PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP repeatedly addressed the possibility of a U.S. nuclear attack on North Korea in a private call last month with Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, according to a transcript of the call obtained by The Intercept.

“We can’t let a madman with nuclear weapons let on the loose like that. We have a lot of firepower, more than he has times 20, but we don’t want to use it,” Trump told Duterte. (In fact, the U.S. has 6,800 nuclear warheads and North Korea is thought to have about 10.) “You will be in good shape,” he added.

“We have a lot of firepower over there. We have two submarines — the best in the world — we have two nuclear submarines — not that we want to use them at all,” Trump said. “I’ve never seen anything like they are, but we don’t have to use this, but he could be crazy so we will see what happens.”

The call took place on April 29.

Please bomb North Korea Now.

 

Please bomb North Korea now.

This is the most critical timing for the United States should not miss. If we don’t stop North Korea, South Korea will be communized. Actually, whole Korea will be absorbed to China. Then, people in Asia will not trust U.S. any more for their national securities. Then, Taiwan, Philippine, Malaysia, and Vietnam would like to be pro- China than pro-U.S. Then, China will control South China Sea area politically, militarily and economically. Because 80 % of world commercial airline and marine shipments which are passing through the China Sea, eventually, China can control whole world, and Chinese Yuan can replace U.S. dollars as international money. This will bring economic collapse of the United States because we have printed out too much money already.

SEOUL, South Korea (AFP) — North Korea proclaimed Tuesday that it had successfully tested an intercontinental ballistic missile — a watershed moment in its push to develop a nuclear weapon capable of hitting the United States.

US experts said the device could reach Alaska, and the launch, which came as the United States prepared to mark its Independence Day, triggered a Twitter outburst from US President Donald Trump who urged China to “end this nonsense once and for all.”

 The North has long sought to build a rocket capable of delivering an atomic warhead to the continental United States — something that Trump has vowed “won’t happen.”

Its possession of a working ICBM will force a recalculation of the strategic threat it poses.

The “landmark” test of a Hwasong-14 missile was overseen by leader Kim Jong Un, an emotional female announcer said on state Korean Central Television.

It reached an altitude of 2,802 kilometers and flew 933 kilometers, she added.

The North was “a strong nuclear power state” and had “a very powerful ICBM that can strike any place in the world,” she said.

There are still doubts whether the North can miniaturize a nuclear weapon sufficiently to fit it onto a missile nose cone, or whether it has mastered the technology needed for it to survive the difficult re-entry into the Earth’s atmosphere.

But the isolated, impoverished country has made great progress in its missile capabilities since the ascension to power of Kim, who has overseen three nuclear tests and multiple rocket launches.

In response to the launch but before the announcement, Trump asked on Twitter: “Does this guy have anything better to do with his life?”

When North Korean warhead reaches California, this guy will still stick to his Twitter and whine.
