Hello everyone Mike Owergreen and Russian Accent. Thanks for being with us. Our topic today is «US confrontation with North Korea». We will analyze Trump’s behavior and statement, and this is our case of study for today. We have good and real chance to see Trump in action, even with such a small opponent as Korea.
Trump is about bombing nuclear facility in North Corea. Kim Jong-un said that he would respond with a missle strike to the American territory, or the nearest territory is Guam island, where the Andrews airbase is located, but at first Trump said he will destroy launch milssle place on North Korean land.
From this moment on, the planned strikes have real targets , but before that, they were only talking about missile testing. So Trump made things worse. He declared that Kim Jong-un simply «will not get away with it», and the situation has changed.
Trump even makes mutually exclusive statements about «de-nuking», but probably nobody will believe him anymore.
Of course, China also worries about nuclear war in the region and makes a strong statement as well. Trump understands that he can not do anything with China, or even Russia, because they have their own nuclear weapons. Trump dreams of American hegemony, or may be american supremist? Here, Trump understands that he is not supported not only in the US, but in the world, and he believes that he needs to identify the right threats to the world.
Barack Obama said that the greatest threat is global warming? Trump thinks otherwise. North Korea has not been frightened by the United States and continues making bellicose statements that, in the event of an attack, it will respond by attacking Guam with four nuclear missiles. This is a threat, and in this case an attack on the DPRK does not make any sense. These are not acceptable losses, and what Lindsey Graham said, that “if thousands die, they’re going to die over there” is no longer true. The losses will be huge and the US will be responsible for them.
This is not Iraq. Trump again tries to intimidate Kim Jong Yin. In the media, it seems that a certain parity has been achieved, despite the fact that the United States is thousands of times more powerful than North Korea. Trump is trying to win this situation by claiming that American nuclear weapons are the best. Finally, we even see the fear of the inhabitants of Guam, which already terrifies Trump himself and he begins to lose his fighting fervor.
Trump shows that he is not going to attack first. He begins to feel pressure from all sides. Trump states that he will wait until August 15 to see what Kim Jong-un does. At the same time, international politicians try to cool down Trump’s hot head and then he understands that this is all because of him, but he does not admit it. Is that happen really because of him? Now we could talk more about Trump and how he is acting.
After Charlottesville some of a politicians said Trump’s reaction is not enough is too late and too little. On Monday, Kenneth Frazier, the CEO of Merck (MRK), joined the growing list of executives who feel compelled by Trump’s words and policies to take a stand against him. Frazier, one of the country’s most prominent black business leaders, quit Trump’s manufacturing council to “take a stand against intolerance and extremism.»
That appeared to be a reference to Trump’s statement over the weekend blaming the deadly violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, on “many sides” after neo-Nazis and white nationalists clashed with counter-protesters. Trump lashed out at Frazier within minutes, saying the resignation would give him “more time to LOWER RIPOFF DRUG PRICES!»
We see Trump is upset. And many people understand now he can not handle the situation neither in US or Korean crisis. Thanks for being with us. Mike owergreen and Russian Accent at the beginning of judgement day August 15th.
