President Trump has issued a statement that says “all options are on the table.” According to Zerohedge, Gen. Kelly oversaw a meditation on Donald Trump’s official response to the North Korean missile that was shot over Japan.
White House issued an official statement that says that “all options are on the table.”
“The world has received North Korea’s latest message loud and clear: this regime has signaled contempt for its neighbors, for all members of the United Nations, and for minimum standards of acceptable international behavior.”
Threatening and destabilizing actions only increase the North Korean regime’s isolation in the region and among all nations of the world. All options are on the table.
While that may be, judging by North Korea’s repeated provocations, at least Kim is convinced that Trump really has no options. Indeed, as Bill Blain commented earlier, “What will Donald do? After last week’s “Fire and Fury” rant, the N Koreans are expecting him to fulminate, look stupid, make some further angry comments – in short more bluster. They will continue to goad him into doing something “angry”… at which point America gets the blame, and China can step in as peacemaker.”
North Korea and China appeared to have set a trap for the President. Trump is listening to good people like General Kelly and McMaster.
