Democrats and President Trump haters are bombarding the news with commentary about how the White House is purposefully marching the U.S. into war with North Korea. They act as if it was America that tested WMDs and promised a nuclear attack without mercy first. Trump, love or detest the man, has not gone looking for a fight, he is only ready to act if a fight must be.
America is “locked and loaded,” according to the Commander in Chief. Yahoo News reports that on Twitter, the president said, “Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully, Kim Jong Un will find another path!” The evil leader of North Korea is quickly approaching his self-imposed deadline of a completed attack on Guam by mid-August.
Military solutions are now fully in place,locked and loaded,should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!

Trump is all but begging the North Koreans to alter course so that war need NOT happen while at the same time not appearing weak or at all intimidated.
This is difficult considering that N.K. leader Kim Jong-un boasted of “a plan to fire four missiles in the direction of the U.S. territory of Guam.” Is America’s leader supposed to allow our service men and women to be threatened with nuclear annihilation without standing ready to defend them?
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, despite his nickname being “Mad Dog,” is actually not charging headfirst into war, either. He wants the U.S. to “get this under control” and has said that talks were “diplomatically led.”
There is said to even be some good news (not that the MSM will ever praise a Trump success) in that these efforts are “gaining traction.”
The U.S. is said to be “gaining diplomatic results,” too.
More telling of how Trump and his administration are aiming for peace while carrying a big stick can be seen in how the “Mad Dog” aims to “stay right there right now” in terms of hoping for a diplomatic outcome.
He says a war-like scenario would be “catastrophic.” Mattis added that “we are ready” if a fight must happen, but the American war machine is certainly not out looking for a fight under this president.
“Let’s see what he does with Guam,” suggested Donald Trump. “If he does something in Guam, it will be an event the likes of which nobody’s seen before — what will happen in North Korea.”
Always quick to smear the U.S. leader as warmongering, a reporter challenged that this was a dare to North Korea and their chubby ruler. Trump was quick to clarify saying, “It’s not a dare. It’s a statement. It has nothing to do with a dare.”
He also said, “That’s a statement. He’s not going to go around threatening Guam, and he’s not going to threaten the United States, and he’s not going to threaten Japan, and he’s not going to threaten South Korea.”
America may be the biggest man in the room, so to speak, but sooner or later, even a munchkin with a gun can get his attention. This is a perfect analogy for the U.S. and North Korea and Trump is trying to warn the pip squeak to stop.
