“North Korea disrespected the wishes of China & its highly respected President when it launched, though unsuccessfully, a missile today. Bad!,” Trump said in a post on Twitter after the launch.
It is no surprise that North Korea is one big pain in the butt. Kim Jong-Un is like the bully on the school playground who doesn’t listen to warnings and doesn’t care about following the rules. He’s going to continue to do what he wants, when he wants until someone like President Trump “puts him in his place”. I don’t think the Fat Boy even has a clue about who he’s dealing with.
President Trump is NOT Obama and he is NOT going to put up with Kim Jong-Un’s bullshit much longer. Trump warned China if they didn’t do something about ‘the problem’, he would. Looks like North Korea is about to find out that Trump means business.

The reclusive and rogue communist regime in North Korea just attempted yet another launch of a ballistic missile, and like many others before, it ultimately failed and fell harmlessly into the Sea of Japan, according to ABC News.
The missile was reportedly fired from a central North Korean site known as Pukchang and traveled an estimated 18 to 25 miles before breaking apart and falling into the water.
“North Korea fired an unidentified missile from a site in the vicinity of Bukchang in Pyeongannam-do (South Pyeongan Province) in the northeastern direction at around 5:30 a.m today,” declared a statement from the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff, according to Yonhap News. “It is estimated to have failed.”
The South Korean military noted that its forces remained on high alert and were watching for any further provocative acts from the regime of dictator Kim Jong Un.
Fox News reported that U.S. officials identified the projectile as being a modified Scud-based missile known as the KN-17, which is believed to be in the process of being developed as an anti-ship missile.
The KN-17 is a rather small, single-stage liquid-fueled missile that, while still quite lethal if it hits a target, is a far cry from the more advanced, multi-stage, solid-fueled ballistic missiles that have stoked concern among the U.S. government and American allies.
North Korea had previously announced that it would press forward with ballistic missile test launches in spite of multiple United Nations resolutions prohibiting it, not to mention the increasing array of military forces gathering in the region to counter their provocative actions.
The White House stated that the test launch was not a surprise and it would be monitoring the situation closely, though it remained unclear if any sort of action on the part of U.S. forces against North Korea would be undertaken in response to the failed launch.
What’s more important know is how North Korea or Kim Jong-Un react to the setback. Of course, they may claim they blew up the missile “intentionally”. What is this the fourth or fifth unsuccessful missile launch since March? Are you still gullible to think those U.N. talks are working? Come on man! Get real!
Kim Jong-Un’s ballistic missile test came AFTER Secretary of State Rex Tillerson warned the U.N. that failure to curb North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs could lead to “catastrophic consequences”.
You still think the Fat Boy is worried? Nope. He still thinks “do nothing” or “play nice or else” Obama is in charge. It’s time for Trump to send a clear a message to Kim Jong-Un.
Oh, and if you don’t think this was a carefully thought out and planned event by the Fat Boy, then you need to get your head out of the sand. This nuclear ballistic test by North Korea took place at the end of the U.S.-South Korea joint military drills. Almost as if Kim Jong-Un said, I’m still here! What are you going to do about it?
Trump has praised Chinese leader Xi Jinping for “trying very hard” to rein it in. But now, Trump is going to do what he has to do – send a REAL message to Fat Boy or Kim Jong-Un. Talk is cheap. Actions speak louder than words, just ask Syria or ISIS.
When Syria didn’t listen, Trump sent a strong message – 59 Tomahawk missiles! BOOM! When ISIS didn’t listen, Trump sent a MOAB or “mother of all bombs” to in Afghanistan! KABOOM! Does the Fat Boy really want to know what’s next? Seriously?
Oh, and if anyone thinks that the UN “discussions” are going to amount to anything, more than a hill of beans…get real! The UN has been condeming North Korea’s behavior since 2006, when they launched their first nuclear test. In fact the Security Council has condemned all missile launches by Pyongyang. Like that’s made a big difference, right?
At the UN meeting, Rex Tillerson responded:
“We will not negotiate our way back to the negotiating table with North Korea, we will not reward their violations of past resolutions, we will not reward their bad behavior with talks.”
This is going to be a REALLY BIG SHEW!
We have an armada, very powerful. We have submarines, very powerful, far more powerful than the aircraft carrier, that I can tell you. And we have the best military people on Earth.
Maybe it’s time for the Fat Boy to sing….
