If a bodybuilder of massive proportions is at a bar and overhears a pip squeak who’s had a few too many bad mouthing him, most likely the muscle man will end the “discussion” with just a few words. The big man has nothing to prove and everything to lose in terms of how he is viewed if he acts too harshly.
Now, imagine that the same pip squeak knocks on the strongman’s door and threatens to throw a bottle of flaming gasoline through the bedroom window of the strongman’s child. Chances are pretty good that said pip squeak is going to find out what heaven really looks like.
On the world stage, North Korea is the pip squeak and the United States is the strongman. Ever since the truce (the Korean War never officially ended), North Korea has indoctrinated it’s people to hate the United States, they have endorsed “Hate America Month,” and when tourists visit they are followed by “minders” who only allow the tourists to go to select places. If that were not bad enough, the tour is filled with outright lies about America. The lies so bad that even ISIS does not use North Korean quotes, statistics, nor news feeds when making propaganda videos, which should tell the world something.
Well North Korea has managed to arrive at Trumps front door with a bottle of fuel and a lighter by saying on North Korean TV this past New Years “Research and development of cutting edge arms equipment is actively progressing and ICBM rocket test launch preparation is in its last stage,” which is a direct quote from madman/leader Kim Jong-Un. This prompted Trump, who uses Twitter like Roosevelt used the then “new” technology of radio for his “Fireside Chats” with the American people, to respond that what Kim Jong-Un(stable) wanted.
North Korea just stated that it is in the final stages of developing a nuclear weapon capable of reaching parts of the U.S. It won't happen!

Under normal circumstances, a family with a background such as Kim Jong-Un(wise), a certain amount of reverence and awe would be bestowed even if the family was despised. His grandfather rose from nothing, he passed the dream to his son in what is sadly common in some nations, and now the grandson has stepped up. However, these are not normal circumstances. His grandfather rose to become a terrible dictator who ruined his nation, and his son became the laughing stock of the political world clear up until his death.
Grimly, much power was held even beyond the laughing and some of the worst prisons in the world were set up. Some of these places are every bit as desolate and hopeless as Nazi concentration camps, they simply lack the ovens. In place is a law that says that if a family member is convicted of say, speaking badly against the North Korean government, they may be locked away for life, their kids may lacked away for life, and so may THEIR kids. That would be three generations, for those taught math in North Korean schools.
Those imprisoned are not even allowed to ask what they are in prison for at any point under dire threat, and this is the structure that Kim Jong-Un(intelligent) has continued. He raised the evil a notch by killing his own uncle and shooting his defense chief with a battleship cannon. There are times of the year when it is all but mandated to dance happily in the streets, and they throw dance parties when nuclear missile tests go well. The government oversees every aspect of a person’s life, even what hair style they MUST wear in order to look like their “dear leader.”
All of this and many other acts equally bizarre have been ignored by America and the world. Even the illegal nuclear bomb tests were sanctioned for, but not acted on with aggression towards North Korea. It is a very libertarian principle to not engage in any unneeded violence, even when nations like India or Pakistan break such a non nuclear rule. However, Kim Jong-Un(attractive) is now openly threatening the United States.
This has been going on during most of Obama’s lead and he has not addressed it. That is not to say that Obama should have sent troops over on the next boat, but more could have been done to stop the hateful insanity. Trump rose swiftly to defend his nation, unlike Obama when North Korea has said such things before.
Other than elaborate dance shows, North Korea has almost nothing. They claim greatness, yet they can not grow their own food and blame sanctions for this. Can a great nation not grow it’s own food if sanctioned in such a climate? Most of North Korea, even the capital Pyongyang, has little or no electricity. It is not uncommon to see satellite images of North Korea pitch black at night over most of it’s areas because there is no power.
A nation may run its affairs as it see’s fit, but when nuclear war is threatened by both North Korea and their somewhat handler China against the USA, then it is time for the threat to be taken more seriously. We have already seen what ignoring a threat from radical Islam has done to the worlds safety, lets not do it again.
None of this is to imply that Trump wants war. Trump wants nothing but peace, that is why he is planning to pull our boys and girls out from many of the nations that they are stranded to serve in, but when a nation openly declares that they are planning to use their newly found and kinda’ working nuclear weaponry systems upon America (which some suggest could happen due to Hawaii, though Kim Jong-Un(believable) claims the West Coast and beyond), then America needs to move to make sure that such a thing does not happen.
Sometimes, if America stays out of something, like the England and Irish mess that existed for so many decades, then the sides come to an agreement themselves.
This should have been done towards a great number of nations over the years, and things would be better if they had. Yet, when a nation who has been allowed to threaten America or anyone in the way that North Korea has done with nothing being done, when nuclear weapons are both upon the table and threatened, then perhaps the strongman needs to protect his home.
