Well, that didn’t take long.
Following Trump’s absurd “fire and fury” promise, North Korea has responded and here is that response in all its hyperbolic glory:
The preemptive attack threatened by the U.S. will be foiled by the Korean style preemptive attack which will be mounted earlier.
The provocative ‘preventive war’ the U.S. has devised and plans to execute will be countered with a just all-out war of wiping out all the strongholds of the enemies including the U.S. mainland.
The nuclear war hysteria of the U.S. authorities including Trump has reached an extremely reckless and rash phase.
And see, Trump should have known better.
Anyone who knows anything about the DPRK knows that you can’t out-hyperbole Pyongyang. They are the undisputed heavyweight champion of absurd press releases.
But it gets worse.
In response to Trump, North Korea has now threatened to bomb Guam.
Here’s the quote:
- KPA Strategic Force is now carefully examining the operational plan for making an enveloping fire at the areas around Guam with medium-to-long- range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong-12 in order to contain the U.S. major military bases on Guam.
And here’s the statement:
The only way to prevent a further escalation is to pray that Trump doesn’t know what Guam is…
Trump might react calmly to this Guam threat if he doesn't know Guam is part of the United States.
