North Korea: Trump Is Senile

North Korea on Thursday escalated its conflict with the United States, dismissing President Trump’s pledge to release “fire and fury” on the Pacific Rim nation if it follows through on a threat to attack Guam.

According to the Daily Mail, North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un said Trump is displaying signs of “senility” and is “extremely getting on the nerves” of military officials in Pyongyang. “Sound dialogue is not possible with such a guy bereft of reason who is going senile,” the autocratic ruler declared.

A high-ranking North Korean general, Kim Rak Gyom, doubled down on Kim’s statement. The officer, who heads his nation’s missile program, insisted that the plan is to bomb Guam by mid-August. North Korean officials have warned that they will unleash a “historic enveloping fire” around the U.S. territory. They reacted to Trump’s comment by calling it a “load of nonsense” and declared that “only absolute force” is effective in dealing with the American president.

A pro-Kim, anti-American rally drew thousands of North Korean citizens to Kim Il Sung Square in Pyongyang on Wednesday. People held picket signs denouncing the United States, and shook their fists menacingly. The country’s workers wore white shirts and waved patriotic flags. Members of the upper class, who donned black garments, cheered the passing parade. Speakers slammed the United Nations for invoking more sanctions against North Korea in retaliation for its military buildup. In recent months, Kim has ordered numerous tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles. He has vowed to create a nuclear weapon that could reach the U.S. mainland.

To prepare for a possible assault on Guam, the U.S. Air Force has deployed a pair of B-1B bombers to ally with South Korean and Japanese forces in a joint mission. In addition, the United States has PAC-3 Patriot missiles in Tokyo. If North Korea makes good on its threat to launch four Hwasong-12 missiles across Japan to Guam, among those at risk would be 7,000 members of the U.S. armed services at Andersen Air Force Base and Naval Base Guam. The Daily Mail noted that about 160,000 people live in the U.S. territory.

North Korea’s military will “wait for (Kim’s) order” to fire the missiles, according to the country’s state-run news agency, which reported that officials will “keep closely watching the speech and behavior of the U.S.” In an official statement, the news agency claimed the North Korean army “is about to take” action to resist “frantic moves” by the United States.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff spokesman, Roh Jae-cheon, advised North Korea to abandon its aggressive stance. He warned that a “stern and strong” counterstrike by the United States and South Korea would follow any attack on Guam, but did not provide details of the strategy. Japanese officials maintained that their military is capable of shooting down missiles headed for Guam.

Trump may be facing his first international crisis as president. Though he campaigned as an isolationist, the president has promoted a strong military since taking office.
