Trump vows “fire and fury” if North Korea regime continues threatening to defend itself

Source: Washington Post

“President Trump on Tuesday issued a stern warning to North Korea, saying that if its threats to the United States continue, the outcast nation will be ‘met with the fire and the fury like the world has never seen.’ Trump comments came as North Korea spurned a new round of sanctions approved by the United Nations Security Council and pledged to continue to press forward with development of nuclear weapons that could reach the U.S. mainland. … The Washington Post on Tuesday reported that North Korea has successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles, crossing a key threshold on the path to becoming a full-fledged nuclear power, according to a confidential assessment by U.S. intelligence officials. … North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho told diplomats that his country will never negotiate away what he called a rational ‘strategic option’ against the threat of attack from the United States.” [editor’s note: In my opinion, it would be a mistake to believe the claims of EITHER regimes concerning the North’s nuclear capabilities – TLK] (08/08/17)
