On the second day of the UN General Assembly (UNGA) meeting, President Trump and his team signaled to North Korea that the largest military in the world isn’t playing games.
President Trump and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis want North Korea to take the United States, and its threat of military options against the rogue regime, seriously, if their remarks on Tuesday are to be believed.
In a speech to the UN General Assembly (UNGA) reported on by NTK Network, President Trump said “Rocket Man” Kim Jong-un is on a “suicide mission,” and said the U.S. could “destroy” North Korea if necessary:
This came after Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis said on Tuesday morning that the U.S. would use military options when North Korean missiles become a threat to the U.S., its territories, or its allies:
“Those missiles are not directly threatening any of us,” Mattis said Monday when asked why the military didn’t shoot them down. “The bottom line is that, when the missiles — were they to be a threat, whether it be to U.S. territory, Guam, obviously Japan — Japan’s territory, that would elicit a different response from us,” he said.
After a brief detente a few weeks ago, the U.S. and North Korea are back on the track of escalating words and military exercises that have the world on edge.
