The North Korea situation is starting to heat up- the Hermit Kingdom has issued a warning that a plan to attack waters near Guam will be put into place by mid-August.
A statement released by the state-run news agency KCNA said the mid-August plan will involve a “historic enveloping fire at Guam.” After the plan is set in place, the government will then “keep closely watching the speech and behavior of the U.S.” and wait for orders from Kim Jong-Un.
A commander of the North Korean army told CNN:
“The U.S. President at [golf] links again let out a load of nonsense about ‘fire and fury,’ failing to grasp the ongoing grave situation.”
“It seems that he has not yet understood the statement. Sound dialogue is not possible with such a guy bereft of reason and only absolute force can work with him.
North Korea responds to Trump's "fire & fury" statement: The President fails "to grasp the on-going grave situation" https://t.co/hCtfjjbl7f

After Pyonyang announced that it had developed a miniaturized nuclear warhead, President Trump warned North Korea that he would unleash “fire and fury like the world has never seen” if the country continues to make threats against the US.
Secretary of Defense James Mattis clarified President Trump’s statement:
“The DPRK must choose to stop isolating itself and stand down its pursuit of nuclear weapons.”
“The DPRK should cease any consideration of actions that would lead to the end of its regime and the destruction of its people.”
These people are messed up. The North Korean regime brutalizes its own people and threatens world peace every day. No matter what crazy thing they say next, we can feel safe knowing we now have a president who is ready to stand up to them.
