IT’S ON! US, allies prepared to use ‘overwhelming force’ in North Korea, general says


North Korea is pushing the limits of diplomacy and America won’t stand for it.

In light of the recent ballistic missile testing North Korea conducted and boasted about their ability to reach the US something has to be done. Therefore the US, Japan, and South Korea did some testing of our own.

Via Fox News:

North Korea conducted test launches of ICBMs on July 3 and July 28, and has claimed that its weapons can now reach the U.S. mainland.

The U.S. and its allies are prepared to use “rapid, lethal and overwhelming force,” if necessary, against North Korea, the commander of the U.S. Pacific Air Forces warned Saturday night.

The statement from Gen. Terrence J. O’Shaughnessy, U.S. Pacific Air Forces commander, came after the militaries of the U.S., South Korea and Japan spent 10 hours conducting bomber-jet drills over the Korean Peninsula.

The training mission was a response to North Korea’s recent ballistic missile launches and nuclear program, and part of the U.S. regular commitment to defending its allies in the Asia-Pacific region, the general’s statement said.

Diplomacy remains the lead,” he said. “However, we have a responsibility to our allies and our nation to showcase our unwavering commitment while planning for the worst-case scenario.

“If called upon,” he added, “we are ready to respond with rapid, lethal and overwhelming force at a time and place of our choosing.”

The world is a playground and Kim Jong Un is just another bully with empty threats.

    Personally I have seen a lot of comments, especially from the USA advocating taking a firm hand against North Korea.
    Has anyone thought that maybe Kim Jong Un is NOT as mad as you all think? Trump asked China to impose sanctions against North Korea but not only has China neglected to do so BUT China has increased trade with North Korea and the alarm bells still dont ring!
    I was talking to a very staunch Communist Chinese girl and she admitted “We like North Korea, North Korea is our BEST friend”
    I wonder if someone else is behind North Korea? I wonder if Kim is just the puppet – just like Western World politicians are the puppets of the Bankers, Rothschilds and company. I wonder if China is behind North Korea, pushing them and ready to support them or use any force against them as an act of agression AND an excuse to attack the USA.
    I have read that the USA should also stop Chinese Trade to the USA but somehow I think even that could go amiss because China may have other plans and doesnt really care if the USA impose sanctions on them as well.
    All may not be as it seems.
