Over the past few days, Mike Pence has made it apparent he has precisely zero patience when it comes to North Korea. Something he recently illustrated with the glare felt ’round the world (see BADASS: Mike Pence Fearlessly Stares Down North Korean Military…). He reiterated that sentiment in a shared statement alongside South Korea’s president. Watch below…
Speaking alongside South Korea’s acting president Hwang Kyo-ahn in Seoul, South Korea, Vice President Mike Pence warned North Korea…
“The United States’ commitment to South Korea is ironclad and immutable. Just in the past two weeks, the world witnessed the strength and resolve of our new President in actions taken in Syria and Afghanistan. North Korea would do well not to test his resolve, or the strength of the armed forces of the United States in this region. We will defeat any attack, and we will meet any uses of conventional or nuclear weapons with an overwhelming and effective response.”
Translation: Don’t f*ck with us, it’s not Obama’s military anymore. Thankfully. For all of Donald’s faults, a wimpishly inactive military strategy isn’t one of them. He made that clear earlier this month when he gave ISIS a taste of their own boomage (see SAY HELLO TO OUR LITTLE FRIEND: Watch Mother of All Bombs Blast ISIS!).
North Korea has been weirding it up in their own country quite a bit (read Kim Jong-un Just Banned Sarcasm in North Korea. No, Seriously…). But be warned North Korea: meddle with America and our ally South Korean, and be crushed under American boots. Hoorah.
By the way, let’s take a moment to appreciate how committed Mike Pence is to keeping the USA and her allies safe. He pays no lip service here but speaks from the heart. And his heart says “screw off, communists.” I dig it.
But seriously, girls, find yourself a man who talks about you the way Mike Pence talks about South Korea. The dude cares. It’s a breath of fresh air after an almost-decade of the Obama administration’s limp wristed pansiness.
