When President Trump recently visited with the President of China, Xi Jingping, he made it perfectly clear if China didn’t take care of the ‘problem’, Trump would. Well, it looks like China is stepping up to the plate.
In the unofficial mouthpiece of the China’s Communist Party, ‘The Global Times’ a recent statement suggests if North Korea so much as tries to launch or ‘test’ another ballistic missile, North Korea will ‘suffer the consequences’. In fact it basically said the game of chicken is coming to an end and it will not be pretty for North Korea. In fact, the article stated that once Kim Jong-Un sends off another ballistic missile, the U.S. would respond. Then, North Korea’s regime would make a life-or-death decision and the U.S. would ‘play them like a fiddle’.
Looks like President Trump’s ‘The Art of the Deal’ is once again proving to be very effective.
H/T Conservative Tribune:
Tensions on the Korean Peninsula have reached dangerous levels over the past few weeks, sparking concern in China that a second Korean War may be right around the corner.
China has no desire to see the United States topple the North Korean regime and plant a pro-Western government right on China’s borders. In fact, it appears that China may be taking actions to rein in North Korea.
An editorial published in the Global Times, a newspaper widely believed to be the unofficial mouthpiece of China’s Communist Party, warned that North Korea would suffer if it conducted another nuclear test.
“The game of chicken between Washington and Pyongyang has come to a breaking point. If North Korea carries out a sixth nuclear test as expected, it is more likely than ever that the situation will cross the point of no return. All stakeholders will bear the consequences, with Pyongyang sure to suffer the greatest losses,” the editorial read.
The editorial seemed to suggest that China wouldn’t be surprised if the U.S. launched a strike against North Korea if the country conducted another nuclear test — and perhaps more importantly, the article never suggested that China would respond to such an action.
“Once the US launched surgical strikes against North Korea’s nuclear and missile facilities, the Pyongyang regime will be forced to make a life-or-death decision. By then, if North Korea does not resort to strategic retaliation, its deterrence will lose ground and Washington will play it like a fiddle,” stated the article.
China is in a tough spot right now. Right now, their best option is to exert whatever pressure they have to get North Korea to calm down before the United States takes action.
“The North Korea nuclear issue is like a puzzle filled with bombs. Pyongyang must not strike a match and detonate it. What it needs is big wisdom to realize a soft landing.”
You got that right! Because if North Korea thinks they can mess with Trump, they will be dead wrong. I would not want to be the one playing ‘chicken’ with President Trump. Trump sent 59 Tomahawk missiles to Syria. He sent a MOAB to ISIS in Afghanistan. Does the Fat Boy really want to find out what’s next? Does North Korea really want to see what happens when you mess with the best military in the world? …Think again!
President Trump in ‘The Art of the Deal’ states: “Deals are my art form!”
The game of chicken is about to be over for Kim Jong-Un. The Fat Boy is going to be begging President Trump soon. Then, Trump is going to end up saying, “No, no, no. Here’s the way it works: We leave, you get nothing, that’s the deal”
What’s the last line in ‘The Art of the Deal’?: “Don’t get me wrong. I also plan to keep making deals, big deals, and right around the clock.”
