The tensions continue to rise between North Korean and the United States as the unstable dictator, Kim Jong-un, continues to press his luck with President Donald Trump. Hoping to get ahead of the chubby tyrant’s threats, Trump summoned all 100 Senate members to the White House, and here’s what we know about the briefing and the threat North Korea just followed through on.
North Korea’s spoiled chubby dictator made a bold threat recently, and now, he’s acted on it. Mad World News previously reported that Kim Jong-un was threatening to kidnap Americans in the region as a show of strength. That threat came directly from a North Korean defector as a warning.
Well, the fat dictator has reportedly made that threat a reality as USA Today reports that a former Korean-American professor was arrested at Pyongyang International Airport as he was attempting to leave the country. The reason for his arrest was not immediately available, but it’s enough to know that a U.S. citizen has been arrested in North Korea, raising the number of Americans now detained by Kim Jong-un’s regime to three and adding to rising tensions between Washington and Pyongyang.
However, that isn’t all that the dictator is doing to irritate Donald Trump. Reportedly, North Korea is on the verge of yet another nuclear test. However, a ruling Chinese Communist Party newspaper warned North Korea Tuesday against conducting another nuclear test, saying that would likely propel events past the “point of no return.”
Unfortunately, if there’s anything that North Korea’s fat little tyrant loves, it’s conflict and aggression, and he made that clear when instructions were given to detain Americans. However, President Donald Trump isn’t going to tolerate it much longer, and his recent move proves that he’s more than serious when it comes to North Korea’s threats against Americans.
The entire US Senate has been called to the White House on Wednesday to be briefed by senior administration officials about the brewing confrontation with North Korea. According to The Guardian, the unusual briefing underlines the urgency with which the Trump administration is treating the threat posed by Pyongyang’s continuing development of nuclear weapons and missile technology.
Trump had previously settled on the idea that China could persuade the North Korean tyrant to act in a more level-headed manner, but he may be switching tunes now with the kidnapping of an American and another potential nuclear test. Satellite images have shown a huge increase in activity at North Korea’s nuclear test site, and it appears that President Trump is not going to tolerate a nuclear weapon strike by the communist country.
The meeting in the White House appears to be in the best interest of the American public, especially those abroad in Korea. Senators are to be briefed by Defense Secretary James Mattis and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Wednesday. Such briefings for the entire senate are not unprecedented, but it is very rare for them to take place in the White House, which does not have large secure facilities for such classified sessions as Congress.
The good news is that the United States appears to be taking precautionary measures to stop a nuclear war and North Korea hasn’t ever had a very successful missile test as of yet. The bad news is that the spoiled fat kid in North Korea probably won’t care about any actions taken by the United States. He hasn’t made any changes yet, other than continuing to make threats and conducting failed missile tests. If tensions do not ease, North Korea is going to end up drawing the short straw, and the fat kid is going to get the spanking he deserves.
