The Leftists are outraged at President Trump’s response to the threat of a North Korean strike on Guam. Whose side are they on?
They’re saying that President Trump is ‘bombastic’ and ‘inflammatory’ against the threat of A NUCLEAR STRIKE.
In an opinion piece in the Daily Mail, Piers Morgan brings some perspective to the escalating situation with North Korean threats against the U.S.
He talks about a ‘joke’ that is going viral online:
The most popular variety of ‘joke’ currently sweeping social media goes something like this: ‘The world is facing imminent nuclear extinction because of a deranged, deluded, stupid dictator. Oh, and Kim Jong Un’s a worry too.’
Would these new comedians feel the same way if they (or their loved ones) lived in Guam?
I’m thinking no.
The ‘humor’ and bizarre apoplexy at President Trump’s comments by Leftists is outrageous considering the very real threat of a nuclear war being issued by a legitimate madman.
It’s a specific threat against a U.S. territory that has thousands of people living there, including thousands of our troops.
Let’s be very clear: North Korea, after decades of increasingly bellicose threats against the US, has now got miniaturized nuclear warheads.
Possibly as many as 60.
Further, it has made a specific threat to attack Guam, a small US territory in the western Pacific ocean that holds a US military outpost.
There are 6,000 American troops currently based there, along with 162,000 civilians.
Unlike the Leftists, North Korea doesn’t appear to be joking.
In a statement, North Korea says it is ‘seriously examining the plan for an enveloping strike at Guam through simultaneous fire of four Hwasong-12 intermediate-range strategic ballistic missiles in order to interdict the enemy forces on major military bases on Guam and to signal a crucial warning to the US.’
The plan, the statement added, is to fly the missiles over Japan and land them in the waters 18-25 miles from Guam.
But the Hwasong-12 missile has been tested only once and has a very unpredictable performance and unreliable accuracy.
It could end disastrously — actually hit Guam, Japan, or just do this:
We just don’t know.
But remember, this has been years in the making.
Here’s the thing… this wasn’t supposed to where we are today.
Bill had said that the North Korean regime would be monitored to make sure they’d keep their commitments.
Aaaaand look where we are now.
How’d that work out for us?
Could it just be more grandstanding? Sure.
Maybe if it is grandstanding, having a President tell ‘Li’l Kim’ what exactly would go down if he ever dared to attempt a strike is the right action.
Yet the reaction to Trump’s emphatic statement of intent to defend America, and the world, against any actual attack from North Korea has been extraordinarily vitriolic and extraordinarily dumb.
Such is the blind visceral hatred towards the US president from Trump-hating liberals, they cannot apparently bring themselves to see any distinction between him and Jong Un.
Kim Jong-Un has had his political opponents murdered — including his own half-brother.
They said it was due to ‘botulism’, though American doctors didn’t see symptoms that supported that claim.
Jong Un, like his father before him, is a ruthless megalomaniac tyrant who terrorises his people through torture, executions and systematic abuse.
The 33-year-old has murdered scores of political enemies, including his own half brother who was poisoned by a VX nerve agent in a Malaysia airport earlier this year.
Jong Un is also reported to have blown up an uncle, Jang Song Thaek, with an anti-aircraft cannon.
Yep, that seems rational, right?
Yet some on the Left continue to want to appease Kim Jong-Un and are calling out President Trump.
That’s allegedly a rational reaction from a post-menopausal woman that is supposed to be taken seriously.
Trump, for all his faults, is not a murderous dictator.
To suggest he is somehow on the same level of sickening totalitarian depravity as someone like Jong Un is not just untrue – it is pathetic.
Those who persist in making this absurd analogy need to take a long, hard look at themselves and wonder whose national interest they are serving right now – America’s, or North Korea’s?
