is continuing to prod at President Donald Trump, who is completely unrestrained when it comes to actions again North Korea.
President Trump made clear that if Kim continues to make threats, that he would destroy them with fire and fury like the world has never seen. Watch Trump’s statement below.
North Korea responded by stating they are considering launching a missile strike against Guam, a U.S. Territory home to 163,000 people, as well as a U.S. Military base. North Korea is testing Trump, who needs no authorization whatsoever to launch a military strike against the Communist country.
Wouldn’t Trump need authorization? At least from Congress? Or the UN where Russia or China would easily veto military strikes? The answer is no. None of this would be needed whatsoever.
The reason is because of a simple technicality. We’re already at war with North Korea. This isn’t a recent development. On the contrary, we’ve been at war with North Korea for a while. For well over a half century. Since 1950, to be exact. The Korean War never actually ended.
The Korean Armistice Agreement created the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) between the North and South. This agreement however was not a treaty, but rather a ceasefire. As Commander in Chief, President Trump has the authority to re-engage military strikes in an existing war, especially after Kim Jong Un made very specific threats against Guam. North Korean missiles can reach Guam without having to breach the atmosphere, so the current challenge of missile re-entry does not apply. This might be at the protest of members of Congress and UN Ambassadors, but this is the result of leaving loose ends for decades.
Kim Jong Un has enjoyed making threats in the past while having our allies in his crosshairs. He has enjoyed accelerating his nuclear program at the actionless protest of prior administrations. But Trump made a very bold statement about dropping fire and fury on North Korea, only to be poked back by North Korea within three hours, naming a target.
If there’s one thing we know about President Trump, it’s that he has no desire to be a Paper Tiger. Pride and image are everything to this President, and he has nothing holding him back.
