Since the inauguration of Trump there has been an uptick in the “fighting” words toward a couple of countries that we only mentioned in passing before that….China and North Korea.
But it is North Korea that has gotten more attention in the media and the bobble-heads……their nuke program, missile tests, and other assorted “problems”….
But what does all this attention mean?
According to Trump…TROUBLE!
U.S. President Donald Trump said Monday he will deal with North Korea “very strongly,” calling the communist regime a “big, big problem” after Pyongyang carried out the latest ballistic missile launch.
“Obviously North Korea is a big, big problem and we will deal with that very strongly,” Trump said during a joint news conference at the White House with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in response to a question about the most important national security matters facing him.
Below is an alternate look at the situation with North Korea…not a typical MSM blow back……
Less than a month into the Trump presidency, North Korea is looming as a major flashpoint after the Pyongyang regime test fired a new intermediate-range ballistic missile on Sunday. The test takes place amid mounting tensions between the US and China, North Korea’s ally, over trade, monetary policy, Taiwan and territorial disputes in the South China and East China seas.
The launch drew immediate condemnation by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who was visiting with Trump at the president’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. At a joint press conference Sunday night, Abe called the missile test “absolutely intolerable.” Trump declared that the US was “behind Japan, its great ally, 100 percent.” The US, Japan and South Korea have called an emergency session of the UN Security Council to discuss North Korea.
I have written about NK whenever I felt there was something brewing that needs attention….recently there was a news story that NK could see a regime change and soon….
Was this story just propaganda or is the story just wishful thinking?
My point is that NK is getting more and more press….and to what end? Is this something that we Americans should be concerned with or is it just a diversion from some other situation?
What say you?
