Despite threats of “fire and fury” from President Trump, this nation is maneuvering to strike our navy.
American spy satellites have observed North Korean forces loading two anti-ship cruise missiles onto a patrol boat docked on the rogue nation’s east coast just two days ago. Fox News reports that the communist regime was caught equipping a Wonsan patrol boat with two Stormpetrel anti-ship missiles.
North Korea was caught increasing their defensive capabilities as tensions continue to escalate in the Korean peninsula. The North Korean regime has been pushing ahead with their ballistic missile testing, despite widespread condemnation from the international community.
American officials assume that the missile-guided patrol ship has been deployed in response to increased American naval presence in nearby waters, however, the patrol ship also offers North Korea protection to continue their missile tests.
Trump has made his willingness to combat North Korea abundantly clear, however, the Commander-in-Chief says he would prefer a diplomatic resolution. “My first order as President was to renovate and modernize our nuclear arsenal. It is now far stronger and more powerful than ever before,” Trump tweeted this morning. “Hopefully we will never have to use this power, but there will never be a time that we are not the most powerful nation in the world!”
US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is also hoping for an amicable solution to the problem of North Korea. “The best signal that North Korea could give us that they’re prepared to talk would be to stop these missile launches,” Tillerson explained.
In a recent vote, the United Nations Security Council unanimously agreed to impose a new round of sanctions on the despotic regime in an attempt to stop their missile tests.
However, the deployment of the Stormpetrel missiles indicates that North Korea has no intentions of halting their missile testing. Instead, the recent movements from the rogue nation reveal their plan to engage in nuclear war.
According to Reuters, a North Korean spokesman said that Kim Jong-un’s regime is “carefully examining” a plan to launch an attack against the American territory of Guam. Guam is strategically located in the Pacific ocean and is home to an American military base, a submarine squadron, and over 160,000 residences.
However, in a scheduled trip to Guam, Tillerson attempted to quell fears. He told reporters that the North Korean threats were mere bluster, and that “Americans should sleep well at night.” Guam Governor Eddie Calvo agreed with Tillerson, and declared that the island was prepared for anything North Korea could throw at them.
Governor Calvo explained that he has been in talks with the White House, and the threat level has not been increased. The small island of Guam is protected by the recently deployed Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile defense system in South Korea.
In response to the threats, Trump issued a harsh warning against the communist dictator. “North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”
