Tough Talk Works! North Korea Backs Down from Guam Threat
All of that tough talk on North Korea which sent the media into spiraling fits of panic (see HELL YES: General Mattis Releases Chilling Statement for North Korea. And it’s AWESOME! and Top 5 Leftist Braindead Reactions to North Korean Nuke Situation)? The same "tough talk" that would eventually lead unstable Little Kim to poke his jam hands all over the nuke buttons, therefore wiping Guam off of Planet Earth? Well turns out we're not quite into World War Three. Because that same "tough talk" has put Little Kim back into his high chair. At the kid's table.
Guam is fine. The tough talk worked. North Korea backed down:
North Korea is backing off a threat to fire missiles at the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam, according to a new report.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said he had decided not to launch an attack, but warned he could change his mind.
He could "change his mind"? OH NOES. You know what else could happen? Trump could "change his mind." The United States could "change how we target North Korea with our thousands of nukes." So choose wisely, Lil' Kim Jong. You may have miniaturized nukes. But we have a crap ton more. In all shapes, sizes, and deadliness.
“If the Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous reckless actions on the Korean Peninsula and in its vicinity, testing the restraint of the DPRK [North Korea], the [North] will make an important decision as it already declared,” Kim said according to the country’s state media, as reported by The Wall Street Journal.
The statement could help reduce tensions in the region.
“It could escalate into war very quickly,” Mattis said. “…Yes, that’s called war, if they shoot at us.”
Love that man. If North Korea shoots at us, it's called a war. That little educational tidbit was provided for the leftist media with noggins full of packing peanuts. For now, the war of the words has proven that "speaking up while carrying a nuclear arsenal outmatching the little communist country and their even smaller communist leader" totes works. And not that I'm encouraging global thermal nuclear war or anything, but if a missile or two needs to be fired in retaliation, I suggest we name those missiles "Fire" and "Fury."
So what have we learned, other than Little Kim isn't as puffed up with confidence as he pretends? Having a swinging set of brass testicles works. It's almost as if a response to threats with a stronger threat (backed up with the knowledge the USA has lots and lots of nukes) is the only thing tyrants like Kim Jong Un understand.
Oh and that we have more nuclear weapons. And we're, so far, the only country which has used them in an actual war.
