President Trump’s latest warning to North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un included quite a display of what he called “total dominance.” Standing in front of a U.S. flag and a B-2 stealth bomber, a plane capable of dropping nuclear bombs, his address to hundreds at Joint Base Andrews had specific messages for Jong-Un.
“Our aviators have given America total dominance of the air and space no matter where we fly. Now when our enemies hear the F-35’s engines, when they’re roaring overhead, their souls will tremble and they will know the day of reckoning has arrived.”
The president and his top advisers have repeatedly said that the military option is not the preferred method of dealing with North Korea. Yet Kim Jong-Un continues his almost suicidal weapons tests, making it more difficult for the world to go on ignoring him.
National Security Advisor McMaster spoke with reporters just hours before the president spoke at Andrews. He told them that based on the latest missile launch from the country “’North Korea remains one of the world’s most urgent and dangerous security problems.”
He went on to say what President Trump has acknowledged as well, “for those who have said and have been commenting about the lack of a military option, there is a military option. Now, it’s not what we would prefer to do, so what we have to do is call on all nations, call on everyone to do everything we can to address this global problem short of war.’
It is clear that the president feels secure with America’s power;
“After seeing your capabilities and commitment here today,’ he told them, ‘I am more confident than ever that our options in addressing this threat are both effective and overwhelming. America has dominated both air and space like no other nation in history. Our air superiority is unquestioned. Not merely because we have the best equipment, but because we have the best people by far.”
