    Kim Jong Un threatens nuclear strike on U.S., Trump gets M.A.D.

    Kim Jong Un threatens nuclear strike on U.S., Trump gets M.A.D.

    Trump tweet: My nuclear button is bigger, and it works.

    North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un threatened the U.S. with a nuclear strike, bragging that North Korean had the capability to deliver a nuclear warhead to the entire U.S. mainland. What’s more, he suggested it could be done on a moment’s notice, as the “button” was on his desk.

    It was posturing in the very present tense, as there is no indication North Korea has that capability today, even though it has the components: Nuclear bombs and intercontinental ballistic missiles.

    Putting the two together and landing that missile in the U.S. is not within North Korea’s current capabilities, but given recent advances, could be within a matter of months and certainly within a year or two.

    The reaction to Kim’s threat was muted in the American media. Kind of a “there he goes again” type shrug of the shoulders to the reality that decades of diplomacy trying to stop this development have been for nothing.

    Trump initially was muted in his first reaction, saying “we’ll see” when questioned over New Year’s. But yesterday he tweeted his response: My button is bigger than yours, and it works.

    Our idiot media is fact checking whether Trump actually has a nuclear “button“.

    There are fainting spells all over the place.

    Trump is being accused to trying to start a nuclear war, but in fact it’s just the opposite. He’s reminding the mouse that roared not even to think about it.

    It’s not the type of verbiage we’re used to hearing — how much more “sane” our Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) policy towards the Soviets and now Russia/China sounded. But it basically was the same point: Don’t even think about going nuclear on us or we’ll annihilate you. And we mean it.

    After Trump’s tweet, I think Kim Jong Un understands Trump means it, unlike Obama.

    M.A.D. kept the peace for generations.

    On the plus side it’s likely only California will get hit. Would people even notice if California was struck?

      Delivery system? Sailing a nuke into San Fran bay, San Pedro, Puget Sound or NYC harbor would do quite well. Oh, if LA please inform Un to choose a day of Santa Ana winds so the package stays in LA.

        He’s especially comical since he’s not even in America.

          Why…comrade…er… citizen…er… well.. Rags being on the Last Frontier, where we can see Russia from here, means it is easier to collude with the former owners of Russian America. MiG fighters used to do touch and go’s at the Air Force station at Kotzebue in the good old days. I make a hell of a lot more money with my day job so I’ll leave the lame jokes to you.

            Rags…. there are so many funny stories of Alaskans being told they need visas to attend colleges in the Lower-48, questions about what currency to use in Alaska… on and on…

            The one good thing is that in many dangerous areas of the world Alaska is not thought of as being in the USA…

      Probably would get some notice. Concern, for many non-CA citizens, might be another issue though.

    I don’t have Twitter and don’t follow anybody, but that has to be the best Tweet of all time.

    Obama and his administration liked to write “sternly worded” letters. I would be curious to see their verbiage compared to Trump’s tweets. Also curious if Neera Tanden’s type of “diplomacy” is why the Ayatollah is much wealthier?

    Someone should put a bounty on Un’s head and a Blackbird stealth plane should drop leaflets throughout the North.

    Maybe someone in the military would take care of the problem Little Buddy.
